The surrender of Mark Levin to the ideal of “the lesser of two evils” argument and thus his decision to support Donald Trump for President is quite logical when one takes a deep, introspective look at the consequences of a Hillary Clinton Presidency. This talking point has been the mainstay of so-called conservative talk radio hosts for decades now as Rush, Sean Hannity, and others used it when arguing for Robert Dole, a candidate equally as horrid in quality as Trump, again with George W. Bush twice, then of course, the Progressive batshit crazy senile old fart from Arizona, John McCain.
By 2012, after the Tea Party revolution was in full but fading glory, the official GOP push was to stop that crazy guy from Texas Ron Paul because God forbid, we couldn’t have a candidate running for President that attracted young voters, had principles regarding the Constitution, and wouldn’t keep America involved in the phony war on terror globally. Thus the conservative talk radio machine and media fell in line and supported another horrible candidate for President who gave us four more years of Hurricane Obama.
Here we go again.
Rush is in the bag because he has a membership to protect (allegedly) at the Trump National Golf Club at Doral. Sean Hannity wants to fly around on Air Force 1 and play golf at Camp David while ogling Melania. Fox News became a Trump Super-PAC during the primaries all but giving the Cheetos Jesus the keys to the studios and all of the camera operators to work for him at his discretion.
Alas, Mark Levin held out but did promise to reveal his decision tonight and true to his word, he did, by saying he would vote for Donald Trump even though he will not cover for him if he makes a mistake while in office. You know what he means of course, the policy errors a President Trump might make, like starting a nuclear war with China, starting a trade war and economic depression, or putting the golden Trump letters down the side of a newly renovated Washington Monument. However he did take the tried and true conservative talk show approach and insinuate that yes, he was voting for the lesser of two evils.
Thus leaving some of us out in the hinterlands wondering what to do, and alas, it is time for me to follow their leads and select the
Lesser of Two Evils
I have decided to stop drinking low calorie, low carb beers and only drink high calorie, full flavor beers. Why? I’m over 50 and it doesn’t matter any longer because it is the lesser of two evils.
I have decided to stop eating fruit and fiber rich foods for my breakfast, and instead, crank up something to support big cereal to keep Americans employed because illegal aliens probably picked my fruit and keeping American jobs in America is the lesser of two evils.
In fact, since I’m over the age of 50 and been a non-smoker all of my life, I have decided to take up cigarette smoking instead of marijuana smoking because it is legal and the lesser of two evils.
Hell, if it is good enough for Fred Flintstone, it’s good enough for me and must be the lesser of two evils.
America is at a major crossroads where the U.S. Constitution is at risk, and our choices are a modern day version of Herbert Hoover or Eleanor Roosevelt on Leninist Steroids. Either way America is screwed.
Pass me a light please.
