Found it on Facebook — the Trump “sex tapes”

Scott Adams had this to say about the purported bombshell that Trump, a known playboy, talked dirty:

Clinton supporters hated Trump before this latest outrage. Trump supporters already assumed he was like this. Independents probably assumed it too. Before you make assumptions about how this changes the election, see if anyone you know changes their vote because of it. All I have seen so far is people laughing about it.

My Facebook trolling confirms this. I’ve culled Facebook posts from my real-me page (mostly Progressive friends) and my Sunny “Bookworm” Berman page (mostly conservative friends). You’ll see that they’re exactly in line with Adams’ prediction. With one exception, I’m including only posts in which the poster had something to say, even if what they were saying was simply an add-on to an article they were posting. A lot of Progressives did bother to add anything. They just posted the ready-made articles from the New York Times, Washington Post, Slate, etc. Indeed, one could even suspect that these outlets had the articles ready to go in advance. Conservatives on Friday and Saturday morning had to go it alone before the blogs started catching up.

I’ll lead with the Lefties:
