Inspection- The Immense Power of the Asshole

by Ken Carman


Inspection Are we underestimating the asshole factor? In a country started by a lot of brave people running from a-holes, but maybe at least as many people who headed across the Atlantic because they wanted their “God given right” to be the biggest a-holes around, have we underestimated Trump’s drawing power? With a history of lynchings, whippings, burnings of inconvenient women, masters who delighted in the worse aspects of slavery, prison wardens who used used to be slave owners renewing their abusive nature with gusto on former slaves, business owners and clergy who delight in declaring Jesus empowers them to teach, preach and enforce hate, just what exactly is the a-hole factor among Americans. Is it as high as 1 to 10, to 5, to 3? Read more

Trump Warns That Clinton Will Rig Debate by Using Facts

The New Yorker

TOLEDO (The Borowitz Report)—At a campaign rally on Friday, Donald Trump warned that Hillary Clinton is scheming to “rig the debate by using facts” in their first televised face-off, on Monday.

“You just watch, folks,” Trump told supporters in Toledo, Ohio. “Crooked Hillary is going to slip in little facts all night long, and that’s how she’s going to try to rig the thing.”

Inspection- There is No “If Only…”

by Ken Carman

 Anyone claiming that Hillary, and/or her campaign, have made no mistakes would be foolish; not only because even she has admitted she has made Inspection mistakes, but I suspect there has never been a campaign, a war, or any human activity minus a mistake, or two, or three or…
 God knows Donald, and his campaign, have made no mistakes except… do I really have to list them?
 In fact the ease with which Hillary, and her campaign, admit to mistakes could possibly be the biggest mistake being made this election. I guessing the concept here has been to admit and move on, even if there really was no mistake. I don’t think the concept is working, but I do believe that could be the concept.
  One example is her apology for her negative comments regarding some, not all, Trump supporters. Read more

Why Trump will lose — and lose big

P.M. Carpenter's picture

For roughly two weeks now, the stuff of the above headline has become unfashionable to toss around. In September, Hillary’s post-convention bounce has flattened out and The Donald, in national polling, has often crept within the margin of error. More fashionable now are headlines attached to columns such as Ross Douthat’s today — “How Trump Might Win” — which is a kind of horror-show, click-baited romp through the possible. Well, yes, anything is possible. A Trump victory, however, remains highly improbable — as does even a competitive Trumpian showing. To wit…
