Actually the thread discussing Billy Bush's dismissal from NBC says it all for me. This behaviour is not fitting a TV personality never mind a presidential candidate. If Trump gets elected it will be like giving permission to young men and boys that women are to be treated like sex objects and speaking about them and to them as objects is OK.
This is a network that has Howard Stern on its payroll.
Come to think of it, this is a network that employed Donald Trump himself, all the while knowing what a creep he is.
Come to think of it some more, this is a network that employed Bill Cosby. What the hell is going on at NBC?

It's so much more fun to play "No! MY Penis is Bigger!" than to take a forthright look at the danger in condoning deplorable commentary and behavior for political expediency.
Partisans are always going to line up their morality to their partisan interests. And as we see this year, for many of them that morality is a lot more flexible. And it's fear based. Instead of doing the right thing and worrying about later consequences, people make excuses with doomsday scenarios. They gotta support Clinton because Trump and vice versa. The country can survive a bad person becoming president. It can't survive too many voters willing to accommodate bad people becoming president.

THAT'S the message. And don't think the ruling/aspiring ruling class aren't watching and listening to what the electorate will (self-servingly) accept, defend and excuse.

Which is apparently anything. literally.

Incumbents, would-be's, and their corrupt media enablers have been given no reason whatsoever to find honesty, morals, ethics or integrity for the next election cycle, either...or the one after that, etc etc.

it'll 'correct' at some point...there is an expiration date. Then from the ashes, it'll all start again...rinse/repeat until the sun burns out.
