I think so. It's just too blatant.

A Cruz supporter could have been one of the writers

There's only two options;

Somebody went rogue on the writing team and purposefully made her look stupid, or this campaign is, and always has been, a performance piece that's gone too far (and that they are consistently trying to self sabatoge, yet somehow find themselves even deeper trenched with each faux pas)

I honestly don't know which is more reasonable

As we all know, deep is THE arbiter of truth around here.

Your act is getting stale, deep.

Actually, BVS is the arbiter of truth.

'stale' because he has a different view of the political paradigm?

Or maybe it was orchestrated by the Trump campaign -- distract all of us effete liberals talking about something eggheaded like plagiarism while the convention continues its march into white nationalist fascism, complete with calls to resume and ramp up the Cheney-era torture program and to throw the opposition in jail.

Perhaps President Trump will personally waterboard Mrs Clinton over those emails?

Lost in all the plagiarism stuff is how unabashadly vile the first day of the convention was. Anti-women, anti-immigrant, anti-minorities vitriol at its loudest. The RNC is basically a live version of the comments section of an article about President Obama in a conservative newspaper.

Almost has to be the case.

God willing it's Warren

Seems like the most likely scenario. And hey, it's working!

I've been reading some first hand accounts from some of the Never-Trump contingency at the convention, and it is getting a little scary in there. Reports of white nationalists providing "security" for pro-Trump delegates, and groups following anti-Trump delegates into bathrooms with threats of physical violence and retaliation from the Trump administration itself unless they withdraw from the convention. Prayer held this morning, in which leaders asked that Jesus close the mouths of those who would raise a voice in protest, and put hands pressing down on the shoulders of those tempted to rise up in dissent.

Bonkers.

Tim Kaine, Trump narrowed it down for her.
