ON THE OCCASION OF TAKE THE WIN
I hate the phrase take the win.
But when pundits, and radio and TV journalists talk about a politician who may succeed a maniacal tyrant, they cannot surely be serious when they nitpick and find little petty criticisms.
When a democracy has become a banana republic run by a thug, anything even slightly blemished should have my support if it could dislodge and expel the neo-dictator.
When the ruler is a criminal, and is ruining his own country more than any threat to it or attack on it in history, the only job is to be rid of him.
So take the….well make the new candidates, win!
