Incredible…

A week ago police in North Miami shot yet another unarmed black man.  That, in and of itself, is not exactly news.  More like a daily occurrence, in fact.  However, this time the shooting itself wasn’t captured on camera, although the situation was.  And what was the situation?  Charles Kinsey, a (black) therapist who worked at a local care facility, was laying in the street with his arms in the air, yelling at police that the autistic grown (black) man playing with a toy truck at his feet was not a danger to anyone.  That’s when one of the policemen shot Kinsey.

Incredible.  Just incredible.  People can only be pushed so far, you know.  Does no one remember Watts?

The DNC is Giving Trump the Greatest Gift of All – a Weak Opponent

Donald-Trump-Hillary-Clinton

The latest polls have Donald Trump beating Hillary Clinton by 15 points.

No, not a Fox News poll.

This is from Nate Silver, the FiveThirtyEight numbers wizard who correctly called both the 2008 and 2012 elections. He says if the race were held today, Trump would win the swing states of Florida, Pennsylvania, Ohio, North Carolina, Iowa, Nevada, and New Hampshire, thereby assuring an easy victory.

Some will say this is just an inevitable boost in the numbers coming as it does right after the Republican National Convention. But need I remind you that the convention was chaos? The speaking roster was dominated by Trump’s family and a never-ending cavalcade of D-list celebrities. It reads more like the cast of the next Celebrity Apprentice than the best and brightest of one of our nation’s two major political parties.

And don’t forget Trump’s own acceptance speech. They’re coming to…

Keith Olbermann strikes again…

Donald Trump talks to the press

Google

This was published by Crooks and Liars last week:

Sports and political commentator Keith Olbermann attempted to understand Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump this week through the lens of clinical psychology and determined that the candidate could not pass one of the most widely used “sanity” assessments used to predict criminal and antisocial behavior.  In a column for Vanity Fair that was published on Thursday, Olbermann noted that Trump had repeatedly questioned the sanity of his rivals, including Glenn Beck, Ben Carson, Barack Obama, Ted Cruz and Megyn Kelly.

To evaluate Trump, Olbermann chose a test developed by Canadian criminal psychologist Robert D. Hare. “The Hare Psychopathy Checklist,” Olbermann explained, “serves as a kind of triage device to separate the injured from the tripping from the psychopathic.”  The test awards points for 20 different personality traits. With a maximum score of 40, the test sets the threshold for clinical psychopathy at 30 points.

The Hare checklist considers traits like grandiose sense of self-worth, pathological lying, shallow affect, lack of empathy, parasitic lifestyle, promiscuous sexual behavior, early behavior problems, irresponsibility and failure to accept responsibility for one’s own actions.  And out of 40 possible points, Trump scored 32 — putting him over the 30 point threshold for a diagnosis of clinical psychopathy.

“The implications are clear,” Olbermann wrote. “Our Trumperor’s New Clothes media rightly sees the latest Trump ‘event’—whatever it is this time—as one of the most unbelievable developments in American political history. But the simple mechanics of following, reporting, and writing the proverbial ‘new high in low’ every single day means that they could be missing one overriding truth about the health of the most remarkable presidential candidate since at least 1864.”

Okay, admit it — how many of you read this and thought, “But I knew that already!”?
