Stephen Hayes @ The Weekly Standard: Our National Dumpster Fire
If nothing changes, this will be the choice presented to Americans in November. An ignorant, unstable conspiracy theorist with no core principles versus an inveterate liar dedicated to ever-expanding government. Clinton and Trump are the least popular major-party candidates in the history of polling. Hillary Clinton is viewed “very unfavorably” by 37 percent of Americans; Trump is viewed “very unfavorably” by a staggering 53 percent.
Senator Ben Sasse, a newly elected Republican from Nebraska, is one of only a few elected conservatives to demonstrate any political courage. In an open letter to Americans “who think both leading presidential candidates are dishonest and have little chance of leading America forward,” Sasse argued against defeatism and complacency.
“There are dumpster fires in my town more popular than these two ‘leaders.’ With Clinton and Trump, the fix is in. Heads, they win; tails, you lose. Why are we confined to these two terrible options? This is America. If both choices stink, we reject them and go bigger. That’s what we do. Remember: our Founders didn’t want entrenched political parties. So why should we accept this terrible choice?”

10 mins into his rally Trump has gone after Ryan, Graham, Jeb & Marco – not Hillary. He literally cannot help himself. No impulse control.
