So it's Clinton/Kaine for the 2016 ticket. Onto the DNC which I'm guessing will be easily a more positive unifying convention than the GOP's.


Convention chaos already: DNC chair out, protesters storm Philly
  • Chaos reigned Sunday ahead of the Democratic National Convention, as the party’s head was forced to quit, thousands of protesters took to the streets and delegates threatened a walk-out over Hillary Clinton’s vice-presidential pick.

    On the eve of the four-day convention to nominate the county’s first female presidential candidate, Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz resigned in disgrace over the hack of emails that showed DNC staffers favoring Clinton over her then rival, Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders.

    Meanwhile, throngs of Sanders supporters marched and pounded on drums, chanting “Hell no, DNC — we won’t vote for Hillary” in the sweltering heat during the first in an expected series of protests in Philadelphia.

    A leading Sanders supporter, Norman Solomon, also said a “vast majority” of the socialist’s delegates were considering turning their backs — or even walking out of the Wells Fargo Center — during Virginia Sen. Tim Kaine’s acceptance speech to run as Clinton’s second-in-command.

    The ouster of Wasserman Schultz, a Florida congresswoman, came just hours after Democrats revealed that she had been replaced as their convention’s chairwoman by little-known Rep. Marcia Fudge (D-Ohio)....

    Meanwhile, Democratic sources told CNN that the hacked emails had inflamed Sanders supporters and could destroy the party-unity deal between Sanders and Clinton, with one Democrat saying: “It’s gas meets flame.”

    And desperate Clinton aides floated a conspiracy theory that Russian hackers had engineered the email scandal in a bid to help elect Trump....

    Wasserman Schultz will be replaced as interim party chair by Donna Brazile, an ardent Hillary Clinton supporter...

    A longtime Democrat strategist, Brazile ran Vice President Al Gore’s disastrous 2000 presidential campaign — which saw him start wearing “reassuring,” earth-toned clothing in a failed bid to win over voters before losing to George W. Bush in an election decided by the US Supreme Court.

    Previously, she had to resign from Massachusetts Gov. Michael Dukakis 1988 presidential campaign for publicly alleging that then-Vice President George H.W. Bush had repeatedly cheated on his wife.


Bernie Sanders Supporters in Philadelphia Chant: ‘Lock Her Up!: at the pro-Sanders rally, attendees were more than eager to list the reasons that Mrs. Clinton deserved to be incarcerated.

I love how the DNC can decisively say that the Russians hacked the DNC's e-mails ("to help the Trump campaign" no less!!), yet they can't determine whether Hillary Clinton's private server that compromised top secret classified information was hacked by the Russians.

I just watched a DNC spokesperson at a press conference asked every whichway how they know this. And all he could say is "experts" disclosed this.
The "experts" are lying DNC strategists, making up any talking point they think can save this fiasco.

The fix was in with Comey and Loretta Lynch in their private deals with the Clintons.
The fix is twice as in with the very heart of the DNC leveraging out Sanders and laying out the red carpet for Hillary getting the nomination.

Trump for the first time is ahead in the polls. I can't wait to see the polls a week from now.

No candidate has ever deserved to lose like Frau Hitlery deserves to lose.


  • from Do Racists have lower IQ's...

    Liberals who bemoan discrimination, intolerance, restraint of Constitutional freedoms, and promotion of hatred toward various abberant minorities, have absolutely no problem with discriminating against, being intolerant of, restricting Constitutional freedoms of, and directing hate-filled scapegoat rhetoric against conservatives.

    EXACTLY what they accuse Republicans/conservatives of doing, is EXACTLY what liberals/Democrats do themselves, to those who oppose their beliefs.

Al Gore will skip the DNC: Gore is one of eight Tennessee superdelegates, but he has not pledged his support to presumptive nominee Hillary Clinton.

Debbie Wasserman Schultz jeered at DNC breakfast: a number are seen holding signs that say “E-Mails” and “Division!”

Protesters march on Democratic National Convention:
  • By late afternoon, hundreds of demonstrators were face to face with police on bikes. Five were taken into custody and placed in plastic handcuffs after they jumped a barrier that was erected just moments earlier. In total, dozens reportedly were taken into custody. But city police later said there had been no arrests; rather, 55 had been cited for disorderly conduct.

    Inside the convention hall, boos also broke out among Sanders supporters as they jeered at the very mention of Hillary Clinton’s name.

Which, in no way, means the facts alleged in the emails weren't true.
And, in fact, given the DNC has apologized, they have admitted the accuracy of the allegations contained therein.

Meanwhile...

The CNN cutaway to delegates looking stone faced at their phones during Franken's "hilarious" speech was brutal.

Woulda been awesome if Franken said he "won" his first race with air quotes.

So far no boos during Franken's speech. Might be a case of a bumpy start and looks like it's winding down now. I do think Trump's Russian ties may pose a problem for him. Guess Putin likes a candidate that thinks NATO is stupid.

Fair play!
