It's been a hell of a week, hasn't it? I know everyone here at Crooks and Liars is pretty well exhausted after last week's fiasco of a convention. I expect the Democratic convention this week is going to be a breath of fresh air after the lying, vitriol, hatred and fearmongering we were all subjected from Trump and his sideshow at the RNC.
I expect all of the Republican talking heads to be out in full force this Sunday trying to put the best spin on the train wreck possible while the knives come out for Clinton's choice for VP, Tim Kaine.
Here's the lineup for this week:
