  1. Van Jones on the Clinton campaign – Ouch.

    “First of all, I don’t mean to be rude — and I don’t mean to offend anybody,” Jones said. “But the people who ran the Hillary Clinton campaign did not spend their money on white workers, and they did not spend it on people of color. They spent it on themselves. They spent it on themselves, let’s be honest. They took a billion dollars, a billion dollars, a billion dollars, and set it on fire, and called it a campaign! That wasn’t a campaign. That’s not a campaign.”

    “A billion dollars for consultants,” he added. “A billion dollars for pollsters. A billion dollars for a data operation, that was run by data dummies who couldn’t figure out that maybe people in Michigan needed to be organized.”

    1. Welcome back.  We thought we'd lost you,  Love it that you've been reduced to quoting Van Jones.  Did that sting just a little?  Unfortunately all we got for those billions was a popular majority vote. Damn that slave-era construct, the Electoral College. Both sides got what they paid for; Merrika (the rural parts that think the Yam is on their side) is the real loser. Here's some SmellyAnne quotes I know you'll enjoy…

       

      1. I think it's funny that Andrew is reduced to trying to again drag out the Hillary campaign in a feeble attempt to distract attention away from his man, The Donald.

          1. Eventually, Carnholio will start denouncing Martin Van Buren.  Just keep deflecting, shill boy. You can't say anything positive about the liar in Chief.

  2. Just wondering of late . . . 

    When all is finally said and done in Trumpanovitchgate . . . 

    . . . will that Ronnie Raygun Cold War "Mission Accomplished" banner still be flying???

  3. Even Chuck Grassley needs a shower…

    A Republican senator wrote Trump a brutal 6-page letter to inform him the new policy on oversight requests is 'nonsense'

    lengthy and critical letter landed on President Trump's desk this week from one of his fellow Republicans, Sen. Chuck Grassley (Iowa). Grassley, who chairs the Senate Judiciary Committee, wrote to let Trump know he's livid about the Office of Legal Counsel's "nonsense" new policy that directs federal agencies to only address oversight requests from congressional chairmen — not from rank-and-file members or even ranking minority members. Because only Republicans are committee chairs right now, that essentially translates to an order "to ignore oversight requests from Democrats," the Washington Examiner wrote.

    "Shutting down oversight requests doesn't drain the swamp, Mr. President. It floods the swamp," Grassley wrote, explaining that his experience has proven that "a partisan response to oversight only discourages bipartisanship, decreases transparency, and diminishes the crucial role of the American people's elected representatives."

      Hmm, after reading Grassley's letter, Trump's lackeys probably congratulated themselves as "mission accomplished", right Gerbils?

  4. Just a reminder: Mike Coffman has a tellie-town hall on Wednesday at 6. He released a statement chastising the Justice Department for not prosecuting the VA officials responsible for the $1 Billion cost overrun. They lied! So they should be prosecuted. Funny that this logic does not extend to his boss or anyone in the Trump cabinet currently.

    And yeah, don't hold your breath on that shiny new VA hospital. It will likely be finished in early 2018, but staffing up – especially if the Trump defense budget continues to cut medical care for veterans – will not be quick or easy.
