Major hat-tip to my better half Driftglass for the #TrumpsKatrina hashtag. The number of times the media asked if "this" -- whatever it was -- was "Obama's Katrina." geesh...

And while some of the media is perseverating over ways to make sure this is still a horse race after the worst. convention. ever. Remember, the Melania plagiarism is awful. But it's not the only thing.


List is from here.

And this is such a weird convention, that I am actually ...sob...taking writing advice...gasp...from Liz Mair?

Can you help us out?
