Presidential choice between ogre & troll

Voters will have to pick one or the other: The Republican, non-conservative businessman who may be without an ideology. The self-proclaimed billionaire who seems to not be that good at business. Or there is the Democratic insider. A professional politician who is corporatist rather than liberal, an ethically challenged middle-manager reaching above her level of competence to be the leader of the free world.

Victor Hanson refers to that matchup as a “Hobson’s choice”, the choice of taking what is available or nothing at all.  The Atlantic assumed that scenario under the headline, “The Worst of All Worlds” and quoted voters who said things like, “I’ll vote for one or the other than go outside and throw up.”

According to Gallup, a majority of voters have negative views of both Clinton and Trump. Neither candidate is considered honest. Politifact finds Clinton more honest than Trump in statements about the economy or her opponents’ voting records (the relatively small sample of statements that they’ve tested); her statements are true or mostly true a staggering 50 per cent of the time. Staggering because lying only half the time is now the standard of an honest politician.

However, when it comes to matters that could get her indicted, Clinton lies, and then lies some more. Her rule is never to admit anything, never to disclose anything. She learned during Watergate that Richard Nixon should have lied and destroyed the evidence. It is the rule of plausible deniability. Full Story
