Inside The Twisted Mind Of John Cole


Yesterday at Buffoon Juice:

No Memory Equals No Perspective

My twitter feed is still insane, which should surprise no one, but what is surprising is that this level of stupidity is happening in one of the most peaceful Democratic primaries I can remember. Now we’ve got Clinton campaign staffers claiming unless Bernie changes his “tone,” they won’t debate any more. That makes sense and is a surefire strategy for the general. Meanwhile, the Sanders campaign is public enemy number one for some pretty harmless spin about how Bernie can still win. That’s about it. Now granted, some people Hillary supporters have convinced themselves this is the ugliest campaign ever and that Bernie supporters are all diehard racist misogynistic BernieBro white privileged dudes, but that’s just nucking futs.

So, let’s compare what was going on in this day in 2008 to the tepid nonsense being ginned up today. How many of you remember the Clinton campaign attempt to blow up the DNC by demanding the Michigan and Florida delegates, which she won because she ran unopposed because they broke the DNC rules and both she and Obama agreed they should not count until she won because she ran unopposed. Y’all forget about that?

Sen. Clinton gave a pretty astonishing interview to the Washington Post in which she appears to say she will stay in the race till the convention in August, where she will take her fight to the credentials committee to have the delegates from the non-sanctioned Michigan and Florida primaries seated.

The convention of course starts on August 25th, roughly five months from now.

The key quote from the interview is this one: “I know there are some people who want to shut this down and I think they are wrong. I have no intention of stopping until we finish what we started and until we see what happens in the next 10 contests and until we resolve Florida and Michigan. And if we don’t resolve it, we’ll resolve it at the convention — that’s what credentials committees are for.”

So she’s promising to remain in the race at least until June 3rd when the final contests are held in Montana and South Dakota and until Florida and Michigan are ‘resolved’. Now, that can have no other meaning than resolved on terms the Clinton campaign finds acceptable. It can’t mean anything else since, of course, at least officially, for the Democratic National Committee, it is resolved. The penalty was the resolution.

The Obama campaign has always been willing to ‘resolve’ the matter by splitting those states’ delegates down the middle. But of course that’s something the Clinton campaign can never accept since splitting them down the middle is the same as not counting them at all. It leaves both campaigns right where the started, i.e., with him ahead and her behind.

That leaves two real possibilities: seat the non-sanctioned January primary delegates or hold the primaries again, a revote.

So what Team Clinton was doing in 2008 makes whatever dribble Tad Devine has sliding out of his mouth at the moment look pretty innocuous.

I wrote this almost seven years ago:

As Booman immolates himself in conflagration of Kool-aid fueled stoopidity, one of the asinine assertions he has made is that Obama won the popular vote in last year’s primaries. As evidence for this claim he cites this page at RealClearPolitics showing at the very top that Obama received 17,535,458 votes (48.1%) and Hillary received 17,493,836 votes (48.0%)

The problem for Booman is that those numbers don’t include Michigan. If you count ALL the votes (as shown on the 3rd and 4th lines) then Obama received 17,535,458 votes (47.4%) and Hillary received 17,822,145 votes (48.1%) Even if you include estimates of the caucus votes Hillary still got 176,465 more votes than Obama (.5%)

I can hear Obamanation sputtering now:

“But she agreed the votes wouldn’t count! She signed a pledge! Da roolz!

First of all, Hillary never agreed that Michigan and Florida would be completely disenfranchised. The totality of her statements on this issue make it obvious that she expected a solution to be worked out. Secondly, the pledge she signed was an agreement that she would not campaign in MI/FL and she didn’t (but Obama did.) Lastly, fuck the rules.

Michigan and Florida held official primaries sanctioned by their state governments and paid for with tax payer money. Those state governments are the duly elected representatives of the people. The Rules and Bylaws Committee is an unelected body within the Democratic National Committee, which is itself unelected by the people.

