The Widdershins

Polarization Profiteers…

Posted on: October 11, 2016

Good morning Widdershins.  We are in D+36, freshly scrubbed from Sunday night’s Republican pre-Halloween grave digging.  It was as if the Headless Horseman borrowed someone’s jack-o-lantern, carved a hen’s butt for a mouth, and turned it loose for a Walking Dead audition. trump-on-debate-stage

All the polls say Hillary won the debate by double digits.  There was carping by Leftie bed wetters about why Hillary failed to put the Yam away.  Here’s why she didn’t:  Strategically, there is nothing better than having Trump as the head of the Republican ticket.

If Hillary had put the rancid, orange Vienna Sausage away, Republicans would have hightailed it like there was a fire at the two-for-one whorehouse.  A ticket led by Trump is Nancy Pelosi’s readmission to the Speaker’s Office.  Trump is going to be tied around every Republican candidate like a cheap Chinese necktie.  Unlike Obama, Hillary and her pips are playing three-dimensional politics for Democratic down ballot candidates.

Hillary flourished Sunday night, we survived, and we saw that a cornered rat is always full of fight, but still susceptible to its love of fermented diary products.  The clamorous Yam’s behavior isn’t surprising.  He can’t be what he’s not – so we can forget the possibility of a decent person miraculously appearing.

I believe what we saw Sunday night was a preview of a new cable channel – low def CDS.  It seems as if the polarization profiteers have gained absolute control of the orange gorilla’s snortables in order to go full tilt in the pursuit of salacious vulgarity.  Who are these polarization profiteers of whom I speak?

Giant Earwig

Giant Earwig

Steve Bannon, Breitbart’s pernicious earwig, David Bossie, a hissing cockroach whose entire career has involved Clinton derangement, and Chatty Kellyanne Conway, the cow killer mutillidae, the real charmer and great pretender of the insect and political world.  They have been hating Clintons since Marky Mark was still running with the Funky Bunch.

All three of these psuedo-humans perfectly mimic their diabolical insect namesakes.  When we thought they couldn’t go lower, they went all Deepwater Horizon on us.  They have learned when you ride a tiger; it is awfully hard to dismount.giant-hissing-cockroach

The most honest thing the crumb at the bottom of the Cheeto bag ever said was, “I’ll run for President and make money at it.”  That’s what we saw last night – a sneak peek of coming attractions on the CDS channel, the visual fever swamp of the Alt-right deplorables.

There will be a remake of Murder She Wrote in her Emails.  There will a soap opera Days of our Wives that times the marriages of these cretins with a sweep secondhand.  There will be a wildlife show like Animal Planet, but it will be called Animal Penthouse as a live feed from Trump’s office and apartment.  Of course, there will be Scandal updates on the hour and the news will be Fairly Unbalanced.  After hours there will be a soft-porn homoerotic, all shirtless Putin program.

Mutillidae

Mutillidae

Undoubtedly, Roger Ailes will be in charge of personnel, leg cameras, and skirt height.  Rudy Giuliani will have a show called The 4 Ds: Dementia, Dental Disease, and Divorce.  Chris Christie will have two shows – a new take on a cooking show called, Believe Me, I Ate the Whole Thing and Bridgegate: Stories from Prison.

This CDS channel will be the first cable channel to utilize smell-o-vision.  Tuning in will reek of regret just like its owners and stars.  These people live their lives with such iridescent regret their only outlet is spewing vituperative bile to ease their self-loathing.  Just like junkies who need more and more for a better high, they need any facade of political correctness to be stripped away so their venomous attacks can be sprayed with reckless abandon.

