four more weeks! four more weeks!

October 5, 2020

In less than a month, Americans will have its biggest voting day in a campaign that has seemed to go on forever and could carry on for weeks after Nov. 3rd. I’m more hopeful than a month ago because every choice Trump makes recently is increasingly desperate and reckless.

His 90-minute shit fit at the first debate served to remind us that there’s no bottom to his shamelessness. All Biden had to do was occasionally object and throw in a “shut up” now and again. If there’s a second debate, Aging Orange will fare even worse because it will be in a town hall format, Biden’s strength.

His hospitalization is a joke. It might gain sympathy for a sympathetic person, but Trump is flat out toxic. I laugh heartily at the photos and video that comes out of Walter Reed Hospital. To put him in the best luster possible, he’s been lit like he’s in a romantic comedy.

His speedy spin outside Reed yesterday put Secret Service personnel in harm’s way for no purpose other than a photo op for the masked POTUS. The hermetically-sealed, bulletproof limo could not have been a better symbol of his detachment from reality. And how can his premature return to the White House go well?

This is the time in the campaign when leads usually narrow. Biden’s lead is widening, including in the crucial swing states. The political website 538 has Florida, North Carolina, Arizona, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, Michigan and Minnesota leaning Democrat, with Iowa, Texas, Georgia and Texas still in play for the Dems.

Biden is now racking in donations while Trump struggles. Trump claims he will personally put up millions. I’ll believe that when I see his health plan in yet a few more weeks.
