DNC Leak Protester Ejected From Hillary Rally

Tim Kaine


This election is such a mess.

The Democrat Establishment and their media mouthpieces must answer for this.

You Can't Always Get What You Want

As the balloons and confetti fall, the song choice is very fitting: "You Can't Always Get What You Want."

Yup. So true.

What a way to end the convention!

I said the exact same thing the other day.

Trump Accepts

Charlie Sykes and Ann Coulter Interview

SO entertaining.

Charlie Sykes interviewed Ann Coulter.

I suspect the audio will be highlighted on the 620 WTMJ website. If not, the interview took place during the first half of the third hour of the show.

He stayed true to his recent MSNBC form.

He started off the interview by calling Coulter a racist.

I loved her response. She defended herself and said, "F U."

Sykes responded by commenting on Coulter's thin skin.

Yeah, Sykes has gone totally MSNBC native.

He managed to exhibit more self-control during his interview with Wisconsin Lt. Gov. Rebecca Kleefisch yesterday, but he was still snarky at times.

Clearly, with Coulter, Sykes wanted more of that national Lefty acceptance by attacking Coulter with the Left's favorite assault - RACIST.

Referring to her support of Trump, Sykes said Coulter "went nuts." She countered that he "went nuts."


Later, in response to more of the Sykes drivel, Coulter said, "You are pulling out every cheap trick."

It was hilarious to hear Sykes be surprised that she would take offense to his Leftist attacks.

HE CALLED HER A RACIST, and then did take it back, to which she replied, "Thank you."

Then there was discussion of the title of her new book, In Trump We Trust: E Pluribus Awesome!

Sykes commented that she replaced God with Trump, as if she has given up her Catholicism for Trump, worshipping a false idol.

That may have been what elicited the "cheap trick" comment.

How many instances of "In [fill in the blank] we trust" are there? Does "In cheese we trust" sound familiar? Yes, it's funny, not a literal refutation of God.

Good grief.

I enjoyed the interview. It was a microcosm of the divide in the Republican party - the drift to the Left (Sykes) and the swing to the Right (Coulter).

Absolutely delightful.


Here come the Sykes retweets!

Coulter is evil! Is that worse than racist? Same? Not sure. I know it's not good.

Oh. Commenting on Coulter's body, mocking her weight? Is that out of line and being a bit disrespectful to a woman? Kind of Trump-ish?

Washington Post Tweet: Helen Thomas Dies

Look at this screen shot from Twitter:

Dated "Jul 21, 2016," some people on Twitter are confused and rightly so.

Ms. Thomas died three years ago.

To its embarrassment, Twitter links to the Huffington Post story with a 2016 date.

Oh, Twitter.

Mike Pence: RNC Speech (Video)

Well done, Governor Pence.

Jimmy Fallon: Hillary Apologizes for Email Scandal

JIMMY FALLON: Hillary Clinton is struggling to finally put the whole email scandal behind her. She actually opened up about it during an interview with Charlie Rose this week. She said she's very sorry, that she made a mistake, and that it was the wrong thing to do. Hillary said it was actually easy apologizing, after hearing Bill do it every day for 18 years. 'Good morning. I'm sorry.'

Charlie Sykes: MSNBC Contributor

Charlie Sykes, recovering liberal, has officially relapsed.

He's giving MSNBC, home of Brian Williams, and the Leftists exactly what they want - assistance in getting Hillary elected.



Betrayal might be more fitting.

Good Lord, he's gone to the dark side.

The "orange Kool-aid" remark was from Tuesday.

Wednesday's appearance is not online. I'm sure he'll post that video link.

Sykes seems to be relishing his role, retweeting comments from those enjoying his promotion of Hillary.

Not helping. At all.

Ted Cruz: BOO

Compare Scott Walker's time addressing the Republican National Convention and the Ted Cruz disaster.

It could not have been easy for Walker to sing Trump's praises, but he understands the stakes. He gets that a Hillary Clinton presidency is unthinkable. Walker and others have the maturity to accept that reality and move forward accordingly.

Unfortunately, others are too ego-driven to do the right thing.

Helping put Hillary in the White House is NOT the right thing.

Ted Cruz chose to be less than unifying. He chose to stroke his ego.

That was not the right thing. It was selfish. Even Bernie Sanders managed to suck it up and endorse Hillary.

Cruz wouldn't endorse Trump. That was a mistake.

He didn't even choose to use language similar to what Ronald Reagan used regarding President Gerald Ford in 1976.

In his convention speech, Reagan said, "We must go forth from here united, determined that what a great general said a few years ago is true: There is no substitute for victory, Mr. President."

That was no endorsement, but it was more gracious than what Cruz offered.

He attacked Clinton and Obama, but didn't extol the virtues of a Trump presidency. In fact, he seemed to go out of his way to avoid the reality that Trump is the Republican nominee.

"And to those listening, please, don't stay home in November."

So far, so good. It appeared the endorsement was on its way.

