The polls are tightening all right. Like a noose. Half of America is ready to hang itself on the incoherent pipe-dreams of a certified narcissist who has as much in common with ordinary Americans as ordinary citizens have with a naked mole rat.

The suggestion that Trump has “policy ideas” is as absurd as saying Paul Ryan has policy ideas. I can see why Ryan couldn’t distance himself entirely from Trump. They’re kindred spirits, both bent on destroying the nation with fictitious economic policy schemes that do nothing more than protect the rich at the expense of the poor.

(The poor are an enormously valuable resource, like oil shale. Squeeze them hard enough, and a surprising amount of money comes out. Rich people know this instinctively, and they never get tired of watching the poor begging for money that came out of their own pockets. But I digress.)

Voters who are sickened by sleaze are disgusted—disgusted, I tell you!—with Clinton’s e-mail behavior. So they’d rather vote for a scummy, vulgar serial groper who orates with the vocabulary of a first-grader. They appreciate how difficult it is to grope with short fingers, so give the man some credit. You can’t say he doesn’t reach out to women, that’s for sure.

But some think that Trump is the lesser of two…you fill in the blank. Acceptable answers are “statesmen,” “intellects” or “human beings.” The only wrong answer is evils.
