Waiting with bated breath
by David Atkins
Such a suspenseful night tonight. Who will win the battle for the hearts and minds of the most conservative voters in the most conservative state in the nation? Is it the animal-abusing vulture capitalist who pays a 15% tax rate with Cayman Islands bank accounts? More likely, is it the surging ethically challenged, openly racist serial adulturer with a hatred of child labor laws? The goldbug neo-confederate? Maybe the guy who wants to eliminate birth control?
It's like 31 flavors of toxic sludge. But don't hate the sludge: it is what it is. What concerns me most are the customers who can't get enough of it.
