Celebrity Billionaire Presidency

It looks like we might not have corrupt campaign funding to kick around anymore. The 2020 presidential field is filling up with billionaire celebrities who can fund their own campaign corruption. And that’s not to mention the free publicity they’ll get.

Oprah gave a speech at the Golden Globes setting off speculation she wants to be president. Her celebrity colleagues went wild. Presumably she’ll run as a Democrat.

And Mark Cuban, the celebrity billionaire owner of the Dallas Mavericks, has long been considering throwing his NBA championship ring in the ring. If he does so, he says he’ll run as a Republican. Though, as of November he said there’s only a 10% chance he’ll do it.

Maybe Oprah will inspire him.

Pelosi’s Own Tax Facts

President Trump won big on tax reform. And Nancy Pelosi became unhinged. Here’s some of what she had to say about the bill:

End of the worldArmagedonBrazen theft from the middle classRaises taxes on 86 million middle class…Moral Obscenity…Permanent Plutocracy…Unrepentant Greed…A Vote against Tiny Tim

Tax Facts

The fact is, according to Politco and others, eighty percent of filers will get a tax cut averaging $2,000. Yet, for some reason, most people believe they’ll get a tax hike.

But despite his Christmas cash stocking stuffer, Trump’s approval rating remains low. And some Republicans lurk among the resistance.

 

Steve Bannon’s Wild Ride

Roy Moore rode his horse, Sassy, to the polls. I think Sassy voted Democrat.

Hard to imagine a worse candidate than Moore. But he was Steve Bannon’s man. And Bannon said, “there’s a special place in hell for Republicans who don’t support Moore.”

On the other hand there may be a special place in Hell for Republicans who stick with Bannon.

Wild Ride

The last time Republicans went down this road they nominated a witch, Christine O’Donnell, for the Senate. Of course, she denied she was a witch. She still lost.

The last time Alabama sent a  Democrat to the Senate was Richard Shelby in 1992. And even he’s a Republican now.

Not only that, NY Republican Rep. Pete King thinks Bannon looks like a “disheveled drunk.”

 

 

Life and Times of Judge Roy Moore

Jailbait allegations persist against Republican U.S. Senate candidate Judge Roy Moore of Alabama. They say he chased teenyboppers in his thirties. He’s now 70.

A then high school senior claims she was pulled out of trigonometry class to take a phone call from him asking for a date. Another woman says she got him banned from a mall for for making “unwanted” advances. And another accuser says he tried to rape her when she was 16. He denied even knowing her. So she held up a high school year book he signed for her.

Moore told Sean Hannity he “generally” did not date teens as an adult. The mall manager says he never banned Moore from the mall. And the judge’s lawyer implied the yearbook signature is a forgery.

By the way, Saudi women get to drive next year.

 

McCain Health Care Bill Kills

McCain

Senator McCain sided with Jimmy Kimmel in shooting down best bud Lindsey Graham on Friday. He announced he would vote “no” on the Graham Cassidy health care reform.

Two McCain Bill Kills

Those in the know think that pretty much kills the bill. And that would make two health bill kills for McCain.

Damn, should have drawn that on the fuselage.
