Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
The US elections are leading the world in educating the electorate for new standards of political dysfunction and circus. Their 2016 election is surely breaking new grounds for dumb posturing. The circus with Trump, Hillary, another Bush (and a bunch of clowns that would had been laughed off even by Foxnews 15 years ago) might have been a fat dream of the same Fox-ish friends that same time ago.

I have seen this educative process in several countries in various flavors. The elections have almost nothing to do with what voters would really prefer. The media and political elites are in full control, even if they may seem clueless.
