AdLib On March - 4 - 2016
Vox Populi, our live chat on the week’s events, begins tonight at 7:00pm PST. Hope to see you then!
AdLib 7 days ago
Don’t forget to say “Hi!” or “Dumpf Drumpf!” when you arrive!
AdLib 7 days ago
Hi, Ad! Dumpf Drumpf! Sounds like my late dog!
pinkpantheroz

7 days ago
It’s like a dog only dumb.
AdLib 7 days ago
dumber!
pinkpantheroz

7 days ago
Or should I say “Dumbf!”
AdLib 7 days ago
Can you believe that debate last night?
AdLib 7 days ago
Well, the GOP ( Gorillas Ogling Penises) have really stepped on their collective cranks this week ( except for Drumpf, whose isn’t big enough!)
pinkpantheroz

7 days ago
Well put, PPO!
AdLib 7 days ago
No reasonable person can see a President in any of these Repubs.
AdLib 7 days ago
That’s the conundrum, Ad. Where have all the reasonable folk gone? Mass migration to Canada? Aussies just can’t believe what they’re seeing.
pinkpantheroz

7 days ago
No one saw Trump’s popularity coming and my bet is no one sees his crashing popularity coming in a GE.
AdLib 7 days ago
He may very well crash, but then which of the other conmen will get the nod? And will the Dems GOTV? that’s my biggest worry.
pinkpantheroz

7 days ago
PPO – You know my motto, Trump winning 40% of the GOP’s 24% of voters means he’s only goot 10% of American voters supporting him. It’s just blown out of proportion by the MSM (just like Trump’s “member”).
AdLib 7 days ago
PPO – No, I said in the GE (General Election). Trump will win the GOP nom I’ll bet but oonce he has to appear on the national stage against a serious candidate and people have to actually consider what it would mean to have him as President, he will go down in the poolls big time.
AdLib 7 days ago
I agree Ad, He always thinks things are bigger than they really are. But he’s been getting yuuuuge numbers of previously lazy voters to turn out. Danger for the DNC
pinkpantheroz

7 days ago
10% of voters is all he’s getting right now and a majority of Repubs are voting in record numbers against him!
AdLib 7 days ago
Hey comrades!
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
yes, but those figures are split too amy ways. At Least Carson’s now gone
pinkpantheroz

7 days ago
Trump has the allegience of the hard core racists, he’s not going to find enough of them to win a GE.
AdLib 7 days ago
Hey, KT!
pinkpantheroz

7 days ago
What’s up P?
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
Hey KT! Still getting over the insanity of the debate last night?
AdLib 7 days ago
the ‘My Dick’s bigger than yours’ debate
pinkpantheroz

7 days ago
Hey Ad. I just couldn’t subject myself to yet another schoolyard pissing contest.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
I did watch some highlights (if you could call them that) today.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
PPO – I coould have written that in the past as a satire but it would have been low brow. But to see that’s what the GOP has come to? I am getting a lot of satisfaction watching the GOP Elite whoo created this Frankenstein candidate and suppoorters, moaning that the end is near for the GOP.
AdLib 7 days ago
Kt you missed a great vox while it was going on. we had a few old hands join in who haven’t been around for a while
pinkpantheroz

7 days ago
That’s about it P. A real schlong waving contest.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
Damn. I just really was not in the mood for another side show. Oh well.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
BTW has anyone figured out who ‘won’?
pinkpantheroz

7 days ago
KT – It was the worst yet, made the GOP and all the candidates look like juveniles and morons. Not to mention bald face liars. It was worth watching for that.
AdLib 7 days ago
KT – Yep, AlphaBitch popped by!
AdLib 7 days ago
Oh, I’m sure there was some entertainment value, here, but I just wasn’t in the mood to actually watch this time.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
AB is a rare appearance. Always a pleasant one.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
Kt you sure would have had to mix Micardis with your popcorn
pinkpantheroz

7 days ago
PPO – I don’t think it matters who wins GOP debates. That lying sack of manure Kasich kind of got the win from the MSM for his fake compassionate conservative act. But the base hates him.
AdLib 7 days ago
I would have needed an extra large cannabis brownie.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
KT – That debate was more like a bad acid trip.
AdLib 7 days ago
The real debates are coming soon. I can’t wait to see one these republican yahoos debate Bernie, or Hillary.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
Was it the Brown acid Ad? Never eat the Brown acid.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
KT – Same here! Just mentioned above that when Trump is put on stage with a grown up, he will look so small and crash in the polls.
AdLib 7 days ago
KT – Now you tell me! Nice demon unicorn you’re riding, though.
AdLib 7 days ago
I wonder if this scandal about Trump University will hurt him in the polls. Probably not.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
Thanks, I a got him from a Pashtoon hippie in exchange for some nice flowers, wink, wink!
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
KT – What the MSM doesn’t care to explain to the nation is that there are two different constituencies that act differently that will be voting on Trump. The low brow bigotted morons vote in the GOP primary for him, the rest of American votes in the GE and unlike his minions, all these kinds of things matter to the non-cultists.
AdLib 7 days ago
Will FLipper’s outburst have any effect?
pinkpantheroz

