Stay classy GOP.

These guys just cannot stop themselves from being stupid swine. It's their nature.

New Carly Fiorina Website Gets Pushed Directly To Something Sheís REALLY Gonna Hate

As if Ted Cruz wasnít already horrible enough on his own, he decided to double-down on people not liking him by adding a woman who is against a womanís right to choose. Not only that, she lied about Planned Parenthood, was the CEO to a company that she promptly flushed down the toilet, including outsourcing jobs, and has absolutely no public policy experience whatsoever.



Speaking of Planned Parenthood, some clever person just took the website
CarlyFiorinaForVicePresident.com
and pushed it to go directly to the Planned Parenthood Action Fund donation page:

https://secure.ppaction.org/site/Donation2;jsessionid=CEBB0C83F597FA3B8C3D78F37D296F96.app20102a?df_id=17835&17835.donation=form1&s_src=rm_cf_160427



Not only quick thinking on the part of whoever put this together, but absolutely, breathtakingly brilliant.

Just to remind you, Carly Fiorina loved to lie time after time about Planned Parenthood, and fed directly into the ďbaby body partsĒ myth that circulated unsubstantiated for several months.

The fact that now her new mythical potential to be vice president now leads people directly to donating for Planned Parenthood isnít only amazing retribution, but pure magic.


Well done, internet. Well done indeed. This is what some may call ó karma.

Sources tell Variety Ferrell is attached to star as President Ronald Reagan in the Black List script ďReagan.Ē

Penned by Mike Rosolio, the story begins at the start of the ex-presidentís second term when he falls into dementia and an ambitious intern is tasked with convincing the commander in chief that he is an actor playing the president in a movie.

The script was so popular following its announcement on the Black List, an annual catalog of the top unproduced scripts in Hollywood, that a live read was done recently done in March starring Lena Dunham and John Cho.

'Religious freedom' measure defeated in Missouri House committee

Source: St Louis Post Dispatcj

JEFFERSON CITY ē Missourians likely will not vote on the controversial Senate Joint Resolution 39 after the House Emerging Issues Committee voted down the measure on a tie vote Wednesday.

Republican Reps. Anne Zerr of St. Charles, Caleb Rowden of Columbia and Jim Hansen of Frankford joined with the committee's three Democrats. With a tie 6-6 vote, the measure's tumultuous journey through the Missouri Legislature is probably over.

The resolution, if approved by voters, would have granted greater legal protections under the Missouri constitution to clergy and wedding vendors who decline to participate in a same-sex wedding.

Any course forward for the SJR is hard to see with a little more than two weeks remaining in the legislative session. Sen. Bob Onder, R-Lake Saint Louis, who sponsored the proposal, issued a statement indicating the measure was dead.

A Former Secretary Of State Just Eviscerated Trumpís Incoherent Foreign Policy Speech

Former Sec. of State Madeleine Albright tore apart Donald Trumpís foreign policy speech to reveal the incoherent ramblings of a dangerous man who hides his lies and inconsistencies behind simple slogans.

In a conference call with reporters, former Sec. of State Madeline Albright said:

Iíve gotten to listen to a lot of foreign policy speeches over the years, and in fact have given a few myself, and I was hoping to hear something that made sense. But Iíve got to tell you; Iíve never seen such a combination of simplistic slogans, contradictions, and misstatements in one speech. What Donald Trumpís goal today may have been was to convince us that he can be presidential, but instead of doing that he just underscored the fact that he is running the most reckless and dangerous presidential campaign in modern history.

I found many things troubling, but three that I think are worth pointing out. First, as his advisors pointed out, there were no details in the speech, and instead, we heard a lot tough talk and simplistic slogans and empty promises. Second, it was incoherent and riddled with contradictions. I canít list every example, but there were a few which stand out. He talked about regaining the trust of our allies while in effect promising to blackmail them in terms of supporting us. If you donít help us, we donít help you kind of talk. He then talked about the importance of Western values but questioned why we would think about supporting democracy in other countries. Then, I think the one that really made the least sense of all. He said he would work with Muslims to fight terrorism, but he has already alienated them with proposals to block them from coming into the country.

