Say goodnight, Sarah Palin

“I think that this situation absolutely requires a really futile and stupid gesture be done on somebody’s part!” — Eric “Otter” Stratton in Animal House.
Sarah Palin will inject herself into Wisconsin politics like Churchill’s infamous plague bacillus in an attempt to dumb down voters in Wisconsin’s First Congressional District.
There is just no embarrassing the Grace Allen intellect with the Vampira/Elvira soul or her fellow Trumpbots. Palin will attempt to reduce the intelligence quotient of southeastern Wisconsin to punish Paul Ryan for expressing reservations about jumping on the Trump train to oblivion. Palin will campaign for a piece of malware named Paul Nehlen, a man who poses uncomfortably on a Harley Davidson with fake tattoos.
(“Ryan challenger begs Dems for vote on Madison radio.” — Mediatrackers)
Comrade Nichols, Peter Barca, and Russia Today propagandist Ed Schultz are exchanging high-fives. If the Trumpbots work this right, they’ll swap Paul Ryan for Nancy Pelosi and call it an even trade.
Few have thought longer or more deeply about our American democracy than Paul Ryan or offered more solutions. The newly minted Speaker led the fight against Obamacare when Trump was buying access to the Clintons.
More state’s evidence that Trump promises an authoritarian regime of regimentation, not persuasion. Trump compiles enemies lists while Ryan preaches opportunity and inclusion.
The Blaska Policy Werkes can appreciate that the Republican Party may need to dial down foreign interventionism. Perhaps we’ve been out-sourcing jobs through liberal trade agreements. Policy matters but character reveals!
“Even if you find things to appreciate in Trumpism,” as has conservative columnist Russ Douthat of the New York Times, “the man who has raised those issues is still unfit for an office as awesomely powerful as the presidency of the United States.”
His unfitness starts with basic issues of temperament. It encompasses the race-baiting, the conspiracy theorizing, the flirtations with violence, and the pathological lying that have been his campaign-trail stock in trade.
But above all it is Trump’s authoritarianism that makes him unfit for the presidency — his stated admiration for Putin and the Chinese Politburo, his promise to use the power of the presidency against private enterprises, the casual threats he and his surrogates toss off against party donors, military officers, the press, the speaker of the House, and more. … Trump is actively campaigning as a Caesarist. — “The Conservative Case Against Trump.”
I shudder that Donald Trump may have the IRS and FBI at his disposal.
