Check out this tweet from Christopher Hale who's running for the House(TN)



Great campaign slogan! Oh my god.

One of the most evocative political photographs taken a week before election 1960


The photo is jarring.

An angry Lyndon Johnson, on the steps about to board an airplane, is pointing his finger and angrily shouting. Presidential candidate John Kennedy is a step or two above him, a serious look on his face, and reaching down to Johnson in an effort to cool him down.

American historian Michael Beschloss, who specializes in the U.S. presidency, tweeted that photo on Sunday. He called the photo ďone of the most evocative photographs ever made of American political history.Ē And it was taken this week in 1960, and right here in River City, right here in Amarillo by Globe-News photographer Richard Pipes. Today, itís archived in the Museum of Modern Art in New York.

Just as Kennedy was about to speak on the makeshift platform to a crowd about to hang on his every word, an aircraft taxied not far away. It then revved its engines. That annoyed the crowd, which was waiting for the plane or jet ó itís not clear what it was ó to take off so they could hear Kennedy. But the aircraft never moved. Its engines just roared and roared.

. It was political dirty tricks. The photo showed Johnson wanted to fight somebody. He was embarrassed by Amarillo in his home state. He likely filed that one away.

This seems to be the media's take on Trump last night.


This reporter is rightfully getting slammed in the comments. Trump may have been a little less shouty but he sure as hell wasnít more disciplined.

This is why I think if a smart, competent authoritarian is ever elected, we are sooo fucking screwed.

One of Trump's guests is expected to be Tony Bubolinski


I hate this fucking asshole.



This seems like a problem ( voter intimidation in Florida)


This is why Ratcliffe held that press conference

and didnít take any questions.



The FBI to make an announcement tonight on a major election security issue


Du'ers from Michigan, MSNBC just did a segment on Sen. Peters. Do you think he'll win?

MSNBC interviewed a lady who was voting for Biden but was leaning toward voting for James and would make up her mind on election day. Ugh.
