Candidates For The Spin Room

By Sniffles

In our brief dip into the Sunday morning political gabfests (brief because we cats are about to head out to register voters), we heard a talking head say that the spin after tomorrow night's Presidential debate is going to be crucial.

So here are some rough n' tumble, take-no-prisoners, in-your-face folks we'd love to see spinning away for Hillary — and the kind of things we'd like them to say:

"What kind of a man roots for the economic crash that cost millions of people their jobs? Their homes? Their life savings? What kind of a man cheats students, cheats investors, cheats workers? I’ll tell you what kind of man. A man who must NEVER be President of the United States." —Senator Elizabeth Warren

"Mike Pence once said that when both parents work, children end up facing 'stunted emotional growth.' I'm a doctor. Let me tell you what actually stunts children's growth. Not having access to healthcare." —Governor Howard Dean

"You know, I happen to believe the crazy notion that people who weren't born with the same opportunities as you and me should be given the same opportunities as you and me. And all it takes to accomplish this is everyone. All of us. Or as a pretty kick-ass woman once said, it takes a village." —Sarah Silverman

"There beside me [on September 12, 2001] was Hillary Clinton. Hillary Clinton, the New York Senator. Hillary Clinton, my friend. She understood the pain my family, our city, our nation were under. She fought to help our city rebuild. And she delivered." —Congressman Joe Crowley

"It’s hard for many Americans to reconcile their romanticized fantasy of Main Street USA with today’s reality. But Mayberry isn’t coming back." —Kareem Abdul-Jabbar

And of course this man:
"Donald Trump, have you ever been to Arlington Cemetery? Go look at the graves of brave patriots who died defending the United States of America. You will see all faiths, genders and ethnicities. You have sacrificed nothing and no one." —Khizr Khan

Would Mr. Khan do it? Probably not. But it sure would make us PURR.
