Full Court Press

This is what happens when everyone’s on the same page. President Obama:

First Lady Michelle Obama:

And to top off the night, Secretary Clinton:

This was a great day.


He Didn’t See That Coming

Michelle Obama opened up on Trumplethinskin with every round from every weapon in the armory, then poured gas on the embers, then dug a hole and buried the ashes, then dropped a bomb on the filled-in hole.

There may have never been a more deserving target. AND we still have three weeks to go.

I’m going to need a bigger popcorn bucket.

Save The Day – VOTE!

Gotta get this done, folks.

Truth-telling and Bypassing the Village

President Obama hit the campaign trail yesterday, laying out the case for Hillary Clinton in Philadelphia.  His entry into the campaign does two things: it gives Clinton an active ally who, at 58% approval, has more popularity than either candidate; it also forces the Village to either truthfully cover the Democratic side of the campaign or watch as President Obama goes right around them as he has had to do so many times before.

Business is about to pick up…

Begins The Reckoning

I thought that the speech Hillary Clinton gave at the DNC was the speech of her life. It WAS.  This IS:

With this speech, Hillary Clinton did what the mainstream press should have done over a year ago – using ACCURATE words from Donald Trump’s own mouth, from his campaign staff’s mouths, and from his supporters’ mouths, to absolutely annihilate the white nationalist dumpster fire that is the GOP run for the presidency. I understand that the fainting couch market is at an all-time high, pearls are being clutched so hard they’re being crushed into dust, and media Villagers have already pre-assumed the position (flat on their backs hoping for a belly rub but fearing a kick from the Right instead).

It is in a moment such as this that one gets the opportunity to see just how compliant, how cowed, how COMPLICIT the remnants of our Fourth Estate really are, to the extent that simply repeating, verbatim, actual quotes from a political opponent turns into the greatest scandal ever (since the last one, and only until the next one). Make no mistake about it, when Secretary Clinton wins this election, much like President Obama before her, she will have beaten both the GOP AND THE PRESS.
