I wish Molly Ivins were around. In response to the 1992 Republican convention speech given by Pat Buchanan, she quipped “it probably sounded better in the original German.” She would have had a great, pithy response to last night’s speech from Donald Trump. All I’ve got is “Mussolini’s delivery was better.” Trump reminds me of Il Duce
The entire week at the RNC was a week of fear, unreasoning terror and more fear topped off by a surreal, incoherent rant delivered by a wannabe strongman intent on stoking our fears.
It was a horror show. It was also an honest representation of how Republicans would govern – chaos, disorganization, and a fundamental lack of competence.
