Every election is the most important one.

RE: what Johnny K said.

Yeah, I feel like BLM had a huge amount to do with the loss. There were many factors, obviously, including Russian meddling (although I suspect it in BLM), but the attacks on both HRC and BS were not matched by attacks on the Republicans. There was constant equivocating (HRC is just as bad as Trump) and when the bullets flew in Dallas (and elsewhere) and there was no major statement from the BLM leadership about how wrong that was, I'm sure that moved white votes 1 or 2% to the Right and that's all it took. Black lives matter. BLM, however, is not an organization I'm fond of. To say this is heresy, but it is also the fucking truth.

Speaking of truth, as in Truthers…Our President continues to act bonkers. What a loser. Sad!

Apparently the RAND Corp is also "fake news". I mean, people at redstate,com are glad of the transgender ban in the military (announced by coup-like tweets), b/c they're sure it affects military readiness, incurs high costs. So, you know, their feels must be truthy, right?

Here's the RAND study: http://www.rand.org/pubs/research_reports/RR1530.html

Perfect public face for the Trump administration.

Mike Huckabee wants to repeal the 17th Amendment, and return selection of Senators to the state legislatures. How delightfully self-serving and undemocratic. The people don't like our platforms, let's reduce the influence of the people.

Welcome to decades of gerrymandering and voter ID laws (I mean voter suppression -- show me 10 cases of voter fraud).

This place is getting more like 17th century France all the time. It won't be pretty when the guillotines get set up.

Dammit. 18th century France. My mind is going.

Hey, any time period that recognized and valued the Enlightenment would be an improvement.

Scaramucci is out as WH Communications Director. Five day reign. Five too many.

He'll be replaced by Martin Shkrelli.

And I thought he was perfect for the job in Trump's eyes, being a brash New Yorker like himself. My bet is that John Barron takes over.

Why do they need a Communications Director? Trump uses Twitter, and the press briefings are just suspiciously gung ho letters from nine-year-olds praising Trump.

If you or anyone you know reads or has books from Regnery Publishing, please read this (http://www.motherjones.com/politics/2017/07/alt-right-william-regnery-richard-spencer/) and back away slowly from the books.

Any time I see the name Richard Spencer I ponder this conundrum and its counterpoint.
