Ken Simpler was no fluke. He ran a great campaign that offered voters a legitimate alternative to the Democratic cadidate without exciting the passions of the idiot base of the DE GOP. While he caught a break facing off against Sean Barney, a guy with all the baggage of Tom Carper and none of the name recognition, nobody can deny that the Simpler campaign was a cut above the usual half-assery Copeland’s DEGOP has become know for.
Which raises the question, who is next? Can any of the Republican candidates that have announced for statewide offices inherit Simpler’s sober, sane, level-headed, and thereby winning positioning?
Let’s face it. These old fuckers think that they are the only people who can get anything done. People like Biden look around and they see a bunch of sad sack losers with their eyes locked on the little TV screens they carry around all the time.
Joe is running. Mark my words.
It is worth repeating. Dick Cheney, a guy who has been wrong about everything, a guy who still thinks the invasion of Iraq was a good idea, agrees with Senator Chris Coons the on the Iran nuclear deal. Former Vice President Dick Cheney plans to give a speech in September about the Iran nuclear deal […]
We could be guided by science, reason, and rationality, but that would conflict with our sacred duty to protect the profitability of oil, coal and natural gas companies.
4 out of 5 stars from me because of a slow last third. Otherwise, this is an excellent movie. Yes, it is a story as old as popular music (young artists with a innovative new sound get ripped off by managers and record companies, played against each other, etc.), but this time that story is […]
I can’t say that I’m sad to see Walker on the ropes. He is a evil, sick MF’er with big money backers, a gloss of respectability, and the ability to charm the feeble minded thereby making him one of the tougher GOP opponents in the general election.
Well, if current trends continue, it looks like Walker will continue to plague Wisconsin with his “tax cuts work” idiocy. From a peak of .40, Walker is now trading at .15 on Predictit.
It took a while for it to sink in, but now I get it. There is no real “news” anymore. When I was a kid, the news was a thing. On TV and in the “newspapers” reporters researched stories, and wrote down quotes. There was nobility in it. Reporters and their editors were arbiters of […]
Via Celia’s blog: The two latest people to announce their intention to announce that they are running for something are Ciro Poppiti and Jeff Cragg.
Poppiti, a lawyer who is the New Castle County register of wills, has designs on joining the Democratic field for lieutenant governor…
Poppiti was not ready to make it official on Tuesday, but he acknowledged he could have an announcement shortly.
“I feel like the baton is coming to me,” Poppiti said.
Is the Dem baton invested with greater magic than the Republican watermelon of doom? I guess we’ll see.
Cragg, the Republican candidate for governor in 2012, is said to be looking at insurance commissioner, although it would mean a primary. George Parish, a Republican who used to be the Sussex County clerk of the peace, is already running.
Bad news for Prop Joe.
Rick Perry Has Stopped Paying All of His Staffers
Here’s some information that will interest you if you’re placing (extremely nerdy) bets on who will be the first candidate to drop out of the 2016 campaign: Rick Perry has stopped paying all of his campaign staffers.
When I need something like a septic tank, or perhaps a GOP candidate for governor, I’m always sure to check out the paper place-mats at Dover’s Hollywood Diner.
If you get any strange mailings, or see any crazy signs, be sure to send them in.
From the Cape Gazette: Lewes-Rehoboth locals and tri-state supporters are invited to take part in a fundraising event to benefit Hillary for America Saturday, Aug. 22 in Rehoboth Beach. Event chairs include Claire Lucas, LGBT and Democratic activist, her partner Judy Dlugacz and Peter D. Rosenstein. Dlugacz is a human rights pioneer, founder and president […]
Roger Ailes has called it quits, thereby clearing Trump’s path to the nomination. I have to say, I’m shocked. I guess I’m one of those old timers who continues to expect common sense and rationality to eventually prevail. When it comes to the GOP nomination this year, that type of thinking is clearly useless.
I don’t know what to say about this Delaware Grapevine post, having covered everything in the headline.
FWIW, here is the DEGOP’s official reaction to the debate. (Notice how Copeland views the Republican primary voter’s fear as some mysterious force that has descended on the land, and not a contrivance of the Republican Party and Fox News.) “The debate ultimately gets weighed over the next three days on some of the sound […]
The idiot trio of Fox News hosts at night’s GOP presidential debate would not leave Trump alone. Was there a plan at Fox to do Jeb’s dirty work? Bret Baier baited him with the very first question, asking the candidates whether they’d promise to support the eventual nominee and forego an independent run. Only Trump […]
Roger Ailes, Fox News and the RNC won. Crazy-ass modern Republican economics (which have failed, and failed, and failed) won. The notion that we should bomb Iran rather than talk to Iran won big time. If you think the country would be better off with school vouchers and without Planned Parenthood – you won! Congrats.
This was not a debate, but a disgusting travesty. That our political process had devolved to this makes me sick. That those nine nit wits (and Ben Carson) got to stand up on a national stage and be taken seriously as candidates for high office is an absolute indictment of this country and its people.
William Henry Harrison read the military history of ancient Rome and Julius Caesar in Latin. Teddy Roosevelt spoke French, German, Greek and could read Latin. The collective brain power of the men on the stage last night couldn’t power a night light.
A lot will be written about who scored what points, but the bottom line is – Idiocy won. America lost.
Huckabee manifests the stigmata of Christ. (May or may not also speak in tongues.) Trump lights a cigar with a $1,000 bill. Jeb shocks everyone by speaking clearly and eloquently on a range of topics. Walker nervously looks at Koch brother’s private box for “thumb’s up” affirmations. Ben Carson looks sane standing next to Cruz. […]
It sounds like Bill Clinton cajoled and flattered Trump into jumping into the race. “Former President Bill Clinton encouraged Donald Trump to become more involved in GOP politics in a phone call a few weeks before the “Apprentice” star declared his presidential campaign, The Washington Post reported. The Post’s Robert Costa and Anne Gearan wrote: […]
Someone help me out. Specials are important, and Democrats typically suck at them.
I don’t know how to respond to the poll question on the right, should I pick “The Republicans” based on past performance?
I have been invited to a fundraiser for Eileen O’Shaughnessy-Coleman, and haven’t been invited to a fundraiser for David Bentz, but that doesn’t tell me anything. (I think I opted out of the DelDem mailing list because the drivel was depressing, but stayed on the DEGOP mailing list because Copeland’s drivel is hilarious.)
So what’s the scoop internet tubes? Work your crowdsourcing magic.
Details of today’s shooting are still emerging, but these are the facts we have so far:
1) It is “too soon” to talk about how this shooting fits into our approach to gun control.
2) Our approach to gun control makes it easy for anyone [even people who “exhibited extreme erratic behavior and has made ominous as well as disturbing statements”] to get guns legally and kill multiple people.
3) In spite of the fact that every other western industrialized country manages to restrict criminals and the mentally deranged from obtaining guns, any changes (and I mean ANY CHANGES) in our approach to gun control are impossible because they would naturally and inexorably lead to tyranny.
4) Congress and the national headquarters of the NRA are both places which restrict 2nd Amendment rights.
5) The NRA took in over $300 million in revenue in 2013.
