Heh, Dave.

So Donna Brazille is a scummy liar? I guess I should have known by the D after her name.

I am fairly stunned about Doug Schoen. He was on Hannity after the news broke and was ranting that she was going to win and Shaun should deal with it. Maybe he had not taken his meds but it was a pretty obvious partisan display ( from a guy who tried to pretend he was a No Labels guy last election ). Something changed in 48 hours. What? Thorazine?

Porchlight

Someone with knowledge of the email content clued Schoen in, I guess.

James D

She was a scummy liar 20 years ago. Nothing's changed.

In terms of honesty, ethical behavior, or even competence at the actual duties of their jobs, pretty much everyone in the DC bubble is an utter failure by any possible standard, and in a sane world wouldn't be trusted with anything more responsible or complex than running a hot dog cart.

buccaneer morgan

Twenty eight years, James d, this is what passed for analysis at commentary.

Porchlight

Trump has been in CO, NH, NV, IA, ME, PA, OH, FL, NC, NM, and AZ in the last week or so. VA just before that. The guy's stamina is incredible.

Barbara

common man,

Schoen's attitude always seemed to me to be one of gleeful defiance. Sort of, "yeah, she's corrupt but she's going to be our next president," said with a great big smile on his face.

His backing away from her like he did was indeed 'stunning'. I don't know what they have or whether they will use it all, but it must be major, perhaps even treason.

common man

Which network employs or employed Brazille? They need to be held up for deserved ridicule. And the DNC should be told their spokesperson is a documented cheat and a bald face liar and they should think about if that is what they want everyone to think about each time she steps to the mic. "Think she is lying to us again, Earl?" What reason do we have to think otherwise?

James D

True, narc. I was thinking back to the Monica madness, but I forgot that Brazile dates back to the Dukakis campaign.

Miss Marple the Deplorable

JamesD.,

Funny you should mention hot dog cart, because Podesta and some pal of his keep talking about a hot dog stand in Hawaii.

I think there is a sexual connotation to that, according to some of the Reddit guys, but I am in the dark.

Captain Hate

Maybe Brazille and Rove can dance together into the sunset after this election. Good riddance to both.

Porchlight

And WI and MI today.

In the few stops she's made she's stuck to OH, NC, FL mostly, also IA and NH. The giant poll leads were BS and now they're gone too.

Happy Birthday Pagar, a favorite poster.
Hillary needs to go on the stump and keep playing the victim as Charles Lane says she is starting to do.
That is what we need another helpless ,smelly and psychotic person to serve as president like Obama did.

Captain Hate

GMax,

Brazille used to appear regularly on This Weak with Stephi.

This is CNN

And that is how she got the questions?

Happy Birthday, pagar.

That is 14 states in 8 days.
Tremendous energy and personal contact.
My sister went to the rally in Cleveland and there were 10,000.
Hillary's body language on Friday's press conference tells the tale.
I think she knows this is the beginning of the end.

Happy birthday pagar.

Happy Birthday Pagar!

Dave (in MA)

The Moonbatosphere is trying to console itself by forwarding around John Dean's Times OpEd that claims that this isn't worse than Watergate.

Captain Hate

HB Pagar; a Halloween birthday is very cool.

Here is wiki's rundown of the networks where Brazile's broomstick has landed:

Brazile is a weekly contributor and political commentator on CNN's The Situation Room and appeared on American Morning and its successor, New Day, and has regularly appeared on CNN Tonight with Don Lemon, and is a frequent member of Anderson Cooper's guest panel of political experts on CNN's Election Night Coverage. In addition, she is a contributing writer for Ms. Magazine and was a columnist for Roll Call. Brazile is also founder and managing director of Brazile and Associates and a contributor to NPR's Political Corner and ABC News. In 2004, Simon & Schuster published Cooking With Grease, Brazile's memoir of her life and work in politics. However, it was announced that Brazile had agreed mutually with both CNN and ABC to cut ties with the networks in order to serve as interim chair of the DNC.[22] It has yet to be determined if she will return to either network once her term as interim chair expires.[22]

Former Bush Ethics Lawyer Files Complaint Accusing FBI Director of Violating Hatch Act

http://lawnewz.com/high-profile/former-bush-ethics-lawyer-files-complaint-accusing-fbi-director-of-violating-hatch-act/

Hmmmm. Now, what could have compelled him to do that???

sbw

Just wait ’til they find the 18-minute gap in Hillary’s hidden taping system.

Come to think of it, it wasn’t the system, but one person with brass and backbone back then that made the difference.

Truthbetold5

The whole idea of this violating the Hatch Act is laughable

Old Lurker

Well MM. Paul Ryan used to drive the Oscar Meyers truck.

Paul Ryan is a dick.

