I get the feeling that most reviewers believe HRC won the debate. I also get the feeling that the country does not care.

Joke for November 9
Rent a bus, but only if Trump win. Park in Times Square or any other good midtown location. Label bus with “Free trip to Canada”. See how many takers you get.
Trump will win
Because of the recent story out of Haverhill, Massachusetts. Per video at link, neighbors gathered to support resident with ‘too many’ Trump signs. 32 square feet allowed and has way more than that. Several protestors were only supporting his 1st Amendment rights. “Many of the supporters that showed up said they were not there for Trump, but to support Early’s First Amendment Rights.” President Obama carried Haverhill 61% in 2012. Nevermind the pretense, in my mind, about the 1st Amendment. A solid blue town has substantial Trump support. Trump will win.
Zinger Editor Wanted
Per Althouse post, ” . . . Hillary seems to be getting scripted zingers ready . . .” After her ‘basket of deplorables’, Sec. Clinton would be well advised to have someone review her potential zingers.
CNN will go further
If Trump continues to gain, then I predict that by 10/31 CNN will inject the n-word in a quote by Trump. He will never have said it, but like the linked story, CNN will justify as ‘It is what he means’.
I very much liked this. http://www.worldaffairsjournal.org/blog/michael-j-totten/kosovo-oman. Read the whole thing. I there are more like Gökhan Balaban.
Sec. Clinton said, re the recent Chelsea bombing, “it’s always wiser to wait until you have information before making conclusions”. I believe it was Sunday morning. So there was an explosion in NYC that injured passerby. That is information, is it not? Her real message, “Wait for and believe in the spin once we have figured out what happened”.
Not much longer to election. Then, I hope, a president who will acknowledge the terrorists aiming at us.
Never far away
The whiff of totalitarianism is never very far away from Sec. Clinton. Half the people who support Trump are in ‘basket of deplorables’. “Listen to voters? No, voters should listen and follow her” is the apparent attitude. Not democracy, but aristocracy. Assuming she wins, how would Clinton handle or address the deplorables? In her view they are racist, sexist, homophobic or xenophobic. Re-education would be first; no need to listen to them, they need new ways of thinking. Then after that does not work, forced re-education.
Update: a commenter in Althouse blog points to Clinton’s call last year for fun camps for adults.
They say China is very angry with North Korea for its antics (to put it mildly) re nuclear weapons. But North Korea just set off its 5th bomb, and it sounds reasonably successful. Maybe China is just a paper dragon.
