The Punk is shameless.

Even the cultists should be embarrassed.
Character still matters.  It always matters.

May 3, 2016 - the day the Republican party left ME.  I am now without a Party, and quite possibly without a country.  May God have mercy!

The man is truly disconnected to reality. He actually believes we elected him king, and he is above all us peons. What a miserable creature Obummer is.

The only people responsible for this stupidity are the GOP.  Haven't I been saying - ad nauseam - since the issue came up that if the GOP didn't work out an extension immediately, as in yesterday, the democrats were going to start making political hay out of this?  Didn't I?

I hate to say it - and I also love to say it - but I was 100% correct.

The GOP is, once again, demonstrating just how skillful it is at snatching defeat from the jaws of victory.

I hope nobody's got their hopes pinned on the GOP gaining control of the Senate, or keeping control of the House, because if this is any indication, they're going to lose BIG in November.

I'm going to break my self-imposed moratorium just this once:  How blind do you have to be to see that rhetoric matters more than detailed analyses when it comes to swaying the public mind through political speeches?  Do you really want to let the millstone, the albatross, of Obamacare slip from the collective neck of the democrats while they succeed in portraying the GOP as out-of-touch plutocrats only interested in helping "the rich" and socking it to the not-rich?  Are you - and most of the people on this forum - really that stupid?

There, I've said it; you can go ahead and hit 'abuse' or give me a suspension for all I care.  Sometimes the truth hurts and shooting the messenger won't change the truth one whit.

Good night.

Rhetoric always matters. Politics is 99% impression and 1% action.

39 percent impression, 60 percent screw-up, 1 percent action. (being generous on the screw-up part)

What the heck is the big deal with sno-cones (oh, I'm sorry, "shave ice"), anyway? When did that become such a delicacy? And why don't they say "shaved ice"?
And now we return to our regularly scheduled criticism of the GOP.
