  2. Anne Lamott once wrote: I thought such awful thoughts I cannot even say them out loud because they would make Jesus want to drink gin straight out of the cat dish.
    Clearly, she’s a g-d prophet, because if that sentence isn’t meant for this election cycle, I don’t know what is.

    • Brilliant!!!! I love her. My favorite of hers (until now) was: I figure my chances of winning the lottery are the same whether I buy a ticket or not.


      • Not that I’m trying to start an Anne Lamott quote-off (although I would attend the HELL out of that), but my absolute favorite quote of hers directly applies to my blog and my family: “You own everything that happened to you. Tell your stories. If people wanted you to write warmly about them, they should have behaved better.”
        She’s a freaking genius.

  4. Agree with all this, except wish Hillary was more forthcoming when she came out of Chelsea’s apartment. “I’m great!” was clearly not true. I wish she’d said, “Was dehydrated but feel better now.” Her answer feeds into her trust issues. Believe me, I’ll vote for her, but that moment bugged me.

  5. People are getting dumber by the second. Do they have any C L U E about the serious medical conditions of previous Presidents? Roosevelt was in a damn wheelchair for god sakes and elected to 3 terms. JFK with his chronic back issues and he was a young man. The list goes on. I just don’t understand why a cough puts her at death’s door. Maybe it’s because she doesn’t have a penis.

  8. And yeah… isn’t that amazing, but I’m sure people are going to hang her on the illness. Meanwhile, Mr. Trump can say anything he wants and people will laud him. I seriously think there is some weird silent double standard being applied here.

    That’s petty much the deepest topic being seriously considered. The candidates views on the big topics are either nonsensical or a rehash of current policies.

    • I agree on the Trump side. I think that Hillary has some good ideas that differentiate between her and Obama. Then again, the economy is stronger, jobs growing … Obama ain’t so bad.


  10. I worry that people will really make the switch because of that. Your comic points out the absurdity of it, but there are some twisted minds out there.

  11. I’ve often wondered how candidates stay healthy on the campaign trail, shaking hands with all those people and the grueling hours and schedule.

    • Every time someone says she’s hiding some illness, i want to write about what having a chronic illness does to one’s energy level. It eliminates it!

      • Hate to butt in on this conversation, but you make a good point. If she were chronically ill, I doubt she would have chosen to run for prez.

        By the way, since you are so erudite today, we’re going to pose your next question on Gibber tomorrow.

        • Feel free to butt in any old time, Tippy.

          Honestly, she could not do it with a chronic illness. No way. I should write that post…

          I’ll look out for Gibber tomorrow! Thanks for the heads’ up!
