C’mon Ds, get your act together! How hard can it be to come up with a superior alternative to the hypocritical opportunistic sycophants running the show now? All it would take, really, would be a campaign team willing to play on the fears legit and not and baser urges of the electorate better than the Rs have. Candidates slightly less hypocritical opportunistic and sycophantic would be helpful, but not necessary.

Canon to right of them,
Canon to left of them,
Canon in front of them
Volleyed and thundered;
Stormed at with shot and shell…

Nationalists and xenophobes on one side, elitist intellectuals on the other, but plutocrats coaching both teams. The lefties in the field are no match for the right swinging zealots at bat, as the rules are different for each team. And the fearful crowd on both sides of the field holds its breath as its their careers on the line with each pitch not the players.

Was there a man dismayed?
Not though the soldier knew
Someone had blundered.
Theirs not to make reply,
Theirs not to reason why…

I read it somewhere that you don’t really have troubles if they go away when the WiFi is down. Simply taking a technology free walk or tuning into some non streamed music choose ambient chill, Country pop. R and B or late Beethoven it doesn’t matter and the symptoms of trumprussiasyriaisis will fade away. So I’m told.

When can their glory fade?
O the wild charge they made!
All the world wondered.

Apologies to L. T., for the 21st century rewrite of his ironically prescient 1854 poem. Respelling mine and intended. “Сделаем Америку снова великой!”
