  1. He’s 70 years old.

    Instead of the Sniveling Coward, we should call him the Shriveling Coward.

  2. According to Ivana, his first wife, he had that problem in his mid-forties.

  3. In the meandering speech on Thursday in Reno, Clinton spent the entire time not talking about jobs, the economy, trade deals, national security, or any of the issues that matter. She instead spent an entire Thursday in August just months—weeks, really—before the election talking about her new theories about the vast “alt-right” wing conspiracy.

    The collaborators continue to harp the Right’s choice, hoping for their share of 72 virgins, transgendered and anatomically corrected.

  14. BROOKFIELD, Wis. — For a small group of undecided voters here, the presidential choices this year are bleak: Hillary Clinton is a “liar” with a lifetime of political skullduggery and a ruthless agenda for power, while Donald Trump is your “drunk uncle” who can’t be trusted to listen even to the good advice he’s paying for.

    Describing the election as a cesspool, 12 swing voters participating in a focus group Thursday in this battleground state were deeply negative about both candidates, starkly describing their choice this year as one between a candidate they loathe (Clinton) and one they fear (Trump).

  17. OT. Last night about 945pm I got “the call” from U of P hospital to rush down for my lung transplant. My wife and I grabbed my go-bag and by 1010 we were in emergency. They ran us up to pre transplant, took blood, I signed all kinds of papers, some friends showed up then we waited. At 2 am the surgeon came in and the operation was off. Seems the lungs had traces of pneumonia and he can’t do the transplant. So by 4am we were back home. Now I’m back to waiting. We were disappointed because as I type this I had hoped to be doped up in recovery ICU with some decent breathers. Hopefully next time.

  21. For the next four years Cruz and his fanboys are going to be hoping Trump fails to make America great again, and as now actively working to achieve the failure of America, just to promote himself to be president. Because he’s greater than America.

  23. It is Trump who has put his ego before country and party. Probably before God, too. And for Trumpies to call people “fanboys” is just priceless.

    Kevin M (25bbee)

  24. @Steve Malynn:He was the only candidate who could lose to Hillary, and he will.

    People keep saying this, and they never have a shred of evidence.

    The media and the government are actively working to elect Hillary. The reason Trump got the nomination is because he is a celebrity and the media did not get to define him for the voters. They still lie about everything Trump says whenever they get the chance, but once in a while Trump gets to tell his own lies on his own behalf.

    The other 16-17 are not celebrities and LIV know only what the media tells them. Did we just forget 2012 already? Remember the “war on women”? That Mitt Romney, a liberal Republican from a liberal state, was framed as anti-woman?

    Anyone who thinks anyone else who ran would have been doing better against Hillary than Trump is delusional.

    LBascom (5f00e2) — 8/26/2016 @ 9:43 am

    Speaking as a Cruz fan (I don’t know of people who worship Cruz the way they do Trump), I don’t think Trump is capable of “making America great again.” I think he has just as much a chance of accomplishing that as Hillary does, which is to say NONE.

    You sound like a Democrat in 2009 slamming Rush Limbaugh for saying of Obama “I hope he fails.”

    L.N. Smithee (b84cf6)

  31. TRUMP: “I don’t think it’s a softening. I’ve had people say it’s a hardening”

  32. Thanks for your well wishes guys, they’re appreciated. The surgeon said this is not as unusual as one would expect. When a donor hospital announces donor organs are coming that meet the general specifications all the surgeons, anesthesiologists, nurses, staff and recipient rush to receive. Only after they arrive are they thoroughly inspected by the transplant surgeon who determines their quality for use. Hopefully next time.

    At this point with Trump I listen to nothing and read here to see what new hell is being unleashed on the American people. That’s from both camps, by the way. I’m already flicking off Hillary! ads that are running here in Philly about every 9 seconds. First of all, just her voice irritates me secondly, they are all bleeding liberal ads that make it hard for me to swallow and since I already have a hard time breathing I’m not up to it.

    Rev. Hoagie® (785e38)

  33. In that case, Rev H, may your transplant come quickly and heal completely, so you can yell at the TV ads as much as you want.

    kishnevi (870883)

  34. Of course Hillary Clinton always lies, even when she’d probably have a good argument with the truth.

    According to Hillary Clinton:

    He says that children born in America to undocumented parents are, quote, “anchor babies” and should be deported.

