Be on the lookout for H. L. Mencken! I've found evidence that he time-traveled here for inspiration.

It's obvious!

Why am I seeing so much shocking and outrageous news about Trump from Google News?

Is Google News funneling bad news about Trump to me based upon a profile they've built of me, or does a truly unbiased sampling of the news really look as shocking, outrageous, and grim as what I'm seeing?

I guess I could log off of my Google account and find out, but I'm afraid.

Did you ever notice that post excerpts that make the front page of DU lose their apostrophes?

If you post something like "you won't see apostrophes because they don't show up" and an excerpt makes the front page, the title won't be affected but the body will. It'll say "you wont see apostrophes because they dont show up."

What's up with that?

I wonder if any other presidential candidate in American history has ever used the word "pervert."

"Deadbeat Donald" - has a nice ring to it!

The Trump Files: Trump's Long History of Getting Sued By His Own Lawyers

"He's a deadbeat."

During his decades in the real estate world, Donald Trump famously shortchanged many small businesses on the money he owed them.

(snip several examples...)

But Trump also tried to underpay the very same lawyers who helped him save money, and some ended up suing their former client.

...

It wasn't just big amounts Trump tried to get out of paying, either. Bill Scherer, a lawyer in Fort Lauderdale, had to sue Trump in 1994 to collect $5,000 in unpaid legal bills from a case Scherer won for the billionaire. The lawyer told Reuters last year he had offered Trump a low rate to "curry favor" with the mogul, but still had to sue. "He's a deadbeat," Scherer told South Florida's Sun-Sentinel newspaper. Trump told Reuters that he couldn't remember Scherer or the case at all.

American Contract Bridge League to introduce a new term for a card of the highest-ranking suit.

Just kidding.

Der Untergang

I hear in Germany they're posting funny German-subtitled Trump videos titled "Trump is informed that..."

Perhaps Hillary Clinton would do well to follow Ryan's example: Just Ignore Trump

Announce at the final debate that since her opponent is no longer relevant, she'll instead talk about what she plans to accomplish as president.

Der Untergang

The movie Der Untergang, known as "Downfall" in English, depicts Hitler's final days in his Berlin bunker as he unfairly calls his generals traitors and holds them responsible for his inevitable loss. It's the source of the many hilarious "Hitler is informed that..." YouTube clips with rewritten subtitles.

If you haven't already seen it, now is a great time to watch this movie because of the spooky way it mirrors current events.

Voting Instructions: Look to the right of each name. "DEM" stands for "Do Enter Mark."
