Mike Pence is Probably Doomed

July 18, 2016

By Karen

Donald Trump will never share the spotlight with any running mate, particularly one he hasn’t broken in as a doormat.

I’ve now seen Trump and his VP pick, Mike Pence, together twice, with Trump avoiding eye contact and behaving just short of dismissive. Pence will be walking on eggs, and no matter what he says or does, if Trump decides that telling Pence, “You’re fired!” will make Trump look more presidential to his followers, he’ll do it. And then claim the RNC “unfairly” stuck him with a low-energy loser of a VP.

I’m not shedding tears for Pence. He’s a typical backward-thinking, discriminatory misogynist who cloaks himself in religion, and now he’s volunteered to be the most pathetic second banana in American political history.

The best Pence can muster to say about Trump is, “He’s a good man,” and he repeats it like a mantra. I seriously doubt Pence’s religious faith recognizes incessant boasting, exaggeration, mockery, bullying, and lying as virtues.

I think we’re still looking at a Trump-Gingrich ticket by election day.

Meanwhile, Hillary’s team has been going great guns at turning Trump against himself.

After the Trump-Pence 60 Minutes interview, they must be giddy to get so much new fodder.

Trump says any disagreements with Pence occurred “a long time ago.” And after winning the nomination playing the outsider, Trump now says teaming with a career politician is good for “party unity.”

Since when did Trump EVER want party unity? His whole raison d’être has been to stomp the living shit out of the GOP.

Trump’s challenge now is to wring a drop of Pence-ibility out of all his positions. He’ll be making even less sense than Sarah Palin.

Pence must disavow most of his beliefs and dive into the deep end of Trump’s cesspool of negative campaigning. How long will Pence swallow his revulsion before he blows chunks all over Trump?

On 60 Minutes, Leslie Stahl asked Pence if he’d ever dare tell Trump he’d crossed a line, and Trump guffawed at the question, like, “Yeah, like THAT’S ever gonna happen!” Then Trump said he’d “listen” to Pence (not take his advice), but he’d never apologize to anyone for anything.

Pence brings nothing to the ticket but more mud. Now we’ve got two guys tap-dancing to make wildly divergent wacko notions mesh. Example: Pence tweeted that Trump’s ban on Muslim immigration is “offensive and unconstitutional,” so Trump’s now calling for “extreme vetting,” whatever that is.

How long and how much will Trump be willing to compromise? I’ll give him a month.

It’s a match made in hell. Let’s see how long those two can roast in it before someone spontaneously combusts.


New Blood Sport: Tag-Teaming Trump

June 20, 2016

By Karen

Donald Trump once boasted he could shoot someone and not lose any followers, but shooting off his own mouth has earned him some serious backlash. My new hobby is watching Trump get attacked on all sides.

For the Democrats, Elizabeth Warren, aka “Pocahontas” to Trump, leads the charge. In New Hampshire she called Trump a “thin-skinned, racist bully” and a “small, insecure money-grubber.” In DC, Warren labeled Trump a “loud, nasty, thin-skinned fraud” and a “wannabe tyrant.” And she’s just warming up.

Obama criticized with a broad brush “politicians who tweet,” “yap” and have a “dangerous” mindset and “loose talk and sloppiness” when discussing terrorism.

Hillary is trying stay out the mud, but has warned,” Be afraid, be very afraid,” of Trump’s foreign policy ideas. And that electing Trump would be a “historic mistake.” His ideas “aren’t just different, they’re dangerously incoherent… bizarre rants, personal feuds and outright lies. He is not just unprepared, he’s is temperamentally unfit to hold an office that requires knowledge, stability and immense responsibility.”

Trump even managed to go too far with the NRA. After Trump lamented that the victims in the Orlando attack weren’t armed to take out the terrorist, the NRA now insists alcohol and firearms don’t mix (since when?) and that Trump’s opinion “defies common sense.”

By managing to sound nuttier than the NRA’s CEO, Wayne LaPierre, Trump has actually forced the NRA to grow up a little. It tweeted: “Our position is no guns for terrorists — period.”

Nice try, NRA, but too little, too late. Thanks to you, assault weapons are everywhere, readily available, and the preferred tool of homegrown terrorists.

Even some GOP convention delegates are on an “Anybody but Trump” drive, pushing for a “conscience clause” so they won’t have to vote for Trump.

Meanwhile, Paul Ryan and other GOP leadership meekly let Trump tell them to “be quiet” so he can win the election on his own. Their acquiescence in letting that maniac try to take over the country amounts to treason.

