But all that said, and tho I’m no democrat, I was impressed this time by the electorate who did prevail despite the squandering of billions by plutocrats on negative ads. Neither platform was acceptable but one outspent the other 3:1 & it didn’t work. So the cynical idea that the electorate can be bought is disproved. That gave me some small glimmer of admiration for the populace.
But the squanderingof $3bil. cash on bs & lies, when they could have bailed out the horn of Africa for that sum, shows that America is the beautiful but the USA sucks.
