AdLib 7 days ago
It has been going on a while Adlib,test after test
Beatlex

7 days ago
Damn, they can’t figure it out?
AdLib 7 days ago
Adlib.this is about the last thing they can try(I hope)
Beatlex

Busy week, slm, need to chill out and relax this weekend.

sillylittleme

My daughter is now watching Sharknado 3.
AdLib 7 days ago
Hey Harleigh, Hey Glenn
sillylittleme

7 days ago
In this one, the sharks have combined DNA with Donald Trump and are eating up every media outlet.
AdLib 7 days ago
Hi guys!
Harleigh

7 days ago
Just kidding.
AdLib 7 days ago
Harls!!
Beatlex

7 days ago
Hey Harleigh!
AdLib 7 days ago
Ad – I was waiting for the punchline
sillylittleme

7 days ago
Hey SLM, hey Beatlex, hey Harleigh, hey AdLib (last but not least)!
glenn

7 days ago
Hey glenn!
AdLib 7 days ago
How goes it Glenn?
sillylittleme

7 days ago
She really is watching it now. It’s all about stunt casting, they cast Ann Coulter as the VP.
AdLib 7 days ago
Ad – Really?? Does she get eaten by a shark?
sillylittleme

7 days ago
No, they thought she was one of them.
AdLib 7 days ago
SLM–Got a new smartphone for my birthday! My granddaughter is still teaching me how to use it; but I have most of the smart features figured out. I used to have a flip phone, which I loved, but my daughter and granddaughter wouldn’t let me use it in public, so they bought me a smart phone for my birthday last week.
glenn

7 days ago
I say the US send that killer dentist to Zibabwe! let him rot in a hot prison there,the heartless bastard
Beatlex

7 days ago
Congrats glenn! How fun!
AdLib 7 days ago
Beatlex–what a “he-man”, hey? I read that Zimbabwe is wanting to extradite him.
glenn

7 days ago
Beatlex, I say they send the dentist to the front line war against ISIS. See how he likes getting hunted.
AdLib 7 days ago
Michele Bachmann in Sharknado 3 too. She looks awful.
AdLib 7 days ago
Hey peeps!
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
Hey KT!
AdLib 7 days ago
Adlib,really,what a coward
Beatlex

7 days ago
Ad–only if they bait the dentist first. What he did was not hunting; it was a set up.
glenn

7 days ago
Hey KT–how goes it?
glenn

7 days ago
Quick bite for dinner.BRB
Beatlex

7 days ago
Glenn – that sounds great, you’ll love it
sillylittleme

7 days ago
So, KY where are you tonight?
glenn

7 days ago
oops KT
glenn

7 days ago
I think that lion murdering dentist should be thrown, screaming, from a helicopter! But that’s just me!
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
glenn – They can lure the dentist to ISIS with a fake lion costume.
AdLib 7 days ago
Hey KT
sillylittleme

7 days ago
TOO kind KY
Harleigh

7 days ago
Hey glenn, Ad slm, B, Harleigh.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
KT
Harleigh

7 days ago
SLM–I already do. Except for the fact that it’s so much bigger than my flip phone and I have difficulty fitting it into my pocket.
glenn

7 days ago
Did you just confuse me with a jelly?
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
Any truth to the rumor that the dentist is now polling above Trump in the GOP race?
AdLib 7 days ago
Come on now didn’t anyone see “Little Shop of Horrors”? We all know dentists are psychopaths
sillylittleme

7 days ago
Ad–sounds good to me. Or a fake Christian costume; cause he certainly isn’t one!
glenn

7 days ago
FEED ME Seymore!
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
“Feed me, Seymour!”
AdLib 7 days ago
Glenn – I don’t have that problem. You must have a small tush.
sillylittleme

7 days ago
KT – You beat me to it!
AdLib 7 days ago
Maybe we could take that human shitstain and drop in the lion pen of the San Diego zoo?
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
LOL!
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
Is shitstain one word, or two? Anybody?
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
I have a parody on cecil… wait fit it…
Harleigh

7 days ago
KT–I would say one word–just doesn’t sound right as two.
glenn

7 days ago
slm – There it is! Perfect! Be a dentist!
AdLib 7 days ago
Why? The lion was no innocent here. What do you think your beloved ‘Cecil’ the lion was doing all day? He was mainly killing and eating zebras, wildebeest, and buffalo, raping the female lions, and killing off baby lion cubs. Hardly an innocent. As far as I’m concerned, it’s Karma. He got what was coming to him.
Harleigh

