    In a dramatic change of heart, a one time critic of Trump is now saying he is the lesser of two evils.

    So on the Hitler/satan scale of 1 to 10, how does everyone rank Obama and Hillary?

    Hillary: 0

    Trump: Maybe about 0.5

    So what you are saying is that Hillary is a big zero?

    Only 0.5 for Trump?

    Have you been drinking again sh?

    He gets the half-point for his blatant xenophobia. But do I think he's capable of setting in motion a program of ethnic cleansing or do I think it's likely to support legislation that would marginalize and target a specific subset of Americans? I doubt it.

    Maybe I'd give him a 5 on the Le Pen scale.

    So I guess the Dalai Lama also gets a half point or so as well for his xenophobia. Could you imagine Trump as the Dalai Lama? LOL.

    So no points taken away for Hillary's handling of Benghazi or giving away state secrets and lying about all of it?

    If the scale were about poor leadership or qualifications to be President, perhaps. If the scale were, say, zero to Nicholas II or zero to Louis XVI*, I might give Hill a few points.

    On a scale of zero to Hitler, no. Hillary gets nary a point.

    * Edit: I was going to say zero to Jimmy Carter, but I didn't want a flame war.

    So you don't buy the fact that Hillary let those men die in Benghazi purposefully and then lied about it?

    Understood, so it is your position that it was all due to incompetence.

    Come on people, if we don't raise hysteria by convincing people one of these two train wrecks is Hitler, who will vote?