7 days ago
Cool, KT. He’s awesome, especially when he expands and swallows the moon!
AdLib 7 days ago
PPO – You mean Mittens?
AdLib 7 days ago
I sure hope you’re right, Ad. I tend to agree. I really don’t think Trump can win a general election. Even FOX fans are getting tired of his bullshit. I think last night really turned some of them off.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
Yup!
pinkpantheroz

7 days ago
I taught him how to do that. Many moons ago, an old Indian yogi showed me how it’s done. You wouldn’t believe how tricky it can be!
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
KT – Count on it. Trump is a big fish in the little GOP goldfish bowl but when he has to swim in a real pond, he’ll be eaten for lunch by Bernie or Hillary.
AdLib 7 days ago
KT – And it makes him “poop” rainbows!
AdLib 7 days ago
I can’t wait to watch that. It will be sooo satisfying.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
KT, RF Dude and Agrippa were also here
pinkpantheroz

7 days ago
And they smell of varied colors.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
RF Dude? That IS a rare appearance. I guess they had to find mental sanctuary someplace.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
KT – It’s coming. People get so caught up in the moment, many Dems are worried but I’m not. I can see what’s coming when Drumpf has to go on a natioonal stage with his sideshow act…he’ll always be a sideshow performer and he’ll prove it then.
AdLib 7 days ago
I know Bernie, nor Hillary will take the bait, from Trump. His reality TV tactics won’t fly with either Bernie or Hillary.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
Ad, maybe, but doesn’t it show the weakness and cowardiness of the other candidates who swore to vote for him?
pinkpantheroz

7 days ago
Is Trump going to talk about penis size against Hillary? See, that crap just won’t play outside oof the primary.
AdLib 7 days ago
Hillary would turn him into a eunuch, in no time.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
PPO – Absolutely. It’s actually kind of funny how cowardly the oothers look after howling about how he will destroy their party and the country unless he’s stopped…but they’ll support him if he’s the nominee. So afraid of being attacked as disloyal, they instead look like liars and cowards.
AdLib 7 days ago
Ad, she’ll throw her Uterus at him. I believe it’s in a drawer somewhere.
pinkpantheroz

7 days ago
I guess Megyn Kelly did a little of Tim Russert last night, and nailed Drumpf pretty bad.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
Bernie would take him apart piece by piece. Hillary would slice him with a million cuts and he’d just fall apart.
AdLib 7 days ago
LOL P! Hey, it is uterUS, not uterYOU!
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
There is no “I” in “uterUS”.
AdLib 7 days ago
Well, there was a long time ago…
AdLib 7 days ago
Damn straight!
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
KT, I agree. For once, Fox actually did something right, apart from letting Drumpf constantly overtalk everyone else without censure. Drumpf will now boycott Fox, until next time of course
pinkpantheroz

7 days ago
Ad
pinkpantheroz

7 days ago
I think he was scared by Kelly. He wasn’t near as cocky as the last time she was a moderator.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
She was, as the folksy folks say, “loaded for bear.”
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
Kudos for her sticking it to him.
pinkpantheroz

7 days ago
It is also funny that Fox’s image has taken a big hit amongst Repubs and they’re so adversarial against their own party’s front runner. I do prefer Trump to win the nom than have a contested convention, the GOP is torn apart either way but I want Trump as the face (or ass) of the GOP. They won’t shake that for decades.
AdLib 7 days ago
I agree P.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
He has trouble with silly things like facts.
pinkpantheroz

7 days ago
That’s true Ad. It’s going to take a lot, just to hold the party together. This is why I want the dems to win by the largest landslide in history.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
Consider the GOP’s image when it comes to real and possible Presidential tickets over the last decade: Bush, Palin, Romney, Trump. If that dooesn’t scare a normal person away from the GOP, I don’t know what would.
AdLib 7 days ago
Mark Shields and David Brooks had a good discussion on PBS News. Trump is too far ahead for negative news to topple him before the convention.
pinkpantheroz

