Breaking a 126 year tradition.
The deeply conservative Arizona Republic endorsed the Democratic nominee for president for the first time in its 126-year history on Tuesday, labeling Donald Trump a “reckless,” “divisive” candidate who is wrong on immigration and ignorant on foreign policy. “In a nation with an increasingly diverse population, Trump offers a recipe for permanent civil discord,” the editorial board wrote. “In a global economy, he offers protectionism and a fal...

People need to question why all of these Republicans are endorsing her. But instead, it's just about trashing Trump. This election is a farce and a sham.

"In that instant, it was clear that the debate had produced a winner, at least to those of us who hadn’t actually heard a word of what the candidates had said: Mrs. Clinton. He had vibrated with anxiety; she had radiated cool confidence. He had seemed to be crawling out of his own skin; she had looked uncharacteristically comfortable in hers."

That shimmy of success.


The idea was simple: to test the theory that what presidential candidates say during debates is less important than what they look like while they’re saying it.

They both play fast and loose with the truth. But guess who lies more frequently and egregiously? Yeah, him.
WASHINGTON (AP) — Donald Trump's habit of peddling hype and fabrication emerged unabated in the first presidential debate while Hillary Clinton played it cautiously in her statements, though not without error. They both denied making statements that they are on the record as saying. A look at some of the claims in the debate and how they compare with the facts:

Worth the read for the arresting close.

(And, yes, the headline number does not match the one in the copy.)
My first vote came in 1944. It was a thrilling moment for me, but not as significant as my vote on November 8th this year.

"Trump spreads lies the way terrorists plant bombs: one goes off, and when the first responders rush in, there’s a second, or even a third."

A great line.

"It's difficult to say how many Republicans are voting for Clinton. But many of the GOP faithful who have come out in support of her believe that opposing Trump and voting for Clinton is more than a matter of personal preference—it's a patriotic duty."

Hilary has quite a few notable GOPers voting for her. Perhaps there's hope for America after all.
These are the Republicans planning the ultimate betrayal: Voting for Hillary Clinton.

"Again, this wasn’t a problem of how he chose to present his beliefs; the problem is with the beliefs. This wasn’t a question of preparation. It was that the things he actually believes are themselves repellent even when coherently presented. This was not a bad performance. This is a bad man."

One for the road.
It’s that the things he actually believes are themselves repellent even when coherently presented.

If you ever needed to know that the the press thinks of this important election as nothing more than a sporting contest, here 'tis.
Let’s get ready to rumble! Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump are going head-to-head for the first time. To help us through their first presidential debate, we’ve enlisted the help of three of our political writers and columnists to act as judges. Each judge will score every round with a win, lose or draw. At the end, we’ll tally up their scores and declare a winner. Check back here as you're watching the debate to see who's in the lead.

The police unions need to understand that they are coming off like the punks on this issue from coast-to-coast.

+Mark Hall Ironically, in a way, good journalists also give up their free speech when they report and don't interpret what they discover.