    Millions of them.

    When did he say that? If he ever hinted at that, is that still his position?

    Sammy Finkelman (7a51c2)

  35. “I hope he fails”

    Obama has failed, and he needed no help.

    But is his failure a perception or a fact.

    In terms of liberals in high places, he’s a raving success, a surprisingly good start on the way to some socialistic paradigm with the elites ruling by remote control. Generations of blacks are brainwashed with the slavery/dependency/reparations meme waiting for the day some great “black hope” would make it all good again… like Obama.

    Millions of illegals and middle eastern imports beholden to Dems will be given amnesty and empowered to vote.

    The Supremes will tilt left, the EPA will treat the entire country like California, a 1% GDP will be considered vibrant, and the GOP can simply wait for a better candidate to come along as it struggles to hold Congress.

    If however you have Conservative values, the game is almost over. What a stunning success the Obama Trojan Horse has been.

    Who will be left to vote GOP in victorious numbers when and if a good candidate does come along?

  36. I recently noticed a panty line and a “puff” of panty above it on Hillary’s! ample behind. It kinda looked like Depends to me but it was just a flash as my eyes glazed over and I could feel my body begin to turn to stone so I immediately looked away. Probably nothing and I don’t want to start some rumor. Just sayin’.

  37. In these times, Depend-ency would be seen as a mark of authenticity to be exploited into cutting into the lead Trump has with “mature” Americans.

    urbanleftbehind (5eecdb)

  38. The odd thing is with the complete and undeniable bias of the media I really can’t even believe the poll. I mean, if Trump were ahead by 110 points do you really think MSNBC would talk about it?

  40. In the first eight comments, three of them are, predictably, from hatefulfeet. Indeed, eight of the first 39 comments are from the same person.

    hatefulfeet felt obliged to communicate to everyone who reads here that hatefulfeet doesn’t like Hillary Clinton, which was not the subject of the post. hatefulfeet felt obliged to throw in two more comments attacking Ted Cruz and his wife.

    There is no substance to any of these comments. There is nothing but a repetition of these same shallow attacks, made in babytalk.

    hatefulfeet apparently has in common with both Trump and Hillary the quality of total shamelessness. I’m sick to death of all three of them, but at least Trump and Hillary don’t personally waste bandwidth here on this blog feces- and urine-obsessed babytalk.

    This blog belongs to its proprietor, and no one else, certainly including me, has any right to make or enforce rules for the commenting community. We don’t get to vote each other off the island.

    But for the love of whatever you love, I implore you, hatefulfeet: Please shut up. Please be a decent human being instead of an annoyance. If you have any real thoughts, put them into adult English and share them; but if you have nothing but this nonsense, please stop wasting my time, everyone’s time, by posting it here.

  42. Smithee. The only people saying anyone worships Trump is Cruz fanboys, and then only because of embarrassed a$$ covering because Beck thinks he is the anointed one. Saying people worship Trump is just rhetorical BS that just makes you look stupid.

    LBascom (5f00e2)

  43. I think the polls are doubly unreliable. There is certainly a large number of people who intend to vote for Trump but are ashamed to admit it. But I think there is a large number of people who are ashamed to admit they will vote for Hillary the crook.

    And before November 8 there is no way of knowing what the real number is.

    I do think the media would prefer polls showing a close race. Higher ratings and a narrative to persuade progs that they can not afford to vote for the Greens.

    My own thinking has evolved a little. If Florida seems to be close race (close here defined as polls showing a margin of 10% or less, quite probable IMO), I will vote for Trump. Not for anything Trump has done or said.I just can’t take more of the Clintons. If not close, I will probably write in Cruz. I see no sense in voting for LP candidates who are not libertarian.

    Speaking of time, Beldar:

    A traveling salesman noticed a farmer in a freshly plowed field. The farmer was carrying a large pig in his arms which squirmed as he fussed with a bandage on one of the pigs legs.

    Curious, the salesman approached the farmer and inquired about the pig.

    Farmer: He got too close to some machinery and tore up his leg. the doc bandaged him up and I took it upon myself to indulge him by carrying him everyplace he would normaly go; to the trough, the corn bin, the pen, the fence where the mushrooms grow best, and even this here field.

