Paging the future winner of the Pulitzer: David Fahrenthold

Thank you America: ....from a phone call I got from Germany

A friend of mine set his alarm for the middle of the night, the infamous 3 am, so he could listen to the "Debate".
His comment was:
"Thank you America for now broadcasting your comedy shows live."

Who knows what tomorrow brings....so I post this tonight

Republican Party Could Recover as Early as 2096, Experts Say and so does Borowitz



WASHINGTON (The Borowitz Report)—In what is being described as a best-case scenario, some political experts are predicting that the Republicans could once again be a viable political party as early as the year 2096.

Davis Logsdon, the head of the University of Minnesota’s political-science department, said on Saturday that the eighty-year time frame for the Republican Party to recover was “admittedly optimistic, but still doable.”

“It’s not going to be easy, and they have very little margin for error,” Logsdon said. “But if they do everything right and a lot of things cut their way, they could be up and running as a somewhat serviceable political party as early as 2096.”

According to the political strategist Tracy Klugian, however, Logsdon’s 2096 target date for the Republicans’ comeback is “laughably upbeat.”

“In order for the G.O.P. to become even a marginally functional political party again, all memory of the 2016 campaign will have to be obliterated,” Klugian said. “That means everyone who witnessed it will have to be dead, and probably those people’s children, and their children’s children, too. I wouldn’t bet on the Republican Party recovering any earlier than the year 2132.”

When asked about Klugian’s assessment, Logsdon said, “Yeah, 2132 is probably more like it.”

Pence Opens V.P. Debate by Begging Private Sector to Hire Him --- tells Borowitz




FARMVILLE, VIRGINIA (The Borowitz Report)—The Republican Vice-Presidential nominee, Mike Pence, stunned a national television audience on Tuesday night by using his opening statement in the Vice-Presidential debate to beg the nation’s private sector for a job.

Shortly after the moderator, Elaine Quijano, told Pence that he had two minutes to make his statement, the Indiana governor looked directly into the camera and said, “I’m going to get right down to it. If you run a company and you’re watching this right now, I beg you from the bottom of my heart to consider hiring me. I need a job and I need it bad.”

Pence urged employers to consider his many qualifications and to ignore his role in the 2016 Republican campaign. “As God is my witness, I take no responsibility for this dumpster fire,” he said.

Stressing the urgency of his situation, Pence said that his political career was in ruins and pleaded with employers to visit his LinkedIn profile.

As the moderator warned Pence that his time was up, he shouted, “I can start Wednesday, November 9th!” before the camera abruptly cut away.According to published reports, no employers expressed immediate interest in hiring Pence.

New Scoop from Rachel just now to officially break tomorrow

Kurt Eichenwald cover story breaking at Newsweek in the morning - from a partial article -

""The Castro Connection" how Trump's Company violated the embargo against Cuba"

They secretly conducted business in Cuba during Castro's presidency despite strict embargo from the US.
Spent a min of $68 000 for the foray into Cuba, funneled the money into Cuba illegally and pretended to link the money to a charitable effort.
He conducted business in Havana illegally while skirting the embargo, and lied about it at the time when he first considered running for President in 2000.

"Watch this space"
