Chris Christie is a buffoon and I hope this term will be his last in any political setting. Just cannot imagine anyone who now knows the man behind the façade would vote for him again.

Donald Trump, bring it on!

Jeffrees, Funny, he thinks God is the answer to everything and doesn't want the government involved in our lives UNLESS it's about abortion decisions or gay rights, then he doubles back and thinks that's OK. Just selling another book that the uninformed will rush out to buy. Even my nephew, who was a Republican, and has now since passed away, would not watch O'Reilly.

PIGnocchio ... misogynist....bully....goombah...job-killer.....all around sorry, walking, hate-spewing upright POS on two legs. As, yes, I WOULD say all this to his ugly face in person. He doesn't intimidate moi.....but then again....I intimidate the hell out of convicted killers.....he'd be a walk in the park. Rule #1 peeps....all bullies are cowards underneath their bravado/arrogance.

Sooooooooooo Mr. Bad Hair Day wants to run for Prez again.....can I stop laughing now? To that I say....go ahead, Donald Dumba$$, we need the entertainment, especially when we all know what cats do when they get a hairball in the throat.....they hack them up and spit them out....fitting for Mr. Bouffant.

Jeffreys and Bill-O....whatta combo of idiocy, hate-thy-neighbor-unless-he's-rich-white-propertied, supply-side JEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEZUS freaks. To listen to them is to perform a self inflicted full frontal lobotomy hence, I do not inflict them on my psyche....I like my brain matter right where it is.

Love then 'toon, Cat Daddy as right-on. I do not worry about the idiot Reich for myself personally because I took their ability to determine my reproduction out of their hands, I got spayed. But I do worry for all the millions of women who are not and are still of the replicating age. They better stand up for their rights and fight like we did in the '70's/;80's for RvW or these very same Fascist Bast**ds are going to take it all away from them including contraception. That is a very scary thought for me and any self-determined woman of any age.

I hope you got enough rest, TomCat, before going to your meeting.We don't want you to get sick again.

I wasn't aware of Chris Christie before he was re-elected as governor and Bridge-Gate surfaced, but the voters should have known better, the bullying of women has been going on for years and particularly as a governor when he had been given the power to veto the women-friendly bills that were put forward by Democrats, I assume.And still all these Democratic officials, including female Mayors, endorsed him. The more I hear about it the more I get the feeling that Democrats in NJ aren't going after him as hard as the could because "they have butter on their heads" as we call it. All these shameful facts must have or should have been known to them and yet they endorsed him, so now they're loath to attract attentions to these facts and their turning a blind eye.

I just read a quote from Facebook which said: "I go to Fox News for my comedy and I go to Comedy Central for my news". I thought I try this 'advise' and see what funny stuff dear Robert Jeffress had to offer us, but I just couldn't watch it all. It's not funny, it's just mad rambling. I bet no one can even be bothered to check up on all the passages and quotes this man spews to underwrite his claim that Obama is the Antichrist and the ACA is his tool. What a waste of time and space.

So Trump is going to try and buy America now, huh? Good luck to him.

Seldom have I seen a law of the land so blatantly abused as Roe vs Wade. A sad commemorative, your cartoon, TomCat.

4:54 Pretty colors. A very beguiling way to watch one's ego go down the tubes.

Ultraviolet - Thanks for posting. I got the email, but am not on Facebook and do not blog, and I just can't get everything worthy onto my Care billboard.

Crooks and Liars - True that, for Republican Supply side Jesus "Christians," the real Jesus would be the anti-Christ. However, Obama is not that good. Maybe Bernie Sanders.

Globe and Mail: With all that cat fud, one would have to expect hairballs.

Cartoon: When will the "Moral Majority" realize that they are neither?

Have a good and safe trip, TC. I know you'll enjoy seeing your guys.

The 'wingnut pastor' is on a par with Robertson decreeing before the last presidential election that President Obama would definitely lose as God had told him so – strange that he was wrong, wasn't it? Let's hope and pray that his colleague will be wrong too… like you and everyone else TC, I am certain neither of those two would recognise Jesus if he appeared in front of them, they certainly don't bother to read his words and obey his commands. Mind you I was surprised that he quoted from the New Testament – but it was of course from Revelations – that and the OT book of Daniel are the nutters' favourites!

3:38 - It seemed the colors were all running together.

I know that many from New Jersey like Christie, they find him the perfect guy for their state. Personally, I just do not see this man on the national stage. I don't care for his attitude, I don't like the way he talks about or toward women, I don't think he is funny. My time spent in New Jersey was, thankfully, short. Sweeping the George Washington bridge under the carpet is not going to as easy as firing a few people. If the governor of a state has no clue about what is going on in his office, than I would say he has some very poor management skills. Though I think most believe he knew exactly what was done, and gave the orders. In which case he is guilty of a few crimes, and poor judgment.

I think I will take a pass on watching Jeffress. I really don't want to get angry, and people like that always bring out the most unpleasant feelings.

I hope you are feeling better TC.

Thanks for the anniversary recognition in your cartoon TC--I remember women who had to go to Mexico or back allies or were too afraid of these or couldn't afford them and were scarred in multiple ways for life--I do not welcome anyone trying to recreate those circumstances for women.

Once upon a time, before big money campaigns, politicians learned the limits of their authority, ethics rules and about responsibility to their residents by experience at the local level (city councils, county offices, school district boards and then state legislatures) before running for statewide or national office. You give us two examples that do not have those histories with one showing the sad results from that absence of understanding of sworn duties.

My Bible doesn't recognize his view of Christ somehow.

Mr Christie, you make good cookie crumbs . . . the kind to bury you in!

Why are women such a threat to Christie and others of his ilk? Did they not get enough attention from Mom?

Crooks and Liars: I couldn't listen to the whole thing. The blatant ignorance was making me ill and angry. Have to watch my blood pressure.

Globe and Mail: I hope he does run, it will certainly throw the Republicans into more disarray than they are now, since the only halfway viable candidate they had has, forgive me, thrown himself over the bridge.

Cartoon: That is their hope, and add subservient, probably will pass laws to keep us from going to school, too. I repeat, why are women such a threat to Republicans?.

I hope you got plenty of rest today so you can enjoy your trip.

Thanks everyone. I made it to Salem and am quite pooped, because traveling with both a suitcase and a walker is quite difficult.

Frankly, I think Terrie is being much too bashful. ;-)

Why, Cat could you tell.....going light on the cussing maybe???? LOL

Kit, ma cher, you really don't wanna hear just how vicious, low-brow and evil I could get on this crap, so I clean it up once in a while for the benefit of ma peeps! :) But I think you know how I REALLY feel about these walking reasons for contraception. :)

Terrie, love your comments. Would send you a star, but just sent one a few minutes ago for something else. Actually, you are hilarious. I do love a good sense of humor.

Big surprise. A kid asks Christie, what's your favorite movie? CC: You aren't old enough to watch it. It's The Godfather. How did I know that?
