If that is indeed the view of the Remain campaign, they are crowing too soon. They are perhaps ignoring the resilience and thoughtfulness of many middle-of-the-roaders. One senior public servant – a man of no political party, and who had previously been on the fence – texted me after the US intervention and said he had been so outraged at President Obama’s “back of the queue” remark that he had instantly decided to vote Leave.

“I’m always telling my young son, Baron. I’m always with my kids, all of them. I’d say, children, small little bites,” Trump said. “This guy takes a pancake and he shoves it in his mouth. It’s disgusting. Do you want that for your president? I don’t think so. I don’t think so. Honestly, it’s disgusting.”
Well, my mother and especially my grandmother would agree with him. They abhorred bad table manners. I confess mine are not what they should be but at least I know it.
We show that migrating extremists shape political landscapes toward their ideology in the long run. We exploit the unexpected division of the state of Upper Austria into a US and a Soviet occupation zone after WWII. Zoning prompts large-scale Nazi migration to US occupied regions. Regions that witnessed a Nazi influx exhibit significantly higher voting shares for the right-wing Freedom Party of Austria (FPÖ) throughout the entire post-WWII period, but not before WWII. We can exclude other channels that may have affected post-war elections, including differences in US and Soviet denazification and occupation policies, bomb attacks, Volksdeutsche refugees and suppression by other political parties. We show that extremism is transmitted through family ties and local party branches. We find that the surnames of FPÖ local election candidates in 2015 in the former US zone are more prevalent in 1942 phonebook data (Reichstelefonbuch) of the former Soviet zone compared to other parties.
Video: Judge Napolitano says FBI has “overwhelming” evidence to indict and convict Clinton « Hot Air
We’ve discussed this here before and Napolitano expresses some of the same doubts as everyone else. It’s not a question of whether there’s sufficient cause to bring charges over the improper handling of highly classified information. That part seems more than clear. But there won’t be a conviction, a trial, or even an indictment without the backing of the Attorney General and, pretty much by default, the White House. Oh, sure… Barack Obama has claimed that he’d never dream of interfering in such an investigation and Loretta Lynch claims that it will all be handled “by professionals” without any political influence or direct interference from her. And if you believe that I have a bridge to sell you.
There it is.
Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe (D) on Sunday slammed Republicans who have complained about an executive order he signed extending the right to vote in his state to convicted felons who have served their sentences.
"Well, I would tell the Republicans, 'Quit complaining and go out and earn these folks' right to vote for you. Go out and talk to them,' " he said in response to a question about people saying his order was an election-year ploy to help Democratic presidential front-runner Hillary ClintonHillary Rodham ClintonTrump rips Virginia governor on felon voter rights O'Malley endorses Van Hollen in Senate race Clinton: Trump is out of touch MORE.ADVERTISEMENT
"I think some of the language that has come out of the Republicans, I would tell them to be very careful at how they frame this, very careful of their rhetoric."
McAuliffe is a longtime ally of Clinton and served as a chairman of her campaign in 2008.
All the jokes I can think of are too obvious.

WINDSOR, United Kingdom - The Queen banned Obama from landing a dozen helicopters at Windsor Castle because last time he visited six of them ruined the lawn. The 90-year-old monarch is said to have told aides the helicopters were ‘over the top’ and they would be limited to three.
You tell 'em, Queen.
