An Important Anniversary

On this date — Oct. 8 — four years ago, in wake of the Access Hollywood tape release (“grab ’em by the p***y”), I pronounced this an “unrecoverable error.” The election was effectively over, and there was no way that Donald Trump could be elected president.

Never have I been so confident of any prediction, and never have I been so happy to be proven wrong. Just when you think all is lost, in other words, you have to realize there is always hope.

This is important to remember, at a time when the Real Clear Politics average of national polls show Joe Biden nearly 10 points ahead. This engenders feeling of utter hopelessness — are Americans really stupid enough to elect that doddering old fraud? — but I think back to how certain I was four years ago that Trump would lose, and I feel better.
