Three Wins For Clinton

[There is absolutely no reason to read this crap. It was just mindless venting while 3/4 asleep]

   Not being a moron with obvious mental problems was enough to win, and HRC pulled that off with flying colors. Two questions in, I was kinda sad that I'd donated to her campaign,  but I soon remembered that I'm really donating to the generic anti-Trump, and was at peace. Her answer to the Supreme Court question was less embarrassingly ignorant, but possibly even scarier, than Trump's, since it basically came down to: I'll appoint justices that will advance the political ends I prefer. I was hoping for something more along the lines of: I'll appoint someone smart who will interpret the law objectively...but I suppose that was an irrational hope.
   Of course Trump once again showed that he is entirely unqualified for the office by refusing to say that he'll accept the outcome of the election. If he hadn't already proven himself to be entirely unqualified, that might have been a much more important moment than it was. The "bad hombres" line is already generating PC pearl-clutching. I'm willing to listen to explanations of why that's supposedly a horrific thing to say, but thus far, no good ones. The "vicious woman" line, frequent childish interruptions and the rest of his deranged shenanigans were just icing on the cake.
   Also, something he said made me think that he thinks he's intelligent...something I never considered before. I suppose I just figured that he knew, at some level, that he's an idiot...but now I think he might not actually be hip to that scene.
   Anyway, my $0.02.

[This was written when I was three-quarters asleep. Whatever. Who cares. It's really just venting. HRC did great given the circumstances, and I think she could be a really good President. She could be even more moderate than Obama. ]

What "thing" did he say that makes you think he's intelligent? I've never thought he was a complete idiot, but simply assumed he was an entitled ass who was too lazy to take the trouble to learn.

LOL that was supposed to be "...made me think he thinks he's intelligent..."

He's a goddamn moron, obviously.

Thanks, I'll fix that.

No, wait, it already says that. I misread it too when I read it after reading your comment.

So, yeah, that's what I meant.

I don't know why I didn't realize that, as JQ pointed out to me, he thinks he's the greatest at everything. But anyway, yeah, I think he really thinks that he's smart...which...kinda makes me feel bad even for him. I guess we might suspect Dunning-Kruger, over-used as that appeal is. (And, I guess, possibly BS/unreplicable like, apparently, the rest of psychology...)

Sorry about that. My observational and analytical skills clearly need some dusting off.

No, I read it that way too. It's probably that thing where your brain just drops a repeated word.
