The NRSC, National Republican Senatorial Committee, does not like the newest ad put out by the Lincoln Project, regarding four senatorial races which Cook Political Report currently has labeled in the toss-up category. The Hill: “Senators Collins, Gardner, McSally and Tillis have spent too much of their time in office enabling Donald Trump and not enough time fighting for the needs of their constituents,” Jennifer Horn, co-founder of The Lincoln Project, said in a statement. “Their defense of Trump’s unpresidential behavior and unfitness for office has disqualified them from the privilege of serving in the United States Senate,” she added. A spokesperson for the National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC) slammed the Lincoln Project in response to the video. “It’s sad to see the media treating this pathetic Democrat scam PAC seriously,” NRSC spokesman Nathan Brand said in an email. “Just because a group of bitter, failed political consultants are lining their own pockets by ripping off donors, doesn’t mean they deserve any attention for their lies.” This is an interesting characterization of the Lincoln Project, as “bitter failed political consultants.” The idea being, perhaps, that if they were happy and successful political consultants, they would be all in for Donald Trump? It would also be nice to know what “lies” Brand is speaking of. The text of the latest ad features newspaper clippings and is straight forward. However, as the year progresses, this is unquestionably the level of sniping that we’ll see more of. Here’s the offensive clip, if you haven’t seen it already. it goes without saying that these four senatorial campaigns were reached for comment and have not responded.
Let a smile be your umbrella…And your dumb ass is gonna get soaked! Lawrence Sanders Timothy’s Game This was never supposed to happen. Talk of impeachment has been ebbing and glowing in the halls of congress since 4 months after The Great Pumpkin took office in 2017. But that was never a concern for Trump, for three reasons. one, he was Trump. ‘Nuff said. Two, Trump’s GOP controlled both the House and the Senate, and they weren’t about to stir up trouble. Three, the Democrats are such pathetic wimps. The GOP has been cuffing them around since Obama took office, they couldn’t put a Blues Clues jigsaw puzzle together, much less impeach him. Fast forward to today. The Democratic led House of Representatives just codified the steps going forward for public hearings on the road to drafting articles of impeachment against His Lowness. Even Mitch McConnell is openly preparing for the eventuality of a trial in the Senate. The House bottle throwers are fine, safe and snug in their gerrymandered districts. But the Senate is a bigger problem, because Senators don’t have the luxury of gerrymandered states. What, oh what is a self respecting despot to do? Well, if you’re Donald Trump, you revert to historical form. You reach deep into your DNA, and you go back to the well that got you where you are in the first place. After all, this isn’t the first time in his sad, pampered, misbegotten life that Trup has been in a bind.How did he scurry out of those tight spots with his orangutan ass unscathed? How else? Throw around copious amounts of money, of course! Need to look like a jet setting, swinging billionaire when you’re not? Spread cash around Studio 54. City inspectors giving you grief? The right amount, in the right envelope, palmed into the right hand, makes the inspector disappear. Need to make a personally embarrassing Trump U fraud case disappear? Throw some money at it! Got a pron star and a Playboy bunny with big mouths putting the screws to you? Funnel a bunch of green to Mikey to make it go away. Trump’s answer to every problem is to throw money at it, when he isn’t busy telling a bankruptcy court that he doesn’t have any money instead. And according to new reporting, that’s how Traitor Tot is prepared to deal with the problem of potentially recalcitrant GOP Senators facing tough elections in 2020 as well. Throw money at them. God knows he’s got enough of it, he’s been fund raising since January 22, 2017, and the suckers are ponying up to empty their pockets. So the plan is, Trump will use the carrot-and-the-stick of GOP donations to vulnerable 2020 Senators to keep them in line. And he just did a dry run to see how it would go. Ass Kisser Lindsey “Trump’s being lynched!” Graham put out a totally useless Senate resolution condemning the Democratic House’s impeachment inquiry process. There were eight Senate GOP holdouts who refused to sign. So, Trump dangled donations to their 2020 reelection campaigns in return for their signatures on the resolution. And why not? After all, look how well that shit worked out with the Ukraine? Trump’s test shakedown concerned four vulnerable GOP Senators, in states where Trump’s job approval is under water. Martha McSally in Arizona, Trump’s favorite Senator, […]
Ding-dong, the witch is dead, the wicked witch, the witch is dead The Wizard of Oz RIP (Rot In Prison) Kirtjen Nielsen. The Kommisar of Kiddie Kages now finally joins her former boss, General John Kelly, in the “Shit scraped off of the bottom of my shoe” category of the Trump administration yearbook, and like Ebeneezer Scrooge before her, the only ones who will mourn her departure are the chain link fencing salesman. What brought about this stunning fall from grace? Apparently she dared to defy Der Gropinfuror’s demand that she reinstate the insane child separation policy that he himself had halted by executive order. But Wait for the McGuffin before you start rushing out and giving her credit for having belatedly developed a soul. She didn’t balk at reinstating the policy due to any noble aspirations for human dignity and decency. She opposed the move because with the influx of family units seeking asylum, they simply don’t have the space to house all of the new separated arrivals, and also, she didn’t want her name on a document that will directly defy a standing court order prohibiting the Trump administration from reinstating the policy.And for the mortal sin of using logic and law, she became “Kamikaze Kirstjen.” Don’t let the door hit you on the ass on the way out. Let’s just take a step back and look at why the policy was toxic enough to force His Lowness to have to back away and look like a spineless wimp to his base. The audio, video, and still images of toddlers being ripped screaming and kicking from their parents arms, and lying on concrete floors wrapped in nothing but tin foil blankets offended everybody with a soul marginally larger than Heinrich Himmler. Unfortunately for Trump, that included a sizable number of GOP Senators, who publicly broke with him over the policy when their constituents started erecting barricades in front of their offices, and receptionists quit rather than field any more phone calls. And just the “report” that Trump is considering reinstating child separation has a GOP stalwart like WI Senator Ron Johnson “concerned,” and Johnson isn’t even up for reelection in 2020 fer Crissakes! Trump appears to be dead set on reinstating this policy to rev up his base in the run up for 2020, and his designated hitter for Nielsen feels that he has a reach around work around to the legal issue. Mainly, offer the family nits the option of staying together in detention in concrete floored dog runs for an indeterminate amount of time, or choose to be separated, and spend an indeterminate amount of time in concrete floored dog runs, but at least they can’t see how miserable each other are.Almost certainly, any attempt to reboot the policy would lead to an immediate court injunction pending civil litigation, but Trumpenstein would already have scored his cheap points with his base by trying to stop the flood of immigrants, only to be once again stymied by the courts. If Trump insists on moving forward with this policy, it is going to place McConnell, and his Senate caucus in an untenable position, for two reasons. First, there were only 8 GOP Senators up for reelection in 2018, and they could safely insulate themselves from the issue by shyly backing away from […]
