And Then You Have This Idiot

Jesus christ:

Democratic Sen. Joe Manchin called for a new “war on drugs” Tuesday to combat the opioid crisis striking his state of West Virginia, eagerly adopting the language of the now much-criticized Nixon-era push to curb illicit substance use.
“We need to declare a war on drugs,” Manchin told CNN’s Jake Tapper on “The Lead” when asked what President-elect Donald Trump should do to combat the situation.

And maybe a slogan! Like, say… “JUST SAY NO!.” And commercials… I have an idea! An egg in a frying pan representing your brain on drugs. And maybe we can DARE our kids to not do drugs. We should probably gut the bill of rights to fight this war. And mandatory minimums.

Also was a fan of when he said when he was a kid, they didn’t have this kind of problem with these drugs. Oxycontin was introduced in 1996, when Senator Manchin was 39.

But he’s a real American, because he ended the interview wishing Jake Tapper a Merry Christmas.

Jill Stein- Grifter, Idiot, or Attention Seeking Diva?


I’ll take all three:

Jill Stein, having spent the entire election telling us all that Hillary Clinton was a mass murderer who would be worse than Trump has apparently had a change of heart, or wants more attention, or just wants to raise a ton of money she won’t refund when the states won’t or don’t do the recount.

If you want to know why no one takes the green party seriously despite aligning with them on many issues (or more accurately, them aligning with us on many issues since they haven’t done jack shit), this is why.

In related news, I am also raising money for a recount. Just click on the paypal link above and I will make sure I send it right away to my fucking bloodsucking plumber and electrician the appropriate states.

Then Why Did You Run for President You Moron?

My head hurts:

Ben Carson rejected a role in President-elect Donald Trump’s cabinet, The Hill reported on Tuesday morning. According to the retired neurosurgeon and former Republican primary candidate’s close friend and manager Armstrong Williams, “Dr. Carson was never offered a specific position [in the administration], but everything was open to him.” Ultimately, Williams said, “Dr. Carson feels he has no government experience, he’s never run a federal agency. The last thing he would want to do was take a position that could cripple the presidency.”

Carson knows the real money is in Wingnut Welfare.

Republican Youth Outreach Continues

And what is it with this Beyonce and Jay Z, amirite? This hip-hop stuff. I don’t get it:


In his defense, this is kind of how I feel about speedwalking. I mean, are they walking? Are they running? What’s going on with it?

Breitbart and Stein.

Armchair Jacobins

This is kind of hilarious. I followed Corey Robin on FB because I like to see what other people think (a good thing), and sometimes I politely commented. I just got unfriended after this exchange:




That’s just sad and funny on so many levels. And I didn’t change my initial remarks- I initially assumed he was smart enough to go from point a to point b. He wasn’t, so I extended them.

I’ve seen this over and over again with these guys. Zaid Jilani, Freddie de Boer, that Bruenig fellow.


In all honesty, what did I say or do that was so offensive here?
