Why "What Now?"

I swear, if I hear or read one more pundit or blogger ask a variant of "what now?" regarding the new President-elect, I'm going to virtually hurl a virtually heavy object in their virtual direction. "What now" is work. You know, the non-sexy stuff that doesn't garner big ratings or lots of hits. The stuff most American citizens do day-in and day-out with no fanfare. We get to work, period. This is not a friggin' TV show, it's real life -- not constantly-televised "reality show" life but actual boring day-to-day. Sorry it can't be more visually exciting for you pundits out there (particularly those on TV), but many of us have understood for a long time that politics isn't really the game many of you like to think it is. I suggest you now seek your "zazz" elsewhere.
