Some truly sickening people went to a Biden event today with a coffin. I'm not going to blame any campaign for this as there's no real evidence of who the group supports, but it's just another reminder of why I don't consider myself very tied to what this party has become.

I feel this'll end with Pete Buttigieg eating collard greens and playing the Dozens with Rev. Al Sharpton.

The Tonight Show's talent booker just had the weirdest sensation all of a sudden ...

(Never forget the Hairfluff Follies and how damn hard the MSM will work to legitimize anything.)

It still amuses me that purer than pure Bernie has also appeared on that show.

But really, I bet it was Bernie Bros. Would anyone else go this far?

Bernie would show up to the opening of a door. And the bros and gos would insist a door had never been open in such a way before.

Shots fired. I was wondering why the tweet of the protestors with a Biden coffin suddenly vanished. I suspect it was because they got a heads-up this was coming. Bloomberg just became a hero to a lot of people who have been attacked by Berners for years.

@marceline that is a very powerful ad. And they could have gone on and on. I'd never seen the cartoon of the Grim Reaper coming to murder everyone involved with each campaign. Absolutely disgusting. The longer this goes on the more I believe someone is going to be incited into assault or murder. I remember the bros talking about how the CNN report on them contained nothing but harmless comments. I guess they will make the same claim here, but I just hope there are enough voters in Nevada who might see this and slow him down (he's projected to win but with enough support ebbed elsewhere he might still lose some delegates).

The intersection of a potentially catastrophic communicable virus with political cronyism is a dangerous thing.

 

https://www.msn.com/en-nz/news/world/coronavirus-infection-found-after-cruise-ship-passengers-disperse/ar-BB104WtX?li=BBqdmGR&fdhead=nohdflt2

 

 

"In Cambodia, the cruise line found a country whose leader, closely allied with Chinese officials, has cast doubts on the seriousness of the coronavirus outbreak, which has infected some 68,000 people and killed more than 1,600 in China.

“Is there any Cambodian or foreigner in Cambodia who has died of the disease?” Prime Minister Hun Sen said earlier this month. “The real disease happening in Cambodia right now is the disease of fear.”

And on Friday, President Trump tweeted his thanks to Cambodia for allowing the ship, more than 600 of whose passengers were Americans, to dock."

 

So, all the other neighboring countries (Japan, Taiwan, Thailand, etc.) refused entry to this cruise ship but Cambodia, an ally of China and also a Communist country allowed the Westerdam cruise ship to dock in their port and allowed the passengers off the ship to take in the local sights and get massages, etc. Then Cambodian officials discovered that an American passenger tested positive for the coronavirus, (after taking the word of the Westerdam's management that there were no infections on the ship) already allowing hundreds of other passengers to depart from Cambodia's port to other destinations worldwide.  

Now apparently, there is a scramble to try to cull all those passengers to be tested.

Good luck with that.

So while Bloomberg and Biden are out here taking shots at Sanders he's also being attacked by his own fans for supporting the dairy industry. This is where purity testing gets you. (Also can I ask: when did protesting the dairy industry suddenly become the cool thing to do?)

 

Warning: nudity.

It's a dirty job, but somebody had to do it.

But seriously.  I agree with @DRW50.  That was a powerful ad.  Say what you will about Mike Bloomberg and his vanity campaign, but his ads on the internet, radio, social media and TV have been on point.  Come November, we HAVE to defeat Donald Trump.  Period.

That "diverse coalition" strikes again...

 

 

 

Mike Bloomberg's apology for his stop-and-frisk policy (which wasn't his policy, by the way; it was actually Rudy Giuliani's, but whatever) might have been feeble, but at least it WAS an apology.  Meanwhile, it's been how many years?  And Donald Trump still won't apologize for the ad he took out against the Central Park Five OR for his and his father's racist housing policies back in the '70's.

 

(Like I said, I'm willing to play the "What About...?" Game in this instance.)

