Will our irreverent humor on American politics get us into trouble? Crooked Deck is here only to entertain with a touch of sarcasm. Back us up.

Hillary Clinton, still struggling as a presidential candidate, is relying heavily on Democratic surrogates like Barack Obama, Joe Biden, defeated rival Bernie Sanders...and husband Bill Clinton. Unfortunately, Bill Clinton comes with plenty of baggage, and just added another duffel with his recent criticism of Obamacare. Donald Trump has tried to link Bill Clinton's notorious infidelities with Hillary Clinton's candidacy, resulting in the liberal media accusing Trump of sexism. But it's tough to demand that Pence accept some responsibility for Trump's sins without accepting that Hillary must also bear some responsibility for Bill's.

I refuse to play the "lesser of two evils" game. I am a taxpaying citizen and I will cast my vote how I damned well please. If you are horrified that my vote for someone other than Clinton will hand Trump the White House, then you should have been with me when I fought for Bernie Sanders. I told you, plain as I could speak, what the situation was and how I would always vote. Speaking honestly, I told you that I would not compromise. You either ignored me or chose to believe that I was bluffing.

Hillary Clinton has based her candidacy on wowing us with her skill and competence, so she will be judged by that standard. Donald Trump has based his candidacy on rejecting the establishment, so he is judged by a different standard. If you're upset by the media's coverage of Hillary Clinton, blame her choice of branding rather than the media itself.

Maybe, just maybe, the media has gotten tired of cleaning up Clinton's messes. Several factors are probably at play here: Annoyance at Hillary Clinton's continued refusal to hold a genuine press conference, fatigue of constantly covering the same liberal matron for more than eight years, and disgust at Clinton's stubborn refusal to apologize for anything. After many months of being Team Clinton's unofficial cheerleaders, the mainstream media has gotten nothing in return.

Conservatives love free expression when it comes to the occasional "tough love" of academic freedom, but are suddenly worried about decorum and manners when it comes to issues of patriotism. Liberals are quick to support protest speech that many conservatives and centrists view as offensive, but loudly decry any other speech that is not politically correct. Could it be possible that both sides are correct when supporting free speech? Shouldn't we support both academic freedom and protest speech?

Say what you will about Bernie Sanders, but he would have kept the 2016 general election from becoming a junior high school taunt-fest. We would have had a national referendum on real policy proposals, not a dreary march to vote for the lesser of two evils. At this point, few voters are choosing candidates based on policy. Instead of high-minded discourse and rational self-interest, we are being ruled by identity politics and engaging in tribalism. Race and gender have become political cudgels. It feels like we've backslid to the 1960s.

Also...does Team Clinton's uncharacteristic shouting imply guilty consciences? When it came to those "damned e-mails," as Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) described them, Team Clinton was stoic and staid for months. But after only a few days of journalists poking at the Clinton Foundation, Team Clinton was anything but staid and calm. Is the sudden vitriol and volume meant to drive away the media before they can discover something scandalous? Is Hillary Clinton nervous and directing her acolytes to attack?

Why did the media do this? Even if many media figures disliked Clinton personally, due to her disdain for the media, they still loved their narrative. At some point it wasn't about Clinton any more - it was about the media's power to control public opinion. The media continued to support Clinton throughout the primaries because she was the candidate they had chosen...and damned if they were going to change!

Make no mistake: A vote for Hillary Clinton is a vote in favor of her record. There is no option to say "I'm voting for Hillary Clinton only to stymie Donald Trump." When you cast your presidential ballot, you are all in. The records make little distinction. If you vote for Hillary Clinton, you are tacitly approving of every lie, scandal, flip-flop, and Wikileak revelation. I cannot stomach this, and so I am voting for Green Party nominee Jill Stein.

I can't give up my idealism, so I won't cast my ballot for Hillary Clinton. After much thought, I will vote for Green Party nominee Jill Stein on November 8. Her platform may not be perfect, but it is the closest to what Bernie Sanders advocated during the primaries. Every vote for Stein is a voice calling for universal health care and tuition-free public higher education for qualified students. Every vote for Stein is a voice calling for bold, honest leadership. Every for vote Stein is a voice declaring that the status quo is unacceptable.

Instead of trying to fix the many liabilities and controversies surrounding Hillary Clinton, especially her preference for networking with moderate Republicans instead of genuine progressives, leading Democrats have simply demanded that we voters accept the former Secretary of State at face value. Clinton wants to do it her way, and we peons better play ball. Better to tolerate the low-level corruption and nepotism than be racist, sexist, xenophonic, and homophobic, right? As a left-leaning voter, I feel like Jefferson Smith being given the backroom chat by James Taylor and Joe Paine.

As the presidential campaigns approach their final acts, Hillary Clinton must reveal what she stands for. A major weakness, perhaps just as damaging as her scandals, has been a lack of distinct branding. Instead of portraying herself as a liberal or as a progressive, Clinton has focused on portraying herself simply as "experienced" and politically correct. Frankly, it's not enough to lure voters to the ballot box on November 8. Trump, for all his bombastic offensiveness, at least lets his supporters know where he stands. He wants to build a wall, damn it! What does Hillary want?

We actually already know who the next president is. The media already pre-determined it.

The only problem is, Hillary's not really winning. Sure, she's still the frontrunner...but how embarrassing! Since Clinton's post-convention bounce, Donald Trump has cut her lead in half. And now there's the infamous "basket of deplorables" comment, where Clinton may have blundered into her own "47 percent" gaffe. To sum it up, DNC, you guys nominated a real lemon. Since late June, Hillary Clinton has slugged and sputtered. Instead of talking policy, she has allowed Trump to drag her into the gutter.

Either Clinton is a bigger liar than ever, or she is - dare I say it - an idiot. Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump has said the same, which is a surprisingly clear and cogent accusation to come from the bombastic billionaire buffoon. While the media has universally portrayed Hillary Clinton as savvy and super-smart, how can we explain her many boneheaded maneuvers since 2009? Why would someone who wanted to run for president again ever risk putting an unauthorized e-mail server in her home for all of her government communications, especially when many of them would be highly classified?

With Russian-allied hackers already painted as 2016 election wild cards, any victory is suspect. If Trump wins on November 8 after a damaging batch of Clinton emails goes public, how will liberals react? There will be riots in the streets, with many accusing the Kremlin of cooking up a disinformation plot to scuttle a good and honest woman. If Clinton wins on November 8, conservatives will accuse the DNC of rigging the vote in various states. Again, there will be riots in the streets.

How can Berners choose between two candidates of virtually equal disappointment and odiousness? Simple: We should not. The time is now to boost third parties, on both sides of the political spectrum, into prominence. By flocking to the Green Party and the Libertarian Party, Berners can finally break the Democrat-Republican duopoly that has paralyzed our country. We can force the two major parties to diversify and become more competitive by promoting their third-party rivals.

Though Clinton's comparison is definitely apples and oranges, it appeared to hold just enough water to keep a federal indictment at bay. However, it may cost her among moderate Republicans, whom she desperately needs. As Trump has imploded, an increasing number of Bush-era Republicans have crossed party lines and pledged their support to her. Now that she has thrown a well-respected moderate Republican like Colin Powell under the bus, has Clinton shattered the détente between centrist liberals and centrist conservatives?
