The second debate between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump only confirmed that we are experiencing the most squalid presidential race in modern times.
Others have been labeled the "dirtiest" and the "sleaziest" but the current electioneering for the White House establishes a new category: the trashiest..
Trump and Clinton are an insult to America. Yet maybe they are a reflection of contemporary American culture. They are trying to win the vote of a society which, in its values, often veers to its inner teenager on prom night.
Ironic how — in Trump's case at least — media elites who pan and scorn traditional morality want to use it as a club to pound those it doesn't like.
