Political discourse has come such a far distance in only ten years, and tragically, the journey has taken us to a destination which was neither foreseeable, nor desirable. Alexander Soros, son of billionaire George Soros and deputy chairman of the Open Society Foundations, wrote feelingly in the New York Times today about the new normal […]
Well, well, well, nobody saw that coming. While Joe Crowley is a Democrat, his stunning defeat last night just highlights in my mind something I’ve been saying about Republican chances in November for six months now. Here’s a few of the things I’ve taken away from last nights surprise result. To my mind, Joe Crowley’s defeat […]
Nobody is going to confuse FOX News commentator Juan Williams for a flaming liberal. But he’s not an over-the-top, insane right wing firebrand in the Tucker Carlson-Ann Coulter camp either. Like Alan Colmes did in his gig with Sean Hannity several years ago on FOX, his role on The Five is to try to provide a […]
The sound of conservative crowing is deafening today as right wingers contentedly cluck about liberal hypocrisy in the wake of the sudden changing of the guard in the New York Attorney General’s office from Eric Schneiderman to ”intimidatingly smart” Barbara Underwood. As usual, the meshes of the alt right mind are too coarse to perceive […]
This just in. Steve Schmidt, a Republican who has served on the campaigns for George W. Bush, Arnold Schwarzenegger and John McCain has left the Republican party. 29 years and nine months ago I registered to vote and became a member of The Republican Party which was founded in 1854 to oppose slavery and stand […]
Word of Michael Avenatti being arrested in Los Angeles for domestic violence broke via TMZ, a site known for celebrity gossip. The Associated Press confirmed that Avenatti had indeed been arrested, and now BuzzFeed has obtained a statement that would seem to exculpate Avenatti, from his ex wife, Lisa Storie-Avenatti’s, lawyer: “My client and I have reviewed the TMZ article alleging that my client, Lisa Storie-Avenatti, has been injured and that Michael Avenatti has been arrested as a result of some incident that occurred between them. This article is not true as it pertains to my client,” the statement said. “Ms. Storie-Avenatti was not subject to any such incident on Tuesday night. Further, she was not at Mr. Avenatti’s apartment on the date that this alleged incident occurred. My client states that there has never been domestic violence in her relationship with Michael and that she has never known Michael to be physically violent toward anyone.” “He hasn’t been officially booked. He is in the process,” LAPD Officer Jeff Lee told USA TODAY. In a tweet, the LAPD wrote, “We can confirm that today LAPD Detectives arrested Michael Avenatti on suspicion of domestic violence. This is an ongoing investigation and we will provide more details as they become available.” This is a developing story and will be updated. UPDATE: 7:00 p.m. PST 6. LAPD confirms that Avenatti was booked on a felony domestic violence charge. His bail is set at $50,000. — Yashar Ali 🐘 (@yashar) November 15, 2018 Evidently, the person making the charge is not his ex wife. It is a girlfriend or other domestic partner. No details are forthcoming about that. Avenatti’s first wife, Christine Avenatti-Carlin, has also provided a statement tonight, via his office: “He has never been abusive to me or anyone else. He is a very good man.” pic.twitter.com/XM05v0M0p7 — Ruby Cramer (@rubycramer) November 15, 2018 New statement from @MichaelAvenatti via his law office: “I have never been physically abusive in my life nor was I last night. Any accusations to the contrary are fabricated and meant to do harm to my reputation. I look forward to being fully exonerated.” pic.twitter.com/f2fnThdt7O — Ruby Cramer (@rubycramer) November 15, 2018 More details as they become available.

Behold, Hurricane Florence was a category 4 storm a few days ago and that worried televangelist Pat Robertson aplenty, because his Christian Broadcasting Network is right in it’s path. So he decided to take matters into his own hands, and commanded Florence, in the name of Jesus, of course, not to harm his facilities and […]

In the beginning, there was homo erectus. Then came homo sapiens. Now we have home MAGAt, and seeing is believing. They may not be the Best People, but they are the most stick, stone stupid ones. I feel sorry for the woozle. There’s no question that the woozle is smarter, it’s just debatable whether the poor beast can keep the fool in its charge from doing serious bodily injury to himself, and right now, it looks like the answer is no. They better put thorazine in the MAGAts KFC, doncha think? Or keep him tied up in the yard?
