Today’s Campaign Update
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)
It’s Election Day!: I will be live-blogging it all here starting at 6:00 p.m. Central Time. Please join me in the comments section for tons of fun as the results either make me look like the smartest guy on the planet or a damn fool. Could go either way.
Geez, put your clothes on, girl. – Nobody needed to see this, but I got sucker-punched by it on Monday so I don’t know why any of you should be exempt. Noted drunk and bad comic Chelsea Handler decided she could encourage Millenials, snowflakes and social justice warriors to get out and vote by…wait for it…posting a semi-nude video of…wait for it…HERSELF!
Not kidding. If you have a strong stomach you can see it at this link.
What is it about depraved leftist women like Handler, Lena Dunham and Amy Schumer that makes them think anyone needs to see them parading around nekkid? It’s one of life’s great mysteries that can only be ascribed to Trump Derangement Syndrome personified. In the flesh, as it were.
Speaking of depraved women… – Brenda Battel, a fake reporter for something called the Huron Daily Tribune, got caught on tape on Monday, and it is glorious in a very profane sort of way. She had called the line of John James, the single best-qualified senate candidate running anywhere in this cycle, to request an interview. She thought she had terminated the call, but it turned out her i-Phone didn’t quite function properly, which never, ever happens to anyone else, right? Right. Sure. Uh-huh. You betcha.
Anyway, after she thought she had terminated the call, this is what she said to some unidentified person in the room with her:
“Man, if he beats her… Jesus! F***ing John James. That would suck! Whew I don’t think it’s going to happen though,” Battel said.
Your fake news media in action, folks.
He was going for 100 but he was losing his voice. – No campaign in modern times could ever be complete without one final Obama “I, me, this guy” count. In a 46-minute speech before an audience of dozens who had no doubt been paid to be there, former President Barack Hussein Obama referred to his own self 89 times.
With Obama, it was always all about him. With Donald Trump, it’s always all about us. Big difference.
What’s with all these Democrats losing their voices? – Joe Biden was also losing his voice as he spoke to a “crowd” of dozens in Missouri on behalf of Sen. Claire McCaskill. There, Biden used the word “fight” about 7,000 times in his speech, which is what he always does. Because he fights. He’s a fighter. You got that yet? Biden fights.
So does Nancy Pelosi, and wouldn’t you love to see a cage match between those two? It’d be like one of those slow-moving old man skits Tim Conway used to do with Carol Burnett. Anyway, Pelosi couldn’t even drum up a live audience, so she did a podcast with some guy somewhere, and said this:
“We do not act the way they do. But I do think when you are in the area and somebody throws a punch, you’ve got to be ready take a punch and throw a punch.”
Meanwhile, Hanoi Jane can’t breathe. – Oh, no worries, she’s not going to the hospital or anything – she’s just being all dramatic and stuff, because, acting or something.
“The elections on Nov. 6 are the most important elections of my lifetime. So much depends on what happens,” said the actress. “It’s hard for me to breathe right now.” Yeah, you know, like all those U.S. soldiers caged up in the Hanoi Hilton were having a hard time breathing while she was paling around with Ho Chi Minh back in the day.
Good god, does anybody really care what Jane Fonda thinks about anything? Really?
Oh, hey, and Democrat spokesman Louis Farrakhan was talking on Monday, too! – The raging anti-Semitic Nation of Islam leader was over in Iran, where he was presumably trying to have lunch with John Kerry or something.
Anyway, while speaking at Tehran University (hey, wonder if they offer a degree in women’s studies there?), Farrakhan led the audience in chants of “Death to America” and referred to our country as “the Great Satan.” Because, you know, when in Spain, do as the Spanish do. Or something.
Finally, Ezra Klein, a Democrat with a press pass who pretends to analyze elections at the New York Times, issued possibly the most despicable tweet of the entire election season yesterday evening:
I don't think people are ready for the crisis that will follow if Democrats win the House popular vote but not the majority.
After Kavanaugh, Trump, Garland, Citizens United, Bush v. Gore, etc, the party is on the edge of losing faith in the system (and reasonably so).

So, this “election analyst” who has been confidently predicting a “Blue Wave” election for the past year is now hedging his bets and declaring it to be “reasonable” for Democrats to shun democracy if they lose yet again, but “win” something he calls the “House popular vote.” What an utterly idiotic thing to say.
What exactly is the “House popular vote”? Let’s remember that, in several states like California that have so-called “jungle primaries”, you have Democrats running against Democrats in many districts. How do you factor that into something called the “House popular vote”?
Let’s all note that Ezra Klein would have never even thought of writing that tweet were he not worried that his long-promised “Blue Wave” was coming up a little short of the shoreline. He’s worried, all right, and he’s signaling to his Democrat readers that it’s OK for them to just decide to take their ball and go home if this turns out to be yet another election debacle for their depraved party.
Just another day in Trump Derangement Syndrome America.
