Clinton vs. Trump

9 September 2016

It’s blame Hillary for everything. If it rains, it’s Hillary’s doing. You catch a cold, it’s all Hillary’s fault. Ad hominem arguments usually work in political activities, and they are working splendidly in this campaign.

The only — only — chance Hillary Clinton has of beating Donald Trump is to set loose the dogs.  Mock his orange face (the Great Pumpkin) and his rug. Harp endlessly on his bankruptcies and business difficulties.  Find people whom he’s hurt and get them out in the spotlight. Drag the Trump U lawsuits down the road for everyone to see. Get the women(s) he violated to go on the stump. Dig up every atom of dirt there is and make each a cause célèbre.  Start up a few websites to spread every rumor you can find.  Trump has a notoriously thin skin and rattles easily so catch him out in his lies and hang a vicious sobriquet on him, like “Disingenuous Don”.

Electing Donald Trump will be like drinking syrup of ipecac: It’s nice and sweet going down, but a bit later you’ll be sorry as hell as you puke up everything in your guts. Problem is, once he’s elected, there’s no throwing him up. Trump will be in our guts for four years.
