The Republican Party has created the most oafish presidential nominee ever as surely as Dr. Frankenstein created his monster.
Start with dead ideas and keep digging them up, no matter how rotten: tax breaks for the rich, benefit cuts for the poor; unlimited campaign funding for corporations, voting restrictions for people. Cobble together with beliefs, not facts.
Stoke the anger of voters by blaming the powerless. Deny reality. Refuse to leave the isolated echo-chamber of angry old white men. Expel those who sound warnings.
Zap the campaign with high-voltage fearmongering and watch this give life to an unnatural creation who appalls and frightens. It’s alive!
Voters naïve enough to go along with this are, like Little Maria, putting themselves in peril. The rest of us hope to kill the monster at the ballot box.
Failing that, we’ll see angry villagers storming the White House, and every other Trump property, with clubs and torches.
