Will US presidential campaigns ever be the same again after Drumpf talked about the size of his penis? Can the Republican Party posture any dignity when it’s clearly a cesspool of machismo, racism, stupidity, & backwardness? Can the ruling elite represented by both parties allow the charade of electoral politics to be exposed in such a degrading way & reduced to a circus side show? Are they willing to risk a president with fascist politics rather than employing the usual strategy of patiently eroding & dismantling our rights?
They have a crisis of leadership. But then so do we. Progressive forces in this country don’t have enough cohesion & unity to even stand steadfast & massively against war. That’s the crisis of leadership that matters. That’s the political problem that needs to be solved because the President of the US does not represent working people; he/she represents Wall Street & war.
