Another Sexy Liberal weekend in the books, and Mama didn’t fall off the stage this time, like some short-circuiting robot, so it was excellent. Apparently though, Donald Trump is now trying to claim Hillary Clinton is a short-circuiting robot, even though he’s the one that sounds like a psychotic, malfunctioning Teddy Ruxpin.

In case you missed it, on Friday, at the National Assoc. of Black Journalists/National Assoc. Of Hispanic Journalists conference, Hillary Clinton held her first official press conference in some time (a fact too many Beltway media people have been whining about). When asked about the stupid email nontroversy yet again, she mentioned that she may have “short-circuited” her answers about it a few times, instead of giving a long, drawn out explanation.

To no one’s surprise, Donald and his people took that turn of phrase and ran with it – though in Donald’s case, as usual, it’s less ‘run’ and more like ‘stumbled over the words as they dribbled out of his mouth, like an animal with rabies.’

For his part, Trump did finally stop the political bleeding from another of his self-imposed wounds over the weekend, finally endorsing Paul Ryan, John McCain, and Kelly Ayotte, who are now stuck even closer to him than they were before.

The plan for Trump so far this week? Announce a new economic plan to let Wall Street do pretty much whatever the hell it wants and get rid of the pesky inheritance tax for his millionaire kids. Meanwhile, team Clinton/Kaine are going to be campaigning in Texas – because Democrats might do far better there than previously thought.

Oh – and the Olympics started and Team USA is kicking everyone’s ass already. Not a bad way to start August.
