A Nightmare On Lake Erie

At what point will the Republicans wake up and realize, “Holy shit, we’ve just nominated Freddie Krueger“?

Seriously, though, and in spite of the fact that the New York Times gives Hillary Clinton 3-to-1 odds of winning in November (on the other hand, Nate Silver notes that Clinton’s lead now is the same as John Kerry’s was at this time in 2004), I cannot remember a time when a presidential candidate actually had me frightened for the future not just of this country or my personal life and safety, but that of the planet.

It truly frightens me that 45% of the country can look at Donald Trump and then place their lives, fortunes, and whatever else they value in the trust of someone who clearly is unqualified to lead a one-car parade, let alone a country and by default the most powerful nation on Earth.  And if it really happens, I seriously doubt that the America we will see in four years will look or behave as it does now, and not in a good way.

2 barks and woofs on “A Nightmare On Lake Erie

  1. Donald Trump terrifies me. He is the stuff of which nightmares are made. Americans in general have never experienced any of the kind of repression, duplicity and criminal behaviour by their government. We think we are above that and it only happens in countries that are uncivilized and uneducated. Well, people, it seems we are on the road there..

  2. I agree with both of you. Trump is very scary. I cannot believe anyone would seriously vote for him except an old white guy. As a woman I am so insulted at the words that come out of his mouth about women. As a human I am insulted by the way he speaks of black people, gay people, Hispanic people and just about everyone else on the planet. Hilary is not an ideal choice but I will rush to the polls in November to vote for her. The thought of him winning terrifies me.