What I think was most troubling in this speech was the flat out dangerous ideas that he continues to embrace. His foreign policy slogan of America first is so clearly, maybe heís never read history, or he doesnít understand it. But he clearly didnít understand what the America Firsters used to talk about was that there wasnít any Nazi threat to American interests. If he keeps talking about American interests, but still recalling America Firsters, that is a mega contradiction.

His main message was that we need to be more unpredictable as a nation. Now, in fact, unpredictability is the only thing that you can count on if Donald Trump is our Commander in Chief. But do you actually want somebody unpredictable with the nuclear codes?

ďThe defendant is a serial child molesterĒ



let this sink in:


ďThe defendant is a serial child molester,Ē said Judge Thomas M. Durkin, of Federal District Court, in a tough rebuke of the former speaker before issuing his sentence. He added, ďNothing is more stunning than having Ďserial child molesterí and ĎSpeaker of the Houseí in the same sentence.Ē

Pointing out the vulnerability of Mr. Hastertís young victims, he said they were damaged for years.

ďIf thereís a public shaming of the defendant because of the conduct heís engaged in, so be it,Ē Judge Durkin said.

RUDE ONE: Trump is devaluing Clinton because she's a woman. Let's call that "playing the dick card."

L.A. Quickie: The "Woman's Card" Is Utter Bullshit


Noted sexist Donald Trump has accused Hillary Clinton of "playing the woman's card" in the election. Last night, after his Cruz-crushing victories in five states, he jerksplained, "Well, I think the only card she has is the woman's card. She has nothing else going. And frankly, if Hillary Clinton were a man, I don't think she would get 5 percent of the vote. The only thing she has got going is the woman's card."

Think about that for a second. Or don't. Because, see, Hillary Clinton happens to be a woman. And if talking about women's experiences and her own life is playing some vaguely-defined card, then you're saying that a woman isn't allowed to view the world and politics from the perspective she's gonna have whether you like it or not. What you're saying is that only the male's (or, more precisely, the white male, since we could add "race card" to this) point of view is the valid one. In fancy scholar-speak, we call that "hegemony."

Clinton herself addressed it, saying, in essence, "Suck it, cockface": "Now, the other day Mr. Trump accused me of playing the, quote, 'woman card.' Well, if fighting for women's health care and paid family leave and equal pay is playing the woman's card, then deal me in." When a male Democrat talks about abortion rights or other issues, he's not accused of playing the woman's card. So what's the only thing there that's different about Clinton?

Yeah, she's a fuckin' woman. It ain't only her card. She owns the fucking deck. Let's stop this bullshit argument that because someone running doesn't see the country with a penis in her way, it's somehow a lesser perspective. And maybe someone should point out to Trump that a lot of people are voting for him because of his sex.

"Iím the father of a 21 year old daughter. There are lots of things I worry about."

Iím the father of a 21 year old daughter. There are lots of things I worry about. I worry about her being sexually assaulted, because that happens a lot. I worry about her being the victim of a drunk driver, because that happens a lot. I worry about her being the victim of gun violence, because lots of people die from gun-related injuries. Hereís what I do not worry about: I donít worry about her being attacked in a restroom by a trans woman because (a) it has never happened; and (b) trans women are the most victimized group of people Iíve ever met, and the least likely to commit a crime of indecency in a restroom, because they are afraid of getting beat up when all they want to do is pee. And here is something else I donít worry about: I donít worry about my daughter being cruel and inhumane to trans men, women or kids, because my wife and I have raised her to have values and because she is a kind person. There are things to worry about. and then there are things people want you to worry about to conceal their agenda of discrimination and hate. Wake up.
