Happy Friday, Wonketariat! If you are a Los Angeles person, Rebecca hopes to see you TONIGHT at Red Lion Tavern in Silverlake, 7-9 p.m.! We have many so many spooky newses to tell you about! But first, have some SPOOOKY naked moles rats in a pumpkin!

Even though House Republicans squeaked their budget measure through, setting the stage for the Trump tax cuts (for the super rich only), dissent among the ranks runs deep as silver-tongued corporate lobbyists descend upon the Hill.

Even though we still don’t have a financial report, Republicans are hoping to close Uncle Sam’s coin purse in order to kill the Trump-Russia investigation.

You better believe the conspiracy cranks are going to go nuts when they find out that top Democrats didn’t know who was funding THE DOSSIER.

The FBI has finally caved and will give the House Select Committee on Intelligence some info on THE DOSSIER, so it’s only a matter of time before Trey Gowdy screams about that time Hillary Clinton peed on a uranium email in Benghazi.

Mitch McConnell is gearing up to steamroll judicial nominees, and they’re using all sorts of dirty tricks to slut-shame Democrats into supporting crappy candidates, like letting Jeff Sessions throw temper tantrums.

The Twitterati is losing its hivemind after Trump decided to delay the release of a bunch of documents about the assassination of JFK. DEEP STATE!

On the next episode of the Washington Apprentice, the finalists for Fed Chairman will square off in an Oval Office showdown. We’re crossing our fingers for a Klingon bat’leth battle.

How many days has Betsy DeVos been doling out hand jobs to private Jesus-freak and charter schools since becoming Trump’s Secretary of Education? The correct answers is 326.

The Government Accountability Office is smelling something rotten in Trump’s voter fraud commission, so they’re opening an investigation due to its lack of transparency.

OF COURSE the Trump administration is going to dole out fat stacks of cash to Tea Party crazies that came under the microscope of the IRS during the Obama administration. Why wouldn’t they apologize for investigating shady super rich mega donors dumping obscene amounts of cash into bullshit Super PACs.

People are bemoaning the lack of free speech in colleges, and now the hate mongers and conspiracy cranks are stumbling out of their secluded shanties to whine about being denied a debate on white nationalism.

You may be wondering where your congress critter stands on bump stocks, so here’s an infographic to share with your friends.

Congress is going to vote on CHIP, but Republicans are dragging their feet; we can only assume they’re not thinking about the children.

Shortly after a lawsuit was filed by Georgia election reform advocates seeking to axe the state’s ancient and hackable voting system, computer server data was deleted by technicians at the Center for Elections Systems at Kennesaw State University, which is conveniently controlled by Georgia’s secretary of state and Republican gubernatorial candidate, Brian Kemp. Now we’ll never know if John Ossoff got screwed!

When a Chinese dissident living in exile was discovered to be a Mar-a-Lago member, Trump gave him a “Get Out Of Messican Jail Free” card — now he’s being attacked by Twitter bots hell bent on portraying him as a bad hombre.

Despite all the warnings, Twitter’s privacy policy mandates the company delete user data to protect its users, and that’s a big goddamn problem for ferreting out Russian trolls.

During the Montana special election between Rob Quist and Greg Gianforte, it was hard as hell to Google some quick answers about any candidate other than Greg Gianforte. HUH.

Some people in the Russian troll army never took the job seriously — so they didn’t think it was a big deal to label random porn as a Hillary Clinton sex tape.

Trump is tweeting this morning about that multi-million dollar ad campaign calling for his impeachment. SAD.

Sebastian Gorka equated Hillary Clinton to the Rosenbergs, saying that she is guilty of treason, and suggested that she be given “the chair.” We’re confidant that this Eurotrash Mirror Spock in a bad Kissinger costume knows all about treason.

It’s time to change the laws for congressional employees in sexual harassment complaints. There’s no joke here; it’s bullshit when victims are legally discouraged to come forward, forced to undergo counseling and evaluation.

GAME CHANGE, y’all! More women are coming forward to accuse Mark Halperin of sexual harassment, and his career is in a death spiral. Good.

Tucker Carlson had a REALLY bad show last night. First he ranted in defense of Mark Halperin, insisting the names of sexual assault accusers be made public, only to then have California Democratic Rep. Brad Sherman derail not only his Trump taxes segment, but his Killary nukes segment.