To assert that democratic principles are less important than scheduling rules demonstrates the moral and intellectual bankruptcy of Obama supporters. Rules should reflect our values and principles, not trump them. Nor should our values and principles be cast aside in pursuit of some short term goal, especially if that goal is based on a cult of personality. And as for our lurking Obama supporters, please don’t whinge about “fairness” because Obama was not on the Michigan ballot. HE VOLUNTARILY TOOK HIMSELF OFF THE BALLOT.

It doesn’t matter what Hillary may or may not have agreed to. She doesn’t own our votes. Neither does the RBC nor the DNC. Obamanation will never understand us until they get it through their heads that we aren’t mad because Hillary lost the election, we are furious because Obama stole the nomination. It’s not about her, it’s about us. Those were our votes that were stolen.

In 2008 Hillary finished in a virtual tie with Obama in both the popular vote and in pledged delegates. If the votes and delegates from Florida and Michigan were included in the totals at full strength, Hillary would have finished with a slight lead in both votes and pledged delegates. Neither candidate could win without winning the majority of the super delegates.

But the narrative was that Obama was unbeatable. If Hillary finished in first and the super delegates had chosen Obama anyway, that would have looked like the Democrat establishment fixed the election.

That’s because they did fix the election. The Rules and Bylaws Committee ruled that both Florida and Michigan primaries would count, but they reduced Florida’s delegates by 50% and gave Obama all the uncommitted delegates in Michigan (where he wasn’t on the ballot) along with some of Hillary’s delegates.

Now the GOPe is trying to do something similar to Donald Trump.

I picked a bad year to quit drinking.

    This could be good news for DJT, but again it might not be. Who knows?

    • piper says:

      The unions in Wisconsin are very unhappy after Scott Walker enacted legislation against some of the unions.

      • elliesmom says:

        But the ex-union members are delighted, and even some of the ones who now pay their union dues voluntarily are happier than they were before.

    • Jadzia says:

      Reminds me of Reagan, TBH. (I’m not saying Trump himself reminds me of Reagan, but some of the coalition that is forming around him sure does.)

  2. piper says:

    Interesting – a Trump top strategist turned defector. Surprise a bit that LJ actually posted this thread on his website.

    “He doesn’t want the White House. He just wants to be able to say that he could have run the White House. He’s achieved that already and then some. If there is any question, take it from someone who was recruited to help the candidate succeed, and initially very much wanted him to do so.

    The hard truth is: Trump only cares about Trump.

    And if you are one of the disaffected voters — one of the silent majority like me — who wanted a candidate who could be your voice, I want to speak directly to you as one of his biggest advocates and supporters.

    He is not that voice. He is not your voice. He is only Trump’s voice.

    Trump is about Trump. Not one of his many wives. Not one of his many “pieces of ass.” He is, at heart, a self-preservationist.

    In fact, many people are not aware of the Trump campaign’s internal slogan, but I will tell you. It is stolen from a make-believe television presidency on The West Wing where Martin Sheen portrayed President Bartlet. The slogan on the show amongst the idealistic group of Bartlet’s staff was “Let Bartlet Be Bartlet.”

    Inside the Trump camp, the slogan became “Let Trump Be Trump.”

    It is a repurposed slogan that seemed spot-on for the candidate. He is an intelligent, charismatic man who is involved in every aspect of his organization and would rather speak from the cuff than read briefing notes and recite them. I, in fact, admire Trump for this. But saying this qualifies him to be president is like saying that Seth Rogen is suited to be president. Another extraordinary improvisor, not an extraordinary presidential candidate.

    Trump has undoubtedly lived up to the slogan, right down to his main public-relations liaison. Rather than go for a focus-group Washington insider, his communications person had previously taken press calls for the Trump Organization and directed them to the appropriate Trump child. She joked that before joining the campaign she thought “Common Core” was a class at Equinox.”


    • DandyTIger says:

      She was from an openly disavowed superPAC. Not affiliated with Trump. Love these cheesy hit jobs though.

      • Jadzia says:

        Although Ivanka Trump is certainly far more impressive than any other politician’s child in recent memory (her bros, not so much), I cannot. stand. the. nepotism. I lasted about 5 minutes on The Apprentice after watching her do her haughty routine with contestants old enough to be her parents(*), had a “Who the hell do you think YOU are?” moment, and peaced on out.

