Oh Dear

Hey, you know what Bismarck said about making laws and sausage . . . .

Jimmy Dean Food Company Political PAC just got a fussy letter from the FEC about problems with their ethics filing.

Don’t watch!

Thanks to Alfredo over at the Dairy queen for the heads up.

Texas Is Closed Today

It is sleeting in my neck of the woods today and it might even snow this afternoon.  They closed my county.

I know I should feel blessed to live in an area where temperatures in the 20’s cause the Houston local news station to stay on all day with pictures of actual icicles.  The schools are closed, county and city government is closed, and everybody is inside making chili for dinner.

 

Pray for us, y’all.  We can’t stand this.

 

Is Trump a Racist?

Well, your neighbors at the New York Times says there is certainly evidence of it going way back from the shithole comment.

They have made a definitive list of Trump’s racist statements and actions and then published it on MLK Day.  As expected, it’s long.

Donald Trump is now saying that he never compared other counties to latrines.

And this weekend, two Southern Republican senators who were in the Trump meeting are reversing their position and now contending that Trump didn’t say it.

U.S. Sen. David Perdue, R-Ga., who was in that meeting with Trump, made a course correction. On Friday, the senator put out a joint statement with Senate colleague Tom Cotton, R-Ark. Both said they couldn’t remember the president comparing Third World nations to latrines.

Couldn’t remember?  Really?  Is your memory machine in need of tinkering?

I guess Perdue heard the snickering so he took a third position:

This morning [Sunday], Perdue said it never happened. “I’m telling you he did not use that word, George. And I’m telling you it’s a gross misrepresentation. How many times do you want me to say that?”

Well, maybe enough times to make it true?

Meanwhile, conservation radio talk host host Eric Erickson, tweeted.

 

Apparently, rightwing Republican Southern senators are no longer in the base.

 

Happy MLK Day!

Oh Trey, So Soon?

Here’s a headline to warm your heart —

 

 

Yeah, “workload.” Isn’t that cute? He could have said, “Needed more time for my hair.” I would believe that.

So, here’s the fun rumor:  It is said that Gowdy, exactly like Blake Farenthold, has made taxpayers pay hush money over his indiscretions with various young ladies.  Except with Gowdy, it’s more money – $150,000. I think that’s because he’s even more disgusting than Farenthold.

If that is true, I think resigning from the House Ethics Committee won’t pay the piper.  He needs to resign congress.  Today.  Today would be a good day.

Thanks to S Grey for the heads up.
