Scott and I took issue with his post content and he called us big meanies.

I know from people around me that "it's all Trump's fault" fatigue sets in and you move on.

....speaking of the disaster that, thankfully, never was, more whining....

We knew from an excerpt of her book leaked last week that Hillary Clinton wasn't particularly thrilled with the campaign Bernie Sanders ran against her. But in an interview released Tuesday, she really picked Sanders apart — at length.

Talking to the former Obama aides who now run the popular “Pod Save America” podcast, Clinton roundly denounced and dismissed not just Sanders's campaign but basically his entire political ethos, suggesting it's overly simplistic and awful for the Democratic Party. And at a time when Sanders's “Medicare for all” proposal just happens to be catching fire among top Democrats, it's difficult not to read this as Clinton's effort to arrest the party's tilting toward Sanders.

On the podcast, Clinton basically suggested that Sanders had no 2016 strategy except to promise impractical, more extreme things than she did:

What Happened To "What Happened": Amazon Slashes Hillary's Book Price 40% Before It Hits Shelves

Nah, it's up there #1 on Amazon non-fiction bestsellers. The book tour appears to be going well. She bugged out her eyes at Matt Lauer this morning when he asked her something about people not liking her personality. Gonna be on Anderson Cooper tonight. He won't ask her such offensive questions.

I cannot believe she actually writes in her book about being in junior high and having her cankles made fun of. That woman never lets anything go. At least she told us she's better than everybody else anyway.

She comes off as psychotic.

The fatigue factor must have got him. Vuelta's over and he stopped posting.

Either that or he is reading quadfocals book and is so overcome with emotion that he spends most of the day crying.

This f'ing State is becoming more backwards by the second.

BERKELEY — In this cradle of the free speech movement, from the very campus where the First Amendment has been tested time and again, a new poll from UC Berkeley shows California voters are split over the delicate question of whether white nationalist groups should be allowed to demonstrate.

Forty-six percent of California voters say we’ve gone too far in allowing white nationalists to demonstrate while 43 percent say the rallies should not be restricted and 11 percent had no opinion.

And Democrats, especially, appear to be grappling with the complex issue in deep blue California.

In the wake of violent protests from Charlottesville to Berkeley, more than half, a full 53 percent of California’s Democratic voters, believe we have gone too far in allowing those demonstrations. Some 50 percent of California Republicans, meanwhile, believe the right to demonstrate should not be restricted, compared with 39 percent of Democrats.


I THOUGHT.... the right to protest and demonstrate was sacrosanct to lefties. Only when the rhetoric is agreed with apparently.

I think we should erect a huge poll to ask the politik denizens their opinion as to the lamp post or shade question.
