The awfulness is the point, apparently, when it comes to Republican candidates in various races across the land. They may be liars, they may be violent spouses, they may be religious zealots. They may be predatory creeps, or dumber than a bag of hammers. But they’re also, somehow, perfect antidotes to what many on the right perceive as demon socialism or tolerance run amok.
What amazes me is that many people will waste their vote in this battle of attrition, and the country they claim to love so much will continue to suffer because of their willingness to perpetuate incompetence and ignorance and fear.
