The Price I've Paid for Opposing Donald Trump — Trump's alt-right trolls have subjected me and my family to an unending torrent of abuse that I wouldn't wish on anyone. — I distinctly remember the first time I saw a picture of my then-seven-year-old daughter's face in a gas chamber.
Nancy French / Washington Post:Fucking morons. This is exactly what your little friends are like: Hate-filled racists, bitter & filled w/ resentment. Don't pretend you're any better, hypocrites.
What it's like to experience the 2016 election as both a conservative and a sex abuse survivor — “Should we pick him up?” The preacher pointed to the side of the road to a hitchhiker. — “No!” I shrieked, but the idea was intoxicating. I'd lived in a one-festival town my whole life.Discussion:

H.R. Camp, sure ("LOCK 'EM UP!") but even more likely to end as a red spot beneath a tank tread, or bleeding to death while crying for his "mama". (If he actually tried whatever he can for his country beyond idle threats. Not bloody likely, wouldn't you say?) What a fucking punk.

Take that, Washington elites selling America's sovereignty to the international bankers & rootless cosmopolitans!Roberts went against usual practice and brought in closer Kenley Jansen, who is rarely seen before the 9th inning. Jansen got himself in trouble a couple of times but hung in until the 9th, only leaving after he had thrown a career-high 51 pitches and put two runners on by walks.
Enter Clayton Kershaw, the Dodgers ace starter making his first relief appearance in years. He had pitched two nights earlier, making 110 pitches then, so this was a very unorthodox move by Roberts. It was Kershaw's idea, Roberts said after the game. His lefty got the Nats most dangerous hitter, Daniel Murphy, who had done so much damage to the Dodgers in the playoffs last year, while he was still with the Mets, including two home runs off Kershaw. This time Kershaw got Murphy to pop up for the second out. The only batter left on the Nats bench was rookie Wilmer Difo, and he was no match for Kershaw. He struck out swinging. With that, the Dodgers advanced to the National League Championship Series and will face the Cubs.
