Both Sides Do It Crapalooza

Now that tRump has been sanctified by the Rethugs get ready for the media to find ways not to call him out for his outrageous views. Rather, the media will find any statement from the Democratic Candidate, no matter who it is, straying from the perceived mainstream to be equal to any of tRumps outlandish statements.

On your mark, get set, retch.

Now that Carnival Cruz has left the scene I've noticed his followers in the media looking

bewildered and lost. I call them The Walking Ted.

"Liberal Media" NBC Nightly News Broadcasts Entire Show from tRump Tower

http://www.nytimes.com/2016/05/05/business/media/nbc-relocates-nightly-news-to-trump-tower.html?_r=0
snip:
In an unusual move on Wednesday, NBC relocated its flagship “Nightly News” broadcast six blocks north to Trump Tower, where Lester Holt conducted a live interview with Mr. Trump in his 26th-floor executive office.

Mr. Holt anchored the rest of the broadcast from the building’s gold-and-marble lobby— a signature Trump tableau — introducing segments about a Canadian wildfire and defective airbags as tourists milled behind him.

NBC plans to extend the same offer of broadcasting “Nightly News” from the home or headquarters of the eventual Democratic nominee, a network spokesman said Wednesday night.

News anchors frequently interview presidential candidates in their homes or campaign offices. Earlier Wednesday, Wolf Blitzer taped a conversation with Mr. Trump in the downstairs bar of the Trump Tower atrium, which was broadcast later in the day on CNN.

But few in the industry could recount another instance where an evening newscast — considered the symbol of a network news brand — shifted its entire broadcast to a candidate’s home turf.
I figure the other networks will be relocating to tRump Tower sometime soon.

Observation: Drivers with Dogs in the their laps

I love dogs. I saw today a person driving with a smallish dog in her lap. I figure with all the news about airbags injuring and killing people these days pet owners would be more protective of their animals. Maybe it's a case of it won't happen to me so never mind.

Benghazi Panel Now Wants to Hear Testimony from Hannity Radio Caller

One example of the committee’s problematic requests is “John from Iowa.”

“John from Iowa” called into the radio show of conservative host Sean Hannity in May 2013. He claimed he was a drone camera operator who saw what happened in Benghazi on the night of the attacks. He also complained that neither Congress nor the administration had interviewed him.

Hedger said the Defense Department “expended significant resources to locate anyone who might match the description of this person, to no avail.” But then committee staff expanded their request for officials to find all drone pilots and sensor operators who operated in the region that night — a search Hedger called “time-intensive,” to say the least.

To find this "drone pilot" they would have to send FBI agents into every basement in the U.S. where dwells the fervent Rethug radio listeners who are frantically redialing their Reich Wing heros with Cheetos dust encrusted fingertips.

John Boehner Thinks Ted Cruz Is ‘Lucifer’ And A ‘Miserable Son Of A Bitch’

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/john-boehner-ted-cruz-lucifer_us_5722034be4b0f309baefce9e
snip:
The former House speaker sat down for an interview at Stanford University on Wednesday where he discussed his previous job and the 2016 election. When asked about his thoughts on the Texas senator vying for the GOP presidential nomination, Boehner made a face and let it fly.

“Lucifer in the flesh,” the former speaker said of Cruz, according to The Stanford Daily. “I have Democrat friends and Republican friends. I get along with almost everyone, but I have never worked with a more miserable son of a bitch in my life.”

For once, the Orange Man has smoking coming out of his ears, not his mouth.

John McCain’s fundraiser busted for a meth lab with LSD, coke, heroin and counterfeit cash

http://www.rawstory.com/2016/04/john-mccains-fundraiser-busted-for-a-meth-lab-with-lsd-coke-heroin-and-counterfeit-cash/
snip:
Sen. John McCain’s re-election fundraisers all list the same name as the RSVP contact, but that name also showed up as a person arrested during the bust of a meth lab Tuesday.

In Maricopa County, Arizona, sheriff’s deputies made arrests when they found an operational meth lab as well as other illicit drugs when they were carrying out a search warrant for the woman’s home. According to The Arizona Republic, the sheriff’s office identified Emily Pitha, 34, who is a former staffer of retired U.S. Sen. Jon Kyl (R-AZ). She also has worked most recently as a campaign fundraiser for McCain’s 2016 reelection.

I wonder if it was after partying with this fundraiser in 2008 that Palin got selected.

Christian lawyer says she’s taking Glock to Target ladies’ room: ‘It identifies as my bodyguard’

http://www.rawstory.com/2016/04/christian-lawyer-says-shes-taking-glock-to-target-ladies-room-it-identifies-as-my-bodyguard/
snip:
The president of theocratic law group The Liberty Council announced on the social medium Twitter that she plans to carry a gun with her to the women’s restroom at Target stores so that she can shoot anyone she thinks is transgender.

Blogger Joe My God wrote on Monday, “Liberty Counsel president Anita Staver declared Friday that she will be taking her Glock .45 handgun to Target as protection against assaults by transgender patrons.”

Not even as a former infantryman did I ever hear, "drop your socks and grab your Glocks." What a wingnut.

Rethugs Plead Mercy for Pedophile Hastert

http://www.salon.com/2016/04/25/republicans_rush_to_defend_dennis_hastert_plead_court_for_leniency_in_pedophile_hush_money_case/
snip:
A list of the names of people who wrote to support Hastert was made public in court Friday, complete with over 40 letters of support for Hastert from the likes of former House Majority Leader Tom DeLay and the head wresting coach of the University of Chicago. Hastert’s defense team said he had received more than 60 letters of support for Hastert in recent months, but nearly 20 writers did not want their letters made public or had requested their letters be “withdrawn” from consideration after disturbing details of Hastert’s pedophilia emerged. (The Chicago Tribune published all of the letters released, and they may be found here):

Hastert’s supporters included a handful of former national and state politicians as well as local leaders, board members, police officers and others from his home base in rural Kendall County.

“We all have our flaws, but Dennis Hastert has very few,” DeLay wrote in his defense of Hastert. “He is a good man that loves the Lord.”s

Wait, I thought Delay was one of those Rethugs trying to impeach Bill Clinton for his behavior. You can always count on Rethugs for their remarkable degree of hypocrisy, and their ducking behind the "Lord" when in trouble.

So a young man was ready

to go out on his first date with a girl from a very educated family. Knowing nothing he asked his older brother what to talk to her about. The older brother, having some knowledge of the family, said she will love to talk about three things: food, family, and philosophy. Armed with this knowledge the younger brother takes his new date out for dinner. That night the conversation:

Him: Well, do you like cabbage?

Her: No, not really.

Him: Do you have brother:

Her: No, I don't.

Him: Well, if you had a brother, would he like cabbage?

Gotta love philosophy, it will rescue you every time.
