Hillary is speaking on Maddow tonight and offering as a list of authoritarian countries that the US might turn into if Trump gets his way Hungary, Poland and Russia. I hope nobody in Poland is listening because this is unnecessarily aggravating and just plain silly.
Unlike Poles, Hungarians at least like Putin. Not that it excuses the analogy because Putin is driving his country’s nationalists nuts with his open-border policy, and Orban, as we all know, is on the nationalists’ side.
I hear echoes of “you crazy former Soviet-bloc people are all the same and all equally stalinist” in Hillary’s statement.
P.S. While I was writing this, Hillary announced that asking the FBI to investigate a drunken teenage party from 30+ years ago is “a reasonable request.” I need to stop watching before she completely disappoints me.
