"Russia's Trump" says America must elect Donald Trump or prepare for nuclear war

An ultra-right Russian politician aligned with Vladimir Putin says American voters should elect Donald Trump for president, or prepare for nuclear war. Vladimir Zhirinovsky likes to compare himself to Trump, and is a similarly unrestrained blowhard.

"Americans voting for a president on Nov. 8 must realize that they are voting for peace on Planet Earth if they vote for Trump,” he said. “But if they vote for Hillary it's war. It will be a short movie. There will be Hiroshimas and Nagasakis everywhere." Read the rest

"Nerds For Her" unites fandoms behind Hillary Clinton

On its official store, the Hillary Clinton campaign sells merchandise centered on specific identities, like “Latinos for Hillary,” “Women for Hillary,” and “LGBT for Hillary.” And now a new independent organization called Nerds For Her is taking that idea one step further with fandom-themed designs like “Wizards For Her,” “Ham4Her,” and “Time Lords w/ Her.”

According to the site's description:

Let’s face it: Hillary Clinton is a nerd.

She’s a policy wonk. She’s smart and knowledgeable. She’s ambitious. In school, she studied hard and got good grades. She started clubs. Does this sound like anyone you know?

Maybe we are talking about Hermione (who happens to have grown up to become Minister for Magic). But we could also be talking about so many other female heroes who have been discounted, disrespected, and held to completely different standards than their male colleagues; heroines who have had to work twice as hard and be twice as smart, just to have a voice at the table.

….

All of our heroes are flawed in some way. Like every leader before her, Hillary is not a perfect human, a perfect candidate, or a deus ex machina poised to unsnarl every conflict before the credits roll. But she is intelligent. She is tenacious. She is respectful and empathic. She is humble enough to listen and to learn from her constituents, and to evolve her positions in order to best represent the inclusive, progressive movement she has dedicated her life to serving. Intelligence, dedication, and empathy: these are the qualities that we need in a leader.
