What about those I know to be both good, kind, solid, wonderful, loving people and supporters of Donald Trump... or those who I imagine are supporting Donald Trump but know enough not to mention it to me? I get that they hate Hillary; I can't figure out how they could support Trump.
I don't know why I care. They are not annoying me on social media. They are not wearing buttons or hats proclaiming that they'll Make America Great Again (which I like marginally more than America First, with its not-so-very-hidden Nazi connotations). I could ignore the whole thing... unless it comes up in conversation.
I don't think I could keep still.
I didn't have an answer until I heard P.J. O'Rourke's comment on NPR. O'Rourke is a Conservative satirist, a great writer, a very funny man. He gave me the perfect response:
Yes, I'm endorsing Hillary, the second worst thing that could happen to this country, but she's way behind in second place. ... I mean she's wrong about absolutely everything,, but she's wrong within normal parameters.And so, still glowing, reflecting the joy on her face last night, I'll endorse her, too. Feel free to share my hashtags.
