Day 1359

Wednesday, October 5, 2016

Racquetball, work, reading, writing, another day in Paradise.  Oh, and catching up on all the post-VP debate spin, which has played out as expected.  Kaine was yippy yappy and Pence was factually wrong on nearly everything.  A split decision and that was that...back to the top of the ticket and the main event.  The news is still focused on Trump, his mistakes, his taxes (or lack of), his language, his sexist behavior, his bravado, his insults, the list goes on and on.  For me, it comes down to his inability to own what he alone created, which was the so-called birther movement that he held onto for five long years.  He has to own his birther movement, but instead he's passed it off as Hillary's creation that he ended.  Wrong.  He started, continued, and concluded this fantasy notion that Obama was not an American, and then when he ended it, he pointed to someone else and said, "It was her...she started it."  Like a five-year-old who hasn't learned how to accept responsibility.  Of all the crazy sociopathic nonsense he's spun for his and our amusement, this to me the truest sign of his character.  He is such a coward for not owning this.  I have only contempt for any person who refuses to own his own bullshit.  He's truly disgusting and wholly unqualified for any high office, let alone President of the United States.  I think America will get this one right with a big turnout and a much wider margin than the polls are projecting.

Speaking of polls, I love the fivethirtyeight numbers for Hillary.  They're rising by the hour.  She's past 70% now and might actually reach 80% by the end of the week.  We'll see.
