Here’s the Latest from Debbie Washerwoman Schultz, Chair of the Democrat National Committee

Just received this in my email.

Pathetic.

Look. We both know that a loss this November 4th will haunt us for the next two years. Get it? Like ghouls. This is a Halloween email.

Republicans will undo the progress we’ve made, leaving only the ghosts (see!) of our policies. They’ll try to take down Obamacare piece-by-piece until all that’s left is just a skeleton (!) of real health care reform.

If this all sounds pretty spooky to you, you’re not alone. But there’s a way you can help make these midterms less scary — by chipping in $3 or more to Democrats who need our help.

If you donate $200 today, you’ll be on the list of our best supporters we send to the FEC. If you’ve saved your payment information, your donation will go through immediately.

Thanks. See you on Election Night.

(And sorry about all the puns.)

Debbie

Debbie Wasserman Schultz
Chair
Democratic National Committee

P.S. — Not sorry for all the puns. Puns are great.

It will indeed be a Hollow Eve if the Democrats manage to stuff the ballot box and cheat their way out of the retribution they deserve.
But if it ain’t close they can’t cheat their way to preserving their dictatorship.
Get off the couch and teach these bums a lesson.
The world belongs to those who bother to show up.

How Did This Little Tidbit So Easily Slip Under the Radar?

Right after taking office, on January 24th, 2014 Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe appointed Dr. Marissa Levine as interim Health Commissioner.

Nobody pays attention to such appointments, for the most part, but it turns out that “Marissa” used to be known as “Mark” because she used to be a dude.

Richmond Times Dispatch slipped that into the third paragraph of that announcement.

Gov. Terry McAuliffe has tapped Dr. Marissa Levine as interim health commissioner.

Levine, who has been serving as a deputy commissioner, will lead the Virginia Department of Health, a vast agency with reach across the state.

Before taking a job with the state, she served as Henrico County’s health director and was known as Dr. Mark Levine. She declined to comment on her appointment and its significance.

I know that the Democrat party is a collection of freaks, malcontents and shake down artists.  But I’m surprised that everyone, including myself, completely didn’t know about this.  And the media successfully buried it.

Do Virginians know that their Health Commissioner is a transgender?  I don’t believe they do.  I sure didn’t until someone pointed it out to me today.

Mark-Marissa’s first move as Health Commissioner was to strip away the commonsense safety restrictions that the General Assembly and the former Governor put in place to make the abortion industry.comply with minimal cleanliness and other safety standards, commonplace amongst dentistry and other clinics.

Virginia is officially being run by those who should be mental patients.

I simply didn’t know about this.  Did you?

You Can’t Judge a Man Until You’ve Walked a Mile in His eBowling Shoes

Dr. Craig Spencer returned from West Africa recently.  Yesterday he took several subway lines in NYC, then went bowling.  And went to dinner.

And then he took an Uber ride home.

And then he developed a 103 degree fever and now has tested positive for Ebola.

Exit question:  Does that spray that the bowling alleys spray in the rental shoes kill Ebola?  Rental bowling shoes are creepy enough, but now………….This?

Whew! Arbitrary 21 Day Incubation Period Reached and Ebola Scare Has Ended. Sequestered Individuals Released.

People who were once incubated are now free to roam about the country as of the last couple of days.

The U.S. Government has sent out the message that 21 days is the end of the incubation period of Ebola and if you don’t show symptoms by then then all is well.  You Don’t have Ebola.

I trust the government implicitly.  Especially with Barack the magnificent angling on the election midterms in the next 15 days.

But then there are some who think that this incubation period is not accurate.

The World Health Organization does not declare an Ebola outbreak over in a country until no new cases are reported within a 42-day period.  

But that would put us past the midterms.  Not that politics is more important to Obama than the nation’s health.  Nothing like that.  Not a smidgeon of anything like that.

Need a Job? Socialist Freedom Party Has a Gig for you

This group is agitating for a $20/hr. minimum wage and you can do all of their graphic design, web management, create all of the flyers and other cool stuff.

For $13/hr.

You can’t make this stuff up.

“We are a socialist feminist political party, so interest in the fights for women’s/LGBTQI/people of color/immigrant rights, as well as other pressing social issues, is encouraged.”

