He's moving into Donald's head

Ralph Nader Supporters Warn Third-Party Voters: Don’t Make The Same Mistake!

.....But this cycle, Savage isn’t even considering voting third party. He’s now an outspoken Hillary Clinton supporter and literally works for the establishment as Democratic Party chair of Washtenaw County in Michigan.

And he wants to make sure that disaffected voters know exactly what they’re doing in this election before they go pull the lever for a third-party candidate like Jill Stein of the Green Party or Gary Johnson of the Libertarian Party.

“I was somewhat uninformed and felt like there wasn’t that big a difference between Gore and Bush, believe it or not,” he said. “Obviously, in retrospect, it was a moronic way to look at things......The Huffington Post spoke with Nader voters who have since figured out that the best way to fix the two-party system is to join it. They’ve worked in Democratic politics for years ― some as penance for what they did in 2000 ― and they worry that Stein voters are going to be making the same mistake they did with Nader.

“If you think there’s no difference between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton, then you’re not paying attention,” said Joe Rospars, who was the chief digital strategist for both of Barack Obama’s presidential campaigns and voted for Nader in Virginia when he was 19.....

Jesse Berney was 25 when he voted for Nader and has since worked at the Democratic National Committee and for Clinton’s 2008 campaign.

When asked if he regretted his vote, he replied, “Of course! John Roberts and Samuel Alito, the Iraq war, the huge irresponsible tax breaks, the pushing of abstinence-only education. The list goes on and on.”

........mucho mas...........


I hope their message gets through to whoever needs to hear it.

Tailgate - Schumer and the Bills

It's almost like this guy knows what he's doing.

"Good job, boys. This one will sink her for sure."


The quote is from noted HRC hater, Edward Klein.

She was defending bunnies in grade school, guys. Bunnies.

I love her.

New TV ad: Measure

Latino support for HRC at record high while Trump's shrivel

National Post-Debate Tracking Poll of Latino Voters Has Clinton With 83% Support

This is the first time since the summer that the weekly tracking poll, active since April, reported a number for Clinton greater than 80%. Before this week’s 83% result, Clinton’s highest number was 81% in July. Her lowest since July was 74%. In contrast, Trump’s 10.6% this week is his lowest number since April. His highest number was 17.2% in June.
Trump also saw a significant decrease with Florida’s Latino voters in this week’s poll, which was conducted days after the first presidential debate. The pre-debate NLV poll had Trump with 29.3% of Latino support in Florida. The post-debate poll now has Trump at 17.6%. Meanwhile, Clinton’s support jumped from 58.3% to 76.5%.

The debate, his treatment of Marchado, and violating the Cuban embargo are cited as possible factors in the collapse of Trump's numbers.

Empire cast endorses Hillary Clinton

Report: Trump Sexually Harassed Apprentice Crew Member by Comparing Her to His Daughter

He is a pig.

"If there was a break in the conversation, he would then look at one of the female cast members, saying 'you're looking kind of hot today, I love that dress on you,' then he would turn to one of the male cast members and say 'wouldn't you sleep with her?' and then everyone would laugh," said a former crew member who spoke on condition of anonymity because of a non-disclosure agreement.

More on one particular incident from an anonymous crew member:

"We were in the boardroom one time figuring out who to blame for the task, and he just stopped in the middle and pointed to someone and said, 'You'd f... her, wouldn't you? I'd f... her. C'mon, wouldn't you? ... Everyone is trying to make him stop talking, and the woman is shrinking in her seat."

Trump reportedly also harassed one female camera operator by comparing her to his daughter Ivanka. "Eight former crew members said Trump took a fancy to a particular female camera operator," the AP says, "and frequently gave her attention that made many on the set feel uncomfortable." A camera assistant named Rebecca Arndt said, "Trump would publicly discuss the woman's beauty and how her blue eyes and blonde hair compared to his daughter Ivanka's looks," the AP writes, quoting Arndt as saying that "I remember him comparing Ivanka to her and saying that only Ivanka was prettier." (The AP spoke to the husband of the camera operator in question, who denied that his wife had been subjected to any unwanted attention.)

Slate's Seth Stevenson interviewed a crew member who described similar behavior in a June piece:

“He would talk about the female contestants’ bodies a lot from the control room,” recalls one midlevel producer. “We shot in Trump Tower, the control room was on the seventh floor, and he walked in one day and was talking about a contestant, saying, ‘Her breasts were so much bigger at the casting. Maybe she had her period then.’ He knows he’s mic’d and that 30 people are hearing this, but he didn’t care. That’s kind of him. During the campaign, when he was talking about Megyn Kelly, I thought: He’s obsessed with menstruation.”


They all would have been made to sign non-disclosures, wouldn't they? How much more might we know about if people weren't worried about a tussle with America's Most Litigious Donald?

Offerman: people are very reluctant to see the patriarchy topple

I'm a big fan of his work and loved reading his take on this election.

“If she were not a woman, we would not be in this boat,” he said of the Democratic presidential nominee. "I think the election would be over already.

“And that’s another sad thing, that a large reason there’s so much anger and mistrust of her is because people are very reluctant to see the patriarchy topple,” the “Parks and Recreation” actor said.

“I am incredibly excited that the glass ceiling will be shattered. I mean, we’ve had our first black president and we’ll probably have our first woman president. But what an exciting accomplishment.”

Offerman also said Trump is not the solution to voters’ frustration with the political establishment.

“On one hand, I understand the dissatisfaction that has led to [Trump’s] selection,” as the GOP’s presidential nominee.

“But then, on the other hand, [there’s a] candidate that’s only, in my way of thinking, held such an unsavory job as a casino owner,” Offerman added of Trump. "Not only that, but a failed casino owner – a spectacularly failed one.


The Atlantic uses its third-ever presidential endorsement for Clinton (& to shred Donald)

The other two in the last 159 years were Lincoln and LBJ.


Of Trump they write:

...His affect is that of an infomercial huckster; he traffics in conspiracy theories and racist invective; he is appallingly sexist; he is erratic, secretive, and xenophobic; he expresses admiration for authoritarian rulers, and evinces authoritarian tendencies himself. He is easily goaded, a poor quality for someone seeking control of America’s nuclear arsenal. He is an enemy of fact-based discourse; he is ignorant of, and indifferent to, the Constitution; he appears not to read.
In its founding statement, The Atlantic promised that it would be “the organ of no party or clique,” and our interest here is not to advance the prospects of the Democratic Party, nor to damage those of the Republican Party. If Hillary Clinton were facing Mitt Romney, or John McCain, or George W. Bush, or, for that matter, any of the leading candidates Trump vanquished in the Republican primaries, we would not have contemplated making this endorsement. We believe in American democracy, in which individuals from various parties of different ideological stripes can advance their ideas and compete for the affection of voters. But Trump is not a man of ideas. He is a demagogue, a xenophobe, a sexist, a know-nothing, and a liar. He is spectacularly unfit for office, and voters—the statesmen and thinkers of the ballot box—should act in defense of American democracy and elect his opponent.
