Got inauguration depression? It’ll only last another 24 hours or so, though the mawkish commentary and trite news coverage from much of the mainstream media is hard to escape.

Here’s simple advice on passing the time from Al Cardenas, chairman of the American Conservative Union.


“Pray for our country and our leaders. Turn off the TV and spend quality time with family and loved ones,” Mr. Cardenas tells the Water Cooler. He also advises disgruntled folks to visit and sign up for the 40th annual Conservative Political Action Conference in mid-March, which should be a doozy.

And last but not least?

“Get excited about 2016,” Mr. Cardenas adds.
