Dover Mayor’s Wife Leading Online Smear Campaign of Sean Lynn – Part 2

When wingnut firehose of vitriol opens up it can be a shocking experience. The level of hate and bile that Trumpers can muster up at the drop of a hat is unsettling. But is it honestly felt emotion based on the kind of legitimate differences of opinion  that are baked into democracy – or is it concocted?  The working out of a grievance that they will not address directly?  

The hate-fest directed at Lynn appears to have been concocted by the NRA and Cindy Christensen, the wife of the Mayor of Dover.  As far as the NRA’s role goes, this quarterly financial report is the smoking gun.

Tom Carper has only himself to blame

Money for bombs is free and easy to find.  Money for medicare-for-all will break the bank. The jig is up Tom. Washington (CNN)Democratic congressional candidate Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez questioned why Republicans are happy to pay for tax cuts and “unlimited war” but the GOP, and some Democrats, don’t see “Medicare-for-all” or other progressive ideas as financially […]

Aug. 10 Open Thread: It’s Racists All the Way Down

Filed in National, Open Thread by on August 10, 2018 18 Comments

When Jason330 wrote the other day that Ken Simpler must be a racist simply because he’s a Republican, I probably wasn’t the only reader who winced. But Jason isn’t the only one who has put two and two together. Laura Ingraham brought it out into plain view earlier this week when she went on a […]

Dover Mayor’s Wife Leading Online Smear Campaign of Sean Lynn – Part 1

Dover Mayor Robin Christiansen’s wife appears to be heading up a Republican smear campaign of Sean Lynn. Cindy Christensen, and a cabal Trumpsits are waging an online war against Lynn, possibly motivated by revenge against Lynn for his role in exposing Christiansen’s malfeasance and corruption during the Chief of Police hiring scandal last February.

The campaign is ongoing and includes a fundraising effort by Cindy Christensen which has resulted in a wave of Republican donations to Lynn’s primary opponent.

More as this story unfolds.

Tom Carper In His Own Words: Why He Should No Longer Be Senator

Filed in Delaware, Featured by on August 10, 2018 6 Comments

When Tom Carper ran against Bill Roth in 2000, he made age the issue while claiming that age was not the issue. Of course, age wasn’t the issue, said Carper. Energy was.  Don’t believe me? Read this piece on that race from 2000. Won’t take you long to find the money quote. Here’s how Tom […]

Aug. 9 Open Thread: Even ‘Fox & Friends’ Viewers Support Medicare for All

Filed in National by on August 9, 2018 6 Comments

If there’s one thing centrists love to tell us, it’s that America isn’t ready for “radical” progressive ideas like Medicare for All. Somebody forgot to send that memo to Fox News viewers. “Fox & Friends” ran a scare segment about how expensive that would be, using that Koch brothers study that found it would cost […]

Joe Scarborough is the worst

Joe Scarborough is the worst

I’ve been watching MSNBC in the morning, and while he hates Trump I’ve concluded – Joe Scarborough is the worst.

Dems in danger of “overplaying thier hand”. Such absolute bullshit

The DJIA is the economy, and the economy is doing GREAT! Absolute nonsense.

Ronald Reagan was a God among men. Simple minded idiocy.

Trump isn’t a Republican. Yes he is, you dick.

I’m cool because I like Phish. Puke. I’m agnostic on Phish. People like what they like, but middle aged white guys who will not shut up about how cool they are, and who stake thier coolness on what jam bands they like are a-holes.

Rep. Christopher Collins, a Republican congressman from New York, was arrested Wednesday by the FBI merely for participating in a criminal insider-trading scheme to sell the shares of an Australian biotechnology company before the public disclosure of a failed drug trial. Meanwhile Hillary Clinton has still not been arrested for anything in spite of a […]

Aug. 8 Open Thread: Crony Government

Filed in National, Open Thread by on August 8, 2018 9 Comments

Kudos to Pro Publica, where investigative journalists used FOIA laws to find emails showing that the Veterans Administration is in effect being run by three rich guys who belong to Mar-a-Lago. They have no qualifications for this role, but then, neither does Trump. This is the sort of thing political satirists used to make up […]