7 days ago
I still think there is some real dirt on Trump, that’s just not being used…yet.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
PPO – It should be a given at this point that the 10% oof voters whoo are committed to them are invulnerable to facts or truth. They are Trump Cultists who will never be moved.
AdLib 7 days ago
Ad, don’t forget ‘Crash” MCain!
pinkpantheroz

7 days ago
They’re the same idjits who supported W, not matter what W did. About 25% of republican voters.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
KT – Some Dem operative said that only about 10% of the dirt on Trump has even been brought up. There’s of course a mountain of terrible Trump stuff out there (and his hiding his tax returns is no doubt connected).
AdLib 7 days ago
i love that name, Crash McCain. Sounds like the leading man in a sleazy romance novel!
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
Oh yeah, Drumpf got a little upset when asked about his tax returns.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
PPO – McCain was a bland loser but not as outrageous as his VP. Remember how unapologetically racist she and her rallies were? The GOP should just get it over with and hand out KKK hoods and sheets at their rallies.
AdLib 7 days ago
Really, all the Dems need to do is show clips of Trump trashtalking about other GOP people like McCain to put their own people off him
pinkpantheroz

7 days ago
Trump’s rallies are even worse than Mama Grizzly’s were. There’s actual violence at some of his rallies. Hell, he encourages it.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
Well, is it a hoax or was the knife in the OJ Simpson case really found?
pinkpantheroz

7 days ago
You know the Dems are gathering all kinds of dirt on Trump and keeping it under wraps until the GE. Bernie doesn’t have any dirt of any consequence and Hillary has been exposed for everything she did do and lots of things that she didn’t. There is no new dirt on the Dems.
AdLib 7 days ago
P, it was “a” knife, it hasn’t been determined yet, if it was used in the killings. It may very well have been used. Why would someone bury a knife in the yard?
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
Ad, yes. We know all about whitewateremailbenghazilibyaguttingWhiteHouseGiftsGate!
pinkpantheroz

7 days ago
PPO – Yep, the Dems need to cut two types of ads, one where he attacks McCain, Bush, Romney, etc.. to discourage Repubs and one where he attacks Latinos, Women, Blacks, Muslims, and wants to bomb innocent children and women related to terrorists for the Dems to get energized. Trump has sunk himself already.
AdLib 7 days ago
KT simple, a gardener could have lost it.
pinkpantheroz

7 days ago
Show a clip of Drumpf saying we should kill the families of terrorists.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
True P, but buried? I’m not sure how it was found.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
This OJ knife thing is total bullshit. MSM bait that they swallowed whole. The knife is a small one, nothing close to what OJ used. Yet today they spent hours of airtime with pointless speculation and rerunning OJ foootage. Our MSM is the worst.
AdLib 7 days ago
Good evening, all. I’m a little late tonight. How is everyone?
glenn

7 days ago
KT, surely the cops would have dug up the entire garden looking earlier on?
pinkpantheroz

7 days ago
Hey glenn!
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
Hey glenn! Doing well, and you?
AdLib 7 days ago
hi glenn!
pinkpantheroz

7 days ago
Jake, this is Chinatown!
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
Hey KT, Ad, PPO–what are we discussing tonight?
glenn

7 days ago
glenn the dick-sizing contest, of course
pinkpantheroz

7 days ago
KT – Exactly! All the horrible things Trump has said in the primary that don’t affect his cult followers will bury him in a GE with sane voters.
AdLib 7 days ago
Anything and everything glenn. Mainly Drumpf and last night’s roadside attraction.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
BRB
pinkpantheroz

7 days ago
And how Trump is doomed to lose yuugely in a GE where what he says will affect voters.
AdLib 7 days ago
It sure will Ad. I firmly believe that the majority of the American people aren’t as ignorant or hateful as one might gather from watching Trump supporters.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
OMG–what is wrong with the drumpf? That is a rhetorical question, of course.
glenn

7 days ago
He was born with a tiny wee wee, glenn!
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
The GOP Estab knows it too, they know that he’ll bomb big in the GE and pull down Repubs all across the country. That’s why I want Trump to be the nom, he could be the key to Dems taking back The Senate AND The House! And a number of seats in many states!
AdLib 7 days ago
Ad–what I really “liked” about last week is all the repubs attacking him; yet they’ll “support” him “if” he becomes the nominee. Then, what’s the sense in attacking him, except to give Dems great ads for the GE.
glenn

7 days ago
I bet the GOP tries to go for a brokered convention. They definitely don’t want Drumpf to be the nominee.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
Well glenn, these folks aren’t all that smart.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
KT–Since I’m not a male, does that really affect your self-esteem? Just askin’, as they say!
glenn

