I suppose that I should explain myself, before I get dragged off to the local Home for the Bewildered. It was my habit to say that I was a little to the right of Attila the Hun, but recent events have shown that the whole political landscape has changed on me. Warmongering Republicans? I haven’t seen that since the days of Richard Milhouse Freakin’ Nixon. And neo-conservatives? They look and sound like constipated Stalinists to me. And the whole raft of candidates from the Konservative Klown Konspiracy, and how by Darwinian selection they have reduced themselves to the Kurrent Klown-in-Chief?
The whole mess had gotten to the point where I even changed my party affiliation from Pub to Dem, and voted for Bernie. Much good that did me. The First Felon rigged the Dem nomination fair and square. So it looks as though I can vote for the incompetent of my choice. Let’s see, I can vote for the Blowhard, who has absolutely no political experience, or for the First Felon, who has beaucoup experience, but whose policy decisions as S-o-S have led to the complete destabilization of the Mid-East, and have brought us to the brink of WWIII, with the players shaping up to be Turkey-NATO-U.S. on one side, and Syria-Russia-China on the other.