7 days ago
Thanks glenn, I agree.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
Harleigh – passing to you, chill. LOL!!
sillylittleme

7 days ago
Yeah, where does he come off doing what lions do?
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
Harleigh–
glenn

7 days ago
toka toka thx slm!
Harleigh

7 days ago
Harleigh – And I have it on good authority that Cecil was using a semi-automatic to kill the wildebeast and zebra. And he killed the buffalo with a grenade launcher. Bastard!
AdLib 7 days ago
Oh, I’m still in Ohio, glenn. For the time being.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
LOL adlib
Harleigh

7 days ago
Well Ad, those high tech bows are just unreliable.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
KT–I agree. After all, it takes about 40 hours for the kill, and even then, you have to waste some bullets.
glenn

7 days ago
Hey Murph!
glenn

7 days ago
KT – No kidding! But grenade launchers are pretty reliable.
AdLib 7 days ago
Greetings, people of the Planet of Points of View.
MurphTheSurf3

7 days ago
Hey Murph!
AdLib 7 days ago
hey murpg
Harleigh

7 days ago
What’s new, Murph?
glenn

7 days ago
Hey Murph
sillylittleme

7 days ago
There was some doosh on Salon yesterday defending this prick, with all her might. She claimed that trophy hunting pays for the conservation of wildlife. Can anybody tell me how subtraction equals addition? Anybody?
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
Murph’s in the house!
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
KT – republican math
sillylittleme

7 days ago
KT–It’s the math republicans and douchebags use to make themselves feel better.
glenn

7 days ago
Ah, that must be it slm.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
Did you see Hillary take down Bush at the National Urban League conference?
AdLib 7 days ago
hello Harleigh, Silly Little Me, Glenn, Ad Lib, Kilgore Trout and Beatlex!Are you all in mourning over the bloodbath at MSNBC?
MurphTheSurf3

7 days ago
Ad – No what did she say?
sillylittleme

7 days ago
Murph – Who’s left? And did we get KO back?
sillylittleme

7 days ago
Murph, I am deeply saddened by the fact that MSBULLSHIT is keeping Chuck Toad.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
COMCAST owns MSNBC so it was expected
Harleigh

7 days ago
Murph–not sure I’d call it a bloodbath, but it certainly will change the “landscape” there. Any word on who will replace those who are leaving?
glenn

7 days ago
That explains a lot Harleigh!
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
KT…Keeping him? THEY ARE EXPANDING MCCAIN’S STEPSON’S ROLE!
MurphTheSurf3

7 days ago
McCain’s stepson! LOL!
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
KT – Only morons who work backwards from a wrong conclusion can do that. There is always some moron(s) out there ready to defend people who do the worst thing, they need the attenion even if it is negative.
AdLib 7 days ago
You mean Chuck Todd, whose job is not to ask tough questions?
glenn

7 days ago
Softball Toad?
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
toddis a not so stealthy bagger
Harleigh

7 days ago
SLM….the “Rev” (although I think he is next) Matthews, Maddow, Hayes, O’Donnell in the late afternoon and evening.
MurphTheSurf3

7 days ago
KT–the toadmaster?
glenn

7 days ago
I can see it now, Trump at bat, it’s the bottom of the 9th, and Toad lobs a soft one, right over the plate!
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
Glenn…I think that Todd, and Williams are going to play a big role.
MurphTheSurf3

7 days ago
KT–And Trump starts at third base, and claims he hit a home run.
glenn

7 days ago
Murph – Getting rid of Ed and The Cycle is just taking out the trash. I like Alex, she’ll stay around. But MSNBC is such garbage on the whole, except Rachel Maddow, not a huge deal. And more Chuck Todd? Those are not three words any viewer has said.
AdLib 7 days ago
Did they also keep Rush Scarborough?
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
Murph – well I can skip Matthews and watch Rachel through Larry
sillylittleme

7 days ago
I like Alex too, and Melissa-Harris Perry!
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
MSNBC started to really suck when Olbermann left. Griffen made sure of that.
Harleigh

7 days ago
Murph–I’m sorry to hear that about Todd. I don’t watch Williams’ show, so don’t know about her.
glenn

7 days ago
Msnbc had to do something,all day and night it was the same stories with different guests
Beatlex

