    I stand corrected.

    Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Tex.) says that “a staffing issue” led to his official Twitter account “liking” a pornographic image overnight.

    Considering he tweeted at Pardon My Take last night before this unfolded.... this is actually believable.

    No, it's not believable. He should have just said, "Yes, I like porn. Who doesn't"?

    That would have been believable, and the first truthful thing he's ever said. I would gained some respect for him, and actually found I have something in common with him!

    If we decided collectively that the 2016 Presidential election should be a do-over, and we held the election again today, would the result come out differently? Here's an interesting stat from a WSJ editorial:

    Just like Mrs. Clinton, the voters of America have now had plenty of time to reflect on what happened. And based on a recent NBC/Wall Street Journal poll, they appear increasingly comfortable with their collective 2016 decision to make Donald Trump America’s 45th President. One might never know it from much of Mr. Trump’s media coverage, but he’s actually become more popular than he was during most of the campaign, while Mrs. Clinton has become less popular.

    In August, 36% of respondents said they had a somewhat or very positive view of Mr. Trump, compared to 52% with a somewhat or very negative view. These numbers look terrible, until you see Mrs. Clinton’s. Just 30% of respondents said they had a somewhat or very positive view of her, compared to 53% with a somewhat or very negative view—23 percentage points underwater.

    Good point with that Go.

    I think I am witty when I tell people in social settings that I will be glad when this election is finally over.

    Lets make that into a question.

    Q: Will you be glad when this election is finally over?

    A: The permanent election will never be over.

    "He's actually becoming more popular...36% have a positive view." 36% is up from his low of 34% in August...

    That bump upward is likely the result of Trump "rubbing shoulders" with Congressional Dems rather than him making any headway on his own campaign promises.

    The margin of error on these polls is +/- 3% so statistically speaking it's not likely the result of anything.

    The fact that it was close and he actually had fewer votes says a lot about the candidate Trump. Hillary was that bad of a candidate. We are talking about a guy who is a misogynist, racist, one who pokes fun of disabled reporters, I mean the guy is about as big of an A-hole as there is. All of that AND she still lost the electoral and barely nudged past him in the final vote count. I think Hillary writing a book and strolling around thinking people actually like her is more off putting than Trump being the same giant A-hole.

    Drink it in people, this is the state of affairs in the US. Make 'Merica Great Again!!!! Lol, we are the joke of the world.
