Had a thought getting dressed this morning... [View all]

Kasich announced that he might be interested in running as a third party candidate in 2020 and it occurred to me that it was the first move of the Establishment Republicans to regain their strength and come surging back. They always play the long con, you can never overestimate their fiendishness. Given the climate of the country, the Republicans have been flushed as a majority-winner party nationally and the water is circling the drain. By getting rid of Trump for a second term and conceding the WH to a Democrat, they can begin to rebuild their favorite position: the opposition party of resentment and hate of the "Liberal" establishment which is defined as anyone to the left of Attila the Hun. I believe that they realize that they erred in allowing Trump to manhandle their candidates during the debates and probably believe that he was unwittingly set up to believe he could run and win by none other than the Clintons, who preyed on his narcissism.

Now I'm certain that Hillary never expected to lose to this fool, but therein is a different brand of narcissism which all political candidates and office-holders possess. However, Trump, while destroying the morale of the nation and breaking it into open Civil War in many senses, has served to undermine the right wing by his Marx Brothers approach to running the Executive Branch. This unintended consequence has demonstrated to our rather dull electorate that these people are really bad for the average working man and woman, AND that you can't be an ignorant, psychopathic, malignantly narcissistic fool and be successful as a President.

We have bottomed out and I do believe that with the exception of the deceased Charles Manson, America couldn't have found a worse celebrity to become President. (I understand there will be many nominees for this position, but it's a figure of speech, so stay calm.) We are on the precipice of a 24/7 story which will cause many to lose sleep as we slog through the impending nightmare. Stock up on coffee and No-Doz. It's gonna be a ride.
