Them and US
• Kevin Myers bemoaned in his column (Irish Independent, October 23), as others have elsewhere, the bias in favour of the Democrats that he perceives in the Irish media and public.
I believe Mr Myers to be mistaken. What he observes is a general revulsion among rational people everywhere when candidates who are not that bright, are woefully ignorant about the world and are full of dangerous ideas, come close to power in any dominant country. This is amplified 10 times if those individuals happen to be religious fundamentalists.
The Republican primary season 2012 was terrifying to sane people everywhere. Where do they find these people?
