Sunday Reads

I don't know why Wikileaks even bothers with its bullshit of trying to influence this election.

It is looking to be a 538-0 Electoral College blowout in favor of Hillary Clinton, with a full month left of the campaign. This country hasn't had one since George Washington.


It is hypocritical for fundies to shit all over Hillary Clinton for not ditching Bill with all of these fundies sanctimonious rhetoric about marriage.

What it is really about is the fundies' opposition to a woman president. They believe women have no business leading over men because they are inferior to men. The reason is because of the allegory of Adam and Eve and how it is all women's fault there is sin in the world.

Oh, oh. Another GOP pundit named Steve Schmidt lays it on the line:

Well, this debate will be like the last debate. You'll see someone who's manifestly unprepared for the duties of the office of President of the United States, who has no idea what he's talking about from a policy perspective, who lacks the requisite dignity required of someone who wishes to be the Head of State of the government of the United States, and someone who lacks the capacity to be the Commander-in-Chief of the most powerful military and the world's most potent nuclear arsenal, that's what you'll see tonight.


And the only question that's still up in the air is how close the Democrats will come to retaking the House Majority. What this exposes, though, is much deeper and it goes to the Republican Party as an institution. This, this candidacy, the magnitude of its disgrace to the country is almost impossible, I think, to articulate. But it has exposed the intellectual rot in the Republican Party. It has exposed at a massive level the hypocrisy, the modern day money changers in the temple like Jerry Falwell Jr. And so, this party, to go forward and to represent a conservative vision for America, has great soul searching to do. And what we've seen and the danger for all of these candidates is over the course of the last year, these, these candidates who have repeatedly put their party ahead of their country, denying what is so obviously clear to anybody who's watching about his complete and total manifest unfitness for this office.
