30 long, dark nights for America: The second Presidential debate

by awindram

Thirty long, dark nights to go. 

Trump’s Daily Twitter Highlight: “It’s US vs. them! @realDonaldTrump will fight for you! #BigLeagueTruth #Debates

Clinton’s Daily Twitter Highlight: “Trump has said that the video doesn’t represent who he is. Anyone who heard it knows it’s exactly who he is.

But that’s not who we are.’”

Daily election of interest: Trump goes into full meltdown in second debate

Find myself trying to write this from a motel room in Maine with spotty wifi.

One of the silly conceits of these election blog posts is it the immediate thoughts just before sleep, what are the bits of election news that permeate the subconscious just before sleep. Well, tonight we have an absolute nughtmare, a new low for the American body politic – an actual Presidential candidate threatening to use the Presidency to jail his opponent. This reality is nightmarish. Now that I think about it, I got things weong with these posts where often open with how many  nights of tormented sleep are to be got through- being alseep is the only blessed relief we get from all this election nonsense. Take me away from here subconscious.
