Open Thread: Chris Christie’s Powerful Comments on Drug Abuse
Chris Christie is not my first choice for 2016, but I have to give credit where it is due. He is a talented politician who excels in handling town hall meetings. He is also an advocate of reforming how we handle drug addiction and those who suffer from it. It appears to be one of the signature issues of his campaign for the Presidency, and | Read More »

Alright everyone, it’s Friday. We’re almost at the end of the week.

Right now, though, it’s close to lunch time if you live on the East Coast, | Read More »
The ‘Anything political besides Hillary Clinton’ Overnight Sunday Open Thread.
Because I can’t imagine that all of you are any less tired of that woman than I am right now. It’s been a horribly slow Sunday in the news, and honestly I will start gibbering at the moon* if I don’t have other news to pontificate about. It’s all no doubt necessary that we have the current tawdry round of stories play out – as | Read More »

The ‘This LA-SEN Runoff race is turning into a bloodbath’ open thread.
The Louisiana Senate race got called three minutes in, which was two minutes too slow. The map looks hysterical. It’s a bad day for Louisiana Democrats, period. Time for the song. Open thread.

Centennial of Britain Entering WWI Open Thread
On August 4, 1914, at 11pm London time (6pm EST here in the United States), the British Parliament’s House of Commons voted to declare war on Germany. The UK’s Telegraph has an excellent series of articles detailing, hour by hour, the events leading up to the declaration. Here is their recounting of what happened today 100 years ago. The decision was not an easy one for | Read More »
Tuesday Night Primaries Open Thread.
Well, there’s Georgia, and Kentucky, and Oregon’s: also, Idaho? – Anyway, here’s a thread for all of those. As usual, AoSHQDD is covering the close ones. Moe Lane PS: Folks? Just… stay frosty, OK?

OPEN THREAD: Mitch McConnell – HARDCORE!!
This morning Team Mitch released a campaign video. The video didn’t address the many betrayals committed by the Senate Minority Leader, as detailed by Erick this morning. Instead it attempted to paint McConnell as working hard for America. But what it really did is give off the feeling that I shouldn’t trust this guy to run the carpool for school.
Our own Ben Howe was taken a bit aback by the horribleness of the Team Mitch ad and decided to improve upon it greatly.
