      I love that you wrote yourself in – down under it’s usually Mickey Mouse who leads on the write in option (we don’t actually have write-ins – anything written on the ballot makes it an invalid vote – but Mickey Mouse does well regardless)

      first time in … forever I actually voted for a GOP candidate– woman campaigning against Tulsi Gabbard, who at least has the decency to run as a Republican, unlike TG, whatever party she is.

    I am so upset about this verdict in Oregon I can hardly stand it. This is such a picture of white privilege. I am afraid for our country.

      Two sets of laws marilyn – usually its the rich/poor but this seems to be white/others. This is why the yellow monster is getting so many votes – promising to ensure white privilege remains. Beginning to look like apartheid.

      GE MTM.

      Agree, could not have come at a worse time, with the #WhiteNationalist, #WhiteSeparatist #WhiteGenocide movement gaining strength on DJT deplorable candidacy, propped up by MSM.

      Makes no sense to me how these armed people who occupied federal land for over a month could be acquitted.

      This might help, but the further east you go in the western US, the more anti-government sentiment there is, so not holding my breath that NV verdict would be more just.

    Well, this verdict will certainly go far to disabuse Trump supporters of any nonsense following the election—-NOT! What the hell happened here? I get white privilege, but we all SAW this happening. This country has become insane.

      If the verdict had been guilty – there would be folks protesting (with guns) all over the place. So we have not guilty and the sane folks post on blogs, twitter, wonder about the sanity of the US, get told to “accept the verdict of a jury” & hope things get better. Funny that the orange horror supporters will accept the jury when it suits them but won’t accept the voters when they don’t like the result.

        GE 99ts.

        Can’t figure out how this happened, in one of the bluest (far left) cities in the US, Portland OR.

        Have read the AP report on what happened in the courtroom yesterday (one defendant’s attorney was tased because he demanded his client be released, but the court decided that the defendant must remain in custody because of the Nevada criminal charges).

        Justice has not been served — those anarchists who staged and carried out an armed takeover of a federal facility are now free to carry their #whitegenocide anarchy message to their heavily-armed supporters. (The Nevada case relates to the separate Bundy ranch standoff, not to the Oregon wildlife refuge takeover).

    Katy Tur of MSNBC earlier re-tweeted a pic of the runway where Pence’s plane skidded … showing what looked like gnarled concrete. Folks were starting to panic as though it were sabotage, but others were tweeting it was “EMAS”:

    Another unintended consequence of the carnival barkers run is that other sexual predators in high places who have gotten away for years are now on notice. Memories that many have repressed, have forced down so that they go on working and living, and trying to have healthy relationships despite what they have suffered, have come bubbling up. More women like the one who has accused Justice Thomas will be coming out and coming for their abusers. It is now their time to fear; karma is a bitch who will always get her due no matter how long it may take.

      GE NerdyW.

      Thanks for taking such good care of us, keeping us updated on the goings on in the world in addition to keeping up with the whirlwind schedule of PBO and FLOTUS.

      Very concerning development, especially in this deplorable season (MTMarilyn and I posted comments upthread about this).

      DJT suffers no consequences for his rhetoric inciting violence against anyone who isn’t white and straight, and neither do the #BundyMilitia who occupied federal land for over a month with thousands of rounds of ammunition.

    • 64 99ts

      And he didn’t address an issue – just attacked his opponent. This is the GOP – no policies, all they have are personal attacks – all of them and any of them.

      GM 57F.

      Did low voter turnout cause Illinois to elect Mark “you can only be DAR if you’re lily white” Kirk and your awful GOP Governor Rauner in 2010 and 2014?

      The same state that elected Barack Obama as US Senator in 2004 and voted to elect and re-elect him as President in 2008 and 2012?

      Or did local media help swing the off-year elections for two important leadership positions to 2 men who obviously do not have the best interests of all Illini at heart?

      Wonder if MSM will now see fit to recognize Mark “you can only be DAR if you’re lily white” Kirk *actual* (not “just” a dogwhistle for those who can hear it) racism fueling the campaign and supporters of this year’s crop of GOP?

      The other amazing thing to me is that Mark Kirk is one of the few GOP Congresscritters/Senators up for re-election this year who has NOT endorsed DJT, yet this high-profile, incorrect, irrelevant, personal attack showed his true colors (which means in his heart he’s as misogynistic and racist as DJT and his #Trumpaloons?)

      Hope this gets plenty of coverage between now and Nov 8 in Illinois — Tammy definitely took the “high road,” and ignored Kirk’s incorrect, irrelevant, personal attack — and wakes up MSM to the racism fueling this year’s bankrupt version of GOP candidates.

        Kirk won in a GOP wave 6 years ago. Yes, low turnout. Also, he’s rather adept at playing moderate around election time. He carefully casts a few sane votes to fool IL voters. It’s his career M.O. However, he’s supported McConnell’s tea party agenda a good 98% of the time; and signed that hideous letter about the Iran deal. He’s a snake. I want him GONE.

        Yes, his turning on Trump is only to fool IL voters. I was seriously concerned. I haven’t been able to send Tammy as much money as I’d like, and I haven’t been thrilled with her campaign ads. It’s the old Dem playbook where they don’t attack their opponents, and he’s got some devastating ads out there. And he appears in a wheelchair all the time, in every single ad. “See? I’m as infirmed as Tammy is.” It’s disgusting. She’s still doing well, though.

        This statement last night is the real Mark Kirk and it’s getting huge play here. IL can be dismal on turnout. This should help bring out Tammy voters.

        Very different election this year: Dems are embracing PBO big time, and GOP is trying to say they’re moderate and “independent.” There’s a sea of dark money, led by our miserable Walker wannabe governor, Rauner, who is making it all about the Democratic machine and his personal nemesis, Mike Madigan. Madigan’s a machine Dem snake, too, but he’s still a real Dem. His daughter Lisa, our AG, could have any job in IL she wants. When her kids are older, she’ll either be governor or Senator. She’s terrific.

    Reading that Alycee is recovering from pnemonia.

    Watching that last Vine of the guy making his bed 😂😹😹
    I have one sheet like that. For some reason I keep it and get re-surprised by its too short-ness every time I try to put it on the bed.

      GM GCL.

      I like the headline of the article “we are in for a pretty long civil war,” but reject the premise that DJT is the cause — the cause are the GOP themselves and their allegiance to the deplorables in their base.

      We must reject MSM’s effort to not call out the GOP seeking deplorable voters, nor their role in whipping up coarse displays of misogyny and racism from these same supporters.

      PBO is leading (had led) the way in demanding (in a good-natured way) accountability from the GOP since 2010’s MSM-promoted “tea party” (aka bring your gun to a rally, white people) events.

      GOP must realize that their ARE consequences to suggesting that coarse misogyny and racism have a place in electing government officials — DJT and his awful, worthless family must also be shown that there are consequences for just “making stuff up” to promote yourselves.

      P.S. Have not yet read Grunwald’s Politico article.

      I had just said to Mr. 57 that I was worried that Kirk could pull if off – his ads are hard-hitting and Tammy’s ads are rather generic. Frankly, I expected better.

      And then Kirk showed his true colors last night. Yea!

    Mike pence is a hero he saved millions perhaps billions last night stopping the plane that he was in…
    It was also learned that he is a nemesis of the X men . His name is Metallico… He has power over metal and can move things that are metal which is how he stopped this plane.

    Wouldn’t be surprising if Trump and his surrogates try to spin it in exactly that way.
