... it may turn out they don't even have the votes in the Senate to do much else but filibuster Clinton nominees

And if Chuck Schumer has his act together, he can have the Senate rules changed on day 1 of the new session to eliminate filibuster for any confirmations.

Comey probably knew about the (apparent) cell in the NY FBI office who have a hard-on about HRC, and knew they were going to leak something, so he decided to get out in front of it with his letter to Congress. I do give him some credit for his subsequent letter yesterday, but it would have been better IMO if he had shut up and let the leaks happen, then come down like a ton of bricks on the leakers.

Gore didn't accept the result in 2000 (well, at first he did - then when the FL Secretary of State on election night announced an automatic recount, he rescinded his concession) because, until the FL and US Supreme Courts ruled, the election wasn't over yet. As soon as the courts ruled, he made a very gracious concession.

Watergate - Hillary was fired from the staff of the House Judiciary committee investigating the Nixon Watergate scandal in 1974 by her supervisor, Democrat Jerry Zeifman, because she was a liar [foxnews.com]. Hillary "conspired to violate the Constitution, the rules of the House, the rules of the committee and the rules of confidentiality.”

Except that Zeifman was not her supervisor, and she wasn't fired http://www.snopes.com/politics...

Sure, but are you going to click on a link that says yet another idiot driver killed someone while messing around with his phone? Add Pokemon Go, and you have the fans, the haters, and the dubunkers all clicking your link, viewing your ads, and driving traffic to you via their blogs and social media.

Replace the electronics when it's actually dead or doesn't meet your needs, not just because it's not as shiny as it once was.

Those of us that aren't locked into a fixed set of needs, find that a new phone each year or two is required to meet our new needs. We first used phones to make calls, then we started using them as pocket computers. Now we use them as VR systems, which will drive the need for faster phones with better displays and better positional tracking for years to come.
