It's earlier than Christmas gear in August. 2016 conventions and elections are far away. Yet, news is oozing memes. It's the Republican clown car. Hillary awaits coronation. Yadda Yadda.
Feel free to call and rant on your own (718-664-6966, then punch 1 to show me you're on. No anonymous calls though.)
In lieu of callers, I'll present my own semi-reasoned analysis. Why did we have a scrum of 17 announced GOP candidates? Why did the Dems wait so long to step up to challenge Hillary Clinton, even though she laid a big egg running against an unknown state senator named Obama?
I propose there are different brains at work, and that the candidate strategy for eh two parties reflects how they think now and how they'd govern. It's a wonder to behold, awful in all senses of the term.
