Checking in with an old friend. No, not her. But close.
Crazy Joe Cannon:
ALERT: Trump gaining.
Time to panic.
After running a disastrous campaign…after infuriating many Republicans…after hitching his wagon to a white supremacist website…after revealing himself to be a true American grotesque…Trump is catching up to Hillary Clinton.
See here and here.
Trump didn’t do this: The anti-Clinton press did. The right-wing conspiracy theorists are winning the day. Never underestimate the power of Clinton Derangement Syndrome.
It is hard to beleive that pseudo-scandals like “Emailgate” and the Clinton Foundation are going to hand this election to a bombastic, lying, low-IQ oaf who — as anyone with any brains can see — acts as Putin’s agent, witting or unwitting. (I think the former.) But within just a couple of weeks, Trump has more than halved the once-considerable distance between his number and Hillary’s.
I still think that Trump will win this one.
So far, nothing has been able to defeat Donald Trump except Donald Trump: He has hurt himself by blurting out a series of utterly unnecessary idiocies. He can commit political suicide, yes. But no outside force can touch him.
Nothing said by Hillary Clinton has had any impact. Nothing said by any Democrat has had any impact. Nothing said by the major newspapers has had any impact. Nothing said by Trump’s biographers has had any impact. Nothing said by our great authors, intellectuals and cultural leaders has had any impact. Nothing said by major economists and foreign policy experts has had any impact. Nothing said by our popular comics — Colbert, Maher, Bee, Oliver, Noah, Myers and all the others — has had or will have any impact. Nothing said by your favorite bloggers has had or will have any impact.
Anything said against Trump — by anyone — is considered part of the Great Illuminati Conspiracy.
Anything said in favor of Clinton — by anyone — is considered part of the Great Illuminati Conspiracy.
The October Surprise will seal the deal. I’ve been traipsing around the internet — and guess what? Turns out that others are starting to whistle a theme first sounded here: Wikileaks will release documents faked up by the Russians. Americans have been so thoroughly brainwashed by anti-Clinton propaganda that they will accept without question the bonafides of documents that have been laundered through Russia’s intelligence services.
It’s coming. Mark my words.
There’s more, but it doesn’t get any saner.
I went over to Cannonfire to see if he had anything to say about Anthony’s Weiner. Some of you may remember Joe’s impassioned defense of Weiner during the first sexting scandal. Joe Cannon did a series of post proving conclusively that Weiner was framed by Andrew Breitbart.
Then Weiner confessed. But “Loose” Cannon was undeterred. He argued that Weiner was coerced into confessing. Joe should get an endorsement contract from Reynold’s Wrap.
Happy Tin Foil Tuesday!
