    Another week, another opportunity for the Donald to make a fool of himself…

    The latest, according to the N.Y. Times, Herr Drumpf has declared war with Matt Borges, the Ohio Republican State Chair, whom Trump has accused of being more concerned about the national chair race this winter than the election in 3 weeks.

    Why on earth would the Donald want to be getting along with Republican party leaders in a state like Ohio three weeks before the election?

      "Why on earth"?
      Because he is running a scorched earth campaign.

      Or, as a much more eloquent writer than I wrote: "Donald Trump has virtually stopped trying to win this election by any conventional metric and is instead stacking logs of grievance on the funeral pyre with the great anticipation of setting it ablaze if current polls turn out to be predictive."

      Or…

      The Republican chair in Ohio had a nice rejoinder – he wasn't going to let the opinion of a staff member disrupt planned efforts for Republican candidates up and down the ballot. A  bit of a burn on the Trump Ohio chair, a commitment to professionalism and institutional loyalty, … and in all likelihood, another salvo in the war between the Grand Old Party and the Grabbing Others' Pussies factions;

    Over the weekend, Real Clear Politics moved Nevada U.S. Senate race from R to D on their map with no toss up states, giving the new Senate a 50/50 seat allocation. And that assumes that NH and NC stay in the GOP column – which is far from certain t happen.

    Vice President Kaine may be busy breaking tie votes come January. 

    Meanwgile, the Electoral College map with no toss-up states looks like Obama's map in 2008 except for Indiana and Iowa which would go to Trump.

    So if Clinton is nominated McCain's plan is not  to allow anyone she nominates to be confirmed to the Supreme Court. So we'll just start with 8 and reduce the number from there for the next 4 to 8 years? They didn't even  do that to Obama. So they hate a Clinton more than the black guy? A woman more than the black guy? WTF is the matter with these people.

    And then there's the Trump supporter who claims he, as a patriot  will "take care" of Clinton if she's elected.

    It's time for every leading Republican Party patriot to denounce Trump's increasingly hysterical rhetoric about the election being stolen and to denounce all support, including voting, for this evil piece of crap right now, today.  

    They have been allowing this hate and fear mongering to continue unchecked ever since Obama won his first election and if Clinton wins and anything happens to her, history will hold the 21st century GOP 100% responsible.

    This is nuts and it's entirely the GOP's fault for believing they could control the crazies and use them for their own ends while tolerating the hate rhetoric, the gorilla cartoons, the attacks on Obama's legitimacy, the attacks on the rights of minorities to vote with their fabricated threats of massive voter fraud and all the rest for 8 long years.

    Enough is enough.
