Hillary was good enough

and Trump won't have lost any of the people who are currently supporting him. 

She may have won some of the undecided. He won't have.

OK Guys read E-Ghazi

that's the title of a article/blog in Daily kos by Armando.

The FBI has released a report on Hillary's email "scandal". Armando goes through it point by point and comments.

If you're going to comment read that first. I haven't included a link- it's easy enough to go to Daily kos and I'm not sure about the propriety of linking to other paddlers in the Internet puddle.

It's on the opening page, on the right a few clicks down  under recommended

Read it and draw your own conclusions.

I was pleased.


Houston, we've got a problem

On August 1 we knew all we were going to know about Trump and Hillary. And she had a comfortable lead.And Roger Ailes was running Fox.

On September 1 we knew the same things,  538 showed her lead had dropped to an uncomfortable level. And Roger Ailes  had fully joined the Trump team

Tim and Bernie's warnings

Turning and turning in the widening gyre

The falcon cannot hear the falconer;

Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold;

Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world,

The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere

The ceremony of innocence is drowned.

The best lack all conviction, while the worst

Are full of passionate intensity.

Letter to the Editor

A Home run

A good mix of nuts& bolts and aspirations.

I won't go down the path of whether it would have been better with Bernie. What should concern us is whether she wants  what we want her to want.

And whether we think she can get it.

Well with respect to the second, probably not.  Probably no one  could. But at least as she leaves the starting gate tonight she's heading in the right direction.

It was more than "good enough" it was pretty darn good. If you'll pardon the intense language. 

Just a link

tis not as deep as a well

nor as wide as a church door  but tis enough, twill do*

Night two  twill do.

As you think of Bill's reminiscence ,right now, you're smiling.   

Well at least I am. So that'll have to do. Do you remember anything about last week that makes you smile? Does "lock her up" do that? Or do you feel vaguely dirty? As if you see someone being beaten up, who deserved it. But enough already.

Day 1 was a success!

Despite where we started from, where we ended was quite OK.I'll take it !

Kaine,Catholicism and grammatical tricks

I was started down this path by the juxtaposition of two OGD links included  in  Michael's Freak Out Thread :

 Al Franken's MSNBC interview and a  Hillary ad . Franken described Kaine as a "progressive Catholic" ; the ad purported to show the children listening to Trump's tasteless insults to women who'd  outraged him by expecting  him to answer questions.

Those damn emails

 FBI director Comey contributed to Obama’s opponents in each of his  elections:  August 2008, $2,300 to John McCain ; 2012 ,$5000 ( the maximum )to Mitt Romney .Also $2,500 to Susan Brooks (Ind.), Brooks went on to win a House seat.
