The echoes from the national conventions just past continue to reverberate. Today, Tom Tomorrow (Dan Perkins) provides graphic representations of some of those echoes. However, the echo that reverberates loudest was amplified by the psychopath masquerading as the Dumbo presidential nominee Donald T. (for "The") Chump when he attacked the parents of a US soldier killed by an IED in Iraq for having the temerity to criticize The Chump. For Chump, the insults were more painful because the father, mother, and their sons were Pakistani immigrants who were Muslims. Forget waiting for the Dumbo leadership to speak out against Chump's madness. Today, only the Geezer (Dumbo nominee of 2008) spoke out against the Chump who is lower than pond-scum (Chump-scum). If this is a (fair & balanced) wish that Chump be placed in a padded room and given a regular, constant dosage of Thorazine to the end of his miserable days, so be it. (In fact, a hypodermic injection of Thorazine should be administered every time that Chump opens his scummy mouth to speak.)
