The Horror of the Headlines

Today’s online New York Times has a horrifying collection of headlines about polls showing Trump leading Biden, Biden’s unpopularity, and the damaging effect of the weakening of the Voting Rights Act.

Biden has performed well as President, and though he has fallen down in some respects, for example in not holding anywhere near enough news conferencesand ducking chances for direct communication to large audiences, he is manifestly superior to Trump as a candidate by such an enormous margin that one wonders if some malevolent spirit has invaded the brains of much of the populace.
