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.

I've Wondered This, Too

Will Trump pull out of the debates?

I imagine he will get creamed by Clinton, because he's a fucking imbecile and can't remember the difference between Tom Kean and Tim Kaine.  He won't study the facts or the issues, and Hillary already mastered them.

Trump thrived in the primaries by playing the field off against each other.  He will therefore try and get Gary Johnson and Jill Stein into the debates.  Johnson might qualify at the 15% threshold, but Stein doesn't stand a chance.  So Trump will keep moving the benchmarks.

Hillary Clinton isn't Marco Rubio or Jeb Bush, she is more than capable of handling Trump.  I suspect on some level he knows it, though self awareness isn't his strong suit.
