The Democratic Party establishment will ultimately bear the blame for choosing such an uninspiring and tired candidate. I know current polls project her to win over Trump. I will expect that to change once she's indicted. It will be their fault entirely for lining up behind such a flawed and morally compromised candidate.

Once he secures the nomination, Trump has some leeway to move left. Trump's nomination, after all, represents the rejection of Republican Party establishment orthodoxy. The Republicans have painted themselves into a corner with their litmus tests and RINO hunts. Trump can reject that in ways that neither of the other candidates can. Trump has consistently stood for the renegotiation of Clinton-era trade deals. He's talked about getting money out of politics. He's even made some statements that suggest that he sees income inequality as a problem. Trump is all the hope you have left.

I hope we are in the middle of a political party replacement cycle, like when we lost the Federalists, and later, the Whigs. The established parties are going to offer us a choice between a Bourbon Street titty bar barker and Dolores Umbridge. Given that choice, I'm voting for the titty bars.

So, you would rather vote for a clown who has gone bankrupt several times and cost thousands of people their jobs, who has no respect for women, or for the environment, or for anything but making money and a name for himself.

That says a great deal more about you than him.

But what message are you trying to send, by siding with a racist bigot who has no interest in the wellbeing of the country?

I have not seen Hillary throw people under the bus; I have seen a great deal of invective against her that she would not face if she were male. I am including yours in that category.

Calling her a harridan does. Would you use the same word of Trump or Cruz?
