Trump is not the working class hero that many of his supporters and pundits insist he is

The blog was down for several days but thankfully our delightful adminis-tress has gotten it working again in time for me to say a few things about Trump’s allegedly presidential and pivotal day trip to Mexico and his later speech (in which he etch-a-sketched any pretense of a pivot) in Phoenix on Wednesday.

Man, the chutzpah on Catherine Miranda!

Here is another example of the kind of deceptive mailers going out for Catherine Miranda in LD27 in South Phoenix. This time it’s from Miranda’s own campaign. Michelle Obama?

The Notorious RBG laid down some truth about the racist orange buffoon currently running for President as the actual GOP nominee for that office and, of course, the Very Serious wags are Very Upset about it! Per James Freedland in the NY Daily News: The bed-wetting, pearl-clutching, hand-wringing very serious thinkers need to relax. Yes, […]