And here’s your morning Nice Time! BABY FOXES!!

Ad-free is the way to be, but we need your help (and money) to stay that way!

    Paul Newman’s Rolex Daytona watch sells at auction for $17.8 Million. (not a typo)
    https://twitter.com/business/status/923860684881920000

    • Gayer Than Thou

      *looks through drawer with old watches in it*

      • Ghenghis McCann

        Even if you find every watch that every Wonketeer has ever owned you’ll be about $17.79999999 million short.

        • Biel_ze_Bubba

          I actually have a Rolex, ’50s vintage. Plain stainless, but maybe worth something today.

          • Arolpin

            Any working Rolex is worth at least $3000. Older ones are often worth more, but unless it’s a special model, stainless seems to top out around $10,000. A lot of money to spend for a watch, but it’s worth it to some people. (I wear a basic Tag Heuer, but I do have an old Gruen that needs a new crystal and a cleaning that I’ll get fixed soon. I got the Movado Museum I always wanted as a gift several years ago and discovered that my wrists/hands are too big for it to look right.)

          • Biel_ze_Bubba

            Got one of those too . . . gold bracelet, black dial. Haven’t worn it in ages; the battery has probably gone to shit and made a mess of the insides. The Rolex is a plain vanilla Oyster. Had the crown replaced once, and that cost more than the whole freaking Movado. “Authorized” Rolex shops are running a massive scam; you can’t have the watch opened without getting a “cleaning”. (Of your wallet; the inside of the watch sure ain’t getting dirty.)

    • HazooToo

      • Biel_ze_Bubba

        It’s got to be the one Sean Connery wore – not just any Submariner.

    • WaPo has a nice article on the history of the watch.

      I’m reminded of an encounter with Mr. Newman I had as a 16 year old race junky. In the late 70’s a buddy and I went, as we always did, to Laguna Seca to watch whatever racing event was taking place. We figured out how to get in the paddock without paying for passes and, if Newman was racing, would sneak around back of his pit area to try and get access. One day we poked our heads up and peered into Newman’s space and there he was, two feet in front of us working on components of his car on a workbench. He looked up at us and immediately broke into a huge smile, then a laugh. He said, “How the hell did you guys get up there!?” We were hanging on the wall like Killroy. And Newman said, “get down from there and come on in.”

      He met us around the front of his pit area and gave us a tour of his operation. Just as we were about to leave in walks Clint Eastwood and Sondra Locke. Mr. Newman introduced us to them as “two crazy kids” who snuck in. We shook everybody’s hands and left.

      We were (and I still am) over the moon about our good fortune.

    So President Trump came up with the brilliant idea of just saying “No” because his brother died an alcoholic. It figures he’s too stupid to understand many people start on opioid painkillers because they were prescribed by a physician. It’s been many years since a doctor told a patient what he really needed was a stiff drink.

    • Mildred Broxon

      What Trump really needs is a stiff something, all right. But he is not likely to achieve one.

      • calliecallie

        A stiff board to the side of the head? With votes?

    • Gayer Than Thou

      Or even so lacking in empathy and insight to observe, from his own brother’s struggle, that it’s not so easy to say “no” like that. (Or, you know, ALLEGEDLY from his own fondness for the leaf of the coca plant.)

    • BigCSouthside

      Also too, later in life, after Fred died, Trump started a business called Trump Vodka, because he believed so strongly in the dangers of alcoholism

      Oh and he also used his brother’s son as a hostage to win a lawsuit over Fred Sr’s estate.

      • TundraGrifter

        And the Trump Winery he claims to own – although its website states it has nothing to do with “The Trump Organization.”

    • Latverian Diplomat

      “I think one of the greatest of all terms I’ve come up with is ‘FakeNo,’ ” Trump told former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee (R) during an interview. “I guess other people have used it, perhaps over the years, but I’ve never noticed it.”

    • efoveks

      I’ve been looking longingly that way, as well. However, having spent my life in the sunny South, I fear that Canada temperatures would be too cold for me. I was reading about southern Alberta and Saskatchewan yesterday because they’re allegedly the Canadian sun-belt, and the temps looked pretty good, but there were cautions about the wind chill. I get cold easily, especially since chemo. What to do? Good luck with your search and your convincing.