The CDS channel will service those who believe Fox is too polite and environmentally friendly.  Unhampered by logic or science, the CDS will be long on “feelacts” – those things that feel like facts.  All I can say is:  Since people who get their news from Fox would be better informed if they listened to no news at all; those who come to be informed by the CDS will be given two coupons for the nearest drive-by lobotomy clinic just in case the first one doesn’t take. abandon-ship

Sunday night Donald Trump did what he knows how to do – belittle, beleaguer, and degrade a woman on stage as well as four seated in the audience.  He tried to intimidate through sheer size and Lurch-like looming.  If his sentences were jigsaw puzzles, we still wouldn’t have the outer edges fitting together, but we recognize the picture on the box top – Greed and Narcissism by Trump during his orange period.

Of this I’m sure, just like Fox, Limbaugh, Hannity, and the rest, the best thing for the business of CDS is a Hillary Rodham Clinton administration.  Listen closely and you can tell it’s part of the business plan of the polarization profiteers.

What’s on your mind?

Prolix, you are on fire! Amazing post.

Here’s what’s on my mind: Right on schedule, a victim of Drumpf’s sexual predation comes forward and says, “How can people not believe me now?” Golly gee whiz, guess where he grabbed her?

http://www.msn.com/en-us/news/politics/trump-accuser-jill-harth-reacts-to-his-groping-comments-how-can-people-not-believe-me-now/ar-BBxgaUL?ocid=wispr

As The Terminator said “Ah’ll be bock”.

I got my absentee ballot yesterday so I want to circle my ovals and everything else I need to do and then get it ready to send back tomorrow.

I hope all of them – Trump, Alies, Bannon, Bossie, Hannity – sink every dime they can muster up into the CDS channel and it fails miserably. And they need to take that venom spitting Judge Jeannine with them. She’s worse than Hannity.

@1, thanks MB, I’m seeing hints about up to 8 more tapes out there. Before this is over the universe of Trump voters will correlate quite nicely with the mailing list of the Klan.

@2, Remember Fredster — vote early and often.

The woman on the right is apparently some kind of county level Repub official. That’s scary.

//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js

@3, that Judge Jeannine has off-loaded a truckload of bile and hatefulness over the Cheeto-reject. She seems so angry, but that doesn’t make her different than any of the other Trumpanzees. Let’s make a deal — you can have Jeannine as your target, and I’ll keep the dumbest man to have ever been paid to talk on teevee as my target.

I just saw a sample ballot for the election here. The first two – Pres and US Senate – have a Democrat (and Libertarian) on the ballot. The next five are state or district wide – state senate, state rep, etc. They all are incumbent Republicans running unopposed. The next 12 are local. All R’s running unopposed, only two not incumbent.

Of 19 elective offices, only two have a Democrat to vote for. It’s getting worse and worse around here. It wasn’t this bad before people lost their minds when Obama was elected. On the bright side, I’ll be in and out of my polling station in 30 seconds flat. 😀

@5: If only! And it’s not like it hasn’t been done before. (Just teasing)

@7: Oh my. I think there were 6 or 7 Prez candidates on my ballot besides the Dem and Repubs. I know Libertarian and Green party were there and I didn’t even recognize the others. Let’s see:

There are these folks on the ballot for Prez:

Darrell Castle, Scott Bradley
Constitution Party

Evan McMullin, Nathan Johnson
Courage Character Service

Laurence Kotlikoff, Edward Lea
It’s Our Children

Tom Hoefling, Steve Schulin
Life, Family, Constitution

Princess Jacob, Milton Fambro
Loyal Trustworthy Compassion

Gloria La Riva, Eugene Puryear
Socialism and Liberation

Jerry White, Niles Niemuth
Socialism Equality Anti-War

Alyson Kennedy, Osborne Hart
Socialist Workers Party

Chris Keniston, Deacon Taylor
Veterans Party

And this guy is always running for some office. This time it’s the Senate:
MV “Vinny” Mendoza

“Katy Tur had to be escorted to her damn car by the Secret Service because of what came out of his face”

I read this late last night/early a.m. and these folks have me concerned about what happens after the election when Hillary wins.

@6, that lady wouldn’t pass a mental health screen.

@8, at least you can start celebrating Hillary’s election earlier.

