I watched the whole thing and have a massive headache this morning, feeling like I drank myself into a stupor last night, when in fact, herbal tea was all I had. What an embarrassment for our country that this is the best the Grand Old Party was able to produce to lead.

EOF: You’ve said this twice now, and I haven’t done any checking of exact figures either, if any exist, but let me at least explain what I heard Sec. Clinton say about government growth. Her “helpful” answer was “by 40%” (I think I heard her say.) That would mean, using the baseline 21% cited, it would rise to 29%. Too much? Perhaps, but it’s not a “shocking and stifling 40%” or as you just said “in the ballpark of 50%.”
Erich Pomfret commented on Is Fox Starting To Make Marco Rubio Their Man For President? 2016-02-03 14:36:18 -0500
I don’t need to watch Fox or read anybody’s analysis to know that young Marco has indeed become their man of the hour. My 24/7 Fox-watching friend emailed me last night to announce that Rubio has her support all the way to victory. She’d never make a decision like that on her own.
Erich Pomfret commented on O’Reilly Attacks Former Colleague, Bob Beckel, For Saying Megyn Kelly Has Better Ratings 2016-01-31 09:22:40 -0500
O’Reilly should worry, although he won’t have to for long. Megyn showed her capabilities as an actual news person (as least to the extent her leash allowed it) on Thursday, and when Fox ‘News" folds, won’t have a great deal of difficulty finding work on a real news channel.

Just a general comment. I’m in Nevada, and have been in CA all week. As a Bernie fan, I’m encouraged by the love I’ve seen out here.

There is another, sad, end to the joke, Isaiah. If any of these clowns win the election. I go to Canada.

Orton was scheduled to appear in court yesterday. Does anyone know what happened?

After learning of H.R #564 and its 36 Republican sponsors with nothing better to do with their time and our money, I’ve said my LAST “Merry Christmas.” https://www.congress.gov/bill/114th-congress/house-resolution/564/text
Erich Pomfret commented on Jeanine Pirro's Gun Mania Wins Our Outrageous Quote Of The Week Poll 2015-12-13 09:55:21 -0500
Sadly, this sick nutcase’s rant is working. I have a friend, seriously, who is taking a crash course at a local gun range to learn how to use her shiny new silver gun to protect her daughters and grandbabies from the looming menace. What could possibly go wrong?
Erich Pomfret commented on Outrageous Fox News Quote Of The Week Poll: November 30 - December 5 2015-12-07 08:07:53 -0500
I’d have gone with Pirro without reading/listening because she’s always a safe bet, but just for that reason, I decided to look further. O’Reilly could be considered dangerous, but it’s hard to imagine anyone under the age of 75 listening to him. Smith’s special stupidity was blunted as part of a panel discussion, McCain was reaching, because, she’s… McCain, and it was too early for Johnson’s Xmas war to gain any real traction. That leaves Tantaros, and, although PP attacks are getting old, she showed remarkable creativity in updating hers to new Foxie relevancy. Thus, she earned my vote.

This was the most difficult (and distasteful) choice ever. The presidential candidates included aren’t outrageous, they’re disgusting pieces of filth masquerading as human beings. Limbaugh says nothing worth consideration by any decent person, and the others are, as El 84 stated, nothing but media whores. I regretfully must abstain this week.

I just got some good news. My friend is a 2nd cousin to Justin Trudeau, so if the unthinkable happens and we elect one of these nutjobs, expedited immigration is a definite possibility.

Ellen, I’ve said this to you before, but it bears repeating: I don’t know how you can watch/listen to this garbage without going insane. I was in the car at noon today, and when OutNumbered came on, I didn’t get through even 5 minutes before pulling into an ice cream shop where I tried to drown my sorrows in hot fudge.

If Conservatives can just hold on for another 16 months, President Carson will fix things. The new “Ivy League” schools curriculum will emulate such gems as the Andrews University food pyramid and we’ll all live happily until the Rapture.