        • nightmoth

          Well, a lot of Americans are retiring there, especially on the west coast of Mexico. Canada would be nice because Canadians are nice and they have good health care. Mexico, I think, has the same power imbalance between rich and poor that we do. I re-watched M. Moore’s “Bowling for Columbine” and the contrast between Canada and the USA was stark. It was as if Canada was the USA that everybody pretends we are.

I want to yell at them to “FUCKING MOVE!” next time. Someday…

Of course, the neighbor kid was in his 30s, had been given the house by his parents, and had grown up using what had just become my front yard as an access path for ATVing and snow-machining, presumably to avoid messing up his own yard. He felt that my asking him to stop riding through my yard made me the asshole in that situation. I disagreed. So we got off to a good start.

    “Grimm admits he’s only met Trump a few times, and never in a meaningful way. As a congressman, he’d visited the president’s Trump Tower office as a formality more than anything else, just like every other New York politician. But his impression of Trump, he told me, was a lasting and positive one — so positive, in fact, that if the president were the kind of person who paid close attention to his press coverage, he might come across Grimm complimenting him effusively. “I remember saying to myself, I never realized what a large man — I mean stature-wise, he’s a big man, with massive hands,” Grimm said, outstretching his own regular hands above the table. “I don’t have small hands, but when I shook hands with him, the first time I shook hands with him, I realized he was a big man.”He sensed my skepticism. “He is!” he said, defensively. “I thought they were pretty big. You don’t think so? I thought he had a big, strong grip. I’m dead serious.” He went on about how Trump is “a pretty big guy” and “not a small man even for his height” and how his hands were “more like a workman’s hands” than those of “a CEO.”

    Good lord, after watching him lick Trump’s ass like that, MY tongue feels dirty.

    The billionaires who rule the world don’t like taxes, don’t like regulations, don’t like unions, don’t like laws– at least as they encroach upon the lives of billionaires— and do believe very strongly that it is not merely right but necessary (“history will thank us”) to destroy democracy and its institutions to ensure life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness for the very rich, as God and Nature intended.

    This is as true of tech billionaires–late to the game, but eager players—-as it ever was of the fossil fuel/industrial boys who started this whole descent into fascist madness a century-plus ago, or the banking and financial boys who have been on board for generations. They believe government is best which privileges the privileged.

    As for the rest of us? Well, in the old formulation, we could always just die and decrease the surplus population, which is pretty much the fate these boys have in mind for most of us. Or else we can consent to be confined to reeking slums and favelas under armed guard, to be worked to death as needed, to be imprisoned, killed, or “disappeared” if we offend our lords and masters. It isn’t as if it hasn’t happened before. (Read up on Brazil: it’s like a little glimpse into the American future.)

    Anyhow, back to social media: anyone remember last year, early in the presidential campaign season, before the nominations had been pinned down, when the Republicans flang one of their brilliant public tantrums, in this case howling about how Facebook was “censoring” conservative news and conservative points of view (conservative being more accurately defined, although they would deny it, as “fascist, racist, anti-democratic, unhinged, vile)?

    Zuckerberg snapped to with an apology and a promise to fire wicked, biased, liberal humans and replace them with good little neutral algorithms. The whole thing was bullshit from beginning to end, FB, like Google, like Twitter, like literally everything, was already swarming with reactionary propaganda, but it was the sort of show Republicans are especially good at staging to blow smoke when they’re about to do something extraordinarily destructive.

    The tech billionaires, even more than the old fossil fuel crew like the Birchite Charles Koch, are apt to believe weird Master Race theories. Eric Schmidt, Peter Thiel, Robert Mercer, the whole reeking crew, including the brat Zuckerberg—they believe they have all that money and power, not because they got lucky, or because they inherited vast wealth from Daddy, or because the system is rigged, or because the Winklevi didn’t move fast enough, or all of the above, but because they are superior beings with Natural Rights.

    The logical next step is that because they are more evolved than we lumpen types, they have a right to move the rest of us around like pieces on a chessboard and, if it amuses them, to shitcan us arbitrarily, whether because it’s useful to them, or simply because they find it droll—superior beings really don’t have to have a reason.

    The damage these vain men are doing to human society (and to the earth itself) is beyond reckoning—it is probably irreparable as well. It’s a shame that none of them will ever pay a price for what they’ve done to the Enlightenment, to democracy, to humanity. They are all living, breathing arguments for the virtues of tumbril and guillotine.