"If you love our country, and love your children as much as I know that you do, stand and speak and vote your conscience, vote for candidates up and down the ticket who you trust to defend our freedom and to be faithful to the Constitution."

"Vote your conscience"? "Up and down the ticket"? That's no endorsement.

Cruz seemed to respond to the negative reaction he was receiving by adding this to his speech: "We will unite the party. We will unite the country by standing together for shared values, by standing for liberty."

He failed to say we would unite to elect Trump and prevent Hillary from winning. He failed to promote victory, as Reagan did.

Scott Walker did a far better job. He swallowed hard and gave his support to the nominee. His remarks may have helped his political future. He didn't sell out, but he correctly recognized that Hillary in the White House is the worse option, something the Never Trumpkins won't do, stubbornly sticking with their hissy fit stance.

Cruz, unlike Walker, didn't help himself. He lacks the Reagan finesse. Cruz came off as bitter and defiant, whereas Reagan delivered a clear message that was strong and hopeful without the bitterness: "Vote Republican, that means for Ford, and I'll see you in four years."

Cruz's miscalculation was choosing the convention to maintain distance from Trump and avoid taking the opportunity to present a united front, even reluctantly.

It would have been better for Cruz to not address the convention if he couldn't bring himself to say "President Trump" at some point.

What an embarrassment that Newt Gingrich was given the task to "clarify" Cruz's remarks before beginning his own address! Immediate spin. Not a bad effort, but still embarrassing.

Cruz must know that President Hillary Clinton would be bad for the country. He must know that Trump would be better than Hillary.

If "freedom matters," as Cruz said, if he really wants to be "part of something beautiful," then Hillary can't be allowed to become president. It's as simple as that.

Life is about choices. Make the best choice given the options. That would be Trump.

I'm not happy about that, but that's the choice.

Sometimes, reality is unpleasant.

Hillary Clinton and Supreme Court Nominations

The thought of Hillary Clinton nominating Supreme Court justices should send every conservative-leaning person running to the polls to vote against her.

End of story.

If Hillary becomes president, kiss the Constitution goodbye.

Apollo 11: 47 Years Ago Today

It was 47 years ago today that the United States of America completed perhaps the greatest achievement in human history.

The stuff of dreams, man walking on the moon, became reality.

What's it like to look up at the moon and know your footprints are there?

Neil Armstrong was the first man to walk on the moon, the first human being to step on its surface.

Billions of people have lived and only one person was the first to set foot on the moon - Neil Armstrong.

It takes a truly remarkable individual to move forward with one's life with dignity and grace after that heroic, historic accomplishment.

It takes a great, great country to achieve something so amazing.

I take pride in knowing that America once was so great. My country, my home, was exceptional. We could do anything.

RNC House Band Plays Bowie's 'Station to Station'

Of course, even the music played at the Republican National Convention is coming under criticism.

Using music without the artist’s permission has been such a hallmark of the 2016 campaign season that it would have been surprising if the Republican National Convention hadn’t added a couple more items to the list.

True to form, however, the first night of the RNC featured a number of odd and/or unauthorized soundtrack selections. As many outlets have reported (and as you can watch above), Republican nominee Donald Trump took the stage to the strains of Queen‘s “We Are the Champions” — despite guitarist Brian May‘s earlier insistence that the surviving band members didn’t approve the use of their song.

Social media jumped all over Trump’s “Champions” moment, with many users pointing out that the Republican platform, Trump’s immigration stance and the political record of Trump’s VP pick, Indiana governor Mike Pence, aren’t exactly in step with Queen’s background or overall message. (Even Sting wasn’t pleased; TMZ has footage of him saying late singer Freddie Mercury would not approve.)

Still, that might not have been the oddest musical performance of the day.

Yahoo! Music also notes that the house band played David Bowie‘s “Station to Station,” which — as the report points out — includes the line “It’s not the side effects of the cocaine / I’m thinking that it must be love.”
Artists objecting to their songs being played at Republican events - so what else is new?

"Station to Station" is an odd choice, but it would be weird at the Democrats' convention, too. At least I hope it would be considered a bad idea. Would Grandma Hillary approve?

Here's video of the band performing "Station to Station":

All this stuff is so silly. Really, who cares?

Jimmy Fallon: Hillary Campaigns in Vegas, Gambles with National Security

JIMMY FALLON: Hillary was actually campaigning in Las Vegas today, which is crazy because usually when Hillary gambles it involves national security.

Jimmy Fallon: Republican Convention Themes Each Night

JIMMY FALLON: Of course, the convention is going on all week; and I saw that actually it has a different theme each night. That's right. The themes are denial, anger, bargaining, depression, and acceptance.

Jimmy Fallon: Melania Trump Speech

JIMMY FALLON: Trump's campaign manager Paul Manafort said today that Melania's speech was similar to Michelle Obama's because they must feel the same way about their families. And Melania said, 'Yeah, especially my daughters Sasha and Malia.'

Garry Marshall R.I.P.

Rest in peace.
