Could Trump lose Georgia?
Vox: Trump didn't just lose the debates, Hillary beat him:
Keith Olbermann argues passionately that Trump should withdraw over “rigging” remarks.
Chris Christie continues to twist in the wind over Bridgegate. Will he wind up resigning? Jailed?
ABOVE: Kaine owning Pence on the issue of Trump's unapologetic and unnecessary, petty nastiness.
The boys got into it in tonight's veep debate. Pence seems to have won on style by bald-face lying regarding all of Trump's past statements and policies, but it will be up to Dems to underscore that lack of substance, that falsity. Consensus is that Kaine was overeager and snippy, cutting Pence off too much—in spite of the fact that the powerless moderator let Pence drone on, and the format—a conversation?!—made interrupting mandatory.
Good Kaine zinger:
Governor Pence made an odd claim. He said, “Inarguably, Vladimir Putin is a better leader than President Obama.” Vladimir Putin’s run his economy into the ground. He persecutes LGBT folks and journalists. If you don’t know the difference between difference between dictatorship and leadership, you’ve got to go back to a fifth grade civics course.
Meanwhile, the RNC declared Pence the winner before the debate began, and check out this nakedly sexist appeal:
Gotta say that I think Mike Pence screwed up royally in the end, probably thinking he was home free, by saying, “You whipped out that Mexican thing again.” Sounds utterly racist and elitist. That line is going to be blasted everywhere by the Dems.
That and ending on abortion helped Kaine, who just isn't fantastic. But I'm not sure he needed to be—he succeeded in reminding people about Trump's words and ended well, whereas Pence lied like a rug and ended poorly.

This woman is gold. I am guessing Hillary won't tap her as her running mate, but (wo)man, I wish she would:
Of COURSE @realDonaldTrump – a guy who calls women fat pigs & bimbos – picked a VP who is famous for trying to control women’s bodies.— Elizabeth Warren (@elizabethforma) July 16, 2016
Turns out Trump actually wanted to go back on his offer to pick Pence, but advisors told him it was too late. Hilarious.
Gov. Mike Pence is set to be tapped as Donald Trump's veep. (Not sure why Gingrich and FOX News severed ties so recently, unless Gingrich was faked out.) The man is virulently anti-LGBT and anti-abortion, yet he has said he is against Trump's promise to keep all Muslims out of the U.S.
Should be an interesting—zzzz—pair.
Let's make these right-wing douchebags into the losers they are in November.
