So Elizabeth Warren has a teeny bit of Native American blood in her. Why is this a big deal, or a deal at all? We try to break that down on today’s podcast, after which we take up the war between white supremacists and Antifa on the streets of the Upper East Side and the very, very confusing polls. Give a listen.

    How is this election a chimera?

    I think we’re going to be pleasantly surprised by election results. In their zeal of blue wave enthusiasm the democrats have nominated a slate of very flawed candidates. Not just Sinema giving her seat to McSally, but also Beto, and Menendez. Forget about the fundraising, that’s money coming out of NY and Hollywood, its all being misdirected. Beto who’ll loose by 10 points has raised 10s of millions from Hollywood fools, and mistakes his funds with votes.

    IF 2016 has taught anyone anything is that money cant buy elections. Jeb! raised a $100 million dollars, and ended up with 3 delegates at the convention.

    I think republicans will win a nice majority in the house, say 53 to 55 seats.

    Menendez is in trouble, I think #Metoo could up catch up with him – I think they’re running ads now about his use of underage hookers. I know NJ is supposed to be used to political corruption, but I wonder if they draw the line at underage girls? RNC should be spending money here – and nationally – to link all democrats to Menendez, if not formally at least by association – just like democrats do with every bad republican candidate. Maybe the questions starts to get asked “Hey! Mr Nelson, Ever party with Bob?” Smear all democrats with his fundraising scandal. Its only fair.

    Where I have uncertainty is ND, MT and FL. I think the charge of being an establishment democrat is quite damaging and sticks to both democrats in ND, MT – but will it get them out? Maybe 1, Heitkamp, but Tester has kept a lower profile. He maybe able to squeak by.

    Does an octoroon rank higher than a quadroon?
