Today’s Campaign Update (Because The Campaign Never Ends) – 3.27.2017

  • The Senator From the News Media is quickly becoming the Senator From the EU:  Cranky old John McCain went off on President Donald Trump overseas again, this time at The Brussels Conference, attended by most of the leadership of the European Union and NATO.  The Senator criticized the President on foreign soil for his insistence that EU nations actually begin paying their fair share of their own defense, for which the United States taxpayers have footed the lion’s share of the bill since the end of WWII.  He also whined that he hasn’t been invited to meet with President Trump since he became President.  Gee, wonder why?
  • Yeah, uh-huh, sure, you betcha, Joe.  Now, have some Metamucil.:  Joe Biden told an audience on Sunday that he “probably could’ve won” last year’s election against Donald Trump.  In saying that, he joins 17 failed Republicans and one massively failed Most Corrupt Woman in America.  It’s a big and growing crowd.
  • Another pro-Trump rally, another clash with masked thugs.:  This is becoming a weekly occurrence.  A bunch of pro-Trump people get together to show their support for the President;  they are then set upon by a bunch of violent thugs wielding pepper spray;  and the fake news media then feigns shock that such a thing could happen, even though this is exactly the sort of behavior among leftwing idiots that its own coverage of Donald Trump sanctions each and every day.  This past weekend it happened in Huntington Beach, CA;  next week, it will happen somewhere else.  The beatings will continue until morale improves.
  • Back when America’s leftwingers knew how to conduct a peaceful demonstration:   Althouse.com reminsces on its blog about the fact that 10,000 Americans congregated in Central Park on March 26, 1967 to celebrate a “Human Be-in.”  The Grateful Dead played, and Timothy Leary distributed vast quantities of LSD.  No one shot anyone else with pepper spray.  CNN didn’t exist.  Coincidence?
  • Wait, what?  Who, me?  No way!  It was that other guy!:  And the blame falls to the Freedom Caucus, as it should.  That group of GOP doctrinaire conservatives were the consensus choice on the Sunday morning talk shows for who should bear most of the blame for the death of the Republican “repeal and replace” bill.  Practically the lone dissenter on this view was Ohio Rep. Jim Jordan, who is the leader of that group of my-way-or-the-highway by-God conservatives.  Even though everyone in Washington knew the Freedom Caucus had the killing of this bill as its one and only goal in this process, Rep. Jordan was mysteriously reticent to take credit for his victory.  Maybe that happened when he woke up Sunday morning with the realization that he gets to take credit for saving federal funding for Planned Parenthood in the 2018 mid-term elections.  That should be fun.

Just another day in blame-deflecting America.

That is all.
