Marco is getting a little bossy. Also – I’ve been meaning to get a picture of the Trump signs on 13 near Willy Farms, but keep forgetting. If you see any Delaware or national Ads that are great, good, bad, or terrible – send them in.
(by Matt Bittle) DOVER — The Delaware Department of Elections is investigating whether lieutenant governor candidate Kathy McGuiness meets the state’s residency requirement. The Delaware Constitution requires the lieutenant governor to be a resident of the state for 12 years, the last six of which must be consecutively before the election. At issue is the […]
My hobby horse is in splinters from having been ridden to death. I’ve railed against John Carney giving aid and comfort to the radicalized doomsday cult know as the GOP long after I was able to do so, and be funny at the same time. So…was the President talking to me last night? Let’s see…
You did it DL community. Coons and Carper are now on the record. The only recalcitrant member of the delegation is the Governor Elect, who may have reasoned out that being on the record in favor of something like this may disturb the last two remaining Dixiecrats in western Sussex.
A: “Some people have been in touch, and they want to give me all these millions to run for President, even though nobody, AND I MEAN NOBODY, can stomach the idea of another Bush being President after my Bro f#cked it up so bad. Well, I guess I can take the millions if they are so fixed on giving ‘em to me.”
Q: What was Jeb! thinking?
That’s the most plausible explanation for the Bush campaign that I can come up with. His campaign has weeks, not months left to soak some rich idiots.
Rand Paul is also in trouble, so he is going ROGUE !!
I, for one, am glad to have Ted Cruz ruled ineligible to be President. He is creepy and probably a secret Cuban Communist. While I’d prefer he was ruled out based on his whack-ass politics, I’ll accept his being ruled out via crazy internet lynch mob.
“So when they knock on doors, they ask them: are you Canadian citizens, are you 18 years of age or older, and are you a resident in this facility and how long have you been living here?”
The Pop Culture barn is filling up with poo. Time to muck the stables. Most recent first. When did the Golden Globe awards turn into the Grammy awards with a bunch of awards going to shows/people I’ve never heard of? That is a rhetorical question. The answer is when AmazonPrime and other streaming services started […]
Next week, I’m bringing the town hall to you! I’ll be doing a Facebook Q&A right here, where you can ask me questions and get answers — live! To join in, just visit my Facebook page Wednesday 1/13 at 12:30 pm. Talk to you soon! I can’t wait to hear about how we have to […]
F#ck Yeah, we are racists. So what? – Donald Trump
It’s the blacks coming up from Ct. and New York selling the drugs and f#cking our white girls. You’d be crazy to not be racist. – Paul LePage
You are goddamn right we poisoned the shit out of those poor-ass loser in Flint. What are you going to do about it? – Rick Snyder
We are going to get rid of food stamps because, f#ck it. – Jeb Bush
Of course our only goal is to simply to f#ck shit up. Haven’t you been paying attention? – Paul Ryan
It is impossible to be shocked or surprised by Republicans these days. They have been as unguarded about their goals as they have been about their prejudices. [The statements above have been only lightly paraphrased.] As the ante continues to be upped, I’m sure, by the GOP convection, one of the GOP candidates will call Cornel West a nigger, and I wouldn’t rule out that person being Ben Carson.
I suppose the only surprising thing left is how Democrats never seem to make Republicans pay a price for being so unguarded. Although, then again, with Democrats like John Carney, who think that Republicans are still good faith partners in governing – I guess that isn’t so surprising either.
If you ask even sober, reasonable Republicans like Ken Simpler what they want, the #1 item is tax cuts. Sure tax cuts have never worked, but evidence is for eggheads and sissies. Real men have the courage to stick with things that have failed time and again. That’s why, in spite of never working, #2 on the Republican wish list is always “Right to Work for Less” laws. There is some magic in Right to Work for Less that will someday fix failing economies, even though (like tax cuts) it never has. The important thing is to keep trying. Just ask economic genius, Scott Walker.
The irony is so delicious, isn’t it? There is, of course, the surface level irony of the party that brayed nonsensically about Obama’s legitimacy for 8 years turning the fire hose on itself. That alone is awesome. But there is also another layer of irony that I’m enjoying.
There is the irony that Cruz himself is a huge proponent and avid practitioner of anti-factualism. For Cruz, facts simply don’t matter. Facts, to candidates for the GOP nomination, are more worthless than a bicycle to a fish.
