People who know me realize that I rely on the BBC for both news and entertainment. And this year, because of the batsh*t crazy things one candidate has said, there has been a substantial overlap of those two categories. Nah, shan't bore y'all with a long disquisition on how unsuitable the tweeting mad carrot is for the job, I'll leave that to the experts.
Historians and psycho-analysts, four years from now.
