Fear & Loathing On The Campaign Trail

Donald Trump continues to melt-down on stupid issues because his Trump-sized ego is simply incapable of allowing him to stay on message. Now, he’s in a tit-for-tat with a woman he called fat & ugly. This was a deliberate set-up by Hillary Clinton’s campaign. The mainstream media and Donald f-ing Trump are all too happy to play along. Seriously? Is this guy 7 years old? He can’t ignore a stupid, simple-minded and obvious affront to his self-image, so he jumps in the sewer and gets mired in childish distractions, when all he needs to do to win – is stay on message.

He shouldn’t be saying a word about anything other than how Hillary Clinton wants to continue & even increase the failed policies of Barack Obama and how he is different. Flex on the issues that earned him the support he so cherishes. “Hey everybody! I’m different!” That’s it. Nothing more, but he just can’t bring himself to let the dumb shit pass him by. When you choose between the lesser of two evils, evil always wins. To wit, Hunter S. Thompson:

That’s the real issue this time,” he said. “Beating Nixon. It’s hard to even guess how much damage those bastards will do if they get in for another four years.”

The argument was familiar, I had even made it myself, here and there, but I was beginning to sense something very depressing about it. How many more of these goddamn elections are we going to have to write off as lame, but “regrettably necessary” holding actions? And how many more of these stinking double-downer sideshows will we have to go through before we can get ourselves straight enough to put together some kind of national election that will give me and the at least 20 million people I tend to agree with a chance to vote for something, instead of always being faced with that old familiar choice between the lesser of two evils?

Now with another one of these big bogus showdowns looming down on us, I can already pick up the stench of another bummer. I understand, along with a lot of other people, that the big thing this year is Beating Nixon. But that was also the big thing, as I recall, twelve years ago in 1960 – and as far as I can tell, we’ve gone from bad to worse to rotten since then, and the outlook is for more of the same.