7 days ago
Trump’s negatives across all Americans is 60%! That’s unheard of, noo candidate can win with negs that high…and getting higher each month!
AdLib 7 days ago
Not MINE! HAHAHAHA!
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
but yeah, some guys get pretty self conscious about it.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
Ad–Glad to hear that the drumpf’s negatives are that high.
glenn

7 days ago
glenn – And it shows that Repubs put party and power first, above the country and principle. The GOP is the last refuge of scoundrels.
AdLib 7 days ago
They always end up over-compensating in some other area of their lives.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
glenn: http://www.gallup.com/opinion/polling-matters/188936/trump-negative-image.aspx

Trump’s Negative Image
Donald Trump currently receives a 60% unfavorable rating from Americans — a higher unfavorable than any other candidate running, and higher than any major-party candidate in elect…

AdLib 7 days ago
KT–Sorry, I wasn’t trying to be personal, just curious if it really does affect one’s self-esteem.
glenn

7 days ago
I know glenn, I was just being silly.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
KT – There’s a reason Trump has focused his whole life on erecting very tall buildings.
AdLib 7 days ago
KT–you mean over-compensating with a big mouth instead of a big ….?
glenn

7 days ago
Ad, there used to be a televangelist in Ohio, named Rex…something or other. He built a big monolith in his hometown that people called, Rex’s Erection!
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
It can manifest in many ways glenn, but having a big mouth is a common one.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
Meanwhile, the FBI seems very serious in coming to a conclusion on Hillary’s server ASAP. Good news for her today that it was verified her server was not attacked oor accessed. So much for the main problem. I think they’ll find any “classified” emails were not classified at the time she sent them.
AdLib 7 days ago
Being overly macho is another good indicator. Like the ammo-sexuals on the right.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
KT–There used to be a business in Ft. Pierce, FL that sold construction cranes and their billboards said, “Home of the high erections.” Got everyone’s attention!
glenn

7 days ago
KT – I think I heard about that!
AdLib 7 days ago
Ah, the power of advertising.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
Ad–Finally, some closure on the goddamn emails! Of course, we’ll still hear about them, foxsocallednews will still lie about them, and life will go on as usual.
glenn

7 days ago
You know, there may indeed be something about men who want to be tyrants: http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/europe/germany/12168314/Hitler-had-a-micropenis-as-well-as-just-one-testicle-historians-claim.html

Hitler ‘had tiny deformed penis’ as well as just one testicle, historians claim
Hitler suffered from a condition called hypospadias which left him with an abnormally small manhood, according to historians Jonathan Mayo and Emma Craigie

AdLib 7 days ago
Ad–I read similar articles about Hitler’s tiny “manhood” too. Boy! Did he overcompensate!
glenn

7 days ago
i’ve heard that about old Adolf. He wasn’t known for being a lady’s man.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
glenn – Yep, that won’t stop Fox, Repubs and Trump from dissing Hillary over the emails, they’ll claim the FBI covered it up but for the rest of Americans, it will be meaningless as repeating “Benghazi” 1,000 times.
AdLib 7 days ago
He was just one spooky character, all around.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
Ad–did you actually watch the debate live last night? I never watch them live; can’t stand it; I just watch the clips afterwards. Anyway, was it as bad as everyone says?
glenn

7 days ago
Colin Powell said he basically did the same thing Hillary did. Do we see anybody going after him? Of course not.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
glenn – Yes, we hosted a live chat here during the debate and had quite a turnout. Keeps me sane, don’t think I could watch a Repub debate by myself without punching a hole in the tv!
AdLib 7 days ago
KT–C’mon, you know IOIYAR!
glenn

7 days ago
True dat!
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
KT – Repubs just stick their fingers in their ears and say “Nah-nah-nah-nah!” when you explain Colin Powell did the same.
AdLib 7 days ago
Ad–I guess that’s the only way to watch them! You are a brave man!
glenn

7 days ago
Yep, that’s pretty much they’re reaction to a host of truths.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
Ad–and what Bill O’Reilly? Was he drunk afterwards?
glenn

7 days ago
glenn – You should join us here next time! Despite the lunacy in the debate, the sanity here is very reaffirming.
AdLib 7 days ago
I think he may have been, glenn. That, or maybe some Xanax or something like it. Maybe both.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
O’Reilly was a goofball before the debate as well. I think everyone at Fox is getting drunk every day now that Trump is destroying their party.
AdLib 7 days ago
Yeah, I forgot, yesterday, how much fun it can be to live “tweet,” these debates. Lot’s of manna from the comedy gods.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
KT – It’s literally like an SNL sketch…that goes on for months!
AdLib 7 days ago
Ad–I may join you all for the next one; I usually forget when they’re on.
glenn

