I think that in the long run, sanford the mountain man in the House may be good for US!

Realistically, if we'd picked up that seat, the teabaggers would have almost certainly taken it back next year.

With this numbskull nitwit in a likely safe seat for at least a few terms, we can use him as an example of the hypocracy of a party that screams "FAMILY VALUES" as they support this whack job in public office. I'll pass on giving the list of sanford's many great flaws and misdeeds and crimes and lies because we in this community know enough about them. I just hope that the DCCC is smart enough to use this teabagger nimrod as a posterboy for swing district fund raising!

Also, think of all of the FUN we can have at this idiot's expense!

That just my 2 cents, and quite possibly overpriced at that!

Thank you for reading.


Tonight my wife and I are VERY PROUD (as usual) of our 7th grade son!

Today my son played his first baseball game for his team, the Winthrop Ramblers. He had 1 at bat and hit a double with 2 RBI. He was thrown out trying to steal 3rd base. Maria and I are VERY PROUD, not only for his stats, but more for the fact that when his team was losing, he showed that he has not one iota of "quit" in his body! what a great kid!

BTW, his name is Jonathan. Maria and I adopted him as an infant. He's a smart and handsome boy with a BIG heart and he never played baseball before he went out for the middle school team a few weeks ago. Maria and I thought he'd go out for track, but we'll support him in whatever sport he chooses to pursue. If he DOES eventually go out for track, we hope that his event isn't the javelin. We could easily live life without the "spear chucker" jokes. At almost 58, I don't really want to be in the situation of having to punch a racist jerk in the nose! We're quite happy with our melting pot family of a white dad, Puerto Rican mom and African American son. In our minds, we have the greatest family in the world, even on those days when we want to absolutely throttle each other!

Thank you for allowing me to share.


I used to really like James Bond movies.

When I was a boy, I LOVED going to James Bond movies. When "Goldfinger", "Thunderball" and "You Only Live Twice" came out I couldn't wait to go to see them in the theater. As a young pre-teen boy I loved the fights, shooting and, of course, the girls in bikinis.

Recently, however, as I've watched some of these movies, the perspective of a young boy has evolved into that ofa near58 year old husband and father, most especially in the treatment of women.

What was considered to be simply a man taking charge in the 60s, is what I consider to be rape today. Since I'm not a republican and since I am a very pro woman feminist man, I am not pro-rape. I'll leave that to the paul ryans, todd akins and little ricky santorums of the world. I prefer to respect women as I was raised to do.

Will I watch James Bond movies in the future? Yes.
Has my view of them changed forever? Yes.

I am so glad that the whole notion of the "Mad Men" era that all a man had to do to have sex with virtually any woman was to decide to do so is (hopefully) a thin of the past? Hell yes! I remember my bastard of a father living with that mentality well into the 80s and over the course of 2 marriages! Yuck!

Do I notice attractive women in bikinis at the beach or tight jeans at the stores? Yes.

Have I ever even considered being unfaithful to my wife? HELL NO!

Thanks for letting me rant.


I saw the BEST (maybe) bumper sticker today!

I don't remember just who this quote was attributed to "Obama isn't a brown skinned anti-war Socialist who gives away free healthcare. You're thinking about Jesus."

I'm not sure, but I MAY have posted this one before. If I did, I totally forgot about it. I have just one question, though.

My question is this: didn't bill orielley just announce that Jesus died for our taxes?


Is it me, or...

...did Sarah Palin(comparison) look like she had a snootfull of something that doesn't traditionally come in a Big Bulp cup when she raved at CPAC. Maybe she just always loks that bad these days?

In the interest of full disclosure, I didn't watch any of CPAC because I couldn't afford all the water that it'd take to get clean after their exposure to their drivel


From this DU Irishman,...

...Happy St. Patrick's day to you all.

Since Patrick was Italian, I've always wondered why this wasn't considered an Italian holiday also. However, growing up in the Philly suburbs and with many Italian friends whose parents frequentlu had me over for dinner, I can also say that when you're eating Italian, just about EVERY DAY is a holiday!

To give you my bona fides as an Irishman, I won't reveal my last name, but my mother's maiden name was O'Donnell and her mother's maiden name was FLANNIGAN!

So, to all DUers, Happy St. Pat's. To you lurking teabagger trolls, I say "The President is partly Irish, so SUCK IT"!


Sen. John Tester...

...is now following me on Twitter. I'm psyched!

He's the third member of Congress following me and the second senator. The other 2 are Sen. Amy Klobochar and Rep. Loretta Sanchez.

I just thought I'd share. Thank you for reading.


I have just a few things to say to and about SalmonChantedEvening and the Sunday LOL cats!

Thank you SOOO much!!!


One night mitt and queen ann are going over their expenses...

...and mitt says "queen ann, if you learn how to cook, we could fire the chef".

queen ann says "mitt, if you learned to f***, we could fire the gardiner"!

On edit: At the thought of firing 2 prople they both had an immediate climax!

Just a quick Monday morning joke, so please don't be TOO cruel!


I can't believe that I'm about to say something positive about willard romney.

Since marco rubio was such a total disaster for the GOPoop in giving the public the same talking points that got romney and the party as a whole shellacked last November, I have to say that the obviousconclusion is that willard is simply a much better liar than rubio or any of th other republican talkng heads. At least he is o accustomed to speaking with a mouthful of horseshit that he doesn't have to dilute it midsentence due to a very visible loss of bodily fluids.

He would still have been a disaster of a president, but at least he'd have ben more articulate than rubio.

Politically, however, I'd love to see a marco rubio/rand paul republican ticket in 2016. I don't expect much better regardless.

Thank you for reaing. I have to go take a shower now since I'd previously thought that I neve have to contemplat willard again. I'm so sorry that I was mistaken.
