Today was an extreme example of why we need to win Congress back...

If anything, to reclaim it from some gawd damned RWNJ lunatics.

Peter Strzok Testifies in Front of Congress on FBI/DOJ Actions During the 2016 Election (PART 1)

Warning: It's from Judicial Watch. So far they're the only people to post the whole thing.

Advance to 21:21 for the start.

Is it just me, or have the GOPr campaign ads gone off the deep end

It’s like they’ve all gone Hunger Games against each other.

Kentucky Governor: Black Kids Playing Chess 'Not Something You Would've Thought of...'

Kentucky Governor: Black Kids Playing Chess 'Not Something You Would've Thought of' in Black Part of Town

Michael Harriot

Apparently, astounded that all black children don’t spend their time shooting hoops or exploring new avenues of committing black-on-black crime, the governor of Kentucky regurgitated a small amount of previously digested racism when he declared how surprised he was that black kids could play chess.

On Tuesday, Republican Gov. Matt Bevin visited Nativity Academy at St. Boniface, a Louisville, Ky., middle school that is 86 percent black and only 1 percent white. Before entering, Gov. Bevin recorded a brief introduction for his Twitter followers.

“I’m about to go in and meet the members of the West Louisville Chess Club,” he explained. “Not necessarily something you would’ve thought of when you think of this section of town.”

The video montage, appropriately set to Appalachian banjo riffs, shows Bevin actually standing next to the blacks and imploring teachers to “give them the chance to succeed, to pursue the American dream.”


While I could point out how Bevin doesn’t give a damn about black kids or their dreams being that he supports Donald Trump, the Tea Party, the repeal of the Affordable Care Act, lowering the minimum wage, gun-toting teachers and the Blue Lives Matter law, I’d rather focus on a more important question:

What does Matt Bevin, and other white people expect from that “part of town?”

Well, The Root has obtained an exclusive copy of an internal memo circulated by the Bevin administration listing the top 10 things Gov. Bevin expects to see when he visits black schools:

10. Dance-offs: We’ve all seen the movies. When white people go to black schools, the first person they want to meet is the liberal, white woman who took a job at an inner-city school and saved the miniature negroes from a life of gangbanging by teaching them how to channel their anger and pain into the annual statewide dance competition usually dominated by nonblack students from the Becky Y. P. Pull Ballet Academy.


This is why some of us have trust issues

Time for another edition of "Oops"

Who's up for another Wednesday dance?

Extremely appropriate this Wednesday....

There's no going back...

The only thing that we can do is to make the best out of going forward.

The biggest surprise for me tonight was finding out that Satan hasn't yet taken Ed Meese home...