@12, it wouldn’t have hurt Jenna to maybe trying something really time consuming like a google search to research why men and women react negatively to a woman of power. Nah, that would have been too much to ask so she just writes a story that makes us all feel depressed about the country because of these loony tunes whose votes count as much as ours do.

@15: Well the story line was probably supposed to be Why do Trump supporters hate Hillary? But as batsh*t crazy as some of these people are, I am concerned that some are really going to go off the deep end when she wins.

Nate Silver has Hillary at 83.6%.

Another point — the NBC/Wall Street poll came out today. Overall, it had Hillary with a 10% lead, down from the weekend sample of 14%. Here’s the rub, after the debate they finished the national sample. They are saying in those numbers (Sunday night west coast and Monday), Trump’s numbers bounced back a little. The difference in that sample was only 7%. They admit it was a small sample.

Well here’s my problem — they have camouflaged just how small that sample was. When you go to the cross-tabs, you can’t tell how many interviews were completed on Monday. From what I can tell, it was either 100 interviews or 300 interviews from what I can tell. In fact, it might have been heavily Republican slanted to finish out the sample.

Just some inside skinny, each and every pollster on the planet, breaks out daily interviews. When you get the reports, you know exactly how many interviews were completed each day. Also, typically the last day’s interviews fill-out the sample. You go searching for the demographics you need to fill-out the sample. Given the video on Friday, scientifically, the Republican response rate was probably depressed over the weekend. That means that Monday was a Republican catch up day and slanted.

With that said, if the sample was 100 interviews it might as well have been written on toilet paper. If it was 300, it could be a little more valuable and be written on the inside toilet paper roll.

@17: They don’t say specifically how many interviews were done? That seems odd.

Steve Bannon, the chairman of the right-wing news outlet Breitbart who became CEO of Donald Trump’s presidential campaign, gave explicit orders to his staff to destroy Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.).

On editorial conference calls, the Breitbart chairman would often say “Paul Ryan is the enemy,” according to a source who worked with Bannon at the news organization.

In December 2015, weeks after Ryan became Speaker, Bannon wrote in an internal Breitbart email obtained by The Hill that the “long game” for his news site was for Ryan to be “gone” by the spring.

In the Dec. 1 email, Breitbart’s Washington editor, Matt Boyle, suggested to Bannon via email that a story promoting Ryan’s planned overhaul of the mental health system would be a good way to “open a bridge” to Ryan.

“I’ve got a cure for mental health issue,” Bannon wrote to Boyle. “Spank your children more.”

http://thehill.com/blogs/ballot-box/presidential-races/300445-exclusive-trump-campaign-ceo-wanted-to-destroy-ryan

@18, the n = 900 for the total interviews. They don’t break out how many were completed each day.

@19: Gawd it’s going to be so much fun to watch the Repubs destroy themselves.

Trump is a deeply stupid, easily manipulated narcissist. The guy in charge of his campaign is using Trump to take over the Republican Party. Trump doesn’t care, he’s probably going to buy Breitbart and start a new alternative reality network. Meanwhile Pooty Poot is hacking into private emails and using Assange to try to elect Trump, and Trump is fine with it. What a worthless piece of Orange sh*t. He surrounds himself with people who kiss his @$$, and that’s all he cares about.

@22, I’m serious about Trump, Breitbart, and Ailes creating a media concern. It will be CDS all the time, but it will be real. Trump TV with Alec Jones starring. It will happen.

Just tonight I heard Rick Tyler, Cruz’s fired spokesperson, say the same thing. It is gonna happen.

They have a base of maybe 25-30 million people. That is a great advertising base for gold coins, guns, and bedazzling kits.

This is just beyond rich, and the irony is strong.

Jefferson Beauregard Sessions (lil Senator from Bama) said he’s not sure that Trump’s actions and wishes on that tape…lil Jeff isn’t sure those actions would constitute sexual assault.