I predict that Trump will go down. Maybe not at the convention, but surely after he debates Hillary. She’ll coolly cut him to shreds with facts and policies that make sense, and the touchy orange buffoon will respond with more empty, hyperbolic boasting and personal insults, like an ape hurling verbal feces. It’s Trump’s schtick, and that’s all he’s got.


Karl Rove Knows Brain Damage

May 13, 2014

By Cole

Even though nobody knows yet if Hillary Clinton will run for president, Karl Rove’s not wasting any opportunity to get his digs in.

Back in December 2012, when she was secretary of state, Hillary spent 3 days in the hospital having a blood clot dissolved after she sustained a concussion. She left the hospital wearing dark glasses (standard protocol), and continued working.

On May 8, before an audience in Los Angeles, Rove implied that Hillary had suffered a “traumatic brain injury,” which is the clinical term for “brain damage,” although Rove now cravenly denies he was going there.

Hillary has shown no diminished ability to count, as Rove has when he claimed her 3 days in the hospital was 30.

Hillary’s shown no physical impairment, which is more than anyone can say for Rove’s former idol, Dick Cheney, who’s essentially been one of the walking dead, kept alive by artificial means, for years.

By Rove’s standards, the absence of a healthy functioning heart should have disqualified Cheney from office for both terms.

The only one showing signs of mental impairment here is Karl Rove, which White House spokesman Jay Carney aptly pointed out, recalling Rove’s inability to grasp that Obama won in 2012.

Every time Rove opens his mouth, he just reinforces his own irrelevance. If you stood him alone in a forest spouting lies, nobody would hear him.


Rand Paul Can’t Tell a Predator from a Paramour

January 27, 2014

By Adele

That pinging sound you hear is Rand Paul’s loose screws hitting the floor. Yesterday on NBC’s Meet the Press, Paul told David Gregory he thinks that Republicans’ chronic misogyny is being overstated because Bill Clinton had a “predatory” affair with Monica Lewinsky back in 1995-97 when she was only 20.

Maybe it was an honest mistake that Paul tried to paint Monica as barely past jail bait, when she was actually 22. But we know that’s what Republicans do with easily provable facts — ignore them.

Paul went on to say that although it wasn’t Hillary’s fault, Bill’s affair should be OK to use against her if she runs for president in 2016.

In Paul’s telling, the Clinton-Lewinsky encounter was a one-off where Bill pounced on her like a total perv in — gasp! — “his office”!! Paul repeats the location several times. Watch him spout this nonsense with your own eyes.

By Monica’s account, it was an ongoing, consensual relationship. Oops, there’s another pesky fact to ignore.

If Bill Clinton had a problem with women, it was that he liked them TOO MUCH, and he was too eager to get hands-on with it. Clinton’s administration didn’t make a hobby of cooking up ways to disenfranchise women.

Bill may have liked to see women strip off their clothes, but he wasn’t into stripping them of their rights.

On the other hand, too many male Republican politicians like to sit in their offices and dream about all the pregnant women seeking abortions they’d like to see first being penetrated during medically needless transvaginal ultrasound procedures.

Or being raped and forced to bear their attacker’s baby if they get pregnant. Or spending their reproductive years popping out a baby every 9 months because they have no access to birth control.

Who sounds pervier now?

If you’ve been reading Cats Working, you may remember I was for Hillary Clinton before I was against her, and I defected because of her response to Bill’s infidelity.

But Rand Paul has catapulted me back onto Hillary’s bandwagon, if only because she’d never go on national TV and pull fake history out of her ass to make nonsensical points to justify indefensible positions.

If Hillary does decide to run, one can only hope Rand Paul is her opponent. It would be such a joy to watch her eviscerate him in a debate — which she undoubtedly could.

Only a walking brain-dead woman (I’m looking at you, Sarah Palin and Ann Coulter) could listen to male Republican trash talk about women and believe they don’t see women as a threat, and are actively scheming to send women back to the Dark Ages at the first opportunity.

 


Why Investigate Gadhafi’s Death?

October 25, 2011

By Cole

Last week while she was visiting Libya, Hillary Clinton told an audience of students…

“We hope he [Gadhafi] can be captured or killed soon so that you don’t have to fear him any longer.”

She got her wish. Within days, Moammar Gadhafi was dragged out of a drain pipe like a common sewer rat, beaten by the people he’d terrorized for decades while they ignored his pleas for mercy (he’d taught them well), and put of out his misery with a bullet (or several) to the head.

