GOP self-destructs

It’s strangely refreshing to hear Donald Trump’s latest racist rant against Muslims. Fresh off his recent campaigns to insult Mexicans, women, war veterans, the handicapped and African Americans, he seems hellbent on alienating large groups of people. He’s also the long-time Republican front runner for president in 2016, with a comfortable lead in almost every poll.

As a progressive Democrat and Obama supporter, I can say most Democrats are seriously enjoying watching the Republican Party self-destruct. While it hurts in the short term to hear all this hate, at least we can enjoy another four to eight years of a Democrat in the White House.
