I’m with respected blog colleague Kay in thinking that it makes little sense to blame the Youngs for the horrifying possibility that Trump could be elected because of millennials’ insufficient fealty to the Democratic nominee. Yes, anyone who is determined to throw a vote away on sentient Caucasian dreadlock Jill Stein* or human bong avatar Gary Johnson deserves a clue-by-four upside the noggin.
But it’s the Olds — specifically, older white folks — who weaponized the ferret-wearing shit-gibbon. Let’s put the lion’s share of the blame where it truly belongs.
I think I’ve talked all the millennials in my purview into backing Clinton. (Or possibly they’re lying to me to shut me the hell up.) That said, this piece from Tooney of the Twitters might be good Facebook fodder for the young idealists in your feed who’ve bought into the purity brigade’s anti-Clinton smears:
Everyone needs to share this on their Facebooks and whatnots.

In conclusion, here’s a front-page shout-out to indefatigable campaign volunteer recruiter BR, who had this to say in the morning thread:
Morning reminder to sign up to volunteer for the campaign. Just takes 30 seconds and is crucial for November. There are lots of things you can do, so please sign up today for just one event. Let me know if you have questions.
Well done, BR. And thank you!
