aca_signup_dates_reminder

Thank the Russian Puppet for all he’s done for us by enrolling someone you know.

Then call your congressional Representative and Senator and tell them:

  • Keyword: Protect My Obamacare
  • Keyword: Oppose the Tax Cuts and Jobs Bill
  • Keyword: See You At The Ballot Box

Always remember Congressional Representatives are easier to influence than Senators.

Phone Calls Work!

This is Nuts, Part Infinity

More Exciting News From Trump HQ!

Seriously, why doesn’t Comrade Preznint Stupid just say “$20, same as in town.” I don’t think I’ve ever seen anything like this. He’s an immature, immoral moron. He is always attacking women, especially those who are not intimidated by him. I would say it is a pathology and add it to his other deep personality flaws.

Also/too: this is sexual harassment.

Sen. Gillibrand responds:

Comrade Stupid wants to go the moon, we applaud this idea. That said, it’s bringing him back that bums me out.

‘Billions for Billionaires’ Bill Going Nowhere Fast or Slow

The Republican Party Takes Flight

Hey guys, remember about 4 days ago when we said that the Billions for Billionaires bill was another Kobayashi Maru for the Republicans?

Tiger Beat on the Potomac (thanks Charlie!) morning email thingie tells us (emphasis mine):

CRUNCH TIME ON TAXES — “GOP lawmakers struggle to close gaps in tax plan,” by Bernie Becker, Aaron Lorenzo and Seung Min Kim: “Top congressional Republicans, racing to hammer out a final tax agreement by the end of the week, have yet to make any breakthroughs on a range of key issues. House and Senate negotiators bounced proposals back and forth over the weekend, but said Monday that they still had to find compromises on where to set the corporate tax rate, how to treat millions of businesses that aren’t set up as corporations and how much of a deduction to allow for state and local taxes.

“‘We speak of little else these days,’ said Senate Majority Whip John Cornyn (R-Texas). On the House side, Ways and Means Chairman Kevin Brady (R-Texas) deflected questions about a slew of potential trouble spots, also including the estate tax, the Alternative Minimum Tax and the fate of an existing law barring churches and other tax-exempt groups from openly politicking. Asked Monday what differences the House and Senate had resolved, Sen. John Thune (R-S.D.) responded: ‘Well, nothing really.

“‘I don’t think you can say at this point anything is really nailed down,’ added Thune, a member of GOP leadership and the tax conference committee working to settle the chambers’ differences. ‘But I think the way it’s shaping up right now, I feel like we’re getting pretty close, and every time that we have an exchange of offers the differences are narrowing.’”

As we noted in another post this morning: the Alabama election is today and the victor will be seated after December 20. This means that Sen. Luthor Strange’s vote will be going away to be replaced by Jones or Moore. Republicans are gonna be in full panic mode the longer this thing takes.

Kayla Moore: ‘Some of our best…’

“…attorneys are jews,” she didn’t say, but damn, that was close enough to that old chestnut to make my neck hair go straight up.

‘Forget about it Jake, It’s Alabama’

It’s not the size of the gun…

Alabama law requires all ballots to be kept for six months after an election, and a newly filed law suit argues that digital ballots are included in that legislation.

Scissorhead GRS points out that Judge Roman Ashley Shaul granted an emergency injunction ordering Secretary of State John Merrill (R) and State Administrator of Elections Ed Packard (D) to keep everything for at least six months.

However, Scissorhead Osirisopto points out that the Alabama Supreme Court (of which (ALLEGED) kiddie-diddler Roy Moore used to be a member) has blocked the earlier ruling:

“The only Defendants to this case—Secretary of State John Merrill and a member of his staff—do not have authority to make changes to voting machines or to require local officials to do so,” the state’s brief said. “It [Monday’s earlier court order] purports to order Counties, which are not parties, to take action that the Secretary believes is impossible to complete before the election and which will disrupt the election. The order will cause confusion among local election officials who are not party to this suit and who will be unsure of their obligations.”

Given the dynamics of today’s election in Alabama, everyone should be worried about fuckery. The AL.com article (linked above) tells us,

“The Department of Homeland Security notified our Secretary of State here that Alabama is one of the 21 states that had been targeting for hacking of election systems,” she said, referring to this year’s special election for Georgia’s 6th congressional district.

…so there could even be, ahem, outside fuckery most heinous. But here’s what we can bet on: if the vote is anything less than a landslide for either candidate, there will be a recount, and without an electronic record this thing will become a masterclass in ratfucking.

UPDATE 1: Why this matters. Republicans need to pass the tax bill before the new senator gets seated, sometime after Dec. 20. Stay tuned.

The honorable, disciplined, morally straight, and highly principled Roy Moore

Good lord, Roy Moore went to a kiddie’s brothel in Vietnam, but was so highly principled that he left, but left his buddy there WHO SAMPLED THE GOODS.

And Possum Hollar applauded. I think I’m going to go barf now.

This Was Nuts

🎶 Here She Comes, Possum Queen, Elmira Gantry! ♬

“[Elmer Gantry] had, in fact, got everything from the church and Sunday School, except, perhaps, any longing whatever for decency and kindness and reason.”

The wisdom of the Scissorheads is beyond doubt: when you dubbed the Possum Princess Elmira Gantry Huckabee-Sanders, you really knew what you were doing.
