GOP ‘swift boating’ each other

To the editor:

So! Are you sick and tired of seeing all these Republican candidates swift boating each other?
For many of us, watching this spectacle unfold gives us a case of schadenfreude as we shake our heads in disbelief.
Others who are aware of the dark history of the late Republican strategist Lee Atwater and his protege, Karl Rove, see this travesty as a perfect example of just deserts.
English majors may use the Shakespearean term “hoisting with his own petard” to describe this internecine savagery.
Deep in our hearts we all know how to end this raunchy behavior: don’t vote for them — any of them.
In a perfect world, these candidates would end up with only one vote — their own.
But if you want this mess to continue, then go ahead and vote for them. Ball in your court.
