Decline And Fall [Oct. 10th, 2016|10:10 am]
Tony Grist
And so the contest to become President of the United States (an office once dignified by Washington, Jefferson, Lincoln and Roosevelt) turned into a fight over who had committed the worst sex crimes.

Step back for a moment and look at it dispassionately- suspending party alliegance if you can- and consider just how deeply weird this is.

Weird and just awful - politics in the gutter.

But fascinating.

A sign of the times.

And the person running for President isn't even the person who is accused of the sex crimes in one case.

But she is accused of complicity. Like she supported her husband by rubbishing his alleged victims.

I was going to say it was the grungiest election in US history- but I believe things could get pretty dirty back in the 19th century too- though not as fixated on sex.

I was looking for anything quite this awful as a comparator and not finding it!

I doubt that there's ever been a presidential candidate as crass as Donald Trump
