Drug CEO Shkreli to Jeb: 'I'm an avid supporter

Not even his momma can save him now:

Embattled drug executive Martin Shkreli says he is supporting Jeb Bush for president.
“@JebBush i’m an avid supporter,” Shkreli tweeted late Friday night.'

LOL: "No one’s looking out for the white guy anymore”


Scarborough: Leaving Iowa, Top Journalists Quietly Told Me 'You Know Bernie Won'


'Men who are comfortable in their own skin can pretty much go anywhere & be comfortable-Like Jesus'

Donald Trump and Marco Rubio are up in arms about President Obama going to a Mosque.

Rubio’s objections are far more sinister, of course, because he’s a pro at this.

Rubio then compared anti-Muslim bigotry to friendly sports rivalries, and argued that Obama’s speech was really the thing causing division. “But again, it’s this constant pitting people against each other — that I can’t stand that. It’s hurting our country badly,” Rubio said.

So, it’s really okay to hate Muslims. Hey, you hate the Dallas Cowboys, don’t you? Same exact deal.

Trump, of course, wanted headlines so he said some outrageous things so the press would pay attention to him.

“I don’t have much thought, I think that we can go to lots of places. Right now I don’t know if he’s — maybe he feels comfortable there,” Trump said of Obama’s mosque visit during an appearance on Fox News. “We have a lot of problems in this country … there are a lot of places he can go, and he chose a mosque.

Men who are comfortable in their own skin can pretty much go anywhere and be comfortable. You know, like Jesus did.

RUDE PUNDIT: Believe It or Not: You Can Support Bernie and Not Despise Hillary (and Vice-Versa)

The Rude Pundit is leaning towards Sanders in the primary because Sanders' views on shit more readily align with his. That's it. It's the simplest comparison in the world: "Who is most like me? Okay, they've got my vote." By saying that, the Rude Pundit will be accused of supporting a gun-loving freak who lives in a fantasy world, even if none of those things are remotely true. When he was leaning Clinton, he was accused of supporting a Wall Street shill who was just fuckin' skeevy, which, again, there is not a whole lot of proof for any of that. And if Clinton wins the Democratic nomination, he will support her and vote for her because the Rude Pundit is not a fucking idiot. He has no problem voting for Clinton because the alternative is not to vote, which gives more support to a Republican, and fuck that noise with a sharpened chainsaw.

This is not to say that you can't find fault in things that Clinton or Sanders have done or voted on. Jesus Christ, they've both had long careers. Of course they're gonna do shit that pisses you off. While we're all handjobbing President Obama for the ACA signups and the unemployment rate, you still have to reconcile that with the TPP (or dismiss it and call anyone who mildly criticizes the president "racist" because you're just that special kind of asshole).

There are two fucking missions for whoever gets the Democratic nomination. First, prevent a Republican from getting into office. And we can argue until the cows come home, take a shit, and go to sleep about which polls prove which candidate can do that. But no matter what, you have to stop the Republicans from fucking this nation harder than Chris Christie on his wife's ass while she wears a Hillary mask on the back of her head.

And then the second mission is to take the Congress back, all of it, and it better be by a filibuster-proof majority. Otherwise, nothing is going to get done beyond executive orders and some foreign policy efforts.

Dispute each other, sweet BernieBots and HillaryBots (or Bernie Bros and Hillary...Harridans? What awful, sexist thing is it? It's all so goddamn stupid), but if you declare you despise the other candidate, you should ask who you're believing, especially when it comes to Clinton. You might be laying down in a bed of slime.

“And when he became Senator, I was like, ‘Oh my God, he called my mother a whore!’”

Beardsley says that she and Cruz, who lived next door to her close friend, would occasionally get into political arguments when she came by. “I’m a classic blue state anti-death penalty pro-choice liberal—I represent everything wrong with America, as far as Ted Cruz is concerned,” she said during a phone conversation, laughing. “We would just yell at each other.”

“And when he became Senator, I was like, ‘Oh my God, he called my mother a whore!’”

He did? According to Beardsley, the two were having an “intellectual debate” about abortion one day, when she disclosed that her mother had once ended a pregnancy. “I remember telling him my mother had two children, they really couldn’t afford to have another child, they really would have struggled. And it was a very difficult, painful decision for my mother.” At that point, she said, “he became vicious and made it personal,” eventually telling her, in his loving way, “that my mother was going to hell and was a whore.”

“He made me cry, he was really awful,” she added. (Two other students who lived in Butler at the time recalled Beardsley and Cruz getting into an argument over abortion that resulted in tears.) “It was one of the worst things that anyone’s ever said to me.”
