Watch Out, Donald, There May Be Another October Surprise

Just because it's the end of the month doesn't mean there's not another October Surprise up someone's sleeve.

h/t Heather

Sure, it's the last day of October. But as EJ Dionne warns us, don't be surprised if Donald Trump is the subject of his own "October Surprise" in these last waning days of the weirdest presidential election of modern history.

Just playing the odds, it's not a bad bet. There hasn't been a week that at least one or two juicy, (in any other election year) disqualifying stories have come out about The Donald. And the sad fact is many of them are instigated by the Orange One himself, with his compulsive tweeting and "counter-punching" of anyone he perceives as "not nice" to him.

There's no way to know if the Clinton campaign has needed to dig into their own oppo research with the material he provided.

Or maybe since he's violating DOJ protocols left and right, FBI Director James Comey has another letter to send to Congress about Trump's ties to Russia.

Or perhaps there's new corroborating testimony on the then-13 year old girl that Trump allegedly raped, which has been largely ignored by mainstream media.

Or it could something completely different.

Makes this an exciting election, doesn't it?
