Tribalism

I know that things have become politically grim south of the border when I can't even derive any schadenfreude from it.

If I could find a silver lining in the ongoing dumpster fire in US politics, it's that it makes me realize how normal and rational the political arena is (so far) on our side of the border.

A child predator is currently poised to win an election in one of the southern states because folks there have sunk so far from political sanity. They have demonzed their political opponents to the point where they will side with a child molester just because he is one of theirs.

It raises the frightening question about just how far they are willing to shift their moral compass out of blind tribalism.

I wonder if US politics have hit rock bottom, or if they are only just beginning the slide.
