IT SOUNDED GOOD. OH, WELL

Lexington Herald-Leader - - Opinion -

So, you elected the most cor­rupt and least com­pe­tent pres­i­dent in the his­tory of the United States. You thought a black­smith might do well as a sur­geon. It sounded good at the time.

You thought we needed a busi­ness­man to run our gov­ern­ment. Ev­ery­one knows busi­ness and gov­ern­ment are ex­actly alike. And he had filed for bank­ruptcy only four times. All those law­suits by his work­ers seek­ing to be paid could hap­pen to any­body.

And who cares about moral­ity? Kids learn that stuff on the play­ground nowa­days, any­way. Shucks, you wish you could find some pretty lit­tle thing to cheat on your wife with.

And you be­lieved him when he told you that the min­ing jobs would be com­ing back in droves. You re­ally thought he could re­vive the horse and buggy. He said he could.

And that woman run­ning against him, she had those emails. Yeah, you knew she was the most qual­i­fied can­di­date to ever run for pres­i­dent, but man, those emails were be­ing talked about on Fox News all the time. There had to be some­thing wrong there. You didn't know, but it's what they said.

Oh well, too bad. – Jeff Howard Hy­den
