Senator Mark Pryor (D-AR) just learned a really hard lesson.
When in doubt, put your constituents first, not your finances. He tried to play politics as opposed to doing the job voters elected him to do and now he’s gonna be ass out the day after the election with no a job because the NRA still isn’t supporting his campaign even after he voted to kill gun reform.
This election cycle is about to get real turnt up real quick and we are in for another contentious primary that nobody planned for.
Remember the last couple of years of Dubbya's presidency when it was all-but-decided that Hillary would clinch the Democratic nomination? And then Obama and John Edwards jumped in the ring? And she took the leftovers and served as Secretary of State instead?
That’s about to happen again and I’m actually afraid for Hillary if Cory Booker or Elizabeth Warren snatches this nomination out from under her.
Less than a quarter of Republicans believe that electing more women to Congress would be a good thing, according to an ABC News/Fusion poll released on Wednesday.
About 60 percent of Democrats and 43 percent of Americans overall said that it would be a good thing if more women were elected to Congress, the poll found. Only 23 percent of Republicans said it would be a good thing, while more than two-thirds of Republicans said it makes no difference to them.
Sexting is dumb. Sexting is really dumb when you’re a politician. Sexting is the most dumbest of the dumb when you’re a politician who resigned because of sexting then continued to do soand later attempt to make a political comeback!
Lincoln was a Republican. And Democrats used to be racist. So how did that get turned around? There’s an article going around from Forward Progressives about the racial history of Republicans and Democrats.
It’s a pretty good read, but I’m mostly interested in the Voting Rights Act.
And I am completely disgusted. All of Obama's gun reforms were watered down and bandied about and altered for gun-supporters for so long, I already knew this would fall into the same two-party pattern we've become accustomed to.
Democrats propose something. Republicans hate it. Democrats compromise. Republicans do not. Democrats compromise further. Republicans do not. Democrats give up. Everybody goes home to sit on their piles of money.
This looks like a press move and it only seems generous on the surface. Obama needs to either leave it alone or come up off the cash, because the only thing this stunt shows is that he has a ton of money and is totally not hurt by any sequester or furlough.
Rich people don’t care about jobs or a living wage. Rich people have access to politicians who shape policy. Therefore, politicians don’t care about jobs or a living wage.
And if you believe otherwise, you’re probably delusional. Or rich.
America’s super-rich are both more likely to be politically active and have access to lawmakers, a recent study from Benjamin Page and Jason Seawright, professors at Northwestern University, and Larry Bartels, a professor at Vanderbilt University. But those wealthy Americans tend to have political priorities more in line with those found oncable news networksthan in Americans homes, the study found.
