Martha McSally *really* doesn't want to answer questions about her support for Trump

Ha ha ha! The rats aren’t just abandoning ship — they’re scared to admit they’ve ever been near the ship. Because it’s a bad ship, man. Bad, bad, bad. x The full exchange is especially cringeworthy pic.twitter.com/aP93PNcC5M— Andrew Joseph (@AndyJ0seph) October 7, 2020 < p class=”is-empty-p”> MARTHA MCSALLY: “[Mark] Kelly says he’s an independent and a…

Report: Biden's widening lead has 'panicked' Republicans

I’m getting a real Custer at Little Bighorn vibe lately when it comes to the GOP. Donald Trump has very quickly become an albatross around Republicans’ necks. An albatross with COVID. Which is the worst kind of albatross, really. The Hill: Trump is struggling mightily with the groups that powered his 2016 election victory, including…

Sen. Ron Johnson attended GOP fundraiser after testing positive for COVID

Hmm, RoJo the Clown doesn’t care if he kills his supporters either, apparently.  The Daily Beast: U.S. Senator Ron Johnson tested positive for COVID-19 on Friday. But, after finding out he had the virus, which has killed more than 220,000 Americans to date, the Wisconsin Republican still chose to attend an Oktoberfest fundraising dinner that…

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)…

Lindsey Graham keeps begging for money on Fox News, and it is hilarious

Schaden-Friday rolls along with an update on the Lindsey Graham campaign’s financial woes: 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) September 25, 2020 Got that? It appears Democrats are killing him financially. So, so sad. Gee, why…

Never Ceases to Amaze Me…

It took credible evidence and the words of the self-identified victims of underage sexual advances, to allow Doug Jones to defeat Roy Moore for the Alabama Senate seat vacated by Jeff Sessions in 2017. Mr. Jones deserved to win the race on integrity alone. Confirmed in 1997 as the United States Attorney for the Northern…

What the hell is Chuck Grassley tweeting about?

I know there are a lot more pressing concerns right now, what with the future of the U.S. Supreme Court hanging in the balance, but I do believe it’s relevant to point out that the guy tweeting this cryptic twaddle about a “pidgin” and a deer “carcas” is third in line to the U.S. presidency….

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…

Jaime Harrison strips the bark off Trump and his woebegone ventriloquist dummy, Lindsey Graham

What’s the old saying? When you live in Donald Trump’s sigmoid colon, you shouldn’t throw stones? Something like that. Lindsey Graham insisted that his Democratic opponent, Jaime Harrison, release his tax returns. Harrison waited a few days and then delivered this zinger:  x Done. Now do President Trump. https://t.co/dphjGfMY6R— Jaime Harrison (@harrisonjaime) September 15, 2020 Uh…

Collusion between Trump campaign and Russia never ended

As we begin a week of pure GOP propaganda, it’s time to remind ourselves how we got here as well as remind ourselves that the GOP is still entangled with Russia as well as malign forces. With less than 100 days before the presidential election, U.S. intelligence officials are warning that Russia and other adversaries…

Is it time to publicly disclose classified intelligence on the Senate floor?

There is Russian interference in the 2020 election, likely not at the scale of 2016, since they’ve garnered numerous financial and political advantages from their many Congressional puppets. Remember when the NRA was a conduit for Russian election interference. Some senators have been suggesting that they might reveal classified information because they are shielded from…

Nobody Voted for Bush Either?

When George W. Bush stood in the rubble of the World Trade Center in 2001, a plurality of Republicans and to be fair a large number of Democrats cheered him. George W. Bush rallied America in the midst of its 9/11 sorrow, in response to firefighter Rocco Chierichella yelling, “We can’t hear you!” Bush said,…

Trump is Giving the GOP Long-term Shpilkes

“Shpilkes” is a good old Yiddish word meaning “agita” — which is a good old Italian word meaning nerves, anxiety, agitation, butterflies in the stomach. In whatever language, it’s what the GOP (Grumpy Obstreperous Party) leadership is feeling these days. And not just about losing the White House, but about losing the House and Senate…

Jeff Sessions goes all lost cause on Doug Jones

Stealing valor is not like taking your taser, much like renaming military bases happens normally. Jeff Sessions is desperate for “his” voters  x … whose courage & duty reached the highest levels, on both sides. Naming U.S. bases for those who fought for the South was seen as an act of respect and reconciliation towards…

“American Taliban” trends again because Ted Cruz thinks Columbus is a religious icon

We are in some strange space where to Ted Cruz, those people taking down monuments to genocidal explorers are like fundamentalist religious fanatics practicing iconoclasm.  Ted doesn’t understand iconoclasm nor has he read kos’s book, but he went there on Twitter. x No, sweetie. THIS is the American Taliban. pic.twitter.com/VnoqlwiK5L— Adam Sank 🏳️‍🌈 (@AdamSank) June 11, 2020…

Smash & Grab: more corporate looting in the latest failed GOP Senate relief bill

Giving the GOP emergency powers is another scheme to loot the treasury, much like the attempts to defund social security and Medicare. So much cynicism in the GOP pimping a stimulus package that favors corporate income. x Sen. Jeff Merkley explains why Senate Democrats blocked Mitch McConnell's corrupt coronavirus stimulus bill, “This is absolutely the…
