Given the numerous mass shootings we've had in recent years, I think anytime a politician brags about their ability with a gun, that's a sign of how incredibly tone-deaf they are on that issue. I just have zero patience for the "RAH RAH GUNS ARE GOOD!" crowd anymore.

We will be blessed as a nation when President Trump nominates Ted Cruz to the Supreme Court

not only the guys but girls who support can be pretty obnoxious (despite the fact that I'm big-time Bernie supporter at this point), so I think calling them Bernie-bro still feels wrong.

Fiorina Cheers Self Up by Firing Campaign Staff
BY ANDY BOROWITZ


After suffering a poor showing in the New Hampshire primary on Tuesday night, the former Hewlett-Packard C.E.O. Carly Fiorina cheered herself up by firing her entire campaign staff, fired staffers confirm.

Minutes after the returns started coming in, revealing that Fiorina had no chance of making a respectable showing, the former business executive acknowledged that she was “sad at first—but then I realized that every failure is an opportunity, and in this case I had an opportunity to give some people the axe.”

After delivering pink slips to her entire campaign staff, Fiorina said, “I started feeling better already.”

“That’s the one thing you have to understand about Carly Fiorina—she doesn’t stay down for long,” she said.

Fiorina said that she had “no regrets” about running for President, despite her dismal showing in New Hampshire. “I got to downsize a lot of people tonight, and that makes me a winner,” she said.

Trump will put his sister on the court and conservatives will flip out.

Please, Halloween is too far away for this kind of horror.

You have to love the attacks on Trump's "extremist" sister, because she supports Roe v. Wade. But fear not conservatives, she'll never make it on SCOTUS, going to Hofstra Law won't get you there in this day and age. It's as elitist of an "organization" as you could possibly get.

I should really like Bernie. I really should. But for some reason I don't.

To call Bernie supporters Tea party types is complimentary to them. If they truly are, it will be bad news for the GOP.

I think it's worth noting that what Bernie is proposing isn't that extreme. It's pretty much what FDR proposed, so Bernie isn't an outlier in American history. However, he is an outlier in the 36 years of neoliberal political consensus that we've had since Reagan was elected. And those 36 years have been disastrous for the poor, working class, and middle class. The only people who have seen their incomes rise has been the richest 1%.

I tend to agree with this, and claims of Sanders being an 'extremist' really rub me the wrong way - it's not dissimilar to hearing centre-left positions in Australia dismissed as 'loony' by certain sections. In this case, it's fairly telling where the mainstream has moved in past decades.
