David Waldman wishes he could be at Netroots Nation, but doesn’t everyone? It’s where all of the cool kids are,  and most of the cool adults, too.

Unfortunately, that leaves not much for Cleveland. The RNC keeps it upbeat and inspirational as always. The knife, tennis ball, and nunchuck lobbyists have been less successful as the NRA at the convention. Guns are coming to the convention, and the police will abide.

Greg Dworkin rounds up the polls and punditry as well as policy today. Hillary Clinton took a hit from the FBI, will take another from the Republican Convention, but top Dems are not particularly nervous. A lot of blue remains in the polls. Trump has a big advantage with white evangelicals. The RNC is still banning this movie poster, though.

Donald Trump horrifies historians, as he continues to propagate hatred and violence. Is some Trump support due to job losses from robotics?

Why should Trump make truckling doormat Chris Christie his VP choice? Von Clownstick hopes a 10 million dollar lawsuit shuts this guy up. 

Has America promoted anti-police violence by ignoring illegitimate policing?

Greg discusses the positive and negative repercussions rippling out from the introduction of Obamacare. Obamacare was written to save jobs, but now that is becoming a problem, as stethoscopes have replaced rivets as the lifeblood of the American economy. Now insurers are losing money and abandoning the system. What can be done to control rising health care costs? Obama assesses Obamacare.

David discusses the perils inherent in guns and penises. What counts as “accidental”, and how is that different than negligence? The Florida woman that left her gun on the floor of her car and was shot by her 4 year old is giving lectures and soon to be an NRA instructor. Armstrong Williams and his “oversized weapon” get into a sexual harassment suit. Tennessee Rep. Jeremy Durham and his “pants candy” get into trouble with a couple dozen Jane Does.

Here is the secret history of guns in America.
