With the daily barrage of Trump mistakes .....

How many have had a friend, coworker, family member, acquaintance, anyone, ... admit that voting for Trump was a mistake.

I will start, let's shoot for a small number, 10.

OK, we have 10 left to go.

Some data for your anti-California repubs

Population of CA - 39,000,000 (estimate)
Population of Wyoming - 600,000

CA Electoral Votes - 55
Wyoming EVs - 3

CA EV to Population ratio 1 to 709,091 (1 09,091 - even DU is laughing at me)
WYO EV to Pop ratio 1:200,000

If CA had an equal (democratic) representation to Wyo, we would have 195 Electoral Votes.

Point being, something needs to be done. Either abolish the EV OR add Reps.

Found on FB - likely the best post ever on FB

I listened as they called my President a Muslim.
I listened as they called him and his family a pack of monkeys.
I listened as they said he wasn't born here.
I watched as they blocked every single path to progress that they could.
I saw the pictures of him as Hitler.
I watched them shut down the government and hurt the entire nation twice.
I watched them turn their backs on every opportunity to open worthwhile dialog.
I watched them say that they would not even listen to any choice for Supreme Court no matter who the nominee was.
I listened as they openly said that they will oppose him at every turn.
I watched as they did just that.
I listened.
I watched.
I paid attention.
Now, I'm being called on to be tolerant.
To move forward.
To denounce protesters.
To "Get over it."
To accept this...
I will not.
I will do my part to make sure this great American mistake becomes the embarrassing footnote of our history that it deserves to be.
I will do this as quickly as possible every chance I get.
I will do my part to limit the damage that this man can do to my country.
I will watch his every move and point out every single mistake and misdeed in a loud and proud voice.
I will let you know in a loud voice every time this man backs away from a promise he made to them.
Them. The people who voted for him.
The ones who sold their souls and prayed for him to win.
I will do this so that they never forget.
And they will hear me.
They will see it in my eyes when I look at them.
They will hear it in my voice when I talk to them.
They will know that I know who they are.
They will know that I know what they are.
Do not call for my tolerance. I've tolerated all I can.
Now it's their turn to tolerate ridicule.
Be aware, make no mistake about it, every single thing that goes wrong in our country from this day
forward is now Trump's fault just as much as they thought it was Obama's.
I find it unreasonable for them to expect from me what they were entirely unwilling to give."

Another sign the election is over

It didn't happen in 2012 and it was a bit later in 2008.

Watch the commentators on MSNBC and CNN. They are done with the Trump pundits.

The CNN panel especially King, let Conway drone on. He became almost uninterested.

That look you get when you could care less what the other person was saying. At that point you have zero interest in what the other person is saying thus no ability to influence.

Nicole Wallace is the biggest HRC defender

I think HRC has her vote. Nicole also said if they, her included, gave Pence style points for looking more Presidential then HRC should get the same benefit.

In football a sometime effective strategy is to blitz

Downside to doing is that it leaves you vulnerable to a counter attack. To be effective a blitz needs to be well disguised, and performed by an outstanding performer. It also works better against an unexperienced quarterback

Trump just telegraphed his blitz, mistake one, he is a poor performer, mistake two, and he tried it against an experienced politician, mistake three.

Hillary is going to expose him, and repeatedly score easy points.

How many truly believe that Republican Reps would be bailing on Trump if this was a close race?

They can try all they want to pretend they have morals, they will fool their own supporters.

But I have a hard time believing the majority of Americans will fall for the B.S.

Now many will be forced to cut the losses and rely on the base for reelection which will work well for most House Seats, (Chaffetz- Asshat Utah) but this will have a lose/lose impact on Reps in close Senate races. They will either take heat for not pulling the endorsement or take heat from the Tea Baggers.

Enjoy the steaming sack of shit pubbies.

We are missing another career crashing

Billy Bush is screwed, he comes across as a wimpy frat boy enabler!

A nice twofer!

Remember the long game - Kaine and Obama strategy

Kaine during the debate and Obama a few months ago directly tied Trump to Pence and Republican leadership. In both cases the Republicans refused to condemn or disavow Trump.

It is a great plan, not short term style points, the objective is to make every Republican, in every race, carry the stench of Trump.