    • I remember that censoring conservative news thing.
      News is /not/ conservative or liberal. Either it is news, or it is political opinion. And opinions are allowed to be censored specifically when they are spreading misinformation and lies. That is an ok thing!
      I figured Zuck’s capitulation was staged so he could have an excuse to fire unneeded human people.

      • DrBigHead

        Yes. the Dems need to start presenting very specific plans of action — address specific problems in a clear way.

        • The red base does not watch any tellie not Fox News or read any actual newspapers anymore.
          Ads should be all billboards, big ones, with simple messages like
          “Your state is 40th in the entire country because of the GOP”
          Over and over and over again.

        • Vagenda and Pee-ara

        Dems simply cannot do that stuff.

      • Sigurd

        I’m not sure what it is with him, but I find him really off-putting, yes. Maybe it’s that he never seems really genuine. And you may well be onto something there too.

        TBF, he seems excellent as an empty vessel to be an officer for an (un)dead empire.

      They hate Globalists so much, but they don’t mind stealing away everyone else’s money and resources, all the while using corrupt operatives from some of those same countries.

      They’re Globalists, all right. They want to own the globe.

      • Sigurd

        I am… not _entirely_ sure what this means. Or maybe I sort-of do.

        Let me just say, I love ..globalisation as such. But not how that’s working out right now.

        • SeeTrain65

          They have their own version of “Globalism.’

          And it’s not the kind readily accepted as true Globalism. They want the world for themselves … and ONLY THEMSELVES.

          • Sigurd

            Does that mean .. we’re getting to the ..eh.. real revolution? It cannot last I feel.

            Sometimes I’m ‘accused’ of wanting a ‘new world order’. Well, duh, yes I do.

            It’s sometimes hard to see the moment though: between idoicy and technology taking over human life .. and the moment to turn things around and actually use what we have for a better future.

          • SeeTrain65

            I don’t feel any type of “real revolution” coming anytime soon. At least not here. Corruption is not only rampant, but encouraged by those in power and cheered by the morons who put them there.

            The “I got mine, you get yours” mentality is not conducive to a functional government or a functioning society. Those on their side don’t care or at least don’t want to think about it. We do all the worrying. And while we worry, they continue to take. From everyone, everywhere.

          • Sigurd

            It is… unfortunately …so hard to even to do any consistent reformism, let alone revolution.

            I feel there is .. there must be a limit though. When people say, fuck this shit: ..eh, fuck off and/or die.

            And really, it’s not good when it has to come to that, because any actually violent ‘revolution’, brings the worst people to leadership and power. That is.. the people who are willing to kill and destroy.

            Which aren’t the people you want in charge.

  • calliecallie

    This opioid crisis just makes me crazy. How did it start? Big Pharma marketing their pain pills to every doctor in the country, doctors prescribing said pain pills like they were candy buttons on Halloween. Next thing you know everybody’s addicted. And yet there are still pills out there to be had. Who’s manufacturing all those pills. I know some are coming in from China, but it seems to me there are other ways to curb this crisis than just telling the poor folks who are addicted to pain pills to just suck it up.

    • The American answer to every problem for the poor has been “suck it up” throughout history.
      Few bright shining moments involving New Deals aside.
      They go with what they know

    • jaspersdad

      Clearly the War on Drugs, now having been waged for over a century (starting with the U.S. Harrison Narcotics Act of 1914), has been a complete failure. The current ‘opioid crisis’ is simply further proof that the current approaches are ineffective and inappropriate. I think Portugal got it right.

      • Old town Urbandale

        Oh, come on, admit that Nancy Reagan and Just Say No completely turned America against pot smoking. /s

      • Impatient

        War on drugs:
        – Penalize the poor
        – Prey on/destroy the poor
        Hey, guys! Neat-O! This works both ways!

        • Ahem, you missed a step:
          – Penalize the poor
          – Prey on/destroy the poor
          -Send them to for-profit prisons

    • jesterpunk

      Also tv commercials “ask your doctor about this drug”.

      • Martini Ambassador 🍸

        I mean, all those TV folks taking the pills look so happy and well-adjusted, how could taking a few more meds hurt?

