Donald Trump's stunning victory in the presidential race is not just devastating to liberals in general and Hillary Clinton in particular. It is also concerning to many conservatives as well.
Trump's vision of America, the "Crippled America" of which he has written, is not one that most people share in all its particulars. But most Americans can see some plain, unvarnished truth in it, which is why Trump is on his way to the White House.
In a race to the bottom between the two least popular presidential nominees in modern history, voters did what most professional pundits said they would not: Unable to face the dreary and degrading prospect of electing the devil they did know, the latest champion of the corrupt Clinton clan, they took a risk on the untried candidate.
Clinton's belated departure from the national political scene is cause for celebration. Democrats will bemoan her loss, thinking rightly that they are in a perilous state if they cannot beat an opponent so flawed. Clinton's venality and mendacity proved an insurmountable obstacle for too many voters, as it should have.
