  1. Tangentially related, but I’ve noticed over the past 3 or 4 weeks the Trump campaign seems to have adopted the strategy of taking whatever criticism it or Trump has gotten in the prevoius day or two and make the identical criticism of Clinton. (e.g.: if people are worried about Trump’s ties to Putin on Monday and Tuesday, then on Wednesday Trump will start accusing Clinton of being Putin’s puppet.)

    It’s like clockwork.

    I am unsure what to make of it.

    • Desperation? Trump has a campaign staff of, what, 30 trying to do what 300 are doing on the other side? Scooping up the enemies cannonballs and shooting them back at them is not an unknown tactic when you happen to have no ammo of your own.

      • Yeah, it still doesn’t make sense.

        There’s actually plenty of areas where Clinton can be vulnerable. As I have pointed out in the past, she’s not exactly universally beloved. So why focus instead on issues that are being brought up about you? It’s like Hilary Clinton going after Elizabeth Warren by saying, “I bet her husband bangs other women on the side!”

      No. I’m glue. And rubber. The stickiest glue and the bounciest rubber. Glue so sticky and rubber so bouncy you’re gonna get tired of my bouncing and sticking…”
      “Like your ex-wives?”
      “You’re my ex-wife!”

    • There was an article at Wonkette that analyzed Trump as a not-particularly funny class clown. Joking/Entertaining is his instinct. But he is not funny. Trump’s benefit and/or problem is that since he is really rich and powerful, he gets surrounded by lackeys and yes men who will laugh no matter what. This distorted his sense in what is and what is not funny.

      Trump is finally on a stage where his class clown nature is a liability and not an asset.

    • For what it’s worth, we could definitely do differently-bad with, say, Jim McGreevy on the D ticket. I’m not willing to make a claim as to whether Clinton is an unusually corrupt politician or if there are no other more corrupt Democrats.
