Do we all have to sink to Trump’s level?

I have a real problem with the thesis of this Washington Post piece: Il Douché will continue to act like a spoiled three-year-old, and the rest of us will just have to suck it up. Do we have no shame? I know the presumptive GOP candidate is shameless, but it would be nice if Tumulty and other journalists, networks, et al, had a little and would tell Baby LeRoy and his parents that certain behavior is unacceptable in public.

I think the turning point of the race will be the debate(s). Hillary has a history of debating members of the He-Man Libruls Haters Club. Il Douché is going to make Rick Lazio look like George Clooney.
