But the other day E.J. did bring a smile to my face with his WaPo op-ed "Trump’s sour Virginia cocktail" with the mirthful tag line "The candidate is not someone Virginians would have over for drinks." Has anyone, on either side of the political aisle, illuminated the essential problem of the Trump candidacy more succinctly and profoundly than this carpetbagging New England jackass who no self respecting Virginian would have darken their door for a drink or otherwise? No. Not that this Massachusetts troll knows anything about Virginia cocktails because the state that invented the mint julep will drink some pretty unique concoctions depending on the time and place. And even if Virginians did dane to invite Donald J. Trump over for drinks there's a good chance he wouldn't accept the invitation because DJT DOSEN'T DRINK. He's an all business teetotaler who doesn't give a damn about slurping down whiskey and cramming his pie-hole full of shrimp cocktail, endive chips and brie cheese.

It is disgraceful how these journalists and politicians will talk about every personal foible that Trump has - there are many - and sight them as disqualifying shortcomings while never getting around to speaking truthfully about the REAL reason they abhor the prospect of a Trump presidency. The very real (and legitimate) fear that Trump will tear down the system that they've devised to supply themselves with power, treasure and influence well beyond their intrinsic value and worthiness. The herd of GOP lemmings (politicians, pundits and plutocrats) made from the same stuff as Russ Potts who are leaping into the Hitlery camp is a testament to this fear - and a testament to nothing but fear.
