Like I said a few weeks ago, John McCain can't die fast enough.

Well you do have to hand it to little Pudgy Wudgy sometimes, aka as 'Whoa Fat" over on Ace.

An English paper ran a story on the various insults that Pudgy Wudgy has handed out. He compared Obama to a monkey--said he was barely a member of the human race.

He said Hillary looked like an old age pensioner on a shopping trip. Guess he's not fond of bright colored pantsuits. OTOH Whoa Fat wears a lot of pant suits himself--and it looks like his mother (or barber) uses a bowl to cut his hair.

For my own take, Little Kim looks like the kind of kid who would have been beaten up for his lunch money every doggone day of his school life--if his Daddy wasn't the dictator of North Korea.

So let the good times roll--while they can--for this not so loveable Porky Norky.

John Maverick McCain has a long sordid history of stabbing his own caucus in the back. Too bad Graham had to learn the hard way, what we already knew, a grandstanding primadona who can not be trusted.

Tom Bowler,

I believe the democrats cannot face how much Obama was disliked, because to their minds he was such a "clean and articulate" black man, as Biden said.

They didn't seem to notice that at every opportunity he tore down the country and lectured the electorate like we were a bunch of misbehaving schoolchildren.

Then they followed him up by attempting to foist Hillary on us, who had the same characteristics except she was an old white woman.

Until they recognize this, they will go nowhere.

Jack is Back!

Bringing over from last thread:

All 50 state Medicaid directors are opposing C-G, so I don't think Collins is going to vote for it if she wants to be governor. McCain is no surprise because he is a duplicious,vengeful, spiteful coward who's time in the Hanoi Hilton is more urban myth than legend. I have had his cellmates and some widows in my home under the influence which leads to all kinds of revelations.

Trump will need 3 Dems so Pence can untie it. Actually, 4 if you count Rand Paul. C-G amendment will not even be voted on without those guarantees.

Captain Hate

McConnell has to make McCain suffer for this. Strip all committee assignments. Move his office to the basement. Slash his expenses, particularly travel to other countries, as much as possible. Just do it.

One of great devolutions of our Constitution is the purposeful intrusion of the Federal Government in every level of public, and even private, education. Although, I am suspect of an Article 5 convention, If it was only concerned with the 10th amendment, then I am for it. Acknowledge its abuse by the Federal Government, endorse it with unequivocal language and restore to the states and local governments their authority not contained in the Constitution.

In fact, I would love to see Betsy DeVos as the last Secretary of Education.

WashTimes: Sen. Ron Johnson, however, said the money would be reallocated to more evenly distribute the Obamacare funds since they disproportionately go to three states.
“It’s primarily taking all the Obamacare funding and turning those into block grants and sending those out to the states in a more equitable fashion. Right now, there are three states — California, New York and Massachusetts — they represent a little bit more than 20 percent of population yet they get about 36 percent of Obamacare funding. It’s simply unfair,” Mr. Johnson, Wisconsin Republican, said on CNN.

Make Trump state senators Manchin, McCaskill, Sherrod Brown, et al up in 2018 defend that.

I was wondering what narciso was talking about, thought it was related to the healthcare bill, but I think this is it:

http://dailycaller.com/2017/09/22/john-mccain-is-not-happy-with-his-republican-colleague-over-fbi-letter/

“Senator McCain has high confidence in Special Counsel Mueller and our intelligence agencies, and trusts they will follow all of the facts surrounding Russia’s brazen attack on our election wherever they lead,” Tarallo said.

She did not address the core of Grassley’s inquiry, that Russia-connected operatives may have attempted to infiltrate the Trump campaign.

McCain could butt heads wth Grassley on another matter.

The 81-year-old McCain is the only known lawmaker to have handled the anti-Trump dossier compiled by former British spy Christopher Steele. Grassley has led the charge on Capitol Hill to find out details about the document, which was published by BuzzFeed in January.

So Grassley's breathing down McCain's neck? I hope so!

I think McCain's sole motive is to screw Trump, which he has been trying to do since Trump announced he was running. I don't think he could care less about legislation.

On the Title IX vision obama created, I have been in meetings where university GC's spoke and they HAD to prove they were propagandizing this to every student. Many would not allow registration for spring classes, for example, unless students could show they had attended mandatory programs.

Unfortunately though a pAC has been created to sue on every ED reversal the bo appointees do not agree with. It was described as follows here:

"OBAMA ALUMS PLAN TO SUE DEVOS: Former Obama administration officials are the force behind a new legal defense fund that's dedicated to taking Education Secretary Betsy DeVos to court. The National Student Legal Defense Network, which launched on Thursday, will bring some legal firepower to defending Barack Obama's education legacy, which President Donald Trump and DeVos have largely sought to dismantle during the past eight months. The new organization plans to file lawsuits aimed at stopping the Trump administration's rollback of Obama-era higher education policies.