    • BosGrl

      The reason so many people are dying today is that, after flooding the market with the pills, it became a street drug, sold at crazy prices. When the price was too restrictive, people suffering from PAWS (post-acute withdrawal syndrome) were in such pain, they turned to heroin. This was bad enough, because oxy and heroin will kill you, eventually, and of course too much in one go will kill you as well. But then dealers added the wildcard, fentanyl, and now carfentinil, which basically kills you on the spot. So telling someone to “just say no” is both cruel and ridiculous. When I think back to the ’80s, taking random pills was idiotic, but the fear was doing something stupid in front of your friends or having to get your stomach pumped, not instant death. It’s different now. It’s not just kids, it’s old people, too. Old people are turning to dealers. Now the dealers are taking legitimate oxys and percs and dipping them in fent and selling them to the unaware. Why do they want to kill their customers? I have no idea but I suspect it’s the same reason why people own private jails. Because the people at the top of this opioid food chain are white and have soft hands.

      • calliecallie

        I didn’t get to finish my earlier rant because I had to work for a living, but the rest of this is that people on the pain killers get constipated, so then Big Pharma invents their constipation drug and advertises it all over the place. People dying of overdoses? Big Pharma comes through with NarCan and EMTs and hospitals and even school districts start stocking up.

        Is the opioid crisis on this scale unique to the US? I’d be willing to bet it is. And I blames those people with the soft white hands.

        • BosGrl

          Well, I can’t complain about the Narcan, because it does bring people back. But yes, they create the crisis and then they’re there to provide “solutions”. This also extends to shady “rehab” facilities, where people are getting rich billing insurance companies but not actually providing any treatment.

      • Impatient

        On some of our sub patrols, in the later 70s, we operated out of Rota, Spain. It was really eye-opening to see our Marines guarding the inner side of the double gate, and a pair of the Guardia Civil’s men with small machine guns (like Uzis?) guarding the other side. In their drab green uniforms, I got the impression that they’d ‘go to war’ in an instant. While lots of sailors can be stupid, lots of the time, nobody ignored the warning “Don’t mess with the Guardia Civil.”

        I found it very heartening to hear, a few years later, that King Juan Carlos helped to contain an attempted return by the fascists. Though the subsequent “Spain is for Spaniards” move did kick out some of my favorite barmaids. It wasn’t until years later that a coworker, a dual U.S./Spanish citizen, explained to me that Spain had been incredibly poor then, when all I saw was quaint old town. I’m sure things aren’t all better now.

        Yeah, Spain could be right back there any time. Though they’re not alone.

    President Trump said yesterday the opioid crisis is the worst drug problem this nation has ever faced. Once again he displays a complete lack of knowledge regarding American history. At the turn of the 20th century America had a huge drug problem. The Pure Food & Drug Act went a long way to cleaning that up. Until some corporations learned there was money to be made peddling dangerous prescription drugs. But this Administration isn’t going to go after them.

    I thought we already had several debates on white nationalism – a short list would include the Civil War, Brown v. Board of Education, and the Civil Rights Act of 1964. They lost. They are clearly bad losers.

    • Rocket Pony Ron

      They don’t see them as losses. They see them as temporary setbacks.

    How ’bout some good news? Remember when Bull O’Really? and other idiots were crowing about InSannity’s ratings? What happened? Easy – reality set in.

    Rachel Maddow Pummels Hannity in Primetime Ratings Victory After Fox News Rearranges Schedule
    Oct 24, 2017 1:02pm PDT by News Corpse

    A few weeks ago Fox News was forced to make some drastic prochanges. They had to terminate Bill O’Reilly due to multiple allegations (and settlements) of sexual harassment. They should have seen that coming since they renewed his contract with knowledge of a massive $32 million payoff. And there was another $13 million to half a dozen other victims. Fox News also fired Eric Bolling, the host of the newly launched The Specialists, for sexual misconduct. Do you notice a pattern?

    With these cancellations there were holes in the schedule that needed to be plugged. Consequently, Fox News decided to move Sean Hannity’s 10:00 pm show into O’Reilly’s slot at 9:00 pm. This put him into a head-to-head battle with MSNBC star Rachel Maddow. It also firmed up Fox’s primetime as three hours of fawning Trump-fluffing, beginning with Tucker Carlson, then Hannity, and the all new Laura Ingraham Angle. It’s been four weeks since Hannity’s move and the ratings already have a story to tell.