So there is THAT connection.

Truthbetold5

And desperate

Barbara

They're grabbing at straws.

buccaneer morgan

The fact this prompted steadman to get from under his burrow at air bnb is all you need to know

common man

Right the Hatch Act. The FBI cant investigate wrongdoing and cant communicate with the US Congress.

Flop sweat desperation. Even Double Douchebag just mailing it in now...

common man

Trot out Eric Holder, who was censured by the House as your white knight. LOL

Captain Hate

Yes, narc; just reading Dean's wiki entry is a headache producing mass of contradictions although it's too bad he and Goober Graham didn't kill each other.

Matt - deplore me if you must

Pagar, glad to have had you here for so long. All the best!

The all in campaign against the FBI may be the death knell of the Left. Should something devastating be released they will have lost any advantage they have had.

They have shoved their agenda down the throats of the American people and now it is shown not as a Potemkin Village,which it is, but as criminal enterprise the likes of which have never been seen in our politics.

We know now beyond a reasonable doubt that the Clintons have been bought by a number of the oil states. Who else? The digirati are willing accomplices. Buffett and the other cronies we know. But there has to be more.

$2 Billion in campaign funds sloshing around, and the fraud that was evident in the Obama campaign would seem to indicate that there is more to the story.

Funny thing is that it all may have been for nothing. The greatest irony of them all.

Richard Nixon must be laughing his ass off wherever he ended up.

Barbara

Eric Holder. Now that should be fun.

Truthbetold5

Someone should be asking for all of Ambassador Stevens emails

I wonder if there are any yoga e-mails at all.

All this talk about Dallas and Zac Prescott is forgetting one important fact: Its not December yet.

fdcol63

Nixon was a piker compared to this. LOL

Happy Birthday, Pagar!

Luckily, Delta is on time today! Wish I had more time in ATL, rse.

buccaneer morgan

Nixon threatened too many applecarts, including the rockefeller's own fiefdoms, he set up his own to our regret, he was outside the decision-making of the fustercluck that was vietnam, and his adoption of temple's Malaya strategy might have worked, but the dems went scorched earth.

Captain Hate

Stedman has no sense of what people really think of him by weighing in on this, although at least he had somebody write it rather than mumble it in his irritating mush mouthed fashion.

DebinNC

Someone should be asking for all of Ambassador Stevens emails

Sounds commonsensical to me too, Tbt.

No wonder John Kasich has been so aggravated during this election.

If only WikiTapes could have shared with us the 18 1/2 minutes of Nixon's yoga discussion.

But would you eat their hot dogs? Naw, probably were scraped off the floor or dug out of a trash bin behind reputable hot dog stand.

Kallstrom's revenge?

“The Clintons, that’s a crime family. It’s like organized crime, basically. The Clinton Foundation is a cesspool,” James Kallstrom, former assistant director of the FBI, said in an interview with John Catsimatidis on WNYM-AM.

“It’s just outrageous how Hillary Clinton sold her office for money. And she’s a pathological liar, and she’s always been a liar,” he added. “And God forbid if we put someone like that in the White House.”

DebinNC

Bill Clinton had 3 OH event appearances on Saturday, Hillary has 2 today, and BOzo has one tomorrow.

The more people find out about Johnnycakes the worse he's gonna look. And it won't get any better because he can't keep his ignorant yap zipped.

fd-having grown up in atlanta I have had to take very few connecting flights in my life. My college freshman who will need to fly whenever she comes home and is in school near another hub for people going to and from elsewhere simply did not get that aspect of air travel. That she was competing for seats with people just passing through and that everyone on her flights did not, by and large, originate at the hubs.

Interesting when people who are terrifically bright in the intellectual sense are just missing life experiences we adults take for granted.

Deplorable Momto2

Happy Birthday, Pagar!

I feel rather dizzy after clicking around the internet today. I'm eagerly awaiting the big shoe drop, the smoking gun, the coffin nail, the silver bullet, the wooden stake, the chapter & verse, the red-handedness, that today or at least the next few days portend.

Yesterday we drove up into the N. Ga. mountains and saw oodles of Trump signs, H for prison signs, and nary a single H. sign. While grabbing a bite for dinner, a large table nearby was loudly and without inhibition discussing the likelihood of her inditement and election night loss. So, I drove home in a very good mood and loaded down with sacks of N. Ga. apples!

Joan

Ooh, Maryrose, I like that -- "...in a smelly world" -- yes, this corruption stinks to low hell (I won't use the common phrase 'high heaven' and sully it with contrast/comparison to people in Washington, DC.)

Truthbetold5

The Clinton Foundation could not operate without a great deal of complicit cooperation

Captain,

Is "Johnnycakes" Bill Clinton?