        (*)Well, that and come on, it was The Apprentice.

        • DeniseVB says:

          One redeeming quality from The Apprentice was it raised hundreds of thousands for charity as a result of their “sales” challenges. I got bored with it when they went D-List celebrity. I love that Obama keeps referring to Trump as a reality star, when he owned the show, thus creating more jobs than Obama has just with that one project.

      • DeniseVB says:

        Yeah, Snopes even debunked it.

    • Anthony says:

      “Rather than go for a focus-group Washington insider, his communications person had previously taken press calls for the Trump Organization and directed them to the appropriate Trump child.”

      Because “focus-group Washington insiders” are such superior strategists… (said no one, ever). If they were so great, why are their candidates dropping like flies? Still, I admire your tenacity, but…

  3. piper says:

    Here’s Charlie Sykes interviewing Donald Trump

  4. piper says:

    Go ahead and throw rocks but I’m still voting for the best candidate, Scott Walker, next Tuesday.

    • dm says:

      I respect following one’s convictions; sometimes that can be pretty much all we have. But it is a wasted vote, which I suppose in retrospect many of us have knowingly done. He’s not on the ballot – or maybe he is, you are in the land of the cheeseheads…sorry bout that, I have a personal bias against that state and a few of its inhabitants. I liked Walker too, and was really disheartened when he withdrew. I’ve given that a lot of thought, and something about that situation just didn’t make sense to me, especially pulling out so quick. Now, with his endorsement of Cruz, it really does appear to me that he is just following orders like all the others…sad, very sad. I held both in high esteem…not so much today.

  5. piper says:

    Last one for today.
    Scott Walker to Make Presidential Endorsement This Morning

    With Wisconsin’s primary exactly one week away, Gov. Scott Walker will announce his official endorsement of a GOP candidate this morning in an interview with Milwaukee radio host Charlie Sykes. Walker said recently that the timing of his endorsement was planned so that it would have “maximum impact.”

    The Wisconsin governor signaled last week that his choice would likely be Sen. Ted Cruz. After all, he’s been highly skeptical of Donald Trump and said last week that Gov. John Kasich “cannot” win the nomination.

    • DandyTIger says:

      Poor Ted. Not sure he knows he’s being used. Walker and other GOPe despise Cruz and will destroy him first chance they get. Ah good old sleazy politics.

    • Anthony says:

      So by promoting Ted despite what seem to be very substantial allegations about his “godly” lifestyle and sleazy tactics, does that then mean that Walker is also condoning prostitution?

      • lyn says:

        The GOPe will do anything to take Trump down.

      • DeniseVB says:

        I thought the same thing downstairs. Walker should have kept his powder dry until the crazy stuff blew over. There’s no requirement for a governor to endorse during a primary, something got to him. Heard the soundbite of his endorsement, didn’t seem very enthusiastic, just political mumbo-jumbo.

        • Anthony says:

          Pretty much admitted it was a pro GOPe endorsement. Sorry he flamed – I was an early supporter of his and was disappointed when he dropped out. But I took my hands off the wheel 15 minutes after Hillary caved to the R&B Committee, and since then I just never look back. They don’t exactly give a fuck about me, so I see no reason to remain loyal. or crazy.

  6. Anthony says:

    “Now the GOPe is trying to do something similar to Donald Trump.”

    ^THIS^ is the real battle; not the little gladiators battling it out in the arena.

    At least the Dems disguised their ’08 brokered convention as a Rules and Bylaws Committee meeting. Now look where they’re at – both Dem candidates having a contest to see who can turn The United States into Greece the fastest.

    Bernie wins the speed race hands down, but the more moderate Hillary soothes the fragile souls of the delicate Obama flowers with her more measured, moderate approach. The only choice I see for Dem voters is “How fast you want to die?” – you can use the immediately lethal Cyanide that Sanders is pandering, or take a more measured approach with Hillary’s equally deadly but extremely slow acting Atophan. Either way, the Dems will make sure that we stop circling the toilet and just go down the hatch.

