Mike Adams, a conservative Texas blogger, greeted President-elect Donald Trump's victory with this post: "The evil, demonic, mass murdering Hillary Clinton has been defeated. This is VICTORY for all Americans, even the uninformed, ignorant morons who voted for Hillary."

But a few hours later, as the news sank in, Adams posted again with a more hopeful tone: "Today I declare 'LOVE WINS' because it is love for America that inspired us to collectively achieve this great victory." He said he was going to send Trump a video with his suggestions about how to reform health care.

Adams and thousands of others on the furious far-right of American political discourse, who have railed for years against the "criminal" and "treasonous" excesses of the federal government under President Obama, woke up Wednesday to find themselves in the odd position of being, essentially, insiders.
