Oh, the Second Amendment People

"Hillary wants to abolish, essentially abolish the Second Amendment By the way, and if she gets to pick -- if she gets to pick her judges, nothing you can do folks."
"Although the Second Amendment people, maybe there is, I don't know. But I'll tell you what -- that will be a horrible day."

Donald Trump, Republican presidential candidate

"This is simple: What Trump is saying is dangerous. A person seeking to be the President of the United Stats should not suggest violence in any way."
Robby Mook, Clinton campaign manager

"Donald Trump Just Suggested That Someone Shoot Hillary Clinton."
"THIS IS NOT OK."
Justin Barasky, super-PAC

This is all an elaborate send-up, a nasty little fun-thing, presenting a travesty of bad politics and worse candidates jostling to become the next president of the United States; essentially the world's most powerful leader. So what does some wicked wit do? Send in the clowns. In the process running a popularity contest between a disgusting mountebank whose egocentricity is matched by his eccentricity as a monumental ignoramus, and a politician who has been there, done that, and has become the most distrusted politician in the current American political arena.

He lies constantly because it is integral to his persona as a bullying braggart whose intellectual capacity was stunted at birth which didn't stop him, in the great American tradition of becoming a celebrity through sheer audacity. Remember what Obama so famously said and reiterated during his run for the presidency? Be audacious. See what it gets you?! She lies because not to do so would be to admit she has consistently failed in the trust given her as a political insider whose avocation was amassing a fortune while her vocation was to serve the nation.

How could this pair of clowns be anything but representative of an elaborate scheme to prolong April First? The only puzzle here is why it is taking soooo long for the electorate to fully appreciate that they're being had, teased, being made fools of for believing that the Democratic and the Republican parties would field such amazingly flawed candidates. It's a contest between Trump and Clinton -- which one is more devastatingly inept and self-involved, each desperate to demonstrate they are deserving of the gold ring.

Although halos don't come with the presidential office, a deep need for cerebral functioning, a grasp of integrity, an abiding respect for those who will be represented by the office, and a resolve to do justice to the elite executive position of president and commander-in-chief lest the world exhale a gasp of incredulity threatening an oceanic tsunami of vitriol be exuded threatening to engulf the southern half of North America, excluding Mexico which has enough problems of its own.

So whoever so cleverly devised this bit of authentic theatre, roll it up, please. Enough truly is enough. You've proved your point; the electorate is sadly gullible. Politicians can be despicable. The world is an angry place. Have some pity. Boot out your extras, and please, please bring in the functioning, capable and reliable representatives of America's best for a laudable campaign to result in an acceptable election.

The world is waiting with bated/baited breath.