7 days ago
Somebody has got to make a new video, with Hitler in his bunker.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
glenn – I usually ut up a post on the day of a debate to remind folks about the live chat, keep an eye open for email notifications. Be great to have you here for them!
AdLib 7 days ago
i forget the name of the movie, but the scenes with Adolph freaking out have been used before for political satire. Some pretty funny ones, too.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
Ad–even SNL couldn’t come up with some of the stuff that comes out of these debates. I see rubio says that the flint water crisis is the fault of Democrats, or President Obama, or some such dumb thing. And, oh, I loved luntz’s focus group after the debate; those people were pissed off!
glenn

7 days ago
KT – Here’s one you probably haven’t seen: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ajRRbnerug8

AdLib 7 days ago
Yeah, I saw that today, glenn. They all seemed to be fooled by Kasich, though. One woman said he was the only adult in the room. I guess when compared to the others, he was.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
“Shut up, Hitler!”
AdLib 7 days ago
Ad–do you think the RNC has their debates on Thursday nights so the Daily Show and Larry Willmore can’t react until the following Monday? Given that those two shows don’t film on Fridays.
glenn

7 days ago
KT–Yeah, kasich may be the only adult in the room; just look how he destroyed his state using his adult “powers”.
glenn

7 days ago
glenn – Yes, Rubioo is such a fool, congratulating Rick Snyder on how he handled the poisoning of an entire city…he poisoned!
AdLib 7 days ago
KT – But it’s all moot when it comes to Kasich’s BS act, Trump supporters are dedicated to him alone.
AdLib 7 days ago
Sorry, guys, gotta head off to do stuff. See you all next week.
pinkpantheroz

7 days ago
G’night PPO–have a good week! Cheerio!
glenn

7 days ago
Kasich said he would put boots on the ground in Iraq and Syria and Libya. What a fucking neo-con.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
Later P.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
glenn – Interesting theory though DWS hides Dem debates better by holding them on Sunday nights of holiday weekends.
AdLib 7 days ago
Seeya PPO!
AdLib 7 days ago
DWS has got to go. She is not progressive in any way I can see.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
Kasich has a lot of dirt hiding beneath his BS facade but thankfully, Trump will win and we won’t need to expose the Repub nom for being horrible.
AdLib 7 days ago
KT–Haven’t all the repubs said they would put boots on the ground wherever they can? Have you or Ad ever read any of the essays on Stonekettle Station? They’re written by an ex-military man who actually planned ops, and he writes scathing essays against all of these neocons!
glenn

7 days ago
Kasich doesn’t have a chance. He’s just not crazy enough. He’s a snake, but he’s not crazy.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
For anyone who doesn’t know how evil DWS is: http://www.vox.com/2016/3/2/11148586/debbie-wasserman-schultz-warren

The head of the Democratic Party is trying to weaken Sen. Warren’s consumer protection agency
Democratic National Committee Chair Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz faces fresh criticism over her position.

AdLib 7 days ago
i saw that earlier today, and it made me sick. What the hell is wrong with the DNC?
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
KT–I agree. I want Howard Dean back again. He was passionate, smart, and worked hard on the Dem “ground game”. DWS doesn’t seem to be doing anything; except for scheduling debates when the fewest people will watch. The ironic thing about that is that the Dem debates are worth watching!
glenn

7 days ago
glenn – Good to know, thanks for the heads up on Stonekettle.
AdLib 7 days ago
I do think that the people who are really interested in watching the debates, do so. No matter what night it may be on.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
Ad–it’s really worth checking it out. He doesn’t write every day; but when he does; he’s absolutely spot on!
glenn

7 days ago
We need a new Progressive Dem running the DNC…like…oh…someone whose name rhymes with “Belizibeth Blorren”?
AdLib 7 days ago
KT – The numbers don’t lie, the Dem debates during the week get many more viewers than those on the weekend.
AdLib 7 days ago
Can you imagine, Dean was basically finished by an enthusiastic “yalp,” but Trump can talk about killing Muslim families, calling Mexicans rapists and drug dealers…ad nauseum, and nobody condemns him for it.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
Ad–hmm–I wonder who that could be? BTW, speaking of rhyming, I was watching the clip of Colbert talking about trump and his “manhood” and he said he reminded him of what guys do in a bar that rhymes with “clock block”. What does that man?
glenn

