      The markets are crashing become they finally realized that the senile Trump is too incompetent to handle a global pandemic. Via Vanity Fair: “Even if Congress provides additional funding, there remain fears that the Trump administration has already hamstrung it’s ability to address this emergency.

      I haven’t written about this because others have been dealing with it well and pandemics aren’t something I know a great deal about. It does look, now, like the Coronavirus stands a good chance of turning into a pandemic, and I think we should discuss preparation a bit. Our world produces most goods in a […]

Vote for Hillary Rodham for President 

I think Sam Bee read one of my posts. I’m all verklempt, for many reasons.

And, Sam? If you’re reading this? Send coffee. This staging location is going to be busy today working its ass off so you don’t have to go back to Canada.

Let’s Roar.

And while we’re at it, let’s turn the Senate blue. Let’s elect Katie McGinty as Senator from Pennsylvania and kick Pat Toomey to the curb.

Bonus: Katie was a chemist before she went to law school. Woooot! Go Geeks!

Update:  We are getting reports from volunteers that have already voted that turnout is very high. One of our canvassers said he arrived at his church, waited about 15 minutes because there were about 50 people ahead of him. When he came out, 200 people had arrived and the church was opening up a second parking lot to handle the overflow. The poll worker said in 30 years, she’d never seen anything like it so early in the morning.

If you want to follow Pennsylvania today, check out our twitter feed at @HillaryforPA

  1. I’m testing periscope. But if I post anything, it’s not going to be from my staging location. I’ll be posting in and around the east suburbs of Pittsburgh. That will be Churchill, Wilkins, Penn Hills, Verona, Oakmont.
    It will depend on how busy it gets here. I’m not going to go vote until there’s W lull. The people working this staging location are taking turns running out to vote.

  2. Just sent a bunch o’canvassers out

  3. OMG. This is so freakin’ exciting. I can feel it all in the air, all the way from here!

    Meanwhile, here’s the Geek’s Guide to Election Day, from the Princeton Consortium: http://election.princeton.edu/wp-content/uploads/2016/11/geeks-guide-2016_v1.pdf updated throughout the day.

    Wearing white today for the suffragettes!

  4. THANK YOU! RD….

  5. Worth re-posting.

  6. Hillary and her supporters get knocked down. We get up again. They’re never gonna keep us down. 😀

  7. I can’t do another thing. I need a sensory deprivation tank.

  8. All she can do now is tie & send race to House, where GOP House elects Trump. It is unbelievable.

    We will all need each other for the next 4 years, particularly the next 2.

    Trump goes to court next month. He’s said Pence will be running the country, anyway…

    I can’t imagine how she must be feeling right now. And Bill.


  9. The Right thanks the Idiot Left institution known as Wikileaks.

    • IBW blames investigative journalist, not the crimes done by powerful politicians or business CXOs uncovered by the journalists.

      IBW “logic”: Woodward & Bernstein are criminals, not Richard Nixon

  10. If she loses, this is on the Democrats who decided to let Obama go first. If she had been able to run in 2008, there would have been no e-mail problem to trip her up.

    Looking at the map on the Times, she could still win, but it means she must win Arizona, Minn., Wisconsin, Michigan, Penn., New Hampshire and Maine.

    If any good comes of a Trump presidency it’s that people may finally realize that the Republican party does not have their best interest at heart.

    I took the champagne bottle out of the fridge and am going to bed.

  11. I doubt that Democrats will recognize the damage Sanders made during the primaries. That’s my $.02 worth

    • I agree with you 100%.

    • I doubt the Democrats will realize the damage the DNC made by thinking they could win without the Left wing of the party (or, as Howard Dean called it, the “Democratic wing of the Democratic Party”). Eight years of hippie punching do not electoral victories make. I’m not sure they even realize that bailing out the billionaires while telling the middle class to “go die” was a bad idea,

      I’m sorry Hillary lost. I view it as more of a referendum on Obama’s lackluster Presidency than anything having to do with her.

