The GOP may pull this out for us yet!

When it comes to the 2018 midterms, I’ve been saying it for at least the last 6 weeks now, “Play like you’re ten points down with 2:00 left to go in the game.”The numbers don’t matter, the intensity don’t matter, none of it means jack if you don’t get “souls to the polls.” Rest in the […]

Well, crap! Facebook finally got me!

Reposted from Daily Kos It was nice while it lasted, but nothing is forever. I gotta hand it to Mark Zuckerberg and his band of merry social misfits, they’re quick on the ball. It only took them 3 ½ years, but at long last my dirty little secret is open knowledge. I. Am. A. Russian. Bot. […]

How sharper than a serpent’s tooth it is to have a thankless child    King Lear   William Shakespeare Coming only 24 hours after the catastrophic landfall of Hurricane Michael on the Florida panhandle coast, the nation must now prepare for another man made disaster of epic proportions, a category 5 Twitter tantrum from The Pampers […]

Postcards from the front. Battlefield Nevada.

This is your intrepid reporter Murfster35, coming to you live from Vegas beach. The media missiles are flying overhead with increasing frequency, the battle is in doubt, but the body count won’t be known until November 6th. Here we are, 27 days from D-Day.

Ivanka Trump for UN Ambassador. Woot! Woot!

Every time you think it can’t get any more stupid, the moron train just keeps chugging down the tracks. With the sudden announcement of UN Ambassador Nikki Haley resigning from her post, there is some chatter in the media of Ivanka Trump actually replacing her. Why am I not amazed? And why am I not surprised […]

28 days to go. Eyes on the prize people!

You know, I’ve got to hand it to El Pendejo Presidente. When it comes to politics, he literally could fall into a shithouse, and come up with a sealed box lunch. Brett Kavanaugh was always meant to serve as a distraction. Trump could have picked any of a number of conservative judges that would have […]

The end of an era? We can only hope so.

Democrats vs Republicans. Not exactly new or novel, the two have been duking it out politically for more than a century and a half. Sometimes the Republicans win, and sometimes the Democrats win. And as political analysts become increasingly happy to remind us as we near yet another midterm election, sometimes the power swings are […]

The “wild card” in the 2018 election.

Every election is different. There are different candidates, different issues, and different personalities and scandals to consume and digest. But just as every election is different, so is every election the same in some ways. Until this one. Elections in this country are ruled by finite measurements. The two most common are registered voters, and […]

For the GOP to win, Kavanaugh must lose.

This really isn’t that complicated. There are only two possible outcomes to the Kavanaugh nomination  Either Brett Kavanaugh will be confirmed, or he won’t. There are only two sides here, Democratic and Republican, and each outcome will provoke a largely predictable reaction from each side. This isn’t pure speculation, there is polling data, and even […]
