And our fool of a candidate can not even capitalize on this ripe, Oval Office disqualifying, low-hanging fruit.

Why i Hope Hillary's Lead Increases

Posted By Mark Costello III

Hello, Russ. You're right in that your evaluation reads "like a 3 bank pool shot" smile. Your estimate "I believe GOP voters will be so alarmed with an imminent Hillary win that they will show up in force to the polls and keep the Senate majority (which there is evidence of today) and the historic House majority" describes myself and my wife Laura- we're both preparing to vote for Evan McMullin for president and for Republicans for the other offices - but I don't know that it'll fit a lot of the GOP voters. If they turn out in force, many of them will vote for the Donald (a lot of people I work with and in my extended family fit this). Also, on the other hand, if a candidate takes a long lead, the story is that usually he - or she in this case - will grow coattails, sweeping their fellow party members into Congress. I'm certainly hoping THAT doesn't come true here....

At any rate, not voting for Trump is as far as I'll go. Just don't expect me to vote for Billary wink since it's bad enough that in not voting for Trump I'm probably effectively giving her half a vote sad .

Powell's EMAILS

Rod Kaufman said:

"Iranians can't use one if they finally make one," Powell wrote
"The boys in Tehran know Israel has 200, all targeted on Tehran, and we have thousands."
While that may sound reassuring, if the whack jobs in Iran favor death over life, is it really a deterrence?


On a related note, this character...