Now, Jefferson Beauregard was a U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of Bama. He graduated from the Bama Law School. He was nominated for a federal judgeship by Raygun but could not get confirmed. So this man is “not sure” Trump’s actions would constitute sexual assault. When he’s up for reelection he will probably win by a landslide.

“This was very improper language, and he’s acknowledged that,” Sen. Sessions, a top Trump surrogate who signed onto the GOP nominee’s campaign early on, told The Weekly Standard Sunday.

“But beyond the language, would you characterize the behavior described in that [video] as sexual assault if that behavior actually took place?” The Weekly Standard pushed.

“I don’t characterize that as sexual assault. I think that’s a stretch. I don’t know what he meant—,” Sessions stated.

“So if you grab a woman by the genitals, that’s not sexual assault?” The Weekly Standard continued.

“I don’t know. It’s not clear that he — how that would occur,” Sessions concluded.

Uh-huh. Roll Tide.

@23: And they’ll make it a pay channel also to get some recurring revenue coming in.

@24, Sen. Sessions should have the good fortune to have Sister Unity to grab him by his little junk, drag him around for a couple of hours, and then ask him to wax eloquent as to what is and what is not sexual assault.

@26: LOL! Sister Unity might decide to delegate that duty to a novice sister because EWWWW!

A little more info on lil Jeff.

“Many people in Alabama have said to me if we had just let him be a federal judge in Mobile, nobody would have heard of him,” Hebert said. “Being rejected then launched him into the U.S. Senate. They jokingly say we would be better off.”

@26 I don’t know about Sister Unity, but there are many “P***y Grabs Back” memes all over the internet right now.

@29: Sister Unity is one of the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence, Los Angeles Motherhouse.

@26, I thought people would be playing off “P***y Riot” the Russian punk band, but I must be the only person who thinks that would be funny.

@32: Didn’t even cross my mind, but yeah, would have been funny.

The “rancid orange vienna sausage” doesn’t even know when the election is

Donald Trump even exaggerates dates, apparently. https://t.co/RJTlVHnObT— Maddow Blog (@MaddowBlog) October 12, 2016

Dr. David Baker euthanized Mike the Tiger VI today. Here’s Mike “playing” with a guy. Apparently he did this frequently.

@33, what a beautiful animal!

@33, beautiful creature.

@35 and 36: This Mike was a mix-I guess is the word of Bengal and Siberian tigers. They found him at a big cat sanctuary I believe in Indiana. They will look for the next Mike from a similar place. LSU has never obtained them from the wild.

I was watching that 11th hr. thing with Brian Williams until he brought in Nina Turner. Williams mentioned something about her being a Bernie supporter and she said “and still am”. Click

I heard earlier on MSNBC that Hillary’s campaign had released a “statement” earlier today but I can’t find it anywhere. It said that, according to their polls, AZ and especially GA was looking like a win. OMG. If I only get to vote for 2 Dems on my ballot and then Hillary wins the state?! This house won’t be able to hold me. I’ll be out in the front yard jumping up and down, screaming, laughing and hootin’ and hollerin’. The neighbors will call the police and they will find me laughing hysterically with tears of joy flowing down my face. Please let it happen…

GAgal, I found this piece at the NYT.

Prolix, another fab post, where do you get your energy??? There is so much stuff happening every day, I can hardly take it in. btw, that gif of crazy trump rocking back & forth over that chair is creeping me out more than the bugs. Oh, and love “feelacts”! Perfect!

@39, GAgal, that would be amazing!

@34, what a shame about Mike VI. I’ve read that tigers enjoy water and are strong swimmers.

fluffpo has an article about their own investigation into Benghazi. Its complicated, but according to a 1990 law, State has to hire the cheapest security for foreign sites and the Benghazi security was unarmed and disappeared before the attack. Apparently, pointy-head didn’t bother with this in his $7 million attack on Hillary. I glanced at the comments and they were pretty good.

