3. Find a strong analytical topic sentence and a weak one. Explain why you have identified them as such.
The first claim, that this election is not “original in its biliosness” is the strongest based on this outline. This is mostly because you have extensive subclaims to support it. This strengthens the argument and clarifies the point by offering several examples fromt the editorial. As there are only two claims, by default the second would be the weaker one. In comparison to the first, it seems like you don’t have quite as much support for it, but I think that’s more the nature of your organization than a flaw. I also don’t quite understand what you’re trying to accomplish with claim 2. Is this election not so bad because smear campaigining isn’t really that bad?
