We’ve made it this far, which means we’re gonna make it.
We made it through an obscene string of losses.
We made it through the Iowa caucuses (which, as Dr. C pointed out, would be cooler if they were called caucci).
We made it through Dirty Grandpa.
We made it through the waist-deep wackdom of January.
And we’re still breathing, purring, singing, fighting for the joy. It’s ours, and it made itself known even amidst the muck:
