ending in Gore v Bush (argued at the Florida and US Supreme Courts!), ...

Please get your assertions right. The US Supreme Court case was brought by Bush, and was therefore titled Bush v. Gore. Bush was the plaintiff -- with the crazy assertion that human examination of legally cast ballots to determine the intent of the voter -- as has been done for nearly 200 years when the difference is razor-thin -- was somehow improper.

Even after the Florida courts ordered a state-wide recount.

The failure of that test of democracy rewarded America with two fallen, smoldering towers at Ground Zero within a year.

What astounds me is that there are still people who swallow the mainstream media slogans hook, line, and sinker,

Looks to me like someone has swallowed the slogan of mainstream media hook, line and sinker.

Looks to me like WilliB believes in whatever tabloid filters through his bubble.

Lots of low-information voters out there, alas.

LOL! yes... "out there" --

Some historians are starting to weigh in on Trump's remarks -- calling his failure to accept the results of the upcoming election the most irresponsible thing ever said by anyone in a presidential debate.

"No one has more respect for [nasty, piggish, overweight, sluttish] women than me." -- Donald J. Trump

Folks, believe it or not, most of us have woken up from the Kool aid stupor.

Fred, thank you for sharing your experience with Kool Aid.

I have avoided Kool-Aid all my life and so don't have the experience of going into the "stupor." How can you be sure you're really awake? From my point of view, you still seem to be under the influence.

Yes, I am skeptical. Nobody for Trump can tell me they're not in some kind of stupor. He's that bad.

Hope Clinton delivers the final blow to Trump's campaign.

No... Trump has already delivered that -- to himself.

If you want a short synopsis of the Trump campaign, go to YouTube and search for "Why I suck as a salesperson" from Tommy Boy.

Democrats are doing a great job at using subliminal racism to keep Blacks out of their hair ...

The last time I looked, the Democratic Party has a far greater number of elected officials who are African-American than the Republicans. FAR, far greater. You never know, one of these days, a Democrat of African descent might just become our president. That's one way to "keep them out" of one's hair. Indeed.

Millions of whites depend on government subsidies and welfare. And that's supposed to be subliminal racism?

To the extent that racism remains a part of the human condition, I'll take the "subliminal" version over the blatant variety espoused by Trump and his supporters. You know, the ones who lied for years about President Obama not being American -- and then tried to blame their lies on Hillary. Amazing bunch.

Yeah, liberals think that and that's ok. My kids still believe in Santa as well.

Within the past five minutes, Trump's campaign manager - Kellyanne Conway -- answered a host's question: "Do you believe there is widespread voter fraud?" -- With: "Absolutely not. There's no evidence of that."

Funny. I didn't know Conway was a liberal.

I like how President Obama effectively portrayed Donnie Trump as a petulant little kid -- whining about losing before the game even begins.

Pennsylvania has always been historically a politically corrupt city through the core. It's just insulting how liberals and Democrats think that everyone is so stupid!

And here I thought all this time that Pennsylvania was a state. As a liberal, I'm not quite sure what to think of someone who claims to be an American and doesn't know that -- but I'm not surprised they're supporting Trump.

The GOP created a false narrative about voter fraud ...

Today's GOP depends on the Big Lie

Jimmy Carter is tied with Obama for worst president ever.

Two Nobel Prize laureates honored by many, many millions of people the world over. Carter personally oversaw the elimination of a very serious disease. (Unfortunately, it wasn't Trumpism.) No doubt President Obama will go on to even greater things, as Mr. Carter did.

I will concede that Reagan was this country's greatest acting president. Trump can try to compete with that on Dancing with the Stars, although personally I think he's a natural for The Biggest Loser.

So you know everyone in the State of Georgia? LMAO!

I understand statistical sampling. (Oh...so you're claiming pollsters need to call everyone or else it's not fair? Please tell me you are!)

