"she's running as a serious politician."
"She's running as the establishment Wall Street candidate with more lies and less style."
There is some truth in that. You must be furious that the deplorables elected one of their own who got a bit of a spanking in the debate by a Wall Street candidate.
Say hello to Ted Cruz for us. How's he doing in the basket?

"She is held to a different standard because she's a woman"
Perhaps that plays a part but I get the sense she's held to a different standard because she's running as a serious politician.

"Why do some people interpret this to mean semi automatic weapons and powerful handguns?"
Because they like semi-automatic weapons and powerful handguns. Assault weapons really get the juices flowing.

"I actually think he did as good as he could, style-wise, especially if we compare that with the Trump we saw at primaries debates."
That's part of the problem. GOP candidates' debates are now so puerile and idiotic, it's hard to change to a higher gear for an intelligent debate. I don't think Trump has that gear anyway but this is a problem all GOP candidates will have.
Trump did the impossible - he made these debates even stupider. This is a considerable feat when you consider that this was a stage full of cross-eyed lunatics denying evolution in the past.
Dare to dream what 2020 could bring.

"I know the left is running wild with ludicrous accusations of Trump possibles doing blow,"
It's those partisans, Bass. They'll say anything no matter how wild and ludicrous to score a cheap point.
Oh, which do you think is more ludicrous, Trump possibly using coke or Obama possibly being a Muslim? I know you're on the fence on the second question.

Trump isn't good enough for the job. Set aside his insane and inflammatory babbling in the past and just watch this debate. I actually thought he put up a decent show all things considered. His ineptitude became clearer as the debate went on but he was in above his head here. The GOP candidates' debates are not good preparation for this level and that's a handicap the GOP needs to look at. You just can't make the step up in class from a fart-lighting competition to an intelligent debate.
As I said, just not good enough but I'd give him some marks for effort.

Is there a medical emergency in Japan which I haven't heard about? Should I be worried? All the JT physicians who were diagnosing Clinton's health from their keyboards seem to be otherwise engaged tonight.

Just watched this. I'd say Clinton got the better of it. She clearly knows her stuff a lot better than he does.
Also, she's just, well, more intelligent than him.

"the above comment I find extremely offensive"
I'm talking about IS sympathizers who are scum. Not all refugees.

Maybe the IS sympathizers could join in the fun by stripping down to their suicide vests.

You really shouldn't be identifying with this crowd. Trump is dragging you down to his level. Say hello to Ted Cruz while you're down there.

Do you think Trump's advisers have warned him against pulling the pouty, smacked arse face? Is that a possible vote loser?

So, you're ok with Hoppy? I don't know if you were a scrumpy drinker but the hangover I got from mixing cheap shochu with Hoppy in a session in Shimbashi was the kind of thing scrumpy did to you the next day. I liked the fact the staff didn't even bother disguising the huge plastic bottle of this drain cleaner. It was nostalgic. Not the dicky tummy after a touch too much Merlot - this was at the being smashed over the head by a cricket bat level.

An interesting quote. I remember listening to Sam Harris talking about Trump and he described him as finding a wormhole in US politics where the usual rules of conduct do not exist. He put it very bluntly that Trump has convinced people that basically telling people to go eff themselves when they point out his discrepancies is regarded as the new way of being honest and authentic.
It could be that Trump has laid down a new standard in politics. The truth of what you say is no longer the measure of being honest. Telling people to basically go eff themselves and launching into tirades when they point out your lies is the new measure of authenticity.
It's a worrying idea and I'm sure politicians the world over quite like the sound of this.

"Why Donald Trump? Ask Dr. Ben Carson" ( Youtuber A.D. Bell )"
Ask Carson if he still thinks Obama will declare martial law. Ask him about grain in the pyramids.
Even by GOP standards, Carson is a gibbering crackpot. This nutcase makes the likes Huckabee, Bachman and Cain seem rational. You may as well canvass opinion the dangerously disturbed ward.

"My guess is Michelle Obama will run for office after Hillary completely blows it tomorrow and drops out"
My guess is you will be completely wrong. That said, it would be great to see a candidate like Michelle Obama with that kind of intelligence, eloquence and class running for office.
Intelligence, eloquence and class - not qualities valued by the deplorable trash. They like knob jokes, name-calling and impressions of disabled people. Each to their own, I suppose.

"The 3-year-old George made headlines in the United Kingdom when George declined to high-five and then shake the hand of Trudeau during the arrival ceremony"
This made headlines? I see the people of the UK still enjoy reading mindless celeb crap. Depressing.

I remember a Japanese friend telling me that the gaijin on TV usually made him cringe. I think he took it too seriously. I'd do the performing seal routine if they paid me enough. I'm pretty sure these people go home laughing to themselves with the thought they are actually getting paid for this crap. Good luck to them.
