The banality and burlesque of US presidential elections

There is probably no more dreaded period of time in US politics than the two years of campaigning for president. The banality of Democrats can hardly keep pace with the burlesque of the Republican road show which I like to refer to as a traveling clown car. The capitalists have a crisis of leadership in this country & it’s on full sorry-assed display in campaigns.

We’re getting just a whiff of all that with this nonsense about Clinton’s emails. As the socialist candidate for president, I expected to lose by a landslide. But as the whole sorry spectacle unfolds things are looking up for me & I may have to prepare my acceptance speech.
