You Got Your Wish Senator Graham

If you recall, Lindsey Graham is known for the statement:

“The demographics race we’re losing badly. We’re not generating enough angry white guys to stay in business for the long term.”

graham trumpNow that his party has become the exact demographic he wanted, Donald Trump is leading in the GOP polls, and poor Lindsey Graham has the sadz. In an interview with CNN:

Graham chalked Trump’s lead up to a “dark side of politics that Mr. Trump is appealing to.” He said Trump is channeling the same Republican primary voters who believe President Barack Obama is a Muslim and was born in Kenya.

“He is shallow, he is ill-prepared to be commander-in-chief, he doesn’t know what he is talking about in terms of how our laws work, he says the worst things possible about immigrants and women, and he’s a complete idiot when it comes to Mideast policy…

Luckily he specified he was was talking about Donald Trump, because the above description could fit any one of the GOP’s 2016 candidates. Graham added:

“So I think over time, common sense will prevail.”

Does he really. For the past 7 years, Lindsey Graham and his party have said and done nothing to inform their voters or improve their lives. They have stoked the GOP fires of racism, bigotry, and misogyny, while governing through blatant dishonesty. They’ve been happy to let their voters’ uneducated anger fester and grow.

It is Conservatives who have driven the wedge deeper and deeper into this country; now it has blown up in their face with Donald Trump’s candidacy. They have no message, they have no plan, and now they’ve lost any shred of legitimacy.

This is the party you asked for, Senator Graham:

Are you happy now?

Donald Trump’s Fantasy Cabinet

trump clownDue to a large swath of imbeciles in the Conservative Movement, Donald Trump is currently leading the polls for the GOP’s 2016 Presidential nomination. So Mr. Trump, clown extraordinaire, is considering his tentative cabinet, should hell freeze over, pigs fly, it snows in summer, and he gets elected. It is a mashup of has-beens, never-weres, and egos the size of Texas.

Trump recently stated he would love to have Sarah Palin in his cabinet. I think a locked cabinet in someone’s basement would be better for the country but hey, what do I know. What cabinet post you ask? He didn’t say, but let’s think:

palin empty chairSecretary of Education? Don’t think so. Not only are her English language skills debatable, but her grasp of American history and geography hovers around 1st grade level.

Secretary of Labor? Hardly. Do the terms Sarah Palin and work go hand in hand to you?

Secretary of the Interior? She probably thinks that means redecorating the White House.

coulter scarecrowI have to admit, the Palin post is a stumper. Ann Coulter on the other hand, is volunteering to be Trump’s Secretary of Homeland Security. How about head of border security? He could just tie the emaciated witch to a post and prop her up on the border somewhere, sort of like an androgynous scarecrow. Nobody would come near that.

Trump also said he’d like to make Trey Gowdy Attorney General. He’s the little pinhead with the oversized ego in charge of the Republicans’ SEVENTH committee looking into Benghazi. Just the word Benghazi gives this guy a woody. FYI, the New York Observer reports:

trey-gowdyOver 13 months the Benghazi Select Committee has spent more than $3,500,000, exceeding the budget of the entire House Intelligence Committee.

Rep. Gowdy now states the committee will continue its work into 2016 raising its cost to taxpayers to more than $6,000,000…

He’ll probably end up old and senile, wandering around the nursing home muttering the word Benghazi, punctuated by occasional shouts of Hillary! like a Tourette’s sufferer.

I’m actually looking forward to the humor Trump’s “Cabinet picks” will provide, but you and I know the only cabinet he stands a chance of organizing in 2016 is his medicine cabinet.

Marco Rubio is No Statesman

rubio water bottleFor one brief second I thought: Wow, maybe Marco Rubio is one Republican candidate with a sliver of character. I was reading his response to Donald Trump’s immigration statements, where he said:

“Here’s what’s so important to me; the presidency of the United States is not just the top government official. It is the leader of our people and our nation as well.

It’s important we have– to conduct the presidency, it has to be done in a dignified way, with a level of class. I don’t think the way he’s behaved over the last few weeks is either dignified or worthy of office he seeks.”

7617-illustration-of-a-yellow-and-red-burst-pv2Then the little shit slapped me right back to reality:

“We already have a president now that has no class.”

What the hell was I thinking? I’ve been around too long to expect any degree of civility from Conservatives. Truth is, Marco Rubio almost lost his seat at the GOP adult table after his little foray into immigration reform, and still has a lot of kissing and making up to do. We’ll never see an original thought from that guy again. But since he wants to talk about about class, I’ll oblige; here’s the level of class Mr. Rubio has exhibited, courtesy of Mother Jones:

  • Charging personal expenses on the party credit card
  • Double billing Florida taxpayers and the GOP for flights
  • Finally paying a home mortgage after 5 months because it was headed to foreclosure
Bear in mind, this is a guy who said:
 
We need transparency in government spending. We need to put each government expenditure online so every Floridian can see where their tax money is being spent.

But my personal favorite regarding the class act that is Marco Rubio: Voting against the 2014 Bank on Students Emergency Loan Refinancing Act when it took the man himself 16 years to pay off over $100,000 in student loan debt. Luckily for Rubio, unlike most graduates, he could pay it off with the proceeds from a book.

Marco Rubio once said:

We must change the decisions we are making by changing the people who are making them.

I don’t know about you, but I’d say he’s one of the first that needs to go.
