    • The Espionage Act Is Bad Law Even When It Is Used Against People I Despise Like Trump
      Back in June 2019, the New Yorker wrote an article lambasting the Espionage Act. The George W. Bush Administration pursued several government insiders for leaking classified information, but it was the Obama Administration that normalized the use of the Espionage Act against journalists’ sources.

Wednesday: Signs of things to come?

This is Obama vs McCain Electoral College Map, Aug 20, 2008:

Electoral Votes: Obama 263, McCain 261

And here is a snapshot of the Electoral College Map from Aug. 20, 2004:

Kerry 301, Bush 213

Electoral Votes: Kerry 301, Bush 213

We all know how 2004 turned out.  It sure looked like a cake walk back then, didn’t it?  It looks like an uphill struggle today, especially when you consider that back on June 20, Obama was leading McCain 317 to 194.  Oh, how the mighty have fallen.

And fallen.

Get a clue, DNC.

Update: Ayayayay!  Pumaalliance says it’s worse than we think.  RealClearPolitics has a more chilling electoral college map of the latest polls and it ain’t pretty.  McCain leads Obama 274-264.  Oh, and then there was the little matter of the latest LATimes Poll released last night.  Yeah, yeah, it’s the LATimes but in *this* instance, its poll is not an outlier.  Obama leads McCain by a whisper,  45-43.

HELLLLOOO, DNC!  Obama is supposed to be cleaning the floor with McCain.  The Republicans are radioactive this year, remember?

Jeez!  Dean Democrats better wake up and smell the Starbucks.  If you don’t want to win the White House this year, get out of the way for the woman who does.
