As I have said previously: Can each party not just go dark for one week, and allow the other party to have its short time in the limelight?

This is surely the shattering of a norm--a norm of civility...
Democrats abandoned civility during the GW Bush administration. Bush tried to stay above the fray, but the MSM worked in collusion with the Democrats to constantly paint everything he said or did, in the worst light possible.

And just when you think it couldn't get any worse than that, they doubled down on their incivility with Trump. The difference is that Trump never made an attempt to stay above the fray. He saw what happened to Bush and decided that he would punch back twice as hard.

Unfortunately, while I would prefer to see a return to civility, the Democrats have drug us to this point. The only way I see it ending is if the Democrats pay a high enough price for their incivility to the point where they concede defeat. I can only hope that happens soon.

I don't believe the Democrats will ever concede an election again. Even if Trump wins the electoral and popular vote by a landslide. They will say he cheated, and start the impeachment proceedings again, with the MSM behind them. (or in front of them)

Unfortunately, I believe you are correct. That is why I said I would HOPE. But I will most likely concede that it is nothing but hope at this point.
