leave a comment »

Dissatisfaction with Donald Trump within the rational wing of GOP and dissatisfaction with Hillary Clinton within the progressive wing of the Democratic party has stirred a few to think of a possible third party, which brings to mind an exchange in Don Marquis’s Archy and Mehitabel posts: Mehitabel the cat opines that the time is ripe for a third party, and Archy the cockroach responds, “It is more than ripe. It is rotten.”

The Lives and Times of Archy and Mehitabel is worth seeking out.