7 days ago
Mathews is just another screecher asshole.
Harleigh

7 days ago
B – that part won’t change
sillylittleme

7 days ago
Ad….Bilart and Roberts are good…..Hayes is a first rate journalist, Maddow is just excellent, and I have warmed up to O’Donnell.
MurphTheSurf3

7 days ago
Harleigh–I loved Olberman’s “Worst Person in the World”. O’Reilly probably holds the record for being named the most!
glenn

7 days ago
Are they still keeping those dreary prison shows on weekends? Man, that is some shitty programming.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
Bildo the klown!
Harleigh

7 days ago
Beatlex – Yep, that was a problem of their own making, they decided to just repeat programming with different hosts and I think they’ll continue to do so under the label of “news”. MSNBC is bound for a big decline in viewership when all the non-Chuck Todd fans don’t tune in.
AdLib 7 days ago
KT–Yup–those prison shows and caught on camera! Never watch MSNBC on weekends!
glenn

7 days ago
O’Donell used to writ for the hit TV show West Wing. Great show.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
Oh man glenn, they are really bad. I think they’re meant to keep the populace scared straight.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
step outta line and don’t follow the “program,” and this is where you’ll end up! Horrible shyte!
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
KT–didn’t know that about O’Donnell. I only catch his show once in a while; but as Beatlex says, his show was just a repeat of Hayes’ and Maddow’s. He had different guests, but same ol, same ol.
glenn

7 days ago
The Saturday and Sunday shows are very interesting because of their depth and guest line up. Both Kornacki and Perry are first rate moderators.
MurphTheSurf3

7 days ago
Murph – I don’t know, I’ve seen Hayes look like a totally out of touch nerd when dealing with people who throw him a curve in interviews he wants to go in a specific direction. Roberts is okay but a happy corporate flak at times on his show.
AdLib 7 days ago
glenn, he asks some pretty good questions. I think he’s more Hardball than Hardball Matthews.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
Murph–I do like Perry. I read her columns on line, but don’t watch her show.
glenn

7 days ago
Murph – personally cn’t stomach Korny, but usually watch MHP. My man likes that show too.
sillylittleme

7 days ago
I dumped my cable a few years ago, and haven’t really regretted it.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
KT–yes, once in a while, O’Donnell does get in a good question.
glenn

7 days ago
the format of picking a topic and have 5 shows in a row on it is awful. sharpton really really sucked.
Harleigh

7 days ago
Think about how many hosts MSNBC has plowed through, including the horrible Ronin Farrow and the usually good Martin Bashir.
AdLib 7 days ago
Ad–IMO, Martin Bashir should still have a show. HIs was a bullshit firing!
glenn

7 days ago
There just isn’t enough going on to justify 24/7 news programs. If you want to call them news.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
The movie “Network,” anybody?
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
Lets face it,none of the networks can do much with the state of affairs in Washington,What a gong show
Beatlex

7 days ago
Bashir was first rate and driven out for a lack of good taste…imagine that. Does anyone know what he is doing now? I can find nothing.
MurphTheSurf3

7 days ago
i liked bashir
Harleigh

7 days ago
Harleigh – That’s what corporate thinking brings you. They list the few topics for the day that they think will get the most attention then hammer them in show after show. Boring.
AdLib 7 days ago
i liked Cenk Yugar, but he just wouldn’t tow the corporate line. That’s why I liked him
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
Beatlex–well, it ought to get interesting with the “debates” coming up. Those republicans just crack me up; they’re so crazy!
glenn

7 days ago
And compare that with Fox News where they just keep adding douches.
AdLib 7 days ago
Hey PPO
sillylittleme

7 days ago
Hey PPO, what’s new?
glenn

7 days ago
KT – You are absolutely right, Network is now reality.
AdLib 7 days ago
What’s funny about the FOX debates is that K-Sick is getting edged out, in his own state.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
I don’t even get Fox since I moved,not that I care,but I liked to laugh at Billo and some of the other clowns!
Beatlex

7 days ago
we need a Palin – Bachmann 2016 ticket… but it would now be to the left of the current klown crop. how is that even fuckin possible. honestly.
Harleigh

7 days ago
KT – And he still won’t but TYT still gets seen
sillylittleme

7 days ago
hey everybody. Shivering today.
pinkpantheroz

7 days ago
Beatlex–I don’t ever watch fox, but I always read about their antics on line.
glenn

7 days ago
The MSNBC weekend programming was the result of NBC wanting to do MS on the cheap…and it showed.
MurphTheSurf3

