    http://www.cnn.com/2016/06/10/politics/mitt-romney-donald-trump-racism/Mitt Romney suggested Friday that Donald Trump's election could legitimize racism and misogyny, ushering in a change in the moral fabric of American society...

    ...Romney said in an interview here in a suite overlooking the Wasatch Mountains, where he is hosting his yearly ideas conference. "I don't want to see a president of the United States saying things which change the character of the generations of Americans that are following. Presidents have an impact on the nature of our nation, and trickle-down racism, trickle-down bigotry, trickle-down misogyny, all these things are extraordinarily dangerous to the heart and character of America."...

    Romney needs to get LOUDER.

    If Republicans want a party after this election they will denounce Trump nonstop til the bastard goes back to his tower.

    I rarely agree with RM, but here I completely agree that "trickle-down racism" is frightening possible if people continue to ignore Trump's sophomoric behavior. Republicans who love their country cannot, and should not, ignore Trump's schadenfreude.

    It's ironic that Romney was governor of Massachusetts and, while advocating gay rights, he still tried to prevent a gay marriage law from being passed - and tried to resurrect a law forbidding interracial marriage.

    In VF's latest issue, which has some nice Olympic portraits, by the way...

    ...there's one of those snippet pieces comparing 1968 to today wherein under the theme category of "what are we protesting" the writer lists the Vietnam War then, compared to Racism, Sexism and Lack of Diversity today.

    So then in the "How does the Nation react?" category, he lists the 1968 reaction to be "the silent majority" (which was the rise of the religious right against women's rights, that bitch Anita calling us pedophiles, etc..) vs 2016's "birth of the angry, anti-political correctness voter" (which is the bigotry of Trump & Co.) which is kind of an interesting observation that though I don't know if it will hold out to be true it certainly rings true now.

    It's weird to watch the GOP self destruct morph become more of the same, almost like watching an enemy die internally of disease when you'd have rather had it eventually see the light and come on over to party. That for all the stepping over to the right that the Republicans did towards the edge of that cliff, that even while the Democrats wrongly sidestepped right to continue square dancing with them, that wasn't enough for them. These bastard GOPers wanted more. They wanted the entire dance floor all to themselves. Well, they got it. Only from here it comes at ya at 32 feet per second squared.

    I hear they've traded in their elephunt...
