This whole spectacle just makes me feel a little less proud to be American; from the media, to the candidates, to their supporters. Our Democracy reduced to a WWE headliner.

Thanks for assuring the public (who pay your salary) that you're doing the work of the people. But you get an F+ for optics... if that matters.

Re: crowding

You need a canoe or kayak, Stephen! Although I've noticed the Loons (the water fowl type) are getting pretty bold in some places showing they're more comfortable with human types...of loons.

Neither candidate draws a lot of respect, we're resigned to that.
But one candidate seems to have not only attracted all the hate groups, but has been adopted by a major political party. I believe anyone supporting that candidate, or that party, is complicit in what those groups stand for. And I'm far from alone in that opinion.
Anything to keep the white man on top, right guys?

jjhehir's question reeks of the panic this country is now seeing as White supremacist leaning Americans frantically try to retain their social, political and economic (and quasi-Christian) advantage. The 800 lb. gorilla in the GOP is that 9/10's of registered GOP voters are White, non-Hispanic. That's a fact. But they'll scream to high heaven that they're not racist.
Please... your emperor wears no clothes, as they say.
The White dominance of America is dying and we're slowly becoming the melting pot we were meant to be. Sorry White supremacists, this is inevitable.

I'm betting in 10 years we'll all have our own MAC address and phone numbers will go the way of the rotary phone.
