More trouble for Lindsey: Dem super PAC to spend big on S.C. Senate race

Donald Trump’s mewling vestigial twin Lindsey Graham has been whining about how his Democratic Senate opponent, Jaime Harrison, is “killing” him financially. Just look at this nattering nabob of negativity: x Here's every time Lindsey Graham begged for money over the last few days and holy shit is he pathetic. pic.twitter.com/CzOTavhVkQ— Brian Tyler Cohen (@briantylercohen)…

The Supreme Court Precedent Republican are ignoring

and yes, it involves a REPUBLICAN President, one Abraham Lincoln. Chief Justice Roger b Taney, he of the infamous opinion in the Dred Scott case,  died Oct 12, 1864.  Republican President Abraham Lincoln had a Republican Senate. Lincoln did not make a nomination until December 6, AFTER the election, which he won. But then Lincoln…

Why Do Black People Think So Much of Race…?

Black people get that question put to us a lot more often than you would think. It is generally followed by the statement, ‘well…I don’t see color’ or ‘things have changed’ accompanied by a raised eyebrow of incredulity. Unlike the police or people who believe in witchcraft, people of color cannot take off their skin…

Obama remembers RBG, calls out GOP on blatant SCOTUS hypocrisy

President Obama has weighed in on the passing of Ruth Bader Ginsburg and the confirmation battle that’s sure to ensue. Here’s his statement in its entirety: Sixty years ago, Ruth Bader Ginsburg applied to be a Supreme Court clerk. She’d studied at two of our finest law schools and had ringing recommendations. But because she was…

RBG has passed away at 87

Ginsburg, the second woman to serve on the Supreme Court, died of complications from cancer. In a statement dictated to her granddaughter Clara Spera days before her death, she said, “My most fervent wish is that I will not be replaced until a new President is installed.” x WASHINGTON (AP) — Supreme Court says Justice Ruth…

MT-Sen: Steve Bullock (D) Sues Trump's Postmaster General Over Mail Delays

Hell yeah: Gov. Steve Bullock filed a lawsuit in U.S. District Court in Great Falls Tuesday against the United States Postal Service and Postmaster General Louis DeJoy for what he calls “unlawful actions that have directly harmed Montanans by impeding the flow of mail.” It appears Bullock is the first governor to attach his name…

Another betrayal: Republicans sabotage COVID talks so Trump can sign meaningless executive order

The Senate has adjourned for the weekend, after refusing to negotiate with Democrats for a desperately-needed COVID-19 relief bill. Democrats had compromised, agreeing to come down yet again to $2 trillion spent to help the country through the worst health and economic crisis in our nation's history. It’s just too expensive, Republicans say. For context, the GOP Tax Scam—a 2017 giveaway to the…

Mitch McConnell thinks expiring COVID-19 benefits are super funny

Yertle the Goddamn Fucking Disgrace (apologies to Dr. Seuss) doesn’t seem to think helping out unemployed workers and others screwed sideways by the coronavirus pandemic—and Donald Trump’s feckless, floundering response to it—is an urgent matter. At least not as urgent as, say, forcing barmy right-wing justices on us, our children, and/or our still-frozen embryo clones. Thursday, Politico’s…

Lincoln Project goes after Moscow Mitch as #RichMitch

Having raised more than $16 million last quarter, the Lincoln Project is now further expanding its targets to include the high value Senate Majority Leader. And including the number of former Republican operatives that the Project does, they know where the bodies are buried. Take a look: x YouTube Video

Moscow Mitch suggests he may bail on Republican National Convention

Ooooh, Grampa Rage Diapers is not gonna like this one bit. Earlier today, Moscow Mitch — and, yes, he is still and forever Moscow Mitch — was asked whether he’s planning on attending the Republican National Convention in Florida next month in light of the recent spike in COVID-19 cases in the state. x Senator Mitch McConnell,…

GOP strategist: 'We built this moment. And then we looked the other way'

This Washington Post op-ed from Stuart Stevens, an author and Republican political consultant, is the mother of all mea culpas. (He’s plugging a book, so maybe some of this will seem a bit convenient and self-serving. Then again, the title of the book is It Was All a Lie: How the Republican Party Became Donald Trump.)…
