Saw the Rubio/Murphy debate last night on c-span. Rubio won the debate despite repeated attempts by Murphy and a moderator to link him to Trumpet. Rubio also said he would serve his entire six year senate term.

To be fair, Rubio said he doesn’t trust Trump with the nuclear codes yet still supports him for President. I think it’s completely fair for a moderator to try and parse out that kind of logical inconsistency. Shame on the Florida Democrats for nominating an absolute loser and blowing what could have been an easy win. Murphy is the same empty suit Rubio is. Neither have legislative accomplishments. Neither have real world experience. The attack on Rubio should be easy… “This is a man who has openly stated he hates being your Senator; he doesn’t show up for work; and… Read more »

Rubio says he has many disagreements with Trumpet but he has many more with Hilly. Strangely, Murphy would not criticize her for anything. Rubio realized his original immigration plan had flaws so he retooled. His current plan is more realistic and comprehensive. Does Murphy have a plan or is his plan the standard dem plan of citizenship for illegals? “but he has voted for anti-LGBT legislation” A mass murder by a terrorist and how one votes on LGBT legislation are separate issues. One issue I did disagree with him on was when he blamed Georgia for the water problems in… Read more »

A mass murder by a terrorist and how one votes on LGBT legislation are separate issues. I was pointing out how an anti-gay politician suddenly developed a heart for the LGBT community when it provided him with political cover to re-enter the Senate race. One issue I did disagree with him on was when he blamed Georgia for the water problems in N Florida. I thought the “we’re going to get the water and Georgia is going to pay for it” was a solid joke. Dems disagree with Rubio on many issues but they are more scared of his youth… Read more »

Clarification; Rubio’s foreign policy is somewhat similar to the dem presidential nominee’s foreign policy. I don’t know if Murphy has a foreign policy.

“Rubio also said he would serve his entire six year senate term.”

And you can take what Rubio says to the bank.

Let’s see, We’ll allow more FBI agents abroad if you lower the classification on The Peddler’s email. Squid-pro-quo! Ruh-Roh!!

It’s the other way around – a FBI agent (as in 1) hinted to State they could use more over sea staff while he was declassifying. The US congressman from Utah should actually read the notes in question (which he admitted to Fox yesterday he had yet to do) before getting all worked up by what his staff tells him. Yes the declassification protocol has been extremely screwed up for a few decades (if Albright, Powell and Rice are to be believed) as noted in congressional hearing over the last 18 months. Was she or her staff directly involved? In… Read more »

Busy day in Athens-Clarke on first day of early voting. There was a line at the door a full hour before opening. Wait time was about 35 minutes and 300 people voted by noon.

My favorite comment by an early voter: “I want to vote and then turn my media off for the next three weeks”.

How many of those 300 you reckon voted for Trump?

Sociopaths frequently use “gaslighting”. A good description for one of the Trump campaign’s main strategies and it’s most toxic legacy is gaslighting. Many people pronounced Pence the winner in the VP debate. Pence’s “victory” was all presentation and demeanor, while ignoring his gaslighting throughout the debate. The GOP’s rightward drift had been its primary problem. Gaslighting is a whole new type of trouble, and it’s normalization will be hard on Democracy. http://www.slate.com/articles/news_and_politics/politics/2016/10/mike_pence_won_because_he_was_shameless_about_denying_reality.html “I heard her say that she was there that day. I was there that day, I don’t remember seeing Hillary Clinton there.” – Rudy Guiliani gaslighting Clinton about… Read more »

I just got a second-hand report from a poll worker in Oconee that 583 people voted yesterday. We turn out to vote over here, 80 percent four years ago, and are solidly if not blindly gop, Romney 73 percent.

Not surprised. I don’t think he’ll have any trouble in GA at all. It all comes down to whether there is a genuine Silent Majority. It’s never materialized yet but who knows, this is a very different election.

Terri, I like the Catholic link. It’s the same one I gave Noway on Sunday… question is, did he read it yet?

You know I love you and Teri, right? Resend the link! I swear I’ll read it!

See WAY WAY up at the top of the Read, where it says “•Why the Catholic email “scandal” isn’t actually scandalous for most Catholics “…? yah that one, just click it and read it.

You were supposed to send something about Catholic voters, I thought.

I did on a post on Sunday when you when off on the Catholic vote… and then Terri used the same link. How is it that I don’t even have internet or cable back on at my house (day 11) and I’m more up to date then you are? Did you at least see todays Bloom County? (I’m guessing no.) 😉

Apologies if already posted, but here’s a very good video montage (by the contractor) of the demolition of the 1100-foot smokestack at Plant Branch on Lake Sinclair this past Saturday.

How will I ever know how far I am from Milledgeville? That was the point I could always tell my kids, “10 minutes or so”.

Yeah, we’ve got one in school at GCSU right now. It’s going to be weird not having it there.

What is your problem, E!? I link to an article that has salacious info on your gal and you hate me!!!??? You and many of the other Hilly apologists are highlighting every Trump negative piece with utter abandon!!! What an absolute candy a$$! Good Lord!!!! You shore can dish it out…

Couple of things. It’s Hillary not Hilly. You continue to look like an ignorant ass when you say Hilly. You linked to the national enquirer about Hillary being a lesbian? I don’t even know where to begin with that. Again, this makes you look like an ignorant ass. I don’t support Hillary. She is terrible. We should be talking about all of the Wikileaks emails right now and even the voter fraud link you posted below. But people like you gave us Trump so now we are talking about “grabbin ’em by the p—y” and having our nominee tell a… Read more »

Didn’t realize you were so sensitive there, Eiger! LMAO! Deal with it. The article lists mych more than just her alleged sexual preferences. And the Enquirer was spot on regarding Edwards, so that makes them potentially credible. And your obvious “ignorance” of the meaning of the word “ignorant “. Makes YOU look…….ignorant!!! Please continue to show your screeching displeasure when someone posts something negative about Hilly!

Eiger,

“but people like you gave us Trump” You may want to ask Norway who he voted for in the primary. Voters that voted for him in the primary “gave us Trump”. Most that vote for him in the general only support him because he is better than the dem nominee.

OK, I clicked on that link because I thought it would be kind of exciting if Hillary were lesbian or bi. Alas, I was disappointed. Here’s the money quote: “While I was there, I helped her slip out of a back exit for a one-on-one session with the other woman. It was made to look casual, leaving quietly [rather] that being caught up in the melee … but really it was for something presumably more sordid.” “Presumably?” That’s all you got!?!? Sheesh. Then later they say they have proof of a bunch of other stuff, but again it can be… Read more »

A doctors’ credibility lies with his patient care. A musicians credibility lies within their authenticity. An engineers credibility lies within their technical ability. A video documentary producers’ credibility lies within their honesty. O’Keefe has none, credibility or honesty. So yes, one can shoot the messenger in this case. He has proven himself to be willing to falsify information in order to advance his agenda. So even if something he reports were to turn out to be true, it’s going to take someone else – with credibility- reporting it for it to have any significance. O’Keefe’s legacy will be as an… Read more »