    Hannity is, without a doubt, Donald Trump’s most cloying sycophant on Fox News. He serves as an advisor to the White House and relentlessly defends any and all Trump atrocities. As for Trump, he posts frequent promotional tweets about Hannity (seventeen just since the inauguration) and has sat for three interviews as President.
    Hannity front loaded the first week in his new time slot with high profile guests chosen to spike ratings. They included Fox favorites like Steve Bannon, Bill O’Reilly, and Rush Limbaugh. The second and third weeks, however, were skewed by coverage of the tragic shooting in Las Vegas and its aftermath. But now, as the new schedule settles in, Maddow has returned to the top spot. The hopes Fox News had for toppling Maddow by moving Hannity into direct competition have not succeeded, at least so far.

    One of the consequences of that failure is that other Fox News programs are getting scared and beginning to attack Maddow in an effort to blunt her success. For example, Fox and Friends did a whole segment on Maddow’s analysis of the death of four Green Berets in Niger. They never laid a glove on her. In fact, they never even bothered to substantively counter anything she said. They just made catty comments about her demeanor and complained that she has opinions. But just the fact that they talked about her is evidence they are scared. If they didn’t think that Maddow was having an impact, Fox would have ignored her. And she is definitely having an impact.

    For the week of October 16, Maddow decisively beat her new competition, Sean Hannity. In the critical 24-54 demographic, she won three days out of five outright, and took the whole week’s average. On Wednesday she had the highest rated program on all of cable news. Her powerful leadin helped The Last Word with Lawrence O’Donnell to win his time period as well. Even Brian Williams’ The Eleventh Hour came out on top. As a result of these victories MSNBC won the entire week in primetime.

    Television ratings are a fluid measure of popularity and can be influenced by many factors. Breaking news, popular guest bookings, and competing programs across the dial can shuffle the numbers. But the performance of Maddow’s show after being put to the test by Fox’s highest ratings draw is significant. It shows that quality journalism will find its audience. And even if Fox News has a built-in cult status for tunnel-blind partisans on the right, it isn’t enough to overcome well produced, researched, and presented reporting that is honest and touches the lives of all Americans.

      Excellent presentation. A+

      I think one of the most important things Rachel does is give important context to the day’s leading issue. Her long lead-in can feel tedious sometimes, but she always delivers in the end, having provided a comprehensive review of how we got from Point A to ‘Today, We Are Here’.

      • TundraGrifter

        Agreed. I just wish she didn’t have to say the same thing three or four times. Once is enough. Move on and cover more ground. But she repeats herself endlessly and over time it can be very wearing.

        • Courser_Resistance

          I haven’t noticed, but I don’t doubt you one bit. It’s an old teaching rule of thumb to reach as many students (people) as possible. Repeat each thing 3 times. Present it 3 different ways, if possible, so even the slowest students catch on. It’s also why those really crappy radio ads scream the phone # at you 3 or 4 times.

          • TundraGrifter

            I can see it with phone numbers. With Ms. Maddow no matter how big or small the point she repeats it. Best to keep moving and link the thoughts together.

    • Villago Delenda Est

      The thing is, if the dolts of Faux and Fiends had any brains at all, they could have laid a glove on Maddow’s reportage of the Niger thing.

      But they didn’t. They’re incompetent.

    I’m sure Carlson was apoplectic over why it took Hillary Clinton several days to denounce Harvey Weinstein. And here he is sticking up for Halperin, whose hackwork helped defeat Clinton.

    Gee, I’m starting to think he might not be objective about this whole sexual harassment thing.

      Hint: he works at Fox News. With outed harassers Ailes, Bolling, and O’Reilly.

    Even though we still don’t have a financial report, Republicans are hoping to close Uncle Sam’s coin purse in order to kill the Trump-Russia investigation.

    I am cuing up the GoFundMe for this now.

      Like liberals don’t have guns. True fact ~ gun sales have soared with black women.

      • miss_grundy

        Well, that’s the point, isn’t it. They are too stupid to understand that there are liberals who grew up in parts of the country in which hunting was a family activity. These RWNJs think they own that sport.

      Because Steve King is a stupid nutjob hack.

    Oh, we know, we just can’t prove anything.

    Not that Republican voters would believe any amount of proof anyway.
