I was hoping you not have to pay attention to the Orange cheeto during the Olympics, but like my cat when I'm not petting him, Trump head butted us. It's despicable what he is doing and the GOP "leadership" remains silent.

He's got a 6% chance of winning if the election were held today and we've yet to have polls reflective of the events of the last few days (his assassination comments and a wheelbarrow of prominent Republicans and conservative foreign policy experts denouncing his leadership abilities and campaign).

Obama was a 99.9% favorite right before the 2008 election (with most of the remaining .1% being electoral ties), so I really think Trump will be in that ballpark shortly and, presumably, dropping out.

Unseen events will determine the race

- The Debates will be one of the great spectacles in Election history

- Terror is sure to rear its ugly head again

- Assange has more dirt to unload

The debates will be a big spectacle when Trump doesn't show so Stein and Johnson are invited and Clinton uses it as an opportunity to let the American public get to know her better...

What exactly makes Trump the go-to-guy when it comes to terrorism?

Assange can't have much, otherwise he'd have fired it off during the primaries or would have thrown out a bombshell just before the Democratic Convention.

The race has already been determined. Trump, just this morning, said he sees no reason to change his ways, since that's what got him this far.

And since his ways have lead him into double digit losses in less than two weeks, and since he just can't help but run his mouth when the mood strikes, he will continue to say outlandish things that please his rabid base but alienate everyone else, including principled conservatives.

He's his own worst enemy at this point.

If it's a surprise that's big enough to derail Clinton's entire campaign (if not cause her even more damage), then it's something big enough to derail Clinton's entire campaign. Period. It doesn't matter when that information would be released because if it proved Clinton to have done something truly criminal she'd be fucked regardless and would have no shot at winning the election.

By thinking that Assange would release it in October, well, it would either be nothing of great importance or, if it were, he'd be a moron to do it so late in the campaign when everybody has already made their choice (and millions upon millions have already cast their early voting ballots).

I'm not saying that damning evidence of that level doesn't exist, albeit unlikely, but I am confident that the timing of its release won't really matter.

Don't forget the seizures... Or maybe there's a 13th investigation about Benghazi?

Whatever straws you can grasp onto will be of comfort.

While I strongly think that Clinton will win, we shouldn't assume that the rest of the race will just be a straightforward path of Clinton maintaining an 8+ point lead over Trump. Some of her lead is still probably a bit of convention bounce that will fade. And some things could happen that shift the race a bit towards Trump, like a debate performance that isn't terrible or a Clinton gaffe. We're not going to get to the point where FiveThirtyEight calls Clinton a 99.9% favorite until right before the election again; that only happened in 2012 because it was right before the election and the polls were consistent with little time for popular mood to shift.

Clinton will most likely win but I don't think it will be with states like Georgia.

Assange doesn't have shit. He's an attention seeking douche.

He continues to talk about how he has this evidence, these emails.....then why not release them? He sounds like every other Right Wing conspiracy theorist, always something bigger, more damning.

The emails from DNC that were released turned out to be a whole lot of faux outrage. Though it did get a few people to step down. But did nothing to Clinton

Then he announces this whole thing has been one big reality show joke, and laughs at the idea that you all fell for the "and we'll make them pay for it". Video of him with his arm around Clinton pops up on the wall and he announces his endorsement of her.

Then he starts to thank everyone that helped him pull this off and says, "but i have to thank one special person" as he wheels out a Sean Hannity that's tied to a chair. They wheel him out to the center of the stage and Trump grabs Hannity's hair and rips off a mask to reveal that it's actually Satan. Satan then says, "and I would have gotten away with it if it weren't for you pesky kids" as he looks over at Paul Ryan and Rand Paul. At that moment Rubio in confusion turns to Cruz and says "if he's satan then who are you?" Cruz just shrugs his shoulders and says "I told you so". In the meantime Scott Baio and Antonio Sabato Jr are on the side of the stage crying as they just realized the 'Tony Loves Chachi' tv show they were promised was all part of the scam. As a befuddled Ben Carson looks aimlessly into the crowd and mumbles "does this mean I don't have the Secretary of Grain Storage position?"

Is this wishful thinking, or prologue to Armagedon? Very imaginative, anyway! Stay tuned.

I would hardly call Julian Assange "right wing."

I didn't mean to lump him into it.

But his constant talk of horrible news on Clinton, or the next wave of emails will be damning....

It's no different than the far right constantly saying we've got them!!! This is the one!! Benghazi!!!!!, EMAILS!!!....MURDER!!!!