@43: I saw a link somewhere, maybe logging out of yahoo, and the link was to an article about some tiger running along a beach and into the water. Ah, here it is:

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/video/news/video-1338325/TIGERS-spotted-playfully-running-sea.html

tee hee. I guess KellyAnn won’t be bringing up the Paula Jones “settlement” again

I just saw this on another site so naturally I had to borrow it.

@46 Yeah, unless she first finds a way to mitigate tRump’s similar actions in settling suits before she goes in that direction.

The Bad Lipreading people have done the first prez debate.

Longer, complex sentences with complex thoughts about real policy seem much longer than short, choppy, snippets of incoherent ramblings, but Trump talked longer at Sunday night’s debate:

//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js

@50: Yeah he was kvetching about not getting equal time or enough time.

Today at his rallies he’s been crowing about how he won the debate. Uh-huh. Yeah right.

//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js

@52, excellent!

Love those videos and tweets.

There was the strangest letter to the editor in my paper this week. This guy was offering to take your brand new pick up and beat it up for the low price of $199.95. He said he’d scratch up the paint and let his teenagers drive it all weekend to add some dents, and on and on. Finally at the end he gets to his point. In no time at all, he’ll have your truck in the same shape as Donald Trump has the Republican party.

@45, that was amazing. I could watch that for half an hour.

@46, she’s pathetic, an embarrassment to all women.

@52, LOLOL!

@54: Oh I think the Repub Party is in worse shape than a dented pickup truck.

Build that wall! Build that wall! Build a wall around the Cheeto!

He’s disgusting. He’s lewd. He’s a criminal.

@57 of course Trump threatened to sue if they reported the story. Guess they’re not too worried about it.

Question: A few of my Facebook friends are re-posting some dubious web-site saying Sanders is registered as a write-in candidate in nearly all the states. Berniebots are going bananas over this information. It seems impossible, no? Does anyone if it’s true? Or should I tell them this is false information? I tried googling but don’t see an easy answer.

You can see the ballot for your state at https://ballotpedia.org/Main_Page. My state has Hillary, Trump & Johnson on the ballot. I guess you could write-in anyone you wanted, but I don’t believe a person can be “registered” as a write-in

@60, you have to register/file as a candidate a certain time period before the general election and it can be a different deadline in each state. I recall the threat of Sanders running as an independent was made before, but he’s missed that deadline — IIRC it was back even before the Dem convention.

DYB, this article is from 2004, but it’s close to my current understanding which is absolutely in line with Luna’s.

Six states don’t allow any write-ins.

Thirty-five states require that a write-in candidate must submit some form of affidavit and, sometimes, a filing fee at least one month before the election. In North Carolina, these candidates must circulate a petition.

The other 9 states are a mixture of requirements.

http://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2004-11-01/the-ins-and-outs-of-write-ins

Bernie is not on the ballot, good grief. What is wrong with these people?!

@23 – I completely agree, and I said the same thing a few weeks ago. It will absolutely happen.

Did I not predict that the victims of the Cheeto would come out this week? Karma is a bitch, Donald.

Wow – I just thought you could write in anyone. Those Berning bums – they nned to move on.

Some of them are just joyous to “not vote on fear.” Bill Maher calls these people “Fucking Idiots” on his show. I’m no there yet to call them that out loud, but I do it in my mind. Sanders would have to register himself in the states where it’s necessary, right? And he’s highly unlikely to do that.

@65 contrask, you can write in anyone you want. It just won’t matter if they haven’t filed properly. There’s write in line on every election on my ballot. Since 17 are Republicans running unopposed, I might write in the Duggar children starting with Josh – if I have time to waste. 🙂

@66, it’s too late, the deadlines have passed in almost all the states.

In addition to the aforementioned women, there’s a former Miss Washington and a People magazine reporter who have published their stories of assault by the orange “bad touch” mauler.

Bannon, Bossie and Kushner have “conveniently” found some “new” Bill Clinton accusers.

