You should see the Orrin Hatch twitter page!


Post after post after post after post following his whiny sniveling about how Democrats are so unfair!!! Post after post after post after post says "Merrick Garland"!

It's a truly fun and energizing read!

Oh Excellent!

I can't figure out imgur.com anymore, since they changed it.

I have some great photos from the LA March earlier this month. The signs alone made it worthwhile, but being part of that staggeringly large crowd was even better. (Biggest in the country/world! 750-thousand people, and ZERO arrests!)

LOVE this! Dump and Putz.

Or, to be thematically correct, Dump and Piss maybe?

I think it's worthwhile to remember that this is now TWO republi-CON "Presidents" IN A ROW who took the White House by cheating. Remember Selection 2000?

These assholes are so counter to EVERYTHING we believe in that the only way they can win the big one anymore is by cheating. That's the only way they can win what they've won in the House and Senate and at the state level. By rigging the game (gerrymandering districts).

The ONLY way they can win anymore is by cheating.

Let's keep that in mind, and remind everyone we know.

Welcome to DU, Idoru!

Yeah, I won't believe it til I see it from something more reputable than a Murdock rag.

That said...

I STILL think it's a good idea to let these folks know we loyal viewers will NOT ACCEPT a Pox-Noise-Lite, and we will leave if we see that happening. You touch Joy Reid at your OWN job's peril.

DO INDEED go ahead and register your complaint. This could be a planted trial balloon to gauge public opinion. If they start getting lots of shit for this, then perhaps it will slow them down. They can't afford to lose any viewers.

Welcome to DU, jayschool2013!

"jayschool"? Journalism school perhaps? If so, where'd you study? Retired b'cast journalist here. Back when I was starting, there were almost literally none of 'em. Just a bare handful - University of Missouri, for example. College radio got me started but after I got hired, I learned on the job.

I'd challenge him on his religion. TO HIS FACE.

If you're such a devoted Catholic, dude, have you EVER EVEN CONSIDERED the Gospel of Matthew as part of your "governing" "principles"?

Matthew 25:45 - it's the "least of these" bit.

The Sheep and the Goats
…44And they too will reply, ‘Lord, when did we see You hungry or thirsty or a stranger or naked or sick or in prison, and did not minister to You?’ 45Then the King will answer, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did not do for one of the least of these, you did not do for Me.’ 46And they will go away into eternal punishment, but the righteous into eternal life.”…


I'd shove this in his face if I had half a chance. You're NO Catholic, dude. Your policies AND your damnable, detestable, deplorable political party are specifically designed to screw "the least of these." So quit trying to wrap yourself around the Cross and play holy and faithful. You are an apostate.

a person who renounces a religious or political belief or principle.
synonyms: dissenter, defector, deserter, traitor, backslider, turncoat; More

Welcome to DU, lambchopp591

Yep. I guess that's because we're not the deplorables.

Our signs are not only correctly spelled, they're witty as hell!

I saw one at the L.A. Women's March the weekend before last, that said "We're Not Ovary-acting!" that included a drawing of a woman's reproductive system.
