    Nah! Sgt. Schultz was a better man, even as a NAZI.

  2. bron98 says:

    that is a good one.

  3. bron98 says:

    the above is one of my Hillary favorites.

  4. pete says:

    Guess that makes Rudy G “Colonel Klink”.

  5. Elaine M. says:


    Maybe Mrs. Colonel Klink. Remember Rudy in drag?

  6. Matt says:

    Yep. Chris Christie, with all of his faults (and he has plenty), is worse than a nazi. Mike playing the role of the jackass again.

      It was a joke son, but it gave you the pleasure of calling me a name, which I assume adds some degree of satisfaction to your life.

    Some people think it is a constant of the internet: in any web thread it is only a matter of time before Nazis enter the conversation.

    Well I think I have found another constant: among republicans it is only a matter of time before tax cuts for the wealthy enter the conversation. Johnathan Chait gives us the low-down on Chris Christie at:


    Here are a couple of key paragraphs by Chait:

    “Of course, Christie does not describe his plan as an enormous tax cut for rich people. The first rule of cutting taxes for the rich is that you don’t talk about cutting taxes for the rich. Here is what Christie says instead. He proposes to reform the tax code, cut the top tax rate to 28 percent, and reduce the bottom tax rate to a “single digit,” while maintaining deductions for mortgages and charitable deductions…. Any plan that meets those specifications would necessarily give a huge tax cut for rich people. In 2012, the Tax Policy Center attempted to model a similar promise by Mitt Romney, to cut the top tax rate to 28 percent and the bottom tax rate to 8 percent. It found that the revenue gained by eliminating tax deductions for the rich does not add up to enough to offset the revenue lost by reducing tax rates for the rich.”

    All I can say is that any guy that can figure out how to spend more than $80,000 on shacks at a foot ball game definitely has some original ideas and is thinking far outside the box.

    This spring I contacted Durrani and told him in detail what I had learned about the bin Laden assault from American sources: that bin Laden had been a prisoner of the ISI at the Abbottabad compound since 2006; that Kayani and Pasha knew of the raid in advance and had made sure that the two helicopters delivering the Seals to Abbottabad could cross Pakistani airspace without triggering any alarms; that the CIA did not learn of bin Laden’s whereabouts by tracking his couriers, as the White House has claimed since May 2011, but from a former senior Pakistani intelligence officer who betrayed the secret in return for much of the $25 million reward offered by the US, and that, while Obama did order the raid and the Seal team did carry it out, many other aspects of the administration’s account were false.

    http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2015/05/14/russ-feingold-senate_n_7279800.html Russ Feingold is running in 2016 against republican tea partyer Ron Johnson. It is a re-match.

  10. blouise17 says:

    I think Feingold has a real chance at success. Wisconsians are going to try and take their state back from the Wississippians.

  11. swarthmoremom says:

    blouise, I think he has a good chance. It is a presidential year and Hillary Clinton will probably win the state, also.

  12. swarthmoremom says:

    https://law.marquette.edu/poll/ “To look ahead to a possible 2016 presidential matchup, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton leads Walker in Wisconsin, 52 percent to 40 percent.

    In a possible 2016 U.S. Senate race, former Sen. Russ Feingold has the support of 54 percent of registered voter, leading incumbent Sen. Ron Johnson, who has 38 percent, with 9 percent not expressing a preference.”

  13. I. Annie says:

    Good news SWM!

  14. I. Annie says:

    Yes indeed we need to take our state back from the regressives. That would be “Wisconsinites”. 😉

    http://www.cnn.com/2015/05/14/politics/jeb-bush-confronted-college-student-isis/ “A college student on Wednesday confronted the former Florida governor and potential Republican presidential candidate, asserting, “Your brother created ISIS.” “

  16. blouise says:

    ‘The student also called Bush “pedantic” after he asked the student if she was planning to ask a question after she alleged Bush’s brother, former President George W. Bush, created ISIS.

    “Pedantic? Wow,” Bush retorted.’

    LOL Swoosh … Right over his head.

  17. blouise17 says:

    Poor Jeb has been surrounded by conservative CEO’s and teabaggers and it appears his gene pool graced him with the same intelligence as his older brother. Environment and genetics have come together to create yet another idiot. This campaign is going to cost daddy and friends a lot of money.

  18. Elaine M. says:

    swarthmoremom & blouise,

    Don’t you two gals “misunderestimate” Jeb. He’s supposed to be the brains of the family.

  19. swarthmoremom says:

    Crazy Ted Cruz is the “brain” that is running. Looks like Papa Bush was the brain in that family. It goes downhill from there.

  20. blouise17 says:

    He’s supposed to be the brains of the family. – Elaine

    Well, that’s according to his mother and if daddy had some brains then I guess we know who’s responsible for the dumbing down so I guess it follows that she’d think he’s up there with Einstein.

  21. blouise17 says:

    I can’t wait for the gold encrusted toilet CEO’s to start telling us how smart ol’wild Jeb is.

    Poor guy needs to follow the Dick Cheney mantra … when in doubt, smirk.

    excerpt from a much longer article:
    Jeb Bush’s CIA activities in Caracas under closer scrutiny

    Former Florida Governor Jeb Bush, the third member of the Bush family to aspire to the presidency, is under closer scrutiny for his “bank” work in Caracas, Venezuela, less than a year after his father departed Langley, Virginia as director of the Central Intelligence Agency. Bush started working as a branch manager and vice president of the Houston-based Texas Commerce Bank in Caracas as President Jimmy Carter’s CIA director, Admiral Stansfield Turner, began cleaning hose of many of the cohorts of Bush within the agency’s clandestine service. These included a number of Cuban expatriates who carried on their anti-Castro activities as part of a virtual “shadow CIA” established to stymie Turner’s reforms.

    The shadow CIA included a number of private sector operations, including banking, which financed shadow CIA operations in Latin America by laundering money for the Colombian drug cartels. While he worked for Texas Commerce Bank, Jeb Bush maintained close contacts with the anti-Castro Cuban community in Venezuela, as well as with the right-wing Colombian drug lords who supported their activities with cash and weapons. Jeb Bush’s work in Caracas made him steadfast friends in the Miami-based Cuban exile community, including real estate mogul Armando Codina, who Bush would partner with in a number of dubious real estate ventures after leaving Caracas and setting up residence in Miami.
