    Bennet may vote against TPP        “In the short term, it’s dead, anyway,” our brave and principled senator said.

    (I think this was the same rationale he used to claim that he would fight to his political death for the public option in health care – after it, too, was dead with no chance of revival.)

    Bennet didn’t rule out voting for a future version, perhaps titled differently. I’d suggest truth in advertising: CRTW, for Corporations Rule The World.

    Republicans have their Frankenstein monster in Donald Trump. Trump should ruin the Republican brand for many years, and Democrats should not hesitate to take advantage of their scurrilous behavior and destructive policies.

    Now the Roger "Sexual Harasser" Ailes Fox News/Republican Party Frankenstein monster is turning on its own:

    Sean Hannity does not like criticism. 

    The Fox News host attacked coworker Megyn Kelly on Wednesday night for having the nerve to suggest that he lobs softball questions at GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump

    Speaking on her show, “The Kelly File,” she said: 

    “Donald Trump, with all due respect to my friend at 10 o’clock, will go on Hannity and pretty much only Hannity and will not venture out to the unsafe spaces these days, which doesn’t exactly expand the tent for either one of them. There. That’s my two cents.”

    Hannity ― who has said he’s “not a journalist,” admitted he goes easier on Republicans and has been actively cheerleading for Trump ― didn’t take it well: 

    Couldn't happen to a nicer bunch of assholes.

    The Denver Post has endorsed Scott Tipton for a fourth term.  Consider this brilliant reasoning:

    We were concerned by the fact…that Tipton approached the conflict over fracking on the Thompson Divide with a bill drafted almost entirely by the company hoping to develop that land.  Making matters worse, SG Interests and individuals associated with the company holding leases on the Thompson Divide contributed almost $40,000 to Tipton.  …Tipton argues that it's common to start the legislative process with a bill drafted by a special interest…. We wish he'd relied more on his staff to develop a starting point. …There's no question Tipton's Democratic opponent, Gail Schwartz, is a worthy adversary."

    Obviously, the key word for their conclusion is: "Democratic".  I fully expect similar BS when they endorse Mike Coffman.

    Clinton’s Electoral College Lead Regenerates

    "That’s because Colorado and Virginia, two growing, highly-educated states that George W. Bush won twice, have never looked all that promising for Trump. A few pre-debate polls showing those states closing were probably a mirage, and more recent surveys have shown Clinton building a bigger lead. Given the demographics of this election — Trump running stronger with non-college whites but losing ground with white college graduates and potentially nonwhite voters too — both of these states should end up voting more Democratic than the national average. They move from Leans Democratic to Likely Democratic. One interesting development in Colorado is that Democrats have taken a lead in statewide party registration for the first time in three decades, and this also will be the first presidential election with all-mail voting in the state."

      Well as Mike Pence indicated, you can't believe a word out of Donald Trump's mouth, and if you do, well, he didn't really say it anyway, despite it being recorded on video.

      Which is why Trump is leading the GOP ticket.

    Yes, and if you are shot to death, it is usually a gift from the NRA.

    Has Rev. Rafael Cruz opined yet on whether Matthew is God's revenge on the State of Florida for voting for Drumpf in March over Marco and Ted? Inquiring minds want to know…
