Used to sing to the mountains

The more the campaign is about NDAs and tax returns, the more politics is trivialized and the more ridiculous Democrats look.

Populism will be the reason why we can’t have a nice Democratic President.

Tis weird that a candidate like Buttigieg, who has no apparent path to winning the nomination, is under such vicious attack from surrogates of other candidates who also lack a clear path to victory (i.e., Sanders and Warren). I suppose their outrage needed a new outlet after Beto quit.

It’s trendy to call Buttigieg a racist these days. So I wonder what to call this:

I think that having so many Southern states go first kind of distorts reality,” Sanders said during a taping of “The Nightly Show” on Comedy Central earlier this month …

As the field is weeded perhaps Klobuchar will attract more media attention. She doesn’t cry about lack of attention like Castro and Booker.

Darling Nikki Haley is definitely running and has just locked down the vote of the Confederacy.

Clinton wouldn’t have cut food stamps. But Berniebros/brosettes said there was no difference between Clinton and Trump.

So much for their political wisdom!

Pelosi puts her boots on the necks of Kremlin-affiliated Republicans.

Pence misses his old names: Son of perdition. Little horn! Most unclean!

Homeland is basically the Trump Russia/Ukrainegate + Tulsi Gabbard.

Bad company

Pressley is the smartest Squadie.

Who cares about Gabbard now besides her Novosibirsk constituents?

There’s no worse place than Alabama. Unless it’s Mississippi.

At least the family of Warren Harding is pleased with the Trump presidency. Ukrainegate and Russiagate leave Teapot Dome in the dust.

It is shocking to learn Mike Pence works with a woman who is not his wife.

The way to undermine Bloomberg is to point to his shameless party-hopping, from one political bed to another, to further his own ends.

Like Trump.

Yet journalists think Bloomberg is concerned with something besides himself.

Forget the White Knight narrative. It’s been shattered by a confrontation with reality.

Class envy of class enemies is the engine of class struggles.

I live for my dream and a pocket full of gold

The Rapture won’t make poor people richer. Mike Pence won’t tell you that, though.

Methodism is backsliding into spiritual backwardness.

Isn’t Glenn Greenwald a Fox News contributor now?

Good news: this is last time Trump will have the freedom to attend CPAC.

Fact checking a born liar is like Sisyphus rolling a greased rock.

Trump is Melania’s anchor baby daddy.

Anti-vaxx nutters are also swivel-eyed national populists.

Good news: this is the last time Bernie Sanders will run for president.

Great divide: revisited

That smug MAGAboy could be your son or your brother. It could be Squi.

New video footage of the MAGAmob looks like a trailer for a Lord of the Flies remake.

The harassment of the Native American gent counts as community service or “civic engagement” for Catholic school kids.

The MAGAboy hired a PR firm, which skillfully employed the MAGA play book: deny, expand attack, blame media, repeat.

Swastika, Klan 700 tc bed sheet, and MAGAcap: emblems of conservative thought.

Pence and Mother are dump truck Christians (i.e., what’s left of Christianity after one dumps all the morality out of it).

What a terrible mob lawyer Giuliani is.

Kamala Harris declared her candidacy for POTUS. It will be interesting to see how Berniebros play this. With Clinton, they fell back on misogyny. With Harris, will they dare use race? How far will they go for the sake of Sanders’ “revolution”?

RE the Sorkin-AOC kerfuffle: responding to every criticism is something a young person would do.

If you have to ask

The silly Trumpification of America continues, c/o Sepp Gulati.

Five year old President Trump demands a Congressional investigation of Tappgate and a bowl of pistachio ice cream.

Up at 5am, listening to Phil Collins, is enough to make anyone tweet crazy stuff.

Oklahoma was the “wife beater state” long before any Muslims arrived.

Re Mike Pence and private email hypocrisy: convenience store Christians always congregate near the skin mags.

Republican convention, Act 3

Running commentary:

Sith lords make way for the orcs.

A former astronaut is speaking about space exploration to people who are anti-science.

I remember when Scott Walker quit the primary campaign, he urged the other candidates to unite against Trump.

Little Marco endorses Trump!

There’s Lucifer in the flesh. Canada’s Ted Cruz.

Weird. Cruz criticizes “government decrees,” yet praises GITMO, which was established by a government decree.

Cruz: Freedom means the religious freedom to enact bigoted laws.

This convention does put the theory of evolution into question.

The odor of sulfur is filling the arena at the moment.

Old “Country First” signs from the McCain/Palin era have come out.

No endorsement. Booing! Perfect!!!

Fox News is trashing Cruz for failing to endorse Trump.

Newt is good at bringing the fear.

Poor Newt was rushed to end his speech because Pence has now been pushed into irrelevance as 11pm EST approaches.

Mike Pence introduces himself: Christian. Conservative. Republican.

But not American.

The contrast of the Trump and Pence families is striking. Thrift store versus Fifth Avenue.

God can heal our land. Elect Trump. Makes sense.

Donald couldn’t help himself, he had to rise up out of his pit and step on Pence’s one moment in the sun.

It’s over!

UK: Why is anyone so eager to hang on to Mr Corbyn? It’s self-evident he’ll never be PM. Symbolic politics (his specialty) are fine during a Sunday street protest, but should not be confused with the politics of winning elections. However, it appears he’s the first sinking ship that rats prefer to go down with into the deep of political irrelevance.

US: Mr Pence is a lightweight, anti-gay religious bigot. In backwards states, where Trump is likely to win anyway, he’ll be unnecessary political furniture. However, in moderate to fully rational states, he’ll stand as a talisman of right-wing lunacy, guaranteeing a record thumping for the clown at the top of the Republican ticket.