7 days ago
KT – Now they’re saying that K-Sick will qualify for the debate. I can’t believe all the love MSNBC is throwing at K-Sick, it’s nauseating.
AdLib 7 days ago
PPO – wanna trade? 90s and 90 humidity
sillylittleme

7 days ago
Oh, for sure Ad. Paddy Chaevsky was very prescient.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
Sure is.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
Ad – who is K-sick
sillylittleme

7 days ago
PPO–is it still snowing there?
glenn

7 days ago
I’ll trade the heat, but not the humidity, thanks,SLM!
pinkpantheroz

7 days ago
Forget it Ad
sillylittleme

7 days ago
slm – John Kasich = K-Sick
AdLib 7 days ago
Ad – ya I figured it out. Just a wee bit stoned
sillylittleme

7 days ago
slm, he’s another fanatical RW religious bug a boo.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
Yes glenn,, on the upper slopes of the mountains and in the Snow Country
pinkpantheroz

7 days ago
slm!!!!!!!!!
Harleigh

7 days ago
We will be hosting a live chat for the debate next Thursday. Hope you can all be there!
AdLib 7 days ago
During the debate.
AdLib 7 days ago
Ad–K-sick may be so. However, at least he implemented O’care in his state. You have to give him credit for that.
glenn

7 days ago
PPO – hope you don’t get the 100 feet of snow we got, obvious exaggeration but the piles made it seem that way
sillylittleme

7 days ago
Live chat on the circus. You bet.
MurphTheSurf3

7 days ago
Ad, can you remind us about Thurs? I’d love to be part of that
pinkpantheroz

7 days ago
Ad – sounds like fun, what time?
sillylittleme

7 days ago
K-Sick said he hasn’t read the Iran deal, then went on to tell everybody exactly what was wrong with it. You know, doom and gloom and nuclear proliferation, and all that. Oh Noooooes, mushroom clouds on the horizon.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
PPO – Yep, I will post an article that morning to let everyone know.
AdLib 7 days ago
Ad–I’ll try to be there. What time do the debates start?
glenn

7 days ago
i think i told you all i’m becoming a multi millionaire next week with my popcorn futures right?? lol
Harleigh

7 days ago
slm, I think that boston still has more snow left than we have for our season so far!
pinkpantheroz

7 days ago
Hey PPO! Is Trump a real berk, or what?
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
KT – but deal with climate change, me
sillylittleme

7 days ago
meh
sillylittleme

7 days ago
Harleigh–you and every other Dem who has bought into Orville!
glenn

7 days ago
Hey, KT! Yup, especially about the lactating lady he called ‘disgusting”
pinkpantheroz

7 days ago
Have you all heard that Fox intends to organize the stage such that the persons with the highest ratings will be in the center and then rank them from there to the edge on both sides. Result. Bush and Trump side by side.
MurphTheSurf3

7 days ago
mmmmm popcorn!
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
got that one right glenn!
Harleigh

7 days ago
PPO – I think it was two weeks ago that they announced that the last snow field had melted, snow fields were where they trucked the city’s snow…
sillylittleme

7 days ago
Murph–that should be funny! Bush and Trump side by side.
glenn

7 days ago
Oh that was terrible. Apparently Trump never realized that’s where milk comes from.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
glenn,me too! There is always something stupid going on there
Beatlex

7 days ago
Murph – but who will have the better hair?
sillylittleme

7 days ago
Kt, all his wives gave plastic!
pinkpantheroz

7 days ago
The debate is at 6pm PDT, 9pm EDT.
AdLib 7 days ago
PPO–LOL!
glenn

7 days ago
Mmmmm a silcone treat!
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
I have read that Bush’s people are VERY unhappy with the arrangement as that means Bush will not be able to take the high ground and ignore Trump.
MurphTheSurf3

7 days ago
SLM–I want to hear Trump speak Spanish!
glenn

7 days ago
glenn, all he has to do is put the letter “O’ after everything! EVEYBODY knows that!
pinkpantheroz

7 days ago
Murph–I think Bush’s people are delusional. No one can ignore Trump; he won’t let you!
glenn

7 days ago
He does glenn. “Mexis make chicas do the dirty.”
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
I have also read that one of the biggest concerns is how the moderators will be able to hold Trump to the rules. He makes his “nut” by flouting convention.
MurphTheSurf3

