Election 2016

Sometimes the Masses Do the Wrong Thing

esquire.comThere is a line of thought in this country that everything bad that happens in the world—especially as it regards terrorism—will redound to the credit of He, Trump, presumptive Republican nominee for President of the United States. The theory goes that, simply because he talks tough about subjects on which he knows precisely less than dick, that the attitude in his remarks will outweigh the complete lack of substantive ideas.

At this point, I’m not entirely prepared to dismiss this out of hand, but I am willing to say that anyone who truly falls for this line of horse-hockey, let alone anyone who actually believes it, is unquestionably a threat to common sense and public policy. If that makes me an elitist, so be it.
