T and R, jcb!! ☮️🙂👍 Talk about stupid. Hubster played me a CNN link earlier today of a DeSh#tface ad. It literally had the voice of god rumbling that on the 8th day of creation, DeSh#tface was anointed by the almighty to be re-elected. I kid you not. It was taken down, but not before how many idiots saw it. The stupid, it burns.😡

Could this be worse?

Aint…this is the one. Thanks!! That isn’t even a decent Paul Harvey impersonation. 🙁 You see why I’m so embarrassed by being a long time (next to a native) Floridian. Words almost fail me. Feldman is hitting the nail right on the head. DeSh#tface is an evil, lying, POS bully, not a fighter. But man, this dumbed down, broken, corrupt country eats the stupid up. For real.

I feel your pain Orl, from a once proud progressive state with Forward as a motto to a regressive gerrymandered state. Embarrassed to the the max and a profound sadness of what we now are.

Election eve, “I’ve got a bad feeling about this” If only the Dems had a better track record on voting Midterms i’d be more confident. but 🤞🤞🤞🤞!!!!!!
My vote was confimed about 10 days ago so its Tom Petty chorus time;

The waiting is the hardest part
Every day you see one more card
You take it on faith, you take it to the heart
The waiting is the hardest part 🙂

Obama did the right thing.

This is the second data guy that I’ve seen on this podcast in the last week and they both give me hope for the dems. The segment starts at about the 50-minute mark and ends about the 27-minute mark.

If the young folks represented by these dudes turn out en masse, then we have a reason to celebrate. The FL Media is doing everything it can to let us know that it will be a yuge GOPuke wipeout. No lie.

I did not see young people in lines today. I hope it’s just that they slept in late and now getting out there.

The Trib reports mail-in balloting is up in IL, but early vote down overall compared to 2018

As of early Monday, the Illinois State Board of Elections reported that nearly 1.2 million of the state’s more than 8.7 million registered voters cast early ballots either by mail or at in-person voting sites. With one day to go, that’s down compared with 2018 figures when more than 1.56 million voted early and mailed-in their ballots. However, the number of returned mail-in ballots in 2022 are up compared to 2018 with more than 544,000 having been returned so far this year compared with 427,000 total in 2018.

In Chicago, as of Sunday night, 237,219 ballots, either vote-by-mail or in-person early votes had been cast, down about 37,000 from a similar time frame in the 2018 midterms, the Chicago Board of Elections said.

It will be interesting to see how many will be taking advantage of the state holiday tomorrow for voting. I think this was voted in by the Legislature as a test to see if more citizens, especially those in college, would take advantage of such an opportunity.

Howie Klein from Down with Tyranny gives his opinions on today’s races in this article.
Are Conservative Voters Dumb Enough To Fall For Russian Social Media Propaganda Again?
You Bet They Are!

This morning, Bess Levin devoted her Vanity Fair column to a long list of the worst 2022 candidates— and there were so many she didn’t even have room for J.R. Majewski, Matt Gaetz, Paul Gosar, John Gibbs, Gym Jordan, Claudia Tenney, or Lauren Boebert! She did have room to define the team all these candidates are playing for, noting that the GOP now represents “absolute delusions about who won in 2020, an all-out war on reproductive rights and LGBTQ+ people, an acceptance of neo-Nazis and white nationalism, a complete and total aversion to the truth, an affinity for fascism, and a clear desire to bury democracy in a shallow grave.” I doubt many Republicans would even dispute her observations! These are her choice for worst of the worst— along with my forecasts for tomorrow):

Blake Masters (AZ)- probably lose

Don Bolduc (NH)- probably lose

Mehmet Oz (NJ)- probably lose

Herschel Walker (GA)- probably lose

Check it out for the rest of his forecasts at

This is the Vanity Fair article which Howie Klein quotes. It’s good.

Hope it’s true. I’m concerned about Warnock. Wasn’t a month ago, but Walker did not debate a second time, and he was probably wise not to as he made very few mistakes in the first debate.

Guess where the Russkies learned how to hone all this dumbing down/media/propaganda from? Not just places like Germany historically, but the ‘good ole’ USA. Aren’t we exceptional?
