Based on their apparently poor health Omen should enjoy most of the spoils.

Ignatz Ratzkywatzky

So they're going to stop accepting bribes.
Mother of mercy, is this the end of RICO?

No. No it isn't.

Ignatz Ratzkywatzky

In a sane world these [false] promises would be recognized as an open admission their receipt of foreign money and all the other blatant conflicts of interest were equally improper when she was SoS.

Since her sole area of responsibility at State was foreign affairs it can plausibly be argued it was even more important then.

Ignatz Ratzkywatzky

I suspect Bill and Hillary won't be going to Louisiana together because they remember the end of Bonnie and Clyde.

Typhus ate eight comments of mine on the last thread.

What she means is hurry up and pay it in now.

What's up with that?

Well, I'm about to be convinced that the content was the problem.

Just censored another comment on the same theme.

I think the campaign lagged a but under Manfort's management, but he did do a great job for the convention. I think now that it's back to "Let Trump be Trump" versus traditional politicking, the momentum will pick up.

Testing Typhus again.

And again. I mention Bill Clinton's vice-president.

Marlene

I love JOM! Hillary going out like Bonnie Parker or as the result of Mad Cow? Decisions,decisions. :)

What is it?

And two more times.

It was strong content.

I'm not sure it's even a machine because I left the name off of the last one. Peripheral ones slip through, though.

A test.

Al Gore.

For shame.

It will not let me post the comment.

It's the content.  Not allowed.  Not safe.

Twelve times now. Other stuff goes through and not this damning comment.

It started when Typhus first acted up this AM.

Satisfactorily.

And again. Please, someone explain.

What is the gist of what you are trying to say?

Fourteenth effort, and much neutralized.

n, the $30,000,000 from Soros is a drop in the bucket.

Sneak the sneakiness pass the sneaky.

AG bragged in 2008 that he had ten times that figure.

Porchlight

Sucks to have the Manafort resignation step on the good Trump week and the LA visit, but ultimately this is inside baseball.

Trump insider on Reddit notes that FEC rules about making this kind of information public are very strict.

I don't think anyone has to worry about Manafort blabbing, much as the media would love a canary.

Let them talk about the campaign falling apart. It's all they do, anyway, and they're constantly proven wrong.

Scott Adams: Trump won the week, persuasion-wise

The third act begins.

Reddit comment summing it up:

[–]SteelyDan4EVER CA 25 points 31 minutes ago

This really is like a three-act arc, isn't it?

Act 1: Our hero emerges, against all odds, and screams ahead of the pack using his own unconventional style guided by a master who then falls away (Lewandowski). With an abundance of candidates and momentum, what could go wrong?

Then the setbacks occur for Act 2: the NeverTrumpers, Cruz missiles, the "wasted month," media carpet-bombing against his campaign, and the Khan Job. Once again, another master (Manafort) does his part then falls away. Things look grim for our hero...but then...!

Act 3: Some unexpected allies rally to the cause: Ailes, Bannon, Conway. Time is running out! Can he pivot?? Can he do it in time???

We centipedes know the answer. Really exciting stuff, this campaign.

The RG3 comeback had some good results last night: 2 TD passes, 6-8 for 96 yards and no picks, 3 rushes for 36 yards and he's learned to slide at the end, QB rating 154.2 while some prime offensive assets didn't play. It's only preseason and his ability to stay uninjured is still a big concern but this is as positive at this point as possible.

Ignatz Ratzkywatzky

Despite Powell's many flaws, he of course said no such thing, at least as she is characterizing it.
But even if what she said was true, WTH kind of excuse is that?
She ignored the State Department's own rules and in house experts for the advice of a long since retired SoS from the "enemy" party?

It demands of course the age old parent's question "if he told you to jump off a cliff, would you?"
One can dream.

Yah, rich; chronic alcoholism is explanation enough. Just look at the Fetal Alcohol Syndrome facies on her only child.

She has a rare greed for power, otherwise quite an ordinary human.

jimmyk

She ignored the State Department's own rules and in house experts for the advice of a long since retired SoS from the "enemy" party?

Especially because the rules and evolve all the time to keep up with technology and better understanding of threats to security. Whatever Colon did eight years earlier, whether legal or not, would have no bearing on its legality for Hillary. Aside from the fact that it's a completely lame grade school-type excuse--"Eddie Haskell told me to do it!"

jimmyk

Riddle me this: can a mad cow get mad cow disease? Discuss.

