I bet you're thinking I'm going to write some sarcastically grateful post about how Donald Trump is practically handing this election to Hillary, whom I've backed since the salad days of 2015. Nope. This goddamn thing could still turn on a dime so I'm keeping my cart firmly behind my horse.
This is something else.
When Isis (the Egyptian god, not the terrorist ratfuckers) tricked Ra into giving up his real name, she had complete control over him and was able to put her own son on the throne. When the Miller's daughter learned Rumplestiltskin's true name, she got to keep her child and her husband and all her wealth.

Oh, Donald Trump, you sculpture your three-year-old made out of soggy ground-up goldfish snacks, by naming it, you've taken away so much of its power!
Pussygrabbers, through the years, have been sure they're members of a rare and privileged group; they've thought that all women wanted them and all men wanted to be them. But that name makes it a little harder to be smug, doesn't it?
Pussygrabber is not "male, chauvinist pig," which is what we called pussygrabbers back in the day. That phrase was ladylike, easy to scoff at and claim feminine hypersensitivity in the face of. But pussygrabber is happy to make you feel uncomfortable. Pussygrabber means we know exactly who you are.
The emperor has no clothes and his name is Pussygrabber. And come November:
