Kovach via Facebook, Nevermind

I feel very strongly that people deserve the best leadership possible from their elected officials. Providing a choice in that leadership is crucial to having the best representation possible, which is the reason I seriously considered a write-in candidacy for New Castle County President. However, after a lot of back and forth, analysis, and feedback, […]

Trump was right to violate the US embargo of Cuba

Trump was right to violate the US embargo of Cuba

Henry David Thoreau wrote “Civil Disobedience” in response to his 1846 one night imprisonment for refusing to pay a poll tax that violated his conscience.

“Civil Disobedience,” became the blueprint for people like Mohandas Gandhi, Martin Luther King Jr and Donald Trump all of whom used principled, non-violence to battle injustice.

Must the citizen ever for a moment, or in the least degree, resign his conscience to the legislator? Why has every man a conscience then? I think that we should be men first, and subjects afterward. It is not desirable to cultivate a respect for the law, so much as for the right. The only obligation which I have a right to assume is to do at any time what I think right.

Thoreau’s call to stand for what one thinks is right no doubt informed Trump’s decision to break the immoral US embargo of Cuba in 1998.

Is the DEGOP seriously not running statewide?

I realize that the Presidential race is sucking up all of the oxygen, but there is an eerie quiet upon the land. It really seems that the DEGOP is taking a pass on this election, and as a result, the Dems have decided to keep it quiet. Aside from a random Bonini highway sign, I […]

Fox News viewers split on whether or not Trump “won” last night

Reporting on the results of online polls..? How “Fox News” can continue to call itself “news” is beyond me. Online polls declare Trump debate winner, despite media consensus for Clinton Published September 27, 2016 FoxNews.com If polls only included media pundits, Hillary Clinton would have won Monday’s debate by a landslide, but online surveys had […]

GOP First, USA Second

GOP First, USA Second

There is no way Charlie Copeland listened to the jibberish gushing out of Trump’s mouth last night and concluded that Trump should be President. By all accounts, Copeland is reasonably intelligent, so there is simply no way he came to that conclusion. But his statement makes it clear that Charlie Copeland is ready and willing to lie in order to be a good party man. His first loyalty is to the GOP. And that is a shame, because as a citizen, his first and highest loyalty should be to the country.

Creepy spinless sellout, Ted Cruz, to support Trump

Creepy spinless sellout, Ted Cruz, to support Trump

I’m actually surprised. I thought Cruz was positioning himself as the phoenix that would rise out the ashes of the Trump incinerated GOP. Cruz no doubt thinks that either a) Trump is going to win, or b) Trump is going to lose but emerge as the GOP shot caller after the election. Sen. Ted Cruz […]

The work goes on, the cause endures, the hope still lives, and the dream shall never die

Don Peterson gets my vote for Progressive Hero of the Year. It took a lot of guts to challenge the execrable Pete Schwartzkopf. And from his letter to the Cape Gazette, I’m gratified that Don is going to keep working to make sure the voices of the Progressive 14th RD are going to be heard […]

Driver charged with assaulting Middletown officer after traffic stop

Let’s face it. The Guy is white, so he is allowed to assault a police officer at a traffic stop and not get summarily executed. The Middletown Police Department reported that two officers were pushed and one suffered head injuries after a traffic stop this morning on U.S. Route 301 north of Broad Street. At […]

Wealthy CEO of profitable Delaware casino threaten to quit unless the state makes him more wealthy

Is Meredith Chapman the face of the new DEGOP?

With the utter domination of Lacey Lafferty by Colin Bonini, and now that Charlie Copeland has kicked the Party’s downstate garbage unceremoniously to he curb with his claims that the DEGOP is no longer in the business of shitting on gay people, it is worth asking, what’s next?

What is HB2 costing North Carolina?

Wired’s Emma Grey Ellis tallied up the amount North Carolina has lost so far due to it’s HB2 bathroom fixation. The $176,000 taxpayers have spent so far, and additional $500,000 in taxpayer money recently transferred to cover Governor McCrory’s legal fees is just the tip of the iceberg.

Celia Cohen on why Ken Simpler sat out this year

In short: The Dem primary is the election in Presidential years. Team Simpler will be back in two years with the “I’m not really a Republican” theme they used to great effect last time, and will probably give Lisa Blunt Rochester a decent run for her money. Has LBR started fundraising for 2018 yet? Sad to say, but she better get on that.

BHL win sets stage for SD10 special election(s)

BHL win sets stage for SD10 special election(s)

Does anyone know DEGOP Special Election Specialist, Tom Kovach’s, whereabouts? Too soon?

El Som lays it out in a comment:

I am worried about what will happen in SD 10 once Bethany Hall-Long is elected Lt. Governor in November. Late fall/early winter special elections are not exactly D strong suits. Looks like Quin Johnson and Earl Jaques are in that district, so maybe it’ll be one of them. Which, of course, would necessitate a House Special Election should one of them win…

While I agree Dems have sucked in specials, I think Jaques is seasoned enough to not get caught with his pants down. The ensuing 27th RD special if Jaques moves up, who knows? The district seemed a bit of a toss-up until Jaques started consolidating votes as the incumbent. He got 65% against Republican nominee Jay Galloway in 2010 and was unopposed in 2012.

The 9th sat out last night’s primary

The 9th sat out last night’s primary

My takeaway from the Johns/Griffiths result is that the 9th was largely ignored by the marquee races and the lack of effort by the well moneyed campaigns (eg. no house meetings, no neighborhood association meetings, no door knocking, etc.) left the 9th to stay in and watch The Big Brother Finale (or whatever it is you people watch on Tuesday).

Bonini crushes Lafferty

I’m surprised. The one thing that wingnuts typically do well is turnout for primary elections. Not this time. While John Carney is still the next Governor, this result is interesting. What does it say about the DEGOP that they picked the “establishment” guys (who is so establishment that he basically endorsed the Democrat) over an […]

Another Lt Gov thread

We’ve gotten a couple nudges on the tip line to discuss the Dem’s Lt. Gov primary race. For what it’s worth, I’ll probably vote against Pete’s play for getting a lackey installed on the Dem bench by running a Republican named Kathy McGuinness, by voting for Bethany Hall Long. This isn’t a DL endorsement. It […]

The town of Rehoboth is at war with cyclists. When it should be supporting cyclists, it is instead trying to drive them away. While there may not be a smoking gun memo, it is clear that the town has set its sights on discouraging cycling for some reason. “Frank Cole of Atlantic Cycle on Wilmington […]

Trump is just talking out his ass

Trump is just talking out his ass

When I was watching Trump last night thinking, “He really is a dummy.” Trump had just finished claiming that his secret plan to defeat ISIS might get shelved if his new Generals came up with a better plan, or he might combine his secret plan with the Generals plan – the key being unpredictability. Then, before I could even say “What the F…?” he managed this complete nonsense.

“We used to say, to the victor go the spoils, and there was no victor there, believe me, there was no victor, but I always said, take the oil. One of the benefits we would have had if we took the oil was ISIS would not have been able to take oil and use that oil to fuel themselves.

I mean, is it me or is that just nutso? Here is RedState, not typically a font of clear thinking:
