Local Republican windbag Scott Frostman has handicapped the 2020 presidential election for us. To him, it’s obvious that Donald Trump will win in a landslide (April 11, Baraboo News Republic). Apparently, there’s no need for you Republicans to vote. You’ve got this. Yeah, just stay at home and “grab some popcorn.”

He does have a point. It’s very possible Trump will win the 2020 election, even without help this time from mother Russia. After all, the underbelly of our nation have proven themselves extremely tenacious. Hate is a powerful aphrodisiac, isn’t it?

And there’s so much about Democrats for them to hate. Take socialism, for example. I don’t know when “for the good of all” suddenly became “socialism,” but if it fits on a bumper sticker, it’s political game.

Of course, you have to pick the correct brand of socialism. Spending the public dime on endless wars and corporate welfare must be a better socialism than, say, the crazy democratic idea of Medicare for all or clean energy. Better yet, we’ll build a great big wall and that’ll fix everything.

Personally, I wouldn’t bet the farm on anyone just yet, regardless how hapless the Democrats or Trump seem at this point.
