In case you somehow could NOT know this, I should point out that this is Marsha Blackburn, who may be the scariest of the whole gang of miscreants on this list. She DEFINITELY is a member of the Trump/Kavanaugh party. She’s running to replace retiring fellow Repug Bob Corker.

To help her Democratic opponent Phil Bredesen, click here (and in a related story, as they say, kudos to Taylor Swift for this).

Update 10/29/18: Sounds like the Democratic “rabble” was acting up again – Heaven forbid anything interfere with Queen Marsha’s photo-op (here).

Texas

DJT_Donald-Trump-Ted-Cruz-Texas

I’ll bet you’ll never guess who this mug is. And yeah, Ted Cruz, as low a lowlife biped as ever walked upright, a charter member of the Trump/Kavanaugh party, is seeking another term.

To help Cruz’s Dem opponent, the truly electric Beto O’Rourke, click here.

Utah

T_R_161119173115-trump-romney-t1-1119-exlarge-169

And well well, it looks like Willard Mitt Romney is back, seeking to replace the fossilized retiring Trump/Kavanaugh party member Orrin Hatch, who I guess can now be sickeningly sanctimonious in his spare time.

To help Romney’s Dem opponent (and yeah, I know the odds are long here) Jenny Wilson, click here.

Update 10/11/18: So, then, the whole fiasco with Bill Clinton way back when was just a figment of our imaginations, Willard Mitt (here)?

This is Patrick Morrisey (no relation to the singer, I wish to emphasize). He is a member of the Trump/Kavanaugh party.

To help his Democratic opponent, incumbent Joe Manchin, click here.

Wisconsin

Vukmir_Gingrich

This is Leah Vukmir. She is a member of the Trump/Kavanaugh party (and she has a poor choice of friends aside from the Gropenfuhrer, as you can see).

To help her Democratic opponent, the terrific incumbent Tammy Baldwin, click here.

Update 10/24/18: Yep, a Trumpette through and through (here)…

Update 10/26/18: I am SOOOO going to enjoy watching Vukmir go down in flames, as it were, for this.

And finally…

Wyoming

Barrasso_c68cd1fa6be1b32de5c21085595426ca9fbd5179

This is John Barrasso (far left of course – I’m sure you know who the other clowns are). He is a member of the Trump/Kavanaugh party and the incumbent U.S. Senator.

To help his Democratic opponent, challenger Gary Trauner, click here.

Update 10/18/18: This post is kind of a grab bag of bad U.S. Senate Repug behavior, including Marsha “Baby Parts” Blackburn in all of her horrific insanity.

Update 10/22/18: And in case you somehow didn’t know just how high the stakes are in this election, I give you this, which should leave no doubt whatsoever.

Update 10/26/18: This is further proof…

Update 10/27/18: And do you want another reason why it’s so critical for the Dems to take over the Senate? Take a look at this…

Update 10/26/18: More from Steve appears below..

bf_img_5627

Trump_Barletta_AP_18019027243510-768x512

This is Lou Barletta (on the right of course). He most definitely is a member of the Trump/Kavanaugh Party running for U.S. Senate from PA.

To support our Dem incumbent Senator Bob Casey, Barletta’s opponent, click here.

This is Scott Wagner (again on the right of course). Maybe more than anyone else on this list, he is a member of the Trump/Kavanaugh Party running for PA Governor.

To support our Dem incumbent governor Tom Wolf, Wagner’s opponent, click here.

Update 10/12/18: While our Republican lunatic in PA said this, Governor Wolf did something constructive and commendable (here).

Update 10/15/18: To paraphrase that great quote from Groucho Marx, I’d call Wagner a baboon, but that’s insulting to the other baboons (here).


A Bri-Fi “Sign O’The Times” (UPDATES)

October 6, 2018

Humane

I just noticed this big, obnoxious board by the side of the road next to the Lower Makefield Dog Park (in Bucks County, PA, for the unfamiliar) for Brian Fitzpatrick, running against Scott Wallace for the PA-01 U.S. House seat.

I guess the thinking is that animal lovers would be passing by the area. Of course, if someone was really trying to make a strategic decision of some kind, they would know that the dog park is practically a ghost town anyway, and my guess is that it’s because people couldn’t be bothered with paying the membership fee which I believe is $50 a month (I don’t own a dog, so I don’t know for sure).

And I thought that seeing this sign gave me an opportunity to make a bit of a case for free speech.

It’s really important for us to communicate our political opinion using our First Amendment rights, and I think this is an example. I mean, it would be truly unfortunate if, say, this board were to be splattered with paint, mud, or some other substance that would make it completely illegible.

Likewise, it would be impolite at a minimum if someone were to – oh, I don’t know – accidentally drag a trailer hitch over the sign, uproot it and carry it into the nearby woods. I shudder to think at the impertinence behind such a course of behavior.

And that’s to say nothing of a stray lit match that could engulf it in flames, turning it into cinders to be swept away with the pickup of next week’s trash. I cannot emphasize how (at the very least) disconcerting that would be as well!

There, I said it, and I hope you now feel a bit enlightened also. Thanks for your time.

Update 1 10/12/18: So the endorsement is a fraudtypical for Bri-Fi!

Update 2 10/12/18: It looks like Bri-Fi won the endorsement of the Michael Bloomberg-backed group Everytown for Gun Safety, as noted here.

However…

The Bucks County iteration of Everytown’s grassroots arm, Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America, disbanded this week to protest the endorsement, said former coleader Jessica Getz.

Getz said Fitzpatrick didn’t show up at the local March for Our Lives or other gun-control events, while his Democratic opponent, Scott Wallace, did attend.

She also disliked that Fitzpatrick said in a letter that he voted against the Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act, an NRA-backed bill that would make states honor concealed-carry permits from other states, because of “extraneous provisions” in the legislation. He has a “firm belief in the concept of reciprocity,” he wrote.

“The fact that he would have supported that is outrageous,” said Getz.

Fitzpatrick countered that he hasn’t accepted any contributions from pro-gun groups, and he’s right (here).

But if he believes in “reciprocity,” then he’s doing the NRA’s bidding anyway. And as far as I’m concerned, it also proves that Bri-Fi doesn’t give a damn about law enforcement (here).

Humane_Again2

Update 10/14/18: Uh, yeah – THIS is more like it!

And by the way, I’ve been driving around Wrightstown, Lahaska, Warminster and Newtown in Bucks County, and I’ve counted about 4 of those signs total. They all need to go!

Update 1 10/17/18: Stop the presses! No end to Bri-Fi’s nonsense, apparently (here – and he only fired the guy because he was caught).

Update 2 10/17/18: The “Not True” signs have been removed, but of course that huge, obnoxious (and completely untrue) billboard remains.