    Salesmen: Wow! doesn’t that take a lot of time?

    Farmer: Time? what’s time to a pig?

  48. Well, one thing I have learned is that there are some people posting here who are decent and consistent.

    Others who project terms like “weird” and “pervy” onto others, in a dictionary example of irony.

    No matter how many times trolls can claim otherwise, Trump keeps making simple mistakes that alienate the people he needs to vote for him. No amount of calling more credible candidates juvenile names changes that.

    I keep waiting for the next stupid thing for Trump to say.

    I respect the heck out of Trump supporters who don’t act like bizarre and angry jackwagons. Weirdos and haters, not so much.

    The important point in this thread—much more important than this awful race between two awful candidates—is Hoagie’s health. Period.

  51. Scott is the head of the Rebuilding America Now PAC, which—in conjunction with pollsters from On Message, Inc.—conducted a battleground survey in the state of Ohio. The survey of 600 likely voters from August 13 to August 17, with a margin of error of 4 percent, shows Trump tied with Clinton at 45 percent apiece with 10 percent undecided in a two-way race. In the four-way race with Libertarian Gary Johnson and Green Party candidate Jill Stein included, Trump and Clinton are still tied at 42 percent, while Johnson gets 8 percent and Stein just 2 percent—with 6 percent undecided.

    But more importantly, pollster Wes Anderson of On Message told Breitbart News in a brief phone interview on Thursday that Trump is surging with independents far ahead of Hillary Clinton. In fact, the data shows that Trump is winning 53 percent of independents, while Clinton is just getting 33 percent of independents—with 15 percent undecided. That is a 20-point advantage for Trump.

    #nevertrump laments their being demographically insignificant. Which fact they interpret signifies them ‘special’ moral and ideological status.

In my neighborhood there is one Hillary! sign up and only four Trump signs. I assume nobody on either side wants their house TP’d.

    Among Ohio voters likely to cast ballots in November’s presidential election, 43% currently support Clinton and 39% back Trump. Another 10% intend to vote for Libertarian Gary Johnson, who will appear as an independent on the ballot, and less than one percent are supporting Jill Stein of the Green Party. Another 8% are undecided.

    Trump does almost as well as Clinton in getting the backing of fellow partisans, with 83% of Republicans supporting their party’s nominee and 88% of Democrats backing their standard bearer. Independents are evenly split at 35% for Trump and 35% for Clinton, with 20% supporting Johnson.

    One important thing different from Romney vs Obama is that now Obama has had 4 more years, and the country and economy is circling the drain. All the Obama promises have failed and wrought havoc, and I think something like 79% of voters say the country is headed in the wrong direction.

    On top of this, “they/we” are sick to death of the “professional politician”.

    So I think this — in spite of the ham handed remarks Trump makes — could very well defeat Hillary, who continues her crime syndicate unabated and undeterred, it would seem.

    IMHO, there are a number of truly significant factors in place that could defeat the Dems this time.

    And if NOT this time, then I truly don’t know.

    The context of the polling re “wrong direction” has to do with traditional American values and how they’ve been eroded especially during the Obama years. So the notion of “socialism” would be part of the “wrong track” not the correct one.

    Trumpian absurdity. If 79% of Americans thought “right direction” was traditional American values, the Progs would be an impotent minority.

    Seems the lungs had traces of pneumonia and he can’t do the transplant.

    I don’t want to say anything about whether some other course of action was good or bad, but I think it’s not considered acceptable to do a transplant in such a case because every person who gets a transplant gets administered anti-rejection drugs, which means drugs that depress the immune system, and so they wouldn’t want to do a transplant if the lung is infected even if in normal circumstances that infection could be taken care of easily.

Somebody should go and check, if it is possible to find out, whether some key individual or individuals at the Food and Drug Administration, which somewhat unexpectedly rejected the application of a competitor to the Epi-Pen – in fact there was a possibility of two competitors or aybe it is that one company taht was manufacturing it dropped out – has any direct or indiect connections to Bill or Hillary Clinton.

    Mylan Pharmaceuticals, manufacturers of the Epi-Pen, contributed at least $250,000 to the Clinton Foundation and the CEO is the daughter of West Virginia Senator Joe Manchin.

