    good news for the dems

  2. Wes says:

    Ben Ray Lujan will run for Senate; Hector Balderas will Seder.

    Barring a particularly brutal Dem primary and a major gaffe by their nominee, NM-Sen is a Likely to Solid D Hold.

  3. Phil says:

    New Mexico is gone…….following the footsteps of California. Nevada pretty much gone as well.

    Demographics. Texas should hang on red for at least one more four year cycle.

    Taiwan mulls death penalty for drunk driving…

    ‘They could have worn white face’: Jussie Smollett lawyer offers bizarre explanation as to why the Empire actor told police his Nigerian assailants were white – and points to old video of one of them wearing make-up to play the Joker as potential proof

  6. lisab says:

    French army receives authorization to shoot “yellow vest” protesters

    good thing france has common sense gun control

  7. lisab says:

    if we assume that cutler is a top 7 qb … as has been claimed …

    of what is he top 7? certainly not football. 🙂

  8. Wes says:

    Bitterlaw would prefer it if the constitutional provision requiring Presidents to be natural-born citizens were repealed so Taiwan could export its drunk drivers here to run for President.

    He certainly has a fetish for drunk-driving Presidents.

  9. GeauxLSU says:

    Any chance Suzanna Martinez gets in the Senate race in NM?

  10. Wes says:

    0%. Martinez is the sole caregiver to two disabled siblings.

    Allan Weh—who had a stronger-than-expected showing in 2014–is a possibility though I wouldn’t expect Weh to win outside the circumstances I outlined above.

  11. Wes says:

    Sununu is seriously considering challenging Shaheen. This would effectively kill any remote chance Dems have of winning back the Senate next year:

  12. Tina says:

    Paul Sperry
    NEW: McCabe recounts in book how he didn’t open full investigation of Boston bombers b/c didn’t trust Russian intel which he claimed was unreliable, yet he gladly trusted dirt on Trump offered by Russian sources & opened several investigations based on it! (More evidence of bias)

  13. Wes says:

    I guess I can post my Senate rankings (predicated on the idea that Sununu runs):

    Solid R Hold-


    Likely R Hold-


    Likely R Pickup-




    Likely D Hold-


    Solid D Hold-


  14. mnw says:

    1) Before Trump & DOJ decided to support the TX district court ruling holding ACA uncttl in its entirety, the administration SHOULD have had their own promised healthcare reform proposal ready to roll out. What they’ve got right now is, “We’ve got nothing to replace it if it’s overturned, but please stay tuned. We’ll get back to you.”

    2) My impression is that the DEMs, & all their POTUS candidates, want to raise taxes on the rich, by increasing the capital gains tax. The DEMs consider that the easiest tax increase to sell. This could help the GOP reclaim some of those affluent suburban districts they lost. Just when your 401k was looking SOOOO good, wham-o. See what the DEM proposal would likely do to it.

  15. Phil says:

    Can’t argue with any of that, Wes. I might place Alabama in the Solid R pickup, however. Might temper that somewhat due to Jones being the incumbent, but I think a presidential year in Alabama seals his fate.

    Republicans hold the Senate.

    Republicans will pick up 8 to 10 House seats.

  16. Wes says:

    I don’t use a Solid Pickup category, Phil. Likely is as far as I go for flips. When I put flips into my Likely category I’m saying I fully expect a change from one party to the other.

  17. Phil says:

    Understood, Wes.

  18. dblaikie says:

    I have to agree with Wes’s Senate projections. However I am going to keep an interested eye on the Virginia race.

  19. Bitterlaw says:

    Wes attacks out of nowhere. Tink must be giving it away for free at work again.

  20. Tina says:

    Drat 2020 campaign message:

    America was never that great.

  21. Bitterlaw says:

    While I do not support the death penalty for all drunk driving cases, if the drunk driver kills somebody, they should be charged with first degree murder. If that carries a death sentence, so be it. It is the easiest crime to avoid. Driving? Don’t drink.

  22. Wes says:

    Driving? Don’t drink—unless you want me to proudly vote for you for President twice.

    There, Bitter. I completed your thought for you.

    You’re welcome.

  23. NYCmike says:


    The horse is dead, about 3x over.

    It isn’t funny.

    Please stop.

  24. NYCmike says:

    “However, what he possesses above all is the instinct required to win. He’s not playing nine dimensional chess (or whatever), as his biggest fans like to claim, but he’s playing to win, knows what winning takes, and is willing to push the envelope to get it done.”

  25. NYCmike says:

    For Eric Holder:

    “But in case you thought all was lost, there are a few things kids today can do without your knowledge or consent: have an abortion; take body-altering drugs to stop puberty in case they have gender identity problems; and get the abortion pill or vaccines! When people say “Make America Great Again,” they mean stop this crap and go back to a time to when a great childhood meant going for candy with friends without being harassed — not going to a baby butcher without parental knowledge.”

  26. lisab says:

    Republicans hold the Senate.

    Republicans will pick up 8 to 10 House seats.

    but what if trump has a 14 point loss to beto?

  27. lisab says:

    people have literally been sending bags of salt to cnn headquarters

    supposedly 3 tons are enroute!

  28. Tina says:

    China ready now to negotiate on trade

    A settlement is likely.

    But remember, muh soybean?

  29. Tina says:

    Cnn livid.

    Military scouting locations to build border wall.

