Re: “Cavalacade of Trump horrors: Court-packing edition

Diff with FDR being that even among most D's of the day the proposal was a non-starter.

It IS funny how enthusiastically the right has embraced moral relativism. It's actually heartening.

The same crowd that tried to railroad the hated Bill C. out of office cuz bj's have embraced grab-em by the privates Drumpf (who happily still has a sexual harassment suit going, thanks to rule changes by the same R's who hated Bill)

The fundies who call Bill C the devil, pray & speak in tongues over a multi-divorce, foul-mouthed womanizer whose "spirituality" is questionable at best.

"Small government" Federalist Society types are keen to add new layers of judicial bureaucracy & demand confirmation of objectively unqualified judicial candidates after stonewalling Obama's picks.

Yup, glad to see the righties are so flexible in their philosophy.

Re: “Rapping Saturday at Little Rock City Hall as protest of music show crackdown

What?! Mere citizens thinking, in their impudence, that they enjoy some kind of right to petition their government?

His Lordship Stodola will certainly want to put a stop to THIS latest outrage, by getting them banned from City Hall, a la Luke Skrable.

Re: “Trump went there. He really went there

Probably a good thing, on more than one level.

Re: “Trump went there. He really went there

Grifter Sarah Huck declined to describe Moore's accusers as liars. Unlike those lying, gold-digging sluts who accused her boss.

In an ironic twist, thanks to a ruling made during Bill C's troubles, the lawsuit against Tiny Hands brought by Summer Zervos is proceeding.

Re: “Thursday: Open line and the daily roundup

Raging right-wing bigot resigns from Homeland Security position. He's a reverend, of course.

"Homeland Security's head of community outreach resigns over past controversial comments on black community, Islam"

"Rev. Jamie Johnson resigned after CNN KFile report revealed inflammatory past comments he made about the black community and Islam.

In past radio appearances, Johnson had said the black community was responsible for turning major US cities into "slums" and argued that Islam's only contribution to society was "oil and dead bodies."

Re: “Thursday: Open line and the daily roundup

Who sez it's "inappropriate"? The man's wuz jus' doin' a little opposition research in his office.

"On his Twitter page, Goodman described himself as Christian. American. Conservative. Republican.

Nuthin' wrong with that, OR dipping some toes in the other pond.

Ohio seems to be ahead of AR in mandating sexual harassment training for its elected officials, but as the article noted, they've had a few issues to address.

"Inappropriate behavior with man in his office led to Ohio lawmakers ouster"

"State Rep. Wes Goodman, who consistently touted his faith and conservative values, abruptly resigned late Tuesday after being confronted with evidence of inappropriate conduct with another man inside his Riffe Center office, the second Ohio lawmaker to fall within a month.

House Speaker Cliff Rosenberger, R-Clarksville, met Tuesday afternoon with the Cardington Republican soon after the speaker became aware of an incident from weeks ago in the lawmakers office that, sources said, involved a male in a consensual situation.

No harassment complaint, sexual or otherwise, was filed against Goodman. But someone, reportedly not a staffer, who knew of or witnessed the incident informed House Chief of Staff Mike Dittoe of the situation early Tuesday afternoon.

I was alerted to details yesterday afternoon regarding his involvement in inappropriate behavior related to his state office, Rosenberger said in a statement on Wednesday. I met with him later in the day where he acknowledged and confirmed the allegations. It became clear that his resignation was the most appropriate course of action for him, his family, the constituents of the 87th House District and this institution.

The speakers office is not releasing additional details of the conduct, though Brad Miller, spokesman for Rosenberger, said it did not involve Statehouse staffers or other legislative members. Rumors about Goodmans questionable conduct, including his use of social media, have been swirling at the Statehouse in the past few weeks and include stories dating back years to when he worked in Washington. His Facebook account was taken offline.

Rosenberger and Goodman agreed, Miller said, that it was activity unbecoming of a state representative.

Miller said there is no video of the incident, as some have speculated."
