4:28 Here's a thought: forget the dog, grab the wet towel and cool off!

Reich - OF COURSE he is right. So one thing our analysis should address is: which groups, if they support you, increase turnout through their community? The Republicans alread have that figured out on their side: tin-foil-hat wearers. I respectfully submit that, on our side, one (not the only one) is minority women. That doesn't mean, of course, that we need all minority women candidates. It does mean we should seek information on issues important to them and address those issues - loudly.

Sam - The one who complained about the whiny throat should hear me!

Politico - This seat would be an easy pickup were it not for California's jungle primary system. I sure hope that doesn't screw the pooch.

Cartoon - As awful as Johnson was, I'm not really sure a conviction would have been justified. On Nixon, it most assuredly would have been justified, but didn't happen. You know, a book on impeachment (and the absence thereof) in United States history could make for a very fetching read. John Tyler certainly should have been impeached, but circumstances intervened. Come to think of it, that would have been a great time, person, and place to set a precedent for indicting a sitting President for treason. Sure too bad they didn't.

What Nunes' district's local paper has to say about him (and they've been sharing the problems all along):

Puzzle 4:08 Ill let you have the wet towel, but the pup is all mine!

Inequality Media AMEN!!! Get out the vote!!! If the thought of more Republican cow pucky and more service to Drumpf makes you ill, then do something about it! Vote the bastards out!!!

Politico Nunes is likely to have a rough time during the mid terms. One constituent, presumably a doctor based on his words, wrote in the Fresno Bee according to AlterNet:

Nunes is attempting to undermine the rule of law in this country, MacMillan wrote. Mr. Nunes would rather serve a carnival con man whose ignorance and corruption surpasses the Harding Administration and Teapot Dome Scandal of the 1920s.

Meanwhile, the letter accuses Nunes of avoiding the real problems of his constituents in the 22 district: I see patients every day that need Mr. Nunes to fight for their health care.

He continued: Mr. Nunes is the swamp. He epitomizes everything that Americans dislike about our government and its corrupted ways.

Nunes should take the good doctors advice and resign, but he wont. He is too caught up in his own importance and power. One would think that the stink of having his head all the way up Drumpfs ass would be enough to turn him off!

Cartoon May Drumpf find himself being impeached and found guilty!!!

Resist, Persist, Remove!!!

Silence is Consent!!!

I hope you were able to get some sleep today. I had a nap but I am going down now. At least I am rid of the republicosis!!!

IM: Nobody tells it better than Robert Reich, even without words. Go out and vote, Democrats. (And please stay home, Republicans & Drumpfians)

Sam 🐝: So sad that all the funny ones are fake and the gross and despicable ones are real. This short clip once again proves that Drumpfians have no sense of humor, delusional, and can’t spell.

Politico: Usually I’d like to know more about Nunes’ “little-known challenger”, Democrat Janz, before encouraging everyone in the Central Valley to go out and vote for Janz, but we’re talking about one of the most despicable Republicans after McConnell and Ryan here, so: Go, Janz. GO! 📢
The state of California just can’t afford the disgrace of having someone like Nunes representing them in the House.

I hope you get a good night’s rest tonight, TomCat. With the frequency of kitchen fires increasing, the partying outside your window and your room’s impersonations of an oven, having to move soon may still not be something to look forward too, but perhaps a little less off-putting these days.

FFC: Sam B. is too funny. At least she (or someone) fact checks her material, which is much more than I can say for some.
Politico: Nunes should be in jail (at the least), mostly for being a hypocrite and just plain stupid.
Thanks for the post, TomCat. Sorry to hear about your rather scary interrupted night. Good to know they got the fire out before you had to evacuate.

I've never missed an opportunity to vote in ANY election. I really don't understand how Any citizen can chose not to vote in an election. Unless you die on election day there is always a way to get a ballot and vote. The video is spot on. Get out the VOTE!!!!!
