He could win, you know? Especially since Hillary's dead and her body double/clone is now running.

I think his chances are very good. Hillary has been self destructing since Labor Day. It's been shocking (and fascinating) to watch. In past elections and archival footage I've seen gaffes, I've seen stumbles, I've seen screams, tantrums, and fits of weeping... But I've never seen a candidate falling apart the way Hillary is.

Trying to figure out What Happened is going to be our topic of discussion for the next four years, I think.

So...this Skittles thing. Brilliant marketing on the part of a candy company or specifically designed by aliens to destroy my mind?

Man, am I in a serious news blackout or what? I have no idea what you're talking about.

I don't even know how to explain it. Trump Jr. made a retarded tweet comparing refugees to Skittles and it went mega-meme in seconds with hilarious results.

That debate was awesome! That was like watching a tennis match. Trump was trouncing Clinton, but she was playing some crazy long game and just turned everything upside down. Watching him steadily melt down at the end while she shimmied and smiled and laughed kind of made my night. He was so good at calling her Secretary Clinton while she snidely called him Donald the whole time...until she got in his head and snapped him like a twig.

Amazing to watch, really. That was expert politicking shit from her.

If he wins after that, he's what we deserve.

We have two more debates until the election.  Back to the tennis analogy -- now he knows how she plays.

Did anybody notice Trump was asked 15 exclusive questions and Hillary was asked only 2 exclusive questions?
There will come a day for every man when he will relish the prospect of eating his own shit. That day has yet to come for me.

That's been standard operating procedure for this whole campaign. It's weird. I guess Trump puts on a better show.

While Trump continues to self-destruct rather dramatically, we had the big threat of a Tuesday bombshell from Wikileaks that would torpedo Clinton.

But... Now Assange says there won't be an announcement on Tuesday. So just trying to get attention, I guess.

It's fucking madness that this is remotely a close race. We're doomed. News blackout is the only thing keeping me from ding this overtime Trump's name comes up:

The human race loves a demagogue. We always have.

Though, historically speaking, our support of demagogues has more often been because we enjoyed the show. Only occasionally do we actually carry through with the election and then only because there's an army backing them or the populace in question is extraordinarily disenfranchised.

I think Trump is a queer mix of both. He is speaking for an uneducated community that has become somewhat disenfranchised overall (the polarization of America, etc), but I predict that the bulk of his supporters are really just here for the show.

So Assange trolled the entire world. That was pretty awesome.

So Trump enters debate #2 utterly disgraced. We're going to drinking game it again.