    Any contribution may be just the tip of the iceberg of a connection. Perhaps Hillary Clinton is herself using the Epi-Pen for an off label use. (thyroid hormone?)

  96. ‘Democratic Coalition-Building Is the True Objective How will this policy vision be implemented? The task-force report speaks about the “convening power” of the federal government to coordinate state and local governments, foundations, and non-governmental organizations. Indeed, activist groups are at the center of Obama’s “integration” strategy. Administration documents endorse an array of left-wing groups to assist “integration,” including: the National Partnership for New Americans (NPNA), Illinois Coalition for Immigrant and Refugee Rights (ICIRR), New York Immigration Coalition (NYIC), CASA de Maryland, and the Coalition for Humane Immigrant Rights of Los Angeles (CHIRLA). The record of these radical groups suggests that at heart the Democratic strategy for “integration” is less about assisting immigrants to become full members in the American polity than it is about churning out reliable Democratic voters. They have spent years fighting immigration enforcement at every turn, while attempting to gut naturalization requirements and register newly eligible voters as quickly as possible. They are nothing like the Kiwanis Club or the American Legion, non-partisan civic organizations that used to help immigrants assimilate. They are partisan street fighters, hostile to the norms of traditional America. Responding to the Supreme Court’s blocking the president’s illegal amnesty, the executive director of CHIRLA, Angelica Salas, labeled opponents of amnesty legislation as “those who flagrantly despise immigrants.” Describing what she characterizes as a “wave of violent, xenophobic, anti-immigrant dialogue,” Salas declared, “We have to get loud. Louder than we ever have been. . . . We have to get in [their] faces.” The executive director of CASA de Maryland, Gustavo Torres, is a longtime supporter of Communist causes, from his days working as a Marxist journalist in Sandinista Nicaragua in the 1980s to his continuing enthusiasm for Fidel Castro, including working for the release of five of Castro’s spies from American custody. Representative Dana Rohrbacher (R., Calif.) declared that CASA has “abetted criminal activity” by teaching illegal immigrants to “circumvent the law.” The New York Immigration Coalition, which Hillary Clinton addressed along with other immigration-activist groups in a speech at a conference late last year, complains that attempts by federal authorities to enforce American immigration law constitute a “disgrace.” ‘

  111. At least Trump is in the very best of health. We have now been assured by his personal physician that Trump will be “the healthiest president in history.” Trump will thereby eclipse the likes of Theodore Roosevelt, who even after his presidency was able to deliver a 90-minute speech immediately after being shot in the chest by a would-be assassin. Trump will surely be tougher than that wimp Reagan, for sure, who joked to his surgeons, after he’d been shot by John Hinckley, that he hoped the surgeons were Republicans. Tougher than Grant, Lincoln, Washington … Yeah, that’s what I think of, when I view Trump and his physique as he waddles from the golf cart to the putting green with a butt the size of a 1959 Buick: What a healthy specimen of humanity he is! Pretty much a carbon copy of any of our Olympic athletes, in fact.

    Trump may secretly be one of the X-Men, in fact, since according to his doctor, his most recent examination “showed only positive results.” Trump predicted in a Tweet that his results would show “perfection.” This seems to me roughly as objective as the climate science people, no?

    The photo of the doctor is priceless. Yes, that’s a doctor upon whose opinion the Nation should stake its fate!

    Because of all the lines of 3 lone people waiting to get into a Trump speech/rally and getting seats in front center because they are the only non-media people in the auditorium.

    On August 10, Trump had a rally at the BB&T Center in Sunrise. Approximate capacity 21,000. (the Panthers play there in winter, and it gets used for shows, rock concerts, etc. Cheap Trick is set to play there next week.)

    Sunrise is a city, but not the biggest around. It has a population of about 85,000. It is in Broward County, population about 1.9 million. Someone living in Miami-Dade County (population about 2.7 million) or Palm Beach County (about 1.4 million) could attend, if they were willing to drive as much as an hour or hour and a half to get there.

    21,000 people at a rally in a metropolitan area with about 6,000,000 people.

    Broward County has about 1,140,000 registered voters. Half are registered Democrats, a quarter are NPA, and just under a quarter are registered Republicans. (Stats from the Supervisor of Elections office)

    21,000 attended. That means at least 1,100,000 registered Broward voters did not attend. To win Broward, Trump needs to win (in effect) all Republican and independent voters, and at least a small numberof Democrats. Clinton needs only the Democrats.

