With only a few weeks left in this ugly presidential race to the bottom, Americans finally have a clear choice:
The Evil Queen vs. The Evil Clown.
She is the darling of the frightened bipartisan elites, and she is protected by their imperial guard, those in the media who ignore her sins to focus on Trump's.
Trump spent years bragging about his sexual prowess, acting like a pig (or
Both Clinton and Trump are statists. Both believe in using the federal hammer.
Clinton would appoint liberals to the
Trump promises to appoint conservatives to the court, but there's nothing remotely conservative about promising to use the government to carry out a political vendetta. That's something that the
So this is where we are now, an uncertain people in a post-constitutional society. The establishment center is corrupt and has been collapsing for years. And the people, tired of their lies, become angry. And now anything goes.
A political realignment is coming, no matter how this election turns out, but that won't happen for a while. In the meantime, we wait, stunned, and in a few weeks we'll all become quite gamy. That's probably why Americans dream of taking a long, hot shower, to scrub our brains out with soap.
The presidential campaign is now centered below the American belt, where
It is all about using
And this is necessary for Clinton, because it distracts media attention away from hacked and WikiLeaked emails that would otherwise damage her campaign.
Sex sells. And Trump denies the allegations, but he's spent decades boasting about his prowess with the babes and the chicks, and now he's paying for it.
Women have come forward to tell their stories, some almost 40 years old, unsubstantiated and loudly denied by Trump, yes, but perfect for television and Clinton. The political left goes crazy over all this and the media runs with it and everyone is breathlessly angry.
Unfortunately, they weren't so breathless and angry when their liberal lion, the late Sen.
Establishment news organizations largely forgave Kennedy his sexual aggressions, even though he drove off a bridge, quite possibly while drunk, and swam away to leave secretary Mary Jo Kopechne to drown.
But Kennedy was a liberal. And Trump is not. So he is not excused.
Now Hillary herself pretends, in some precious manipulative fantasy expressed to
"He was really trying to dominate and then literally stalk me around the stage," Clinton said. "And I would just feel this presence behind me, and I thought, 'Whoa, this is really weird.' ... I was just trying to stay focused, trying to keep my composure."
Whoa, Mrs. Clinton. Please keep your composure. Please.
She knows what buttons to push, and she's using emotion and sexual allegations to run out the clock on this campaign.
So the hacked Clinton camp emails from WikiLeaks are ignored. Purposely. Partisans on the left now discredit the lot, saying they're the work of the Russians, although when Julian Assange of WikiLeaks leaked other
Those emails offer important revelations about Clinton's dreams of open borders in her speech to Brazilian bankers, possible collusion between the
One of the most frightening, contemptible of all is the Democrats' plan to build and nourish front groups to undermine the
This should be front and center in the campaign. Catholics and evangelicals and Trump tend to focus on some of the more bigoted statements of the Clintonistas in the emails. But who is surprised by anti-Christian bigotry by the left?
It is the establishment of Catholic front groups by big-government Democratic strategists to work surreptitiously against the church that is truly horrific.
According to the emails,
"We created Catholics in
Podesta was correct about one thing. We're at the bottom. To have a hope of winning, Hillary had to take Donald there, and now he's rolling in it.
And the rest of us? We need that shower.
