Re: GOP Will Shit Itself



I know I've posted this before in the context of it being a modern political speech, but it's a pretty evergreen meme.

Re: GOP Will Shit Itself

I find the Supreme Court to be so compromised at this point, not just due to this or Trump but in general, that the best case scenario I can imagine is a constitutional referendum on how we appoint our judges, and for how long.

Re: Arizona is a blasted hellscape

He can only do that if Kyl steps down voluntarily. The appointment is for the rest of the term. What I'm really curious about is the actual wording of the law at this point. Because normally if a Senator retires mid term, we get a special election. So would Ducey REALLY get another bite at the apple...

Hold on. I know that that video is definitely after he got an SS tattoo somewhere on his body, but is he holding a copy of the fucking TURNER DIARIES in that video thumb nail? What's the matter? Lose your copy of Mein Kampf?

Homophobia and anti-gay laws are one of the most enduring relics of colonialism. Uganda is a particularly tragic example in recent memory.

Trumpenation: We must have had holes in our heads.

Real answer is, of course, just TRUMP is gold lettering, probably the font straight off his tower.

In the Worst Humans to be President race the original champion was Jackson. War criminal and proud of it, that's what he used to say.

It's pronounced Kyle, his family just doesn't believe in the letter "E"

Re: Arizona is a blasted hellscape

Yeah, John Kyl was the other safe pick. Given the nature of the law in question, appointing someone the people of Arizona have already voted in to office is a reasonable choice. Kyl isn't going to rock anyone's boat, but neither was McCain at this point.

Re: Jernalism!

Teams are just an analog for Tribes, and not the fun spinfusor kind of Tribes. There is a part of the human brain that is looking at every other human to constantly reaffirm who is "Us" and who is "Them". "They" are not to be trusted.

I'm just glad to see Kelli Ward fail at every turn. She is utterly intolerable. RE: John McCain's replacement. It's more common in the House to go for the spouse, but I'd prefer Cindy McCain. She's basically just a philanthropist, and I can't imagine her doing very much until we get another bite at ...

Re: Arizona is a blasted hellscape

At least it was just the primary. Obviously everyone should have ready access to their polling location as soon as it's open, but it would be worse in the general elections.

Re: Rooty-tooty point and shootys

The delay at a live event is basically moot, from a content point of view, but in terms of cutting the stream before it records an atrocity there's no remote booth that can hit the kill switch. Production is on site and under a table by that point.

Re: Arizona is a blasted hellscape

I'm not sure how it works once they're out, but I think that is a moot if for no other reason than that the appointment is supposed to be timely.

Re: Arizona is a blasted hellscape

Fortunately, he can't. No one currently on the ballot is viable.
