Paul Ryan says he’s been “dreaming” of Medicaid cuts since he was “drinking out of kegs” - Vox
So Ryan has dreamed of cutting Medicaid since college. https://t.co/fEUF0aeoPS This old line seems relevant http://pic.twitter.com/OH8MY5a0DL

Trump tweets anger at FBI while White House scrambles to contain fallout - POLITICO
Easy to see why he's puzzled: the FBI rigged the election for him, so he thought they would just keep on doing it https://t.co/YW7chgVwys

Paul Krugman: Our Unknown Country
The feeling of the moment:

"We still don’t know who will win the electoral college, although as I write this it looks — incredibly, horribly — as if the odds now favor Donald J. Trump. What we do know is that people like me, and probably like most readers of The New York Times, truly didn’t understand the country we live in. We thought that our fellow citizens would not, in the end, vote for a candidate so manifestly unqualified for high office, so temperamentally unsound, so scary yet ludicrous.

We thought that the nation, while far from having transcended racial prejudice and misogyny, had become vastly more open and tolerant over time.

We thought that the great majority of Americans valued democratic norms and the rule of law.

It turns out that we were wrong. There turn out to be a huge number of people — white people, living mainly in rural areas — who don’t share at all our idea of what America is about. For them, it is about blood and soil, about traditional patriarchy and racial hierarchy. And there were many other people who might not share those anti-democratic values, but who nonetheless were willing to vote for anyone bearing the Republican label.

I don’t know how we go forward from here. Is America a failed state and society? It looks truly possible. I guess we have to pick ourselves up and try to find a way forward, but this has been a night of terrible revelations, and I don’t think it’s self-indulgent to feel quite a lot of despair."
