I have refrained from commenting on the 2016 Presidential Election so far because I find it deeply depressing, more so than previous elections have been. Obviously, I have opinions about it, even strong opinions, but all this disheartening rubbish is so obvious, there is really nothing for me to say that someone else hasn’t already said, better. Besides, pretty much everything that comes out of Donald Trump’s mouth and the maws of his odious supporters speaks for itself. Here is what I find fascinating and bewildering, though. I just can’t, for the life of me, understand why in the name of all that is holy the Republican Party threw in its lot with Trump.
