Mitch McConnell refers to Hillary as a Golden Girl

I can’t resist.  It takes one to know one.  Mitch McConnell was born in 1942.  Hillary was born in 1947.  So someone please tell me why he is cracking on Hillary?  Why is he cracking on Biden?  Biden is about 3/4 of a year younger than McConnell.

The bottom line is, he can say what he wants about men.  When he starts the ageist stuff with a woman, he is treading on thin ice.  It’s always been that way.  No wonder women don’t vote for Republicans.

McConnell should have known better.  The Kentucky Democrats are demanding an apology.  That seems a bit extreme.  Poor Mitch.  He thought he was being funny.

What else is happening at C-PAC?  I just didn’t have the energy to wade through it all.

Return of the Weiner?


Former Rep. Anthony Weiner, who resigned from Congress after misfiring a racy  photo over Twitter, spent more than $50,000 on polling in recent months,  according to New York City campaign finance filings.

The latest filing with the city’s Campaign Finance Board for Weiner’s  close-to-dormant mayoral campaign account shows he spent $54,000 on polling by  David Binder Research on March 5. He spent another $52,500 on the firm for  consulting work a day earlier, the filings show.

Weiner declined comment, and it’s unclear precisely what the polling was for.  The New York Post reported earlier this year on a polling survey being conducted  tossing Weiner’s name into the mix for city comptroller and for mayor.

Perhaps the former Rep. Weiner wants to run again for Congress.  The question becomes, will Anthony Weiner be forgiven for his rather obvious and large  indiscretions?   Should we expect our congressmen to not participate in sexting?  Is that too much to expect?

Will his little old ladies who made up excuses for him continue to support him?  If he wins the office he runs for, will he behavr himself?   What possesses a person to throw it all away on a naughty picture or two?



Republicans throw each other under the bus (and a few Democrats too)


The future of the Republican Party took some shots at its recent past on Thursday, as two top potential 2016 White  House hopefuls made a conspicuous effort to distance themselves from the past two GOP presidential nominees.

Speaking to activists at the Conservative Political Action Conference at National Harbor,  Sens. Rand Paul (Ky) and Marco Rubio (Fla) offered sharp, and only slightly veiled, critiques of Mitt Romney and John McCain, the two most recent men to carry the party standard in presidential elections.

“The GOP of old has grown stale and moss-covered,” Paul said. “I don’t think we need to name any names here, do we?”

Senator Feinstein gets a lecture from Ted Cruz

WARNING: Graphic simulations included regarding the Sandy Hook massacre.

Rachel Maddow reports on how much easier high capacity magazines made the massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary.  She takes us step by step though the 5 minutes where 30 people are killed.


Ted Cruz has the audacity to speak down to Senator Dianne Feinstein.  Cruz is no stranger to rudeness.

Dianne Feinstein’s bill that includes high capacity magazine restrictions as well as restrictions on certain weapons was voted out of committee by Democrats.  No Republicans voted for her bill.