    • Anthony says:

      LOL! Because we all know how unbiased Soopermexican is… /s

    • Ann says:

      Clear as day!? O.o I looked to me like he turned sideways to get around her. She didn’t jerk, she didn’t get pulled to the ground, nothing. If that is assault, people will want to stay out of: bars, parks, train stations, airports, sporting facilities, school hallways… basically anywhere that makes for tight passageways.

      We are a ridiculously litigious society where everything and anything is against the law. This one smacks of pandering to the media while taking a swipe at Trump.

    • Venus says:

      I’m glad to see you reveal yourself for who you are, piper — cheering on police being used for political purposes — ie an arrest when there is NO HOPE of conviction. The video proves it — but that is OK with you, as long as it serves your purposes. Definition of a hypocrite: see, piper.

      If this is now considered battery, then everyone who goes out shopping on Black Friday is in danger of being arrested:

      • lyn says:

        The bully should have tripped her.

      • DeniseVB says:

        Didn’t Fields also break the “arm’s length” rule for reporters ? She pretty much got in Trump’s face, Corey was being reactive to maintaining Trump’s “safe space”.

      • Anthony says:

      • lyn says:

        If that’s battery, then I need to charge the corners of my home when I unintentionally hit my hands on them.

        • Jadzia says:

          That special snowflake should come and spend some time in a maternelle playground here in France. My four-year-old DAUGHTER came home today looking like she’d gone a couple of rounds with Max Schmeling. I was like OH MY GOD WHAT HAPPENED? And her response was Maxcence (I can’t with these names) pushed me, I cried, and I went to the principal’s office and got arnica I NOT SAD ANYMORE! Oooookay, little trooper.

          • lyn says:

            😀 What a sweetheart! Arnica! Geez, I discovered that a few years ago.

          • Jadzia says:

            It’s a big day when she DOESN’T come home banged up. She seems to mostly play with the boys right now and I think they get a little bit rowdy. She also is now insisting on a haircut (noooooo!!!!!) because she wants to “look like a boy,” which I think she is saying just to irk me. I just said okay, Shiloh, but let’s just start with a few inches.

          • DeniseVB says:

            At that age I wanted to be a “boy” too, even changed my name to Rusty after the kid on Rin-Tin-Tin because I wanted to be HIM😉 How cool was he?

          • Jadzia says:

            HA HA HA. I’m not sure how her crew cut is gonna look with the dresses she insists on wearing every day. I’m thinking a preschooler Annie Lennox. She’s got the big blue eyes.

      • votermom says:

        Piper wasn’t cheering it on, she just posted a link.
        It’s the DA who is an idiot here.

          If you want to give her the benefit of the doubt vm, that’s fine
          I know *exactly* what piper is doing — link to supermexican, not the actual video? She’s happy that the police are being used for political purposes.
          She’ll claim she isn’t — but I see through her.

        • leslie says:

          Sorry Venus, It doesn’t seem to me that piper is cheering on anyone other than Walker. She opposes Trump and is posting what she feels backs up her opposition. What she posted isn’t offensive to me.

          • Anthony says:

            I agree, but in Venus’ defense, it seems like she was responding to a few drive-by antagonistic posts. Just my opinion, and I’m sure there will be some skewering because of it.

          • Venus says:

            It’s not offensive.
            I’m just telling her I see through her passive-aggressive agenda.
            Her guy couldn’t even hack the first month of a national campaign and she’s butthurt and lashing out at the guy she blames for it — instead of accepting the fact that Mr. Scott-Amenesty-for-Illegals Flip-Flop Walker doomed himself to 1% status.

      • piper says:

        Sadly Angie,
        Anyone not on the Trump Train is offensive to you. Posting any type of comment or link about your hero is offensive. I like to see and read all the links, forming my own opinion not jumping on the borg train. Keep up the insults which you must have learned from your candidate, Trump. Actually all the name calling is what finally turned me off from the Donald which is a repeat of the obots behavior from 2008.

