    you know things are getting weird when Bebe and Dick Cheney think you’re too extreme.

    Wait, Dick Cheney’s still alive?

    For years I have wanted to parody David Bowie’s Young Americans as Young Republican because that rolls off the tongue. Young Republican, young Republican, she wants the young Republican.

    But the song is rambling and long and even if I did manage to parody the whole thing few people would understand it. I’ll post a section of the original:

    Do you remember, your President Nixon?
    Do you remember, the bills you have to pay?
    Or even yesterday?
    Have been the un-American?
    Just you and your idol sing falsetto
    ’bout Leather, leather everywhere, and
    Not a myth left from the ghetto
    Well, well, well, would you carry a razor
    In case, just in case of depression?
    Sit on your hands on a bus of survivors
    Blushing at all the afro-Sheeners
    Ain’t that close to love?
    Well, ain’t that poster love?
    Well, it ain’t that Barbie doll
    Her hearts have been broken just like you

    Trump said yesterday that his “Muslim Ban” was just a suggestion. Sounds like he’s starting to walk-back some of his rhetoric now that he has the primary sown-up.

    I have to admit, I’m curious what the conservatives on the board think of Trump sealing up the nomination. I feel they’ve been uncharacteristically silent since the news broke.

    I’m still not ruling out a party revolt at the Convention. Maybe Cruze or Kasich know something and they’re keeping their powder dry and their campaign money in the bank.

    Can the party revolt if he has the majority of delegates going in? Aren’t they required to vote for him on the first ballot? Could they break that rule if they wanted to?

    never underestimate the power of hatred towards the Clintons, 2nd only to the paranoid hatred of Obama, to unify the Party of Hatred. GOP: got old people / gonna oppose progress

    To be willfully ignorant is to support Hillary.

    neither Trump or Clinton have anything to do with sanity

    Oh they’re both sane, they’re just crafty. I consider Hillary to be more qualified because of her experience as a Senator, First Lady and Secretary of State.

    How about the soon-to-be available Longaberger basket building in Newark as national headquarters for the Republican party, soon-to-be a basket case with Trump at the top of the ticket?

    her track record is one of disaster

    She isn’t sane, she’s a sociopath that knowingly supports a multitude of polices that are destroying this nation and is willing to lie about it in serial fashion to maintain her power and enrich her pocketbook while selling out the people of this country in the process.

    this absolutely the worst kind of person you want in government period

    Donald Trump is a calamity in waiting.

    His lack of policy awareness–nevermind experience, which could be compensated for with thoughtful demonstration of critical thinking skills or reasonable decisionmaking ability–is bad enough. It’s his forthright demonstration of a willingness to target women and children in the war on terror, ban Muslims from entering the U.S., demonize Mexicans, and subjugate women, all in defiance of decorum and/or law, that makes him an immediate threat to our nation.

    Secretary Clinton has flaws. Many. Her flaws are, at least, conventional, as were the flaws of many (but not all) of the GOP nominees that Donald Trump outmaneuvered during the campaign.

    Trump and Putin are already at it. This is a mural in Vilnius.
