Counsels of Despair

I pass this on not because I agree or disagree with it but because I think it captures where a lot of people, a lot of our readers, are at the moment. From TPM Reader DW

I have lost all faith in people. The Democratic voters are determined to screw this up. If Bernie doesn’t win the nomination, they will pout and say it’s rigged. If he is the nominee, he will probably lose because he will be attacked as being a socialist or whatever. I’m just gonna make my money, take care of the people I care about and pray I can survive six more years of this madness. I don’t know what else to do. I feel like caring too much will make me go insane.
