At about the one hour mark you will hear the Luntzer going berserker on war hero gobbledygook. As Trump answers Luntz goes off the deep end.

I wonder how many of the 15,000 crazies that saw Trump in Phoenix were veterans. Maybe a hero or two in the crowd McCain insulted?

Johns_Creek_Bill

McCain - a war hero but a horrible public official.

The King of Crass - just a horrible human being. His egomania is worse than King Three Putt's.

narciso

it was his Yeargh moment, 'I'm shocked, shocked, I tell you,

narciso

well that's reassuring I was worried for a bit,

henry

LOL narciso. That cash won't free up other cash, nosiree. He kept his hat but left his brain in the sun too long.

Sue

If you go around the web reading comments, I suspect Trump will only lose a point or two. His supporters are doubling down.

Threadkiller

Probably because his supporters watched the whole segment.

Sue

Which explains why Trump is explaining himself. The only place I've seen your excuse is here. They aren't looking for excuses.

henry

GOOOOAALLL!!!! Dempsey. U.S. 1. Cuba 0

Jeff Dobbs

The "whole segment" does not vindicate nor excuse Trump in the slightest.

MarkO

Internecine bloodletting pat. pending

Threadkiller

Complete vindication? So it is a purity test.

Luntz needed to shut up. Trump succeeded.

When do we check biographies of the 15,000 "crazies?"

Threadkiller

Who is "they," sue?

henry

Worse, it pushes the net roots bloodletting off the headlines.

Jeff Dobbs

Trump is running for the position of "Shutting Luntz Up".

"In the slightest" means purity or bust.

Threadkiller

Trump has won that position.

Luntz had no business acting like Andrea Mitchell in a Palin style ambush.

henry

GOOOOAALLL!!! Zardes. U.S. 2 Cuba 0

Threadkiller

I didn't know vindication had levels.

Jeff Dobbs

You should have. It's pretty basic to politics.

Threadkiller

:-)

henry

This will help. Yeah, insult Romney while you're at it.

Why would anybody listen to @MittRomney? He lost an election that should have easily been won against Obama. By the way,so did John McCain!

Can we agree to employ the Donald argument when he loses the nomination: We Never Have To Listen To Him Again.

Jim Miller

My second Michael Oren post is up. It has an amazing Obama quote that I had missed, or forgotten.

(My apologies for going off topic so soon, but I figure the previous thread is dead.)

Asking about govt employeees.

http://www.nationaljournal.com/tech/how-a-federal-employee-with-fake-diplomas-worked-at-the-department-of-the-interior-for-five-years-20150715

"Ahmed told investigators that the only formal education he ever received was at the Harvard Kennedy School, a program he attended after joining Interior and which the government paid for."

"An internal newsletter from 2011, published in response to a Freedom of Information Act request, announced that Ahmed completed the Harvard Senior Executive Fellows Program and returned to his job at the department from on May 15, 2011.

The program's website shows that the tuition for a session is $21,200."

The Infamous Ignatz

While I didn't too much care for Rick's specific comment re MM and Trump earlier we do seem to be at the the point where the world is sitting atop Trump's back.
What's holding Trump up?
It's Teh Donalds all the way down.

Wake me when it aint.

Threadkiller

I'm going to slide into a lurking mode.

There are people here that I do not wish to agitate. This whole Trump business is going to bust a lot of friendships. Unfortunately.

henry

GOOOOAALLL!!!! Johannsson. U.S. 3 Cuba 0

Rick Ballard

Ignatz,

You never know, Donald Kardashian may yet bite the head off a live Democrat, as per TM's title. I suppose we could discuss the merits of Jojo the Dog Faced Boy or the ease with which tickets to the Egress can be purchased while we wait.

henry

GOOOOAALLL!!!! Gonzalez US 4. Cuba 0

Strawman Cometh

Hill headline: Trump calls off his bet with MSNBC host
Those words you're using...: http://thehill.com/blogs/blog-briefing-room/248297-trump-calls-off-his-bet-with-msnbc-host

DebinNC

Trump called off his bet after O'Donnell cried "no mas". The Hill headline is misleading, of course.

Jim Miller

nenry - It's nice to see that the teams are color coded correctly, reds against whites.

(And, of course, that the reds are losing.)

