Prominent Republicans keep hoping for someone to rescue them from its slate of mediocre candidates. But the party’s biggest problem is the ideological bloodlust of its base.
The bombshell dropped in Saturday’s Playbook, the chattering-class email sent out every morning by the Politico’s Mike Allen. If Mitt Romney fails to win Michigan next Tuesday, a few high-powered Republicans have started saying, the party needs to go back to square one and recruit a new candidate. Yes, maybe it does. But what will that fix? Not much. What the party needs is not simply a new candidate. It needs someone with the courage to stand up and say that the GOP has gone completely off the deep end—and that the party could run an amalgam of Ronald Reagan and Mahatma Gandhi and he wouldn’t win as long as the party’s inflamed base keeps with its current attitudes. But it lacks such a person utterly. It’s a party made up of on the one hand unprincipled cowards, and on the other of people devoted to principles so extreme that they’d have serious trouble attracting more than about 42 percent of the vote.
The report continues with viable and on target points.
Cause God knows like most silly girls she just can't function without someone telling her how to handle herself at the ball - hands folded, not too many canapés, keep slightly aloof, a bit of cleavage but not too much, try not to prattle on and let the boys do most of the talking about themselves...
Even in the pre-debate runup I thought the news anchors were going to run the debate for her - 30 minutes of should this, should that - big shoulders to stand on.
At least his foray is a lot smaller than previous Russian adventurism, but is still every bit as clumsy. And stands to drive refugees into the hands of ISIS. The bombing that knocked out a flight from Egypt filled with Russians might make Vlad a bit hesitant to take this approach, but his tough guy ego probably can't resist anyway - like Donald, he likes to hit back hard, unappreciative of soft power. Sow => Reap => Weep.
The fuckers, 6 weeks out from the election and they're still trolling with this decades-old bullshit.
Guess it's the contest of 2 penises, and Hillary is just some kind of co-conspirator. Note to The Donald: vaginas aren't nearly as expensive as keeping dicks entertained - ask Anthony Weiner and Eliot Spritzer and Roger Ailes an Bill O'Reilly and Rudy Giuliani and John Edwards and Gary Hart. A lot of aspiring male virility washed up on the rocks.
Three days after guard dogs attacked Native Americans protesting an oil pipeline project in North Dakota in early September, an unprecedented event took place at the White House.
Brian Cladoosby, president of the National Congress of American Indians, which represents more than 500 tribes, spoke to nearly a dozen of President Barack Obama's Cabinet-level advisers at a September 6 meeting of the White House's three-year-old Native American Affairs Council.
It was the first time a tribal leader addressed a session of the council, and Cladoosby was invited in his role as the Indian Congress’ leader.
"We were speeding, trying to get back to Detroit. And we got pulled over in Ohio. I knew I was going to Jail due to a petty warrant. The police called Wayne county and they refused to come get me because of the distance. I explained to the officer that my sister had died and that I needed to get to my mother asap. I broke down crying and he saw the sincerity in my cry. He REACHES OVER AND BEGAN PRAYING OVER ME AND MY FAMILY. He offered to bring me 100 miles further to Detroit because they towed the vehicle. Everybody knows how much I dislike Cops but I am truly Greatful for this Guy. He gave me hope"
