Camp pain  
Hillary Clinton is a “freakishly unpopular front-runner”, perhaps because she can utter a declarative sentence without apologizing three times, even though she is female. Fortunately, she is running against Donald Deplorable, with cameo appearances by Gary’s Johnson (who is not sure what Aleppo is) and Dr. Feelbad (who won’t know what to do if they invent a vaccine against chemtrails).

Meanwhile, The Times may be giving up trying to triangulate between the candidate who says that 2+2 is approximately 4 and the one who says it’s 27, or maybe purple. Yesterday, they said in so many words, “Donald J. Trump officially retreated from the “birther” conspiracy theory he had clung to for years, while falsely accusing Hillary Clinton’s campaign of first raising doubts.”

I'd have liked to have seen a longer clip of the Great Aleppo Blunder than i was able to find. Once the interviewer explained that Aleppo was a city in Syria, Johnson said "Got it," which implies that he did know what it is, but perhaps he was only familiar with the name in print and didn't recognize it spoken. I've had problems like that occasionally. But I don't know because the clip ended there.

I must confess I also have never heard of "Aleppo" before, either. I don't know if I count it as a great blunder, but it should be grounds for him to say, and people accept, that he's *not* running based upon foreign policy.
