Take Your Vote And Shove It: “Super delegates don't “represent people”; I'm not elected by anyone. I'll do what I think is right for the country.” Super delegate Howard Dean.
Ins & Out: In 2015 the US imported $735 billion (45% ) more than it exported. That's an awful lot of jobs.
Paperwork: US drones have killed “150 al-Shabab” soldiers in Somalia. Thisis not murder because a) Congress declared war on al-Shabab or Somalia or both, b) they are terrorists and have been rampaging through Kansas, c) because we're US and they're not, or d) it is murder, but that's our basic foreign policy.
Come To Mama: Clinton's staff has pivoted from Bernie Sanders' not-quite cold corpse to begin romancing moderate Republicans, who are Hillary's natural base anyway – screw the young liberal idealists.
Coordination: The same day that Obama declares that it is “not true” that Wall Street regulation is too lax, his administration decided not to pursue Citigroup for crimes it committed against the American people.
The Undead: You can now get an interest-only mortgage, a no-money-down mortgage, or you can get away with only putting 3% down. Been there, done that and have already forgotten how poorly it turned out.
Never-Neverland: Forbes wants to know if inequality will turn entire cities into ghettos. Will?
TOP SECRET/NOFORN: Mrs. Clinton had no immediate control over the classified information contained in emails sent to her. She had complete control over the content of emails she wrote – and so far over 100 of her messages have been found to contain classified information. The prosecution rests.
Harvey: Standing next to Bernie Sanders at the latest debate, Hillary again said that she would release transcripts of her talks with her Wall Street overlords only if “all other candidates” did. Bernie should have simply held out a blank sheet of paper. But she doesn't consider Bernie an actual candidate.
Porn O'Graph: Warning, check for crossing traffic.
