If he was running for sewage inspector.
I just heard on my local news that Trump is carrying my home state of Tennessee in the polls. Another of many good reasons to move the hell out of here and leave these crosseyed jeebus loving rednecks to their own devices, and their sisters.
In all of my years, and there have been a few, I can’t remember a presidential election that was this terrible. I mean yes, it’s almost always a choice between a douche bag and a shit sandwich (South Park reference) but this year it isn’t just that. It is a choice between a fricking reality TV character who is rich beyond our wildest dreams, a bigot, a racist, a misogynist, a liar, a fraud, a tax adjuster, a con man, a bully, a compulsive nitwit, the list just gets longer every day. And, a career politician who just happens to be female, wife of a former president, a democrat, and for many reasons I don’t even understand given these circumstances, not all that popular with the general public.
I really feel of the choices, and I agree they are both not that great… One of these people is worse than the other for our country, for our people, and the world at large, by an order of many magnitudes. I’m not going to say who, I think most of us can figure that out.
But the thing is I am left wondering, who in the hell in their right mind, thinks Trump is going to do anything to better our country? Given his character I can tell you the only thing he would accomplish is to further divide the gap between the wealthy and the not so wealthy. He would stack the deck so that he and other rich cronies like himself will be laughing all they way to the bank for the next millenia. That is if he doesn’t go whacko and make the U.S. the new Nazi state (“papers please”) or decide on a tweet that it’s a great idea to nuke everybody.
Are my wife and I, and a few of my blogging pals the only people who can see this? Where are the rest of us? Why in the hell is Trump carrying any state in the polls? How the fuck can this even be happening in a sane and rational world? Am I going to wake up in the morning and be told it was all just a new episode of the Twilight Zone? Please, please, please, let that be the case. I don’t think there is enough alcohol in the state of Tennessee to console myself and the wife if Trump wins this. I don’t think it will really happen, but this is so bizarre I am having trouble ciphering between reality and some dark bizzaro world fantasy.
Help Me! Send booze! Send money! I may need to move to Canada with Nan!
