      Next thing you know someone will be inspecting genitals at the public restroom door. The cartoon should have the elastic waist pants pulled out in front with the wearer and the inspector looking downward into the pants.

    Just some thoughts on the 2016 Election

    This is going to be a tough, bloody, outrageous general election. Trump with all his celebrity will continue to garner unprecedented coverage by cable and traditional media. Hillary’s campaign is going to have to be prepared for unconventional attacks. He is going to use Bill Clinton against her. He is going to be insulting and demeaning and run awful ads portraying her as corrupt. In fact, he is going to use Bernie Sander’s own words intimating that she is corrupt and unqualified in an attempt to win over Bernie Independents (who were never going to vote for her in the first place) and to continue to drive her negatives up.

    Trump’s VP pick will not in my opinion be anyone conventional (like a Jeff Sessions) that the media is all obsessing about. It will be a woman (in an attempt to soften his brashness) like Governor Susana Martinez of New Mexico. Woman (check) and Hispanic (check).

    He will shift somewhat his personality when the GE gets going but Trump can only temper himself for a short period. His narcissism will get the better of him. For all the angst you are witnessing from various factions of the Republican party about how awful a president Trump will make. You can bet your bottom dollar the Republicans will all rally around him at the end of this primary which will just boost his ego even more.

    Hillary will have PBO, VP Joe (possibly FLOTUS) and Elizabeth Warren to rally our side but this is going to be an all-out brawl for the White House which is going to be the campaign of all campaigns. Trump is a celebrity idiot and Hillary is a smart politician and yet the media will treat them each as intellectually and professionally equal when absolutely nothing could be farther for the truth.

      I think you are spot on Donna Dem. However, i think il douche will pick another white male like krispy Kreme-puffy. If il douche picks a Hispanic female his Hispanic-hating followers will think he is being “pc” and the start of their beloved hater-in-chief is selling out just to get the female and Hispanic vote.

      I don’t think the narcissist punk is that disciplined to run a successful GE campaign.

      I just hope hillz doesn’t score any own goals.

      plan to post your astute political assessment on my FB page….

    Hong Kong journalists protest at editor’s sacking with blank columns.

    For the fourth consecutive day on Wednesday, some columnists at Hong Kong’s prestigious broadsheet, Ming Pao, left their spaces blank.

    The unusual protest is part of an extraordinary staff revolt at the independently minded newspaper, following last week’s unexpected firing of executive chief editor Keung Kwok-yuen.

    The dismissal was announced on the same day the paper published front page stories linking local tycoons, politicians and celebrities with a law firm at the centre of the Panama Papers leak.

    The newspaper said his sacking was a cost-cutting measure.

    Capt. Kristen Griest, one of the first women to earn the coveted Ranger tab, will once again make history by becoming the Army’s first female infantry officer.

    Griest is expected to graduate from the Maneuver Captain’s Career Course on Thursday and earn the right to wear the distinctive blue infantry cord, officials confirmed to Army Times.

    “Like any other officer wishing to branch-transfer, Capt. Griest applied for an exception to Army policy to transfer from military police to infantry,” said Bob Purtiman, a spokesman for the Maneuver Center of Excellence and Fort Benning, Georgia. “Her transfer was approved by the Department of the Army and she’s now an infantry officer.”

    [Video of Capt Griest speaking to the media is in the accompanying article.]

    good grief this female ‘reporter’ is comparing POTUS to Trump… although she doesn’t call him President Obama, just Barack Obama. Already I’m pissed as Trump’s man is speaking but instead of letting us listen, two cbs reporters are just chatting away trying to impress on us that Trump and POTUS are “alike”.

    As much as I wish DWS were not DNC chair, here I agree with her. Megyn apparently has forgiven Trump for the nasty things he said about her in front of millions of people.

    See video in the article

    MEGYN KELLY (HOST): So this is shaping up, it’s not a done deal yet on either side, but it is shaping up potentially to be a Hillary Clinton versus Donald Trump general election. And Donald Trump believes very much that he is going to put certain blue states in play that have never been in play for Republicans, including New York, potentially Michigan and others. What say you?

    DEBBIE WASSERMAN SCHULTZ: I’d say Donald Trump continues to exist in his fantasy world, and unfortunately the fantasy that he has constructed is one that is incredibly extreme, misogynistic and bigoted. He’s the most extreme candidate that we’ve seen in certainly modern times. And when he goes I think he’ll find into a general election campaign, he will see that the overwhelming majority of Americans do not think that we should ban an entire religion from coming into this country, do not think that we should ship eleven million undocumented immigrants back to their countries, and don’t think that all Mexican immigrants are rapists and drug dealers. So a very different environment.

    KELLY: But he — he didn’t say all. But he may move on those issues once he secures the nomination, as we’ve seen. I don’t know, but we’ve seen so many candidates do that.

    WASSERMAN SCHULTZ: Well he’ll be exposed for the phony he is. The curtain was already pulled back last week by Paul Manafort when he revealed what their plan is. And you know, we are certainly, no matter which one of our incredibly fine candidates ultimately is our nominee, not going to let Donald Trump run from the extremism and misogyny that he has spewed over the course of the last year nor over the course of his entire professional career.

    KELLY: On the woman issue, you know that he has said, look, I made a lot of comments when I was an entertainer, when I was hosting a show and needed to be a provocateur.

    WASSERMAN SCHULTZ: Megyn, he made them on the debate stage about you. He made them on the radio following his debate performances about you. So this is way beyond that he was entertaining. While he was running for president, he has spewed hateful, misogynistic rhetoric that is unacceptable in any forum but certainly coming from a presidential candidate, and the policies are even worse….

    In important news: amk’s jtp had her puppies today. Three. One didn’t make it. I am privy to this news because I asked when they were due, and what the name of the little llapsa apso (or shi-tsu) puppy was. Amk is calling her “Jill” while the rest of the family is squabbling over what to name her, poor soul.

      Thanks sherijr – I heard 30 seconds of Trump after he won the primaries – no word of policy passed his lips – I could not listen again but nothing seems to have changed – even with a teleprompter – his main theme seems to be “I will fix the world”

    Re: Nina Turner’s tweet a few pages back. I thought Democrats and Republicans were having primaries/caucuses to choose their Presidential nominee. If independents want their own candidate to win then they should have their own party. You can’t refuse to support me (by registering independent) and when time comes to elect a nominee you are mad if your candidate is not chosen in my party. Hell this is my party, the DEMOCRATIC party, not the Independent party. You don’t come to my house and smash the dishes if I don’t serve your favorite dish. Sorry we are DEMOCRATS not INDEPENDENTS get off my lawn and go get your own party Jeez