7 days ago
PPO–Oh–that’s right, I forgot my Spanish classes! LOL
glenn

7 days ago
KT–You are really bad!
glenn

7 days ago
Trump is really just a money machine for RNC. I don’t think he is really serious about being prez.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
Glenn – Si
sillylittleme

7 days ago
Murph–who are the moderators?
glenn

7 days ago
Murph, they need an isolation booth with a kill switch on the microphone!
pinkpantheroz

7 days ago
How about Huckabuck threatening to use federal troops to stop abortions? Jade Helm 16?
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
glenn – True, K-Sick started out as a total jerk but after losing in popularity after trying to repeat Scott Walker’s attack on unions, he tacked towards the middle. But he’s insincere.
AdLib 7 days ago
kT – LOL
sillylittleme

7 days ago
KT,he is on the Bronc! and he is going to ride it to death
Beatlex

7 days ago
Yeah B, I’m sure he’s having the time of his life. He’s always been an attention whore. The male version of Sarah Palin.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
Well – it will be interesting to say the least.
sillylittleme

7 days ago
Ad–K-sick is insincere; I agree. But even if you do the right thing for the wrong reasons, you’re still doing the right thing. I would never, ever vote for him or any other republican, but I believe in giving credit where credit is due.
glenn

7 days ago
The 5 p.m. “kids table” debate for the “also there’s”, which will last an hour, will be moderated by Bill Hemmer and Martha MacCallum. The 9 p.m. debate will run about 90 minutes (two hours with commercial breaks and introductions), and be moderated by Bret Baier, Megyn Kelly and Chris Wallace. Read more:

http://www.politico.com/story/2015/07/fox-republican-debate-lowers-threshold-120748.html#ixzz3hWlsI9sL
Fox lowers threshold for early debate
Fox News is opening its 5 p.m. debate to all the announced Republican candidates who fail to make the cut for the Aug. 6 prime-time event, removing a requirement that participants reach at least 1 percent in polling. The change amounts to an insurance policy for candidates who were in danger of being disqualified from the vital first debate based on…

MurphTheSurf3

7 days ago
The loser candidates debate themselves at 5p. EST I think. Real 1%ers. LOL
Harleigh

7 days ago
Naw, K-Sick is a snake. Don’t eat that apple.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
My post came out weird…..The 5 p.m. debate, which will last an hour, will be moderated by Bill Hemmer and Martha MacCallum. The 9 p.m. debate will run about 90 minutes (two hours with commercial breaks and introductions), and be moderated by Bret Baier, Megyn Kelly and Chris Wallace.
MurphTheSurf3

7 days ago
That’s better
MurphTheSurf3

7 days ago
I love that Christie can’t crack the top ten! Looks good on him
Beatlex

7 days ago
Murph – So who gets to eat at the adult table?
sillylittleme

7 days ago
Beatle, Christie is one Big Crack!
MurphTheSurf3

7 days ago
Megyn is beautiful…. but the crap she makes up sure gets her well paid at faux
Harleigh

7 days ago
Christie wants to destroy the pot movement. Down the drain you go fat ass.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
KT–I’m still trying to figure out if that is a parody–sending in troops to stop abortion. What are they going to do? Kill the mothers? BTW, have you read about that poor woman in AL who may have her fetus taken away by the state because she wants an abortion? I think she’s an inmate at one of the prisons.
glenn

7 days ago
KT – Hear, hear!!
sillylittleme

7 days ago
No one’s going to watch the Kid’s Table debate. Those candidates have been de-selected by Fox News. How perverse and corrupted is our political system when a partisan cable news channel picks who can and can’t run?
AdLib 7 days ago
i guess he wants the troops to into abortion clinics with guns blazing. ?
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
life IS sacred, don’t ya know!
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
KT – they’re just pissed that god didn’t give them wombs…
sillylittleme

7 days ago
Ad…and the impotence of the RNC…..Priebus is pissing in his pity pants.
MurphTheSurf3

7 days ago
It will be funny to see Bush and Walker on either side of Trump as he holds court. Like the court jesters.
AdLib 7 days ago
All the GOP candidates are trying to out-Trumpet Trump, and showing themselves for the fools they are.
pinkpantheroz

7 days ago
Ad–so Walker made the “cut”?
glenn

7 days ago
Ad, you know the Trump will engage in constant elbow jabs and digs in both directions.
MurphTheSurf3

7 days ago
Pussy envy?
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
glenn, that a***hole should be GIVEN the Cut!
pinkpantheroz

