1. I can resolve this. They are both too kind to Reagan, who was becoming progressively dumber while in office, yet never quite reached the point his idolaters claim (and probably believe) formed their philosophies.

2. True, I am not the first to say this, nor is this the first time I have said it, but there is no such thing as a scholarship to West Point. So I can tell you he never got one without even moving from my chair. But I do think it might be a good idea to look into his medical credentials. What state is he licensed in? A FOIA request might not even be necessary. There are some states where you can look up anyone with (or claiming) any kind of a license on the interwwebs, and find out if the license exists, and if so, its status, and any complaints.

3. If Kasich thinks he knows of anyone, anywhere, any time, who died from an overdose of marijuana, he is nuttier than a fruitcake. Also, it's not only alcohol on which we send the message that it's OK, It's also nicotine. Oh, yeah, and aspirin. Don't get a headache or a fever, kids, your life could be ruined.

4. That really is an absurd statement, on so many levels, isn't it? Besides being so obvious that it is a "religious test," prohibited by the Constitution, that AlterNet didn't even bother to mention it.

5. So is she any relation to that dame in Minnesota? Or is it just a spiritual sisterhood? (Gene, we know thaere are some wonderful people in Coon Rapids; she does not reflect on you.) I might just mention that the extreme dark circles under her eyes (they are not puffy, just dark, if the picture is accurate) are often a tell tale symptom of debilitating allergies, and also that such allergies can lead to extreme mood swings. I am not suggesting that allergy treatment could make her sane, but it might just help her refrain from committing batteries on no provocation.

I might just add that AlterNet has so much to do to feature the crazies who are major players, they sometimes miss the extremely amusing little stuff, like this pin-up calendar.

P.S. - @ JL - The presence of Donald J. Trump, AKA "Hairball," IS a barf bag alert. Because that's what hairballs do.

Thanks for the barf-bag alert, folks! Not sure there's a single reasonably sane person amongst the Republiclown horde, but...
People say that St. Ronnie the Dim was addled from the get go, and therefore, not responsible for the mayhem he caused. As far as I'm concerned, he was evil as well as demented, though idiotic voters ("so-called Reagan Democrats," among many others) are culpable, as well. Perhaps the current demonization of "Welfare, Social Security and Veterans' beneficiaries" would have less oomph had the heartless bastard not succeeded in arbitrarily cutting off all recipients, forcing them to re-apply. I know too many people who died when benefits were abruptly terminated, and am not sure I can forgive Reagan or anyone else involved in this holocaust, ever, ever! This month is the anniversary of the deaths of seven individuals whom I dearly loved, who despite their limitations were more "productive" members of society than many able-bodied people I've ever known.

New Report Shows Right-Wing Pundits Mostly Wrong

"The top performer in the study is Paul Krugman of the New York Times. The worst performer is uber-pundit George Will."

Did Bill O'Reilly finally say a true thing?

1. The GOP is about to explode and the only thing they had going to keep it together just the tiniest bit was their shared idolatry of Reagan and his "economics". Isn't it fun to watch two hardcore GOpers going for each others throat over the only thing they ever agreed upon?

2. The first time I drew attention to the state of Dr Carson's mental health may have been in jest, but due to his continuous outrageous lies and because he seems out of it most of the time, I'm starting to think this poor man has real mental health issues, seriously. He's either in early stages of dementia, on the brink of a nervous breakdown , or showing symptoms of substance abuse. But if my suspicions are ever confirmed, we'll never know, because that would be one of the greatest blunders the GOP ever had to overcome: having a candidate topping the polls who turns out to have mental issues. By the way, Reagan died of/with Alzheimer's, we'll never know how much of his behavior and cognition was already affected by it when he was in the later years of his presidency.

3. Whether it's on pot or anything else, one thing has become clear by now and that is that none, not one, neither of them is capable of sensibly defending or debating on any of the political issues they stand for. They all have Palinitis: stringing a number of sound bites that trigger a positive reaction in their befuddled base's brains like"right to bear arms" or "Obama is to blame" or "Christians are under attack" but make no sense at all in a sentence.

4. What is wrong with these tidbits together in one item: National Religious Liberties Festival, organized by a far-right extremist Christian pastor who advocates the death penalty for homosexuality, Ted Cruz, along with Mike Huckabee and Bobby Jindal, had absolutely zero qualms about speaking. I suppose it's all OK as long as you start the day with a prayer on your knees. Because you fear God. And you have every reason to.

5. It's quite possible that Carol Hefner, besides a campaign coordinator and a co-chair of Trump's state campaign, is also Donald's speech writer.
