Commentary by Michael Reagan
An already depressing campaign is getting worse every day. No matter who wins in November, we’re going to end up with a president that half the nation hates and the other half didn’t really want to win. We have Hillary the Crooked still trying to lie her way out of her email crimes like a cheap lawyer. We have Trump the Unqualified still talking in gibberish about grabbing Iraq’s oil, claiming he knows more about ISIS than the generals and trading air-kisses with Vladimir Putin. We even had Gary Johnson the Pot Head flying his Libertarian Party’s campaign plane into a cliff with his already famous “What is Aleppo?” response. So who’s left to vote for, Jill Stein, the mad doctor of the Green Party? It’s sad to say, but Trump is still our best choice among the worst candidates. For both The Donald and The Hillary, this election is no longer about gaining voters for their candidacy. It’s all about suppressing the other one’s voters. Whoever can get the other one’s supporters to stay home on Election Day wins. If Trump is going to win in the end, it might also be because of what Citizens United and Judicial Watch do. The two conservative groups, which have used lawsuits and Freedom of Information requests to get the state department to release Clinton’s emails, have caused Hillary much more trouble. There will be more emails coming because of Citizens United and Judicial Watch, plus whatever October surprises WikiLeaks and Julian Assange have coming. The email dumps might very well suppress the voting for Hillary, which, let’s face it, is the only way Trump can win.