7 days ago
I can’t decide who’s more dangerous–Walker or Trump.
glenn

7 days ago
Glenn not sure which pole they used for the rankings. They are all scum.
Harleigh

7 days ago
Murph – Yep, isn’t it clear who controls the party? Fox News, not the RNC. How terrible is that for the RNC? They don’t even control their own party anymore (the others in control include The Kochs and other billionaires).
AdLib 7 days ago
PPO–I agree, but I don’t run foxnews, which, lately, is running the republican party.
glenn

7 days ago
Murph – The way Trump gestures, he’ll elbow Bush and Walker every time he talks.
AdLib 7 days ago
I guess, in a way, we should thank Trump. He’s got the rest of the GOPers toosing their dog whistles and showing their asses.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
adlib… adelson
Harleigh

7 days ago
And Fox is owned by Murdoch who belongs to Koch Klub
MurphTheSurf3

7 days ago
Here’s a wager, who here thinks Trump will try to throw everyone a curve and act friendly and thoughtful. That would be the smart play for him, disarming the media and his critics and proposing actual policies. The others would be gobsmacked.
AdLib 7 days ago
I think the debate title and promo is ‘Kochsuckers In Action’.
Harleigh

7 days ago
It has been revealed, through White House records that the real reason Stewart is leaving the Daily Show is because IN FACT, he’s a top CIA official and has a clandestine mission in Uzbeckibeckistan!
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
KT or back to BENGHAZI!!!
Harleigh

7 days ago
Ad….that is not what has attracted his following….he would be smacked down as a sell out….if the media and his critics do not detest every minute of his time on stage, then he will lose steam….HE WILL GO FULL BORE!
MurphTheSurf3

7 days ago
I won’t take that bet, Ad! He’s canny and cunning enough
pinkpantheroz

7 days ago
Jon and Herman Cain! I Spy, 21st century version!
KillgoreTrout

Ad – since I think its all an art school project, it wouldn’t surprise me.

Well murph, lynch mobs react without all the info. This lion killing turd admitted what he did. That lion was far better than the shitheel that murdered him. Just my thoughts.

Funk and Ad….I will vote for whoever the Dems have as their nominee….and frankly everyone running for that honor right now, and I do mean everyone, is a better option than anyone running for the GOP.

Funk – I’m not comfortable because I know she’s bullshitting in the campaign and is a DLCer who will support Wall Street over the 99%. But she will be good on many social issues and would nominate at least a moderate SCOTUS judge. So, she is better than what a Repub would be but not going to be great for Progressives.

Ad….I would accept extradition IF he a case can be made by the government in Africa that would justify it. The man is going to suffer in any case.

Funk – All indications are that Hillary would support the Keystone XL pipeline, would not be strong on supporting financial oversight lawas or pollution laws, she is a hawk on military issues, she is far more secretive, many issues that would come back to make many unhappy.

Sorry, folks, gotta go. Sorry I couldn’t contribute as much as I’d have liked. see you all next week.

Murph – Yep, as long as the law provides for it, and from what I’ve read it should, he should be sent back there to stand trial for poaching illegally. He saw the collar with the tracker and tried to hide it, proof of his knowledge of the crime he committed.

Ad, her foreign policy stances are far more interesting to me than her domestic policies. Because that’s where she has actual power. I don’t see her diverging from the standard schtick much domestically

Hillary refused to state a position on Keystone pipeline. Why would she do that if she flatly opposed it? The Pres has power to approve that.

Night Murph!
AdLib 7 days ago
Funk – Which foreign policy stands of Hillary’s are you referring to?
AdLib 7 days ago
I think she may just be trying to have it both ways. Not uncommon when it comes to politicians.
funksands

7 days ago
Oh, any of them! My first question would be: “Do you support regime change as an official tool of your administration”? What will she do re: Syria? Will she continue the never-ending drone war? Will she toe the line on the Iran deal? etc etc
funksands

7 days ago
Funk – Why would she need to have it both ways if she opposed it and was trying to appeal to Progressives? She doesn’t oppose it, that seems pretty clear. She’s taking lots of contributions from the oil industry and Wall Street firms deeply into energy, those interests mean more to her so she won’t step on their toes. And she’s a corporate supporter, so, not surprising.
AdLib 7 days ago
They don’t call it the silly season for nothing my American friends.They just keep going into sillier places
Beatlex