  152. “So is Hillary Clinton sick? It’s a fair question. I’m not just talking about those endless coughing fits, and that she always needs to be propped up on pillows when she sits, and requires help standing or climbing stairs.

    Four years ago, she had a concussion, and a blood clot in her brain sent her to the hospital. Later, her head was still so injured that she was seeing double. That’s why she wore those Fresnel prism glasses: to counter double-vision.

    Have you seen that video of her apparently having a seizure while being asked a question? The Clinton spin doctors say that’s just a joke. Really?

    And then there’s the guy who is always with her, but he’s not Secret Service. He’s a paramedic — you can see by the badge he sometimes wears. He carries an injection device, maybe it’s anti-seizure medication. He’s been seen talking her through a stressful situation.

    Why does Hillary Clinton always wear the strangest pant suits that look like they’re specifically made to order. Are they tailored to conceal things underneath? A medical device?

    Here’s an e-mail that Clinton originally hid from the public, that was released only after a court ordered it. In it, Huma Abedin, Clinton’s closest aide, says her boss is “often confused” and needs to take naps.

    That topic comes up a lot.

    I typed the word “sleep” into a searchable archive of Clinton e-mails, the ones a court ordered the State Department to disclose.

    There were a lot of troubling results:

    Clinton herself says she’s “chronically exhausted”. Her staff calls her a “champion napper”.

    And then there’s her email about the symptoms of “decision fatigue.” Another about Provigil, a drug “often prescribed to treat excessive sleepiness in patients with Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s, and multiple sclerosis.”

    That’s just the beginning…

    Being president is the most stressful job in the world. You need energy — both physical and mental.

    What exactly is wrong with Hillary Clinton? This is an important issue that needs to be addressed before the election.

    Why isn’t the mainstream media interested in covering it?”

    Instead of the Sniveling Coward, we should call him the Shriveling Coward.

    Patterico (bcf524) — 8/26/2016 @ 7:32 am

    The Pontiff has declared, in so, so many words that Mr. Trump is a fraud, a Shriveling Coward, and a danger to the rest of us. And many commenters here agree. Why, he’s the worst thing that could ever happen to our country, our constitutional foundation, our heritage, and going forward we will be in the worst of hands should we elect The Donald! The highlights here that constantly snipe at everything that Mr. Trump says or is reported to be saying are targeting the man, his ideas, and the Pontiff’s projections about how miserable we will be in the future, if he becomes president.

    So I will attempt to explain why there are so many of us who will vote for Mr. Trump, regardless of his non-conservative, non-constitutional stance. It is not because we are fools or ignorant. Of course this is your chance to bail on an opinion that differs.

    First we looked at the current conservatives. The movement that is called conservatism, while great at spouting off about the principles articulated in the Declaration of Independence, and the so-called Law of the Land—the Constitution—have done practically and effectively nothing to defend these ideals. As practiced under the Obama administration the Constitution is only used as needed to destroy those principles.

    The electorate elevated people, who promised to uphold those principles, to their high offices, and what the hell has happened in the past 50-100 years? Forget the economy for a minute. It is too bad to even discuss. And forget the endless wars taking place through out the world. The main problem is that we, the persons who have supported our government are worse off, freedom-wise, than we have ever been. The central government is dictating our every movement and transaction.

    So, I ask all you pure, idealistic, principled conservatives, where were you when all of this was happening? What are you doing now? Going along with Obama? Going along with amnesty for millions who traipsed over our border without any interdiction? Willing to ignore the blatant illegality of Mrs. Clinton? The list just keeps on growing.

    And the we look at the current state of the legal profession—it’s practitioners as attorneys; it’s executors as judges. Then we look at things as simple as referendums that are in opposition to the judgements and decisions passed down to us. The will of many us, passed in elections, has been negated and overturned.

    We look at the current state of the culture—the rampage of criminal gangs who are not arrested or prosecuted to even an iota of the justice they deserve. How about the constant denigration of a morality that has served this and other societies for hundreds of years? The complete lack of representatives of the people who are willing to push back against this onslaught; that is allowing ridiculous and repugnant theories of civil society to take the place of common sense.

