Re: “After Shooting, Kustoff Sees "Reset" of Bipartisan Feeling

Trump: "And he lined up the 50 people and they shot 49 of those 50 people, and he said to the 50th, you go back to your people and you tell them what happened -- and in 25 years there wasn't a problem."

Kustoff: [-burp-]

Typical responses thus far by the Flyer lemmings. That was to be expected.

Re: “After Shooting, Kustoff Sees "Reset" of Bipartisan Feeling

There's no bipartisanship on the Internet. Conservatives are pooping themselves with excitement that there's finally a liberal bad guy that they can point to. We all know how much the conservatives love to play the victim.
But I doubt their good times will last. There's already another, deadlier shooting to talk about. I can't wait to find out this shooters party affiliation.

Trump: "Hillary wants to abolish -- essentially abolish the Second Amendment. By the way, if she gets to pick, if she gets to pick her judges, nothing you can do, folks. Although the Second Amendment people, maybe there is, I don't know."

Re: “After Shooting, Kustoff Sees "Reset" of Bipartisan Feeling

Trump: "Sometimes we talk a little bit tough. When I see somebody out swinging his fists, I say, Get em the hell out of here. Were a little rough. Journalists hate to hear that. 'Why did you act so viciously toward that young person that was really protesting? See he wasnt protesting. He was swinging. He was vicious. And you know what? They took him out. That was OK that day."

Re: “Looking Ahead: The Electoral Picture

I heard someone say Strickland is "brilliant at the bullshit"

Note how his radio campaign has doubled down since the weaknesses in his nashville-based gentrification policies have been exposed.

We need a strong mayor from the urban core that will stand up to Nashville, not an east memphis Nashville lapdog from the suburbs.

Memphis for Memphians is the only way to prosperity.

Re: “Looking Ahead: The Electoral Picture

We are victims of a man who lacks any vision beyond being "brilliant at the basics". This is our rallying cry to compete with other cities. Sad.

Re: “Looking Ahead: The Electoral Picture

We are all good, Jackson. I have a son in transit flying back today from half a world away (school trip in the United Kingdom for 2 weeks) and I am sure he will be sleeping for several days afterward. Thank you for the correction and I do hope you find those glasses! I often find mine misplaced on my head or hanging from the button seam in the shirt I am wearing.

Re: “Looking Ahead: The Electoral Picture

Hey, Emily, thanks for the lifeline! Of course, of course. There's an old saying: Even Homer nods. If the old Greek bard lived in our time, he'd probably have jet lag, too. That, plus a power outage upon return from half a world away and absorption in a cover story, increased the nodding in this case. I had also misplaced my glasses and was writing through squints. (Not claiming to be Homer, btw, unless Homer Simpson.) Fix made. And, again, my thanks. And mes apologies to Julie and David, both of whom I know right well.

It's Julie Byrd Ashworth (not Ashcroft) and David Lenoir (not Lanier).

Ooops! Thanks for the correction. (Short-term memory musta shorted out.) Note that, as of today, you're still powerless. Bummer. Good party, under the circumstances.

We were glad you could be there, Jackson! It was on Sunday, though. :) And, in an update, we are still down, but MLGW says a crew is working on it!

Re: “Reinventing the Wheel

They need to worry a lot less about which candidates get support and who they endorse and focus on registering new voters and driving turnout once the election cycle starts. If they register enough people and get enough people to the polls during primaries and ealry vote the support from the party will maybe follow (I say maybe because with the distinction, to put it lightly, there, it's not a guarantee).

Re: “Cohen Reacts to Comey Firing

I think when the dust settles, ex-FBI Director, Robert Meuller will have nipped and supped more on Democrat whale carcasses than the alive and sitting "Orange Tweeter".

In fact, if I were Susan "a video caused the Benghazi murders" Rice, James Crap...er...Clapper, John Podesta, Hillary and the rest of the D.C. Uniparty vermin of liars, ideologues, schemers and propagandists, I'd be booking flights to non-extradition countries.

"The Russians are coming, the Russians are coming!"

No, indeed not! "Justice is coming, justice is coming!" LOL !!!!!!!

Re: “Cohen Reacts to Comey Firing

...In other news, a Special Prosecutor has been named, and his name is Mueller. He will be the shark who is designated to swim closest to the whale. Will he nip? Will he bite? Will he disembowel the hapless Orange Tweeter? Hang on to your hats kids, it's about to get exciting.
