So yesterday the video was released of Donald Trump advocating just walking up to women and, to use his words, grabbing them by the pussy. This is particularly damning because Trump has sold himself as a straight shooter who won’t play any PC games. Now it’s clear he does have a filter and does present [Read More…]
A video from 2005 has shown up where Trump forgot he had a microphone on and was caught talking about his approach to women, including Arianne Zucker who he was meeting to shoot a cameo on Days Of Our Lives. The short of it: the Donald kisses them without waiting and has no qualms with [Read More…]
GOP’s official website declares Pence the “clear winner” of the VP debate hours before the debate happens.
Well, this is awkward. So, the Vice Presidential debate is in a couple hours. Mike Pence and Tim Kaine will have at each other for a couple of hours and then, after it’s over, the American people will decide who won.

Trump’s terrible, horrible, no good, very bad week will probably hurt Mike Pence in tonight’s VP debate.

But over time my [Read More…]
I absolutely love Obama in the last year of his presidency: The Obama administration has proposed a new rule that would prevent states from defunding Planned Parenthood or any other family planning provider for political reasons. The new rule, which the Department of Health and Human Services proposed last week, says that states cannot withhold [Read More…]
538 – Biggest election predictors: less religious/more educated favor Clinton, more religious/less educated favor Trump.
I feel like I need to introduce a new feature column on the blog: Shit You Could’ve Guessed. In our hypothetical new column, our first post would be that the crew at 538 have determined that more education and less religion generally lands someone in the Clinton camp. The corollary tends to support Trump. If [Read More…]
