COMMENT POSTED TO AN ARTICLE BY SABRINA SIDDIQUI IN THE GUARDIAN
I’ve heard him on the radio, and he's a rather insipid-sounding man, but of course Madame Defarge would not likely pick a forceful ego with which to share a room.
I’ve just checked out a few facts, and he does prove a genuinely odd choice.
First, as mentioned below, he is a booster of TTP. Not the kind of thing a lot of the Democrats’ base is fond of and fairly anathema to organized labor.
Second, he is associated with crime initiatives which put a lot of black people in jail over some years. Given her pretentions, and they are pretentions, of sympathy with blacks, this is strange. It’s rather in keeping with a comment she was recorded on video making years ago about “black super-predators.”
Third, and this amazes me, he is against abortion.
Of course, she is trying to appeal to some Republicans, but that is a desperate hope. Hillary is, without a doubt, the most disliked Democratic candidate in memory, especially by Republicans.
