Throwing a wrench into a system isn't as good an idea as you might think. Try it sometime. Start up your car, and then take a wrench and insert it into, oh, say, the transmission.

Go ahead. We'll wait.

What the hell. That all sounds like success to me!

Martha - I swear for the longest time I thought your were on a jet-ski in your avatar. The surface behind you looks like a wake on water. I finally just looked at it closely and realized I was way off. Looks like you are having fun

Here's a stat:

Since the end of the primaries, this is what each candidate has spent on TV adverts

Clinton: 42 million
Trump: 0

Zero

Is he saving it up to buy an entire weeks worth of ads on a network?

It really seems like this is a joke

For clarity's sake, I feel the need to point out that I'm neither a Sanders nor Trump supporter. I don't really think a wrench is a great idea either.

He hasn't needed them. The one thing he can do well is manipulate the media and get free press.

He's buying a shit ton of Internet ads though, shows up on my Pandora daily.

In many ways it's really unfortunate that Hillary is the Democratic candidate this year because my assumption is that Trump will massively flame out and bring everyone down with him (Senate control up for grabs, GOP in Congress will also lose seats though their control there is pretty ironclad at this point). A better Dem candidate + Senate control + weakly controlled GOP Conress + GOP in total disarray could have resulted in some really positive policies being put into action. Hillary will likely be steady and play it safe even if/when she does not need to.

I'm in Mexico right now but we're getting a television feed from Jacksonville, Florida. I see a Hillary ad at least once every break, I've seen zero Trump ads.

He gets all of his press by calling for the assassination of his opponent.

An expert pundit on Fox News said that Trump is exactly right.

I don't think Bernie handles the amount of shit that would be thrown his way.
