Have we ever had an election choice like this?

In 1884, the electorate had to chose between a corrupt politician, who took money in exchange for favors and a New York misogynist.

The misogynist was a lawyer. He and his partners shared the sexual favors of a young lady. When she became pregnant he stepped forward to assume paternity. When one of his partners died he became the guardian of his daughter. When she became a teenager she fell in love with him. When she turned 21 they were married. In the White House.

She was the youngest First Lady in American history. He was the only president to be married in the White House. Grover Cleveland and Frances Folsom.

The loser in the election of 1884? James Blaine.

    I saw you on FOX this morning and replayed your segment three times. I thoroughly enjoy history and would love for your publicist to vigorously entertain making a deal with FOX for appearances with you often. It’s amazing how history keeps repeating itself!

  2. Speaking of history repeating itself:

    Doug needs to brush up on & talk more about the First US Civil War, because that’s what we’re headed.

    And World War as well.

    Actually in addition to brushing up on US History, it seems more appropriate to brush up on Russian History at this point. That’s because, they had a Civil War and World War occurring either concurrently or too close chronologically clustered together. And **THAT’S** the repeating history where we’re headed.

    Very interesting, rooting for the misogynist this time too, lol. Funny how mainstream media wants the corrupt one.

  4. Mainstream media like Chicago Tribune opinion piece says Hitlery’s head should roll!

    This is a sea change, even her favorite “PROPAGANDA PRESSTITUTE” has turned on her to cover their own asses!!!

    It appears the election circus should finish during the upcoming week.
