Biting the Ears Off the Race

The likely presidential nominee for the Republican party has proudly accepted the endorsement of a convicted rapist, the disgraced boxer Mike Tyson, gloating that “You know, all the tough guys endorse me.” This outrage du jour from the Donald J. Trump campaign won’t give any pause to his so-loyal-he-could-shoot-someone supporters, but we wonder how it will play with a majority-female general electorate that last time around was persuaded the far more gentlemanly Republican nominee was waging a “War on women” because he spoke of the “binders full of women” he had perused in a good faith effort to make sure the state of Massachusetts was being fair in its hiring practices.
This time around the likely Republican nominee has two cheated-on and thoroughly screwed-over ex-wives, a long and undeniable history of making outrageously sexist comments, ran strip clubs and beauty pageants, and clearly relishes the resulting sexist pig public image that already has him scoring disastrous disapproval ratings among women in every public opinion poll, so the Democrats’ work should be all the easier this time around. We’d like to think that a candidate’s praise of a convicted rapist and disgraced boxer who took two bites out of an opponent’s ears would even harm his chances of securing the Republican nomination, but this time around our party in in such a mood that at least a winning plurality will mouth the slogan that “at least he fights.”
Trump’s Nixon-era dirty trickster surrogate Roger Stone took time out from threatening any anti-Trump delegates with a visit to their convention hotel rooms and “tweeting” out racist bile to send a “tweet” suggesting that any criticism of Trump’s longstanding friendship with the convicted black of rapist of a black woman is somehow racist, and even Trump’s many proudly racist supporters will surely agree, but it seems unlikely to win over many black voters of either sex in the general election. Trump is still on the record calling for the execution of some black teens who were wrongfully accused of raping a white woman in Central Park some years ago, and the guy who boasts that he never settles a suit did settle a suit with the Justice Department over his racist rental policies some years ago, and although the Democrats always charge the Republic with racism their work will be all the easier this time around.
Trump’s so loyal-he-could-shoot-someone supporters seem to like the idea of the kind of tough guy that won’t take no for an answer and is willing to bite an opponent’s ear off, but they should remember that Tyson lost that fight to the nicer-but-tougher Evander Holyfield, and that during his stay in prison for a rape that he quite clearly did commit no matter how famous he was he got a tattoo of Mao Tse Tung on arm as well as that weird monstrosity that mars his already ugly face, and signed on the Louis Farrakhan and all sorts of other abominable ideas, and that his endorsement is nothing to be proud of.

  1. Oh, if only the electorate were composed of nice, clean-cut, ladies and gentlemen who attend church twice on Sunday and wash their mouths out with soap when an evil word escapes their lips.

    Unfortunately there are a few outliers like Cora Segal, otherwise known as #TrigglyPuff who is in the vanguard of the College crowd and who may think that a black rapist ear-biter ex-con is preferable to a conservative.

    And then Trump may be trying to lock up the vote of the 200,000 ex-cons newly enfranchised by Hillary-fan-and-Virginia-governor Terry McAuliffe who swears it has nothing to do with the election.

    It’s a strange election cycle where the press, the Democrats – but I repeat myself – and the prissier sort of Republican, can’t get the Republican nominee to denounce some random sinner on a daily basis even if they have not said a word in support of said nominee. Because that’s how elections are won. Just ask Presidents McCain and Romney.

    The Democrats have written the obituary of the Republican party and the Republican party has been busy filling in the blanks by conceding the Northeast, the upper-Midwest, California and wishing and hoping that absolutely everything falls right for them in every “purple” state to overcome the Democrat’s “locked-in” 246 electoral votes.

    And they hope to do that how? Why by denouncing anyone who is not purer than the wind-driven snow. Yeah! That’s the ticket, because now #TrigglyPuff, those 200,000 Virginia ex-cons and the feminist followers of Hillary! will decide that the Republican is so nice that they just have to vote for him.

    And that will also get half of the electorate that never comes out to vote because if there’s one thing that energizes them it’s being gosh-darn NICE. That’s the way to win!?
