I'm never surprised at any campaign playing dirty. What amuses me, is how Trump has seemingly lost the agility that defined him early in the primary.

The Trump that doesn't pay income tax would just say that it's goofed up, and just like that because people like him buy politicians like Hillary. He's lost his touch for rhetorical reversals, and probably the race with it. Not that I thought he ever had a chance.
