How did it come to this?
How did the US Presidential election campaign come down to this vile,tawdry,vulgar slanging match? How in a country of over 330 million people can the political parties only find one candidate who is a hate filled,vile,sleazy ignorant,lying thug and the other a candidate with so little personal charm and so much personal "baggage"?
I just read that Iranian TV broadcast the second Presidential campaign debate live because the Ayatollah wanted to show Iranian citizens what the much vaunted American democracy was really like. They would have been as disgusted as I was.
This whole tawdry episode is doing so much damage to the image of the US in the world. How did it come to this?
