#SaysWho? You don't want to know

cnn.com — "You guys are down," Keilar said. "Says who?" Cohen asked. "Polls ... most of them," Keilar continued. Maybe even "all of them?" There was an unusually long silence - long enough, perhaps, for anyone listening to hear Trump's poll numbers dropping further, in real time, on live television. "Says who?"

Ronald Reagan, Bill Clinton Made Donald Trump's Dog Whistle

time.com — I don't know the truth about t he size of Donald Trump's hands, but his dog whistle is yuuuuuuuuge. And understanding the history of racial dog whistle politics is essential not only to understanding his candidacy but to understanding the dynamics that are reaching a boiling point in this election and will continue to stir American politics and culture for the foreseeable future.

Ann Coulter's Insane Blather Is Hilariously Owned By Sally Kohn and Other Comedians

alternet.org — In an absurd piece of political (and comedic) theater, right-wing blowhard Ann Coulter, armed with her predictably inflammatory one-liners and signature gesticulations, sat alongside Vanderbilt University professor Carol Swain as the pair tried in vain to make the case that American conservatism is better for women than its ideological counterpart.

Bernie Sanders is right: It’s time to support Hillary Clinton now

washingtonpost.com — There was a group of delegates at the Democratic National Convention who were plainly and understandably disappointed.

Democrats Still Have A Reason To Hope

You Can Support Hillary Clinton and Still Be Critical of Her

time.com — In my experience, progressives are inherently inclined to be critical. After all, we're not the ones who stand for the status quo or, worse, backwards regression, but progress, advancement-the ones who point out what's broken about the system as it is and how we need to fix it.

In picking Tim Kaine, Hillary Clinton missed an opportunity

cnn.com — Tim Kaine is basically unobjectionable, which is really just an extension of Hillary Clinton's most plausible case to would-be Republican voters - "You should vote for me because that Trump guy is nuts." That's not to say there aren't plenty of reasons to affirmatively vote for Hillary Clinton - here's a good list of 112 of them.

Paul Ryan’s speech in 3 words

foxnews.com — 1. Dazzling At least a quarter of Americans still don't know who Paul Ryan is, and only about half who know and have an opinion of him view him favorably. So, Ryan's primary job tonight was to introduce himself and make himself seem likeable, and he did that well.

Bernie Sanders' amazing run: Is it over?

cnn.com — On Tuesday, Bernie Sanders is due to appear with Hillary Clinton at a rally in Portsmouth, New Hampshire, where many expect Sanders will endorse his former rival. It's worth reflecting on the Vermont senator's unlikely journey as a presidential candidate.

Bring the tissues for this powerful tale of the triumph of marriage equality

Republicans want to drown government in a bathtub except for whatever parts they can use to constantly investigate Hillary Clinton.
