    Peanut has discovered Michael Jackson. Started with Thriller. Now she is on YouTube, going through his videos. She currently loves Remember The Time- she has watched it 5 times so far.
    Sigh. Michael’s genius has another fan.

    Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus sent a letter to NBC News saying the GOP is “suspending the partnership” with the network for a February debate.

    Priebus, who made his letter public on social media, wrote that the CNBC debate “was conducted in bad faith” with a series of “gotcha” questions.

    The partnership was suspended “pending further discussion between the RNC and our presidential campaigns,” according to Priebus.

    Still thinking about the student assaulted by Ofc. Ben Field.

    “Let me be clear, EVERY SINGLE STUDENT says this student was quiet THE ENTIRE CLASS. All she did was look at her cell phone.”

    Students “disrupt class” and get a criminal record.

    An officer brutally assaults a teenager girl and simply loses his job.

    There is a MoveOn petition to charge Ofc. Ben Fields with assault that has 111,830 signatures:

    Clinton seeks to build African-American bulwark
    10/30/15 06:00 AM EDT

    Hillary Clinton is seeking to ramp up her enthusiasm and support among African Americans.
    Clinton already holds a huge advantage among black voters compared to her top rival for the Democratic nomination, Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.).
    An NBC-Wall Street Journal poll this month found Clinton maintaining a 54-point lead over Sanders among African Americans

    The Vetting of Rubio Gets Serious
    By Ed Kilgore

    With his strong performance at Wednesday night’s CNBC debate, compounded by a Jeb Bush performance that seems to look worse the more it recedes in the rear-view mirror, Marco Rubio can now for the first time plausibly claim to be the Establishment favorite for the Republican presidential nomination, and its best hope of heading off a disastrous Trump, Carson or Cruz nomination.

    But he’s going to have to survive a real vetting, and the question is whether it will come from the media or from the campaign of a rival. The raw materials are there for some real problems: the man has a history of shaky personal finances, misuse of other people’s money, and reliance on politically connected sugar daddies. He also has a generic response that fits in nicely with his son-of-a-bartender-and-a-maid aspirational message: unlike many of his rivals, he’s not a trust fund baby or the son and brother of presidents, and hasn’t worked for Lehman Brothers or married someone who works for Goldman Sachs. So yeah, he’s struggled to pay bills.
