Twice now in inside of two weeks both Trump and leading lights of the GOP have mufted a softball bitch. Indeed, they were not only softballs, they were slowballs. This has to say something about the political compantentcy of the GOP and their Presedential nominee.
The first mufted softball, is of course the infamaus question about accepting the results of the election this November. When I first heard it, while I was watching the debate, I couldn’t help but think “What a ‘No Brainer'”. I fully expected Trump tho answer in is most famous way of snark “What kind of question is that? Of course I’ll accept the results. I’m going to win, it will be ‘Huge’. So of course I’ll accept it.” Instead he swung and hit the catcher in the head. I fully except this whole horable scene to be in most PoliSci classes on how to ‘Blow it Big Time’.
An now, today, the GOP and Trump get another gift of a slowball underhand pitch in the great FBI Letter. Such an opportunity for both Trump and his GOP surrogates to take the high ground and look responsible and Presidential. An the go and just hit the ball slowly down the line strait to the Firstabaseman. There were so many great ways to play this to their advantage I don’t have time or space to list them all. All of them would have been good for Trump and the GOP, no mater how the facts turn out. Even with the total exoneration of Clinton the Trump campaign could have come out winner. Instead they look just like what they are. People so full of hate, anger, and bruised ego that they just can’t help themselves, they will attack. It reminds me of how the Frinch army thought 102 years ago “No mater the tactical situation, attack.” As for me I perfur the what Napoleon said 201 years ago “Never interrupt your enemy when he is making a mistake. It’s not polite.”
