What's the number for the horse's trig class?

post #40455 of 45000
We are just now hearing that the horse may have in fact forged Moore's yearbook entry.

Yup, multiple journalists asked about it at the Press Briefing today and SHS just caterwauled that anyone who thought that "had a dirty mind" and that Gillibrand is "totally owned by her donors".

 

Meanwhile, 59 female members of Congress have demanded an investigation into Trump's history of sexual harassment: http://thehill.com/homenews/house/364387-nearly-60-female-lawmakers-call-for-probe-into-sexual-allegations-against

A reporter asks a Trump official for data backing up its immigration plan, and, uh, what data?

Quote:
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) signaled on Tuesday that the winner of the Alabama Senate special election will not be sworn in before the Senate wraps up its work for the year.
"Sen. Strange is going to be here through the end of this session," McConnell told reporters, referring to Sen. Luther Strange (R-Ala.), when asked about the Senate race's impact on the timeline for tax reform.
Senators want to wrap up their work for the year next week, which would mean McConnell would be able to depend on Strange's vote on tax reform and funding the government.

Mitch just makes this shit up as he goes.

post #40462 of 45000
Of the many forms of punishment I want folks to go through, there are few things i want more than to see Mitch McConnell have to sit on his hands while the Supreme Court gets 5 liberal justices.

I want him to see that all of his work twisting the Constitution has been for nothing.

I want this.

Well, I hope that he has nightmares about this moment, anyway.

Fuckabee really needs to go. If she was a man, she’d wear a fedora and try to break out of the friendzone with all women demanding sex for being nice. I am sick and fucking tired of this woman having to explain the words of a misogynist every day.

I’m stepping out for the night. Gonna flip on Silent Night, Deadly Night Part 2.
post #40472 of 45000

If i EVER find myself justifying a position by stating "Well, Trump did it" I will eat a fucking gun.

post #40473 of 45000

yeah, I'm out as well.  I'll watch the highlights of the evening so that I don't turn into a rage ball.

It's pretty amazing that she's even shittier than her dad and her dog-killing brother.

 

Yeah, no way in hell am I going to monitor this election tonight. I need to watch something less surreal and horrifying, so I'm going to watch my Twin Peaks: The Return Blu-ray.

post #40475 of 45000
She basically confirmed today that she’s an MRA activist.

That’s the news, and I’m outta here!

I've already worked out most of my rage-issues during the high school U.S. Government classes I teach, and ranting against Roy Moore and Trump in front of the kids (though we've had some absolutely amazing, important discussions on this whole shitfest of a campaign, too).

 

Pretty much resigned to a squeakthrough Moore-victory tonight, but I'd love to be shocked. Will definitely be glued to MSNBC this evening.

post #40481 of 45000

I'm gonna play video games and make sure the tv in the background is tuned to a movie channel that won't break in with updates. I want a few more hours of blissful ignorance.

The politics of the region were a strong motivating factor when my wife and I decided last year to uproot from the American South and strike out west to Oregon. I'm going to spend the rest of the day keeping my head down in my blue town in this blue state, trying my best to forget Alabama exists. Maybe I'll eat a fish taco or something.

My brother just moved to Oregon (Coos Bay) back in September, and it's pretty blissful out there in his area if you want to purge Alabama from your mind, Eternal Sunshine-style.

Just watch out for the Skinheads in Portland!

post #40486 of 45000

I'll be down in Coos Bay next week.

 

And yeah the pacific coast is a magical, magical place. Here's a photo I took a bit further north at Yaquina Head.

 

 

and yeah while there are fewer dumb rednecks, there are more flat-out fuckin Nazis. I'm in Eugene, though. Just a bunch of old hippies around here.

The Pacific Northwest is some gorgeous country alright.

The S.O. and I are gonna be flying out there next week from Illinois for the holidays, and one way or another after tonight, once I'm there, I could probably give two mouse-turds and a baby aspirin for people who'd willingly fuck themselves over on purpose at the ballot-box.

post #40489 of 45000

The legal pot certainly helps on that measure.

 

If the timing works out maybe we can grab a beer or something. I'm not entirely clear on when it'll be but late next week sounds about right.

Scanning his mind for any minority groups he could have demonized more forcefully, Alabama Senate candidate and secret Democratic operative Roy Moore admitted Tuesday that he wasn’t sure what else he could have done to destroy the Republican Party’s reputation. “When Nancy [Pelosi] sent me here, I was convinced that revealing myself as a pedophile would be more than enough, but now I’m just at a loss,” said Moore, who admitted he thought DNC chair Tom Perez was going over the top by suggesting he say gay marriage had made the U.S. the source of all evil, but that didn’t even budge the polls. “I mean, I stood on a stage and wistfully recalled the era in which slavery existed in this country. What else am I supposed to do? I’ve been really digging deep to vilify the GOP and make myself unelectable, but I still might win.”

The early exit polls are hitting the numbers Jones would need for a close race, but early exit polls aren't the be-all-end-all.

Horse twitter has been pointing out since the video showed up that Moore clearly has no fucking idea how to ride a horse, and the horse appears to be terrified and wants to buck him off.

post #40493 of 45000

At least, in these dark times, I can at least be assured that "horse Twitter" is an actual thing.

Are there still NASA peeps in Huntsville? No idea what the culture there is like.

post #40496 of 45000

One of Moore's spokesmen was left momentarily unable to respond after Jake Tapper informed him that politicians don't have to be sworn in on the Bible.

 

Seriously. Watch this.

 

 

 

"But...I was sworn in on one!"

 

"Yeah, and I could also choose to get married in Vegas while dressed as a kangaroo. That was your choice, dumbass."

I know it's been said before, but Holy. Fucking. Shit.

 

I'm a middle-aged man and it honestly never once occurred to me that in my lifetime I'd hear not only (1) a Congressional candidate declare the era of slavery as "America at it's greatest," or (2) watch someone defend that shit on national television.

Why am I not surprised?

I think we need a rule that any politician who wants to put on appearances to appeal to a group should have to spend a month actually living the lifestyle they're trying to signify. Send Moore out to work the range; make all the people who photo-op with hunting rifles and "camo" wear go out in the woods and kill, butcher, and eat their own game. (I don't know what you'd do for all the white people trying to cozy up to minorities that wouldn't be horrendously awkward, but there oughta be something.)

I mean, whether or not they actually learn anything, it'd be hilarious to watch.
post #40499 of 45000
I'm just amazed that the GOP in 2017 is basically, "Slavery is a settled issue. Don't worry... much."