Strawman Cometh

should I go with "I misplaced my sarc tag" or "no shit" or

DebinNC

I think Trump is currently providing a useful service by giving us the opportunity to gauge the reaction to his antics by the other candidates. So far, Scott Walker is doing great. The only thing I've seen from him re the latest is "John McCain is a hero." That's it, and that's enough. One reason McCain lost was that in the last months he was angry and sputtering, while BOzo was cool and calm. Jeff Greenfield wrote an apt piece about it, noting that Bugs Bunny always beat Yosemite Sam. Trump is allowing us a chance to discover the Yosemite Sams in our group before the primaries.

henry

Jim, the diversity of US goal scorers was nicely done.

GUS

Pure and simple. Cuba sucks. Obama swallows.

GUS

GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOAAAAAL DEMPSEY!!!!!!

henry

GOOOOAALLL!!! Dempsey pK. U.S. 5 Cuba 0

Gus, 4 Cuban starters defected before this game. : )

Rocco

I doubt I could cross the line and vote Republican. I have tremendous respect for McCain but I don’t buy the war hero thing. Anybody can be captured. I thought the idea was to capture them. As far as I’m concerned he sat out the war...Al Franken

http://www.salon.com/2000/01/10/voices/

Great minds!

GUS

Why Henry?? Why would they leave such a lovely shit hole.

Extraneus

GUS!

How do you keep all of your guitars humidified in the winter?

GUS

Cuba looks like shyte. I mean they look awful.

Miss Marple

I await Rick telling Mr. McGuire he is a Trump supporter in disguise.

henry

Lack of cigars in the locker room?

Jim Miller

henry - That reminds me of this old Cold War joke:

What do you call a Polish orchestra after it has comes back from touring the West?

A quartet.

GUS

I humidify my music room, I have a grand piano, and I keep many guitars in hard shell cases.

GMax

Holy shit 5 to nil. Who did Cuba beat? Cuz they must suck worse than Donald Trump on a three day bender...

Sue

Omalley has apologized for saying all lives matter. For reals.

GUS

I don't like Trump. I DO LIKE TRUMP PISSING all over the GOP establishment. Especially smug MOTHERFUCKERS like McCAIN.

GMax

Dempsey hat trick.

GUS

DEMPSEY AGAIN

henry

GOOOOAALLL!!!!! Dempsey ha trick. U.S. 6 Cuba 0

GMax

Could Major Garrett ask Zero if he knew any reason why Cubans would defect from a great socialist workers paradise? Hillary same question, if they can get her to put down the scotch bottle long enough to answer...

Gentlejim

Why the need for the Cuban players to defect from their workers paradise since relations have been normalized? Maybe they're coming to get car parts for that show I've seen about Cuban mechanics.

As far as McCain goes, Vietnam war-hero, post-Vietnam- not so much.

Sue

Why would we allow them to defect? And by we I mean Obama's administration? Wouldn't it jeopardize their friendship with the Castros?

Ho Chi Mean

F McCain and the plane the dummy crashed in on.

GUS

Ooooooh that Cuban player asked for Dempsey's Jersey.

30 DAYS IN THE COOLER FOR HIM, when he gets back to CUBANISTAN!!!

henry

How could Obama say no to dreamers Cubanos?

Jim Miller

Most of you know this already, but I didn't, so I'll post it here for others who share my ignorance:

CONCACAF = "Confederation of North, Central American and Caribbean Association Football"

Jeff Dobbs

Jim:
CONCACAF = "Confederation of North, Central American and Caribbean Association Football"

All I see is

CON
CACA
F

Which is Spanish would mean something like.......

Rick Ballard

Sue,

The Cuban Adjustment Act is still in force and gives Cuban refugees permanent resident status beginning one year after their "dry feet" arrival in the US.

I suppose BOzo could flout this law as readily as he does others but it's still in force and well known by Cubans.

GMax

Concacaf = slightly less corrupt than some of the other regions of FIFA. See also Seth Blather

Sue

Rick,

They better hurry and get here. Obama might just now be hearing of that law. He reads newspapers you know.

GMax

Right. The problem for Zero is he does not have enough "flexibility" with established law. Dry foot arrival means you have dominoed. Its still an opportunity to embarass Zero and the socialists...

