Quote Of The Day

From Bill Maher, who had some advise for Hillary Clinton (emphasis mine):
I love Bernie, but we must assume Hillary is going to be the nominee, and after witnessing the gruesome hundred car pile-up that is the Republican field, I for one am not going to stand idly by and let Hillary blow this thing, and yes, the situation is dire.

Her positives are in free fall with only 37 percent of Americans now viewing Hillary favorably, and 57 percent say she's not trustworthy. If an election were held today, she'd lose key battleground states to Scott Walker, a man who looks like a drunk in a silent movie who's just been punched by mistake.

  1. I do not believe Hillary Clinton is the inevitable nominee. I do believe that if everyone who is saying they'd support Sen. Sanders if they thought "he really had a chance" would actually support him, he could be our next president.

    1. The thing is, he really does have a chance!

    Even though I am supporting Sen. Sanders, I will be voting for the candidate that ends up being the democratic nominee. We can not allow our disappointment to keep us from voting if our favorite candidate doesn't win the nomination. This unwillingness to compromise, and voter apathy are exactly what caused us to have our asses handed to us in the last two midterm elections. We can NOT allow this to continue.

    At this time, ANY democrat is a far better choice than any of the people the republican party is fielding. We can force whichever democrat that is nominated to try and do what we want them to do after they are elected, but we have to make sure they are elected first.

    We cannot allow the party to be divided. If we don't stand together and back the eventual nominee, we will lose the White House. That is a prospect that should give us all nightmares.

  7. Maher's "If the election were held today" is a misnomer. It omits the dynamic progression of events leading up to an actual election such as people paying attention to who is going to be the next president, political party conventions and so on. Most people outside Wisconsin and the Midwest have only a vague notion of who Scott Walker is. 'If the election were held today' is like saying 30 seconds after the first play after kick-off in football: Well, if the game is over at this instant the Bears win because they gained three yards. No matter that the score is zero to zero, and the opposing offense has not taken the field yet. Nonsense. And since when do August polls taken the year before Election Day predict anything? I'm voting for Bernie, but this has nothing to do with polls with no predictive power.

    1. Both you and Bernie Starzewski speak the truth. In August 2007, many favored the Senator from Illinois, but said "A black guy named Barack Hussein Obama could never be elected president."

      But his take on Walker is spot-on. Scotty's getting paler and dopier-looking by the day

  8. Vote your values not some BS theoretical strategy. You can always hold your nose and vote for Hil later if it comes to that.

  9. Does anyone know the background of the inspectors general et al. who are making these accusations against Hillary? Are they leftover Bush Administration appointees who "burrowed-in" for just such an occasion as this?
