So we had another debate last night.
The fascinating part I thought came after the debate ended. Many of the MSM talking heads, followed by print journalists, declared that Donald Trump had "stopped the bleeding."
Of course, they were commenting that what had been stopped was the news that had been focused on the leaked video whereby Trump declared on a bus, perhaps very accurately, that because of his star status some women would allow him to grab their vaginas.
I found it interesting that these talking heads had juxtaposed talk of grabbing a vagina with stopping the bleeding. If this had been, say, Mark Twain or H.L. Mencken making this juxtaposition, I would think, "The clever bastards" and enjoy the word play. But I really doubt today's modern day talking heads and print scribes had a clue as to what they were saying.
Stopping bleeding after grabbing a vagina, is pretty close to parting the sea.
From my Google feed:
The other debate night occurrence that caught my immediate attention was another grab, This one occurred before the debate when Hillary Clinton arrived. As she stepped out of her black SUV, but before she had to navigate some very easy steps, Chelsea Clinton grabbed her mother and hugged her from the side and continued to hold her tightly from the side as they climbed the steps.
I did not get the sense that this was somehow an exchange of closeness between mother and daughter but rather a preplanned stratagem to get the old hag up the steps without having the optic of a mysterious three hundred pound black man help her up the steps.
The media took no notice.
As for the debate itself, Hillary continued to show limited but well-practiced range and Trump showed improvement over his first debate. Trump jabbed nicely in this round but could have easily knocked her back into Chelsea's arms if he had even a slight knowledge of history and serious debate practice which would have resulted in a much smoother presentation by him.
The best he did here was stop the bleeding.
