Apart from a momentary aberration involving a too-tempting news photo, I've tried to stay out of commenting on the US elections because I'm entirely sick of the whole distasteful circus. But that doesn't mean I haven't been reading about it, because I'm a journalist and that's what I do
, and I'd like to point everyone at davidjwilliams
's place, where Dave has been quietly, calmly, and with much good sense, anatomising the latter days of the campaign. I should have bigged him up earlier, and for that I apologise, but he's been a level head in this lunacy and for that I thank him.
