The p-word: The word that decided an election for President of the United States of America.  Perhaps only the third such in American history, like the number of times the Atlantic has endorsed a candidate in its 160 year history, the previous two being 1860 (WOTY "slavery") and 1964 (WOTY "nuclear weapons").


For those who are unsure what the p-word is, see the cover of today's New York Daily News, for at least the moment at:

Grab Them By The P***y: October 7, 2016 - Photos - New York Daily News front pages on the presidential election


The Daily News rates the Trump video at six kittens, presumably for "language".
