    a pertinent scripture - which I quickly lift from the Sojourners mailings I get.  They inevitably involve service and social justice, so it only takes a few seconds.  ;)

    The answer I am dying to give to the repeated questions "How did this happen?" and "How did he steal this election?" is

    Did you or anyone you know dedicate several hours each week for months making phone calls for your candidate?  Did you volunteer to check on committed voters to make sure they got to the polls?  Did any of you work for him from the primary season until Tuesday?  Did you knock on doors or even make persuasive small talk at the grocery store, coffee shop or sporting events?  Did you even set up an automatic monthly contribution to his campaign?

    That's how you steal elections these days.

    But, like you, I need to keep my job.  

    The truth always matters.
