Trump's Convention Was Almost as Catastrophic as He Is

Donald Trump is all in with authoritarianism. And freedom-loving Republicans are good with that?

Washington Post's July 22nd Op-Eds. Says a mouthful, eh?

The verdict is in across the political spectrum, and Donald Trump has frightened a number of people, including those who had once believed the Republican Party would somehow remain sane. No such luck. The tweet of the week:

Daily Kos's Abreviated Pundit Round-up gives us another look at the impending cataclysm that a Trump presidency might bring: Sample from Bloomberg View:
In short: It was the most disturbing, demagogic and deluded acceptance speech by any major party nominee in the modern political era. It’s no wonder so many Republicans -- including Senator Ted Cruz of Texas and Ohio Governor John Kasich -- are refusing to endorse Trump.  When the idea of “voting your conscience” becomes a source of division within a party, something is terribly wrong.
Talking Points Memo gives us a ton of tweets from "new media guru" Clay Shirky. Sample tweet:

Check out all of Shirky's advice at TPM. Food for thought. As a matter of fact, we all need, post-Trump's speech, a lot of thought. Then, vote early and often. (For you know who.)
