MrJeff2000 Explains It All It’s a mad, mad, mad, mad, um what was I talking about again?

Rather than more election news, I turn to the annals of stupid true crime.

I give you the ongoing trial of Glenn Terry, arrested for the attempted kidnapping of his former attorney, Frank Tinari.

Why would be try to kidnap his former attorney?
How did he get caught?
Why do I think he is a stupid would-be criminal?

Patience, my friends, patience!

Yes, it's another election-based podcast mostly about Donald Trump.

But as the GOP's candidate implodes, he is spewing lies about how he cannot lose, the election will be rigged due to voter fraud. Is this a thing? No. And I've got some articles to back up my thesis.

WikiLeaks released another batch of emails purportedly from Hillary Clinton's campaign chief of staff John Podesta.

In one of them, he received a NEWSWEEK article attachment about Benghazi from Sidney Blumenthal.

The Russian government-controlled news agency Sputnik then EDITED the email and released it as an October Surprise. Less than one day later, Donald Trump read their "news blast" at a public forum, as an indictment of Clinton as Secretary of State.
Except it was completely wrong.

But does it matter at this point? Who are these undecideds and are they really that blind to what is happening in this election cycle?

It sounds like a broken record but it's more indicative of a broken political system.

Donald Trump is losing the Presidential race. But to listen to him and his surrogates, he is in the lead and Hillary Clinton is doing everything underhanded to steal the election from him.

Newt Gingrich, Chris Christie, and Rudy Giuliani, the Three Stooges of the Apocalypse, will say any reprehensible thing because they crave power. Power that the next President of the United States could bequeath to them.

Luckily, at this rate, it won't be Donald Trump.

This week's podcast returns to the theme of minor obsessions.

There is (still) a free loyalty rewards program called viggle.com.

You get points for "checking into" TV shows and pop songs with your phone.

You can then exchange those points for merchandise or gift cards.

I decided to use those points to get my son an iPad several years ago.

And the minor obsession began.
