That is exactly the term Hillary Clinton used in excoriating Donald Trump during their third debate when Trump refused to admit he would accept the results of the election. Now, only a few weeks later, Clinton is doing just that - in an even more deceitful way. Instead of challenging the results directly herself, she has her henchwoman, Jill Stein, challenging the results in three states where not only are the recounts unlikely to change in the outcome in those states, and absolutely certain to have on effect in the electoral college result, but is being done in a way that casts doubt on the electoral process by claiming mere statistics show voter fraud. Please. Those are the same statistics that predicted her victory, mind you.
The only thing the desperate, Hail Mary farce will do is further undermine the public's faith in their electoral process, exactly something that Hillary was saying Trump would do.

Trump reminds me of the Raiders and Al Davis in many ways. For one, it's all about the win. Probably more reminiscent of the Raiders, though, are Trumps supporters who, in just about every respect, are as respectable and classy as Raiders fans.

People act as if the world is on fire with Donald Trump leading in a variety of races but, my fellow Republicans, it's all for the better. Here's why:
First, the Trump sideshow completely keeps her off the screen, and her numbers drop. More on that effect below.
Second, Trump does not have a majority anywhere, and he will require a majority to win the nomination. At this point, Trump has only 82 delegates of the 1,287 necessary to clinch the nomination. That just ain't gonna happen. What will happen is that there will be a brokered convention where the non-Trump candidates select one of themselves - hopefully, Rubio or Kasich- who will win the nomination.
Third, and this is the most important one, any of the leading Republicans are ahead of Hillary in a one-to-one matchup - except Trump- according to Real Clear Politicshttp://www.realclearpolitics.com/epolls/2016/president/2016_Clinton_vs._Republicans.html. Hence, the results of the brokered convention (that is, not Trump) should yield a Republican victory in the end.
So relax, the Republic will survive, and the more Trump takes the light off Hillary, the better the Republican chances in November.
