WTF 2016: Staving off the apocalypse
Today's the day that America gets one last chance not to elect Donald J. Trump for the position of leader of the free world. Even if Trump loses, we're not home free. My pal Salty nailed it as usual. Even if Clinton wins...
...we accomplished the bare minimum.I've been repeatedly scolded during this election cycle, even by folks whom I had considered friends, for worshiping Clinton or being willfully blind or ignorant to her "evil." But...
But Donald J. Trump :: a know-nothing conman misogynist racist … still got more than fucking zero percent of the vote for President of the United States of America.
How is that possible? How is it possible that one of our two major parties put forth a candidate who was so demonstrably unqualified … and whose only appeal was unsheathed hate rage?
There are no take-backs :: this thing totally happened … some of us just voted for a race baiting women hating lunatic. Instead of killing baby-Hitler :: we raised him up on the plastic pedestal of tabloids and reality television … then did nothing to stop his ascent to demagogue in chief.
None of Ms. Clinton’s faults :: real or contrived … are even worthy of mention in the shadow of Donald J. Trump’s towering horror.Yep. What Salty said.
This isn’t a political website … this will never be a political website. Voting for Hillary Clinton today isn’t about politics :: it’s about self preservation … it’s about rudimentary decency.
And, as mentioned here the other day, John Oliver nailed it too.
Don't blow it, America. If you do, all of the whiskey in the world ain't gonna help.
But I would like to end this on a positive note, so here we go:
And if you still consider yourself to be my friend after all of this is over, know that I love you and will continue to love you, even if you don't vote for "my" candidate. We're all in this together.
