The [Wednesday] Papers

Thursday note: The Papers will return sometime between now and Monday, possibly as The Weekend Desk Report.

An e-mail I sent to a Bernie-or-bust friend Tuesday:

"I would normally agree. I've never voted for a Clinton, nor an Obama, nor John Kerry or Al Gore. I hate Democrats. But this is different. Trump is not McCain, Romney or Bush. And while Clinton is horrible, she is, as someone whom I cannot remember right now said, "ordinarily bad," (I think it was Romney who said that), but Trump is a fucking Nazi. This is no longer Coke vs. Pepsi. It's a Nazi vs. a corporate, warhawk Democrat who will function within the system to the relative extent of all of our criminal presidents. Trump will not only be a daily Constitutional crisis, he'll destabilize the world economy, every aspect of American life, and unleash white militias everywhere. This is the moment. Indeed, voting for Hillary is about protecting people - including the Sanders people. This is the one time the argument against third-party voting is correct."

*

Submitted by our very own Tim Willette, from New York magazine:

"So he wasn't worried about any fracturing of the party?, a reporter asked. 'I do not think there's any fracturing of the party,' Biden replied. 'I wish we could put something on every Sanders delegate walking into a booth,' by which he seemed to mean some sort of vote-tracking device. 'If we were able to find out, I bet you everything I have that hardly anyone is gonna pull the lever for Trump. Come on, man, are you kiddin' me? They're gonna show up! But look, they worked really hard! They did more to change the attitude in the party than anything that's happened in a long, long time. It's all for the better!"

My reply:

"Yup. He also said Dems should show a little more class and let Sanders people be angry. That's exactly right. Why treat them as a problem? Total horseshit."

Oh, so now we're gonna worry about Obama's unprecedented worldwide spying regime.

A lot of misunderstanding about this:

And Al Gore never claimed he invented the Internet or discovered Love Canal. Etc. Etc., Iraq War.

Most of what you think is true isn't.
