I just … I don’t even … wut? The above video shows Democrat State Senator Gene Jeffress, who is running for Congress in Arkansas against Republican Tom Cotton, answering a question about healthcare. The first weird thing Jeffress did was get down on his knees in front of a woman, like maybe he was going to whisper the secret 11 herbs and spices to her. The second weird thing he did was assert that Germany has provided for the healthcare of their citizens for “centuries”. No wait, sorry. The first weird thing he did was to choose to wear that suit.
Then he told a story. A story about a woman who stood up and told him that “Senator, I don’t want to pay for no more n*gger babies.” About which our courageous civil rights leader stated “You know what that really sounds to me like? Racism.”
Wow, you work that one out on your own there, Sherlock? Suddenly, I’m super impressed with you as a champion of diversity!! Your obviously fake story about an obviously racist person to whom you responded in the most obviously easy way has convinced me to give you money!!! WE ARE ALL CREAM COLORED SUIT WEARERS TODAY.
Seriously. There are like 8 people in the room and this guy is working it like a stripper with daddy issues. I’m not sure he’s trying to raise campaign money, I think maybe he just wanted lunch. What was his next “campaign stop”, a highway exit where he offered to wash people’s windows for change?
There are always over-the-top, ridiculous politicians. But Foghorn Leghorn here has perfected the art. Dear Arkansas, You. Deserve. Better.

In essence, as Weigel notes, | Read More »
Share on Facebook 1 1 SHARES ‘Chris Christie is loser’ was my alternate title. Not a quote, but it is the basic message from Rush Limbaugh on his show today: Obama does know what he is doing. After a weekend of petty Republican back-stabbing, it’s about time someone showed the sense and backbone to say it. It’s a four minute clip so far too much | Read More »
Share on Facebook 1 1 SHARES I get that New Hampshire is not exactly a bastion of conservative thought. A Republican hasn’t held the state in the general election in almost 16 years. I also get that John Kasich has not pretended to be anything like what is traditionally called a conservative. In fact, he claims to be some kind of “new” conservative which, if | Read More »
Share on Facebook 1 1 SHARES The Ted Cruz campaign has been rocked by scandal and rumors over the last month. I’m not talking about Carsongate, which is a nothingburger, or the even bigger nothingburger that is the “birther” controversy. I’m talking about the ugly allegations, probably circulated by the Trump campaign, that Ted Cruz likes Nickelback. I had always assumed that this scurrilous accusation | Read More »