That view has now become the guiding principle of Trump’s presidential campaign and explains why Trump is going to such lengths to portray Hillary Clinton as an enabler of sexual violence. On Tuesday, Bannon laid out the campaign’s argument. “She’s led a program of victim intimidation,” Bannon told Trump staffers, according to two advisers who were present. “This has nothing to do with consensual sexual affairs and infidelities. This is Bill. We’re going to turn him into Bill Cosby. He’s a violent sexual predator who physically abuses women who he assaults. And she takes the lead on the intimidation of the victims.”

http://www.bloomberg.com/politics/articles/2016-10-12/trump-takes-a-back-to-the-future-focus-on-bill-clinton-s-women

Is there anywhere I could just say that I wish this weren’t another 1992 “Year Of The Woman*”?

I hope we get a tectonic shift this year. It sure seems like we could.

But the same sexist lead-em-by-the-nose media that guaranteed that the women tazered into action by seeing their government dismiss them on both sides of the aisle in 1992 would forget all about it during the next decade or so: that same media controls the mic this year.

I know many other disenfrancised people in this soi-disant democracy have said this, but for women, majority that we are, it is the most true. We are the canaries in the coal mine. What you allow to be done to us will eventually be done to all of you, and it will tear your republic apart.

*What woman? Sure wasn’t me or any woman I knew. To remind anyone not paying attention, that year was when a now sitting Supreme Court justice lied under oath during his nomination, on easily fact checked statements but for which fact checking was utterly forgone, about his discriminatory acts during his tenure as head of the sole U.S. government agency enforcing the laws allowing women to earn their own living.

@70, unless Bannon, Bossie, and Chatty Kellyanne have invented the “way back” machine along with these additional women to take us back to the 1990s, I don’t think it matters. Their other big attack is a long lost Clinton son. They are so desperate the next thing is alien children.

@71, Perfect! We were sitting in the same seat and saw Thomas’ confirmation the exact same way. He is the worst and most ineffective Supreme Court justice in my lifetime, if not history.

Just in time for Halloween, imagine Chris Christy is an orange jumpsuit after being arrested — a Chris-o-lantern.

https://thinkprogress.org/christie-criminal-summons-67f8c6307b1e#.4iwrue49a

The woman lies because of the armrests in First Class seats! According to Katrina Pierson that is.

@75, that woman is totally mental. If a campaign puts someone like that out there, just think how bad the others are that didn’t get the call.

This is just rich, Jack Kingston, former GA Rep. is on CNN saying Trump isn’t that kind of man. This isn’t the man I know. Wolfie asked him, “Have you known him 30 years?” No.

How long have you known him?

About a year.

LOL

@76: I just loved the lol-ing of Beinart and a few of the other panelists when she came up with that idea.

Kingston is such a yutz. I remember a few years back when he came up with this brilliant idea.

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/12/18/jack-kingston-school-lunch_n_4467711.html

@79, I can’t wait for GAgal’s input about him. As you say, he’s mayor of Yutzville.

SHINNERS!!! Just checking in, lots of activity in Casa Clinton, the newly minted HRC office by my house…there are TONS of newly minted naturalized citizens in my neighborhood who have yet to get their voter card and I’m fielding them over to HRC staffers. I’m talking a LOT of newly minted naturalized citizens who want Hillary as their president. This has been the most help I’ve been able to offer: translating and getting them better info and registered, sending them to an HRC staffer that can get all the info they need.

In Florida at this moment, you don’t need your voter card to vote, you just need your driver’s license or other state or national ID before you’re given the ballot here, so a lot of misinformation is being spread. You can register tomorrow and not get your card until 3 weeks later, but you’ll still be on the voter roll. This is a misinformation tactic that needs to be addressed NOW, and yes, I told the team captain about it.

From the street teams my daughter has been a part of: Many people in Tampa are already registered and already voting for our girl HILLZ! Voter registration has been open (thank you Supreme Court decision) for another week due to the storm, so the street teams are out there still. We’re also making calls and getting the word out on early voting.