7 days ago
Well, I still think that if someone really wants to watch, they will, unless they’re working, or don’t have cable or internet.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
KT – It is ridiculous that Dean was so attacked for that and his candidacy crippled. But Dems don’t play that game, we wouldn’t accept one of our candidates acting like Trump. We require adults as noms.
AdLib 7 days ago
Cock block is when someone says or does something that ruins a guy’s shot at getting laid.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
KT–and trump yells, too! Not to mention he man never completes a sentence; and the phrases he does say he repeat at least twice before he goes on! What a putz! I just cannot imagine this man representing the USA at any international gathering. It makes me shudder!
glenn

7 days ago
KT–Thanks for the info. I guess it’s another “guy” think that I missed!
glenn

7 days ago
Oh no doubt, but got nowhere near as insane as Drumpf. This was basically my point.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
Yeah. pretty much a guy thing, glenn. I’m sure some gals probably use the expression too. It’s a crazy new millenium.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
Maddow and Hayes on MSNBC have been focusing on how violent Trump rallies are getting, aiming that at protesters. They do seem to forget how Palin’s crowds were violent and racist too.
AdLib 7 days ago
KT–Agreed. I love Howard Dean! He cracks me up and I used to love to watch him on the “pundits” shows. He was always articulate and knew his stuff!
glenn

7 days ago
Ad, all that’s missing are the brown shirts and Swastikas. Oh and the jack boots. Gotta have jack boots.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
Yeah, me too glenn. I used to like watching him on Real Time, with Bill Maher.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
DWS has harmed the Dem Party the whole time she’s been chairmen. We had our worst off year loss under her in 2014. And she rigged the primaries for Hillary, campaigns for banks against the Consumer Protection agency, she is toxic.
AdLib 7 days ago
Ad–read an article the other day about how before every trump rally there is an announcement that tells the audience to identify the protestors and to go stand by them so they can point them out to security. I kid you not; there was an audio of it. I’m pretty sure it was real and not an Onion satire.
glenn

7 days ago
KT – They identified one of the men shoving a black woman violently, he’s a KKK guy. That should be pushed to the public, Trump appeals to the KKK so he should be rejected by everyone else.
AdLib 7 days ago
KT–how else can you pull yourself up by your boot straps if you don’t have any jack boots? Or is that by your jock strap? (Sorry, couldn’t resist, given the last repub debate).
glenn

7 days ago
DWS is also very much against legal cannabis, of any kind, medical or recreational. There is absolutely no place for someone with that unscientific, unenlightened mind set, for any progressive government.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
I think the jock straps are somehow connected to the jack boots.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
Ad–they also identified a young man who was in the deferred enlistment program Actions have consquences!

KT–That connection must be why they have their heads up their asses all the time!
glenn

Yeah, I saw that disgusting scene. It wouldn’t surprise me to learn that Drumpf actually pays guys like that to police his rallies.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
That could explain it glenn!
KillgoreTrout

I think it’s only a matter of time before there’s an assault on a protester at a Nazi…er…Trump rally.
AdLib 7 days ago
I gotta give that lady credit. What she did was very courageous.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
Ad–no problem, Ad. The drumpf has already said he’d pay the legal fees of the assualter!
glenn

7 days ago
I’m really surprised it hasn’t happened yet. There could even be a shooting at one of his rallies. There certainly is enough hatred for that to happen.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
KT–I agree; it looked like she was being shoved around like a bowling pin!
glenn

7 days ago
she had more balls than all those macho men put together.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
KT–I don’t think weapons are allowed at the drumpf rallies.
glenn

7 days ago
KT–you got it!
glenn

Racists are always cowards.
KillgoreTrout

funk is in da house!
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
howdy
funksands

7 days ago
glenn – Yeah, I saw that. Trump will get sued by the racists that attack protesters when he doesn’t pay their legal bills.
AdLib 7 days ago
KT–Of course they are; why else would you need to put someone else down. If you’re secure in your own skin, you can accept differences!
glenn

Hey there, Funk!
AdLib 7 days ago
hi ad
funksands

7 days ago
That woman was very brave indeed, all by herself in a sea of hateful racists. Wow.
AdLib 7 days ago
They’re never so brave when alone. They need the herd to to find their balls.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
Hey Funk, how are you? That being said, I’m going to say hello and goodbye. Time for me to call it a night. Take care guys and have a good week. Thanks for enlightening me about the “guy things.” G’night.
glenn

7 days ago
right Ad. That takes guts.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
HA! No problem glenn. Always glad to enlighten!
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
Glenn, so soon?
funksands

