Like a poisoned pantomime pony painted, preened and presented in violent vaudevillian garb, American politics has hit an all-time low. Quite why FBI Director, James Comey waited until this time to re-open the case of Hillary's E-mails is hard to fathom. Hard to fathom if you measure depth in fathoms but not so hard to fathom if you measure politics in the depths of depravity it can sink to. James Comey seems almost to be playing for the reds.
As I have often said, I distrust Hillary Clinton but dislike Donald Trump more. Of the two it's a no brainer who I'd rather see as President. Yet still, the way in which American politics is played, as though it were part circus, part combatitive spectator sport with spears and sneers, spearmint bubble gum and sly digs thrown in, reduces the whole process to playtime in Junior High. This has been made all the worse by the fact Barak Obama made his derogatory comments about Hillary only to say the reverse months later. Ironically, it would seem that Hillary now needs the support and popularity of Michelle Obama to grease her wheels and with all this nonsense going on she is going to need all the help she can get.
Yes, we know Ms Clinton is not the epitome of discretion; that she is less than diligent to whom she shares confidential information; that she savours making a buck as much as she favours the underprivileged but then again, what can you expect of a born again neoliberal?Yet still she is the better candidate for Lord alone knows what Trump would do had he the power. Now it looks like they are neck and neck. How the Democrats, when not cursing the freedom of the press, the first amendment, Julian Assange and Wikileaks, must be wishing they had backed Bernie Sanders..
