I must admit I'm not quite sure how this zombie horror show is going to end.
But I'm pretty sure that the final episode of this nightmare season is going to be one of the scariest nights of our lives.
Because forget the new season of The Walking Dead, this is terrifying.
Not because I don't believe Hillary Clinton will beat Donald Trump.
But because I fear that a close result could lead to catastrophe.
With the monstrous demagogue inflaming his rabid supporters into a feverish frenzy by claiming that the election had been rigged. For how else could he lose?
And some of his extremely dumb, but heavily armed, and definitely dangerous supporters, trying to start a revolution, and drive the first female president out of the White House.
“People are going to march on the capitols,” said Mr. Halbrook, who works at a call center. “They’re going to do whatever needs to be done to get her out of office, because she does not belong there.”
“If push comes to shove,” he added, and Mrs. Clinton “has to go by any means necessary, it will be done.”
Which could lead to an explosion of right-wing terrorist violence, and couldn't be more disturbing, or more ironic.
Trump and his alt-right goons have demonized Hillary Clinton to such a degree that many of his supporters are now shaking in their boots and soiling themselves, at the thought that she could win.
“I’d go home and cry for four years,” said Ken Herrmann, 69, of Punta Gorda, Fla.
Kathy Maney, 61, a hairstylist from Fletcher, N.C., used the language of love lost. “I won’t feel hatred or mad or anything like that, but my heart will be broken,” she said.
Unless of course they cancel the election...
For that dangerous demagogue just can't stop putting dangerous ideas into the heads of his
And of course if the race is really tightening, we'll have to start worrying that Trump could actually win. You know pull off a Brexit.
And you know how that ended...
God dammit. Without Vine how am I meant to sum up Brexit in 6 seconds. https://t.co/DFGOOIemax— Neil Slorance (@neilslorance) October 27, 2016
Except that a Trump victory and the law of unintended consequences could bring down America.
And the good news?
The more the race appears to be tightening, the more Democrats will be motivated to vote.
For the complacent are also a threat.
One of the biggest challenges facing the Democratic ticket is complacency: if progressive and center-left voters assume Clinton has the race wrapped up, they may stay home or support an uncompetitive third-party candidate, assuming the Democratic nominee is going to win anyway.
As the race tightens a bit, those voters should realize that a Clinton victory is not a foregone conclusion, and while Trump is an underdog, it’s plausible to imagine a scenario in which he continues to close the gap in the race’s final days.
In other words, the more race “tightens,” the more it reminds the American electorate that this thing isn’t over, and the possibility of a Trump presidency remains real.
And this latest ad is aimed them.
And its message couldn't be clearer.
Go vote. End this nightmare.
Crush Trump's Zombie Revolution.
And send the orange manic to the place where he rightfully belongs...
