Doesn't Bill Ayers have anything better to do than use his old bag of tricks to try to make conservatives look like the crazies?

Kevlar Kid, I worked on the NYCE and traded both NY and London coffee back in the 70's. Crazy stuff. Peet's Coffee is privately held.

Eradicating "catch and release" laws, of course, can be the objective after election day.

From what I'd read, the caravan won't reach the border by election day, so Trump doesn't have to do anything about it except continue to decry it.

If only Trump had said, "this affront to civilization can not stand, we can never truly be friends with a nation whose society condones this type of barbarism, Saudi Arabia is dead to us!", why then we'd have a President we could truly be proud of, then we could hold our heads high. Trump needs to understand it's not the cover-up, it's the crime; any of our moral betters, the Democrats, would be arranging with Iran right now to help us bomb Riyadh, that's the ticket.

Porch, thanks for looking at those districts; I had figured there would be a dearth of actual polling there. I'd like it if election day was today - I think the GOP is in good shape. But there's two very long weeks to go, so lots of time to worry...

The publicity surrounding this "caravan" will help voters realize just how illogical and untenable catch-and-release policy is. Once again, Dems lose.

This is the most important election of our lifetimes (and I've only heard that during every single election I've ever seen), so it's imperative that Soros take one for the troops, blow himself up and leave a trail of evidence pointing to the RNC. I mean, it could happen, right? As of this morning the RCP House analysis has 205 seats for the Dems, 200 for the GOP, and 30 TCTC (if TCTC is not a known acronym, I'm patenting it). So, Dems need to win 13 of those 30 seats to win control of the House. Do I think they will? Nope, no way, I don't think so.

In the "we're not the only crazy people on the planet these days" department is news that UK pizzas will have a government-mandated maximum caloric content. No word yet on whether an actual nanny will show up to smack the hand of someone reaching for a second slice. https://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2018/10/11/pizzas-must-shrink-lose-toppings-government-anti-obesity-plan/

Which one said that, Hillary, or Christianne Amonpour? I think it's Jews who Amanpour refuses to be civil with.

CH, that Ace poster JackStraw needs to come over here; I think I could figure out what he's talking about if I read him daily for a couple of years. Right now, I'm completely stumped by the news that Ivanka and Jared's good friend Dasha Zhukova lives in the NYC mansion belonging to her ex-husband Roman Abramovich, a former associate of Manafort, which was seized yesterday by the FBI. Not sure I understand how that can be a good thing for Trump, but I'm more of a 1D checkers player (chess is hard). https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-6252533/US-seize-Russian-oligarch-Deripaskas-42-5million-New-York-mansion-hes-sanctioned-bribery.html

How he hasn't hastily seemed to age... I read your first iteration a few times, thinking "huh?". Yep, Trump looks and sounds great, he completely breaks the mold. Twelve more years, twelve more years!

I think it's less than 50-50 that the Dems take the house. There's not enough polling done, and the polls that are done can't be trusted. Republicans are much more reliable midterm voters than Dems. Blacks are feeling less beholden to the Dems than they have in 75 years. Trump will be on the stump almost daily, and that's powerful. I'll guess right now and bookmark this so that I can (at least in my dreams) come back to exalt in the glory - Dems gain 6 House seats, drop 2 Senate seats.

Here's a good "meme history" on 4D Chess Trump which, I did not know, seems to have originated in Dilbert three years ago: https://knowyourmeme.com/memes/trump-is-playing-4d-chess I'm not sure Trump made any 4D moves to get his nominee through, but he sure comes out a winner in all this. But for standing firm when he needed to, and for showing good discretion in letting the process play out when he needed to do that.

It must be pretty awful to be a Dem right now; just a year ago, things looked pretty good for them. Rex Tillerson was trying to deny he'd called Trump a moron. Everything looked aces with Mueller's investigation, with Manafort about to be indicted and Papadopolous about to plead guilty. A year ago today Trump's approval average at RCP was 39.2%. Dems, a year ago, could imagine the biggest and bluest of waves at election 2018. I'd feel bad for the Dems if I could stop laughing.
