Delusional xenophobia

Posted by on Dec 11, 2015 in News | No Comments

I used to think Trump’s candidacy exposed our electoral process for what it’s become. Now I think it exposes Americans for who we’ve become. Delusional xenophobia has never been stronger in America. This 00:30 second clip says it all.

Who’s taller?

Today’s ad is a parody, but isn’t all that different from the real thing.

No hope

hope

Today’s political ad is only 7 years old, and yet feels like a relic from a long time ago. Barack Obama’s intelligence, integrity and remarkable personal narrative filled many of us with a previously unimaginable degree of hope for the nation. I believe he’s been an excellent president, but the transformative governance I was looking for never actually came. I doubt I’ll ever put that kind of faith in a candidate again.

Today, I’m submitting two separate ads (the reason immediately obvious). I didn’t think it was possible, but I now like Ted Cruz even less than I did yesterday.
