The Moral Calculus of the Left
2020 Election, Joe Biden, Katha Pollitt
Katha Pollitt, at The Nation, says:
I would vote for Joe Biden if he boiled babies and ate them. He wasnâ€™t my candidate, but taking back the White House is that important. Four more years of Trump will replace what remains of our democracy with unchecked rule by kleptocrats, fascists, religious fanatics, gun nuts, and know-nothings. The environment? Education? Public health? The rights of voters, workers, immigrants, people of color, and yes, women? Forget them. And not just for the next four years: A Trump victory will lock down the courts for decades. I cannot believe that a rational person can grasp the disaster that is Donald Trump and withhold their support from Biden because of Tara Reade.
