14. He's their mirror image, after all

and it's people who feel their time is passing or past who glom onto him. He's the epitome of an American society of half a lifetime ago- in its uneducated and miseducated/'Christian' and colonial exploitation-centered desires and designs. Right wingers don't believe in Constitutions or laws and never have, only in using them against other people. They're always about fearing people who are better than themselves and hating people worse than themselves.

Right now we're seeing them in a more humbled form- after a lot of attempts and argument, they now admit that in most things of governance they're halfassed or utterly incompetent. But they still have their basic trait of inane viciousness left undefeated, and so they're riding their last point of touting that as virtue- that they're better at "national security".

The People has registered this change of plea and told Republicans to prove that last point. It's certainly keeping score, though. As I see it, in February or March the serious bleeding in the polls will begin again and cut into committed Republicans in a permanent way.