The neighbors had a good laugh over someone making the baseless claim that the New York Times failed to do ONE article on Hillary Clinton over a seven-day period while it did nearly a dozen on Donald Trump. (Even the under-educated Trump supporters had a laugh. Some of them are growing tired of the baseless claims that Trump makes, and can start to see how crazy, dishonest, and anti-social he hardcore Trumpsters are. Hope abounds.)

One thing I'm NOT seeing in these conservative neighborhoods in Cobb County: Trump-Pence signs. At least not anywhere in the numbers seen for McCain 2008 and Romney 2012.

But, hey, I haven't seen EVERY house.

President..oops, Secretary Clinton is gathering increasing support here in Georgia. She might be the first Democrat since her husband (in 92) to take our state.

Georgia's Hispanic/Latino population has greatly increased, and we've also seen significant growth in our Asian population too. Evangelicals play an important role -- but this is Jimmy Carter's state, and home to many religious people who would not vote for Trump on principle. In fact, Trump's candidacy has made many of them start to re-evaluate their support for Republicans in general.

(Yes, we have many of the bible "literalists" who think the universe was created in six days -- and minds that far out from reality sort of naturally gravitate downwards to the GOP. Their children attend schools and talk to a wider range of people so I don't hold out much hope for Republicans in Georgia in the decades ahead.)

Many of my neighbors and I laugh when the Trump and the Republicans are posed as those who can take on the "elite." One issue here has been the building of the new baseball stadium where the Braves will play next season -- abandoning the perfectly good Turner Field. It was an elite decision of the kind Trump would push -- on the backs of ordinary people.

Give him a chance. I think Trump would be the best thing US has had since Lincoln.

Trump isn't even in the same political universe as Abraham Lincoln.

Trump would be the best thing for alt-right, white supremacists since presidential candidates Strom Thurmond, George Wallace, or David Duke. It took the election of a black man with an African-sounding name to bring the loonies out of the woodwork.

But Lincoln? --- What a laugh. The GOP started to divorce itself from Honest Abe's principles as soon as they ended Reconstruction.

Four things about this link. One, it is not going to show the prominence of articles (whether they are on the front page of the site or buried).

LOL... All it had to disprove was that the NY Times did articles on Hillary Clinton within the past seven days -- plenty of them. I understand you're a Trump supporter and therefore unable to keep a solid grip on reality, but keep in the mind the claim was made that there were NO articles on Clinton, while the Times went to 11 on Donald Trump.

There's also a section titled Election 2016 -- and guess what? -- there are articles there covering Hillary too, updated daily.

Yeah over the last week, I counted 11 times, sorry as of today 12.

Anyone wanting to verify the number of articles in the NY Times about Hillary over the past week can simply follow the link.

http://query.nytimes.com/search/sitesearch/#/hillary+clinton/7days/

No, with all the Wikileaks that have been coming out, it's apparent why Hillary didn't want them to come out and it shows that Democrats are the absolute lowest of the bottom when it comes to anything remotely resembling morals or ethics.

Uh, try counting those articles again, please. Then tell us about morals and ethics.

A beleaguered Donald Trump sought to undermine the legitimacy of the U.S. presidential election on Saturday, pressing unsubstantiated claims the contest is rigged against him, vowing anew to jail Hillary Clinton if he’s elected and throwing in a baseless insinuation his rival was on drugs in the last debate.

this guy is off the charts

Seriously! -- The test that's needed is a mental health exam for Trump, followed by a nice long rest.

Knowing now what we are finding out about Hillary....anything is possible.

Well, you can and will make up almost anything. Like your unfounded claim about the NYT doing 11 articles about Trump and none about Hillary. (Care to back that up?)

What we seem to be finding out about Hillary through the leaked Podesta emails is that, behind closed doors, she speaks of better cooperation between the two parties, and comes off sounding like a moderate Republican.

The lunatic fringe on the right have tried telling us for years that the Clintons are leftists. Shocking -- LOL -- to learn the truth.

It's a good thing for Hillary that sexual assault wasn't such a big deal back when she was defending her husband for the same behavior and worse

And it's very ironic how Trump has condemned Hillary for viciously attacking the women who came forward with accusations against her husband, while he, Donald J. Trump, has treated his female accusers with kid gloves. (LOL...Not)

Trump LIES again!

