Yes, I know it‘s tired, but the rumors of Donald Trump’s demise are at the very least premature.
When have they ever been right?
And why should last night have been any different?
Donald Trump would have won last night’s debate, walking away, if only for forcing the media to cover Bill Clinton’s history of sexual assault for the first time. (If you were out of your onesies in the 1990s, you got that, if not, Google it. Wait. Never mind. Probably the only place you’ll find it is in an old Ann Coulter book.)
I realize we are living in the culture of the narcissistic hipster, where sticks and stones actually can break bones, but really? Back in the day, Bill did worse than Trump’s little potty-mouth prattle while on a morning telephone call to a congressman, without even working up a … er, sweat.
Funny, Paula Jones, Juanita Broaddrick and Kathleen Willey didn’t look like “bimbos” when they took their seats on the front row, mere feet in front of Hillary. If anything, they looked like what they are: middle-age women slightly the worse for wear from years of looking over their shoulders.
Now that little stunt sure had Bob Schieffer spitting up his Ensure.
“How have we come to this? This is supposed to be a campaign for the most powerful office of the land. Here we’re marching in women into the hall who supposed to have some relationship with one of the candidate’s spouses. What’s that supposed to prove?” Schieffer said…
“Relationship with one of the candidate’s spouses. …”? Well, that’s certainly a forward way of looking at self-exposure, digital penetration and rape. Is it me, or did that venerable old fart just try to slip the Mojave Desert between Bill Clinton and his victims?
In the end, all this hubbub about Donald Trump’s indiscrete remarks, brought to light by (surprise!) a member of the Bush family this week, did give the media and blogosphere an excuse to use dirty words uncensored, and even in 24-point type in a couple cases. Try doing that when a Democrat says something vile.
Which brings us to Martha Raddatz and Ms. Vanderbilt’-Cooper’s little trust-fund baby, Anderson.
In the baseball playoffs, three strikes means a batter is finished. In the presidential debates, it means the media are just getting started. Three debates (this was the second presidential debate, a vice-presidential debate was held on October 4) – three different sets of biased moderators.
Sunday night’s moderators Anderson Cooper, from CNN, and Martha Raddatz, from ABC, virtually took the field wearing blue jerseys with “I’m with her” on the back. … [read it all]
If Heidi Fleiss had had that kind of pimping, we would have never heard of her.
When is the GOP going to put the kibosh on this nonsense? The Republican leadership has passively set by while the MSM unabashedly helps drag this old hag across the finish line. It is high time to scotch the current debate format and find a fairer system.
Anyway, game on …