        • piper says:

          Angie I guess I should call you by your new blog name, Venus.

        • Anthony says:

          “Keep up the insults which you must have learned from your candidate, Trump. Actually all the name calling is what finally turned me off from the Donald which is a repeat of the obots behavior from 2008.

          Ah yes, the good ol’ days of ’08. I remember it well. The Obots used to call this “Concern™”…

        • Venus says:

          Right there you’re proving yourself some more, piper.
          I’m not on the Trump Train. I’m just anti-establishment, which includes the liar Cruz. You’re the one with the hero worship of the GOPe.
          And if you knew ANYTHING about me, bitch, you’d know my insults and tolerance of fools pre-dates Trump all the way back to RDs place.So don’t you EVER fucking come at me again trying to pretend you “know” me.

          • piper says:

            Yes, name calling is so in.

          • Venus says:

            Bitch, you were too chicken to respond to me up thread to make sure I could see it, and instead posted down here where I might miss it. But I’m on to you baby girl. You can fool the others; you don’t fool me. Your #NeverTrump irrational hate is JUST AS BAD as being on the Trump Train. Actually, it’s worse, because you are nothing more than a useful idiot for the establishment whereas the Trump true believers are at least tired of the shit sandwiches the establishment has been feeding us. When you’re in a snake pit, you don’t care who hands you the stick.
            And then you cry and play victim when your irrational hatred and hypocrisy is pointed out. I don’t give a fuck about that. But I do give a fuck and will not allow you pretending to “know” me as you did up thread — to further spew hate at Trump. I’m not you, dummy — I don’t learn insults or take any other life cues from a political candidate. So now, I’m going to be on your ass every time you post your “concerns.”

      • leslie says:

        Actually this still makes it very clear. Fields was where she should not have been. From what I’ve read, she is good at putting herself in a position of being “wronged”. Very passive-aggressive if you ask me. She is “forcing” someone to take a position that she can use against them.

        • Jadzia says:

          Criminal law is not really my thing, but doesn’t assault require THREATENING (to a REASONABLE PERSON) behavior and assault require touching that is “highly offensive to a reasonable person” or something similar to that? I mean, it’s not like passing cooties along or something like that.

      • Lulu says:

        SS needs to charge her for breeching their secured area. It is a federal felony. The same as doofus boy who rushed the stage.

    Also, I love how the media is all over this Fields story, and the Cruz harem story, but can’t be bothered to cover the FBI’ s investigation of Hillary.

    • taw46 says:

      Or who donates to the Clinton Foundation and how the money is spent. Or why the Democrats let a socialist run for nominee of their party. Or to tell the history of socialism, what it would mean for America. Or,… Well, never mind.

  9. Dora says:

  10. Venus says:

    Meanwhile Cruz refuses to say he’s never cheated and has Carly jump in to deflect. Hiding behing a woman’s skirt while his wife cancels are campaign appearances. I know what I think about this, hence the reason I’m posting it.

      RIP Patty Duke. 😦

    • mothy67 says:

      She’s a bit before my time. I knew she was bipolar or manic depressive whatever the term is now. I did not know she was the mother of Samwise Gamgee(LOR) and Andy Moffet(The Facts of Life) and married to Gomez.
      Seems like an inspirational woman.

  14. Somebody says:

    Dear Denise……Nifong away

    In Florida we don’t have DA’s we have a states attorney. The States attorney for Palm Beach county is a man by the name of Dave Aronberg. He’s a democrat and a former state senator. He grew up in Miami and is married to a former Miami dolphins cheerleader

    Oh and he’s also a Harvard graduate, in fact he graduated Harvard law one year behind Ted Cruz.

    So he has crossed paths with Little Marco, Ted Cruz and even Obama. Aronberg got his undergraduate from Harvard, he was getting his undergrad there at the same time Obama was going to law school.

    Here is his wiki page

  15. DeniseVB says:

    Back on topic, speaking of disenfranchised Dems (like some of us here who left in 2008 over the Obama nom, at least McCain/Palin was a viable FU option for us), Newt tells us about the potential for Trump’s nom/non-nom will do the same to the GOP. I don’t think so because there is no viable alternatives on the Dem side.

