Tonight we went to see Kinky Boots. I’ve seen it before, and the kid loves the music and asked me to promise her that I would take her. I was glad to go again because the end of the show is so uplifting. It was a great end to our trip here.
And then we went back to our hotel, past the Fox News headquarters and saw that the Republicans were not, in fact, being trounced. In fact, people like Ted Cruz are holding on. They’re holding the Senate and the House is a tight race. A tight race I never saw coming – despite the dirty tricks, despite the election two years ago. I thought it was going to turn around.
People have been saying that you get the government you deserve, but I still have to believe the majority of Americans don’t deserve what’s being done to them. But then again, maybe I’m wrong, because I didn’t think racists would ever live openly and proud in my lifetime.
