UPDATE: --Go read Infidel753's analysis on the Clinton/Trump race so far and why "sad person" and the rest of the Trumpistas will have to be kept away from high-rise windows and sharp objects come November.
It appears that even the fringiest of the fright wing fringies are looking at what the natural outcome will be from backing a genuine
as their nominee for POTUS.
Here's an example of one of their laments:
"But most or a great many of us made it to polite civilized society. We respect and nuture nature and all of its inhabitants. We treat each other with respect until evidence presents itself that this was an unwise choice. We allow others freedom of choice until their actions repulse us as civilized humans so much that we must focus out[sic] attention on restraining the fucks.
And now here we are, after all of this, after all of the lives lost and sacrificed of civilized warriors and citizens willing to lay down their lives to protect this polite civilized society find ourselves about to Lose to the most ignorant, mentally diseased libtarded fucks on the face of the planet?
It can't be. It simply can't be."
Oh, but yes, sad person, it simply will be.
(Don't you love the part about "We treat each other with respect..." which then segues into calling Democrats "...the most ignorant, mentally diseased libtarded f**ks on the face of the planet?")
We shouldn't be too hard on these poor souls because it looks as though they're suffering from the Dunning-Kruger effect. Also, it is they who paved the way for the
who now represents them and their party.
I'll let PM Carpenter explain the reason for their weeping and gnashing of teeth:
Some quotes from despairing GOP lawmakers: "It is pretty gloomy these days"; "If I had to bet, I'd definitely bet that Trump loses"; "I think it will be Hillary"; "If he continues the next 90 days like the last week, then he will lose big time."
And of course Trump will continue like Trump, since his only remaining strategy is to bury yesterday's outrage with a fresh outrage (goodbye assassination threats; hello Kenyan Obama and Crooked Hillary as ISIS's co-founders). Toddler Trump is building a monument to a landslide."
And there's this from DeadState:
"According to a new McClatchy-Marist poll, Hillary Clinton holds a devastating 15-point lead over GOP nominee Donald Trump.
It’s a stark turnaround from the previous invulnerability Trump seemed to enjoy from his fan base, regardless of the many stupid things he said or the many lies he was caught in.
The demographics of the poll show a trend that could spell doom for Trump’s campaign: Men had been the bedrock of Trump support. Last month, he was up by 14 percentage points among men; he’s now down 8. Clinton remains strong with women, as she’s up 20.
Trump collapsed almost everywhere that he’d built decent support. Even among white voters, which favored Republican White House candidates in recent elections, Trump was lagging, ahead of Clinton, but only just barely, 41-39."
From the New York Times:
"When Mr. Trump fans racist rage against the president, suggests that gun owners take up arms against Mrs. Clinton, or speaks darkly of a “rigged” election, he is not trying to woo Republican skeptics, independents or undecided voters. He is appealing to the mob. Right now Mr. Trump is losing, and this very likely terrifies him. Maybe he doesn’t know how to control himself, or comprehend why he should. Or he is simply satisfying his boundless need for attention. But his behavior this week raises a more disturbing scenario. Perhaps he has given up on winning through civil means and does not care about the consequences of his campaign of incitement."
Detroit Free Press
" So those GOP officials who’ve lined up behind Trump, citing their obligation to party or to protecting the Supreme Court for conservatives or their hatred of Trump’s opponent, Hillary Clinton? The ones hoping that Trump will eventually dial it down, hire good people and govern from a place of sanity? They’re out of line. Way out of line, and delusional. And their own fitness for office is cast in serious doubt by their inability to stand on principle rather than politics. Their unwillingness to take an admittedly tough stand against their party’s presidential nominee is a sign, perhaps, that they themselves don’t belong in elected office."
