I was brought up with the idea that if you can't say anything nice you should say nothing at all. Admittedly, I don't always achieve that, especially during election season, but I certainly make the effort. With that in mind I'd like to take a moment to praise the loudest of the talking heads who ally themselves with the political entity that once deserved to call itself the Grand Old Party.
On the one hand, they expound about all the things they and/or the candidate(s) they support will do to make America "great again". On the other, without missing a step, they dismiss the incumbent President as someone who doesn't believe in the greatness of America. It takes a lot of mental pliability and/or mendacity to express those conflicting ideas with the level of conviction they muster. For that, if nothing else, they clearly deserve our admiration.
Regarding the "nothing else", what can I say? Last I checked, for all its flaws, America is still pretty great. If the standard bearers of the Republican party don't share that view, perhaps they should look inside themselves for the source of the problem rather than throwing rhetorical stones at the current President.
