I admit it -- this election is unusual. I wish what we're witnessing were actually more "out of the ordinary"

Hello, Daniel

I just did some lookups, using keywords like "Post Melania disgust", expecting to see conservatives aghast at the exploitation of Trump's wife by the MSM. Instead, I see that the Post is actually considered "pro-" Trump, that there isn't much disgust anywhere about anything anyone REALLY should be disgusted at (like the exposing of the nakedness of someone's wife), and that friend and foe alike are simply ogling these nude photos in a supposedly "family" newspaper. I was shocked in the 1990s, when Bill Clinton's popularity rose with every lurid detail of of Bill's exploitation of women (and Hillary's abetting him). I had to chalk that up to the immorality of Democrats in general. Now we have this episode -- a replay of Sleazy Ted Cruz's tactics, put on by Trump's...

ALLIES??????

I apologize to you, Daniel, for contradicting your calling this election "unusual". That is actually the kindest thing you could have set about the American psyche. I know that candidates have been regularly slandered -- from people whispering that Andy Jackson's wife was an adulterer, to... to what? I don't know. JFK had an affair with Marilynn Monroe, and his family and staff were careful to keep it out of public eyes. Now, nobody is keeping anything from anyone's eyes, millions of the MSM are shedding crocodile tears for a Muslim the Dems. hired to insult Trump, Hillary tells new lies about her old lies every few minutes, every statement by every candidate is is twisted, then the words rearranged, then the letters rearranged; until reading the news is as informative as reading a bowl of Alpha Bits. If this election were NOT "unusual", this country would be in worse shape than anything I can imagine.

Hillary Clinton is the most disgusting specimen of Homo Sapiens I can imagine; but this new stream of smut oozing out of every pore, both in the USA and abroad, makes me fear for mankind. Go ahead, Daniel. Vote for whomever you want, or don't vote. I think the ship is going down, with all on board.

God bless and keep you and yours.
