- You know that Congressman Tim Murphy from Pennsylvania who resigned after trying to talk a lady into having an abortion brings back memories of Senator Joan Bray’s old quote about how some Republicans view abortion differently depending on whether a wife or a girlfriend is pregnant.
- Hat tip to Geoff Gerling who helped the Democrats make the Republicans work harder than they wanted to in SD 8.
- Also, a hat tip goes to Brett Dinkins, who ran the Cierpiot race. It was a tough race to turn people out on a cold random day in an off-year while having to go on the attack in a three way race, but he got it done. Looking around the nation at other races on Tuesday where republicans had terrible night makes his work look even more impressive.
- Kinda sad the way the proof is trickling out how the DNC cheated that old socialist last year. It’s almost like he thought Clinton would do all the work and pay for everything, but he would get an equal benefit…
- Interesting how the federal gub’ment came in and bullied St. Louis County from building an ice rink. He may be too busy these days but you really couldn’t script a better scenario for our new Attorney General to step in and show people what he meant when he promised to be a constitutional lawyer suing to keep Washington out of Missourah.
Lastly, I’m sure that Roy Moore is an awful guy, but I caught that Saturday Night Live skit about him. It was really more a window into how east coast liberal folks view us in middle America.Mostly as incest-having, illiterate, backward drains contaminating their good oxygen. In January, when you see the contribution lists of your favorite politicians, just know that when you see east coast addresses on those contributions, they are taking money from people who think you’re a product of illiterate, backward, incest having rubes that they would prefer never to contaminate their good oxygen.
