People I hope are immolated by a Trump defeat, aside from Trump: #1 Rudy Guiliani

because he's as repulsive and bigoted big mouthed as Trump and as much of a liar.

#2 Mike Pence- because he's a far right wing religious creep who hitched his wagon to Trump

#3 Jeff Sessions- for rabidly pushing Trump. Alas, the outlook for his going up in flames is dim.

#4 Kelly Ayotte- because she's a gutless wonder who wants it every which way. She's endorsed Trump while trying to separate herself from him on issue after issue

#5 Ron Johnson, another Trump endorser who Feingold is going to beat by double digits, and because he's another businessman asshole tea party creation who thinks government should be run like a "business".

#6 Reince Priebus. He's been effective in pushing a far right agenda.

#7 Paul Ryan because his phony statesman act is bullshit, and he's just another far right tea party tool who the TP has turned on.

He should be ashamed of himself. But as the GOP keeps proving over and over they will do or say anything to scrape up a few votes.

I will add to that list:
Marco Rubio -- exposed as the phony shape shifter that he is. Could not even be bothered to be in attendance to cast votes in the Senate. I hope FL boots him.

Jan Brewer -- what a sanctimonious pain in the ass.

Katrina Pierson -- This kool aid drinking woman ignores all facts and tries to rewrite history. She is an incompetent yammering fool. And the thought of her possibly being one of Ted Cruz's conquests makes me want to soak my brain in bleach.

7. Josh Marshall calls them Trump's Dignity Wraiths

creatures from whom Trump has gleefully drained all dignity even though they now serve him , because Trump wants to degrade those he has conquered. Usually they are defeated opponents who have suffered a political wound at his hand (Chris Christie, Little Marco, Ben Carson, Scott Walker) but occasionally they are self-immolating (Pence, Ghouliani).

9. certainly, point is that there's no way to support Trump and maintain one's personal dignity

Either they wind up debasing themselves grotesquely (Ghouliani, Gingrich) or he actively seeks to sap their dignity.

Look at how he's treated Christie and Pence. He goes out of his way to humiliate them even though they're his most prominent supporters.

he corrupts all that come in contact with him, even the already corrupt

10. The Ghoul was already grotesquely self-debased. Now he's even more grotesque

Christie has never had, as far as I can see, a shred of dignity. Now he's in the minus column. What these guys have in common is that like Trump they're school boy bullies grown to men with far too much power.

As for Pence, what on earth possessed him is to accept the VP position is beyond me.

They flock to him because of what they already are.

That whole "GUILTY" nonsense he pulled at the convention. Top of my list.

To think a long, long time ago, he was one Republican I actually had a soft spot for.
