  • Now that Wikileaks has ripped the bandage off, we're getting more inside details about what a disaster the operations of the Democratic National Committee have been.
  • Your latest moment of unnecessary outrage (among many I'm sure): A North Carolina GOP Twitter account mistakenly thought vice president candidate Tim Kaine was wearing a Honduran flag pin at his speech at last night's Democratic convention.

  • Vice President Joe Biden and Attorney General Loretta Lynch are scheduled to speak at a memorial for three slain Baton Rouge, Louisiana, police officers.
  • German¬†Chancellor Angela Merkel says that she won't back down on the country's policy of accepting refugees in spite of the latest wave of attacks.
