On Walls and Guns and Gay Rights: Believing Something Super Hard Doesn't Make It Less Wrong

Like we needed reminding, the ghastly proposed GOP platform confirms we really are two countries, one of them insane and 300 years behind the times. The GOP is against weed, porn, abortion, grey wolves, prairie chickens, magnetic pulse attacks, gay marriage/children/parents and bathrooms of your choice. They are for guns, walls, conversion therapy and institutional racism, which hey their candidate says is just like what he goes through. A stalwart George Saunders and the Redneck Liberal seek to make sense of the madness.

Trump is actually attracting a variety of supporters, many of whom despise him but believe that the US is so messed up that Trump will dynamite it and provide the opportunity to rebuild. Kind of like the rebuilding of Germany and Japan after WWII that gave them new infrastructure to prosper while the UK stagnated because they won the war. They believe that a Clinton win will result in a long death spiral that will be more painful than the dynamite.

Although I don't subscribe to that vision, a lot of Murkins do.

Loved the Liberal Red Neck.

Sheesh, this guys sounds Missouri. If only it were so.

Prairie chickens? What did they do to get up the Republicans' noses? Were they kicked off Noah's Ark or something?

My kids don't have time for that much "rebuilding." Two words: Supreme Court.
