RenewAmerica explains how every single one of Trump's cabinet choices (except Mattis, it looks like) is some shade of disappointing globalist, Zionist, big-government 4th amendment violator. Article somehow fails to charge crony capitalism or Wall Street appeasement (or maybe they do). Naturally, I'm encouraged, though almost everyone should agree that it's refreshing just to see a chief executive not bound to anyone's expectations. http://www.renewamerica.com/columns/baldwin/161203

Only a fool would dismiss electoral advice from Bill Clinton. As if Huma and the rest of the staff, and Hillary herself, have any political acumen or savvy at all compared to Bill.
I still think yammering on about Trump to a 5 year old is borderline child abuse. It is, but nothing was as despicable as that letter Aaron Sorkin wrote to his daughter (and ex-wife, and Variety). What a putz.
He hasn't been out of the military for 7 years, which is what's required by statute. The last I saw on it said there's a waiver available, Miss M, though CNN can certainly be wrong. Flynn is the perfect fit for Trump re: Syria. http://www.cnn.com/2016/11/11/opinions/trumps-national-security-guru-general-flynn-bergen/
He can pardon Clinton on his way out of office, but he can't pardon himself. I think he probably can, but it would look awful. http://blogs.wsj.com/law/2016/11/03/can-a-president-self-pardon/
Hi, folks, I was just looking at state-by-state US Senate races, and I thought the following interesting enough to observe. - In Alaska, who won the 2010 Republican primary against incumbent Lisa Murkowski, only to lose the election to Murkowski write-in votes, tried again this time as a Libertarian and lost to Murkowski again. The Democrat got 11% and finished fourth behind an independent. - In Louisiana none of the 22 entrants got the necessary 50% of the vote, and the run-off is next month. The vote leader, with 25%, is named John Kennedy, and he's a Republican. David Duke, also listed as a Republican, came in seventh with 3% of the vote. - Kelly Ayotte lost by less than 750 votes out of more than 700,000 cast. Even though I think she'd be a good pick, I can't see the Secretary of Defense not being Mike Flynn. - In New York, based on their relative performances (where Trump got 10% more of the vote than Republican Senate candidate Wendy Long), it looks like around 800,000 people voted Donald Trump/Chuck Schumer.
CT, that's so true, these are the times when I force myself to watch and read the liberal newspeople, because it's so much fun to revel in their discomfort. Captain Hate, belated Happy Birthday! I deprived myself of most of the fun last night, because I was too chicken to watch. I wound up checking the results every hour, sort of expecting the Trump leads to melt away. By the time I went to bed I was still worried, wondering whey Wisconsin wasn't being called despite what looked like a comfortable lead. This morning I was astounded to see that Trump had even carried Pennsylvania! I owe congrats to all the JOM'ers who were on board with Trump from the beginning. It's possible that any Republican could have beaten Hillary, but it's also possible that only Trump was going to be able to get it done. Doesn't matter, no one knows, and I'm just glad I saw the light a few weeks back (this way, maybe you guys will still talk to me). Love seeing the market higher, looking forward to this very special presidency, going to try to catch up with everything I missed.

I never know how I'll react to these big political events, not until it's upon me. This year, apparently, I'm compelled to turn on C-Span, kill the sound, and drink some Two Hearted Ales while cooking a lasagna, doing laundry, and pondering the universe. So I'll be checking out now until tomorrow or at least until much later tonight; fingers crossed, JOM'ers.

Michigan thread started by Trump campaign guy...says he has seen numbers Well, Michael Moore said months ago that Michigan would go Trump, and I'll be happy to congratulate him on his prescience if he turns out to be right. So, if Michigan and Florida both go Trump, I'm pretty sure he won't really need Pennsylvania (which is always a heartbreaker).

A picture of Lady Gagme early in the morning, not the best way to start the day. You're right, sorry about that. To make it worse, it's the first pic I've posted here, which is not auspicious (and I can see I need to learn how to resize them as well). Your bullshit investigations simply failed.. I liked you better the other day when you responded to someone with "Dude, I'm a troll. Let me do my troll thing". Actually, I lol'ed at that line, so thanks.

But Porchlight, I was wrong - it's stock futures that are slightly lower, the market doesn't open for another half hour (I guess I'm still not used to the clocks changing the other day).

Stocks turn lower after opening flat. I'd love to see the market sharply lower today and tomorrow, as it would mean a) Trump has won, and b) buying opportunity. Wall Street has no interest in the long game, but ultimately Trump is a whole lot better for profits than Hillary.

In keeping with the topic of this thread: Wait, I need to know which MyPillow firmness option I should choose. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0148UVXDA/ref=twister_B0148UVLN2?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1

I am now a New England Patriots fan (gulp). That's going too far, Porch. I can see my polling place from my bedroom window (it's on the corner). Big line out the door, it's a day off for me so I'll wander over there in a couple of hours. Good luck, JOM, and happy election day!

Dixville Notch went for Hillary, four to two (and then one each for Gary Johnson and Mitt Romney). Oh, well, unless I'm mistaken they usually get it wrong anyway.

Pence is always good, definitely a savvy pick for the ticket.

Hey, it's election day, JOM (Pence just reminded me).

Is that Nugent? Camera angle I'm looking at is from way out in center field or something.

Whoever is speaking now in Grand Rapids, as warm-up for DT, is really full of beans, he's mentioned everything from china-gate (when Hillary took all the dishes from the White House) to Vince Foster to the Arkansas commodity bonanza (which this guy calls "a stock she bought"). Oops, he's done, now someone else (not introduced) is playing electric guitar as background for his pro-Trump comments.

They'll say you stupid, stupid Trump voters, this is all your fault. I'd so much rather hear the we-told-you-so's from the vindicated AlwaysTrump'er than the flabbergasted NeverTrump'ers. Either way, it's not helpful, just makes things worse.

Instead of using GOPe and uniparty would it be acceptable to simply say party leadership? Oh, thank goodness, I thought GOPe meant anyone who didn't support Trump from the beginning, or who considers something he's said to be objectionable, or who doesn't agree with 100% of his policy views. We're sure that's not the definition, right?

You said it at least three times, hrtshpdbox. Nope, said it once, apologized once. Pretty sure I've been called worse here, too, and multiple times with no apology. Let's hope Trump wins, so that we're not left to rehash crap like this for four years.

You are not enthusiastic of the nominee Wait, you have to be a true believer or else don't vote for him? He can't just be the lesser of two evils? We have to agree with his big gov fixes and trade tariffs? Ouch.