Rick Ballard

Sue,

There are already calls for repeal and Cubans may well be "hurrying" to get out of the gulag while the door is still open.

I don't give repeal much of a chance of passage but hellhole inhabitants may weigh risks quite differently.

GMax

He reads newspapers you know.


Dont forget he has a pen and a phone...

Rick Ballard

Brand new ones, too. Ayatollah Rohani has all the old ones plus cuff links and a year's supply of US flags to burn.

Sue

Watching baseball game and its throwback to 80s for some asinine reason. I don't know whose uniforms are uglier. The Rangers or the Astros. Gak!

Jim Miller

Sue and Rick - A month or so ago, I read that the better Cuban baseball players had millions of reasons to get out now, because now they can sign as free agents -- but at some point, they will be in the draft, instead.

I have no idea whether soccer has similar rules.

The Infamous Ignatz

Barry locks up 1,000,000+ acres in new Nat Monuments.
Very familiar with the CA one. Nothing special and no good reason to lock it up. Period.
Slightly familiar with the NV one. Ditto.

GUS

I'm sure MLB and the NFL are already selecting sites for their new Stadiums in Cuba.

henry

Send them the Bucks. Add Castro skulls to Walker's pile.

Sue

I don't know much about soccer. Period.

Cheese Sped

Walker is a spineless little bitch (and he seems to have a bald spot).

""He needs to apologize to Senator McCain and all the other men and women who have worn the uniform," Walker told reporters following a campaign stop in Sioux City. "It's just a disgrace.""

http://www.jsonline.com/news/statepolitics/scott-walker-takes-on-donald-trump-b99540393z1-316915081.html

My 2016 vote:
1) Cruz
2) Trump
3) Sit it out

(by the way, it is not that difficult to pass what you want when your party controls both houses in your state).


Sue

Wow cheese, you should have gotten here sooner. You would have had a friendly face in the crowd, so to speak. Alas, he went on a self imposed sabbatical.

rse

Anthony Kennedy's foolish legal opinions threw this debacle wide open. http://pjmedia.com/tatler/2015/07/18/obama-administrations-racial-database-contains-your-personal-information/

This fits with the language I am seeing out of federal agencies and their declaring of rights without a statutory basis.

Threadkiller

He went lurking, dipshit.

henry

Trump is recycling Al Franken's jokes, his main political skill is stepping on his own anatomy. Granted his feet are big enough that he occasionally steps on the GOPe, and less often the progs.

The Infamous Ignatz

That O'Malley thing is funny.
The Democrats are like Stalin v Trotsky except they replaced the ice pick with tweets so it never ends.

Sue

@Popehat: Today in 1969, Senator Edward Kennedy hosted a fun cook-out and party, had a few drinks, and met a lovely girl.

h/t Popehat on twitter.

Extraneus

Walker figuring it's a good time to attack Trump? Maybe he's right. He's no fool.

The Infamous Ignatz

Corrected your typo henry.
You're welcome. : )

Professor Julius F. Kelp

"He's no fool."

What was his 4-year college GPA? Graduate school GPA?

I'd compare it to Obama's but he hasn't provided his either.

DebinNC

Walker describing Trump's statement as a "disgrace" and opining that "he should apologize" seem reasonable responses, not "attacking", imo.

GUS

Exactly Professor Fukwad. He has not supplied those things.
He's no fool.

Man Tran

Re McCain and the Hanoi Hilton, I obviously have no direct knowledge, but I've had private conversations with both Bud Day and Leo Thorsness and they both get a pained look and STFU when Juan's name comes up.

The Infamous Ignatz

Cheese Sped is manifestly developmentally disabled but Walker would be well advised to focus on important stuff and let someone more expendable stand in front of the impending train wreck known as Donald Trump.

DebinNC

McCain's been ranking member and now chairman of the Senate Armed Svcs Committee during all of BOzo's time in office, which has revealed a series of incredible revelations/scandals re the VA. I don't remember McCain bringing any of them to light or using his position to right the wrongs or end the abuse. Every week brings a new horror, today's that the the VA doesn't know how many of the 9 million vets in their "care" are dead.

The Infamous Ignatz

GPA is a measure of foolishness?
Some of the biggest fools I ever met were tops in their classes.
