    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?)

      Maybe we can start a petition. I’ll join you!

      Can I write-in Chesley Sullenberger?

      • Larry Kelly

        Oh, if only.

  • gcblues

    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.

  • On my way to see the Chick Corea Elektric Band last night at the Blue Note, I saw two familiar faces. While in Penn Station, I could swear I saw Lisa Daftari walking by. And outside Blue Note, I’m certain I saw Buck Sexton walk by wearing earbud headphones while having a phone conversation.

    • carolr527

      Buck Sexton, owner of the Shaggin’ Wagon. Sorry, it’s an old Red Eye joke.

  • Larry Kelly

    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.

    • Cecelia

      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.

      • gcblues

        stop. you will hurt yourself. it is over. time to move to acceptance and the hard work of Borking.

        • Larry Kelly

          Not me. I still have a couple weeks to bitch. I’ll save the 12-step for after the election.

          • gcblues

            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.

          • Larry Kelly

            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.

          • gcblues

            i am sure it would require deadly sins for Trump to win over hillary. sorry. i am moving to the Bork view.

      • Nixon – niihpikiiookani

        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.

    • gcblues

      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.

      • Larry Kelly

        Poor dog 🙁

        • gcblues

          he loves his compost hole. he is a dirty dirty dog, he loves dirt more than anything else in the world

          • Cecelia

            Probably helps him to stay cool.

          • gcblues

            he wants to visit china and destroy everything.

          • Larry Kelly

            Tell him to circumnavigate the molten core.

          • gcblues

            i have never seen an animal dig so deep so fast. he knows he is in big trouble so before he gets gated up he moves as much as he can. dug up whole trees. put 3 wheelbarrows of dirt in the pool. he is crazy. he knows it. he feels guilty. but can’t help himself. maybe he needs the 12 step deal.

          • Larry Kelly

            We love our miners here in SE Ohio. Nothing wrong with dirt as a byproduct of work.

          • gcblues

            loves the feel, the smell, the power, the destruction.

      • Cecelia

        Give him some Benadryl.

        • gcblues

          why? he was stung or bit. not the first time, not the last.

          • Cecelia

            He’d more comfortable.

          • gcblues

            stop by and you try giving him a pill.

          • Cecelia

            His Aunt Cecelia would and could.

          • gcblues

            hahahahahaha. i ever tell about the 4 of us castrating him with double dose anesthetic? a prof from the ag school fortunately came over to help sort it out. for some reason he is incredible strong but does not really look it.

          • Cecelia

            It’s a good thing for you that you’re out of the country.

          • gcblues

            something done with work animals cc. we love him. we love the job he does. we tried to do it correctly and it did not work out so we got the best to come help. relax. he has very particular work to do and we count on him.

          • Larry Kelly

            Good for stings. In my medicine cabinet for that reason.

          • gcblues

            he really likes rubbing his nose on the concrete. he acts frustrated, no whine or pain. just bothered.

  • Cecelia

    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!

    • homemaker

      Nothing matters to Dems except “winning at all costs”. The people that would be nuked are the basket of deplorables and/or Republicans who HRC already hates. Her elite gang will be in a bunker that she shared via her new secret server.

      My country is gone and there are too many who don’t care.

      • Cecelia

        My quarrel about the election isn’t with Democrats per se, but with media coverage.

        • gcblues

          they seem to be consolidating themselves quite nicely.

          • Cecelia

            That might be the understatement of the season.

          • gcblues

            simply another socratic rhetorical device.

          • Larry Kelly

            Subtle is good.

      • gcblues

        i cared enough to get out a long time ago. now i worry about family left in the states. never ever ever put your passport in a safety deposit box. when you need to go you gotta git.

    1 MSNBC anchor gets cruelest, most awful online comments…about her hair.

  • carolr527

    What the heck did Megyn do to her hair? It looks like she got extensions on only one side of her head. She really needs a better stylist.

  • gcblues

    message from GWB: “you thought i was an idiot, and Obama in over his head, hahahhaha good luck America..

      Larry’s doog would make a better president than Obama.
