Surely there's a word for that. I'll spend my time thinking about that instead of the pit of despair that is the House of Reps.

Yeah, that. And my rep is one of those weasel-y "moderates" who hadn't made any public statements of approval of the AHCA this entire time, so I had this faint hope that he might do the right thing in the end, but no.

A good chunk of my free time and discretionary spending will now be dedicated to taking him down.

I can't even hang out in my nice ultra-liberal discussion forums/slack channels because it's too painful.

But I did decide it was time to become a card-carrying Satanist and throw some money at their reproductive rights fund in Pence's name. (They have a version that goes the president as well; I figured the VP donation was more appropriate.)

It's immensely disappointing, painful and horrifying to watch even from afar. I am so sorry.

I spent the last hour debating whether turning on Rachel Maddow would make me feel better or worse. I ended up reading gossip about the British Royals instead. I have no idea if any of the soap opera stuff I just read is true, but at least reading it doesn't make it impossible to breathe, or to think straight, or to sleep, all of which are a lot more difficult after cursory looks at FB and Twitter.

Does it count as an existing condition if it's only been going on for 6 months?

(I'll see myself out.)

I agree.

Instead of watching the news, I am plotting my revenge, which consists mainly of NUKE IT FROM ORBIT, IT'S THE ONLY WAY TO BE SURE.