7 days ago
Sorry, Funk, soccer tomorrow!
glenn

7 days ago
Go get em! Score a goal for me.
funksands

Great debate last night. Thoroughly entertaining.
funksands

7 days ago
Seeya glenn! Have fun!
AdLib 7 days ago
Not me; my granddaughter!
glenn

7 days ago
Hey funk, glad to see you’re getting a good edumacation!
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
Funk – You mean the conversation here was great, the debate was awful.
AdLib 7 days ago
I learned so much about the nation last night.
funksands

7 days ago
Ad, ???? Are you kidding me? Best debate of the year!!
funksands

7 days ago
you mean a nation with an embarrassing number of idiots?
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
For democrats, funk!
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
Apparently even some conservatives found last night embarrassing. I didn’t think that happened anymore
funksands

7 days ago
Yeah funk. They aren’t happy with their front runner, or his trailing minions.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
Funk – Well…all depends on the perspective. For Dems wanting to see the Repubs self-destruct, it was fantastic. For Americans who don’t want the nation to look awful to the world, not as good.
AdLib 7 days ago
the smarter repubs are watching their beloved party disintegrate before their eyes. Well, so sad, too bad.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
I just want to know who run Bartertown?
funksands

7 days ago
Ad, I’m convinced we can’t avoid lancing this boil. It must happen.
funksands

7 days ago
The lobbyists, for sure.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
KT, for sure. They created this mess. You gotta live with it.
funksands

7 days ago
Pottery Barn rules right?
funksands

7 days ago
Yep. They loosened the monster’s straps and let him off the table.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
Lets get this damn thing out in the open, drain the wound and then we can all heal
funksands

7 days ago
Funk – I do agree. I wrote an article on this years ago, about how the best thing for Dems is to have Repubs elect and nominate their loons so America can be fully convinced that Repubs are not worth voting for. And in the process, blow up the GOP as it currently is, run by a minority of extremists.
AdLib 7 days ago
You break it, you own it. Or, for lovers of ancient Greek Drama, “Euripedies, you pay for desies.”
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
KT, way to class up the joint. Can you give that to me in greek please?
funksands

7 days ago
no speaka de English!
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
Ad, you were prescient.
funksands

7 days ago
It is schadenfreude, I’m loving the whole GOP Estab writing articles and making quotes about how their party is blowing up.
AdLib 7 days ago
Any predictions how long Bernie can string this thing out?
funksands

7 days ago
Ad, the hand-wrining and cloth-rending is pretty sweet
funksands

7 days ago
The Fall of the Moron Empire?
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
HA!
funksands

7 days ago
Funk – Actually, just frustration that too many Americans bought into the Repub BS in 2010, affirmed to me that Americans have to really be made to suffer by Repubs before they learn to stop believing them.
AdLib 7 days ago
Yeah, thanks for the reminder…
funksands

7 days ago
We come to mock Ceasar, not to bury him!
KillgoreTrout

Bernie will stay in the race until the end, I think. It’s rigged that they put the Southern states forst, where the more conservative and establishment candidate will win delegates…in states that are irrelevant in the GE because they are deep red states no Dem will carry. It rigs the race to be front loaded against the more Progressive candidate. So Bernie has great prospects if he stays in.
AdLib 7 days ago
You think so? Wow! that would be great. I know he’ll be in at least until April 27th. He’s got a favorable stretch of states coming up. I don’t think Hillary or her team will dare start chirping about “party unity” until at least then.
funksands

7 days ago
you know, a genuine revolution may be happening before our very eyes. Bernie could still pull of the nomination. That would truly be revolutionary.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
KT, that would be really cool. His hill is very steep, but get enough momentum and you can push even a large rock up the hill
funksands

7 days ago
Funk – We don’t vote her in CA until June! And as a very progressive state with the most delegates, Bernie could pick up a huge haul here. Also, just to be safe in the unlikely case the FBI does find something in the server case, Bernie needs to stay in the race.
AdLib 7 days ago
I wish they would both start talking about party unity. I would love to hear them both say they will support the winner of the nomination, no matter which one of them wins it.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
KT, Bernie’s already said it many times. He gets irritated by the constant question, but he’s said publicly he’ll throw in for Hillary. And Hillary? Well we already know she’s capable of supporting someone who beats her.
funksands

7 days ago
I think that would go a long way to putting a stop to all this dem infighting. It’s not a good thing.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
KT – Historically, it’s too early for discussions of party unity. That doesn’t happen until there’s a likely or de facto nominee emerging. Hillary’s not there yet.
AdLib 7 days ago
Good point funk.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
KT, it was way way worse in 2008. Way worse. Social media magnifies it, but its not nearly as acrimonious as 7 years ago.
funksands