There’s now debate over whether the rebels executed him on the spot, or he bled to death en route to the hospital. His body was seen in an ambulance by Holly Pickett, a freelance photojournalist.

You say tomato, I meow tomahto…

Hillary’s saying she backs a UN investigation into how it all went down.

Why? Who cares? Somebody offed the bad guy. He’s a national hero. You want to put HIM on trial?

You can’t have it both ways, Hillary. You wanted Gadhafi dead, so don’t start acting all concerned now about the circumstances. The world agreed he needed killing. It’s done.

It’s better than paying for his upkeep in prison for years while he just went crazier and used his trial as a stage to deny his greed and atrocities, claim he was still beloved by all, and just piss everybody off even more.

We all know that could only have ended with his execution.

So rather than miring the country for years in the phony game of “Justice for Gadhafi,” he’s history and they can begin RIGHT NOW to rebuild the country.

NATO and the UN should just let the sleeping dog lie.


Decoding McCain’s Latest Palin Whopper

September 22, 2008

By Adele

Whenever McCain talks about Sarah Palin, his breathtakingly unqualified running mate, be prepared to catch your jaw when it drops. This morning, he told The Today Show that Palin is “the most popular governor in the country” because she has an 80% approval rating.

Alaska only has 670,053 inhabitants. Let’s see… 80% would be 536,042 people.

According to the Census Bureau, the U.S. has 305,224,676 people right now. That means exactly one-tenth of one percent (.001756221) of all Americans liked (if they even knew of) Sarah Palin before a blindfolded McCain plucked her from his Rolodex.

To put it in sharper perspective, 18% in a June Harris Poll thought Dick Cheney was doing an excellent or good job. That’s 54,940,441 – nearly 55 million people – who love Mr. Evil himself.

Luckily, most of Hillary’s supporters haven’t been fooled. Let’s hope Palin inspires such a backlash among intelligent women, she’ll become the reason McCain loses.

For dealing with our myriad, complex problems – created mostly by his own party over the last 8 years – McCain couldn’t have picked a more useless partner.

Palin likes to boast she never “blinks,” too dumb to realize that it leads to dry-eye, blurred vision, and blindness. But it does explain her utter lack of vision on women’s rights and social issues.

Palin has tried to get $750 million in federal handouts for Alaska, like she’s been running some Third-World country. And while she was doing that, Senator McCain didn’t complain or lift a finger to stop it.

Since anointing themselves the angels of “change,” those two clearly haven’t a clue where to begin “cleaning up the swamp in Washington.”

As Hillary Clinton told Florida voters, “Choosing a Republican to clean up this mess is like asking an iceberg to save the Titanic. It is not going to work.”


Hillary, Hone Your Claws on Palin

September 3, 2008

By Adele

I may not have thought Hillary Clinton was the best option for president, but I’m spitting mad they’re presenting Sarah Palin as the way to avenge Hillary’s defeat.

The only thing the two women share is gender. Palin’s regressive thinking makes her the anti-Hillary.

Hillary realized long ago you can’t have it all: a litter of youngsters, a highly successful husband, and a powerful job of your own. She guided Chelsea well on finishing college, getting married, and having babies – in that order – lessons Bristol Palin apparently missed.

It surprised everyone when Sarah Palin suddenly turned up pregnant for the 5th time at age 43. She claims she knew early on that the baby had problems (Down Syndrome), but still gave a 30-minute speech in Texas and flew home after her water broke. Then she delivered a month prematurely and skipped maternity leave to bond with the baby, opting instead to breastfeed him at work. And as if she hadn’t already dished out enough setbacks to that poor child, she named him Trig – like Roy Roger’s horse.

Anyone would treat a new puppy better than that.

Despite her own disregard for motherhood’s responsibilities, Palin’s anti-abortion and claims each life is precious. She’s also pro-death penalty and sees no disconnect between her positions. “Bear them today so we can kill them tomorrow,” is her motto – literally.

Unlike Hillary, Sarah Palin represents Mrs. Redneck America – a premenopausal grandmother-to-be with a quaint, outdated hairdo who loves guns and killing animals, believes that God should run the country and Jesus declares wars, and is bursting with pride that her son’s gone off to become cannon fodder in Iraq and her teenage daughter has a shotgun wedding coming up. Throw in her puny experience governing a relatively unpopulated state and utter lack of exposure to other countries and cultures and she makes Obama look like Winston Churchill.

If Hillary really wants to help Obama win, she should go after Sarah Palin like she’s a new scratching post.
