...Still days away from the blessed end of this election. Headlines are freaking people out. Warning of an impending Trump-ocolypse. Or a molt. Before we start opining that if Hillary Clinton were to lose which, folks, is not likely -- she'll have black voters to blame. Let's think about this year's MTV music video awards when Britney Spears staged her comeback. It was a well-choreographed performance where Miss Britney delighted fans. It came nowhere close to being the most talked-about performance of the night. She had to follow this. 16-straight minutes of Beyonce's lemonade-flavored performance.
