A Hillary Landslide?

Ummm no.

Yeah… not gonna happen.

Is Hillary Clinton headed for a landslide victory in November? Can Trump prevent stupid bullshit from spewing from his gaping pie hole long enough to make a comeback? Well, to answer the second question I will make a bold prediction… no. To answer the first question, we need to dig a bit deeper. Continue reading

What Iowa means…

Iowa Caucuses
My $.02 on Iowa… On the Republican side:
Cruz beat Trump with a great get out the vote ground game, and this was a good win for him, but the bigger takeaway was the very good showing by Rubio, which now makes him the de facto establishment candidate in the race. Money will pour in to him and make him viable. 2nd place in NH will be a victory for him, but he will need to win SC to keep it going.
 
On the Democratic side:
This was a tie, yes Hillary was declared the “winner”, but that happened by coin toss in a couple of precincts (really). This is a moral victory for team Sanders, he started this contest with 5% of the polls and pulled neck and neck with a better organized and heavily funded Clinton. He will have a more decisive victory in NH, and may be able to pull close in SC, but ultimately I think she pulls that one out. The true momentum should be gained on Super Tuesday. I have a feeling this is going to be a long, close race, which would best suit Hillary.
 
Overall:
The most significant thing to come out of Iowa was the viability of Rubio. That is a troublesome development in my opinion for Dems… I think he would be the strongest candidate against either of them in the general, with a real possibility of overcoming the two major electoral hurdles that Republicans have… gain 20% of the Latino vote and sweep the swing states. His popularity will grow, and if you are a Democrat, that should keep you up at night. 
So, it’s early in the fight and there is a very long nomination road ahead… On to NH to see where we go from here!

Frightened Children

On Friday November 13, 2015 in Paris, the western world was reminded once again that there are people out there that want to kill us. The reaction to this, by those that claim to be the toughest among us, was nothing short of unmitigated FEAR. From calls for more guns and less gun control to the most disgusting and cowardly reaction of all… deny refugees fleeing ISIS a safe harbor, for fear some terrorists may try to sneak in with them. These reactions came from several GOP candidates for president of the United States as well a several sitting US Governors. Never have I seen such a group of COWARDS in my life! “Oh no, they might hurt me!!! Lets punish the innocent to show those terrorists we mean business!” Are you fucking kidding me with this shit? Some of these idiots even recommended allowing only Christian refugees in… how the fuck does one identify a Christian? I can tell you who ISN’T a Christian… the assclowns that are suggesting this garbage!

Not one of these brainiacs stop to think for one second that this is EXACTLY what ISIS WANTS!!!! They want you to push these people back to their war-torn, bombed out homeland… Once they are there those refugees will have a few choices, starve to death, be beheaded or set aflame by ISIS, or (the most popular choice) JOIN ISIS!

That attack could not have gone better for ISIS… they have the pussy Republicans wetting themselves like frightened children over here whipping up hatred for Muslims and refugees, all to help them recruit. They can rightly point out that The West doesn’t want them… in fact we hate them, so why not join ISIS to fight the West?

Bunch of cowards… the lot of you.

Bad Lip Reading the Republican Presidential Debate

Worst. Governor. Ever.

Rick Scott

The public tab for defending Gov. Rick Scott, Cabinet members and staff from public records went up another $300,000 according to public records obtained by the Herald on Wednesday evening. The documents were requested on June 17. Joe Raedle Getty Images

Florida treasure Carl Hiassen lays out the case why Gov. Rick Scott (R-FL) may be the worst governor in Florida history…

No other sitting governor has used tax money to end public-records cases that were caused by his own secretive misbehavior. Scott couldn’t care less.

Read more of Carl’s case that Scott is the worst ever in the Miami Herald.

Is the GOP Helping Bernie Sanders?

The enemy of my enemy is my friend.

There is something strange happening on the campaign trail these days, there appears to be a small effort on the part of some Republican outfits to bolster the campaign of Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont. In the last week there have been two items that have jumped out at me as being very strange, but explainable by the sage expression I opened with. The first is a campaign video (now removed) produced by Jeb Bush backing SuperPAC America Rising that touts the huge crowds that Bernie has been drawing as of late. That wasn’t the biggest deal, or all that effective if you ask me… the TRULY large cannon blast across Hillary’s bow came in the form of a now famous poll showing Sanders beating Hillary in New Hampshire. There are several interesting facts about that poll…
