Election Redux




It's hard to avoid the repeated references to George Wallace in coverage of Donald Trump....

"Let us hope good people of America will see this despicable race-baiting tactic for what it is — another shameless attempt by this president to drive a wedge, to once again invoke fear of the unknown to get people to vote Republican. It is a trick that has shown a history of success, popularized perhaps most memorably by the likes of fire-breathing, segregationist Gov. George C. Wallace of Alabama, whose own racist language and demagoguery on the stump is mirrored all too well by Trump."
