Look – it could happen. And Hurricane Matthew could pull out of North Carolina over that state’s bathroom law. Before the emergence of Trump vulgar comments about women on Access Hollywood dominated the news cycle, Bill Clinton’s characterization of Obamacare as “the craziest thing in the world” was making headlines. To put Bill Clinton’s statement into perspective, he’s […]

Remember those movie scenes where the tough cowboy throws down a couple of swigs from a bourbon bottle, then bites on a bullet as Doc Adams starts cutting? Here in Casa del Rapkoch we’re all breaking our teeth as the election pulls up. When Marshall Vulgarian rode a bus into town as he frothed at […]

What trends can be teased out of the most recent state polls? According to Real Clear Politics, Clinton holds a +12 lead over Trump in Oregon. Trump, on the other hand, holds +12 lead over Clinton in Tennessee. In North Carolina, Corrupt is in a statistical tie with Crazy. If Trump and Clinton voters agree […]

Its been another month and its time to go back and check the polls to see how Trump is doing in comparison to his 2008 and 2012 predecessors. Has he finally risen above the McCain Standard? Is he doing better than Romney did? What are Trump’s chances of winning? Is the current polling fitting a […]

Still Stunned

 

I hoped taking a day’s break from the debate would provide some much needed impetus for creative writing. It hasn’t. I’m disgusted, had enough and tired of it all. The debate offended everyone’s intellect, especially those who actually know things. Both candidates made profoundly idiotic and patently false statements. While each raced toward the bottom they jettisoned whatever dignity was left of the American electoral process. Furthermore, their sycophants continue to insult our intelligence by proclaiming what our lying ears and eyes didn’t hear and see.

Note to the travel weary, fast-food inhaling surrogates who have sold their souls to the devil who pays most: Who the hell do you think you are? Your candidate dishonored themselves and their party and appears to be preaching to their lowest hanging pliable demographics.

The First Presidential Debate

 

Not since Godzilla fought King Kong have people so anticipated the confrontation between a radioactive lizard and a brutish ape. The first presidential debate was billed to me by various news sources as the culmination of the campaign a TV event that could rival and surpass the Super Bowl. Naturally I was curious to see it, and like some people who watch NASCAR I was secretly hoping to see something (or in this case someone) crash and burn. I think my first and overall impression of the debate was that while at times spicy it really seemed very conventional overall. So if you didn’t see it, but have kept up with the news of the campaign you aren’t going to see anything new by watching it. Save yourself the 1.5 hours. That said I will go into a more detailed set of impressions about this debate.

First off, I would just like to put my cards on the table here. I am one of those scurrilous people who for a lack of a better term is a NeverTrumper. I don’t like the guy or his policies. I also don’t like Hillary Clinton and I have no plan to vote for her. In fact right now I am likely to vote for no one for president (or maybe Evan McMullin if he is on the ballot in IL, but then again I repeat myself). A recent post by @claire asked us what if anything Trump or Hillary could say at this debate that would change my mind to vote for them. Well whatever that thing was none of them said it. As is my wont I will break this down by the two candidates and give you my impressions of each and how they did.

Did you know that a vote for Gary Johnson is a vote for Hillary? Or that a vote for Jill Stein is a vote for Trump?  All of this is very interesting until you realize that a vote for Trump is a vote for Hillary. Just as Utah’s death row inmates may choose between lethal injection and firing […]

Household income for 2015 rose 5.7%, the first increase in eight years as Obama’s deft economics policies finally pay off. /sarc I just saw this and I haven’t seen any commentary that explains it to my satisfaction yet. I may update this tomorrow. I’m the last person to believe there’s collusion with the government data chuggers and the […]

Welcome to the Harvard Lunch Club Podcast — the (Basket Full of) Deplorables edition – with nanophycisist Mike Stopa and radio talk host Todd Feinburg. Our topics:

  1. Hillary engages in deplorable hate speech, calling half of Trump supporters “racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamaphobic, you name it.” Is this a campaign killer?
  2. Trigger warnings and reaction to the University of Chicago’s War on Triggers.
  3. Hillary collapsed Sept. 11, but didn’t hit the ground when she was caught by members of her Secret Service detail.

Find us online at harvardlunchclub.com, on Twitter @HLCpodcast, and at Ricochet.com as part of the Ricochet family of podcasts.

It’s the Harvard Lunch Club Podcast for September 6, 2016 – the Hillary’s Immigration Wall edition. We are nanophysicist Mike Stopa and radio talk host Todd Feinburg and this week we are discussing:

Note: Rent-seeking is an economics term that means rigging things so that you get benefits from the economy without contributing productivity to the economy.

Trump Train in Ohio It’s something of a political cliche to hear during presidential elections, “As Ohio goes, so goes the nation.” The American voter is quadrennially reminded that no Republican has ever won the White House without winning Ohio. My fellow Buckeyes are subjected to a constant barrage of ads, phone calls, mailings, and […]

Trump: Putin’s Manchurian Candidate?

 
The Daily Beast

The Daily Beast

In light of the DNC hack (which digital signatures point to Russia), we would expect the Democrats to divert attention from their embarrassing emails confirming Trump and Bernie’s accusations of a ‘rigged system’. Schadenfreude for the Right, indeed.

  The American electorate faces a difficult choice – I get it. Now that both parties’ primaries are over and the general election is finally upon us, it seems unfair that Americans must choose between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton. But talk about a good problem to have! When growing anxious or depressed over this […]

It’s not everyday you visit an artist sitting on a Tyrannosaurus Rex sized poop. We see political art in different forms; Michael Ramirez‘s devastating cartoons, Roman Genn‘s insightful National Review cover art, and there’s what’s been called ‘street’ or ‘guerilla’ art by Sabo. Good political artists can take controversial or divisive issues and cause people of all ideological […]
