9/11/2001

After that day, they just went crazy.

25. maybe the crazies became the majority around that time?

They always had more than their share of the crazies, but there were a few sane conservatives and a few moderates that got drowned out after that, or else joined the crazies in going off the deep end. McCain seemed a sane conservative back in 2000, but then went off the deep end afterwards in attempting to appeal to the loonies. (Topped off by choosing Palin for VP)

Some I know have made a huge point of announcing they have changed their affiliation to Independent. I haven't a clue how they will ultimately vote, but they sure as hell do not want to be identified with republicans any more.

27. Hell yeah! I hope he gets the nomination

A windbag real estate developer whose father started their family fortune through government housing contracts vs a socialist is something that America really needs to see to show the difference between the parties.

I hope he goes bankrupt (again!) on this campaign.

36. Either that, or jeb winds up with the nomination and Trump's caused so much damage with

Latino voters that jeb will never be able to stanch the bleeding, even if he chooses his Latina wife as his running mate.

But it's far more important that Trump trashes the brand.

BECAUSE he's running (shit - I can't believe I'm even saying that. It's like - a clown gets into the Oval Office - . Oh wait.), the very fact, exquisite as it is, that he's running with the professional political pack rather than just sitting on the sidelines with the cameras and glitz and bombastic, carnival-barker showmanship! The very fact! Is just freakin' GOBSMACKING. FLABBERGASTING. CHIN-ON-THE-FLOOR. Barnum, Bailey, & Bullshit! Okay, I've seen a few presidential campaigns in my 62 years. This - DAYUM - sorry for the shouting but sometimes it makes me explode! I'm just marveling at it all with mouth agape. Just agape.

I hope he SHITS the brand.

40. So noted! Anybody speak up to refute that, within that tribe?

That kind of silence when there should very urgently be some sort of comment condemning the reprehensible statements and/or behavior. Somebody in that clown car actually does need to speak up.

The last time that really blew a trombone into my ear for me on this order was during one of the 2012 GOP debates. The format included having questions posed to the candidates by "regular-Joe" types. Live or Skyped or whatever. One of 'em was a soldier IN IRAQ. Live from center stage outside the Green Zone. In Ground Zero of a hot war. And he identified himself not only by his name and rank but also said he was gay. And he asked about changing policy as it affected gays. And guess what happened? As soon as he began to articulate the question, some people in the audience booed. They BOOED. You could hear it clearly. It was a disgusting, disgraceful, embarrassing, shameful, reprehensible moment. In public live on television in prime time. And then somebody onstage fumbled an answer that was entirely forgettable because A) you knew it was gonna be a bullshit answer and B) you were still damn near transfixed by having witnessed a bunch of selfish shits back home BOOING a soldier ON the battlefield, IN harm's way, IN an active, shooting war, LIVE from the field. How fucking DARE they.

But that wasn't the worst of it. "Shame On Them, The Sequel" coming right up.

The WORST and most galling and most repulsive thing about it was that not one of the candidates up there on that stage stopped and said - "hey, with all due respect to everyone here, I just have to say 'WAIT A MINUTE!' Since when do we boo our troops in the field who are out there with their butts on the line, in the line of fire, no matter WHAT subject they want to bring up??? I'm sorry, but SOMEBODY up here has to say something about that! You DO NOT BOO our troops who are out there risking their lives for our way of life back here at home. You do NOT blaspheme that level of sacrifice. Under ANY circumstances. We're always saying we support our troops. So why don't we prove it?"

NOBODY said that - or even anything remotely close to that. As a matter of fact, nobody said ANYTHING. Nobody stepped up. Nobody said Word-One about the detestable and utterly unconscionable booing of one of our troops. If our side did that, they'd be putting it on in the morning, trimming it with blinking neon lights and honking horns, and wearing it around all day, every day, for months. But not in this case. The debate moved on. To other matters of great consequence.

And to this very day, I have yet to hear, find, or read any concession of fault or apology, no admission of guilt, no expression of remorse, no appeal for forgiveness. Nobody brings it up. No former candidates. No members of that audience - either that night in "post-game show" coverage or since. No columnists or TV panelists or anybody. Or if they have, it's been so minimal or consistently low-profile for so long that I haven't seen anything. If one were to ask any of them at this late date, I'd expect they'd mostly claim they don't remember.

I'm wondering if this qualifies, from Catholic school anyway, as a sin of omission. You didn't speak up when you should have. NOBODY spoke up then - or since. Frankly, that fact alone tells me all I need to know about that side of the aisle. All I need to know. And none of it good.

26. "Who's doing the raping?", really?!!!

YOU're doing the raping, Donald Trump you middle-class-raping, tone-deaf billionaire mother fucker. I don't begrudge you your billions - I wish I was there myself. But, your temperament, insensitivity, racism, homophobia, general ickiness - and what you're doing with those billions - make you one of the world's great assholes. I want to vomit every time I see or hear you.

Frankly, I hope you win the nomination. That'll embarrass the crap out of the Republican party and will make a Democratic victory a cake walk.

34. Don Lemon didn't do a very good job of countering Trump

Obviously Trump was referring to the men who accompany women across the border. Don Lemon sounded dumb in pretending not to understand. Instead, Don Lemon should have armed himself with statistics and facts. I think that's too much to ask of a TV "journalist" these days, however. The article in Fusion states that 80% of women crossing Mexico to get to the U.S. are dealing with criminal gangs, human traffickers, coyotes and other no-goods. The article doesn't state that it's the typical Mexican male immigrant who rapes all these women but it's the traffickers, who often ask for sex in exchange for getting across. These criminals are not representative of male migrants who enter the U.S. The ones doing most of the raping and abuse stay on the other side of the border, as parasites on the poor people who want to cross. If Don Lemon had not embarrassed himself by being totally unprepared to interview the Trump creep it might have been good TV for a change
