Whichever candidate wins this election, here are a few things that this election has demonstrated:
‐ There is no such thing as a post-political politician, and there never will be.
‐ Everything is still racist.
‐ MSNBC is more partisan than Fox News.
‐ Americans now like bailouts.
‐ America might be better off it it dropped bombshells on Gloria Allred and Donald Trump, rather than the other way around.
‐ Wisconsin is a swing state once more.
‐ Drones are uncontroversial.
‐ Mitt Romney is pretty funny.
‐ Bill Clinton remains a powerful actor in American politics.
‐ The Republican party appears not to want to win control of the Senate.
‐ Even if you are President of the United States, it is possible to run for a second term as an outsider.
‐ Barack Obama would win easily with almost any other country’s electorate.
‐ You can vote from space.
‐ Americans like energy. Both candidates felt a need to outdo one another as to how much coal they could burn.
‐ That debate is best that is moderated least.
‐ Embracing “climate change” is political suicide.
‐ Debates can matter.
‐ Discussing foreign policy around election time is unacceptably “politicizing” it.
‐ Fact checkers don’t check facts.
‐ The Democrats appear to have lost some of their advantage on Medicare.
‐ The pro-Second Amendment contingent has so thoroughly won the debate over firearms that it has been rendered almost a non-issue.