So Holder is responsible for the Airbnb heavy-handed mandatory policy that is going to destroy that company.

Been a long time since Troy Aikman was handing off to Emmitt Thomas. Somehow, Dallas has that going again.

Ok I plead ignorance - seagate? I don't get it.

This am Sabato was still clinging to his prediction that Hillary would only lose 1% because of the email investigation being reopened. What a doofus

Happy birthday Pagar. I'm sure there are pluses & minuses to having a Halloween BD

Joan, that would fit but I was using Kasich's nickname I lifted from Buckeye.

Our son in law is the organist at a large Presbyterian church in Atlanta, and played this as yesterday's postlude. Fortunately, the congregation must have a sense of humor as the response was very positive.

Joan @ 11:07

Absolutely not. But at least there'd be a limit to the harm they could do selling tainted hot dogs.

Thanks, Captain.

They played that Toccata at St. MARY'S OF Manhasset last night too. Love hearing live organ pieces.

Comey and the lack of urgency in DoJ

I can't keep track of the flood of news, but I'm sure I read somewhere that Comey was kept in the dark for a couple of weeks. If so, the story is not at all what J-Pod (or TM?) suggest.

More water than Watergate. (I think)

Captain Hate

If Curb Dive loses in a landslide, will Slick request round the clock in house Secret Service protection to keep him from falling and hitting his head on a desk fatally like Scarborough's intern?

Eric in Boise

More water than Watergate

Either that or a reference to Seagate Technologies, which makes digital storage for computers.

seagate? I don't get it.

Seagate is or was a major manufacturer of hard disks for PCs and laptops.

TM's title - Comey Versus The Slow-Walkers

An old Sowell article - Thomas Sowell: Telling the truth slowly

http://www.ocregister.com/articles/obama-376058-attack-administration.html

"Confidence men know that their victim – "the mark" as he has been called – is eventually going to realize that he has been cheated. But it makes a big difference whether he realizes it immediately, and goes to the police, or realizes it after the confidence man is long gone.

So part of the confidence racket is creating a period of uncertainty, during which the victim is not yet sure of what is happening. This delaying process has been called "cooling out the mark."

The same principle applies in politics. When the accusations that led to the impeachment of President Bill Clinton first surfaced, he flatly denied them all. Then, as the months passed, the truth came out – but slowly, bit by bit. One of Clinton's own White House aides later called it "telling the truth slowly."

By the time the whole truth came out, it was called "old news," and the clever phrase now was that we should "move on.""

Over & over the left uses this tactic.
Fast & Furious
IRS emails
Benghazi
Clinton emails
Sandy Berger...with him the MFM didn't even let Americans know a crime had been committed until the pathetic 'punishment' details had been worked out.

Thank you, Sue. Don't know where I got "Thomas'.

Correction Dept:
My earlier pasted-in thing falsely attributed the Seagate comment to Domenech when it was IowaHawk's tweet all along; he was responding to a Domenech tweet. We regret the error.

BeenThereDoneThat

Just think of all the people in high places who are terrified of HRC, and how once she's been incarcerated or incapacitated, will finally be able to speak out. I remember well the early years in the White House with the Clinton's. It's no mystery Hillary has never been fully confronted or prosecuted for her crimes - too many have been sucked into the vortex of fraud & bribery with her - willingly or otherwise and are very very afraid to go against her. That is why I brought up Seth Rich the other night...

Captain Hate

Prisongate not bad too...

I wish; and in a fair and just world it would surely happen, but I don't think that's realistic. I've hated the Clintoons since the first time I heard a lie ooze out of that hilljack grifter's mouth and have been incredulous that everybody doesn't feel likewise. The two of them have severely damaged the country maybe beyond the point of no return. Electing Trump is only the first necessary step to set things right and I'm not even sure that's enough.

Porchlight

USC/Dornsife site isn't loading for me. Weird, LAT shows what looks like yesterday's results but has today's date.

Matt - deplore me if you must

Lo lemme get this straight....

Comey all but indicted HRC a few months ago but didn't because of political pressure the likes of which have never been seen.

A huge stack of e mails is found that wasn't supposed to have existed. The number being thrown around is 650,000. It would have taken at least 500 monkeys writing on 500 typewriters at least 5 years to type 650,000 e mails.

Not only that, but some of those e mails relate to Weiner's wiener.

Huma seems to have been the bag lady for a lot of sub-rosa communications. Her e mail address must have been shhhdonotlookherewhateveryoudo@yahoo.com

We also are beginning to see corroboration from Wikileaks, which are denounced at lower and lower amplitude as more of the facts come out.

And somehow this is a Hatch Act violation. How about we look at the PAC's for some of the federal worker's unions first?