      • This is what I think sealed her fate.
        The real coup happened 8 years ago when the finance industry decided to save themselves and went with a very weak president. The recession was too long, the stimulus too weak, the ACA too expensive and stingy for many people. Obama compromised too much, accommodated the Republicans too often. It was by design. Often, when the Obamas and Clinton’s were campaigning together, I thought it might be a mistake. Yeah, he’s got a certain cool. Michelle is eloquent. But they tied themselves at the hip.
        You can really dislike the obama years without being racists. The Bernie people were right about so many things. I spoke to many when I canvassed during the primaries and knew exactly where they were coming from. I was speaking to the middle class voters who were scared to death of losing their jobs, futures, everything in the next financial market catastrophe. They were sick to death of how corporate America treated them as disposable objects. I just didn’t think Bernie could win. I still don’t think he could have won. If he’d been nominated, the media would have evuscerated him.
        Two weeks ago, we were looking at a Hillary landslide. She was well on her way to capturing everything. She adopted bernie’s platform. That didn’t sink her. She debated brilliantly. She was a tireless campaigner.
        She did everything right.
        But she couldn’t overcome the anger of the Great Recession when not even one banker went to jail.
        And now not one ever will.
        Her best shot was 2008. It was ripped away from her.
        Rage won. Not Trump.

      • Agreed.

  12. I know this is an unpopular opinion around here but Hillary was a bad candidate. This was also a GOP year.

    • You’re right. It’s unpopular around here. She was perhaps the best candidate and hardest working campaigner we’ve ever had.
      As far as I’m concerned, she is completely blameless.

      • We won’t have another woman candidate with all the bells and whistles to be president of this country for a long time. I may not live to see a woman president of the US.

  13. What a nightmare. We have Frankenstein’s monster as POTUS now. Hillary was leading by a lot until Comey came out with his letter.

    • Yes, I’ve been thinking about that all night long and about the weird Trump-Putin stuff all election season long and about how the Russians decided to bomb Syria tonight, during the counting.

  14. Putin had nothing to do with it. The reality is that Hillary got too close to Obama who’s been a total failure. That was her decision. The use of the private server only opened a path to her enemies, and one of them was Sanders. She decided not to attack him just like she decided to step aside without a fight in 2008. One bad decision can be the end; she had many.

    Libya is a mess and she’s been made the fall guy for that mess that belonged to Obama, and she shielded him from putting that mess on his shoulders. Then there’s Syria. I could go on and on. Hillary had my vote in 2008 and I would not vote for Trump, but I can see how Americans went for him. They are trying to correct their vote from 2000, 2004, 2008 and 2012 by voting for Trump.

    • A total failure that won twice. When your a democratic presidential nominee and can’t win PA, MI and WI something is wrong. Obama won WI by 7 points even with Ryan on the ticket. She did attack trump and she came for Obama in 2008 too. I think people will rather vote for something than against it and Clinton has always had likability issues.

  15. Trump is horrible. But 1 silver lining in the Trump win, these 2 corrupt dynasties & a 3rd potential dynasty are OVER:

    Bush Crime Family
    Clinton Crime Family
    0bama Crime Family (Wiki page for 2020 Pres election says Michelle 0bama has declined to run in 2020)

    Hoping that the Sanders/social democrat/Progressive faction can take charge of the Ds from the DLC neoliberal Clinton/0bama faction. The D party has been ruined by the Reagan Jrs knowns as Bill Clinton, 0bama, & Hillary Clinton. Time to restore the New Deal tradition of FD Roosevelt, LB Johnson, ML King, Henry Wallace, Paul Wellstone, etc.

    Note that some of the leaders of the Progressive faction are women: Elizabeth Warren, Tulsi Gabbard, Nina Turner, etc. Perhaps if 1 of these women runs as the Progressive candidate in 2020, the 2016 Sanders voters (social democratic policy oriented) & the 2016 HClinton voters (Identity politics oriented) can join forces & crush ConManDon in the 2020 election #oliveBranch

    • Ok, I think we’ve had enough.
      The Clintons are not criminals.
      You need to stop posting here.

    • BTW, the best canvassers I worked with were Bernie people. They were enthusiastic and knew what was at stake. They came home.
