I didn't see Loggy's post. But, as they say, great minds... And all that

Maybe they can introduce a "moral turpitude" exception into the convention rules.

Quote:
This is from Media Matters.
Donald Trump is redeploying aggressive rhetoric toward counter-terrorism in the wake of the Istanbul airport attack, talking about waterboarding and "much worse" techniques.

"We have to fight so viciously and violently because we're dealing with violent people," Trump told supporters during a Tuesday night rally at the Ohio University Eastern Campus.

He also said, "we have to fight fire with fire," and "we better get smart ... and we better get tough — or we are not going to have much of a country left.”


I would like to tell the Donald that we don't fight like terrorists because we are not terrorists. Most of us are against torture because most of us aren't sadists. If he ever were to have the power to implement these practices, he would't be able to leave the U.S., like ex puppeteer Vice President Dick Cheney and ex puppet President George W. Bush. Notice how they never vacation abroad?

Oh, and I have always found water to be a good thing for fighting fire. But should the Donald's hair ever catch fire, I hope someone hands him a match.

Trump gives me the willies. He doesn't represent me. He doesn't represent many people on my side.

Hillary gives me the willies too.

Bernie seems pleasant, but he's way too way out there for me.

Remember when The Donald promised to dish the feces on the Clintons and when he did, it was mostly about big speaking fees and how Hillary Clinton had accepted money from some source that could blackmail her?

Politicians of both stripes do that all the time. Even soon-to-be-The-Match-Game-Celebrity-Guest Sarah Palin made some decent money serving word salad. Heck, she even spoke in Japan after her vice presidential belly flop, didn't she? Big bucks, I'm sure.

Ex Senator, radio personality and failed presidential candidate Mike Huckabee and Rush Limbaugh BFF. ex Congressman, and failed presidential candidate Newt Gingrich surely just run to keep their speaking fees high. I mean, really, don't you think?

The Clintons are good speakers ... especially Bill. And so what if the Clintons made a lot in speaking fees. They're worth the money to those who can afford it. So, why the outrage? Jealousy?