Speaking of old jokes:

During his physical, the doctor asked the patient about his daily activity level. He described a typical day this way:

"Well, yesterday afternoon, I waded along the edge of a lake, drank eight beers, escaped from wild dogs in the heavy brush, jumped away from an aggressive rattlesnake, marched up and down several rocky hills, stood in a patch of poison ivy, crawled out of quicksand and took four leaks behind big trees."

Inspired by the story, the doctor said, "You must be one hell of an outdoors man!"

"NAH," he replied, "I'm just a lousy golfer."

Speaking of old doctor jokes, one once asked a young woman if she was sexually active and she replied that no, she just lay there.

Posted by: Captain Hate | August 19, 2016 at 12:12 PM

Powell likely didn't tell her anything of the sort but, still, that assertion by Captain Hate personally hurts me because Colin Powell was a particular hero for me. Army man, Republican, etc. But . . . it's getting harder and harder to argue the point. Seems to be a card-carrying member of the UniParty. The man actively supported Obama not once but twice. 'Nuff said.

Danger, Will Robinson.

lyle, it is hard not to think that serfdom is planned for our future. There is a deep strain of very sick, very anti-human thinking going on in the Deep Ecology movement, some of which is motivating these people decrying modern complex society. There is a movement afoot to end all modern splendor, and semi-religious as it is, and feeding off fear and guilt, it is dangerous.

The problem is that the attitude diminishes our ability to respond to challenges in the future and they will come and they will wreak havoc on a weakened society.

Porchlight

lyle, I'm enjoying the comments at that WaPo story about AC.

Here's a particularly great one:

Defenestratus 12:09 PM CDT

Attn Mrs. Sniveling do-gooder.

I don't NEED air conditioning. I WANT air conditioning and fortunately, for the time being, I'm still able to get what I WANT and not only what I NEED. In fact, I just spent about $10k to install ductless mini-split systems in my home. That $10k is now trickling down the free economy.

Kindly quit preaching about what you think other people need. You have no idea what I need. I have no idea what you need - and nor would I claim the right to tell you what you need. Only totalitarians tell others what they need. I believe in the freedom of the individual to decide what it is he or she needs or wants.

jimmyk

ok so we kind of understand how he could be that stupid,

How to destroy your reputation in one easy lesson.

Lyle, they were still laughing from my mad cow joke, so it's hard to tell whether you got any laughs or not.

lyle

I know, jimmyk. You're one tough act to follow!

Here's the comment I would have left on that ignorant bint's column:

Hey, I'll stipulate that maybe you don't need AC, maybe I don't either. But you know what does need AC? Lots and LOTS of AC??

Server farms.

Do you have the slightest inclination of the connection between your stupid rambling and this fact? Of course you don't.

From a comment thread on Trump's Louisiana visit. I don't know if this is real, haven't had a chance to check, but holy cow. :)

Trump: "The President says he doesn't want to come, he is trying to get out of a golf game."

Tony Perkins: "I heard he wants to stay under par while we are under water."

Trump: "He will never be under par."

After my FIL retired from his real job, he spent about 10 years building custom clubs.

He actually built a few 1 irons for customers and put one in his bag, mostly as a novelty.

I used it exactly twice.

Jordan Kaplan, DNC finance director, is leaving after email scandal.

And Politico is the only outlet reporting this little Friday afternoon tidbit.

Porchlight

"A DNC official said that Rachel Rauscher, currently the finance director-at-large for the DNC, will take over Kaplan's responsibilities. But as the restructuring and rebuilding continues, Rauscher won't get Kaplan's title.

Fundraising for the party, with much higher donation limits than for an individual candidate, is traditionally a major force at the end of a national campaign cycle. That task has gotten even more complicated this year, with the data hack leading to questions about management and identity theft, and interim chair Donna Brazile spending much of her time on the job reassuring jittery members, donors and other stakeholders."

Yes it is.

And as Reagan's guy Mike Deaver taught us, the networks can yak all they want but the PICTURES tell the story and it is what the viewers remember.

And what they will remember is Trump looking like a damn president and being thanked by the people of Louisiana.

Don't forget there is a rally (with the new, improved Trump presentation) tonight in Michigan.

Oh, one more visual. Trump departing and is seen walking up the steps of his plane UNASSISTED. Guess who can't do that?
