Mother Jones: Bernie Sanders Is Poised to Make a Very Weird Kind of History Tonight

Bernie Sanders Is Poised to Make a Very Weird Kind of History Tonight
Clinton County is Sanders country.


Bernie Sanders can make history in Tuesday night's Kentucky Democratic primary. No, he can't clinch the Democratic presidential nomination, nor is he likely to score a big win that convinces super-delegates to switch their allegiances en masse. But if he can beat Hillary Clinton in Kentucky's Clinton County, he will have defeated Clinton in all nine of the Clinton Counties in the United States.

The nine counties are named for two different men from New York state—George Clinton, who was vice president to both Thomas Jefferson and James Madison, and former Gov. Dewitt Clinton, the planner of the Erie Canal. So it makes sense that the various counties reflect the Yankee migration into the Midwest (or old Northwest) or are in places that might have benefited from the canal's economic boom. More to the point, people in the South, where Clinton has dominated, tended not to name their counties after New York politicians.

Still, Kentucky's Clinton County could put the streak in jeopardy. It is similar in demographics to two bordering counties in Tennessee, Pickett County and Clay County, which Clinton won handily in that state's Super Tuesday primary. There is only one Sanders County in the United States, named for the former Montana senator Wilbur Fisk Sanders. Clinton will have her chance at payback when Montana votes on June 7th.

Seriously, Nancy Pelosi...WTF? No, I'm serious. WTF? "The Republican Party is the Grand Old Party"

House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi says she has urged Republican colleagues in Congress to "take back your party" from "anti-government ideologues" in their ranks.

"As I view the Republicans in Congress, I don't see them as a real reflection of many Republicans in our country," Pelosi said in an interview Wednesday with NPR's Steve Inskeep on Capitol Hill. "The Republican Party is the Grand Old Party. It's made enormous contributions to the success of our country. And it is a party that has embraced its leadership role when it has had the majority or the White House. ... While we may argue about the size of government, the Republican Party has not been a party that says, 'I want to destroy government.' "


She's right...they just love government to pieces.

"Ted Cruz finally released his grip on the Senate floor after more than 21 hours of speaking about the need to defund Obamacare.

The Texas Republican seized control of the Senate floor on Tuesday about 2:42 p.m. vowing to "speak in support of defunding Obamacare until I am no longer able to stand." Cruz could have spoken all the way up to a 1 p.m. procedural vote on moving spending bill forward, but he relented at noon.".* John Iadarola (TYT University, The Common Room) breaks it down on The Young Turks.

Woman Says She Was Called "Disgusting" After Being Mistaken for Transgender in Walmart Bathroom

Woman Says She Was Called "Disgusting" After Being Mistaken for Transgender in Walmart Bathroom


A video posted by a Connecticut woman named Aimee Toms is making headlines, after she says a stranger verbally attacked her inside a Walmart bathroom on Friday after mistaking her for being transgender.

Toms, who identifies as cisgender—a term for people who identify with the sex they were assigned at birth—said she was washing her hands, when the woman called her "disgusting" and attempted to order her out of bathroom, the Connecticut Post reports.

Confused by the sudden harsh words directed at her, Toms insisted that in fact she did belong there.

"At first I was like, 'Does she think I work in a different store and I shouldn't be in this bathroom?'" Toms explains in the video. "So I said 'Yes, I do.'"

Trump's agenda: "Nothing unites the party quite like castigating the Clintons."

Donald J. Trump plans to throw Bill Clinton’s infidelities in Hillary Clinton’s face on live television during the presidential debates this fall, questioning whether she enabled his behavior and sought to discredit the women involved.

Drawing on psychological warfare tactics that Mr. Trump used to defeat “Lyin’ Ted” Cruz, “Little Marco” Rubio and “Low-Energy” Jeb Bush in the Republican primaries, the Trump campaign is mapping out character attacks on the Clintons to try to increase their negative poll ratings and bait them into making political mistakes, according to interviews with Mr. Trump and his advisers.

Another goal is to win over skeptical Republicans, since nothing unites the party quite like castigating the Clintons. Attacking them could also deflect attention from Mr. Trump’s vulnerabilities, such as his treatment of women, some Trump allies say.

For Mrs. Clinton, the coming battle is something of a paradox. She has decades of experience and qualifications, but it may not be merit that wins her the presidency — it may be how she handles the humiliations inflicted by Mr. Trump.


3 charged after drunken spree kills rare Death Valley fish


Three men face federal charges of killing an endangered species after police say their drunken skinny-dipping killed a rare fish at Devils Hole in Death Valley National Park last month.

Based on interviews with the suspects and an investigation of the crime scene, the Nye County Sheriff's Office alleges that the threesome were out drinking and hunting rabbits when they came to Devils Hole. After shooting an electronic sensor, damaging two surveillance cameras and ramming two gates protecting the off-limits area, at least one of the men took off his clothes and went in the water of Devils Hole.

"The suspect(s) in the water stomped around the shelf area of the critical ecosystem before swimming around the deeper water, leaving behind a pair of dirty underwear when finished," the sheriff's office said in a press release.

Beer cans and vomit were also found at the scene.

Scarborough defends Trump because women have kissed him on the lips and he didn't like it

After reading through the entire lengthy article, Scarborough said he only found two examples of bad behavior on Trump’s part. The first one was when Trump met a young beauty pageant contestant for the first time and greeted her by kissing her directly on the lips.

Scarborough, however, didn’t seem to think this was so bad.

“I will tell you, that’s not a pleasant thing,” he said. “[But] in the thousands and thousands and thousands of receptions I’ve had before, people have come up, women have come up, of all ages, and kissed me on the lips. I don’t like it, I wish they wouldn’t have, but I wouldn’t run to The New York Times.”

Second, Scarborough made light of the story told in the Times about Trump asking a then-26-year-old model to try on a bathing suit for him within minutes of meeting her at one of his pool parties. The woman said that after she tried on the bikini, Trump “brought me out to the pool and said, ‘That is a stunning Trump girl, isn’t it?'”


Life lessons from Ted Cruz. Losing in Presidentin' is like losing in football or a card game, but...

NO TRUTH to rumor of "It's Beginning To Look A Lot Like Mistress" as Trump/Gingrich campaign song.

Who starts these rumors anyway?

Ben Carson confirms that YES, boys and girls...the Donald IS considering Palin for VP. USA! USA!


Ben Carson, the neurosurgeon turned presidential candidate turned unfiltered pitchman for Donald Trump and now part of the presumptive nominee’s vice presidential search committee, sat in the back of a Town Car with his wife, Candy, on his way to a televised interview. He had just explained to the reporter riding along that he wanted no role in a Trump administration when news arrived of a new poll naming him as the best-liked of a list of potential running mates.

“Who else was on the list?” he asked quietly, maintaining his usual inscrutable calm. The most favorably regarded contenders after himself, he was told, were John Kasich, Marco Rubio, Ted Cruz, Sarah Palin and Chris Christie.

“Those are all people on our list,” he said.

“Well, not you,” Candy reminded him sharply.
