    They'll be flinging their monkey turds at the new Democratic nominee. If it's Hillary, they'll just shift their rhetoric from racist to sexist, and everything else will stay the same. When your engagement with contemporary events is perfunctory, opportunistic, shallow, and amnesiac, it's easy to make superficial changes. Today's isolationist deficit hawk is tomorrow's spendthrift saber-rattler. Today's border-patrolling racist is tomorrow's colorblind free-trader. The right-wing is capable of any metamorphosis in the course of its fundamental mission: the consolidation of privilege by means of acrimonious division. Everything else is a circumstantial detail.

      Perfect.
