Sometimes, this blog is a challenge.
It’s always been that way to some extent. Some of the things one must type sometimes. It’s like there’s a curse of Captain Obvious, and I was feeling like that quite a lot even before the reign of Impeached Preznit Carnage Creepy Ghoully Fantastic.
Of course the most recent rout was Trump’s weaseling about his willingness to cede to a loss, and I’ve been sitting with this for some time, waiting for right way to say it. It finally came. Let’s review exactly what he said, including the question he was asked:
“Will you commit here today for a peaceful transferral of power after the election?”
“We’re going to have to see what happens. You know that I’ve been complaining very strongly about the ballots, and the ballots are a disaster.”
Impeached Preznit Carnage was asked, specifically, if he would commit to a peaceful transfer of power.
The correct answer is “yes.”
That Trump cannot simply answer “yes” to this question is troublesome. If you do not also find discomfort with this, then you’re part of the problem.
Vote early, people. And, as they shouted yesterday from the steps of the Supreme Court, vote him out.
