Clinton’s the really scary one
For smug Clintonistas, the quintessential image of the current presidential campaign was a political cartoon showing Donald Trump as King Kong atop the Trump Tower swatting futilely at biplanes representing his many enemies among the elite ruling class: Hillary Clinton Democrats, establishment Republicans, globalist oligarchs, Chamber of Commerce and K Street careerists, etc.
Here is the savage alpha ape pretending to rule where he doesn’t belong and being brought low by his much more civilized betters. Kong is the perfect metaphor for Mr. Trump.
For me, the better image for this campaign is that photo of Maryland’s own dynastic mediocrity, Kathleen Kennedy Townsend, hugging George H. W. Bush at his home in Kennebunkport and then tweeting that the elder Bush intended to vote for Hillary Clinton.
Toss in a Mitt Romney here and an Evan Bayh there and you have the whole cabal of America’s great political families whose collective leadership has lead to the spiraling decline of the United States, the all-war-all-the-time international policies, the asymmetric distribution of very tepid economic growth and the debt-burdening and off-shoring of our middle class security. A Bushwhispering to a Kennedythat he’s voting for a Clinton? Whoa, you could knock me over with a feather.
Perhaps more despicable than the dynasts themselves are their collaborators among the riff-raff. Woolly-headed college professors suggesting to the deplorable and mouth-breathing losers who apparently constitute the anti-Hillary electorate that they should grow-up and get-over on the whole notion of the Clinton restoration miss the point.
The American republic will survive a Trump presidency and may even prosper if Mr. Trump is half the disrupter to the corrupt political status quo that his supporters hope. That Ms. Clinton better understands the levers of the current awful and frankly un-American federal government is the most compelling reason not to vote for her. If she and her ilk are given four more years, then more power and wealth will be concentrated among the self-absorbed fewandthegreat American experiment will collapse.
Trust me, anti-Hillary voters are mature, informed and righteously angry. Mr. Trump doesn’t scare them nearly as much as Ms. Clinton does.
