I did not think it was possible but he managed

To have an even worst debate performance than last time. This one is for the history books.

Cooper made him say he never kissed women or groped them without consent.

Its going to come back to haunt him. I am sure there will be plenty of women who will come forward to say otherwise...

we are fortunate bill weld is not heading the libertarians.

Gary Johnson is dimwitted enough that the millenials may reconsider and vote for Hillary instead. If Bill Weld was at the top of the ticket it would be harder.

He is being interviewed on meet the press and sounds smart, especially when compared to Johnson.
He did say that Hillary is the most qualified to be president and he has a lot if respect for her.

Yet he is saying he is trying to get his ticket elected.

Interestingly enough, he is saying he would be concerned about getting Trump elected but he thinks they are past the spoiler status given they poll at 15 to 20 % in many states ( i did not check, thats what he said. )

I voted today!

I live in virginia and you can vote absentee ballot in person at the registrar office since september 23rd.
I will likely be travelling for work on nov 8th so I went today. I was pleased to see that in my county they phased out all the touch screen voting machines. Its now a paper ballot you fill with a pen. Its then scanned and counted by the machine. It keeps the paper ballot for eventual recount.




meet the press this evening

So I was listening to MSNBC on my way from work. Meet the press was up and Chuck Todd was interviewing a Trump campaign surrogate. Jason Miller, a Trump spokesperson kept saying that Trump had won the debate, citing the bogus online polls taken right after. Even Todd who has quite a high threshold for bullshit and tends not to challenge lies was choked at that and kept pushing back.

They have a clip on there .

Its amazing how far these surrogates are going to deny reality.

booker is doing what obama did in 2004

He is delivering an incredible speech like president Obama did in 2004.

finally they are interviewing sane delegates

Bernie delegates from vermont of all places. Can hardly be more geniune. Yet they said they are happy with hillary and call for unity. Hopefully these people represent the bulk of Sanders delegates.

hillary potter !

thats what is on clintonkaine.com according to rachel maddow. Go there, its hillarious..

the contrast is striking between gop and dem reps

I was watching cspan this morning. Each rep has 5 minutes to make a statement on whatever topic they find important to bring to the attention of the speaker.

First was rep Capuccio , a democrat from Massachussets. He gave a brilliant speech on the necessity to have actual votes on "no fly, no buy" and the other bill to plug loopholes in background checks. He pointed out that the gop reps were afraid of standing up for their convictions and actually have an up or down vote on those issues. Instead they manoeuvered using congressional rules to twarth any attempt.

Following him was Jacky speirs , D from california. She too was pushing for the weapon bills. In doing so she had a poster showing the 54 people who died in 51 other mass shootings in june of this year and read their names.

Al green (D), from texas followed up and gave a powerful speech on the fact that black men are being killed by police. He emphasized what happened in the last two days and called for the speaker to assemble the house and do something about it.


Next was a republican. What did he talk about ? A bill to recognize a sport team for having performed so well in the championship....


How can he stand up there without shame and waste time on a trivial matter when issues of importance are being debated.

He was followed by Maxine Waters (D) who also pushed for gun control and the killing of black men. She dared the speaker to try to bring them to the ethic rule commitee regarding their sit-in.


why is gdp still up ?

Hillary is the presumptive nominee. Yet gdp is innundated with posts about polls showing hillary will lose to trump here or there , etc.. Not only is it nonsense, it accomplishes nothing.