- "If DeVos continues to attempt to roll back student loan protections - such as gainful employment, borrower defense to repayment, Title IX protections - in ways that we think are illegal, we'll force her to defend those actions in court," co-founder Aaron Ament told POLITICO. Ament was a former chief of staff and special counsel at the Education Department during the Obama administration.

- The initial funding for the organization will come from the New Leaders Council, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, where it will be housed. But the group is also hoping to attract small-dollar donations through a "Fight Back Against Betsy DeVos" crowdfunding campaign. The legal defense fund will work with state attorneys general, legal aid groups and law firms that may take on cases pro bono. It's also planning to hire two or three full-time litigators in the coming months, Ament said.

- The legal defense fund will be run by an advisory board that includes James Cole Jr., former Education Department general counsel; Catherine Lhamon, Obama's Education civil rights chief who now chairs the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights; Jacek Pruski, former associate general counsel at the Education Department; Libby Masiuk, former senior adviser at the Education Department; Adam Skaggs, litigation director at the Law Center to Prevent Gun Violence; Tushar Sheth, former Vice President Joe Biden's deputy policy director; Seth Galanter, former deputy assistant secretary of Education for civil rights; Clay Barkley , former assistant attorney general of Kentucky; Clare McCann, an Obama Education Department official who is now deputy director for federal policy at New America; and Sujeet Rao, former deputy chief of staff at the Education Department."

narciso's 3:38 - "In recent weeks Ed has attended Eid prayer services at a local mosque; called for greatly lessening Virginia’s current penalties regarding marijuana possession and advanced a criminal justice reform agenda based on redemption and rehabilitation; and unveiled at an NAACP forum last week his “Striving for Impact” plan to address complex and interrelated social challenges. Ed has said clearly that “dreamers” who came to this country because of the actions of their parents should remain here, while dangerous MS-13 members who terrorize our communities and are here illegally should be deported."

But I'm not gonna bad mouth Gillespie....& I'll vote for him in the election.

--I think McCain's sole motive is to screw Trump, which he has been trying to do since Trump announced he was running.--

I think it's for the things Trump said about McCain in retaliation for McCain's initial sniping.
McCain's skin is so thin you can watch him digesting the crow he is constantly forced to eat.

McConnell could have solved the McCain problem back at the beginning of the year. He elected not to, probably because he wanted McCain to damage Trump but did not have the balls to do it himself.

Same thing with Murkowski. That is the weapon they use.

Primaries are our only answer. And even then, as we saw with Murkowski, they can get enough money for an independent run.

Davod, once again it is a question of timing. You are probably right as of now, having gone this long. But had it been done as part of forming the new Congress so that the newly elected president's, mandate and agenda could get off to a flying start, any control of McCain would have been lost in the noise and excitment of that time.

But that was not the GOPe plan so it was allowed to gather steam and fester which pleased the GOPe, and Trump elected not to confront the Congress about it or, well, anything back in those first months.

Reap the whirlwind.

Every state is probably different, but the process of nominating & winning a primary election against an incumbent or party candidate has to start really early.

The process was super convoluted here in Virginia to get Cuccinelli nominated.
Ya gotta get delegates & get them plugged into the system. We had a group that walked us through every line on the forms & made sure they made it on time. They offered to come to the house. Then everyone has to show up for the local party election.

The whole process is set up so the old guard runs the show.
Anyway....that's how it was in Virginia.
Over a year of set-up.

Boy, they hated the new tea party people.
It was awful when the old Republicans sold us out in the general election. It was awful.

I read McCain's statement. He says if it can't be bipartisan, marked up in committee and all that, then it's wrong to vote on it, "in good conscience." The same guy who campaigned for repeal, and knows that no Democrat will vote for any such thing.

In other words, he's an admitted scumbag.

Janet, if a New Tea Party were organized tomorrow and funded by a George Soros with the one goal of getting winning non GOPe candidates on the ballots in enough states and districts to drain the swamp and get the MAGA agenda through, that would have zero impact on 2018, and probably not enough impact on 2020 to make much difference.

From ManTran in the last thread:
I asked our lovely Bulgarian guide about doing the spit test given the 2500 yr history of factions marching back and forth through all the local fiefdoms and she admitted NO WAY! The reality would be too shocking. I'm guessing she had Turk and maybe Indian blood in there somewhere.

I had to laugh at your comment, because you grasped the issue precisely! I was born in Sofia,and had the good fortune of acquiring a genealogical chart going back seven generations from an uncle who kept it fanatically. So I did a DNA test recently, just to test their accuracy,, and it came back right on the button: 39-50% Eastern Europe, 34-50% Italy/Greece. BUT right at the end appeared an additional 4%-17% Caucasus! Your suspicions were correct: Greeks, Romans, Huns, Turks all marched their way through Bulgaria. A friend has said that it is one of the countries where it's almost impossible to definitvely identify as a native, compared to many other places. Gee, I wonder why???
