Our Republican senatorial candidates are running against someone who doesn’t even hold office

Hey, fellas, even the Wheeling Intelligencer has cut back on its anti-Hillary attacks

From Raw Story earlier today:

West Virginia Republican candidate for U.S. Senate Patrick Morrisey on Wednesday told Fox News that he was the best choice because he held the right positions “on all the issues that matter” like Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama.

Documenting the locals' anti-Clinton agenda 21

Two separate editorials -- I think they really miss her

If you read this blog last year, you recognize the title on this post. For new readers, last year our local "newspapers" attacked the Democratic candidate for president on an almost daily basis and I created this blog category to keep track of some of their more atrocious attacks. Why are they returning to Hillary? While I'm not . . .

Did Michael Flynn do something yesterday?

The story about Michael Flynn, Trump's former national security adviser, asking for immunity broke late yesterday afternoon. It made it to the evening network newscasts and was the featured story on the non-Fox cable news stations for most of the evening.
