Polk County Iowa Midterm Caucuses are biggest ever!

from Sean Bagniewski, Polk County Democratic Party Chair...

Well, it was a night for the history books. Despite a terrible snowstorm, it looks like it was the biggest midterm Polk County Caucuses in our history!

Thank you to the thousands of Democrats who came together to help organize our Party for the County Convention and for the general election in November. This will be one of the most, if not the most, important elections in our Democratic history as we fight to take back the General Assembly and the Governorís Office. Last night was the first step in that long battle ahead.

Thank you to the hundreds of people who volunteered to lead the 177 precincts across Polk County. From Site Leaders to Precinct Leaders to those working the check-in tables, everyone went over and above to make sure everything went smoothly. Thank you to our sisters and brothers in labor who plowed the streets so that we could all come together...

Nan Hayworth (R-Crazytown) on Stephanie Ruhl now

Talking conspiracies within FBI. She's a motor mouth and Ruhl lets her blather too long, IMHO, before the other two guests are allowed brief responses.

Did Rachel set a record tonight? 24 minute opening.

She's a good interviewer but a bad monologist. My forensic instructor could give her pointers. :
First guest at 28 minutes.

AM Joy needs to leave the preachers (Burns yesterday, non-racist Rev Forbes today) at the church

If I wanted to be preached about "God said all people are created equal" I'd go to a church. We will never be treated equal if it is left to the church. We need laws and enforcement, not prayers.

OMG! SNL has Joe and Mika down perfectly.

Why does AM Joy have that lying Trumpster Mark Burns on?

All he does is lie in defense of Trump.

Could Tweety let us enjoy this victory?

He has been obnoxious in the post-election show. Attacking Karine Jeanne-Pierre from Move On and letting that gop strategist Brabender (?) set the expectations for how Doug Jones should vote with the gop in order to be re-elected in 2020. She did her best but it is hard to make a point with two asshole talking over her.

Halperin's past sexual assaults brings a reminder that he's also a right-wing sycophant...


"Did Mark Halperin Harass Any Of His Conservative Christian Interns?"

"I keep thinking back to a moment in 2006 when Halperin, while promoting The Way to Win, a book he wrote with John Harris, appeared on Hugh Hewitt's radio show and attempted to ingratiate himself with Hewitt and his audience by denouncing mainstream journalism as infested with liberal bias and proclaiming himself unbiased. Near the end of the interview, there was this exchange:
HH: ... The media keeps hiring from the Harvard Crimson. It keeps self-perpetuating from self-elected elites.
MH: Can I introduce you to my interns from Bob Jones University?
HH: Iím glad that you have one. They must feel like a stranger in a strange world.
MH: No, because within my unit, weíre all about being fair and non-partisan. "

Civil rights supporter or not, the Playboy icon was a sexual predator, hardly better than Bill Cosby"


Trumps Voter Registration History for those repugs who deny he is a Republican

He ran as a Republican, he won the Republican Nomination for President, he sits in the Oval Office as a Republican. He is a Republican and one whose loyalty is only to himself.

From the Washington Post in November 2015 https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/the-fix/wp/2015/11/07/donald-trumps-got-a-particularly-strange-voting-history/

"And then we introduce Donald Trump. In a weird political world, Trump's voting history probably stands out. Donald Trump first registered to vote at Trump Tower in 1987, a few years after the building was completed. Since then, according to The Smoking Gun, he's been a Republican three times, a Democrat once, a member of the Independence Party once and, for a brief period, had no party identification at all."

"Curious about how often he actually voted, we reached out to New York-based political consulting firm Prime New York which has an updated list of voter behavior in the state. They provided The Post with Trump's history, back to his first registration. During that time, Trump voted in 18 of 28 general elections -- missing seven during the third-year races. He's voted in two of the 11 primaries he could have -- both of those in which he could have voted since 2010. He could have voted in two special elections, too, but didn't."
