How did U.S. politics reach this bizarre point, where so many are ready to vote for Donald Trump -- a situation encapsulated in a Daily News shot of Sarah Palin endorsing him, under the headline, "I'm With Stupid."

It's election day and, at last, hope that what has to happen if this country is to recapture its integrity is actually about to happen: that Stephen Harper and his scurrilous despotism are about to get the heave.
