Man, am I glad these debates are over with. It’s not just because I’m tired of Hillary Clinton’s abject repulsiveness as a candidate – she’s not just unlikeable, her entire being has a total and complete aversion to telling the truth in any way, manner, or form – but because of the sheer media bullshit that surrounds these so-called “events”. The American public would be far better off having a moderator that just starts things off and lets both candidates have at each other for ninety minutes.

I’ll give FOX News’ Chris Wallace grudging approval for asking some tough questions, but when all is said and done he allowed Hillary to pontificate for far too long and seemed to cut off Trump when you could sense The Donald wanted to zero in for a kill. Still, the debate was not without substance, and I was surprised to see Trump hold his own against a seasoned candidate of thirty years who couldn’t even adequately defend the Clinton Foundation’s so called “charity” efforts when offered the opportunity. The fact a woman can lie with such a straight face in the face of countless allegations and media scrutiny is almost frightening to behold. Hard to believe. Hard to believe that she really believes that shit.

In the end, of course, it will all come down to the question of who won the debate. The Great White Shank never looks at “events” like this in such abstract lines. The bottom line, as I see it, is that you have an election between a total Washington insider and a total political outsider. Approximately 70% of the country thinks the country is on the wrong track. Barack Obama’s approval rating stands at 55%, but know that at least half that number allows for his personality and achievements with liberals alone. In a setting such as that you have a career politician go head-to-head with a total political outsider for three debates, over which said political outsider (at worst) battled to a draw in two (the first and last) and out-right won the second.

In my view (and I might be wrong but I highly doubt it given my political analytical chops) what Trump was trying to do was solidify the Republican base while reaching out where he could to traditional Democrats who normally would have no problem voting for their party’s candidate. Trump knows that Hillary’s unfavorables are sky-high and that the more people see her the more they are repulsed by her utter phoniness and unlikeability. His statements on the 2nd amendment and Supreme Court justices were spot on, and will help him in states like Utah and Nevada.

Donald Trump didn’t need to hit a home run in the final debate. All he had to do was show he could share a stage with Hillary Clinton without looking like some dangerous, unhinged moron. Not only did he do that, I thought, but like a good fighter does, he picked and chose when to punch and did it well. In a presidential “change election” where there is no incumbent running, all the outsider has to do is show he belongs. Which Donald Trump did tonight.
