Appears to still be falling short


don't know

I'm not a doctor. And neither is Dean, for 25 years now.

But if you don't want to believe me that he's disgracing himself, would you believe Vox?


Not exactly right-wing media over there.

This is as bad as all that innuendo about Hillary's health. We don't want to use Republican tactics here, do we?

Dean hasn't been a practicing physician since 1991

The year he became governor of Vermont, on the death of the sitting governor.

These days he's a lobbyist.


I lose respect for that guy every time he opens his mouth lately.

I give not half of one fig

whether Ted Cruz has suffered any damage -- to his dignity, his political career, his relationship with his wife or his father, to anything of any value to him in the remotest of ways -- with his endorsement of Trump.

But it is instructive that it took Dan Patrick, the LG of Texas, to make the mob threat ("nice Senate seat ya got there, shame if somethin' happened to it") to Cruz with being "left in the rearview mirror" of the GOP for him to be motivated to endorse Trump. What that tells me is that Cruz was motivated by fear; by the possibility that someone to his right would primary him in 2018.

Someone to the right of Ted Cruz. Who could defeat him.

Let that sink in.

That link won't get you over the paywall

But this one will:


Unable to deal with Cruz endorsing Trump ...

Glenn Beck, consumed by anguish, renounces the world to live as a wandering ascetic in the mountains.


Never get baked in the morning

before a teevee interview.

That's the takeaway here.

She might also explain

the relationships with her donors:

Hillary Clinton has taken too much money from people with business before the government to dismiss concerns about conflicts of interest out of hand.

She's taken it in smaller sums from direct donors to her campaigns for Senate and president, much larger contributions to the party she now runs, eye-popping personal payments for speeches and astronomical gifts to the Clinton Foundation.

The public deserves to know how she plans to prevent all that money from unduly influencing her if she is elected president.


This is a a fair critique, yes? Jonathan Allen (author of OP) is no Trumper, having been frequently cited by Media Matters in defense of Clinton and the Benghazi "investigation" (sic).

It will be a debate question (hopefully, if it never becomes press conference question, that is).

I get it.

IOKIYAR so it should be okay for her.

I'll ask again: Republicans are the standard to be emulated in this regard?