EARLY VOTING IS THE KEY. I already volunteered as a driver, so will keep you posted.

BTW, FLOTUS Michelle Obama’s speech in New Hampshire is EVERYTHING, thank you FLOTUS for confirming that WOMEN’S RIGHT ARE HUMAN RIGHTS and vice versa…please help to volunteer as phone bankers 🙂 in swing states???

Michelle Obama gave a barnburner of a speech today. Everyone should check it out. I have such admiration for that woman. GO MICHELLE!

She is so much better than her husband. I remember thinking that even when he started out – I said to hubby, “I wish I could vote for her! Hot D8mn.”

Madama B is my witness, didn’t we say in that blog where we met so many years ago…how we so much prefer (now FLOTUS) Michelle Obama’s fire over the tried but failed “let’s get along” John Kerry-school-of-liberals that POTUS was giving us….which is why we flocked to Future-POTUS HILLZ to begin with??

Oh, and I love this video endorsement of the Washington Post for our girl (please help with the link just in case the moderator kittens are mauling out therez 🙂 )

@80 I have never understood how Kingston weaseled his way on to TV. I always thought Maher had him on because he was amused by his accent and the stupid things he always said – always with that smile on his face. Maybe Wolf and others should ask him, next time he’s on, about his new job and how that squares up with Trump and BFF Putin.

Jack Kingston, the former Georgia congressman who now serves as an adviser to Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump, has been hired to lobby for a Syrian opposition group that is seeking to oust President Bashar al-Assad as the country’s bloody civil war continues.

As if this guy knows squat about Middle Eastern policy.

@84 – Yes we did! She made me cry.

I, personally, have had many, many instances of sexual assault in my life. Fortunately, no rape – more in the Donald Trump mode – but each one was humiliating, some were terrifying, and I was not believed when I told my parents about it in the late 70’s/early 80’s. I COMPLETELY understand why the woman who was assaulted by the Circus Peanut on the airplane didn’t report it at the time.

SM that WaPo video was killer! Finally, someone said it’s not because Trump is so dreadful but because SHE will be a great President. I can’t believe it took 3 weeks out from the election for some major media to FINALLY say the obvious. They should all be ashamed.

I saw most of Michelle’s speech when she was on today. When she was talking about “that guy who stands just little too close to you”, a chill went up my spine just like it did every time that happened. Hell, I’m in my mid-fifties and it still happens. I can’t count the number of times I’ve told men to take their hand off me. If you’re not my friend, don’t touch me.

@87 and 88 – Amen. Yes. Drumpf is trying to normalize the rape culture we’ve all been suffering through our entire lives.

@89, mb, just read your comment out loud to the family and they all loved it. Spot on. Spot freaking on.

@86, mb, was also groped and harassed all through my teens, twenties and well into my 30s. My parents believed me though, because I had several stalkers–one guy stalked me for 7 years. One was a famous football player, I was living with my Dad at the time and he was dying to catch him but never did. I could tell stories by the hour. What you said really resonated with me, because we all just had to endure this crap and men just got away with it. I remember being so interested in that first sexual harassment case. I wish I could have done that.

@82 SM, you rock! You really really do!

That Pierson woman is so awful! And I remember that weird Kingston.

Omg, the Dodgers finally beat the Washington Nationals!!! This freaking game was almost 5 hours long! Yay!

@90 and 91 – thank you, Annie. I feel very strongly that if you asked 200 women whether or not they have experienced what Michelle Obama described, all 200 would say yes. There is something deeply wrong with that. It’s a societal and world culture that views women as “less than” and men as the default human beings.

Fortunately, so many men, as she said, understand that women deserve respect and equal treatment, like our wonderful Widdershinian men. The tide is turning, and I don’t want to see it turned back! That’s one of the many reasons why we must elect Our Girl as the first female POTUS.

@95, Word! And thank you MB for creating this haven!
