Make her nose grow and it's perfect.

No wonder her head is spinning. she wants to hike taxes by $1.3T.

For once she's not dressed like a Star Trek diplomat at an intergalactic conference. If she dressed like that, I'd vote for her.

To paraphrase our first lady: for the first time in my adult life, I'm not really proud of my country.

Cooped up, tucked away, no press conferences...

Heeeeere is Hillary!

Beeyooteefull!

Let's get in Pissy's face and punch back twice as hard.

The firm of Lewandowski, Manafort, Scavino, Stone, & Ivanka schedule Trump rally on Maatha's Vinyaad just in time for Barry's vaca.

Ed is there really a Vineyard rally?

edutcher said...

Looks like they want to do it.

Read through Twitter comments, it's all pure shit.

Stinking, stale, degrading vats of shit.

I just now mentally/emotionally/visually transported to 9 years old to Pennsylvania exploring the the tiny radar base (that filled in a blank spot between mountains with radar) with my brother. We chanced upon waste processing site at the back edge of the base, consisting of three large rectangular pools full of stinking stale shit at various stages of degradation. The shit became less shittier pool to pool.

Then on the way back Barry points out, "That's deer shit, right there. That's rabbit shit right there. That's probably raccoon shit, I'm fairly sure." Barry was awesome. He knew everything. Truly, Barry was shit expert even at 11 years old. What a guy. He taught me so much imparting practical boy-knowledge every day.

Yes, reading Twitter comments on any given political subject is exactly like this, yes, Chip, I reaffirm to myself, that place is not for you. It's for other people to use. Let them have it. Keeps them out of real trouble. Now, go forth into the world and make your own kind of trouble.

I find Trump's rallies fascinating.

He says the same things repeatedly. The same goes with Milo Yiannopolous, They both have their act down.

I notice that Trump's rallies include more people behind him onstage the way that Hillary always does, indicating they have a lot of ordinary looking people for supporters. It's humanizing. Not just one guy pontificating.

Hillary speaks at people, Trump speaks directly to people.

It's odd. Trump's style is very close to Joe's style, also that same age group, also a salesman. He speaks in a natural way. It is fascinating to observe his adjustments to current events woven into his practiced positions. His followers, and I, understand what he is saying, how he says it even as pundits pretend that it's all quite incomprehensible and insane.

I'm also see a lot more pre-printed signs people hold up. (I'd rather they all be homemade and crude and unartistic showing true grassroots origin. Whatever.)

And I notice with Milo also makes the same points repeatedly.

Here's what I learned by observing Milo so much. He makes his harsh and brutal position statements softened by persistent gay charm. He makes cute faces indicating no lasting hard feelings even as he delivers damaging blows.

I cannot do that. I cannot stay charming like that. My impulse is bludgeon them bloody polemically making myself unattractive.

I must have watched some dozen Trump rallies now all the way through, and some dozen or so videos of Milo Y., and I must say that both of them have much to offer about public speaking, about getting one's point across by crossing the line and still flirt.

I really could use learning how to flirt.

In this interview it seems that the two men engaged with Milo know all of this too. They are both obviously familiar with Milo's positions. They've watched him as I've watched him. They know his material and the questions they ask are already answered many times in previous interviews. They're not so much interviewing Milo as feeding him his own policy positions back to him. There is nothing new in this interview. Not one bit, and yet the whole thing is still fascinating to observe. Recommended.

HRC has the most bizarre facial expressions caught on tape or photo. She's always so exasperated at everything from the looks of it.

The peasants keep getting in her way.

Having spent time on MV, Trump would have to fly and ferry in folks, otherwise he'll just have liberal hecklers. You could fire mortar rounds into Edgartown and Vineyard Haven and not hit a Republican.

Sixty Grit said...

Mrs. Clinton referred to Trump as her "Husba-er-opponent". Fascinating insight into how that brain damaged old harpy stores words in her damaged brain - opponent and husband are in the same location.

ndspinelli said...

Now that few people smoke, making ashtrays almost obsolete, I wonder what the sociopath throws @ Bill when she's pissed.

Sixty Grit said...

Huma.

Yeah, but it's a little like landing 500 Commandos in France and blowing up the Normandie dock. It just shows you can do it when you want.

Vases IIRC. And Willie is the sociopath, she's the psycho.

edutcher said...

This could be cool.

Cacklepants agrees to her first presser in 8 months, no white guys allowed.

edutcher said...

And it looks like The Donald was right again.

Turns out there may be a vid of that Iran payoff.

Martha Vinyard is the one of the wealthiest vacation spots in the USA. And you won't find a Repub - as nick said - unless he's hidden a closet somewhere.

Just more evidence the Democrats are the party of the Rich and the Poor and making war on those of us in the middle.

Lefties vacation on MV. The right-wingers go to the more drab island of Nantucket.

Evi L. Bloggerlady said...

R&B, Nantucket is hardly drab, but people keep to themselves. It is not as much open partying as MV. And way less posers. Aesthetically I prefer Nantucket.
