So. I suppose I could say that 227 years is a pretty good run, historically-speaking. We all know what’s coming and there’s no point in scapegoating and relitigating; the fact of the matter is that one uniquely dangerous person got... Continue reading

Trump supporter offers to give a discount on horse semen in exchange for a Trump vote. Yes, that's illegal vote buying but more to the point it's also so very, very 2016 Election. Also, Brisco County, Jr would never have... Continue reading

I've done my bit. Now here's hoping we can get through the day/week/month/year without any political violence. I don't have no fancy map nor nothin' but I'll say Clinton wins with 325ish EVs but 350 isn't impossible. Not sure about... Continue reading

Maria - I think I first heard it last Spring or early Summer. I hope the newsroom springs a leak or two just for funsies. USA - Yeah, the paper has been looking more and more like the Supermarket Shopper: physically small and lacking substance (although with fewer ads). It's privately owned and thus we don't know what its finances are like but I think it might be in severe financial trouble. I wouldn't be surprised if it goes up for sale before too long. .

I saw this coming: Last night, the 50th annual Country Music Association Awards saw Beyoncé join The Dixie Chicks for a rousing performance of “Daddy Lessons,” off of the former’s smash-hit album Lemonade. By all accounts, the performance was one... Continue reading

The leftist purity brigade assures me that Hillary is the real threat, or that a Trump win will bring on the Great Proletarian Revolution (Susan Sarandon represent!), so, really, are you not being a bit silly? .

I'm sure they will be punished appropriately. <--very much sarcasm. Sorry. Clinton is going to win both the popular vote and the electoral vote next Tuesday. But the rot is too far advanced now for simple laws and norms to fix it. I hope I'm projecting and am completely wrong. .

Hillary Clinton is on track to win more than 300 electoral votes and that's unlikely to change over the next week. The only way Clinton loses at this point is 1) massive and obvious vote fraud (this could possibly set... Continue reading
