I Know What You're Doing This Evening
By Rini Grammer [ Tue Nov 8 2016 4:48 PM ]
“Oh hello. I'm coming to you live, before the final results of the election. Here in the Capitol. The election results are coming in as we speak. I've just been handed a sticky note that reads 'No one voted,' is that right, Jerry? Heh, I voted, that's for sure. I sure did. Don't question me on that.
Oh no. Jerry's left the studio. I hear screaming outside. One moment, I'm going to look out the window. Oh, no. Jerry doused himself in gasoline. Well, he was kind of an imbecile, anyway. Still.
Too bad everyone assumed that someone else would vote, it seems we now live in a dystopia.
Signing off for the last time,
Don't let this become reality. Vote today.
The Daily Word in elections, fact-checking, and a very boozy deserted island
By Robin Babb [ Mon Nov 7 2016 10:47 AM ]
Janet Reno died this morning. Reno was the first woman to serve as the attorney general. Her two terms at the White House were tumultuous, defined by several shocking events including a federal raid on a cult in Waco, TX, and in 2000, the government’s seizing of Elián González, a young Cuban refugee who was at the center of an international custody battle and a political tug of war.
Tomorrow is election day. If you haven't done so already, VOTE.
I know we're all going to be glad when this election season is over. But one thing I'll miss? The fact-checking.
In a year full of frightening political threats from China and Russia, it's refreshing to hear of an international dispute done the civil way: with booze. Since 1984, Canada and Denmark have been fighting over the ownership of a small island off the coast of Greenland by regularly placing their country's flag and a bottle of whiskey and schnapps, respectively.
Whatever goes down on election day, the nightmare of Trump will linger for some. He has successfully whipped the nation into a fever-pitch of racist anger and violence, especially against Latinos. And that anger and violence will not go away, even if Trump isn't elected.

The Daily Word in a renewed FBI investigation into Hilary Clinton's emails, a lusty bisexual vicar and the UNM Duck Pond Challenge

The Daily Word in "locker room talk," Hurricane Matthew, and the Standing Rock camp
By Robin Babb [ Mon Oct 10 2016 10:35 AM ]
The second presidential debate of the year was last night. It was town hall-style debate, where voters were present to ask the two candidates questions. Today, the internet seems to have decided who won the debate after all: Ken Bone, the man in the red sweater.
Last week, some recordings of Trump making lewd comments about women were released, to nobody's surprise. Trump's running mate, Mike Pence, denounced these comments but said that he won't drop out of the campaign. He called getting tapped for the VP spot the "greatest honor" of his life.
Oh, and by the way -- professional athletes are pissed that Trump keeps defending/

The indigenous protectors camped at Sacred Stone in North Dakota protesting the Dakota Access Pipeline are now being watched and patrolled by the Morton County Sheriff's Office.