    And I’m talking about the common sense of the people who did not want this crap foisted upon them. Another example is the borderless country we are faced with, which is the current situation. And another that makes it illegal to ask for an ID which might prove that a voter is a citizen. What the hell is going on?

    In case you did not realize it, this is not what the United States of America was founded to promote, but it is Hillary Clinton’s and her party’s objective to continue.

    Mr. Trump represents to many millions of people, all flawed racists of course, that we don’t agree with the Democrat party’s stance on , or anyone who supports this status quo, just about anything.

    Those legal beagles who hang out here will perhaps respond and tell us how flawed our reasoning is. And perhaps some one of you might reconsider your abject hatred for Mr. Trump who is, right now, the last best hope to stop this destruction. If not, then don’t count on the chance to do it 4-8 years from now.

    And finally, if you’re counting on the Article V state conventions to bail us out, then you are really a Dreamer.

  160. “Did Trump make nice with Kasich? He’ll lose Ohio without Kasich’s organization.”

    He already won Ohio, it was Kasich’s ‘organization’ that won it for him:

    “Indeed, when you remove the phony voters, Trump would have won Ohio by about 45% to 35% for Kasich.

    Now I’ve uncovered an even more damning piece of evidence. In Summit County, home to Akron and part of the blue northeastern region of Ohio, the Republican primary turnout was greater by far than even the general election of 2012. Turnout in 2012 for Romney in the general was about 100,000 — and for the Republican primary in 2016, over 150,000. No other county that I’ve looked at around the nation has shown a higher turnout for this year’s primary than last year’s general.

    No primary is so exciting that it not only captures every single Republican voter from the previous general election, but a further 40-50% increase due to either crossover voters or infrequent voters (who rarely show up for primaries, even when they do come out of the shadows). And this gigantic percentage increase was also large in absolute numbers — 40-50,000. That’s nearly 10% of the entire voting eligible population, and therefore closer to 20% of the regular pool of voters.

    Obviously these crossover voters did not show up of their own volition, but because they were pressured by Kasich and the state government, which has control over state employees, contractors, employees for contracting companies, welfare beneficiaries, and so on and so forth. “You’re going to turn out to vote for me, or you’re going to be out of luck with your job and benefits.”

    NK getting basic for Kasich is expected, but still disappointing, hear he’s part of a demographic(#NeverTrumpers) that considers open corruption just something you have to tolerate in the name of doing business.

    Yes Kasich won Ohio, and you propose that all the Kasich voters will (1) write him in (2) stay home (3) vote for Hillary (4) leave the presidential ballot empty? No one will vote for Trump? I can’t believe that any of those outcomes will happen. There will be a mix and Trump will be a winner rather than a loser in Ohio.

    Certainly nothing you wrote convinced me of anything about Trump, or him being a last best hope, or him being any kind of hope, or anything.

    Your rant makes some points with which I agree, about Hillary Clinton and about America’s trajectory. But your comment is completely free of any demonstration that Trump has any merit whatsoever: You don’t talk about his history as a public servant (he has none) or as a conservative (again, he has none); you don’t talk about his wisdom or sound judgment (I’m surprised my keyboard doesn’t melt as I type that, it’s so ridiculous); and you certainly don’t talk about his consistently conservative positions, because he contradicts himself on every position with about the same frequency that he melts down on Twitter, which is to say, several times daily on average over the past year and a half.

    You don’t have to convince anyone here (except a couple of progressive trolls who don’t read your comments anyway) that Clinton is evil. But you haven’t even tried to convince anyone that Trump is any different or better.

    You can’t.

    Then you start in with stuff like this:

    So, I ask all you pure, idealistic, principled conservatives, where were you when all of this was happening? What are you doing now? Going along with Obama? Going along with amnesty for millions who traipsed over our border without any interdiction? Willing to ignore the blatant illegality of Mrs. Clinton? The list just keeps on growing.

    Screw you for condemning people you obviously know nothing about, including me. I can show you day by day — on my own blog, here, and anywhere else on the internet where issues are debated, including liberal bastions like the WaPo — where I’ve done my dead level best to promote constitutional conservatism, fiscal conservatism, small-government conservatism, and — to the extent possible, given the befuddled choices made by confused idiots like the Trumpkins, or their only-slightly-less-incompetent cousins who ran McCain’s campaign — I’ve argued for and supported candidates who demonstrate their commitment to those values.

