Because They Are Sick People

I have long believed that it takes some sort of genetic screw-up to make someone a Republican.  I also think that more than likely, most of it is caused by a preoccupation with s-e-x.

Marlett’s Mugshot

There’s lots of example of that, you know.

We have a new one.  Oklahoma Republican State Senator (those are some cringe-worthy words, right?) Bryce Marlatt is a dandy.

In December of 2015, Bryce was found passed out in his car.  The discovering police officer asked Bryce how many beers he imbibed, Bryce woke up to answer.

Marlatt was asleep in the vehicle and smelled heavily of alcohol, according to the arrest report. Police say the first comprehensible thing the man said when asked how much he had to drink tonight was, “No more than anybody else.”

When asked how many beers he had, Marlatt said, “None. I had what you would call a bourbon and Coke,” police say.

Oh hell, the boy’s a real rocket surgeon.

And he learned diddle squat since then.

State Sen. Bryce Marlatt (R-OK) on Wednesday was named as a suspect in a case involving lewd acts against a female Uber driver, News Channel 4 reports.

The driver approached an officer on Monday, explaining that she “was transporting a customer when he made advances on her during transit,” according to the police report. The suspect allegedly began “grabbing her forcefully and kissing [her] on the neck while she was driving.”

Appropriately enough, Marlett is Vice-Chair of the Senate Transportation Committee.

Thanks to Larry for the heads up.

And Just When You Thought That …

… Republicans had used up their allotment of crazy, they go and have a tweet storm.

They tweet pictures of Democrats lambasting the Republican heathcare plan and ask, “Where’s YOUR plan,” Hillary Clinton, Bill Clinton, Elizabeth Warren, Al Franken, Bernie Sanders, Democrats?


Okay, see, these are the same Republicans who tried to repeal Obamacare about a 100 times for the past seven years, and now that they’re the dog who finally caught the car … they have no plan.

These are the same Republicans who control both houses of congress and the presidency, but can’t come up with a damn plan.

Okay, they want to see the Democratic plan?





Oh dear, I miss the good-ole-days when Republicans took Democratic surpluses and used it to give tax cuts to their rich friends instead of taking healthcare away from helpless little children.

They are crazy, y’all.

Thanks to SGray for the heads up.


Chris Christie

Chris Christie decided to take his 15% approval rating out for a day on the beach.

Here’s the deal.  Christie shut down the government in New Jersey over a budget standoff.  That meant all the beaches and state parks are closed over the 4th of July weekend.  You know, to everybody except … Chris Damn Christie.

Land Beach State Park was closed by Christie’s showdown.  So Christie and his family were the lucky winners of a whole beach all to themselves. They are using the summer beach house provided by the state for a weekend down at the shore.

Christie, who first disclosed his weekend plans on Monday, said Sunday he was taking the state helicopter to go back and forth between Island Beach State Park and Trenton.

When asked if it was fair that he got the whole island to himself, Christie responded, “Run for governor, and you can have a residence there.”



Thanks to Deb T for the heads up.


Imagine, If You Will …

The Washington Post is reporting this morning that the head of Trump’s so-called Voter Fraud Commission has made a request of every state’s voter file so he can give it to the Russians.  Okay, okay, I just made up that last part.

“The chair of President Trump’s Election Integrity Commission has penned a letter to all 50 states requesting their full voter-roll data, including the name, address, date of birth, party affiliation, last four Social Security number digits and voting history back to 2006 of potentially every voter in the state.”

He says he’s going to make all this information available to the public.

I don’t know how they do it in other states, but in Texas, we don’t have to give our social security number to register to vote.  In Texas, voting records are public information, but you need certain information to access them.  Here’s how my county does it.  And Texas has laws about how that information can be used.

I’m gonna try real hard to think of a way this information would be important to anyone in the federal government except for voter suppression.

Nope, can’t do it.

Now, close your eyes for a minute and ask yourself what would happen if all registered firearms lists had to be released to the public.  Yeah, that’s the sound of hell breaking.


Maybe This Is The Pussy Trump Should Have Grabbed

Everybody’s favorite bad liar and gotta-be-on-drugs to act like he does, Devin Nunes, is loudly burping out of his mouth again.

But whatever drugs he’s taking has not helped with his paranoia.  His rambling interview at a local rightwing radio station is an adventure in persecution complexities.

By the way, he has also caught that thing that Trump has hugely bigly.

Nunes was then asked why an all-Republican Congress was not passing more legislation. He corrected the caller, saying the House, Senate and Trump have signed more bills into law than any previous Congress/presidential combination in history up to this point.

Oh, that might be a tiny exaggeration.

But, here’s the part that got me.  Nunes says that he can’t possibly have town halls because, you know, citizens might show up and we can’t be having that.  Do you know why?

“The last thing we’re going to do is give in to a lot of left-wing activists and media,” Nunes said. “And with these security situations, I don’t know how any member of Congress can do a town hall.”

Security situations?  What the hell is that? Do you want to know who shows up in person and walks along a rope line shaking hands?  Gabby Gifford, that’s who.

Nunes is a coward.

Go read the interview linked above.  The guy is nine cents short of a dime.

‘Cuz We Don’t Need No Damn Guvment!

Front page of the Houston Chronicle this morning: Budget Cuts



This ain’t gonna improve none at all.

Despite a two-year budget of $2.4 billion, the Texas Department of Public Safety, with little notice, has reduced office hours at 11 of the state’s busiest driver’s license offices and plans to lay off more than 100 full-time employees to deal with a $21 million funding crunch.

The statewide police agency’s primary function is to patrol state highways and issue driver’s licenses, but in recent years has spent hundreds of millions on security operations along the 1,200-mile border with Mexico.

That ain’t your job, DPS.  Patrolling the border is Donald Trump’s job.

The last time I renewed my driver’s license, I had to go in person. I had to wait in line for 3 hours. Now it’s going to get worse. Yippee!

Thank you, Republicans.
