    [Mensch] is a mirror for the left’s Hitchcockian fantasies and an avatar of our political dysfunction, a symbol of how far off the deep end one has to travel to reach a land beyond believability

As one of Hubski's resident Trump-haters, I've waded through some beautifully-raked muck. But as time goes on, I think that I'm finally getting an idea of what's plausible, and what's not, in the land of Trumpmania. That said, I'm wrong all the time! Not just about this Trump crap, either. And I'm cool with that, as long as you guys can forgive me for it.

What I know beyond a shadow of a doubt? This president is fucking stupid, the Russian government/intelligence knew it, and that creates some opportunities. Yes, the f-word was necessary, sorry.

Obama was no saint, but I can't imagine how secure he feels about his legacy in contrast to the new "competition".

I get the feeling that Obama would've lost to Trump in 2012 if Trump would follow the same strategy: put down the "establishment" and the other candidate by making sickly and twisted claims that none of his becoming-brainwashed supporters would (want to) dispute.

I think another four years of "stirring the pot" was crucial to Trump and co.'s success. The right-wing media managed to really get that accomplished quite well. In fact, that's pretty much all that the GOP has done, unless we're counting "fuck over their constituents so badly that the over-correction may destroy us all".

Edit: Liberals are but the lesser of two evils at this moment in history, and there as many (effective) options. One of our founding fathers warned us against it, I forget who. Not very respectful of me. Nor is not even going to Google right now. And certainly not then loosely guessing Hamilton and going back to coding.
