    Yeah, some apps actually show off you're using an Android or an iPhone device. IIRC, the Android ones were actually him while the iPhone ones were a staffer.

    I don't think that is universally true, but in this case... He isn't called Cadet Bonespurs for nothing.

    To say the very least.

    For all the talk of Pelosi being a leader and there not being any rifts among Dems, over seventy Dems voted in favor of the funding deal.

    Three years ago, "Crazy/Stupid Republican of the Day" ran a profile of Dave Daubenmire, a former candidate for U.S. Congress in 2010 for Ohio’s 18th Congressional District who’s also a rabidly homophobic former high school football coach who was fired after repeatedly coercing players to participate in prayers and lost a lawsuit filed by the ACLU by several students and their families back in 2004. Daubenmire falsely claims he won that lawsuit as one of many instances where he bears false witness, despite of the fact that his self-righteousness motivated him to found “Pass the Salt” Ministries. Among the many, many patently deranged things Daubenmire has said through the years are that he wasn’t content to run for office, but wanted to “lead a revolution against those who oppose his ideals”, claiming that the hunt for the Tsarnaev brothers in the wake of the Boston Marathon bombing was the government “doing a dry run to see how martial law would work”, that Chemtrails are a thing and are chemical weapons sprayed on the populace to cause cancer and autism, and that President Obama is “either mentally ill or demonically possessed” and that all Democrats are “Children of Lucifer”. While you probably find all those statements enough to merit him certifiably insane, again, this guy’s a grade A bigot towards the LGBT community, having said that LGBT adults are “better off dead” and “homosexuals are gobbling up our kids”, declared “the most dangerous lifestyle in America today is homosexual behavior”, that Hillary Clinton “screams lesbian”, longs for the good old days “when being gay was a mental illness”, and has whined about how he’s tired of being “sodomized by the left”, and that gays have “stolen his manhood”.The less said about the bottomless pit of intolerance that is Dave Daubenmire, the better.

    In both 2016, and in 2017, “Crazy/Stupid Republican of the Day” published profiles of Rick Morris, a three-term member of the Virginia House of Delegates who was a big supporter of the anti-abortion fanaticism of former Gov. Bob McDonnell and former Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli, such as Virginia’s mandatory ultrasound bill, but also a Personhood bill that would have claimed life starts at conception. He cares so much about the human right to life that he also voted for legislation return the electric chair to a list of acceptable means to execute prisoners. He's also voted against not just gay marriage, but even adoptions by LGBT couples. In 2017 because Morris took to the floor of the Virgina State Legislature to compare abortion to slavery... and it seems that Rick Morris was arrested in September of 2016 on 11 separate charges of domestic abuse and child abuse, after he decided to go medieval on his 11 year old stepson with a belt, and trying to force him to stand in a corner for... oh, three days at a clip. Morris refused to resign, but at least had the sense to not run for re-election in the 2017 Virginia elections. He is now out of office, and we’ll set aside his CSGOPOTD profile at this time and go ahead and take a look at a different kooky Republican today instead. (Current crazy/stupid scoreboard, is now 646-25, since this was established in July 2014.)

    Patrick Meehan

    Today, “Crazy/Stupid Republican of the Day” is proud to present its 646th original profile, and in it, we’re going to be discussing the U.S. House Representative from Pennsylvania’s 7th Congressional District, Patrick Meehan, who you might not have realized was a Congressman since he was elected in the Tea Party Wave of 2010, and you might not have heard about how his district was gerrymandered by Republicans to guarantee his re-election several times.

    What you may have heard about lately in the news as the guy who sexually harassed a woman about four decades his junior because he thought she was his “soul mate”, and then after she won her case against him, he used taxpayer money to settle the case and tried to keep the whole thing hushed up. Obviously, when we heard the news that this creep wouldn’t be running for re-election a couple weeks back, we were relieved. Although, we had to laugh that he tried blaming his predatory behavior on the stress he was enduring because the Affordable Care Act continued to exist (really, he said that).

    But now, we will look at Meehan’s incredibly long, partisan record.



    Alas, Patrick Meehan was not near the front of our cue until all the talk surrounding him stalking his “soul mate” came forward, and using taxpayer money to settle that sexual harassment case. Current events led us here at CSGOPOTD to write him a fitting send-off. We're excited for 2019, where he no longer darkens the doors of Congress, a year that cannot come soon enough.

    Trumps recent tweet about due process is currently one of my faves considering his involvement with the Central Park Five.

    He also doesn't seem to know what the "three branches of government" are. The Democrats never "had" the Supreme Court.

    How about both. It’s common knowledge that Trump doesn’t bother reading information he’s given, so he accepts whatever bullshit he’s told by the henchmen in his cabinet of horrors, and when that’s not enough, he’ll take to Twitter and lie his orange ass off. The man is a menace, plain and simple.

    And I understand the "view" that you are talking about -- but my reply is that ignorance of the facts doesn't change the facts, especially when said ignorance is often selective.

    Even in your statement, you are saying that the general belief is that "white working class people" shouldn't complain, when that's never been the issue at hand: no one reasonably ever argues that white people have no right to complain just because they have white skin. Moreover, the problem with that kind of thinking is that it just further reflects how the individuals in question are more concerned with a perceived injustice (to "white people") than the real injustices that people of color often face in this country just because they are not white.

    Trying to make the argument about how "white people" are the ones being attacked when discussing racism in this country is a just a convenient way of avoiding having a real discussion about the subject at hand, whether intentionally or otherwise.
    I took your comment "Must be nice just to feel "alienated" by the concept of white privilege, rather than actually having to suffer the effects of it -- not to mention actually benefiting from it even as you continue to argue it's irrelevance." to be a potential dig at the concerns of working class white voters.

    As for ignorance of the facts (in this case, a technical definition of a sociological concept) it is largely a distinction without a difference. White privilege can technically refer to things that would apply regardless of social, political, or economic circumstances. It is not always used exclusively in that context by the media, and that can create the impression that a group that is suffering serious problems (high unemployment, less economic opportunity than earlier generations, and a declining life expectancy) is the privileged, and that addressing their concerns (and they are about 40 percent of the American population) is not a top priority

    His polling numbers did go down significantly after the October 7 release of the tape.

    It is also worth noting that the tape of things he said in 2006 wasn't released until he had been the nominee for two months. In the General Election, support for a candidate is less elastic because there are more significant differences between the two choices. The policy differences between Hillary and Trump were more significant than those between Trump and Cruz or Hillary and Sanders.

    Not as long as you think.

    I think ICE may be motivated more by being drunk on the power they have (and any restrictions being lifted) than by country of origin. Doesn't make it any less of a travesty.

    Ok, so...like I'm watching Meet The Press this mourning and they have Peggy Noonan on and they're talking about General Kelly perhaps leaving over his handling of the Porter situation. She said something every close to, "There's actually a lot of good people in Washington, but they're hesitant to work in this White House because they don't want to get the cooties on them."

    I just about died.
