That's ironic because I just spent the week in Boston, delivering a Yellow Lab puppy to my niece's family! He doesn't dance (yet), but he's SO much cuter.

Well well well, here we are, just three hundred hours from the most important election in a generation and Trump is (A) threatening Mexico, (B) threatening a nuclear arms race, (C) sounding the alarm over a migrant INVASION (!) and (D) warning his cult me (COUGH COUGH!!!) errr...supporters that Democrats will try to seize power in an illegal election.

Now we get a leaked memo that says Trump intends to mount major court challenges if the Republicans lose the midterms, which could prevent Congress from being seated for MONTHS on end, plus the distinct possibility of attempting to overturn the election altogether, close the border with Mexico, and declare martial law.

And yet most people seem to say that comparing Trump to Hitler is silly, just like most Germans thought it silly to think Hitler was any kind of threat. Yeah, I'm concerned and more than a little worried.

I have absolutely no doubt Trump will declare the election rigged, but I also have no doubt that nobody important will believe him. He'll get laughed out of any court he tries to file suit in. New Congressmen will take their seats in January and those defeated will leave quietly for their corporate board and think-tank "jobs".

Not the first time people couldn't take their seats. Al Franken had to wait seven months, you're far to cavalier about this.
I'll research it more and get back to you on it, hopefully you're right, but you might not be, and we might be knee deep in...."orange tapioca".

Baloney. 2016 might have been, 2018 certainly is not. The only thing liable to happen is that Dems flip the house. Even that is uncertain.

Polls are not showing terrific leads by Democrats, most every race is a toss up. All indications are that there will not be blue wave of any magnitude. Win or lose, after the election things will pretty much go on just as they are now. And in 2020 the same claim will be made about the generational importance of that election.

It'll be interesting to see whether truly horrible government will get out the voters though.

My prediction is 34-40 D pickup in House.

My attention this morning is on the bombs sent to Dem folks. Suspicious packages sent to Time Warner Center, Clinton and Obama - CNN.

I'm making a bet here: tonight Trump will imply, or blame, Democrats for today's bombings.

George Soros
Barack Obama
The Clintons
CNN Headquarters
Kamala Harris
John Brennan
Eric Holder
And now Maxine Waters.