I’ve got a question and a guess.  I’m pretty much familiar with what LGBT stands for, but this message says LGBTQI.  We now have new dysfunctions to bundle into the movement?   I’m assuming that Q stands for Queer, which was once the N word of homosexuality but like the N word, has been embraced by the prancing class, much like the N word has been embraced by segments of the African American community.

But what does ‘I’ stand for at the end of this jumble?

I’ve got some ideas that I’ll keep to myself, but if anyone actually knows I’d appreciate the illumination.

Anybody?

Buehler?

Buehler?

Update:  A Google search of the ‘I’ reveals the term ‘Intersex’, where people are born with mutant sex organs that don’t reveal what their gender actually is.  How many people can that be, exactly?  And why would they collectively advertise it?  Such things used to relegated to traveling shows with carnival barkers.

I can see why they got tacked onto the END of the movement.  Obviously they can’t lead this parade.

Wow.  Was that an unfortunate Google search.  I’m scarred for life.

Jeopardy Contestants’ Careers Remind Me of George Costanza…..Mostly

Sorry.  I can’t do politics all the time.  So I went to Jeopardy for a bit of escapism.  Tonight’s show has three contestants, of course.

Three dudes.

An Architect, one of George’s dream vocations if you will recall.

A Romance Novelist.  I can see George doing that.

A Risk Assessment Manager.  Talk about a nebulous job.  That seems like a perfect George Costanza job.  Just walk around saying ‘Too risky.  I wouldn’t do that.’

We’re considering expanding our business to western Africa so we’ll take a trip to lay the groundwork next week….. 

Risk Assessment Manager’s reply…. Um.  Too risky.  I wouldn’t do that.

Oh and the guy who is the Romance Novelist?  He’s from Massachusetts and he runs a non profit that brings Afghanis to America to attend college.

I was hoping the Risk Assessment Manager would say.

Too risky.  I wouldn’t do that.

But he didn’t.

OK.  Everything is politics.  That’s just the way things are these days.

McAuliffe, finds bullying ineffective.

Whether it is the Reston based Northern Virginia Technology Council’s political action committee or former Senator Phil Puckett the very successful political operative Terry McAuliffe is finding that the tactics that served him so well as Bill Clinton’s bagman have been largely ineffective as a candidate and Governor.

In 2013, when the NVTC PAC informed McAuliffe that they would be endorsing Ken Cuccinelli in  2013, McAuliffe enlisted high ranking Virginia Democrats to reach out and pressure the council to reverse their decision. It was reported that council members received either phone calls or emails from United States Senator Mark Warner, Senate Minority Leader Richard L. Saslaw (D-Fairfax), Sen. Barbara Favola (D-Arlington) and Sen. Janet D. Howell (D-Fairfax) with threatening advice warning the council that a Cucinelli endorsement will result in a  frigid frigid relationship with Democrat legislators and doors will be closed [when the council seeks help with its legislative agenda]. Threatening that if they did not capitulate, they would make it difficult to impossible for the NVTC to achieve their goals.

Fast forward to 2014 when faced with the resignation of Sen. Phillip Puckett. Puckett cited family reasons, specifically to enable his daughter to be confirmed to her full six-year term to the bench. However, his resignation would also mean the loss of Democrat control of the senate and the governor’s bid for Medicaid expansion, McAuliffe again called for a full court press. Senator Mark Warner along with others including the governor’s chief of staff, Paul Reagan called the Puckett residence to convince Puckett to stay on. This time instead of the stick, it appears the carrot was employed. Allegedly Warner discussed the possibility of a federal judgeship for Puckett’s daughter and the transcript of Reagan’s voice mail suggests an opportunity for Ms. Puckett to head a state agency.

When the carrot proved ineffective it is now reported that the Governor himself contacted Puckett with what Puckett’s attorney characterized as an angry voicemail. In it  the governor communicated his personal vitriol toward the former senator over the impact of his resignation. Puckett is not currently making the transcript of the voicemail public but it reportedly closed with words to the effect that he hoped Puckett could live with his decision.

I suspect Mr. Puckett will have no problem sleeping at night knowing his sacrifice enabled his daughter to achieve her desire to be confirmed to a full 6 year term and serve as a judge in the commonwealth. I also am not surprised that McAuliffe spokesman Brian Coy said the governor does not regret making the call. Terry McAuliffe, a man who brags about choosing to politics over his family, who left his crying wife and newborn baby in the back of a cab to attend a political fundraiser, wouldn’t.
