The campaign of every Republican candidate consists of:
Personal attacks on each other wrapped in fear-inducing double-talk.
Cover with thinly-veiled racism, sprinkled with flag-waving, homophobia, misogyny, xenophobia, and self-righteousness served on a bed of titanic hypocrisy and blatant lies.
Stir in sword-rattling, a comical ignorance of other places in the world, and mindless nationalism that insults democratic values and portends a continuation of contrived wars.
Never, under any circumstances, include non-rhetorical compassion for anyone or anything – including the planet on which we live.
They are quite a group.
