I won't contribute to NPR again

There was an interview with Mara Liasson on NPR this morning. She was truly nasty in her discussion of the Comey scandal. You won't get harsh tone of voice, but here is the end of the piece......

LIASSON: Well, this really is "Back To The Future." The campaign started with the emails. It's ending with the emails. All the threads of the Clintons' 30-year political story seem to be coming together - the penchant for secrecy that led her to choose a private server; her penchant for defensiveness; her tone deafness and the way she initially dealt with this, which only exacerbated her image as dishonest and untrustworthy; and then the sex scandals that always seemed to dog the Clintons and the ongoing investigations that often end up turning something else. So it's all there, the messy drama that seems to always be part of the Clintons' story.

MARTIN: Mara Liasson, thanks so much.

LIASSON: Thank you.

I have never understood why NPR thinks Liasson, who is a FOX-shill, is a value to their operation.

Nina Turner refighting the primary on Brian Williams show

Williams seemed to lose interest when she started doing it.

CNN is pushing the email 'scandal' as overshadowing her FL rally with Gore

What nonsense!

Stein ad this morning on Morning Joe

The Green Party ran an ad during MJ this morning. Mentions how bad Trump is and then attacks Hillary at length (they are equally disastrous she says). Then says she'll cancel college debt and there will be free health care for all.

John Judis, Sanders voter, says Bernie Sanders should drop out and endorse Hillary Clinton. Period.


From Hullabaloo...Trump has the impulse control of a toddler

On CNN just a few minutes ago:

Jim Geraghty, National Review: This is only going to get worse for Republicans. There is no better Trump behind the curtain waiting to be unveiled sometime. He's not going to get more sensible or more constructive with his words. This is who he is. He has the impulse control of a toddler. And there's no reason to think "oh, by November he'll pull his act together" he'll stop making controversial statements. This is the Trump brand. White nationalism! Why would the Republican party ever want to be associated with this because they'll lose every swing state and every swing district.

“There’ll come a time when the love of country will trump hatred of Hillary”: Lindsey Graham tries to convince Republicans to dump Trump

Graham called Trump's attack on Judge Curiel "the most un-American thing from a politician since Joe McCarthy”


Andrea Mitchell on Rachel Maddow

Mitchell is whining about the AP and NBC News declaring Hillary the presumptive nominee because it will confirm for Sanders and Sanders fans who think the system is rigged. I wish she would just go away.

Sanders says in 2008 he didn't endorse a Democratic candidate prior to the convention

Who cares about what Sanders did in 2008 - he wasn't a DEMOCRAT.

Another delusion gem on Daily Kos:

"Bernie Lays out THE TRUTH on Superdelegates and Clinching the Nomination
by TobyRocksSoHard
But a funny thing happened on the way to the convention. On June 5th, two days after the voting was concluded and before Hillary had dropped out of the race, Sanders had something to say about the nomination...Sanders said he held off supporting either of the Democrats because he has made it a custom not to support any Democrat for the presidential nomination until the party had chosen its nominee."


Sanders warns the media about June 7 - the delusion goes all the way to the top

“Ahead of California, Sanders Warns Media Against Preemptive Coronation of Clinton”

Preemptive Coronation of Clinton
by Jon Queally, staff writer Common Dreams

Sunday, June 05, 2016

"I have reports that the media, after the New Jersey results come in, are going to declare that it is all over. That simply is not accurate."

"Addressing concerns that the media may preemptively announce his rival Hillary Clinton as the "presumptive Democratic Party nominee" even before she has won the requisite numbers of pledge delegates, Bernie Sanders over the weekend indicated that such reporting would be both wrong and irresponsible and held to his commitment to take his campaign all the way to the national convention when so-called superdelegates will finally—and for the first time, in fact—be able to cast their vote for who they believe will make the best nominee."
