So far, Donald Trump is made of Teflon. It seems that he can say whatever he wants-no matter how outrageous it is and somehow maintain a commanding lead in most Republican polls. I don’t have anything to add on this subject that hasn’t already been said. But it’s worth noting how easy it is to be a egomaniacal lunatic and still score points with Republican voters. Trump is having the time of his life fucking with the system, and people hate the system so much that they’re ready to elect anyone who shits on it.
Sadly, the Donald is cooked in the long game. Republicans are very fickle; they have a flavor of the month during these contests. Trump will fuck up eventually or simply peter out because he’s in front too early. It’s the kiss of death. Observe this chart of the 2012 race; you’ll see that several “fringe” candidates found favor with voters for a time, only to ebb and virtually disappear.
It may take a while, but Bush 3 will be chugging along quietly behind buffoons like Trump, waiting for the clown car to empty out. What remains to be seen is who will be next whackadoodle to hold the mic for a few months. I can’t wait!
I wonder when Hillary Clinton will comment on this, or is she afraid?.
(Lincoln) Chafee, the former Democratic governor of Rhode Island, brought up (a) key issue when he announced his quixotic presidential bid to a half-empty room in the soulless suburb of Arlington, Virginia. He indicated that moving to the metric system could help right some of the wrongs committed during the Iraq War, as it would be “a symbolic integration of ourselves into the international community after mistakes of the past 12 to 14 years.”
Yeah. The key to contrition is going from yards to meters, and liters to quarts. Jesus Christ, Lincoln. Of all the fucking things that need attention, dude.
If you think that’s stupid, someone on the other side actually responded to this. I don’t know which is worse:
(Bobby) Jindal, the Republican Louisiana governor who is expected to soon announce that he, too, will join the fight for the White House, does not agree with Chafee on this important issue.
“Typical Democrat—wants to make America more European,” Jindal spokesman Michael Reed told Politico. “Governor Jindal would rather make the world more American.”
Fuck the kilogram, ‘MURICA! My ruler! MOLON LABE!
Can we just swear Clinton in and be done with this whole charade that anyone has a choice in the matter?
Up until recently, Scott Walker has enjoyed a robust presence in the presidential race, even though he hasn’t declared yet. He’s playing very coy about his views, trying to remain the least controversial choice. A Serious Contender. No more:
Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker defended his decision to sign a law in Wisconsin mandating ultrasounds for women before they get abortions, calling ultrasounds “just a cool thing out there.”
In an interview on “The Dana Show,” the Wisconsin Republican and 2016 presidential hopeful boasted to host Dana Loesch, “We defunded Planned Parenthood, we signed a law that requires an ultrasound. Which, the thing about that, the media tried to make that sound like that was a crazy idea.”
Defending the legislation against what he called the “gotcha” media, Walker said, “Most people I talk to, whether they’re pro-life or not, I find people all the time who’ll get out their iPhone and show me a picture of their grandkids’ ultrasound and how excited they are, so that’s a lovely thing. I think about my sons are 19 and 20, you know we still have their first ultrasound picture. It’s just a cool thing out there.”
Guilting women into an unwanted pregnancy is “a cool thing”. That is, if you can find a doctor to violate your reproductive rights in Wisconsin. This will not play with moderates. I want to know-how can Scott Walker be a contender for president when he is ruining his home state? Is the plan to fuck the state dry and then move on to destroying the federal government? Methinks so.
Ready for a good one? Rick Perry says he was stoned during the 2012 debates:
Today I donated to the Clinton campaign. I got a car magnet and chipped in ten. But the rest of the Hillary store, well… it leaves something to be desired. I don’t like the logo either. Do you?
OK. I understand, progress and all. But I wouldn’t know what it stood for if I wasn’t already aware of what it was. It doesn’t communicate. I guess I can be glad that is isn’t necessarily red white and blue for the flag suckers.
What difference does it make? None. The Republicans are hopelessly confused and that is that. Donate or shop here.
