This election has really been the gift that keeps on giving for me. First there was Trump, who honest to God has delighted me more than any candidate I've ever seen in my life. But just as entertaining has been Hillary Clinton. Go Hillary go, I say - may she stumble across the nomination finish line, and may she do it with one hand still holding the dagger she's sunk into Sanders' back.
Now, I dislike Hillary. I think she's rotten to the core, corrupt, and fake. She's a hawk and a globalist, she panders to the left and (if only by necessity) sneers at the social right. It'd be one thing if only I thought that. But, God bless 'em, the left realizes it too. Which is why I'm eager to see them saddled with her.
I look forward to see the people who (justifiably) screamed about the Iraq war finding themselves voting for a woman who voted for it. People who screech anti-war diatribes having to go all-in for a hawk. People who wanted to Occupy Wall Street, supporting their obvious puppet candidate. I want to see them grit their teeth and sacrifice all of their principles - and I want them to know that's exactly what they're doing while they do it.
I have no grand tactical idea in mind to justify my attitude here, no eye on some positive cultural reaction that can come of it, though there may be one. I merely think it will be funny, and God knows it will be.
The only thing that can make it better is if they swallow their principles, debase themselves for an entire election cycle, and then proceed to lose anyway.
C'mon, God. I know you have a sense of humor - give me a laugh this time!
