On the ABC comedy American Housewife, Katie Ott bemoans Raisinets by saying they’re like “health food in a perfectly good bag of candy.” In this episode, I consider their depiction of Republicans as the unwelcome Raisinet in my candy bag. The only difference is that I can’t take it out.

In “The Real Halloween” episode of ABC's The Real O'Neals, Kenny tries to celebrate his first “gay” Halloween by, of course, going to a raunchy gay party in Boystown. His mother Eileen denies him permission for obvious reasons but allows him to host a party at their house with any gay people he can find, thinking he won’t find any. From there, he invites gay students from another school to help gay up his party.

NBC reporter and Hillary Clinton fan club president Andrea Mitchell showed off her infatuation with the Democratic presidential nominee Tuesday evening, as she wrote off the massive 25 percent ObamaCare premium hikes as part of a series of “nagging problems.” “A second problem, the rise in Obamacare premiums, an issue [Donald] Trump is exploiting,” Mitchell whined during her report on NBC Nightly News.

WikiLeaks, Tuesday, exposed a massive lie President Barack Obama told to the American people following the first reports of Hillary Clinton’s private e-mail server. In March of 2015 Obama told CBS News’ Bill Plante that he learned about the server, “The same time everybody else learned it through news reports.” According to the newly leaked e-mails, that is not true because he had received e-mails from Clinton’s account. But ABC News didn’t think such a deception to the public warranted anytime at all, instead touting his appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live.

The Wikileaks email trove is revealing more than the servility of “objective” reporters trying to please Hillary Clinton and her aides. It’s also revealing their press strategy – how they seek to praise reporters, even as they arrogantly stonewall them.
One internal campaign e-mail exchange is salient. It discusses Mrs. Clinton speaking at an a Syracuse University event handing out the Robin Toner Prize for journalism, named after a deceased liberal New York Times correspondent.

Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, or Hillary the Inevitable if you're in the establishment press and ignoring three credible polls showing her either very slightly trailing or very slightly ahead of Donald Trump, appears not to be achieving the high degree of support or turnout that Barack Obama did among black voters in 2008 and 2012.
On Sunday, Hillary Campaign Manager Robby Mook dodged a question from Jake Tapper on CNN's State of the Union about indications that black turnout for the former Secretary of State in North Carolina during early voting has not been strong. Meanwhile, a black Trump supporter, who the press seems to believe can easily be turned into an object of ridicule, continues to run circles around them in interviews.
Jeffrey Toobin: As SCOTUS Moves Left, Clarence Thomas ‘Looks Destined’ For the Court’s ‘Even More Distant Fringe’By Tom Johnson | | October 25, 2016 | 9:52 PM EDT
When it comes to Supreme Court justices and their views of the Constitution, on the one hand there’s Clarence Thomas, and on the other there’s everyone else in the 227-year history of the Court, suggested CNN and New Yorker legal analyst Toobin in a Tuesday piece. Toobin called Thomas, who just marked a quarter-century as a SCOTUS justice, “not a conservative but, rather, a radical” who’s driven to advance “his own idiosyncratic interpretation of the Constitution.” Thomas’s jurisprudence is, in Toobin’s words, “reactionary” and “antediluvian.”

As part of its ongoing look at various U.S. Senate races, Tuesday’s CBS Evening News examined the Pennsylvania match-up between Republican Senator Pat Toomey and Democratic challenger Katie McGinty and framed the race as Donald Trump possibly dragging down Toomey while ignoring McGinty’s flaws and past.

New on October 24: On MSNBC’s AM Joy, Joy Reid featured leftist comedian Dean Obeidallah who denigrated Fox News viewers as “too lazy to join” the KKK and charged: “The name ‘Trump’ is becoming a modern day version of the Swastika. So I fear that this is an IV drip of hate.”

Washington Post columnist Dana Milbank on Tuesday dismissed the idea of media bias against Donald Trump and, instead, called for even more of it. According to Milbank, “press neutrality” on the businessman “legitimizes the illegitimate.”

Appearing on MSNBC’s Morning Joe this Tuesday, the BBC’s Katty Kay burst out laughing at attempts to compare Donald Trump’s campaign to the successful Brexit referendum and revolution in Britain.
On this Tuesday’s Morning Joe, exactly two weeks before election night, host Joe Scarborough initiated the discussion stating that “the Trump campaign has been saying for a week now that this is going to be America's Brexit.”

According to CBS This Morning’s Nancy Cordes, Hillary Clinton is “calling on the sisterhood” in the final weeks of the presidential election. The journalist used the loaded language while co-host Norah O’Donnell hyped the Democrat’s attempts to “finish off her opponent.”

"Oh, um. Let's see. Um. That would have been onnnn... Uhhhh.... Let's see if I have the date exactly... It would have been onnnnn.... 'Lock her up' would have been onnnn..."
No, I am not indulging in a bit too much of fermented extract of sugar cane. Instead I am directly quoting "conservative" Washington Post columnist Jennifer Rubin as she stuggled in a most hilarious fumbling way on The O'Reilly Factor last night to find a quote where the host supposedly made excuses for "lock her up."
