Stemming the Red Tide

Taiwan has just elected
its first female president

the oppositional
Democratic Progressive Party leader
Tsai Ing-wen

whose party has traditionally leaned in favor
of an independent Taiwan.

An official press release from China
says that there is "no denying
that the DPP's return rule

poses grave challenges
to cross-strait relations."

There's an opportunity
for Donald Trump

to make another cheap shot
at Hillary Clinton's
hopelessly female candidacy

though he may accidentally indicate
his anti-democracy leanings.