  16. wailuagirl says:

    All I know is I totally agree with the very last sentence in this post.

  17. jennifer lyn says:

    Well, I am offended by Piper too. I think this poster is more than just a bit hypocritical which is something I don’t care for. Most of the ‘hits’ she has posted today are more than a bit suspect, btw. As far as the arrest of Trump’s right hand man I would sue for false arrest RIDICULOUS and it will be thrown out as soon as judge is involved. It is a petty political move and smacks of everything wrong now in this country.

    It is impossible to keep people from lying about you and fame makes many envious and brings out a lot of hidden mental illness. ANYONE can say ANYTHING. However, judging from Trump’s inner circle, the fact that his many ex-wives GLOWINGLY talk about him, his children who have been interviewed including live and are more than well spoken, and my own eyes I can tell you that in the world of idiots and assholes we live in this man is as real as you can get these days.

    Waste your vote voting for someone not running for office seems to be really stupid when you look at the direction this country is going to go if we do not elect Trump. Winning is not about getting your way it is about getting the best way and for those who want to complain and say Trump is awful shut up and look at the alternative and remember that it is not you out there spending your money, being trash talked, to run for the worst job ever. Cruz is a tremendous lying failure and I am embarrassed to have ever supported him, We get Trump, or we get f..ked.

    Finally, I want to remind you all of something T. Roosevelt said, in 1910, while speaking at the Sorbonne, “It is not the critic who counts, nor the man who points out how the strong man stumbles or where the doer of deeds could have done better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who strives valiantly, who errs and comes up short again and again, because there is no effort without error or shortcoming, but who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions, who spends himself for a worthy cause; who, at the best, knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who, at the worst, if he fails, at least he fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who knew neither victory nor defeat.”

    • Venus says:

      He wasn’t arrested. He turned himself in and was charged.
      I hope Michelle Fields is charged with filing a false police report, because these charges will be quietly dropped once the campaign season is over.
      “Arrested” is what the liars are saying for political purposes — sounds worse than charged, and all the really matters is ensuring the establishment stays in control of us peons.

      • jennifer lyn says:

        He would have been arrested, that is why he turned himself in. Whole thing is sad especially considering the potential consequences to private people like you and me. For example, if I am wearing my TRUMP button and someone tries to hit me and my protector blocks that punch are we in trouble because it appears that is the where we are headed. Revolt is coming in fact it might already be here.

        • Venus says:

          wouldda shoulda coulda — arrest isn’t the right term here. It’s only being used to cause more damage

          • jennifer lyn says:

            True. But to be utterly clear here he was told to turn himself in because an arrest warrant was issued……

  18. piper says:

    I’m happy that everyone is offended by me. I didn’t realize that I live in the Soviet Union where only one opinion matters that of the government. Guess thinking is no longer an option on this blog and everyone must adhere to the Trump Train mentality. No deviation or differing opinion wanted or needed. Well here’s another link which I’m sure you all have conniptions about. Come on Trump bots – let the name calling continue just like in middle school.

      I think you might have had a better reception if you skipped the passive aggression, but Hey! – glad you’re happy that you’ve (sort of) offended “everyone”. Its a win/win for you, if I’m to take your comment seriously.

        The duel of the personalities. 2016 is the just the repeat of 2008 with name calling and insults coming from the trump fans instead of the obama fans.

        Have nice day, Anthony

          You say that like I didn’t have a passive-aggressive mother…

          If anyone is reminiscent of the Obots, it would be the Trump haters who show up at his events with the sole mission of interrupting them (and him), and then flood the blogs like the “concern trolls” they were in ’08.

          Nice try, though, but sorry, piper – not today.

