The horrid day is rapidly approaching. Yes, November 8 is when Americans will choose which Tweedledee/Tweedledum fire to jump into after two terms of Barack Obama’s slow-growth frying pan.

So let’s try to enjoy some gallows humor in advance.

Hillary already has been the target of satire in one Nazi movie. This time she’s graduated to a Nazi movie featuring the head of the National Socialist Workers Party.

Speaking of Ms. Clinton, I can greatly sympathize with the disgust she felt when receiving that selfie from America’s laughingstock, Anthony Weiner.

Now let’s train our fire on one of Hillary’s long-time donors and supporters.

Here’s Doc Brown giving some very important instruction on how to save the nation from the big-government fake Republican who is running against the big-government all-too-real Democrat.

We even have some satire mocking the Libertarian nominee. Here are some excerpts from an article posted by the Onion, ostensibly written by Gov. Gary Johnson.

…there is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity here for a third-party candidate to present a transformative new vision for our nation and win the support of voters all across the country. And frankly, I am just as disappointed as you are to realize I am in no way qualified to do that. …As it turns out, though, being a high-profile presidential candidate requires you to do a lot of stuff you don’t have to do when you’re only pulling in 1 percent of the vote, like know all about foreign affairs and domestic policy. …as you can probably tell by now, I am simply not up to the task. Not even close. …I’ve had to field questions on all kinds of subjects I just don’t have any clue about. It’s actually been pretty embarrassing. …What makes it really disappointing is that I truly believe libertarianism has valuable ideas to contribute to America’s political discourse. …But boy oh boy, am I ever doing a shitty job of communicating all that.

For what it’s worth, I suspect most Americans are relieved that Gary Johnson doesn’t know about places like Aleppo. That way, he’s less likely to invade and cause more instability and anti-American radicalism in the Middle East.