 

We finally have a candidate in the Democratic Party whose well-oiled, well-monied political machine can match the GOP's, and this is the thanks we get.  SMH.

Not to mention they were asking a man who is no longer with us to apologize.

    • I'm pretty sure Chris was present when Kay Chancellor kicked the Fosters out of her house, after Jill, thinking she'd inherited the house from Phillip, moved the whole whip-stitch tribe to Foothill Road.  Wasn't there a big scene where Kay waltzed in and tossed all of them out.    Kay Chancellor and Lorie Brooks had a couple of scenes in 1979.  It was a complicated storyline.  Kay was "dead", having been "killed" in a fire at the sanitarium.  In reality, Kay had survived of course and was staying in the Foster home with Liz.  For several weeks, Liz was the only person who knew Kay was still alive; they had Kay's funeral and everything.  Jill was married to Stuart Brooks and was trying to bilk a divorce settlement from him.  Stuart was anxious to get rid of Jill and was willing to pay a premium to get her butt out of his house.  Brock had revealed to Lorie that, in his opinion, Jill was planning to extort a settlement from Stuart and then run away with Derek Thurston, profiting financially first from Stuart and then secondly from Derek.  Not knowing Derek Thurston, Lorie wasn't sure if this account was valid or not, but she HATED Jill and wanted to be sure Jill got $0 settlement from Mr. Brooks.  Liz babbled to Kay that Stuart was in the process of writing Jill a check for $150,000 to get rid of her .  Kay Chancellor, knowing how Lorie felt about Jill, called Lorie on the phone and said, "Lorie, this is Kay Chancellor.  No, I'm not dead.  Everyone just THINKS I am.  Now, lissssen to me, Lorie. Take the check that your father has written to Jill and rip it to shreds.  Tell Jill to just GO.  She's already made plans to swindle a fortune from my husband.  But I'll stop that as well, and she will get nothing.  Ab-so-lute-ly nothing."  Lorie snatched the check away from Jill and ripped it up.  Jill left Stuart's house with nothing at all, and then Kay herself interrupted Jill's next foray -- a wedding to Derek.  Kay and Lorie were pleased that they'd stymied both of Jill's get-rich-quick schemes.  I don't recall Jennifer Brooks ever interacting with Kay.  It would've been superfluous, as they were the same prototype character -- the vain, wealthy, society matron who depended upon male companionship for validation of their fading beauty.  I expect Bill Bell thought it would be wise to keep them separated, as Kay was simply a more flamboyant version of Jennifer.    
    • She was always fun when she appeared on Larry King Live dishing about old Hollywood. She was a good friend of Dame Joan Collins, who posted this tribute. 96 is quite a fabulous run.  
    • Hardly a week goes by without a network or streamer announcing some sort of reboot or re-imagining of an old TV series. So before the well runs dry I'm challenging our talented posters to submit their own. You can be as creative as you like, adhering to the original concept or using it as a starting point. If you have casting ideas, please include. Should be fun. To get things started Barnaby Jones (original 1973-80)Barnaby Jones is  a formerly retired investigator who with widowed daughter-in-law, run a private detective firm in LA. Jeddediah Jones, a much younger cousin Barnaby eventually joined the firm. Reboot Barnaby Jones is a 50 something silver fox who likes to use 'traditional' detective methods to solve crimes. Luckily his beautiful Asian  American daughter in law Betty Lin Jones is a tech wiz and can often step in to assist Barnaby. Also in the cast Barnaby's nephew Jed a 20 something Latin male who sparks some sexual tension with Betty. Harte to Harte  Original Hart to Hart  79-84 Self-made millionaire Jonathan and freelance writer Jennifer are the Harts - a globetrotting married couple with a talent for finding mysteries wherever they go.  Reboot Jonathan Harte is a young black tech billionaire who together with his influencer wife Gennifer play amateur detectives. Get the idea? Looking forward to your concepts.
