    More intra-GOP strife:

    “Every piece of data shows that if Trump is the nominee, he will suffer a historic beat-down in the general election,” said Tim Miller, a Republican operative who works for a group committed to stopping Trump. “He’s been running for president for a year now and general election voters have already rendered their judgment.”

    Ya, but Hillary will need a decent turnout and it appears the Bernie people will take his loss personally. I just don't understand Dems who sit on their hands and let Republicans win (and gerrymander and voter suppress and start false wars and pass anti-gay laws) like they did in the last by-election.

    The Gobs Of Poop scheduled their gun-free convention July 18–21 and the Democrats are scheduled for July 25-28.

    So since we might not even know who will be the leading nominee going into the Republican Convention as their convention rules can change the game, that at least gives the Dems a few short days for some last minute measuring of the pulse by whatever polling can be done in that short period of time. I'd imagine they'd be scrambling for numbers, especially if a ringer, Mitt or anyone else is thrown into & pulled out from a last minute mix.

    On the other hand, with that email case not yet closed though I doubt they've anything not yet charged--the FBI isn't really known for fucking around--it leaves open a question of what could happen there.

    What a very bizarre scenario all the way around. The only thing about which I am certain in this regard is that the crescendo of these events will culminate right at a commercial break.
