What kind of world are we living in where we may, at some point, look back with a mystifying fondness for the days when we only had to deal with the likes of Donald Trump?
Regardless of what unfolds concerning the indictment rumors, one thing many know for sure is that Ron DeSantis would be a more frightening alternative to the garden variety ineptitude of Trump. DeSantis raises the stakes considerably. A vote for him would be a vote for someone who knows how to get out of his own way, who has a slicker delivery, a longer view, maybe a bit more patience.
DeSantis has a sharper set of tools but the same smarmy, political façade. He somehow seems more dangerous and conniving. Hard to put a finger on it, other than to say he’s a more sophisticated brand of stupid.
