Early voting in Georgia. On the 20th of October this old Goldwater conservative voted against both Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton by casting my vote for Gary Johnson. Neither Trump or Clinton belong within a million miles of the Oval Office.

Disclosure: I am/Was a Christie Fan.
He was pretty good at the Press Conference yesterday, IF he is telling the truth.
I think we Will find out because the current outed culprits will be testifying under oath to several investigations, including possible a Federal one.
Facing not just Perjury, but other criminal charges, Bridget et al, migt cough it up IF he was involved.
Without those circumstances, it could have been quashed.
What's a definite FAIL on CC"s part is proceeding with the Confirmation hearings of the possible Ring Leader/Chief of Staff/Dowd as State Attorney General!
A crazy and unforgivable attempted outcome where the Possible Chief conspirator will be leading the state investigation OF his friends/possible fellow perps!
The Nomination should have been Put on hold pending investigations. IOW, at least 6 months.
This guarantees some more Fun next week. The Hearings scheduled to start Tuesday.

I'm personally sick of not being able to dunk a basketball because of racism.
And the GOP spent the next year trying to repeal Obama-care including a wildly unpopular government shut-down. Why would you think the Democrats would concede the ACA had Romney won when the GOP clearly didn't?
In any case, he answered all questions yesterday, and even though I don't care for him as a politician, I think he is telling the truth...But I understand you progressives are all frothing at the mouth like rabid dogs, so froth away.
Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.

I had to smile when news of his two hour press conference hit yesterday. Right away I thought of the Alan Alda character - Republican Arnold Vinick - on the final year of WEST WING and how he gave a lengthy press conference to try and bury his involvement in getting a nuclear power company on line only to have it turn into disaster later.
It failed and he lost the election to Democrat Jimmy Smits - Matt Santos.

There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old's life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.... John Rogers
