These Are Not Normal People

None of the three leading Republican candidates are normal people. More dangerous than their beliefs and promises is for America to think of them as sane, responsible leaders, offering this country and the world, America’s best. In judgement and vision, all three are appalling. In experience, they have yet to exhibit a sense of diplomacy toward sticky international issues and seem to have no understanding of how coalitions are formed and global services are delivered, or of hot spots of terrorism besides the Middle East and ISIS. In moral judgement, they have not demonstrated empathy toward Americans hurt by the system–nor do they seem to know how to use the system to help. I would put none of the three in charge of FEMA.

Rubio is weakest. He has to be scripted. He sells his ambition. Cruz has a line in the sand. He kicks sharp-edged silica in voters faces when they disagree. His love of God embraces wrath. Trump is a clown prince; a reassembled Falstaff, blending apprehension and cunning, a swimming amoeba whose successful decadence is a national dysentery.

Do not lose sight of the goal that will speak to America’s global leadership and trust, its strength and patient, steady guidance: defeat any of the three in the fall. Pound them into the ground; strike a blow for democracy and freedom. Then move on to break the grip of the 1% and dismantle the system of racism woven into the country’s customs and institutions, beginning with Flint.None of the three leading Republican candidates are normal people.
