N-A-S-T-Y

Over dinner with family the other night, we talked about what happens after Hillary Clinton wins.

I can't imagine at this point a world without the words Madame President. She's going to win, right?

After all, that nasty woman remark was enough to make everyone realize this guy, Donald Trump, really has been wasting our time all along. It's been a test, perhaps. Do we fail or pass on Election Day?

I say we pass, but then what happens after the election, when Trump has to concede. I don't think we will have issues with hanging chad this go-round, that is if it is a close call. But what I'm actually thinking about right now is what happens after all the election signs come down and we prep for the inauguration. I remember covering what turned out to be early tea-bagger rallies after Barack Obama was elected.

Frankly, those rallies scared me—I couldn't understand the number of people not able to accept Obama as their president. I was disgusted by the number of hateful anti-Obama signs, especially those that depicted him as a monkey. The racism that's boiled to the surface through the teabaggers with Obama's election and reelection Is disturbing and sad. Now I'm wondering what happens with Clinton's election? As women, I don't think we need teabaggers to remind us, as they did with racism, that misogyny is alive and well in the good ol' U.S.A. I don't need that.

Can't we just come up with a friendly agreement, if you are going to do a new set of rallies with a new president to hate, just remember how to spell nasty. That's N-A-S-T-Y.

Thanks.
