On “SNL” Dana Carvey’s Church Lady Returns To Interview Trump and Cruz

Video of Axl Rose fronting AC/DC last night in Portugal. Meh.

Sounds like Axl Rose fronting AC/DC. Video and audio are completely out of sync but otherwise the quality is good enough for you to see / hear what went down.

If I REALLY wanted to be left ALONE, I wouldn't go to the Kentucky Effing DERBY. Right, Ted?



For a change, Ted Cruz didn't have much to say. Not even a pick for the Kentucky Derby.

Days after suspending his presidential campaign, the Texas senator showed up with his wife at Churchill Downs.

He got off the elevator at The Mansion, the track's most exclusive section near Millionaires Row.

Cruz said he's at the Derby to have a good time, and declined to be interviewed. His wife, Heidi, repeated "no media interviews today, no media interviews today," as the couple ducked through a door, blocked by security guards, into the private club.

Liberal Redneck destroys Ted Cruz for getting beat by ‘carny-handed mango man’ Trump



https://www.rawstory.com/2016/05/watch-liberal-redneck-destroys-ted-cruz-for-getting-beaten-by-carny-handed-mango-man-trump/

Trae Crowder — also known as the “Liberal Redneck” — was back on YouTube Friday, mocking Ted Cruz for getting his butt handed to him by “carny-handed mango man” Donald Trump in the GOP primary.

Crowder mocked the Texas senator who claimed that God himself directed him to run for president — only to fail.

“Guys,” Crowder began. “Stuff like that makes me really want to rethink my stance on God.”

“Because while the thought of Cruz is objectively terrifying,” he continued. “I do love the message this sends to the extreme Christian right which is — y’all have lost! Your guy couldn’t beat a dude who could come out tomorrow and announce Hulk Hogan as his running mate and America would just go, ‘Yeah, that checks out.'”

Describe the first time you connected to the Internet at home. Me? AOL with a dial-up modem.

Bought a Sony PC from Circuit City. Came with AOL bundled. I knew I didn't want AOL but signed up for the free trial until my AT&T could get connected. Thought I was king of the world.

There was no "high speed Internet" for home then. I worked in a tech environment, the people who needed that at home were getting T-1 lines installed.

You?

Maine animal shelter breaks its own rules, lets Gov. Paul LePage adopt dog 1 day "early"

On Tuesday, Maine Gov. Paul LePage posted a photo of the newest member of his family: a Jack Russell terrier mix named Veto—an apparent reference to the combative Republican's record of rejecting legislation.

But for one woman, Veto's adoption was unwelcome news. Heath Arsenault, a victim of sexual assault, told local news outlet NECN she had been hoping to adopt the animal herself as an emotional support dog. She said she was heartbroken when she learned that the shelter had bent the rules to allow the governor to adopt him before he became available to the public.

Unbeknownst to her, LePage had also seen the dog on the Greater Androscoggin Humane Society's website. But unlike Arsenault, who planned to take off of work on Wednesday to ensure she was first in the adoption line, LePage dropped by the shelter a day early and snagged Veto before the general public had an opportunity to do so.

The shelter has since admitted to breaking its own rules by giving LePage a chance to adopt the dog a day earlier than the public.

Voters squashed precious lil' nubbins Jeb!, pissing off Junior and Poppy...BUT...

...there's always an Evil Dick around every corner.



http://www.cnn.com/2016/05/06/politics/dick-cheney-donald-trump/

Washington (CNN)Former Vice President Dick Cheney will support Donald Trump, he told CNN Friday, an important move as the presumptive Republican nominee is encountering intense resistance from senior members of his own party.

Cheney told CNN Special Correspondent Jamie Gangel that he has always supported the GOP nominee and will do so this year as well.

The announcement makes Cheney one of the few Republican Party elders to announce their support of Trump and comes a day after House Speaker Paul Ryan told CNN he is "just not ready" to back Trump.

Former President George W. Bush, who Cheney served, said this week he would skip this summer's Republican convention where Trump will be formally nominated. Former President George H.W. Bush and John McCain and Mitt Romney, the GOP's 2008 and 2012 nominees, also don't plan to attend the convention.

Glenn Beck Explains Why God Must Punish America For Rejecting Ted Cruz

May 7, 2010 - McCain vows to "Complete the Danged Fence." 2016 - McCain whines about Trump.



http://www.rollingstone.com/politics/news/john-mccain-has-a-yuge-donald-trump-problem-20160506

The man who lost to Barack Obama in 2008 had a target on his back, too. John McCain had always styled himself as the maverick of the GOP, willing to buck the party when matters of principle arose.

But McCain's response to his Tea Party primary challenge in 2010 was a massive lurch to the right. He disavowed old stances and even declared he'd never truly been a maverick. And a man who had previously supported comprehensive immigration reform put out a TV ad in which he told a right-wing sheriff he'd "complete the dang fence." The sheriff reassured him, "Senator, you're one of us." Everyone in Arizona knew who "us" was.

***

According to a report in Politico, McCain knows Trump is a problem for his reelection. "If Donald Trump is at the top of the ticket," he told the audience at a private fundraiser, "here in Arizona, with over 30 percent of the vote being the Hispanic vote, no doubt that this may be the race of my life."

He's right about that. But does he know it's his own damn fault? When the Tea Party came with their pitchforks and torches to storm the castle of mainstream Republicanism, career politicians like McCain were awfully quick to embrace the ugliest side of their party.

If Elected, Trump Offers Solemn Vow To Free Prince Albert From Can



CNN New York - Real Estate mogul, reality TV star and presumptive Republican Presidential nominee Donald Trump told reporters today that if elected, a goal he intends to accomplish during his first 100 days in office is to free Prince Albert from his can.

"Time to let him out," Trump insisted. "We don't have Princes in America...well, unless you count that purple whatever guy, but he's the only one I can think of. I'm not in favor of Princes myself, but I think that if one is in a can, the right thing to do is let him out."

When asked if he'd ever met Prince Albert, Trump responded "I think so, yeah. It was before he was in the can. Nice guy. Didn't talk too much. Dressed real sharp. I think he came into Trump Towers Grill for some bangers and mash. Asked him what that was and he told me and I said "No, we don't serve that," and you know, he caused a scene so I had him roughed up a little and escorted from the premises. That was the last time I saw him before, you know, he went in that can."

Asked how he planned to free Prince Albert, Trump replied "I'm gonna put Christie on it. I have to find something to keep him busy and out of my hair. He can be a pain in the ass, loyal, yeah, but so is my Chihuahua."
