Professor Van Helsing: Gentlemen we are fortunate Dr Seward: Why? Professor Van Helsing He's an imbecile Dracula Dead and Loving it 1995 As I pointed out a few days ago the 2002 Wellstone funeral ended up costing Democrats a Senate seat in Minnesota and was widely credited with helping the GOP in a midterm election … Continue reading The #McCainStone & Franklin Funerals Prove Donald Trump is Blessed with Foolish Enemies
I suggested a few days ago that the reason the MSM has gone all in on John McCain was the chance for him to play useful idiot in their quest to hit the GOP in general and Donald Trump in particular, however it was my opinion that while the coverage would reflect this the funeral … Continue reading Should we Get Ready for the Wellstone #Nevertrump Memorial Sequel?
By John Ruberry While "the betters" on the Sunday talk shows were praising John McCain, who died from brain cancer Saturday, Mrs. Marathon Pundit turned to me and asked, "Why isn't anyone talking about the number of houses he owned?" The TV talking heads weren't. In his laudatory statement about the Arizona senator's passing, of … Continue reading When Obama mocked McCain
Below you will find a piece I wrote while on jury duty back in 2010. It came to mind when I heard reports that McCain noted in his book that he regretted picking Sarah Palin as his running mate in 2008. Palin has stated McCain has told her otherwise but I tend to believe the … Continue reading Why Does McCain Regret Palin, because it is to her that the GOP owes their victories
Don Surber notes a stark contrast in how government healthcare values different lives by contrasting Charlie Card and John McCain. While Congress voted to give Charlie Gard a meaningless U.S. residency, they just voted to keep a system that will segue into the National Health Service, which is the British government's way of deciding who … Continue reading Obamacare, the NHS and The Choosers of the Slain
My late father was fond of many truisms. One of his favorites was, "Keep your words sweet; you might have to eat them." Being one who has far too many times made a meal out of self-baked Alpha Bits, I fully testify to the aforementioned statement's accuracy. This came to mind yesterday when learning of … Continue reading Be Careful What You Sign
By A.P. Dillon I have the distinct feeling most of us are witnessing a political version of whack-a-mole. However, in this case, it's now wack0-birds in place of the moles. Recently, Donald Trump gave out Lindsey Graham's cell phone number at a public event. Lindsey Graham took a whack back at Trump for 'selling fear and prejudice'. … Continue reading Playing Whack A Mole With Wacko Birds
But the election is over and the need to pretend to agree with voters is gone too. Sen. Wendy Davis said in a Monday interview with the Express-News that she opposes allowing the open carry of handguns and that she wishes she had a do-over on the support she expressed for the idea in her … Continue reading I’m old enough to Remember When Wendy Davis supported open Carry
by baldilocks I always found the term "fear-monger" to be a tell about the person using it. A person who mongers is, using the traditional definition, a dealer or a trader who sells a finite set of commodities. The second connotation goes this way: [the promotion of] a specified activity, situation, or feeling, especially one … Continue reading John McCain Was Right
Friday I wrote this about Muslim Brotherhood spokesman Gehed El-Haddad's attempt to dupe the western media: So it seems Gehad El_Haddad is back to his old game tweeting out the Muslim Brotherhood line in the hope that the Western media doesn’t spot the scam. Well I shouldn’t worry after all if a mere blogger like … Continue reading More Useful Idiots Self Identify
Via Unedited politics we have video of Senators John McCain (R-AZ) Lindsey Graham (R-SC) and Kelly Ayotte (R-NH) impromptu press availability after talking to Susan Rice today on Benghazi. Senator Graham makes a good point about John Bolton and I think Senator Ayotte hits it out of the park with this statement: Just to be … Continue reading The Common Thread of the Left Senators McCain Graham and…Somebody
Today's entry on the common theme of the left and their problem with truth comes from Morning Joe Item: On Morning Joe yesterday I saw the sudden post-election discovery of Benghazi (but not Senator Kelly Ayotte who Willie Geist refers to as "others") in the context of the following arguments: 1. It is OK to … Continue reading The Common Thread of the left: Today Morning Joe & Benghazi
"We owe it to the American people to make sure that we understand: Exactly what happened, What went wrong, Why couldn't the greatest military in the world respond when an attack occurred almost over a seven hour period, and why were there at the minimum, misstatements made and certainly misimpressions given to the American people … Continue reading Kelly Ayotte: The Invisible Senator at the Benghazi event
Today on Morning Joe Nicole Wallace was sitting in with Joe Scarborough & company (sans Mika) and the subject of President Obama's statement concerning the "private sector is doing fine". Plenty of people have hit the president on this but there was an interesting twist on the subject today beginning with the opening. The Show … Continue reading You mean 2008 Wasn’t Sarah Palin’s fault?
My guest this Saturday Barbara Espinosa links to this gem at seeing Red in Arizona who discovers that like the zombie and vampire craze Amnesty won't stay dead unless you stay on it: In an almost-missed article tucked away in the Christmas Day Phoenix Republic tabloid-size weekend newspaper insert was this gem. It seems Mayor … Continue reading And this is getting attention now?
