Bernie Sanders Rip Carper and Coons Some New Assholes

You Clinton supporters own this shit.

The Vindication of Christine O’Donnell

In addition to denying coverage for pre-existing conditions and yanking health insurance out from under a minimum of 30,000 Delawareans, the GOP’s “repeal of the ACA will accomplish a lot of what Christine O’Donnell was campaigning for back in 2010, even while retaining O’Donnell’s incoherence.

This is from a debate that aired at 7:30 pm on October 13th, 2010:

‘Bulo on WHYY TV-12 Tonight

I really hit my TV stride with this one.  ‘First’ at 5:30 pm.  Mark Eichman and I talk about the General Assembly and, specifically, the budget deficit. I’m pretty sure I managed to diss the current and future governor and most of the members of the General Assembly.  In other words, I was on target.  […]
