Another Martyr

She makes 80,000 bucks a year to do her job. Either do what you're being paid to do or resign, but quit whining about it.

The more I read about Kim Davis, the less I like her.

Restoring Greatness

I think America would be restored to greatness if we exiled 8,000,000 tea party conservatives and prominent Republicans. Like Donald Trump, I don't have a plan to make my dream a reality either

Just read a good column in the Dallas newspaper by Carl Leubsdorf about the Texas voter ID law, recently found to have discriminatory effects.

I'm positive that a voter ID law that didn't create any obstacle for any voter at any time would never have been challenged in the first place. Makes me wonder why the legislature didn't pass a law like that.

Poll Power

Donald Trump and Jeb Bush are the candidates who are attracting double-digit support among Republican voters. The Donald is still in the low 20s, and Bush is hovering around the 10-12 percent level. Scott Walker seems to be in third place at about 9.5 percent. Everybody else is in low single digits...

By my count, that makes 13 Republican assholes who should admit they're only in the game for the free lunches and quietly disappear. Then we could see Donald, Jeb and Scott going after each other mano a mano and settling the question of which one has the biggest testicles.

Kasich, Part Two

John Kasich is the kind of Republican who makes me nervous: very, very conservative but perceived as a moderate because he isn't as crazy as a shithouse rat. Republicans like that can win presidential elections (see George W. Bush) because they don't scare away moderate independent voters who like the idea of lower taxes and a strong defense.

Kasich is running for the 2016 Republican nomination, but Washington Monthly thinks he may be the next Jon Huntsman.

Huntsman was the last Republican running for president that I might have considered voting for. He lasted about 45 minutes in 2012.
