Clown Bus Update

Gradually moving from that triple decker…

To a Short Bus. Another one bites the dust!



Bobby Jindal Drops Out Of The 2016 Presidential Race

Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal (R) ended his presidential campaign on Tuesday.

“I’ve come to the realization that this is not my time, so I’ve come here to announce that I am suspending my campaign for president of the United States,” he told Fox News’ Bret Baier.

Jindal, who entered the presidential race in June, has remained near the back of the Republican pack since then. In recent months, his persistently low polling numbers relegated him to the smaller televised events (AKA the KIddie Table) that preceded each of the main GOP debates.

Republicans to Jindal, “We already got our Minority…It ain’t you.”

Trump Compares Carson to a “Pathological Child Molester”

Wow! Things are heating up on the Clown Bus. Guess they are going to have to rearrange the seats so that some of the clowns don’t sit next to each other!

Trump Re-enacts Carson’s Alleged Stabbing, Says He’ll ‘Bomb The S**t Out Of’ ISIS

Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump launched a scathing attack on his most significant rival, retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson, telling an audience in Iowa on Thursday (November 12) that Carson described himself as “pathological” in his memoir.

Trump, who addressed supporters at an election rally in the key primary state, said the man with whom he has recently traded the lead in national polls was an “enigma”.

“Carson’s an enigma. He wrote a book, and he’s doing great in Iowa. He’s second in the polls. With all these professional politicians, I’m first, Carson’s second, and I don’t understand it, I really don’t understand it. Because he wrote a book and in the book he said terrible things about himself. He said that he’s pathological and that he’s got basically pathological disease. Now he wrote this, I guess before he was running for office or thought that he was running for office, and I don’t want a person that’s got pathological disease. I don’t want it,” said Trump.

In his autobiography, “Gifted Hands”, Carson describes himself as a troubled youth with a temper that led him to attack several of his friends and even his mother, before he turned his life around.

In Iowa on Thursday Trump compared people who are “pathological” to child molesters.

“If you’re pathological there’s no cure for that folks. And I did one of the shows today, and I don’t to say what I said but I’ll tell you anyway. I said that if you’re a child molester, a sick puppy, you’re a child molester, there’s no cure for that. There’s only one cure, we don’t to talk about that cure. That’s the ultimate cure. No there’s two, there’s death and there’s the other thing. But if you’re a child molester there’s no cure, they can’t stop you. Pathological, there’s no cure. Now he said he was pathological, okay,” he said.

Trump also questioned the veracity of an incident from his Carson’s youth in which he claimed that he attempted to stab a friend, but that his knife broke on this friend’s belt buckle.

“Now here’s the beauty of all – he took a knife and he went after a friend and he lunged, he lunged that knife into the stomach of his friends, but low and behold it hit the belt, it hit the belt, and the knife broke. Give me a break, give me a break, give me a break,” he said.

Democrat Bus Update — Lincoln Chafee Drops Out


Lincoln Chafee Drops Out Of The Democratic Presidential Primary

Former Rhode Island Gov. Lincoln Chafee is dropping out of the 2016 Democratic primary.

Chafee’s campaign announced the news in a press release on Friday. He announced the news himself while speaking at the Democratic National Committee’s Women’s Leadership Forum Friday morning.

“After much thought I have decided to end my campaign for president today,” Chafee said.

Chafee, who also served as a U.S. senator and the mayor of Warwick, Rhode Island,announced his presidential campaign in June, jumping in the Democratic primary race behind former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, former Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley and Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders. Formerly a Republican, Chafee switched his party affiliation to Democrat in 2013.

Chafee was appointed to the Senate in 1999 to replace his father, who died in office. He was elected to a full term in the Senate in 2000. He was the only Republican in the Senate to vote against the Iraq War, a fact he used against Clinton throughout the primary.

Cornel West Introduces Bernie Sanders at Benedict College

Cornel West steps in for Bernie –

Bernie Sanders and the Black Vote

COLUMBIA, S.C. — Democratic presidential hopeful Senator Bernie Sanders spoke Saturday to a half-empty gymnasium at Benedict College in South Carolina. The school is historically black, but the crowd appeared to be largely white.

This underscores the severe challenge facing the Sanders campaign: African-American voters have yet to fully connect to the man and the message.

An August Gallup Poll found that Hillary Clinton’s favorability among African-Americans was 80 percent, while Sanders’s was 23 percent. Two-thirds of blacks were unfamiliar with Sanders. This could pose a problem after the contests in overwhelmingly white Iowa and New Hampshire, where he has surged to tie or best Clinton, give way to contests in Southern states with much more sizable black populations.

South Carolina will be the first test. According to The New York Times, 55 percent of South Carolina Democratic primary voters were black in 2008. Yet current polls show Clinton with a massive lead over Sanders in the state. And those polls show Vice President Joe Biden leading Sanders, even though Biden has yet to announce whether he’ll run. That’s why it’s important not only for Sanders to spend more time in the state, but also to pick a venue like Benedict College.

