Election day dawns and the scandal count is rising on both sides of the party lines even as I write. I would say it’s getting ugly, but this election has never been pretty. The vitriol and sheer vindictiveness, slanted journalism, name calling, downright lies. I might just be glad if the media gets their candidate, in hope that that will quell some of the backbiting and mud slinging. Doubtful. A group tends to take on the spirit of it’s leader. It’s no different for nations.
