  1. I honestly have to say that Trump, despite acting like a prole, seemed to have hosted a more upscale convention in Cleveland.

    DemsinPhilly looks like a half arsed, shoddy piece of work. Perhaps there is a lack in funding!

    Anyway, be ready so see plenty of eyesore moments. Ugly women, and countless number of NAMs to make prime-time viewing unpleasant.

    The moronic proles in the audience of the RNC were bad, but this will be worse!

    Here’s Trump from maybe 10 years ago.

    He’s comfortable swimming among the proles.

    Then hanging out with billionaires at his many upscale, dress code golf courses.

    • Stern and Trump are hugely skilled at communicating (downwards) across two or three standard deviation levels with respect to IQ. (Bill Clinton was like that too – and Al Franken knows how to do it locally in MN, as did Bloomberg in NYC, but thank God no national level Democrat since Bill Clinton has had that skill). Stern was an almost frighteningly amoral guy (I pray for people like that a lot, I feel really badly for their parents) back in the day. He has matured, and I think he is now big on things like kindness to animals. Trump has matured too. Both are only a few years younger than the average old folks home resident, so they really have had no choice but to grow a little (or a lot, in Trump’s case) wiser. Anyway, I guarantee you neither one spends much leisure time with the sort of person who thinks Robin Quivers is insightful or Crackhead Bob was genuinely funny. But Robin and Crackhead Bob would never catch on to that.

      • Howard Stern does socialize with celebrity fans of the show. The fact that he doesn’t want to associate with non celebrity fans (who going back to at least the nineties have actually been significantly wealthier and better educated than average) doesn’t have anything to do with their intellectual ability.

        Come on, Robin is the smartest person on the show. I know that isn’t saying much and there are reasons to think she doesn’t contribute much but she’s not “crackhead bob”. RIP.

      • Robin does say lots of insightful things (or did when I listened when it was on free radio) and I should not have used her as an example. I didn’t want to name any of the other guys because why hurt their feelings if they google their names? Robin seems like she wouldn’t care, but I withdraw her name from the analysis anyway. Howard Stern said a lot of things in the last couple of years on free radio about how he spends his time but I haven’t listened to his show since then, so my comment might have been inaccurate in that regard too. People change a lot in 10 years, or however long it has been since the show moved to satellite.

  3. Lion, I can’t believe you’re watching this. Too toxic for me.

    • I wouldn’t watch it either, but it’s nice to get the summary from Lion. I just saw Trump’s entrance to accept the nomination. Wow! The best! Leaves everybody in the dust: Putin, Stalin, Idi Amin, Obama, Mobutu, Mugabe. Trump is the best! Gotta love him! Class, real class!

    • The RNC had its morons and clowns, but the DNC takes the cake, as being the more inane, childish and surreal forum of dimwits.

      Al Franken, Sara Silverman and Paul Simon – Celebrity Jews represent the mystical insanity/delusion of the left-o-sphere, meanwhile Guido Celebrities like Anthony Sabato Jr. and Scott Baio represent the unyielding, pragmatic, boring right-o-sphere.

      Notice how Italian and Jews are so similar in personalities, yet very different in outlook with the world!

      • What makes Scott Baio a guido? He doesn’t seem egotistical and so far as I know, he has no tendency toward violence. He seems intelligent – he’s certainly capable of making a political argument. Your comment only proves that on LOTB “guido” just means Italian.

        Here’s another one:

        Jewish NYC Mayor Bloomberg – supports Hillary.

        Italian NYC Mayor Rudy G – supports Trump.

      • Jared Kushner, Jewish, supports Trump. Trump got a standing ovation at AIPAC (to the embarrassment of the elites running AIPAC).

        Prole Jews in NYC all love Trump.

        Elites both gentile and Jewish hate Trump.

      • Guidos in America waste much of their talent by being proles. And Jews waste much of their intellectual energy, by being stupid liberals.

        Sara Silverman is actually quite attractive for a Jewish woman, almost a guidette in appearance, but she’s wasted and very unclassy.

        It’s quite sad that America is a nation of wasted individuals, or what some of us call prole drifting.

        I blame it on petty consumerism and the NAM effect!

  6. The Dems have additional problems: Montana legislators endorse Gary Johnson, he’s in a dead heat with Trump and Clinton in Utah, workers and women love him in Nevada along with minorities. More @ https://www.facebook.com/groups/736882696414329/ which tracks his poll data…

  7. From facebook comments it seems my Dem friends liked Michelle’s speech. Not sure if they’re aware that Trump has picked up support from Obama’s brother.

    “Obama, 58, a longtime Democrat, said his “deep disappointment” in his brother Barack’s administration has led him to recently switch allegiance to “the party of Lincoln.”

    The last straw, he said, came earlier this month when FBI Director James Comey recommended not prosecuting Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton over her use of a private e-mail servers while secretary of state.

    Hillary Clinton over her use of a private e-mail servers while secretary of state.

    “She should have known better as the custodian of classified information,” said Obama.

    He’s also annoyed that Clinton and President Obama killed Libyan leader Moammar Khadafy, whom he called one of his best friends.

    Malik Obama dedicated his 2012 biography of his late father to Khadafy and others who were “making this world a better place.”

    “I still feel that getting rid of Khadafy didn’t make things any better in Libya,” he said. “My brother and the secretary of state disappointed me in that regard.”

  10. The endless parade of grievance mongers at the convention is hilarious. The Democratic Party is blind to it.

  11. Someone around here really likes to use and overuse the word “prole.”

    One could think that that someone is trying a bit too hard to pose as so above it all.

  12. I was watching part of the convention with some lower IQ, low information, older ladies and they were absolutely eating up the class warfare red meat. It was getting them all riled up. They never stopped to think if Dems truly were the party of the working and middle class why has Wall Street and big banks thrived (much more than they have) during the Obama era and why has income inequality accelerated to levels never seen before. The Bernie supporters are the only liberals who do not accept what the Dems tell them at face value.

  13. Further indignity to the BernieBro’s they wont be able to try to substitute in a different VP.
    This should have been a shoe-in since you only need 300 delegates to support such a move and Bernie has 40% of the total.

    But in another transparent backroom deal that is being passed off as incompetency that isnt happening.
    And we are supposed to believe that in the past weeks no one could put together a submission.

    http://thehill.com/blogs/ballot-box/presidential-races/289313-sanders-backers-party-quashed-our-vp-challenge

    “Donna Smith, the executive director of Progressive Democrats of America, said on Tuesday that she visited a local Democratic Party office to get the forms necessary to submit a challenger to Kaine, but was given an email for general inquiries instead.

    “I would best characterize it as being sent on a wild goose chase,” Smith said.

    “We understand now that the window of time has passed, so we can’t formally nominate [someone],” she added.


    Smith said Sanders supporters would have moved forward if they had been able to get the forms on Tuesday morning.
