Trump: The Law And Order Rerun

I am still digesting the presidential debate like a heavy meal that I ate too late in the evening. Of course I thought that Hillary was the winner on every point, and I believe that she profited from standing beside and up to Trump - Trump's interruptions, his glares and stares, his attention grabbing sniffles, his speaking in bumper sticker slogans, his snarling tone of voice should have been a warning to any possible Trump voter that the man is beyond unstable - but those may be the very qualities that appeal to them. He was so vile during his answer to the birther issue that I wanted to spray the TV screen with a disinfectant. We can only hope that the few undecided saw the difference between bluster and bigotry and true competence - and that we never have to face that self-regarding bigot as Commander-in-Chief, calling for martial law because something or someone offended his all too delicate sensibilities. He said "Law and Order" so often I began to think he was advertising for the now defunct TV show in its reruns - a far better show than the one he puts on. One thing I am obliged to admit - he still scares the bejesus out of me - he is like a human distillation of rage - a man made of toxic silly putty held together by his suit - and, if given a chance, a source of destruction for so many innocent people. If you have kids of voting age, or know a few, do your best to get them out to vote. It is their world that he will be destroying.
