The deception, with tact
Just what are you trying to say?
You've got a blank face, which irritates
Communicate, pull out your party piece
--The Fixx

Accusations from Trump and now from WikiLeaks that the US presidential election has been rigged.
Cries of blasphemy emanate from the people accused of...doing the rigging, naturally. Such rhetoric is 'dangerous,' they shout. It threatens the American institution of democracy, they drone.

Many of the same people have, of course, had no problem challenging the legitimacy of past elections. No issues with seeking to destroy other American 'institutions.'

Perhaps the most delicious irony is that the Clinton campaign, after disparaging Trump for suggesting that the US election is rigged, turns around and suggests that Trump & Co are working with the Russians to...rig the election.

The theatre involved suggests that the lady et al doth protest too much, methinks.
