Political Snippets

Mike Huckabee was brought to tears by a woman who ran for an office whose duties she cannot fulfill... and then said that God told her she was right.

The man is running for President, Chief Executive Officer of the United States of America, and he supports an elected official who does not believe that the laws of this land apply to her.
*****
Ben Carson questions the depth of Donald Trump's religious fervor, and CNN reports it... as if voters need to know that information in order to form a reasoned opinion.
*****
Jeb Bush has a tax plan, but all the news shows were reporting his appearance on Colbert's Tonight Show.
*****
Donald Trump and Ben Carson have 48% of the likely Republican primary voters convinced that they are Presidential, according to CNN according to a Monmouth University poll.  I'm so disgusted I can't make myself take the time to investigate it and give you a link.

I must have missed the memo - when did the side show move to the main tent?

  1. I think Huckabee gets me the most... well, right after those who follow him and encouraged her. Ignorance is bad enough but these people are even ignorant about the words of the one they claim to follow. Maybe that makes sense for some of them but for Huckabee.... How could a man run for the Presidency who would break the laws that went against his interpretation of the Old Testament and what would he do about gays? It's not enough to stop them from having happy lives and families. He must stone them to death. And on it goes. This is insane and the most insane part to me is all of their candidates are just varying degrees of the same religious drivel-- and when you don't really know what the Bible says, the book you claim to follow, what you speak is drivel. I've often thought that Commandment, the one that says don't take the Lord's name in vain-- this is what it's talking about not a swear word that has no meaning or relationship to God but using Him for your own personal power and greed.

    2. That last sentence reminds me of the Pharisees who used the name of God for their own way of doing things.

  2. We definitely have a comedy on our hands, don't we? Or is it a tragedy? The election is still over a year away. I am praying for a miracle.

    1. How about Bernie Sanders v Ben Carson. Smart, totally divergent (except for guns... they both suck), and less about ego than substance. I wish I were in charge!

  3. I would like to believe this is funny except it is way too scary.

    1. Terrifying. Horrifying. When the Fox news women are calling him out, as TBG says they were today on his rounds thru the talking heads, something is awry!
