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 […]
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 […]
What a racket. I wonder what dover Downs CEO, Ed Sutor, is making in combined salary and bonuses? Whatever it is, he should bring his compensation package to the table when he goes to Leg Hall begging for more welfare.
Dear Tom Carper and Chris Coons,
If you want to know what a Democrat is, watch this clip inside. All of it.
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?
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. The Grand Total Adding all that up, […]
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.
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.
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).
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 […]
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 […]
From the FB page of Tom Noyes: The News Journal isn’t going to run this letter I submitted in support of Eugene Young, so I’ll just post it here. To the editor: Having served in Wilmington city government, I’ve worked directly with every one of the challengers in the mayoral primary, and genuinely respect them […]
The UD College Democrats’ did an excellent job with this Democratic Debate for Congress. It is definitely worth taking a look/listen before the polls open next week. Also, please notice Lisa Blunt Rochester’s absence. Multiple sources substantiate the fact that in mid-February, Blunt Rochester confirmed that she would appear, then backed out less than a […]
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:

The cool thing about being a contributor here is that there are times when you don’t have much to contribute,and that’s…okay. Commenters take up the slack.
Like now for instance. I have no bloody clue who is going to win these Dem primaries for Lt. Gov and US House a mere 7 days from now. No. Bloody. Clue. But USUALLY there are people who know stuff and they put that stuff in the comments section. Their information is, at time, tinged with wishful thinking, but often time it isn’t. It is the straight dope.
Not this time though. Nobody has any convincing info at all. It is all idle conjecture.
It is DL setting/code hacked or somehow gone wacky. Likely suspects include Tom Gordon, Mayor Williams, Puck, Anonymous, the crying Indian from those old ads, Collin Kapernick, The NRA, Putin, and PIZZA HUT’s® NEW BACON STUFFED CRUST PIZZA WITH NEW APPLEWOOD SMOKED BACON
State Representative Baumbach lays the smackdown on the empty promises of Sean Barney:
There are six Democratic candidates working to be our next Representative in Congress. (In full disclosure, I have endorsed one of them, [state] Sen. Bryan Townsend, with whom I have served in the General Assembly since 2012.) A mailer from Sean Barney, one of the three leading candidates, proposes a plan to boost annual Social Security benefits by $11,669 a year. Does that seem too good to be true? Of course it is!
This promise is irresponsible. As Mary Poppins said, it is a “pie crust promise, easily made, easily broken.” A second of his mailers notes that the other two leading candidates don’t support this plan. Of course they don’t — it is absurd!
Almost 40 million Americans receive Social Security retirement benefits. The increase being promised would cost $460 billion annually.
A newly elected freshman congressman from Delaware, amongst 434 colleagues (over 55 percent of them Republicans), plans to add $460 billion annually to the program? I find it hard to envision an emptier campaign promise. Taking advantage of senior citizens, offering them a 100-percent false hope, just to get more votes, is the sign of a very desperate candidate, and one that should not be elected.
The Cape Gazette asked the candidates a series of questions including this one on the death penalty.
6. GOP lawmakers plan to introduce legislation keeping the death penalty in Delaware. Will you support it?
Sorry about the headline fellow DLers. I’m just being fact based. That sick feeling in the pit of your stomach is your unconscious mind telling you that you know it too. Hillary will be a good President, but she sucks at running for President. Luckily she is running against Trump. And luckily Trump overshadowed her horrible speech on “American Exceptionalism” last night. If she was running against any other Republican (with the possible exception of Ted Cruz), she’d be ten points behind right now.
If there’s one core belief that has guided and inspired me every step of the way, it is this. The United States is an exceptional nation. I believe we are still Lincoln’s last, best hope of Earth. We’re still Reagan’s shining city on a hill. We’re still Robert Kennedy’s great, unselfish, compassionate country.
Who can say all of that and make it sound like she is hitting Lincoln, Reagan, and Robert Kennedy in the head with a hammer? Only HRC, that’s who.
Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley said the Senate could lift the blockade on confirming Garland for SCOTUS during the time after the Nov. 8 election if Clinton wins, and before the new Congress takes office in January.
To that I say, fuck you Chuck. And I would hope Merrick Garland would have the grace to say “Thanks, but no thanks” and allow President Clinton to appoint the next justice. I feel almost certain that he would. Not only that, he should announce today that he’d no longer be a nominee after November 8th.
Eric Trump: Dad is running because he watches waaaaaay too much Fox News and is haunted by the “PC” boogeymen
Let’s look at the reasons Trump is running according to his idiot son:
“He opens up the paper each morning and sees our nation’s leaders giving a hundred billion dollars to Iran,”
Iranian frozen assets were unfrozen through negotiations, so this is bullshit.
… or he opens the paper and some new school district has just eliminated the ability for its students to say the pledge of allegiance,
Pure BS. Show me this non-existent school district.
…or some fire department in some town is ordered by the mayor to no longer fly the American flag on the back of a fire truck,”
Again, what a load of crap. Please point me to whatever “paper” carried this story.
“Or, he sees the tree on the White House lawn has been renamed ‘Holiday tree’ instead of ‘Christmas tree.’
Nope. Maybe in Bill O’Reilly’s fever dreams, but not in reality.
I could go on and on for hours. Those are the very things that made my father run, and those are the very things he cares about.”
So… he cares about utter nonsense. Got it.
