The best explainer on why Trumpcare failed

Filed in National by on March 25, 2017 3 Comments

“(GOP) opposition to Obamacare was like Benghazi. Peel away the layers of wingutese and there just wasn’t anything there. And as we’ve learned, elected Republicans aren’t any different from internet wingnuts these days. Sure some of them literally want people to die, but most of them just know wingnut word salad and don’t understand what […]

Rob Arlett wants to be surprised by illegal trash dumps again, this time within the DEGOP

Rob Arlett was recently in the news for being “amazed, appalled, disgusted and disappointed” by what a disgusting shit hole parts of Sussex had become during his tenure as a county councilman. Now he wants to be “amazed, appalled, disgusted and disappointed” all over again.

The speech I wish Pelosi had given

The President lost. Being a loser on something this big should be something he learns from. Losing is no fun, but he lost badly. Like any loser he needs to consider why he lost and try to think about how to not be such a loser who lost. Bottom line: Loser, lost. Loser.

White House lobbying to save Trumpcare broke the law

This is a White House that is too dumb and lazy to give a fuck about whether or not it is breaking laws. On Thursday morning, as the Trump administration frantically tried to save its deeply unpopular Affordable Care Act replacement bill, White House social media director Dan Scavino Jr. tweeted out a message to […]

Time to prep for loud and direct protest of Coons and Carper gutlessness

Time to prep for loud and direct protest of Coons and Carper gutlessness

Today DL contributors will visit the Wilmington office of Senator Chris Coons and hand deliver the letter below. It will be signed by members of the DL direct protest subgroup.

I’m sure we will all be keeping a close eye on Mr Coons’ actions over the next few weeks. If he and Carper lose their nerve (as some reporting suggests they are considering) we must act.

The political action group Network Delaware has stood up a strategic nonviolent organizing committee. Please comment below if you will be willing to take part in some protest action against Coons and/or Carper if they vote for the Gorsuch nomination to progress to the full Senate. – Thanks

Governor “My Hands are Tied” Carney sticks with Markell’s Budget Rec’s

He toured the state and had coffee klatch after coffee klatch, but (true to form) in the end, there was only one coffee klatch that mattered. Carney’s “shared sacrifice” budget largely parrots the budget fixes left to him by Jack Markell.

Coons pursues a downright horrible deal in the name of “moderation”

Filed in National by on March 23, 2017 19 Comments
Coons pursues a downright horrible deal in the name of “moderation” Politco reports that your representative in the US Senate, Chris Coons, is in talks to cut the worst deal in the history of the Senate, by voting for Cloture on Gorsuch in exchange for a Republican “promise” to not eliminate the filibuster on a future Supreme court nomination.

The deal Democrats would be most likely to pursue, the sources said, would be to allow confirmation of Gorsuch in exchange for a commitment from Republicans not to kill the filibuster for a subsequent vacancy during President Donald Trump’s term.

How does Chris Coons still think that he is NOT dealing with bad actors? He seriously can’t be this guileless. That is only the beginning of how stupid Coons’ plan is, though. This deal is Coons trading something (a yes vote for Gorsuch) for nothing (a promise NOT to do something). It is idiotic on its face.

CALL NOW!
Coons Wilmington: 302-573-6345
Carper Wilmington: 302-573-6291

It is times like this that I miss Mike Castle

It is times like this that I miss Mike Castle

Long time readers will remember my ongoing love/hate feelings for Mike Castle. I hated Castle’s down the line GOP voting record, but I loved his crazy rationalizations for why a sincere “moderate” like him needed to cast all of those party line votes.

I’m certain that is Castle was still in the house, he’d be voting with the GOP leadership to pass the bloody abortion known as Trumpcare. Then we’d get the anguished rationalization about how pained he was by having to “vote for this deeply flawed” legislation. It was always as full of pathos, and as cloyingly predictable as a Joel Osteen sermon on why God wants us all to be rich fuckers.

