  1. Donna Brazile PUBLIC Tweet
    “Under President Obama, the economy has experienced a record 70 straight months of private-sector job growth. Over 14 million jobs!” Brazile tweeted almost exactly one month before she sent her following email to Podesta.

    PRIVATE Email
    “I think people are more in despair about how things are—yes new jobs but they are low wage jobs,” she admits. “HOUSING is a huge issue. Most people pay half of what they make to rent.”

    I nominate Wikileaks for the Pulitzer Prize in Journalism. (Can I do that?… No?)

  2. i return from my sojourn escape the stink of wed nite for a link that is not dismal. the link cat does not fail. Jennifer Griffin should remind us all that despite greatest effort, strongest heart, mind and body, nobody can “have it all”. Jen, your kids will likely be of much more historical importance than this ignorant stupid classless election and the 2 clowns in the center circle. go home.

  3. Watched CBS THIS MORNING where all three hosts had attended last night’s Al Smith Dinner and (see Mr. Concha) were oh so butt-hurt.) First guest was the lesser half of the Halperin-baldguy Team who still feigning butt-hurt from the debate “accept the results” bogus controversy. Waited for the local weather and news segment and turned off the TV. Tried to teach doog to mop kitchen floor without success.

    • Well, if you can’t get butt-hurt over a Secretary of State blithely mishandling classified email and shrugging at the notion of electronic security, and a Dept. of State official asking the FBI to lower the classification on email after it has been subpoenaed by a congressional investigative committee….of course you’re going to get butt-hurt over the ginned-up concern that Trump won’t voice concession after losing and might try to sue somebody (good luck with that, there will still be an inauguration…) and that he told graceless jokes at a dinner (as did Clinton).

      Please allow the dominate media to have its priorities ala having less concern over substance than does Sean Hannity, and every bit as much the partisanship.

          • considering what it would would take for HRC to lose it quite possibly is sinful to even have those thoughts. you might ask your priest and let us know what he says.

          • I’m not Catholic, but have a good friend who is a priest and paid me a visit at the ICN when I was teetering. I’ll ask Father Phil.

      • What really got me is the Crazy Old Bag Lady from Chappaqua blurting out nuclear secrets. She is either careless or mentally unfit. I report, you decide.

    • ate our first fig today, should left on 1 or 2 more days. dog got stung again in the compost hole he is cleaning the patio rubbing his nose on the concrete and sneezing.

  4. “I take the line that somebody said from Vince Lombardi, ‘He doesn’t discriminate – he treats us all like dogs.’ That’s my view on all politicians.” Wallace

  5. This is great… Military brass complained to the Clinton Camp because in a debate, Mrs Clinton glibly uttered what the military says is UBER classified info on the unalterable wait time between the order to launch a nuke and it being launched.

    The Clinton Campaign countered by finding info within the public domain that speculated or extrapolated the time period.

    As though this is equal to the information being disseminated by a Secretary of State!
