[Translate] Election 2016 Those involved in this long con need to do some serious soul searching. By Janet Allon / AlterNet Photo Credit: YouTube/Moyers It’s a headscratcher, really. Inquiring minds want to know: How did the race between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton get so close? Paul Krugman advances a theory in Friday’s column, and expresses the fervent hope that the one-sided first debate will help to turn the tide. One reason for that is that the debate enabled Americans to once again see Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump unfiltered. Clinton exhibited “grace and even humor under pressure,” much as she did in last year’s Benghazi hearing. Trump was resplendent in his trademark “whiny braggadocio,” as Krugman puts it. Part of the reason for the close race is extremely disturbing. “A lot more Americans...

Many of us men are familiar with this expression, because we practice it at age 13 in the hope that it will impress girls. It doesn’t, and we grow out of it — most of us, anyway. Hillary Clinton wears a patient smile, the expression of every woman who has calmly suppressed irritation while being harangued by a boor on topics he knows nothing about. Sadly, women never have the opportunity to retire this expression because it is constantly needed, or so my wife tells me. What is thrilling is that Trump’s boorishness may be catching up to him.

Michael Moore made a claim on Twitter that actually, it was Trump who “won”: Michael Moore already said he thought Trump would win the Republican nomination (he did). He has also said, to Bill Maher, on Huffington Post, and to Business Insider, that Trump will win the election.
