With all of the shit that’s going on on the opposite side of the political aisle right now, it’s hard to believe there is so much infighting on the Democratic side. These are the people we have to get out of government, folks. It is with this in mind that SueinRockville and Milt Shook bring you:
The Friday GOP Follies*
*where RNC Chairman Reince Preibus wants to reassure everyone, he is NOT, I repeat NOT pouring Bailey’s Irish cream liquor over his breakfast cereal!
The Road to the Nomination:
It wouldn’t be a complete week without a major flub by someone from the Klown Kar, mostly Donald Drumpf. So, it should surprise no one when Drumpf appeared before a crowd in Buffalo just before the New York Primary and suggested that the police and firefighters were heroic when they gathered at the 7-11.
It’s unclear, but perhaps he was jonesing for a Slurpee. What’s telling, though, when you look at the video is that the lickspittle followers who are sitting behind him apparently didn’t even hear him say it.
Of course, it shouldn’t surprise anyone. No one is apparently listening to anything he says, because they never challenge him on any of it. Case in point; this week, those fine “journalists” at the Today Show let him get away with an obvious lie when he told them he was against invading Iraq at the beginning. He wasn’t. Media Matters explains it all here.
As we all know, Drumpf was a YUGE winner in the NY Primary. Well, he won most of NewYork. He actually lost in the area of New York where they know him best; Manhattan. The Republicans there chose John Kasich, who garnered a total of 4 delegates.
Ted Cruz paid dearly for his “NY Values” comments at the debates, as he came in a distant third in that state and received a total of zero delegates. It seems to be true: Everybody Hates Ted Cruz!
Speaking of Cruz, the Internets are all abuzz and laughing their asses off that the possibility that Cruz might have a sister or a love child. Or perhaps he has a hobby that Heidi doesn’t know about. Seriously, look at this guest on Maury. We want to warn you, it’s a little creepy.
Of course, not all Republican insanity is about the presidential race and not all of it is fun and games. A lot of it is serious. Here are some examples of Republican state officials attempting to bankrupt their states:
Because Governor Matt Bevin of Kentucky apparently thinks that being the Governor is much the same as being the King, and he is being sued because he cut education funding do drastically. (Source)
The idiot Republicans in Texas are once again threatening to secede. They actually plan to discuss it seriously at their next state convention. (Source) If there is some way that only Republicans and other right wing clowns could secede, I’d be all for it. I’m sure Drumpf would like that idea; there’s be less wall for him to build.
and if they . In fact, they plan TexASS Morons in another bid to show “Don’t Mess With Texas” but do give us tons of Federal Money once again will force a vote:
Stay tuned for next week’s edition of GOP Follies but in tribute to NC & all other Red States, we end with StephenColbert’s message to NC
There are currently two competing healthcare bills in Congress. They represent both extremes of the healthcare financing debate, which is what this is all about, after all. Both are ill-conceived, but for very different reasons. The first one is Bernie Sanders’ Medicare-for-All single-payer bill. That is ill-conceived because the timing …
This could easily be the shortest article I have ever written. Yesterday, former LOSING Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders said on Meet the Press; “I worked as hard as I could after endorsing Hillary Clinton.” (Source) He is right about that. After he finally endorsed her, Bernie did work hard …
Last night, Lord Donny posted the following Tweet: Churches in Texas should be entitled to reimbursement from FEMA Relief Funds for helping victims of Hurricane Harvey (just like others). — Donald J.