Did you know the NYT did 11 stories on Trump and NOT 1 about Hillary?! Don't tell me anything that the media is fair to Trump.

Cite the date or date period that the NYT did no stories on Hillary while it did 11 on Trump. You won't be able to, so why make ridiculous claims like that?

I see how bias the media has been by the papers and other outlets I read and watch.

Well, if you cite the dates, you'll go a long way towards demonstrating that. Meanwhile, your view of "bias" is ludicrous. You think that just because a negative story on something happening today with Trump appears means that the media has to try to dig up something negative on Hillary from the past in order to be "fair." Utterly ridiculous.

As Strangerland said, if you really cared about bias, you'd be just as vocal about the obvious bias of Fox news.

No, you don't get it. It IS wrong and disgusting to call women horrible liars when they step forward to verify Trump's bragging about sexually assaulting women? (In my view, any unwelcome grabbing or groping of genitals is assault. I believe the law will back me up on that.)

This is VERY much a current thing. You actually can't see that?

Hey, keep pushin' that 'assault' trope. It's not what he said.

Oh, I understand that when he bragged he could grab women by their genital region, he would not consider it assault.

He plays by his own set of rules.

I'll say it, I believe the women were paid to come forward. I worked long enough in this business and nothing happens with a reason.

They let people work in a business where they claim nothing happens with a reason? OK

What is very interesting about this whole topic is that Trump bragged on the bus of being able to assault ("grab") women at will and get away with it -- and when women come forward to back him up on his bragging -- he calls them horrible liars.

That's what they call in the business: "Rich."

Posted in: Trump calls accusers 'horrible horrible liars' See in context

Can I ask a serious question? When do you Dems and libs EVER criticize other liberals for anything-EVER?

If you ever actually pick up a liberal-leaning publication like The Atlantic or The New Republic, you would find plenty of critical analysis of positions taken by other liberals. But there's a vast difference between criticizing a position and attacking the person holding the position. You'll find numerous articles in each criticizing Hillary Clinton over the email scandal.

The basic values of liberals include a respect for democratic processes that the founders wrote into our constitution. The very values that Trump is attacking when he falsely claims that everything is "rigged." Trump and his followers foment distrust in our very system of government -- making it more possible for a truly malevolent form to replace it.

Posted in: Trump calls accusers 'horrible horrible liars' See in context

ok, one achievement, but had Clinton done his his job in killing him, we would have never had a 9/11.

You make that claim as though you know for a fact that 9/11 was completely dependent on bin Laden. (It wasn't; the main architect, according to the Bush Administration, was Khalid Sheikh Mohammed.) Al Qaeda had key leaders besides bin Laden, but that's a dishonest person's way of pinning the blame for the attack on Bill Clinton.

Who is responsible for the disaster known as Donald J. Trump -- a person you called a "lunatic" -- leading the GOP ticket?

Trump, in the not-too-distant future, can trade notes with cellmate Bernie Madoff about how rigged the system is and how he was set up. Just like every other inmate.

Trump's biggest crime is civic: Fomenting distrust in the American people towards our democratic processes.

Posted in: Trump unleashes aggressive attacks on his own party See in context

I happen to be a Christian woman totally not offended by any of the comments that Donald Trump has made he is not a religious leader. I had known that he was somebody from the world which means he would have language like that I am not surprised nor do I condone that type of talk.

Totally not offended? I was not offended by the language but by the message being conveyed IN the language. A supposedly religious woman is listening to a man telling someone how he made an unwelcome sexual advance on a woman he knew was married. (Trump was newly married at the time, too.) The same man claims to "love the Bible." And she's totally not offended?

Trump, in his apology, was essentially saying that he wasn't sorry for trying to hit on a married woman, but for telling someone else he did it in terms that were too blunt.

It appears that an alarming percentage of the American electorate is undergoing a mental meltdown. This is how their irrational minds are drawn to a Donald Trump.
