Why Pastor Pence Is As Politically Alarming as La Palin

Kevin Siers, The Charlotte Observer via AAEC   The only dark duo with a shot of historically rivaling the political infamy of ole' Bomb Bomb McCain/Barracuda Sarah Palin is now the bad cast in this torturous national Reality Show, election 2016. Pence/Trump are now officially horror story actors. We refuse to admit that Conservative athlete Mike Pence 'won' the Veep debate Tuesday night. But man oh creepy creepy man, do not take his GOPper cred and misogyny lightly. It's only going to amplify in the coming final weeks before polling day, boasting mega vituperative nonsense and an ocean [...]

Same Problem Different Century, Women Still ‘Less-Than’ in the Patriarchal GOP

  Just when we think Trump and his spinners couldn't do more to repel women voters of any party … or none … the Great Swamp GOP machine produces more Odious Donald Ick to wade through. . Wear your best Orvis waders for this one. In fact, get three pairs on eBay and simply go single-use on this level of poli-nuclear waste. The Grand Old Party of white men has gone full-on retrograde, and the stink and spillage are spectacularly smellier than Seinfeld's hyper-strong B.O. in his Saab. . . Like the Seinfeldian B.O., it ain't easy to dispel and [...]

Death, Taxes and The Donald’s Duplicity: Who Wore It Better?

    916 million USD prime dollars. Of IRS deductions that could last until his Trump Squad of lawyers cannot run out the election clock any further. The New York Times' Susanne Craig was gifted with much of this info by snail mail … three whole juicy pages on Trump's 1995 taxes… Bouyah! An old school reporter's request (and some to-be-determined hands of 'fate') brought her the Get of the season. She aptly titled the revelatory article published on Sunday, "The Time I Found Donald Trump’s Tax Records in My Mailbox" A manila envelope led to old-style investigative journalism involving a [...]

GOP Alpha Dogs and Beta Cucks. So Seriously. #NotJoking.

  Applause to the hard-working left leaners over at Salon. And their comrades at Alternet. Headlines alone get an h/t with a flourish: The Alpha Dog that Wouldn’t Hunt: How Trump’s Ludicrous 'Alpha Male' Act Is Destroying Him sub: •  Trump's alt-right fanboys celebrate his so-called "alpha" masculinity -- but they're the real "cucks."   Matthew Rozsa of Salon has wisely held his mirth and thoroughly  covered the Belly Flop of a recent prat fall of The Dickish Donald ... in ways that should make you go Ick. Brendan Gauthier at Salon has also been feeling The antiTrump Vibe as volubly and magnificently. You see, [...]

Trump’s In a Glass Dawghouse Permanently Per Any Thinking Woman

    Just as Roger Ailes and Bill Cosby put punctuation to their own creepy sex scandals and waved anything resembling public respect au revoir, The Donald's long and storied history of bully behaviors/abusive speech re women pivots to Ick. Trump pretty much Triples Down on his most offensive bigoted commentary. He enjoys calling women pigs, deriding them as 'fat' and 'ugly' or 'semi-attractive' or 'slobs'. Or that there are somehow hordes of disgusting 400 lb. pitifuls no one but he can see, apparently to illustrate the dark depths to which his ship of idiots will sink. Then defend the descent. [...]

Hump Day Quickie: Brit Wit John Oliver

I’m obsessed with the highly hilarious John Oliver and here’s why … he’s smart funny. Doesn’t kneel often do the broad and low-low-low comic postures that come so alarmingly easily to Donald Dicque Trump. He’s just one wit-tay dude. We’ll take 30 minutes of Oliver and no no no ego-driven Morning Schmoe and Meeka, please, sir. Oliver captures ‘umorous electricity in a bottle, utilizing the rare Monty Python level ability to find your true gut and crack it completely up. For days. Then drew you back again and again for that reliable guffaw — the kind that’s a compulsory share. [...]

No Seat at THE Woolworth’s Lunch Counter For Trump

Woolworth Headquarters Embraced by the lunch-counter and sit-in Protest Movement. 1934.   Greensboro, North Carolina may not jump into your mind as a shining civil rights city at first mention. But add 'lunch counter sit-in ', and searing black and white photographs fill many of our inner eyes.   Sitting on the "wrong" side of the legendary Greensboro Woolworth counter. 1963.   The ironic development this week from the 2016 GOP Carnivale of Idiocy is soul satisfying. T'Rump got a firmly worded and unequivocal No(!) for once in his life. Fist bumps and kudos to the [...]

Protesters “Hate White People”, Rep. Pittenger of North Carolina???

    This professional grade revisioning is so cringeworthy it could hurt, fair warning. Regressives are just having a banging week. [Two take the urinal cake.] Mister Pittenger takes his cake for running a Fifties filter on life … until you run into a Trumpette that believes we are post-post-racial/sexist. […]

High Time For That Autumn Bernie Bump?

Bernie Sanders with Zephyr Teachout in New Paltz, N.Y. on Friday. Ms. Teachout is running for the House of Representatives. NY Times.   Are we all in love again yet? Come ON?! We are well under fifty days out here progressive peoples! Must be time for an injection of Bernie. The New York Times reports that from Zephyr Teachout to HRC, The Bern has his groove back and is uber-rebooted for the final round. NEW PALTZ, N.Y. — This crunchy college town, between the Hudson River and the Catskill Mountains, feels like an ideal place for a Woodstock [...]

Race and Gender, Meet Modern Guns, Gays and Bibles #OurRevolution

  Guns, Bibles and gays. For those of us who can remember the Johnson-Nixonian era of racial ignorance and nativist pearl clutching (make that pearl-handled derringer clutching for the helpless dames), this decade is ringing in far too many memories of a deliberately divided and globally embarrassing nation at war with itself and it's own liberty. There is some serious work to be done in some 48 days. The update of the Guns, Bibles and gays triangulation is potentially lethal, people. We believed that was as self-sickened a culture as we could imagine, following on the tarred heels of Jim Crow, Vietnam [...]
