GLANZEL | The Case for John Kasich

The past couple of weeks have witnessed perhaps the most disgusting display of pettiness, irrationality and sheer embarrassment in recent American political history. The public has been witness to violent campaign rallies, vulgar sexual allusions, KKK endorsements and vicious name-calling. In the process, the civility of American politics has evaporated. While the nation can point its finger at Donald Trump for this chaos, the fact of the matter is that no one was willing to stand up to the business mogul for months. The lack of courage on the part of the media, the American public and both political parties to end Trump’s rampage is truly disheartening.
