One can easily insert one or the other’s names of our hapless presidential contenders to the paraphrase of William Butler Yeats’ poem. Rough beasts indeed.
But this is an election that I will sit out, voting for neither one of these two would-be “leaders of the free world”. No matter who ‘wins’ this contest, at least half the citizens of North America are the losers. Not much of an election mandate is it?
I must admit that were I to cast my vote it would probably be for Donald J. Trump ... just to see all the professional politicians freak out in fear of what The Donald would do in the way of draining the swamp that is Washington, DC.