Delaware Democrats Blow It (again)

Delaware Democrats Blow It  (again)

When your political party is deeply unpopular because it stands for nothing, and has no coherent brand identity, (Thanks, Carper! Thanks, John Carney!) you are starting out any special election 100 yards behind the starting line, wearing a 40-pound weight vest. So it is not surprising that the Democratic Party’s lackluster party and brand building claimed another special election victim, as Hosfelt (R), trounced Kreiner (D) in a race for the Kent County Levy Court seat vacated by Bradley Eaby.

The 2nd District has 21,029 registered voters — 10,045 Democrats, 5,626 Republicans and 5,358 other. Delaware Dems turned out a pitiful 660 voters (7%) to the DEGOP’s 1,107 (20%). Even if you assume that ALL of Kent County District 2’s “Other” voters are stealth Republicans, the GOP still turned out 3% more voters than the Democrats.

This result raises an important question, what the fuck are Kent County Democrats doing? Seriously… what the holy fuck is going on when in these days of political unrest the County party can’t muster up more than 660 voters?

All Eyes on Carper and Coons

All Eyes on Carper and Coons

It is very simple. If they vote to invoke cloture… to close the Senate debate on the nomination of Gorsuch to the Supreme Court, they are voting for the validation of this President and this Presidency. They are voting to validate the Republican strategy of stealing a Supreme Court nomination from President Obama. They are voting to legitimize and normalize the Russian intervention in our political system.

They are putting a black mark on their respective records. A black mark that they must never be allowed to live down.

The Derp State

Filed in National by on March 21, 2017 22 Comments

I wondered what Draco Malfoy was doing yesterday asking Comey questions. Turns out that was Trey Gowdy being his regular Republican asshole self. Republicans like Gowdy are not elected to govern. they are elected to fuck shit up. Gowdy was doing his damnedest to fuck up those hearings yesterday. Muddy the waters. Give the wingnut press some molehills with which to build mountains of outrage among their empty headed subscribers and listeners. If you edited the Republican portions out of the hearings and listened to the Democratic and Republican sections separately, you’d never guess they were taking part in the same hearings…on the same day…on the same continent… during the same century.

When you think about it, Trump wasn’t elected to govern “The United States of America,” he was elected to fuck shit up in a country that only exists in the right-wing’s imagination. He is applying himself to that task with alacrity, and the results are splashing onto us here in reality. Steve Bannon, the most powerful man in Trump’s White House has a “disturbing history of bigotry, nihilism, and apocalyptic delusions” should not be allowed within 1,000 miles of power and yet, there he is. We are not Bannon’s fellow citizens. We are mere bystanders in the vicinity of the GOP’s mental breakdown trying to avoid random kicks and punches.

1 Trillion Bucks for Infrastructure Missing from Trump Budget

The Republican President said that the country would benefit from a $1 trillion investment in infrastructure. Anyone with a passing knowledge of the Republican President’s frequent lies said, “Sure we will.” That skepticism was well founded.

Carney Budget to propose shortfall covered by half new revenue and half spending cuts

Rumors are circulating that Governor “my hands are tied” Carney will propose a budget on Thursday that will seek to close a $350 million budget gap by cutting state expenses by $175 million while raising $175 million in new revenue. “New revenue” no doubt includes increases to “sin” taxes on cigarettes and liquor, because they […]

Maybe that is strong, but what else to call a collection of people who put up with this?

Located near Millville, the site contains every […]

Shorter Trump – “The buck stops there…at Fox News”

The President really is an idiot. President Donald Trump on Friday suggested his administration bore no responsibility for promoting a Fox News analyst’s baseless claim that British intelligence agency GCHQ spied on Trump for former President Barack Obama. In a joint press conference with German Chancellor Angela Merkel, a German reporter asked Trump about the […]

New shocking theory on Carney Coffee Klatches – They are real!

As Carney continues to meet with Delawareans in “budget reset” meetings, a shocking theory is rippling through the state. Carney honestly has no idea what he is going to do about the budget and is really expecting the retirees he is meeting with to come up with something. That he is really listening is both […]
