Both Sides, Lesson Two Million

I hate having to keep doing this, but not anywhere near as much as I hate having it happen.  In a perfect sample of the kind of press coverage we are going to be getting the next few months, this excerpt from CNN, courtesy of Crooks and Liars:


"So let me pose this question to you, and that's the dissatisfaction many Americans have, with both candidates, when it comes to the level of hatred and rhetoric and prejudice that we're seeing in the United States. The Quinnipiac poll came out, shows 61 percent of the electorate right now, feels, that this election as a whole, on both sides, has increased the hate and prejudice in this country.'"

Both sides.  Both sides!!!  this election as a whole, on both sides, has increased the hate and prejudice in this country.  They're both doing it.

Helpfully illustrated with the following graphic:
67% Trump, 16% Hillary.  That's how "both sides" increase hate and prejudice.  And that's not even considering that more than 16% of Republicans believe that Obama is the Antichrist, and they should be disqualified from voting based on being certifiably insane.

Well, there it is, the only way that the Republican party will not be crushed out of existence, as they so richly deserve, this election season.  As I have said so many times, the Democrats could beat the Republicans without even trying; what they cannot destroy is the Republicans and the mainstream press working together to wreck our country.
