Inescapable Fact : Our Leader

Aug
26

David Remnick:

This is the inescapable fact: on November 9th, the United States elected a dishonest, inept, unbalanced, and immoral human being as its President and Commander-in-Chief. Trump has daily proven unyielding to appeals of decency, unity, moderation, or fact. He is willing to imperil the civil peace and the social fabric of his country simply to satisfy his narcissism and to excite the worst inclinations of his core followers.

It's the Turn-out Stupid

Nov
20

Enough with the crazy-talk. Clinton faced an extremely common problem after eight years of incumbency, namely lack of enthusiasm on the part of the Dems:

In Wisconsin, overall turnout was lower than in the 2012 presidential election. Trump actually was a few hundred votes shy of 2012 Republican nominee Mitt Romney's total in the state, but Clinton was around 240,000 votes short of Obama's 2012 tally. She ended up around 24,000 votes behind Trump in the state.

All In the Family

Oct

So let me get this straight: it's now the relative of a candidate that's fair game? Are those the new Trump Rules?

Basically all Clinton needs to do is to growl at the jerk: “Leave members of my family out of this. The only two people running for office are you and me.”

Fear of a Donald Planet

Aug
18

Wow, I didn't expect this. In the course of just two days, two pretty well established media entities not especially known for political views, namely Scientific American and Wired Magazine, just came out and endorsed Hillary. Amazing.
