Lightning Round - 101316

I can't keep up with it all, really. But I can make note of it:

  • As far as I know, Donald Trump hasn't touched me inappropriately. I may be the only person in America who can safely make that claim.
  • Anyone calling for a "Catholic Spring" hasn't heard about Lord Mountbatten.
  • Ol' Drudge has a crapload of links you may or may not find probative. Easiest way to explain it all is to screen shot it:
I'll give you such a pinch!
  • Walter Russell Mead is still on the Calpers beat, in which he relays how Royalton, California is getting royally screwed. If you only have time to click one link today, this link would be a good choice.
  • Mark Dayton notices what we all have known for years -- the Affordable Care Act isn't. Naturally, it's the fault of the Republicans, who had nothing to do with any of it. Go back to sleep, Governor.
  • The owner of the Smitten Kitten thinks $15/hour should be everyone's minimum wage. I'm guessing the markup on her, ahem, merchandise is a little higher than what they sell at the ol' Dollar General.
  • And if the glitter cuffs at the Smitten Kitten aren't your speed, maybe you'd enjoy a stock market crash instead.
  • Blogging may be lighter over the next few days; we're going to be busy. It's good to be busy.

This article has a lot of very valid points. Worth the read.

That's really good stuff, Mark. Thanks for sharing!

Do you recommend the smitten kitten, or just providing commentary?

As for trump groping, I suspected something like this would eventually arise... And when the topic was pressed hard by Cooper in the last debate, I turned to another and said'he has something in his pocket, wait for it..'

Trump needs to demand the identities of his accusers and go after them. I'm sure they all have strong ties to Democrat party politics. That's how this stuff works.

Can't say I'm a regular patron. I'm sure they serve their particular market niche well enough.

It was an obvious setup.

They are all on the record, so he can find out what's going on with all of them. One thing I'd wonder about right off the bat -- can you raise the arm rests on seats in first class on an airline? I thought you couldn't, but I might be wrong about that. And do you believe he would start pawing a woman in a public space? I'll bet there were other passengers on that flight who would be able to corroborate or dispute that story.

I don't think the actions alleged are totally uncharacteristic for him, but it strikes me that lifting the armrest wouldn't help one to put one's hand in either area. Moreover, unless the skirt was "a bit short for modesty or comfort during air travel", it would "take some doing" to get one's hand in position to do what he's accused of. Count me skeptical.

Looks like the armrests in 1st class on some planes did fold up back then, though.
