        The personal qualities of the messenger have nothing to do with the content or validity of the message - despite lots of people who would like to believe otherwise.

        This is supposed to be the USA, and its citizens are supposed to be free to support whichever candidates they choose, for whatever reasons they choose, with no worse consequences than making a braying ass of themselves and/or being called a braying ass.

        And it's
        None of your damn business!
