I just wanted to say we should give a round of applause to this years' candidates' scandals.

Every election cycle necessitates the manufacturing of distractionary hits on each candidate. The past few cycles were incredibly lackluster in this area, though.

McCain too old? Eh. Obama not a US citizen? Oh come on. Swiftboat Veterans for Justice? Kerry didn't get quite enough shrapnel to deserve that purple heart? Oh. My. God. Laaaaaaaaaaame.

But this year? National security leaks? Credible rape and sexual assault claims? Charity fraud? What a treat. That's not even counting all the crap Trump said that hardly shook his campaign. To think that once upon a time the "Dean Scream" was enough to sink a candidate.
