I know the election is still a long way off, but maybe it's not too soon to give up on the idea of Democracy in America. The ISIL assault on Paris seems to have benefited the Idiot Trump, as though we needed to be reminded that a simple-minded barrage of simple minded bravado is always popular whenever we're reminded that we're not the undisputed masters of the Universe. Keep 'em out, Throw them out, build a wall and bomb them to dust 'cause we're all about "freedom."
In fact just when I was beginning to think this hair-Club horror was about to make the country snap out of it's boozy delirium and come to it's alleged senses, a new Bloomberg Poll seems to remind us that Republican dementia progresses apace. Trump is seen as the one best able to deal with the kind of terrorists the French efficiently rounded up and killed in a couple of days, Trump with his total lack of experience or knowledge in any distantly related matter. Perhaps the public subscribes to the Maoist notion that one learns from doing and education is meaningless. Perhaps the public doesn't like to be reminded that things are never simple and easy to deal with and it takes more than a massively ignorant blowhard to blow away our problems. Perhaps stupid people are just more confident in stupid people, I don't know.
Anyway the wimpy, effeminate, quiche eating, French, Nancy Boy we mocked not long ago for telling us Saddam didn't have nukes or the ability to make or deliver them, doesn't seem so cowardly now, does he - or as inept as we are.
But it's not all Trump, apparently the idiots think Carson has a better personality for the job although most of us have still to discern one at all behind the deadpan and the weird emotionless tone of voice he uses to tell us lies and complain it's our fault when he's shown to be more ignorant that anyone who has ever run for public office.
No, I think it's time to give up. We're not a viable nation, forever snatching disaster from the jaws of success, ever unable to tell a charlatan, a phony, an incompetent from a leader. This guy lacks the experience because he was only a Senator and a Harvard Law graduate - but these guys who have never held office? Mavericks! The guy who tells an assailant not to shoot him but shoot the other guy? How brave under fire! The guy who inherited a real estate business and couldn't pass a citizenship test? Presidential! He will just fire our enemies!
Forgetabout it. There's only so long you can support a family member who keeps screwing up. If the world were a family, America would be living in the attic and fed through a slot in the door. I'm tired of it.. I want to go live in one of those hollow pyramids before we start putting people in boxcars and behind walls and nuking Canada. There's nothing left to save here.