Because she isn’t just trying to appeal to progressives?
funksands

7 days ago
Funk – Those are great questions. But considering how far from forthright she is, I wouldn’t expect a straight answer from her on that. She is a hawk though and in 2008, talked about how she was ready to bomb Iran.
AdLib 7 days ago
Funk – Exactly! Because she isn’t the “Progressive” she’s pretending to be right now. Just the standard pandering that precedes the shift to the middle after the primaries. Cynical and dishonest IMO.
AdLib 7 days ago
Keystone is almost 100% dead anyway. Alberta’s premier is adamantly opposed to it, which is a kiss of death.
funksands

Ad, you are likely correct, but the Democratic party is made of up of a lot of different voters. Progressives simply make up a portion of it. Obama voters that are self-described moderates (by some counts) may actually outnumber those that self-identify as liberals or progressives.
funksands

7 days ago
Funk – Hope you’re right. Even so, the Repubs will be campaigning on that once the Obama Admin refuses to approve it and if asked, I think Hillary will support it. Will it make a difference? I don’t know. But trustworthiness is Hillary’s biggest weakness and there’s a reason for that.
AdLib 7 days ago
Ad, your last sentence is the most important one I think. Every time she tries to have it both ways I think it adds to the “rep” that the Clintons have.
funksands

7 days ago
Funk – I don’t know how it breaks down but the polls seem to bear out that a majority of Dems support Progressive values…which are really mainstream values. Gay marriage, taxing the wealthy and ending loopholes, gun control, ets., these are popular among all Americans, not just Dems.
AdLib 7 days ago
I’d just suggest that of Hillary does the standard tack to the middle after the primaries, with her trustworthiness so questionable, she could really hurt herself with core Dem voters.
AdLib 7 days ago
And a lot of them support Keystone too. I think its just an example of Hillary trying to have it both ways without having to commit on an issue. This early in the campaign it doesn’t surprise me. Her challenge will be that her opponent is the antithesis of that. She’ll either need to step it up or she’ll look poorly in comparison
funksands

I agree
funksands

Her path to the nomination is pretty simple IMO. Co-op as much of Bernie’s message that she’s comfortable with, don’t do anything stupid and she’ll probably win.

I think though that the cynical aspect of winning mattering more than standing on core principles may not work as well in this current era. Thoough they may not be well informed on the actual issues, I wonder whether the elecotrate has become aware enough of how pols will say anything to pander and win primaries then betray those promises, to not buy into it as much. The success of Bernie and Trump seems to point to voters being fed up with the usual game pols play.
AdLib 7 days ago
And Hillary is as classic a pandering pol as Bush.
AdLib 7 days ago
Ad, I hope you are right. I’m pretty cynical about the electorate.
funksands

I am almost looking forward to the process
funksands

But wouldn’t you agree that the support of a crusty, socialist, unattractive old man instead of Hillary, speaks to that evolution?
AdLib 7 days ago
Bernie shouldn’t be as popular as he is if Hillary’s classic approach to winning an election was so effective in her party.
AdLib 7 days ago
Maybe. This early in the process I don’t believe much of anything. I’m encouraged though.
funksands

I have the advantage I guess of listening to him take questions on almost any topic for an hour a week for the last 5 years. I feel like I know where he stands. That’s a comfort that I don’t feel about almost any other politician.
funksands

I’d say it’s very different with regards to Bernie because the turnouts to his speeches are the biggest of all candidates. You may get a Herman Cain to be at the top of his party’s polls but he never had the commitment and turnout Bernie gets. Bernie has a true constituency loyal and energized by him. I think that’s different than the early leaders in polls.
AdLib 7 days ago
Good point.

100,000 supporters turned out to rally at the same time across the nation, And as far as I know, he doesn’t have the money and organization to make that happen himself.
AdLib 7 days ago
BTW, I’m not committed to supporting Bernie at this point but I am very impressed with how energized his supportes are, compared with the supporters of Hillary and the Repubs.
AdLib 7 days ago
Ad, I get it. 15 months out, all we really have right now is impression and observations.

Yes, we’ll have a live chat during the debate on Thursday night. We’ll open a half hour early, the debate begins at 6:00pm PDT.

Night Ad, thanks for manning the controls tonight.
funksands

Yep, and I’m trying to quantify the depth of support for different candidates this far out. The support for Bernie only grows and his supporters are passionate. Hard to find passionate supporters for most of the Repubs.
