The Chicago Cubs vs. Jamaica Estates Little League: Not quite to the mercy rule, but close.

On the last news day before the Olympics pushes everything else out of the spotlight, the pro team sends former CIA Deputy Director Michael Morell to the mound to pitch some serious heat to Team Trump.

Meanwhile, the amateur team sent former Tea Party failed gubernatorial candidate Carl Paladino out to question the religious affiliation of a man who is not currently running in an election.

The day-in-day-out grunt work of a campaign matters. Turning your people out to vote matters. Keeping your team's morale high matters. And Team Trump doesn't have the slightest competency.
Michael Morell, former acting director of the Central Intelligence Agency, forcefully endorsed Hillary Clinton in a New York Times op-ed published Friday, calling Donald Trump a danger to national security and an "unwitting agent" of Russian President Vladimir Putin.

So please stop calling BernieOrBusters shitheads, 'cause we need them and you are tired of doing all of the precinct organizing and voter registration yourself -- you are doing those things, yes?

Liberals old enough to remember the 2000 election still get very angry thinking about the Supreme Court case that stopped the recount. But Al Gore led the way by acknowledging the legitimacy of it.

It is deeply patriotic to loathe the result of an election. It is treason to proclaim the illegitimacy of an election before it even takes place.
With talk of jailing—or killing—a political leader, the event is undermining democratic governance.

Scattershooting while thinking about what ever happened to +Matt Campbell ...
A Fort Worth man in his sixties was found dead Sunday, inside a house with dozens of snakes.

Well, at least none of them were venomous. I used to keep an ass-load of snakes, but I think the greatest number I ever had was about 30. I only have one now, and she is a very recent purchase after being "snake-less" for several years.

Finally! We can get this presidential election campaign started.

The US elections are like pro hockey season (except important): rarely interesting and go on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on....
Hillary Clinton and Tim Kaine were feted at their first event following the Democratic National Convention, before kicking of a bus tour.

Can't you guys just give everyone a ballot to fill in in the beginning and be done with it? Just put all the names of everyone who wants to be POTUS on the list and give it a go.

Interesting chart. Even my fellow liberals are too frightened of terrorism.

One can have a whole debate about how the stories the media choose to feature, and in what tone they are featured, can influence public opinion.
Far, far, more Americans get killed in auto accidents than by terrorists, even in a bad year like 2001, yet road safety is never given the prominence that terrorism is.

I am a proud liberal and partisan Democrat. I loathed President GW Bush. But I never thought he was a traitor or evil. My son is growing up in a household with his parent's values and also calls himself a liberal and loathes Trump.

I made him watch this speech from W because I think it demonstrates W's fundamental decency. I don't think he is as sympathetic to BLM as he should be, but I don't think he is actively trying to polarize the country either.

This is normal, patriotic politics to me: I think he was dim, I think he was wrong, I think he left the country on far worse shape than when he took office. But I don't think he was evil, I don't think he was corrupt, and I don't think the election was illegitimate.

Plus everyone deserves to be seen at their best.

This is a attitude I fear is not present in some small yet significant circles.

Like +Dan Saunders I think what is coming out of the Trump campaign is qualitatively different from anything I've seen before, and it is bad for the country.

How strange. The only broadcast network carrying the republican convention is PBS. Apparently, the GOP is as popular as march madness. Not even Univision is covering.

A few others picking up at 10 edt.

I hope I didn't miss Scott Baio.

What others are saying about Adam:

+Adam Pressler : protohipster. He liked things before before they were cool. 

The troll train catches +Adam Pressler; he backpedals and pretends he meant to ride slowly the whole time as he yells "It's not a race!" though his sweat soaked jersey belies his true intentions.

Oh, Adam... You're a  never-ending fountain, constantly spewing "win"

Adam, your hair appears to be injection molded and your mother dresses you funny.

You sure +Adam Pressler ? I might cut your chicken wings clean off. 

You need to either stop drinking or stop talking.
