From (O)CT(O)PUS at The Swash Zone:

A presidential candidate defames minorities, mocks disabled persons, and demeans women. In a normal world, such misconduct would sink any candidate. I blame your news network for normalizing the abnormal.

Bombastic and malicious rhetoric earned the candidate an estimated $5.2 billion in free airtime (MediaQuant). Complicit in opportunism, your network reaped a massive ratings windfall. Suckered by a conman, you sacrificed objectivity and integrity on the alter of craven self-interest.

We have a comment policy (sort of)

We often encounter extreme amounts of spam targeting more controversial posts. This tends to annoy and confuse Aunt Tildy. If your comment is accidentally omitted, please help her out by resubmitting, perhaps including a note telling us what happened. If you find comments closed, we can still put yours in its proper place. Just attach to another post with an explanation.

Aunt Tildy appreciates most every comment. Truly. But she has what could be an unrealistic view of the innocence of younger readers. She may hesitate when profanity becomes extreme.

In some cases, you might follow our lead. When we ruffle her delicate sensibilities, a soft apology has usually helped.