          I wouldn’t agree with that…I’ve posted comments pro Cruz (when I still was) and apparently they weren’t adoring enough and been attacked by other Cruz supporters – NOT THIS BLOG. Whenever I posted anything pro Cruz here all I received was discussion or silence. the difference is I don’t approach commenting with a nanny nanny boo boo attitude. I try to be respectful and I never post links…I feel like most of the crap you read out there and pass along is all biased anyway. Direct statements from said candidates is a different matter. Seems like the folks here who were pro cruz are no longer on his “team” or they don’t comment about the candidates or they’re gone. That’s evolution baby…check back in another month and it may be completely different.

          Personally, I appreciate the respectful environment here…I have always found it to be so. I may be wrong, but it kind of read like you sorta wanted to stir it up a bit…mission accomplished!

            I was pro Cruz to start. Man, has he been a disappointment. I think I am sitting this one out as no one gives me a “leg tingle”.😉 I am a NYS voter, so it won’t matter anyway.

            But, I do enjoy the head spinning, pea soup spewing TDS people. Makes for some of the best political entertainment I have ever seen!

            I’ve stayed away from those blogs obsessed with their Trump hate. Why should I try to change them or stir the pot?

            DM — you’re great. And you hit the nail on the head.
            The passive aggressive irrational Trump bashing followed by “I didn’t do anything” hypocrisy is what I can’t stand, not her alleged Cruz support.
            And I say alleged because she doesn’t support Cruz, she hates Trump and that stems from butthurt over her candidate (Walker) not being ready for prime time — she blames Trump instead of accepting the fact that her candidate was a dud.

            And ^there^ you have it….

            I still haven’t cancelled out the next Redstate gathering this summer, hoping things get better. It’s right after the GOP convention and I signed up because they said the nominee will be invited. We’ll see. In the meantime I stay off their blog, not that they’re Cruz supporters, just the ugly stuff they say about Trump. Believe me there are plenty of Anti-Trump blogs on the right.

    • jeffhas says:

      You did not offend *everuone* – Personally I just don’t GAF about what you (or anyone else) says. You’re entitled to your own opinions, and everyone already knows how you feel about Trump and your candidate, *EVERYONE* has a friggin’ agenda… So what?

      Sometimes it’s nice to hear someone else’s thought process (or even their agenda) even if I hate their guts, because – oh yeah, because I’m not perfect.

      Anyways, I agree Walker was great, until as Venus states he f*cked up his campaign and all… you seem to handle yourself just fine, so keep on trucking.

    Nice group of youngsters. Their mothers must be so proud.

    Jackass Cruz spox on FOX now insisting that Trump apologize to Fields lol. Jesus Christ, it just dumber by the second….

    Received an e-mail from Speaker Ryan that asked for money. In 36-point red letters, I replied: No Trump! No Vote! No Money!

    • dm says:

      I used to get mailers from Obama back in 08…not sure why, guess I was registered dem and they went to all of those. I would send those back and in large print, red marker write FRAUD, or LIAR, or FRAUD AND LIAR. It’s pointless, but it kind of feels good in the moment…I’ve always been a big fan of the cheap thrills!

    FUN NEW TOY: No photoshop? No problem. Here’s a meme generator that you can use without registering if you like. Did a general “politics” search, and got this page

    Type in any candidate, and you can caption pics. Nice and easy, total time saver.

    “GOP politicos and pundits looking on in horror as Donald Trump lays waste to the Republican Party had better brace themselves: immigration fights can dominate and disrupt the politics of an entire generation in America. It has happened before.”

    Trump isn’t backing down.

    • Venus says:

      Note he slips in “tape from his facility.” Trump supplied the police with the tape we’re seeing today knowing the Dem. Police captain (Hillary supporter) couldn’t resist going ahead with the bogus charges.

      People with their hair on fire over this who didn’t give 2 shits about Benghazi or the FBI investigating Hillary’s email server are exposing themselves for what they are.

  29. Venus says:

    Anthony and I discussed this upthread. Cruz keeps exposing his establishment bona fides by blaming Trump for “culture.” The GOPe finally found a hill to die on — stopping the guy who threatens their choke hold on power. Not Obama. Not Obamacare. Not foreign wars that we pay for by borrowing trillions from China to leave on the shoulders of our children and grandchildren.

    No wonder he’s so mad at the world.
