Creepiest Damn SuperPAC Ad Ever

It’s from Katich’s SuperPAC

Bet Ya!

Okay, so here’s the deal.  If you so wish, you may now place bets on damn near every political are in America.  I can’t prove this but I suspect Donald Trump is getting a kickback on all this.

It’s place in Ireland who pretty much is willing to wager on everything.  Texas included.  They give Texas 14 /1 odds of flipping blue this year.

You can bet on the Democratic vice presidential candidate and the length of Donald Trump’s Little Trump all on the same page.  They like Julian Castro, Tim Kaine, and about half a foot.

You can also wager on figure skating and cricket, not that you would, of course.

Thanks to Texas Monthly for the heads up.

Rock Out with Your Caucus Out

Of all the online salons and barber shops I’ve visited, none – NOT ONE – has had the high level of political participation that I’ve seen here. I mean, not only do you guys “get it,” you also go out and “Get It Done!”  Many of us have worked on campaigns, some of us have run for office (and even won), and more than a couple of us have at some time or another been delegates to the Democratic National Convention.

Democratic-National-Convention-Philadelphia-2016And I know a few of you also, this year, will be trekking to Philadelphia to help change the course of our country’s history during the hot, hot summer, much as our Founders did in 1776 and again in 1789. I think it’s important –  Nay! – I think it is CRITICAL to the future of this nation that the voices of the World’s Most Dangerous Beauty Salon be joined in comity and unity during these tumultuous days.

Therefore, with the blessing of the management, Ms J.J. Herownself, I am pleased to announce the formation of the WMDBS Caucus. The first meeting will be held in or around Philadelphia, during the last week of July, at a bar, coffeehouse, tavern, restaurant, pub, lounge, or other venue suitable to such an august gathering.

If you are planning on attending the Convention, or if you live within traveling distance and would like to attend a meet-up, indicate your interest and availability in the comments and we will be in touch. Also, anyone can suggest agenda items.  The first agenda item will be: “Should there be a second meeting, or should we just stay at this bar until Church next Sunday?”

Real Conservatives

Empower Texans, a group to the right of Ted Cruz, is supporting a Republican candidate named Kyle Biedermann against an incumbent Republican state representative.  They gave Biedermann $25,000.

I kinda suspect that was long before they knew about this:



That’s Biedermann on the right.  He’s gay Hitler.

His explanation?

“Thanks for your interest in my campaign,” he wrote. “The explanation is simple. This was a fundraiser for the Food Pantry and the Needs Counsel with about 400 people with a SNL theme … The costumes are supposed to be outrageous and Mine certainly was. Gay Hitler was a SNL character from the show which of coarse (sic) is a spoof.”

He added in the email, “I am not gay and never have been. Don’t know anything about Swingers Clubs and no desire to find out. I have an amazing wife.”

Swingers Clubs?  Who said anything about Swingers Clubs?

Biedermann owns a hardware shop in Fredericksburg, where he has organized a festival that celebrates German heritage. “Fasching Fredericksburg” was inspired by the German Karneval, or foolish season, he told the San Antonio Express-News in 2013.

Okay.  He does realize he’s not helping himself, right?  I dunno, “German hardware shop” just kinda morphs into stuff I don’t want to think about.  You know, like … I dunno, gay Hitler?

Biedermann says …

“It’s only a problem because somebody is running against me and is trying to hurt my character,” Biedermann said. “It was never a problem before … My opponent wants to do sleaze things. This is what people hate about politics.”

No, mostly what we hate about politics is people like you, Biedermann.


Here’s the Deal

Okay, so I have noticed all this hoopla over Trump’s manager supposedly shoving a female reporter and then Trump watching the videotape and saying that the woman was obviously dangerous.

Seriously.  He said that.

Donald Trump on Tuesday night offered America a new menace to be afraid of: a reporter with a pen.

Trump, speaking at a CNN town hall event, said former Breitbart reporter Michelle Fields had been holding a pen when she approached him with a question earlier this month at an event in Florida.

“She had a pen in her hand, which Secret Service is not liking because they don’t know what it is, whether it’s a little bomb,” Trump said. “Michelle Fields, by the way, is not a baby.” (Fields is 28.)

Oh, that’s good to know.  Donald Trump is going to take out Isis if a reporter with a pen doesn’t frighten him enough to make him poop his pants first.

You might not agree with me about this, but I think women with pens should be allowed into the Republican National Convention no matter what the Secret Service says.

It’s like they say – the pen is mightier than the sword.  Donald is going to be shocked when he learns they don’t mean that literally.
