And now the cane-throwingest, fist-shakingest codger gets up from his rocking chair, puts down the moonshine and squirrelin' rifle and stands on the soap-box.

I almost hope by all the sinners in heaven and all the saints in hell that Trump wins! And if you ask why, it's because schadenfreude is one of my greatest joys in life. When everything collapses in on itself and the world starts burning, I'll be standing on the tallest rock with the biggest stick yelling 'I voted for C'Thulhu, so you can't pin this on me'. Also because sometimes the poop-pile has to get big enough and smelly enough before the majority decide to do something serious about it. Some folks willl know that of which I speak.

Also, grr. Argh. *shakes fist harder*

You use the German term "schadenfreude" and it is an appropriate term for your position. Pleasure from another person's misfortune. Better that someone else is the victim, eh? So the vicious circle just continues and what comes around keeps going around. We won't solve any of our problems like that except our own petty emotional issues, but only temporarily. Now, it is a German word and it makes me think of all those crazed Germans wanting some form of this in the 1930s. They chose Hitler. Then eventually for them, what they wrought on Europe, Asia and Africa found it's way back to them in 1944-45. Oops. Maybe breaking the cycle is a better idea, but I must warn you it is a liberal idea and one this guy named Jesus had 2000 years ago, minus the church's dogma of course. I am not about religion though, just workable solutions. Stop hating people. Look at yourselves first and see if you really are so perfect as to be judge.

Personally, I hope Biden runs. He's honest to a fault. He hasn't used his position to enrich himself ever. How novel. Then it would be great to see Elizabeth Warren as his running mate. Bernie is nice, but he's a bit too angry. As for Trump's motives, who knows? But one thing is for sure, he is the nemesis of Jeb Bush, from his initial statements announcing his candidacy and right up to the current date. If nothing else, he may be ending the Bush dynasty, which is a positive development.

Here us old coots are having fun bashing the state of things, and some guy has to throw the cog of rational thought into the works, breaking the RMB. Bah! Fie!

Urania-Plutonia

So, one week before the wedding and I go and twist my ankle while helping a friend move. I have it elevated while the Lady goes to pick up an Ace bandage and Icy-Hot, but it's entirely possible that my sword fighting plans will be curtailed. We'll see what happens the rest of the week.

Goddammit, Trez - I expect to be entertained out there seeing you get your ass beat by your lovely lady! Not just handing it to her while you gimp around! Look at it this way. At least it isn't a shot to the ass.

:P

Seriously, good luck and hope you get feeling better soon. Wubs to you both!

You should really say Moddammit instead. :)

Look at the way Palin soured McCain's run, made everyone scared that she would be just an old man's heartbeat away from the Oval Office. If Trump secures the Republican nomination (unlikely in the extreme - the Republican party establishment doesn't like Trump any more than anyone else who isn't Trump) he'll be handing the presidency to the Democrats. If he runs as an independent candidate (which he's almost flat-out said he will if he doesn't get the Republican nomination) he'll siphon enough votes from the Republican lunatic fringe to hand the presidency to the Democrats (similar to how Nader drew enough Green votes out of the Democratic Party in 2000 to hand the 2000 election to Bush). Basically, Trump's involvement in the Republican primaries is a godsend to the Democrats. He has no chance to get anywhere near the Presidency himself.

But if he doesn't win, he'll make sure there will be hell toupee!

{But seriously if you're right that's somewhat comforting}
