…blockin’ out the scenery, breakin’ my mind…
(We’ll see who gets the long-haired freaky people‘s vote.)
Al Novstrup pops out of his hole (look at that design again) to declare himself “reasonable and respectful.” Funny that, from the party that nominated Donald Trump for President.
The Arizona Republic, which hadn’t endorsed a Democratic Presidential candidate for 120 years until this week, would agree that “reason” and “respect” aren’t selling points for this year’s GOP:
[Hillary Clinton] does not casually say things that embolden our adversaries and frighten our allies. Her approach to governance is mature, confident and rational.
That cannot be said of her opponent.
Clinton retains her composure under pressure. She’s tough. She doesn’t back down.
Trump responds to criticism with the petulance of verbal spit wads.
…Contrast Clinton’s tenacity and professionalism with Trump, who began his campaign with gross generalities about Mexico and Mexicans as criminals and rapists. These were careless slaps at a valued trading partner and Arizona’s neighbor. They were thoughtless insults about people whose labor and energy enrich our country.
…Trump mocked a reporter’s physical handicap. Picked a fight with a Gold Star family.Insulted POWs. Suggested a Latino judge can’t be fair because of his heritage. Proposed banning Muslim immigration.
Each of those comments show a stunning lack of human decency, empathy and respect. Taken together they reveal a candidate who doesn’t grasp our national ideals [editorial board, “Endorsement: Hillary Clinton Is the Only Choice to Move America Ahead,” Arizona Republic, 2016.09.27].
Al Novstrup has demonstrated some reason in joining me in endorsing Initiated Measure 21. If he means the words he pastes on his billboard, he’ll join me in repudiating the unreasonability and disrespectfulness of his party’s Presidential nominee and endorse the reasonable, respectful Hillary Clinton for President.