Knowing this, Cruz after initially tried to laugh off Trump’s birther questions with a Happy Days clip. But as the story builds and more GOPers hop on the birther bandwagon, Cruz is now looking to FACTS to bail him out of this. Hilarious. Listen to Cruz on the topic of his Canadian eligibility to be President.
Turns out we all got a gift this Christmas. Bloggers that care way more about this shit than I do found out that the Grifter from Wasila is flat broke and trying some outlandish shit in a last ditch attempt to keep her long con going. The beginning of the end started in mid-February of […]
The Cruz mobile app, which game-ifies the campaign process — users win points for sharing their contact lists or for posting messages of support to Facebook and Twitter — has close to 30,000 downloads, according to Chris Wilson, head of analytics for the campaign.
I get a lot of good-natured guff around here about being a nervous Nellie. But when you’ve seen the Democratic Party, and Democratic candidates fuck up sure things as many times as I have, I think you’ve earned your jitters. When Democrats strive for “50% plus 1″ and Republicans go all out in every state […]
Here is the day in 2016 that I’m looking forward to. It is the day when whatever passes for the Delaware Republican establishment falls in love with their presidential nominee. Ken Simpler, Charlie Copeland and Dave Burris presently consider unthinkable that they will backing Donald Trump, but a 180 degree changing of their tunes is inevitable. Josh Marshall at TPM puts it succinctly:
People of all stripes have a great ability to decide that what they cannot prevent is in fact awesome. I would go as far as to say that the big thing to watch right now, the big event, isn’t so much Trump and Cruz’s poll numbers and whether they’ll hold up as the increasing signs that the Republican party is beginning the process of embracing that outcome.
It will take some mighty rationalizations, but just wait for it. The Trump (or Cruz) train is coming, and Copeland, Burris and Simple [the smart, reasonable and sober Republicans] are not only going to board it, but they are going to be its Delaware conductors.
Eschewing the advice of poet Dylan Thomas, Lindsey Graham ended his campaign with a whimper, not a bang.
Republican presidential candidate Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) told CNN’s Kate Balduan on Monday that he was dropping out of the 2016 race.
The South Carolina senator said he was satisfied with how his unsuccessful campaign played out.
“The one thing I feel really good about is I did it with a smile on my face,” he told Balduan. “I talked about things that are important to me, and somebody better fix one day.”
Graham said that he planned to remain active in shaping Republican Party politics.
“I will suspend my campaign. I’m not going to suspend my desire to help the country,” he said.
Here are the revised standings:
It has been a hell of a year. Wingnut reactions to things have ranged from predicable to entirely predicable. But “worst to best” doesn’t really fit. This list, is more ranked from “worst” to “even worse still”.
10) “The liberal media..(anything)”
All of wingnut bluster about how liberal the media is goes back to a 1986 study that found that a majority of journalists at national media outlets such as The New York Times, and WaPo were Democratic voters. As if reporters had some kind of say in the political leanings of “the media.” It is laughable and you’d really have to have your head up your ass to observe that we have a “liberal media” while you watch your “One America News” (on a TV implanted in your descending colon) because Fox has gone soft.
UPDATE: Congressional Candidate, Bryon Sort has called for Congress to lift the ban on gun violence research, and “to start supporting a data-driven and scientific approach to a solution.”
No word yet from Coons or Carney.
As much as I hate the Democratic Party for its pusillanimousness, at least it isn’t the Republican Party.
A group of GOP leaders held a hush-hush meeting at a Washington, DC, restaurant to discuss the possibility of having a brokered convention next year so that they could find an alternative to Donald Trump, according to a report.
Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus held the meeting with establishment GOP honchos, such as Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, the Washington Post reported.
They listened to other GOP bigwigs talk about how, if the billionaire New York developer scored a large number of delegates in the primaries, they could mount a floor fight and get the party to back some other candidate, the report said.
Democrats, ironically, are seeking to carve out new subsidies for oil refineries in an omnibus spending bill being negotiated in Congress, amid horse-trading with the GOP for an extension of valuable tax subsidies for the wind industry.
The move, led by Sen. Tom Carper, D-Del…
Q: There is a voter in western Sussex that he might offend.
A: Why is John Carney so worried about calling out Trump for his beyond the pale fascism?
House Speaker Paul Ryan broke from his habit of avoiding comment on the 2016 presidential race to strongly condemn Donald Trump’s call for a ban on Muslim immigration to the US during Tuesday’s House GOP press conference.
“What was proposed yesterday is not what this party stands for and more importantly it’s not what this country stands for,” Ryan said.
