No, ma’am: When you boo Barbara Boxer & Hillary Clinton, you’re booing America! (Sunday open thread)

**Written by Doug Powers

Another Sunday is upon us, and where I am it snowed this morning, so the science is settled on global warming!

Anyway, here’s an open thread for whatever’s on your mind. A few pieces of kindling to get the fire started…

Barbara “call me ‘ma’am’ again and I’ll have you gelded and tossed in a wood chipper” Boxer was booed for talking up Hillary Clinton on stage at the Nevada Dem convention, which is un-American, or something:

At Saturday’s event, Sanders supporters protested a set of convention rules that were eventually adopted and booed at mentions of Hillary Clinton.

“Boo all you want. Boo louder. Because you’re booing Bernie Sanders and you’re booing this country,” said California Sen. Barbara Boxer, a surrogate for Clinton.

This is the sound I hear in my head every time Boxer says something:

Possible preview of this summer’s convention(s) here.

President Obama wants Election Day to be a national holiday:

President Obama says the United States should look at what other countries do to encourage voting, including automatic registration, voting on weekends, or making Election Day a national holiday.

“We are the only advanced democracy that makes it deliberately difficult for people to vote,” Obama said in an interview with the student newspaper at Rutgers University, where the president delivers a commencement address this weekend.

Obama’s already done his part. With plenty of help from his administration, more Americans than ever have plenty of time to vote on the first Tuesday in November… or any other day for that matter.

How’s the Hillary campaign’s attempt to discredit Trump going?

The wind-up:

And the pitch:

Actual New York Times headline about the candidate running against the woman who’s married to Bill Clinton:

Meanwhile, this hasn’t earned even a whisper from the Times:

Former President Bill Clinton was a much more frequent flyer on a registered sex offender’s infamous jet than previously reported, with flight logs showing the former president taking at least 26 trips aboard the “Lolita Express” — even apparently ditching his Secret Service detail for at least five of the flights, according to records obtained by FoxNews.com.

Earlier this month we talked about a division of the Justice Department that is forbidding use of the words “felon” and “convict.” The Department of Education has gotten in on the act by discouraging colleges from asking job applicants if they’ve been “justice-involved individuals” — aka ever been convicted of any crimes.

It seems like only yesterday that the Obama administration was telling colleges to step up their vigilance on crime prevention.

Only a Wiccan ritual can save Bernie Sanders now!

Attending a rally for Bernie Sanders usually involves long lines and security screenings, but that wasn’t the case at an intimate, informal event Friday evening supporting the Vermont senator’s presidential campaign in a park here.

Instead of metal detectors, entrance required burning ceremonial sweetgrass.

Participants were “smudged,” meaning the smoke from the sweetgrass was wafted over them before they could enter the sacred circle and begin a Wiccan ritual to support Sanders ahead of Oregon’s primary on Tuesday.

“Welcome to the ‘Feeling the Bern ritual,’” Leigha Lafleur, 41, told the gathering as she prepared to lead them in the “amplification of positive energy of Bernie Sanders and the progressive movement.”

The scariest part is that no bystanders were willing to step in and save the child and the dog.

Have a good Sunday all!