7 days ago
I would still love to see Hillary say she’d vote for Bernie if he won the nom. It would really help her, in the end. It certainly wouldn’t hurt, especially among those who call her a neo-con and republican.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
Funk – That is true, the division in the Dem party was far worse in 2008 when the Hillary PUMAs were swearing they would vote for McCain if Hillary wasn’t the nom.
AdLib 7 days ago
It still worries me funk. Never underestimate the dem’s talent for snatching defeat from the jaws of victory.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
KT, THAT is very true
funksands

7 days ago
Ad, even AFTER Obama got nominated they were promising to derail his candidacy
funksands

7 days ago
KT – I think Hillary has said that but it was said diplomatically, as Bernie has been about that towards Hillary. It’s okay for them to be competing against each other. Yes, there is a bit of hostility between their supporters but when it is Trump vs. the Dem nom, all that will change and as in 2008, Dems will come together. If Hillary does win, she’ll need to make a big gesture to Bernie to help solve that. As Obama did towards Hillary.
AdLib 7 days ago
Funk – Exactly but what it revealed was that PUMAs were a very tiny group of nasty, vindictive people. They made no difference in the election even though many claimed to keep their promises and didn’t support Obama.
AdLib 7 days ago
What irritates the shit out of me is when I see someone say if it’s not Bernie, they’ll write him in, or vote green. There’s more of those idjits out there than I would ever care to see. I sure hope they are fringe.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
KT – That’s a small but vocal sliver of Bernie supporters…and in some cases, Repubs trying to sew division in Dems.
AdLib 7 days ago
sow
AdLib 7 days ago
KT, me too. Presidential races are not meant for that type of purity. That’s what the damn primaries are for!!! Purity and Platform. Once the nomination happens, its a comparative vote between the two major candidates.
funksands

7 days ago
Just as the Hillary supporters dissing Bernie supporters is a small but vocal sliver of her supporters.
AdLib 7 days ago
Oh, there are always the paid trolls, that’s for sure. But I don’t see them actually voting for Bernie or Hillary.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
Ad. All true. I’m pretty involved locally with our precinct caucus and its split almost 50/50 between Hillary and Bernie. Not one of these people I’ve talked to has said anything like that.
funksands

7 days ago
KT – No but they impersonate Bernie and Hillary supporters and vow not to support the other to cause division.
AdLib 7 days ago
oh I get that funk, but I still think it would strengthen party unity for Hillary and Bernie to be respectful of each other, which, they basically have been, so far.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
I sure think they have.
funksands

7 days ago
No doubt Ad.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
They’re going to attract voters to them if they keep it up. But it is so so hard not to go negative.
funksands

7 days ago
I mean super-negative
funksands

7 days ago
Funk – Same here, there are exceptions but 99% of the Dems I know would vote Dem to keep Trump out no matter how unhappy they might be with their candidate not getting the nom. Either you vote as a Progressive or you’re not one.
AdLib 7 days ago
Compared to the right, Hillary and Bernie are having a love affair.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
They should kiss on stage at the next debate. That would be nice.
funksands

7 days ago
Then Trump and Cruz could kiss and then the planet would heal
funksands

7 days ago
Ad, you probably don’t frequent the lower info discussion sites. Like Yahoo, for instance, or even Salon.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
You think my wife was serious about leaving the country if Romney gets elected….Trump will chase her out for sure.
funksands

7 days ago
I’ve had my issues with some of what has gone on between Hillary and Bernie but it is what happens in political campaigns, not beyond the pale. Whereas in the GOP, it is just disgusting poo flinging.
AdLib 7 days ago
Naw, just a nice friendly handshake and a smile.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
Boring
funksands

Primates flinging feces.
KillgoreTrout

Monkeys are no doubt watching the GOP debates and turning away in disgust.

Animals don’t act like that. Only humans do.

i like a little boring, now and then. Especially when there is a smidgeon of intelligence and civility.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
Or learning how to improve their aim, Ad.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
Well guys, it’s been good, as always. See ya later.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
I have to head to. Have a great weekend. Stay Klassy!
funksands

7 days ago
KT – Actually, I do. I see comments on Yahoo, HP, Politico, Salon, Slate, The Hill, etc. and what I see for the most part are Repub trolls pretending to be Bernie and Hillary supporters trying to cause trouble. I also see those who are beligerent but it’s the same couple of commenters repeating their BS under their own or other accounts. I don’t see it legit in most cases.
AdLib 7 days ago
Seeya Funk!
