146. And don't forget the religious extremist on the ticket with him.

Mike Pence is a fanatic would bring us the closest in our history to Sharia law. CHRISTIAN-style Sharia law. Especially since what Kasich reported - about being hit up to be his running mate: that the VP job in a Trump administration would be the most powerful Vice Presidency EVER, because the Vice President would be put in charge of running domestic AND foreign policy. In other words, and this was a quote - the parts of the job "that he doesn't want to do." Oh great. And there's something else that bothers me about that, too: the parts of the job "that he doesn't want to do"???????????" So, Donald, you're applying for a really big important job that has include some parts that you DON'T WANT TO DO?????????????????????? The quote, if I recall correctly, is from one of Trump's sons, who now denies he said it. Figures. From the "apple doesn't fall far from the tree" department.

The "creative destruction" crowd, like Susan Sarandon and others who think that maybe four years of Donald Trump would be worth suffering through to get to critical mass on revolution just completely slay me. They REALLY, SERIOUSLY believe that? How'd their support of Ralph Nader work out for them?

All I can say after watching this circus this morning, is that I'm damn glad this is happening in July, when there are still months left to the campaign and November's still off in the distance, and there's time to recover.

A Trump/Pence win would swiftly become "the gift that keeps on shivving." As in, sticking a shiv straight into our backs. And pulling it out, while twisting. And then plunging it in again.

Sorry about all the ?s and the caps, but that's the volume, pitch, and velocity of my feelings about this. I know what would happen if I applied for a job but said I didn't want to do some of its parts that make up the job. Yeah, I wanna be a reporter, but I don't want to have to schlep out however far it is to cover some story, or pay for gas, or try to find parking, or have to sit around and set up my mic and/or camera, and do the research beforehand, read the handouts at the venue, know who and what it is about. I just want the parts where I'm on camera. Can I have the job? I'm gonna make the broadcast great again. I'd be laughed all the way to the opposite coast.
