Political Red Rover

When I was a kid we played the game Red Rover where two lines of kids faced each other and yelled, "Red Rover, Red Rover send Billy or Sally, someone from the other side over. I don't really remember how you won the game. My point is if I'm standing in my line of Americans facing the Repug lineup for President and playing Red Rover and said, Red Stater, Red Stater send over your biggest Democrat hater," Who would they send?

I think it would be either Carnival Cruise or Huckleberry.

Cruz wacko: Obama ruined the country and Christmas by keeping Santa out of school


snip: “I don’t like Obama no more,” the woman explained. “He’s ruined our country, ruined Christmas. He’s let the Muslims in. We can’t say that word, we’ve got to be ashamed of it — and we’re not ashamed people. We’re a proud people, and we’re gonna take our country back. So watch out, Obama! We’re coming.”

The reporter asked the woman to explain how Obama had ruined Christmas.

“He’s scared the little children,” she said. “They’re not allowed to have Santa Claus in the schools where, you know, it might offend the Muslims. But what about us?”

Her rantings about Christmas give me Claustrophobia. Cruz is a smarmy and lethal candidate.

Woman Said she Redirected Tornado to Another Neighborhood When God Gave her authority over winds

Texas woman says her Christian faith gave her the power to redirect a tornado away from her home.

Sabrina Lowe, of Rowlett, said 10 family members were visiting her apartment Saturday when they heard the distinctive train noise of the approaching tornado, reported NPR.

“We actually went outside and started commanding the winds, because God had given us authority over the winds, the airways,” Lowe said.

Just wow.

Humor for the day

An office manager comes into the office of her boss and says, "There's a guy out in the lobby who says you owe him money, but he didn't give his name."
The office manager says, "What does he look like?"
She says, "He looks like you ought to pay him."

Faux News Upset that President Obama

Acknowledged the Unique Circumstances of Being the First African-American President
Fox host Steve Doocy and legal analyst Peter Johnson Jr. accused President Obama of "saying that people don't like him him because they're racist" during a December 21 interview with NPR's Steve Inskeep. After playing a clip of Obama saying there are "absolutely" "certain circumstances around being the first African-American president that might not have confronted a previous president," Johnson said that Obama is "totally, totally wrong," that racism "isn't an explanation or an excuse," and that "[h]e shouldn't resort to that."

President Obama merely whispers about Repug dog whistles and Faux News foghorns sound off.

Trump and Putin

After basking in the "great honor" of Russian President Vladimir Putin’s praise, Republican front-runner Donald Trump on Sunday defended Putin against longstanding accusations that his regime has carried out murders of journalists who oppose him.

Given Trump's political bro love for Putin perhaps this tale is appropriate.

Upon waking after the above mentioned interview Trump is visited by the ghost of Stalin. Trump sees him and asks what is Stalin doing here. Stalin replies that if Trump wants the Presidency he must do these things: continue to insult all his adversaries, denigrate defenseless refugees, intimidate and insult the press. And, once Trump is President he must plunder the 99% to fill the coffers his fellow plutocrats, ignore Congress and the press, use drone strikes to kill ISIS and ISIS innocent family members, and paint the Oval Office blue.

Trump ponders this advice from Stalin and replies: "Why blue for the Oval Office?"

Trump is a dangerous amoral clown.
