Good Debateday Widdershins!
Well, the clamorous Yam finally did it.
Yes, he did.
Insulting veterans didn’t do it.
Disrespecting a Gold Star Family didn’t do it.
Being an equal opportunity bigot and racist didn’t do it.
Being an imbecilic, bird-brained, cretinous moronic pretender as to policy, the military, and foreign affairs didn’t do it.
Being someone who incited violence against a citizen didn’t do it.
Being someone with a homoerotic fascination with Vladimir Putin didn’t do it.
Being someone who is accused of pedophile rape didn’t do it.
Being someone who stiffed workers, tradesmen, subcontractors, and vendors didn’t do it.
Six bankruptcies didn’t do it.
Losing $916 Million Dollars didn’t do it.
Being a lewd, profane, sexist, misogynistic swine didn’t do it.
What grabbed the pusillanimous Republicans by their private parts enough to finally move them? Knowing, without a doubt, the Cheeto-factory reject was doomed to failure one month from now with a certain, historic loss to our gal Hillary. At long last, that knowledge was what gave certain Republicans pause to reconsider their support of a man who brags of white male privilege so ubiquitous and mundane as to allow carte blanche sexual assault of women.
There should no longer be even a scintilla of doubt that the Republican Party is now populated by a near majority of craven, sexist, racist, poltroons unworthy of consideration in the public square. The one person sent out to speak on Trump’s behalf? A man who informed one of his three wives on television their marriage was over.
One personal note to my Widdershin friends: On many progressive sites the brush painting all males, including those of us of the “librul” bent, is quite broad. The accusation is that all men, even those of us who are feminists, are guilty of such abhorrent talk about women.
Without fear of contradiction – I have been on sports teams in high school, fraternities, graduate schools, male dominated law firms, and more bars than there are stars in the sky and I have NEVER heard anyone, friend or foe, speak of women like Trump did in that video recording. NEVER.
I wanted to say thank you for not painting all of us with such a broad brush. As with many things, Widdershins are exceptional.
With that, let’s enjoy Hillary’s victory tonight!
