Democrats for a Day: Plutocratic Right Tries to Stop Trump

“The Club for Growth today noted that Donald Trump once tried to use eminent domain to evict an elderly widow from her Atlantic City home to build a limousine parking lot, and has repeatedly tried to use eminent domain as a tool of his development business.”


Pretty rich (see what I did there?) coming from a group headed by Aubrey McClendon, who has forced out numerous small businesses and torn down a historical landmark to carve out a greater swath of NW OKC for his Chesapeake Energy empire.

Aw, the knives come out. Can’t let the short fingered vulgarian take away the “thunder” from “legitimate” GOPer preznit candidates whoever the fuck they are.

@Mistress Cynica:
Yes, I’m shocked that the real assholes behind Club For Growth would do such a thing. Just shocked.

@ManchuCandidate: I watched bit of Hannity last night, that fucking fuck fuck fuckity fuckstick, and from all indications they have no clue just how weak their field is right now. I bet they lose the House over it. That, and the fact that their Governors are coming off as a bunch of Men’s Warehouse Crypto-fascists.

Too early to call, but I’m calling it.

@Tommmcatt is with Karin Marie on This One: Some poll out today suggests that on the whole, Americans can’t name a GOP presidential candidate — not even Trump. It is early.

@Tommmcatt is with Karin Marie on This One: Please God, let you be right about the common ruck of us recognizing the crypt0-fascists for who they really are before it’s too late, which I’m terrified it may be already.

@Tommmcatt is with Karin Marie on This One: Men’s Warehouse Crypto-fascists. Excellent.

I vote Reagan.

I think they have to have Mittens. The rest is a freak show. And he’s got Cockmentum.

@Benedick is not as stupid as he looks.: Yeah, but Mittens has haunting him the Ghost of Seamus the Irish Setter with diarrhea strapped to the roof of his car.

Plus he’s a Moroni. The biz-ness wing of the party can live with him, but not the teabaggers or the Xtian fundies.

@Benedick is not as stupid as he looks.: Mittens might actually survive if everybody else splits the idiot vote. In the end, depends on who’s actually on the ballot.

@nojo: He’s not electable nationally. This is why I’m predicting another four years of Michelle O as Hot First Lady.

Off topic, major league baseball took over day-to-day operations of the L.A. Dodgers today. Fans, crying with joy, are overrunning Chavez Ravine.

@nojo: The obligatory Obama-Mittens debates will be Grand Theater, and certainly what the networks demand – kind of like a Lakers-Celtics finals.

@Dodgerblue: Did they bundle in ownership of the Pirates, as well, by any chance? You wouldn’t believe how happy I am that the Buccos are this close to .500 coming up on May.

@Nabisco: Hah. We’re looking up at .500. Our closer is a nutcase and we only have 3 guys hitting the ball, one of whom is a raw rookie whose average is likely to drop after he goes around the league and the pitchers figure him out. A friend of mine says we should draft Koufax as our closer. And I’ll take Willie Stargell and Dave Parker if you don’t want them.

@Nabisco: Someone told me recently that they were a “Celtic,” so I asked if they were of Welsh ancestry. I wish that I had a photo of their expression.

@¡Andrew!: Hah!
@Dodgerblue: Wilbur passed on to the Extra Innings in the Skybox, but I caught Dave “Cobra” Parker at the home opener and he looked as good as any of the current starters, despite the fact that he came up in the Bigs with the current coach. As a matter of fact, seeing Tekulve, Candelaria, Parker and Manny Sanguillen lined up for the ceremonies I thought to myself “why not just start these guys?”

They lost of course.

@Dodgerblue: @Nabisco: Ah, geez, we’re gonna have to deal with this until October, aren’t we?

@Mistress Cynica: Not from me. My team is usually toast by May, after which there is no real Sport until that pedal fest around France in July.

@Mistress Cynica: In non-bat and ball action, I’m doing a “cast and blast” on Saturday in that I am taking my shotgun in case I see Mr. Turkey while Son of RML and I go scout out some mountain streams on the other side of Los Alamos to see they’re fishable yet. They should be. We had hardly any snow, so the runoff will be way down.

A “cast and blast” around here most often involves talking a .22 pistol or rifle while trout fishing up in the mountains in the fall in case any grouse wander by. They are not nearly as cute as penguins when you tickle them with the end of a fly rod.
