|From Album 5|
So, as I’m sure you know, there was a rally yesterday, and all the usual wingnuts showed. Hell, my original idea was some variation on The Three Stooges, but between Sarah Palin — and the crowd itself — singling out only three seemed too, um, conservative. So instead I focused on the stars of the show, at least from a quick scan of the coverage. Wow: I think what really stuck with me, and damn, I can’t find a link, so please just trust me on this, was a NPR report featuring a rally participant…who, without the slightest irony I could detect, described Trump as, and I’m not making this up, a “miracle.”
On a certain level, this really is amazing to watch — people willingly being duped by a professional huckster doing little more than reflecting their own prejudices back at them.
It’s the mother of all medicine and/or freak shows…but…the freaks are the ones coming out to gawk.
