Damn, Tim! You tore it up!

We got us a dream team!

If in 2008, Sen. Obama's acceptance speech audience was filled with screaming, snarling black people

yelling for McCain's head as their candidate ran through a litany of what was wrong with America ...

What would the reaction have been?

Reaction to Angry Minority Voters -> Why are they so angry?

Do they have any right to be angry? Is their anger justified? Should they be expressing it this way? Wow, they're sure making a lot of noise. What will make them shut them up? No, that's too much trouble. We'll just ignore them ...

Reaction to Angry White Voters -> What do we need to do to make them feel better?

This speech is a complete disaster for Trump

It's not a convention speech. It's a series of one-liners from his stump speech strung together into an almost incoherent, themeless diatribe. He's talking to the racist, terrified white people he's been talking to for a year and who are already voting for him.

He's screaming at a nation of people who have not decided to vote for him. He's yelling insults at a President with yuuge approval numbers. He's haranguing his crowd to behave like bloodthirsty assholes who scare the rest of the country.

It sounds like Trump battled his advisers and speechwriters and, unfortunately, he won.

My VP Short List

1. Xavier Becerra, U.S. Congressman (CA)
2. Anthony Foxx, Secretary of Transportation
3. Tammy Baldwin U.S. Senator (WI)
4. Deval Patrick, former Massachusetts Governor
5. Elijah Cummings, U.S. Congressman (MD)
6. Sherrod Brown, U.S. Senator (OH)


Donald Trump is now quoting Bernie Sanders...

During a rally with Gingrich just now.

"She has got bad judgment. And you know who said that? Bernie Sanders!"

Nice job, Bernie ...

Hillary - dayum, gurl!

Fired up and ready to go, f'real.

Can't wait for the horrified outrage about impropriety when Hillary and POTUS go a-campaigning next


After all, President Obama appointed Loretta Lynch and she reports to him, so technically, he is in charge of the email investigation. Neither Hillary nor Bill Clinton should not go anywhere near him, much less have any conversations with him since someone somewhere might accuse them of trying to influence the investigation.

In fact, they should just go home, lock the doors, pull down the shades, turn off the lights and have no contact with the outside world until the Republicans announce that they are forever and ever finished investigating them - otherwise, they might possibly encounter someone who could possibly be involved in some investigation at some point and they certainly wouldn't want to be accused of doing anything unethical if they happen to talk to or interact with any of them . . .

In 1993, Republicans bullied Janet Reno into appointing an Independent Counsel

which she did in an effort to prove how impartial and fair she was. And when they ran the first Independent Counsel out, she appointed Ken Starr, a noted Republican partisan, again to show just how fair and impartial this investigation would be. And then when he asked for an expansion of his jurisdiction far beyond the original Whitewater matter, she again said yes because, after all, she had to prove how fair and impartial she was.

We remember how that all worked out . . .

This is a gambit that Democrats fall for time after time. That's exactly what's happening here in this bogus tarmac conversation "outrage."

Democrats - please don't be Charlie Brown and try to kick that footbal again. Keep your eyes on the REAL ball.

Why is Bill Clinton bearing all of the blame for Bogus TarmacGate?

He didn't meet with himself. He met with the Attorney General. On her plane. Unless he stormed the plane and forced her to talk to him, the AG was just as involved in and culpable for this encounter as he was. So why is everyone screaming about him and not saying anything about her role in it?

Let's be clear - I don't think either of them did anything wrong. Not even close. But if this was such a breach of ethics, shouldn't the public official who is actually bound by the ethics laws and rules also be criticized? Shouldn't someone on her staff have protected her from this situation by advising her not to talk with him?

Bill Clinton is a private citizen - why is HE bearing the brunt of all of this?

Could it be because folks know that she did nothing wrong and, by extension, neither did he - but that would screw up the "another example of how corrupt the Clintons supposedly are" narrative? And what a great way to try to intimidate DOJ into going out of its way to hammer Hillary in order to prove how impartial they are (a gambit that only Democrats seem to fall for time after time after time).
