Since I currently only barely have the attention span to compose a coherent tweet, let alone a proper blog post…
- To get the usual topic of conversation on this blog out of the way: I remain both #NeverTrump and #NeverHillary and would still gladly vote for just about any 3rd party candidate on Nov. 8. Gary Johnson seems the most viable, and I write this knowing how incredible it is to use the word “viable” about a Libertarian candidate. I’ll never agree on the whole tax-cuts-for-the-rich thing, but he seems good enough on most other issues, and besides, this thing is far beyond each candidate’s position white papers. This is about basic moral character and fitness for office, a test that both of the main nominees flunk spectacularly. Sure, Hillary maybe gets a failing 55% on that test versus Trump’s 12%, but still.
- If you put a gun to my head, yes, I’ll admit Hillary is the lesser of two evils. Recent comparisons I’ve seen online: She’s malaria to Trump’s Ebola; she’s Stalin to Trump’s Hitler. Let me add: She’s the Roose Bolton to Trump’s Ramsay Bolton. I still can’t force myself to support her.
On that note: Spoilers for Game of Thrones and the most recent Captain America movie below the fold.
