Filed in National by on June 13, 2018 4 Comments

Republican primaries around the country demonstrated that the GOP is now a fully-owned subsidiary of TrumpCo, as pro-Trump troglodytes swept aside old-school Republicans across the nation. Maybe the party should change its mascot from an elephant to Trump. The change wouldn’t be drastic — they both have very little hair and weigh a ton. Trump’s […]

Conclusive Proof: Rand Paul Is a Dick

Filed in National by on June 13, 2018 15 Comments

Rand Paul is a dick. If there was ever any doubt, it was dispelled by sentencing documents stemming from his neighbor’s rib-breaking attack on the ideological little weenie, which leave little doubt that Paul is a passive-aggressive prick of the worst kind: In September, Paul piled limbs and trimmings from shrubs in a 5-foot-high and […]

I linked yesterday to a column by Yanis Varoufakis, the leftist organizer who briefly served as finance minister in Greece before resigning in protest. Here’s a longer interview that spells out how the 2008 financial system collapse laid the groundwork for the West’s current political crisis. “It became more profitable, and a greater source of […]

Rep. Mike Mulrooney (D-17th RD) has announced that he will not seek reelection, according to WDEL. While Mulrooney has been especially strong on labor issues, he has also been one of the NRA’s staunchest supporters in the Delaware General Assembly. He was facing a primary challenge from Melissa Minor-Brown. In fact, both had filed for […]

One who is building some momentum.  I’ve been slow to recognize this development, but both Kevin Ohlandt and Blue Delaware have been on top of it. Mea culpa. You just have to read the linked Ohlandt piece, which is great journalism. Turns out the reason that […]
