Re: "Why do liberals keep losing the gun control debate?"

Honestly, guys, it's not worth the effort. Whether Jeerleader likes it or not, the courts have been slowly chipping away at Heller ever since it was decided. While it's still considered (technically) good law, it's been distinguished so much that it's becoming a bit dodgy and that has the gun-nuts i...

That depends. Were any of them Democrats? Because ymbj only likes to think about Democrats doing bad things.

Re: Al Franken: Step Right Up! It's Your Turn!

And while we're on the subject, who is this Melanie Morgan who accused Senator Franken of "stalking" and "harrassing" her? Those are pretty loaded words, especially in the context of someone being accused of sexual misconduct. She laid out her accusations against Franken shortly ...

Re: Al Franken: Step Right Up! It's Your Turn!

Well, we've had almost a full day's worth of news to sort all of it out and I'm not going to defend Franken's behavior, but I'm also not going to compare it to so much of the other stuff we've seen in the news. CNN had an interview with Franken's accuser, Leeanne Tweeden, and I think it's probably w...

Re: Al Franken: Step Right Up! It's Your Turn!

I'm curious to see how Franken deals with this situation. If he forcibly kissed that woman and her recollection is accurate, he certainly needs a bit more forceful apology than what's been given so far. I'm not ready to call for his resignation just yet, and the wingnuts dredging up a lot of irrelev...

Re: GOP tax scheme Official Thread

Am the only one who wonders if Trump insisted on including health care in the bill to ensure that it won't pass? Maybe it's more important to the Trump/Bannons to primary establishment Republicans to purge the party than to get this bill passed. I don't understand the politics behind the individual...

I guess there's nothing technically wrong with the headline... it describes the short article and attached video quite well. Still, it seems like it could use a little help.

Re: Good Fellas and Ideology

It is interesting how quickly people forget what led to the current situation, and how they would rather go about pursuing their desires without recalling what happened. Jonny, I wasn't trying to be a dick about it. You actually ARE illustrating this problem. Rather than saying, "what Bill Cli...

Re: Good Fellas and Ideology

Good discussion! While exploring the notion of "goodfellas" in politics, ymbj takes a goodfella stance and blames Bill Clinton for everything wrong with the world and jonny comes back with his goodfella response that Bush is responsible for everything wrong with the world. It was an excell...

Re: They admit Russia meddled

Frankly, I don't think "Russia meddled in the election" is even news-worthy. Of course they did. They have political and financial interests to protect and they did what they were expected to do. What we want to know is whether there's some sort of quid pro quo going on between the Trumps ...

Re: Good Fellas and Ideology

I think ymbj actually inadvertently answered his own "question", if that's what it was. When faced with a shocking scandal, rather than direct his anger at the accused individual and the system which allows such behavior to go unchecked, ymbj (because he's a "good fella") looks f...

Re: Roy Moore bombshell

Unfortunately, this tests the limits of the GOP's propaganda machine. They're not happy about the Roy Moore situation, but they''ll get a good feel for how well they can convince complete idiots that they're still the "moral majority". And as a glimpse into just how crazy the Republican ba...

Re: Badgers Make Their Case for CFP

This season, and last season for that matter, have caused me to reflect on how lucky we are that Gary Anderson left. Thanks for quitting, coach! To this day I'm unsure why he was ever hired in the first place. And while I don't mean to throw shade on Chryst, based upon the performance we saw on Sat...
