RE: Worrying About a Trump Victory? Don't.
Pictures of his sons posing with dead lions and other large animals are being shown on national TV now.

That's not going to do him any good either.

That will play well with his constituency and not so much with the rest. I simply don’t watch news played on TV so thanks for that tidbit.

An excellent compilation FC - many thanks for illuminating just how vapid (and vacuous) the entire bank of Hillary criticism amounts to. But that wall of sh_t shouldn't stand by itself blocking the sun - Hillary's achievements are significant and warrant a wall of their own

Hillary's agenda has been to make a living in the public sphere improving the common welfare - by her lights, certainly, and not in ways everyone would agree with, but generally steering for the betterment of civilization.

Trump's agenda has always been and always will be to bludgeon the public sphere extracting what will improve Trump's material wealth and the public adoration of Trump. The isn't a molecule of civic spirit anywhere inside that glob of mindless self-infatuated cells.

Hillary isn't perfect. Trump is - but his perfection is in being a perfect catastrophe. I'll take imperfection, thanks - it's more human.

Au contraire. Most useful derail EVA!

I've just had a major epiphany!

I finally get why people are voting for Trump.

Unsure

Trump is Murika's earmuffs.

Not so fast. That would constitute an insult to Muffs and presume Murika has an intellect and taste it doesn't actually possess. Muffs has a fine grasp of the absurd and plays it with the deftness of a virtuoso musician - and some of us have the right ear for that and can appreciate (and even accompany) the cacaphony. Trump on the other hand is tone deaf to the absurd of any dimension, especially his own, and while the Democratic Party and other political arms can play the clueless Mr. Trump like a cracked violin, Murika ain't in on the mirth. Murika would never vote for a Muffs - it hasn't the brains for it. You'll have to get out your shovel and go find another epiphany 'cause that one's pyrite.

Good point; well made.

As an experiment, to use your own words...

Fair enough.

Muffsy does have his moments of bludgeoning the public sphere but in hindsight, X is more likely to be Heywood (minus the public adoration).

You've swayed me.

I change my vote.

Vote: lynch Trump

Vote: Muffsy for President

There's an entire world outside your county lines. It might behoove you to learn a little about it.

It will be before the election. He doesn't have the strength of character to hold his tongue, nor the wisdom to take on other views with equanimity. He's already splitting the party he represents, not but two weeks after the loud and lousy convention.

His lack of discipline will do him in.
