1. You don't sound happy. Surely tens of millions with the

decency, ethics, and responsibility to vote for him deserve him? Including you, of course.

2. Also Harper Lee and Helen Keller, not to mention the fabulous Tallulah Bankhead

A lunatic, a commie, a Black (probably, based on that Kenyan name), a Gay, and a drunk.