    Just declare the entire border that can be bad a giant drug route,

  30. Tina says:

    I keep liking granite more and more…

    Ryan Saavedra
    Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) on Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA): “Congressman Schiff is really becoming Oliver Stone of the house. He’s the Jim Garrison figure trying to look for somebody who actually shot President Kennedy”

    “Schiff’s got to make a decision about his political future”

  31. lisab says:

    The press is impotent when it abandons itself to falsehood.

    thomas jefferson

  32. Wes says:

    You’re assuming I’m trying to be funny, Mikey. I’m not. I’m just highlighting how Bitterlaw is willing to abandon all his so-called principles when GWB violates them.

  33. Chicon says:

    36 – it’s important for the casual poster in case they missed it the other 8,634 times you’ve made that point.

  34. Wes says:



  35. mnw says:

    Rush has lost a lot of weight & acquired some terrifying’ new threads, too.

  36. mnw says:

    sb “terrifyin'”

  37. Wes says:

    It was an acknowledgement of the point you were making about how I excessively badger Bitter for his GWB adulation, Chicon.

  38. Chicon says:

    That ? was supposed to be a thumbs up emoji.

  39. Wes says:

    Oh. All right.

  40. Chicon says:

    Just crackin some ballz…

  41. Tina says:

    Trumps Grand Rapids Rally is tonight. There are folks everywhere and the lines run for miles,

    Parscale, says trump will be savage.

  42. Tina says:

    Piglosi just called AG Barr “condescending” and “arrogant.”

    Drats going full loony.

  43. mnw says:

    Fasten your seat belts.

    I watched the Hannity interview– I suspect I got the abbreviated version last night already.

  44. Tom says:

    47. They went full loony years ago and Nancy is the head loon.

  45. Tina says:

    Yes, mnw, it will be lit,

  46. mnw says:


    How to improve a MAGA rally:

    1) Always show up on time, just like the Queen does.

    2) Get a live band for God’s sake, not canned music.

  47. Tina says:

    Mnw, I could not do the line.

    Will have to catch his speech later tonite

  48. Bitterlaw says:

    Poor Wes. Still stupid. This all stems from the fact that I said that I would nebmvwe HIRE somebody with a DUI conviction because of a concern over liability in a lawsuit. Under Respondest Duperior and Negligent Entrustment theories, an EMPLOYER can be liable for Damages if an EMPLOYEE acting in the course and scope of his employment causes an accident. That risk is greater with a DUI and would cause insurance premiums to skyrocket. It has nothing to do with voting.

  49. Bitterlaw says:

    Superior not Duperior

  50. Wes says:

    In other words, Bitter, you don’t want DUI offenders working for you. You just want them running your country.

    The word for that in English begins with an “h” and ends with a “y.”

    By the way, are you sure you didn’t have a few before typing that post?

  51. NYCmike says:

    “Superior not Duperior”

    -I was just about to say I must have missed that class!

  52. NYCmike says:

    “You just want them running your country.”

    -As opposed to a peanut farmer or a community organizer?

    ANY DAY of the week!

  53. NYCmike says:

    “I said that I would nebmvwe ”

    -Those Philly A-Holes are a bunch of deviants!

  54. Bitterlaw says:

    In other words, Wes, you are too stupid to understand what I posted. Got it.

    Did you get married yet or is Tink still falling for your false promises?

  55. Bitterlaw says:

    I was typing on my phone without my reading glasses. I have not had a drink in 3 years and probably only 4 in the 23 years before that. I’m not interested in it.

  56. Bitterlaw says:

    Maybe somebody could explain it to Wes.

  57. Wes says:

    Well, you got both of those, Mikey—the latter because of the drunk driver.

    Good job!

  58. Wes says:

    Oh, I get it, Bitter.

    You’re a GWB-worshipping hypocrite who abandons all his “principles”—like zero tolerance for DUI—the second GWB violates them.

    It’s quite apparent.

  59. lisab says:

    I have not had a drink in 3 years and probably only 4 in the 23 years before that.

    well there’s your problem!

  60. Bitterlaw says:

    I could not be sued if GWB hit someone with a car because I voted for him. I could be sued if I employed him.

    Of course, the idea that you have any principles is a joke. You voted for Bush twice. Now you wish you had voted for Gore – one of the few Dems to the left of Hillary and Obama. You treat women worse than Trump. That is almost impossible but you manage it. Your admire Bill Clinton – another abuser of women. Save the lectures.

  61. mnw says:


    I grade Trump in Grand Rapids “B+.” I thought he finished very strong. Very. “I’ll never forget the people of Michigan who put me here tonight…”

    I thought the border part was exciting, but that’s just me.

    But for the final 5 minutes? C+.

  62. Tgca says:


    I’m proud of you Bitter that you have pretty much stayed dry all these years with just a few slips of the wagon. You must have a dedicated AA sponsor to keep you focused. Good for you my friend.

  63. lisab says:

    drink like you are a main character on mad men

  64. Cash Cow TM says:

    Candidate Buttgig is making his move in the polls…
    Can I be the first to call him President Buttgig?

  65. lisab says:

    heh heh … you said “butt” …

  66. Bitterlaw says:

    Tgca – I never went to AA. I drank at parties in college. I just quit after that. My mom, brother and sister drank more than enough for the family.

  67. Tina says:

    8 U.S.C. 1182(f) to be exact.

    The Columbia Bugle ??
    If President Trump shuts down the Border, the Chamber of Commerce will cry and the RINOs will squeal, but MAGA will unleash a mighty roar that will reverberate across the land.

    Defend the Homeland!!!
