GOP Imploding Before Our Eyes

I don’t know if the GOP’s “professional” campaign managers decided to sit the 2016 election season out or what, but it sure seems like a bunch of amateurs running things this time around. Let’s start with Jeb!’s campaign. Maybe he thinks it’s his due, like he’s next in line or something, but he seemed dumbfounded when he didn’t skyrocket to the top of the heap. – Read the full article

GOP Begs Latinos to Vote Democrat

After the GOP lost the 2012 Presidential election, they called for an “autopsy”, or “comprehensive post-election review” of how and why they lost. RNC Chair Reince Priebus explained one aspect of the final report this way: “We need to campaign among Hispanic, black, Asian, and gay Americans and demonstrate we care about them, too. – Read the full article

Two Clowns Walk Into a Primary…

Reince Priebus is probably losing a lot of sleep these days; his party has been taken over by the fringe and his two front runners for 2016 are more like running jokes.

Trump: Same GOP Suit, Bigger Ass

Appearing on Fox “News” Sunday, Laura Ingraham was asked about Donald Trump’s lead in the polls. Her theory is: “20-30%” of Republicans  are “so livid” at the GOP they’re backing Donald Trump because, “…he’s saying things… that pretty much no one else is saying.” Is she claiming Trump’s bombastic, racist, denigration of  Mexicans is something new for Republicans? – Read the full article

I watched my grandfather break down at his funeral – at 86, my grandfather is one of the strongest, bravest men I’ve ever met.

Hillary for Women – More on the Economy

Despite progress, women in the U.S. are still undervalued as a whole. Its pretty well known that women are paid less for equal work: on average, women earn 78 cents per dollar that a man earns. Unbelievably, there is not one state where women earn the same pay as men. – Read the full article

Republican Idiot Brigade Finale

Wrapping up the Idiot Brigade this week we have Rubio, Santorum, Trump and Walker. Marco Rubio: If anything, Marco Rubio is still too “wet behind the ears” to run for President. I don’t think he knows what he stands for, so how could voters? – Read the full article
