My God. Could Trump win?

Holy crap. Clinton's only one point ahead in the polls. Trump may actually win. How do you like that.

When you nominate a corrupt candidate who nobody likes, you're bound to have serious problems.

Trump, Clinton, Weiner

This might be a good time for Anthony Weiner to make "aliyah" and flee to Israel. The sinewy New York Zionist is under investigation and facing years in prison for sending obscene messages to a 15-year-old shiksa in North Carolina.

While examining Weiner's sexting computer, the FBI also found emails between his wife, Huma Abedin, and Hillary Clinton. Abedin was Clinton's deputy chief of staff to from 2009 to 2013 when she was Secretary of State. So this opened the Hillary Clinton email scandal back up again.

It could be that Trump's complaining about the undeniable press hatred of him has paid off. They've finally been forced to show some interest in Clinton's criminality.

Clinton is well aware of all the dirt that could come out about her. She's been urging people to vote early so they can't later change their minds in disgust. She's also started focusing on "down ballot" races, apparently realizing that she'll likely be impeached once she's elected anyway.

My blood will run cold when I hear the election results no matter which of those two wins. They're both monsters and neither one is terribly bright. The United States is powerful enough in the world that it can get away with having morons in charge of the place. It is amazing how much smarter other world leaders seem to be.

Crisis in Six Scenes

I watched that Woody Allen thing on Amazon, Crisis in Six Scenes. It wasn't very good, but my expectations had been lowered to the point that I was okay with it. Some of the jokes were really terrible and there was this anti-leftist thing.

Allen is 80. I imagine he probably has ten relatively good years left in him and at least five not so good years after that. His father was over 100 when he died and had a job as an office boy when he was 90. His mother lived to be almost 100. There are a handful of directors who kept working past 100. I don't know what that tells you about directing as a job, but Allen may turn out to be one of them.

We're doomed

When asked if he would accept the election results if he lost, Trump should have said, "I don't know. What difference would it make? What does that even mean?"

Clinton's campaign has claimed that Trump and Green Party candidate Jill Stein are Russian agents. They claim that Russians have hacked everything and will stop at nothing to put Trump in the White House, but, for some reason, couldn't possibly hack the electronic voting machines even though it's been proven it could be easily done. Would Clinton accept the election results if she lost? If so, why?

By the way, there is one poll which shows Trump ahead by one point. It claims to have a 3.6% margin of error. So, hell, maybe he has a 4.6% lead. How can he lose?

Whoever wins, it will be a nightmare. Even if they do nothing objectionable, just having to look at either one of them and listen to their voice for the next four years would be too much.

And it will only be four years. Neither one of them would have the slightest chance of winning if they weren't running against each other. Wikileaks revealed that Clinton's campaign was aware of this. They were trying to somehow coax Trump into running before he had entered the race. There's no way either one could win a second term.

If Clinton wins, she won't be running against Trump four years from now. We'll end up with Ted Cruz or someone even worse in the White House. If Trump wins, at least it will inoculate us against that horror.

Jimmy Carter said he'd prefer Trump to Cruz, so maybe it wouldn't be that bad a thing.
