GOP elector abandons Trump because of alleged Darth Vader connection

Christopher Suprun, a Texan Republican elector for the upcoming electoral college gathering, published an op-ed in the Times where he said that he will be refusing to vote for Donald Trump, as he promised Texans he would do, for a whole litany of reasons, one of which is because Trump allegedly has an adviser who likes the fictional character Darth Vader.  Here are some of the reasons he gives:

Mr. Trump goes out of his way to attack the cast of "Saturday Night Live" for bias. 

They are biased.  What is wrong with that?

During the campaign more than 50 Republican former national security officials and foreign policy experts co-signed a letter opposing him

And many signed a different letter supporting him. So what?

Gen. Michael T. Flynn, Mr. Trump's pick for national security adviser, has his own checkered past about rules. He installed a secret internet connection in his Pentagon office despite rules to the contrary

What is a "secret" internet connection?  Did he have a private server in his home, like Hillary?

He tweets day and night, but waited two days to offer sympathy to the Ohio State community after an attack there.

If he had waited only a day, would that have qualified him to be president?  How quickly must a president-elect tweet in response to a terrorist attack to make a nominee constitutionally qualified to be president in Mr. Suprun's eyes?

He does not encourage civil discourse, but chooses to stoke fear and create outrage.

Unlike Hillary, who stoked it 24/7 to whip up support among women, Muslims, and illegal aliens?

And his nuttiest point:

He has surrounded himself with advisers such as Stephen K. Bannon, who claims to be a Leninist and lauds villains and their thirst for power, including Darth Vader. "Rogue One," the latest "Star Wars" installment, arrives later this month. I am not taking my children to see it to celebrate evil, but to show them that light can overcome it."

Mr. Suprun is not only a nut, but a hypocritical nut.  You can bet that if he were an elector for Hillary Clinton, he would not have the slightest problem with her.

And by the way, when it comes to protecting our borders and fighting Islamic terrorism, we could use a little more Darth Vader in a Star Destroyer and a little less Princess Leia in a metal bikini, don't you think?