But appearing at the college, a favorite speaking spot for Democratic primary candidates trying to boost their black vote in the state, is by no means a sure path to victory. Bill Bradley spoke there in 2000 when running against Al Gore. Gore crushed Bradley with 92 percent of the caucus vote. Carol Moseley Braun announced her candidacy there in 2003but had to withdraw before the primary in the state. Al Sharpton and Wesley Clark spoke at the school in 2004, and both lost the state. In 2008, Clinton visited the school the day before the primary. She only won one county in the state.

Sanders is hoping for better….

President Obama – About that Dogcatcher Thing…


The primary results in West Virginia yesterday were not good. A convicted felon serving time in jail got 41% of the vote!

While it isn’t time yet to circle the wagons…

I do think it is (long) past time to start hanging some foot up Republican derriere.

You need to do 3 things to get the Moderate and Progressive Dems to turn out and vote:

  1. Get the rhetorical Louisville Slugger out of the closet and apply it liberally to Republicans every time you speak from now until the election.
  2. Turn Harry Reid loose to exercise the “Nuclear Option” on baseless filibustering by the Reprobates. Get those Judges appointed immediately.
  3. Make it very clear to the electorate that simply electing you to office isn’t enough. They need to get behind their local Democrat politicians to throw the scumbags out – else watch their states suffer as Wisconsin has.

No matter how intransigent and crooked the Republicans are – YOU are the man in charge, and one seen as having the responsibility ultimately to make the system work. The General gets the blame for losing the war – not the moron soldiers who loaded cases of liquor instead of artillery shells in their trucks.

Harry Truman faced the same issue – as did FDR.

There are some folks in this world you just can’t reason with other than at the receiving end of a baseball bat.

Ouch! Obama loses 41 percent of W.Va. primary vote to federal inmate.

Inmate Keith Judd

In an embarrassment to President Obama, Federal Inmate No. 11593-051 – otherwise known as Keith Judd – won 10 counties and 41 percent of the vote in West Virginia’s Democratic presidential primary Tuesday.

Mr. Judd is incarcerated at the Federal Correctional Institution in TexarkanaTexas, where he is serving a 210-month sentence for extortion, according to TheCharleston Gazette. Judd had paid the $2,500 filing fee and submitted a notarized “certificate of announcement” to appear on the ballot.

He is even qualified to have a delegate at theDemocratic National Convention, because he won at least 15 percent of vote. However, no one has stepped forward to fill that role.

But those are just details. The Republicans are having a field day with this slap at the president. Mr. Obama is deeply unpopular in West Virginia and was already certain to lose the small mountainous state in November. But the fact that enough people bothered to turn out in an uncontested primary to register a protest against the incumbent is telling.

“Just how unpopular does someone have to be for this to happen?” says Joe Pounder, research director and deputy communications director at the Republican National Committee, in a statement.

He notes that Democratic Sen. Joe Manchin of West Virginia wouldn’t say whom he voted for in the primary. “Apparently, it’s a smarter political calculation to let people believe you may have voted for the guy in federal prison over the sitting president of your own party. Just saying,” Mr. Pounder writes.

West Virginia’s Democratic governor, Earl Ray Tomblin, has also not revealed his vote. Energy is a big issue in his state – America’s second-biggest producer of coal – and the Environmental Protection Agency’s handling of mining-related permits has angered the local industry, writes theAssociated Press.

In addition to being a convicted felon, Judd is also a serial presidential candidate. In the 2008Idaho Democratic primary, he finished third behind Obama and Hillary Rodham Clinton with 1.7 percent of the vote, per The Charleston Gazette.

What’s wrong With This Picture?

Fresh on the heels of news that now nearly 1/2 of Americans are at or below the poverty level, we are treated to the nightly charade of the Republican Party nomination…

8...7...6...5...4...3...2... WHO?

One of whose weekly flavors who is “leading” (as we are constantly reminded) is one of the people most responsible for America’s meltdown, and the sad, sad state of affairs of today. I mean, Neut’s 1994 Contract on America has to satnd as the penultimate symbol of failure..a 50 story building which never should have been allowed to go above 13 because it simply lacked either the architecture or the foundation. A Southern Fried bastardization of Raygun’s political strategy, but not political motivation, stewardship, patriotism, or integrity – Neut burned dow any mote of morality or integrity in the GOP, and made it a cheap crack whore junkie to the politics of polarization.

And they want to consider running this clown for President? The simple fact that Republicans are voting to allow him to run as their representative instead of a short vote for the choice of a rope or a bullet after a brief trial …  is full and graphic proof that the politics of phobias, racism, and greed will top the general welfare and national progress every time.