    So dude, don’t pretend that you’re trying to persuade when you’re obviously just here to vent and insult, and you care nothing about persuasion.

    NK-sich up and admits that authoritarian election-rigging is just fine if his people do it. Just the sort of attitude we expect from the parasitic #NeverTrumpers and the #LyingPress. Fair’s fair! Trump’s coalition doesn’t have a lot of fancy ‘ground gamers’ or ‘election organizers’, but quite frankly, those sorts of careers don’t appeal to real Americans anyway.

    I’ll stick with the Second Amendment people and the notion that fraud is, in fact, just another form of force, and can be dealt with via counter-force accordingly.

  168. “You don’t talk about his history as a public servant (he has none)”

    Only liberal democrats talk about ‘public service’ as an unalloyed good, most normal Republicans see being a businessman as a plus, all things being equal.

    “or as a conservative (again, he has none)”

    He’s conservative or realist on government intervention in his own businesses and even more importantly, has raised his family by all accounts according to conservative principles (versus taking the single-to-no-children careerist path so many Beltway types fall into naturally). He exudes the style and instinct of conservatism even when he’s not following the talking points, which are in fact contradictory (witness him being more sensible on abortion restriction than 95% of pro-lifers.)

    “you don’t talk about his wisdom or sound judgment (I’m surprised my keyboard doesn’t melt as I type that, it’s so ridiculous)”

    Go make a billion dollars and talk to me about sound judgment in the morning.

    “and you certainly don’t talk about his consistently conservative positions, because he contradicts himself on every position with about the same frequency that he melts down on Twitter, which is to say, several times daily on average over the past year and a half.”

    He doesn’t melt down, he instigates meltdowns for his own benefit. Twitter is about throwing a bunch of ideas out there to see which forumlation appeals most to people-less than 10k retweets and maybe not, over 40k and it may be worth following.

    “Screw you for condemning people you obviously know nothing about, including me.”

    WE NOW KNOW THAT:

    1. Beldar doesn’t know what a life lived by conservative principles looks like.
    2. Beldar doesn’t Tweet enough to know what a “Twitter meltdown” looks like.
    3. Beldar doesn’t take anything as vulgar as money made as a measure of success or sound judgment, good or ill.
    4. Beldar literally thinks ‘public service’ is the highest good, whereas most of the Founders considered it a morally hazardous career at best.
    5. Beldar can’t check past actions to determine trends, must depend on exact words on every step.

    Verdict: Poor and easily duped. Easy Cruz mark. Do not engage except for your own entertainment.

    Further, whatever the turnout numbers show, his claim is ludicrous:

    they were pressured by Kasich and the state government, which has control over state employees, contractors, employees for contracting companies, welfare beneficiaries, and so on and so forth. “You’re going to turn out to vote for me, or you’re going to be out of luck with your job and benefits.”

    [Updated the appendix to show county-by-county data, with extensive discussion]

    “Further, whatever the turnout numbers show, his claim is ludicrous”

    Congenital liars like Gerald who lie about easily verifiable public information don’t get to determine the plausibility of claims. They get to sit down and shut up.

    Which is why I said ‘probably’. It’s entirely possible that a non-#NeverTrumper could lie in the same manner as a traditional #NeverTrumper, just like it’s possible that a Republican surge in traditionally Democrat-supporting demographics that’s gone for Trump in every other state would mysteriously go for Kasich in Ohio. Possible! But highly unlikely to stop either investigation or derision.

    “Lying Leftist Democrat Donald Trump.”

    The thing about them there ‘linguistic kill shots’ that you so ineptly attempt to fix on the guy is that to be effective, they actually have to illuminate a truth of the target that’s already been minimized. Also, they tend to be short. Also, not already in use. Also from a trusted or at least personally successful source.

    “But Christoph hasn’t seen that, as he lies by using a different moniker after he has been multiply banned from here, while in full-throated support of a liar.””

    Not Christoph (isn’t he that dude from [i]The Truman Show?[/i],) but guess that makes Ben Franklin, AKA ‘Silence Dogood’, a terrible lying wretch too.
