Blog Credo

The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary.

Sadly, This Is True

The media and the GOP will seek to elevate Trump and tear down Clinton.  For all the reasons stated in the article.

The scary thing is not that it will work; I don't think it will.  But it will succeed in damaging Clinton even further.  For all the nastiness of the 2008 general election, McCain never "went there."  Neither did Romney, for the most part.  Trump will dive deep into the sewer and create norms that no one in their right mind will want created.

You can't unfuck the chicken.
