NY Times on liberals' Hillary panic: "Tsunami of unease"

It appears that even the New York Times, which has not endorsed a Republican presidential candidate since 1956, is having doubts about Hillary Rodham Clinton. After all, they are reporting on it.

Man, did I ever enjoy this NY Times piece.

Really. I did.

While the Times isn't ready for Trump Autumn--whereas I am--it seems to be preparing for Hillary Winter.
But as Hillary Clinton lurches toward Election Day, her supporters at times seem overwhelmed by a tsunami of unease, exacerbated by Mrs. Clinton's bout of pneumonia and a slow-footed acknowledgment of the illness. They are confronting a question they had assumed, just a few weeks ago, they would not need to consider in a race against the most unpopular presidential nominee in modern times: Could Mrs. Clinton actually blow this?

A cartoon in The New Yorker captured it best: A woman sits in her psychiatrist's office, perspiring in distress. The doctor scribbles on a pad. "I'm giving you something for Hillary’s pneumonia," the caption reads.

Supporters of Mrs. Clinton have greeted the moment with varying degrees of alarm, according to interviews with dozens of them across the country.

They read warily about the health of her lungs and her swing-state field operations. They reassure one another by reminding themselves of President Obama's two winning campaigns, which encountered similar fits of concern after Labor Day.
The liberals they spoke with come from the typical snooty locales, Seattle, Portland, Chicago, and of course Manhattan.

Trump Autumn is here. America is getting ready.
