    And now, a brief but important message, brought to you from the good folks who make Cool Mint Listerine: . . . 

    "Best Sex I've Ever Had" — Marla Maples, February 16, 1990

    "Best sex I've Ever Had" — The Mapleaires*, June 12, 2017**

    *(EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt, Defense Secretary James Mattis,  Department of Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly, US Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, Small Business Administrator Linda McMahon, Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats, Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke, Education Secretary Betsy DeVos, Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross, Energy Secretary Rick Perry, Housing and Urban Development Secretary Ben Carson, Labor Secretary Alexander Acosta, Veterans Affairs Secretary David Shulkin, UN Ambassador Nikki Haley, Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin, CIA Director Mike Pompeo, Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao, Attorney General Jeff Sessions, Office of Management and Budget Director Mick Mulvaney, Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue, Health and Human Services Secretary Tom Price, Vice President Mike Pence — their actual, vomitus-inducing, knob-gobbling statements at: https://www.google.com/amp/s/amp.cnn.com/cnn/2017/06/12/politics/trump-cabinet-ranked/index.html)

    ** June 12, 2017 — " . . . a day that will live in infamy."

    Cool Mint Listerine — Remember, nothing will ever remove that awful taste of (Donald Trump) sexual shame and humiliation from your mouth, . . . 

    . . . but Cool Mint Listerine won't make it any worse than you already have (and it tastes somewhat better than kerosene)!!!

    Trumpstink index opens at 8.7 with occasional gusts to 9.5.  Human nostrils dissolve at 6..

    Trump stink from syncophants praising their Lord can be as much as three times as noxious as that naturally emanating from the pussy grabber.

    “Glorious historic electoral majority” peels paint and can permanently lower IQs to level of Pepe the frog.

    Stay upwind my friends.

    Oh, that subversive Shakespeare.

    The Public Theater of New York produced a free public showing of "Julius Caesar", which, in case you forgot, depicts the assassination of Caesar by Brutus (et tu, Brute), and cronies. The message of the play is not to go our and solve your social problems by murdering your local tyrant; it's more  like, violence begets more violence. Duh- of course violence begets more violence. You have to end up with a pile of bodies at the end, or it's not a Shakespearean tragedy. And the fatally flawed hero and the tyrant all get served justice in the end, too.

    This particular production, though, modernized the costumes and setting to kinda seem like Trump and co. And the conservative media is losing its mind, all kinds of boycotting and chest-beating going on.

    It's being used as an excuse to deny funding for the arts – like they hadn't already planned to do that.

    Sessions wanted to personally prosecute medical cannabis providers. Medical? Okay, now is this some kind of vendetta or is he just a tight-assed sumbitch?

    First Amendment means what Mitch McConnell wants it to mean.

    Journalists told they are "no longer allowed" to wait outside hearing rooms, interview Senators, or film in hallways.

    If the Capitol is shutting down the people's eyes and ears through restricting the media, my guess is that they're in for a Wisconsin or Colorado or  North Carolina-style protests in the halls of the lawmakers..

  6. notaskinnycook says:

    They're just following in Fearless Leader's footsteps. I see a protest coming, alright, but it's likely to be at SCOTUS rather than in the halls of Congress.

    Will this help or hurt in CD-7?

    Colorado Democrats Williams and Pettersen get kudos from Americans for Prosperity

    The two will be thanked in an upcoming ad campaign, along with two Republicans, Sens. Owen Hill of Colorado Springs and Rep. Lang Sias of Arvada, for sponsoring of House Bill 1375, which divides up public school funding equitably, funding charter schools the same as any other public school.
