    • Karl Dubhe

      noes…

  • PickyPecker
  • Jonty Coppersmith

    I can’t watch this hate fest.

  • another_steve

    Waiter, vomit bucket three, s’il vous plait.

  • Hue-Man

    Make it stop!

    • another_steve

      No.

      We’re all dead and this is purgatory.

    • coram nobis

      Lovely, lovely Ludwig Van, dedicated to Billbear.

    • MassageBear

      The sad fact is that GOPers haven’t realized the source of their pent up anger is due to the failure of more than three decades of trickle-down economics.

  • PickyPecker

    What will it be today? Plagerism? Racism? Nationalism? Frothing at the mouth hate of the ‘other?’ The possibilities are endless. YOUUUUGE!

    • Herald

      All the above! Why should they leave any of those out?

      • PickyPecker

        The never-ending buffet of hate in CrazyTown!

      • zhera

        They have a big tent!

  • zhera

    Good grief, that’s a nightmare line-up. Callista will be speaking as well? WTF?

    • Tempus Fuggit

      Oh, I doubt it; I think they’ve probably taken steps to contain the Callista outbreak.

      Wait, I mean Norovirus.

      Wait, no I don’t.

      • I read about that. It’d almost be enough for me want to contract it, then go sneezing and coughing onto the buffets and salad bars where GOPer RNC attendees are known to congregate.

  • james_from_cambridge

    I hear Melania is opening the convention again tonight but this time with an original speech…

  • Ninja0980

    Not sure if I can stand another day of this hatefest.

    • As I noted above, I can’t. JMG, absolutely. CNN or MSNBC news coverage? No. The RNC livefeed? Not a chance in hell.

    • Steverino

      The Animus Party (formerly known as the GOP), is defined by who and what they hate, not by who and what they support.

  • Tempus Fuggit

    Newt Gingrich and his current wife

    Snerk!

    (Terms and conditions apply. Marreege shall be sanctimonious unless and until it is rendered null and void by wife falling ill with cancer or another inconvenient disease or condition.)

    • coram nobis

      No, it’s “Newt Gingrich and his current wife, Ted Cruz”.

      See? Context.

      • Steverino

        Tee-hee, that’s how I read it, at first!

        • Todd Allis

          Me too!

    • zhera

      The Perks Of Being A Catholic.

      • Gustav2

        Yeah, only his last marriage REALLY counts with God because the other ones were not RCC.

        • clay

          . . . until he buys his next annulment.

  • djcoastermark

    I may tune in from time to time tonight, but to save my sanity, not a whole lot.

  • Gustav2

    In case you missed it:

    Hispanic Chamber of Commerce Endorses Hillary Clinton At The RNC

    http://talkingpointsmemo.com/livewire/hispanic-chamber-commerce-endorses-clinton

    • djcoastermark

      that is quite the kicker there.

    • Herald

      That is so sweet!

      “Palomarez said Trump frequently filed for bankruptcy, something he said a
      president cannot do. He also criticized Trump’s attitude toward women
      and minorities…. Hillary Clinton has run a campaign of inclusiveness and togetherness.
      That’s what we need. We need stability. We need people collaborating to
      move the economy forward.”

    • TuuxKabin

      You are just the ticket! Thank you for that. Improves my afternoon a bit.

    • coram nobis

      Fine, if they follow up with funding and GOTV.

    • bambinoitaliano

      That’s a smack right in that orange face!

      • JT

        Loved Psych.

      • Queequeg

        Tht orange face is a whole lot cuter than the one at the convention.

    • GREAT NEWS! And Cruz’s speech did not endorse Trump.
      Gustav, I love this pair of events!
      Ahahaha!

    • Queequeg

      That’s cool.

    • Michael Abbett

      Yeah I loved that!

  • I’ve decided I just can’t watch. I’ll gladly participate in sanity-saving JMG post-commenting…but subjecting myself to the rampant, unapologetic fascism-on-parade which is the Republican National Convention has damaged my equanimity entirely too much.

    • PickyPecker

      There are more and more of us opting out and relying on the JMG thread.

      • Yeah… Monday was kinda fun. But they got NASTY yesterday, and post dental-work meds probably made me more prone to the nausea and dismay of seeing them scream about Clinton being jailed and monster-shrieking hate and bigotry. And then there was Trump and his people not even satisfied with winning the nomination — they had to go stealing delegate votes and disqualifying others for no good reason.

        I got very drunk. And I slept for about 10 hours.

        The upside is we finally got some much needed rain here.

      • Lumpy Gaga

        So… freedom actually is free. Whaddayaknow?

      • TuuxKabin

        Only thread I rely on and stay with from morning tonight.

      • Lumpy Gaga

        And if EVERYBODY did that? What then, Mister?

        • We’d all have a good time.

          • Mark

            Yabba-Dabba-Do!

        • PickyPecker

          what she said. 🙂

        • JustDucky

          If everybody stopped listening to these loons? Champagne all around.

      • oikos

        I cannot watch this spectacle without screaming like a maniac at the tv or computer.

        • TrollopeReader

          My dog was wondering what that noise has been the past couple of nights ….

      • Friday

        Well, the NPR coverage gives something of a break cause there’s interviews and commentary, don’t know if that hides a lot of the nutjobbery but it gives an idea what kind of spin the media’s going for.

      • Joe knows who I am.

        It’s definitely a helluva lot more fun, as well as being more palatable.

    • james_from_cambridge

      They’re not getting the ratings they thought they would so that’s real good news. They’re slightly up from 2012 RNC convention but not by much and they haven’t come close to Obama’s two conventions, which were watched by close to 36 million people in both 2008 & 2012.

      http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/live-feed/tv-ratings-rnc-kickoff-melania-912119

      • Gustav2

        And the “Q” is emptying out before the last speakers…hmmm.

        • That is the one upside to Trump being unable to control his narcissism and putting himself on that stage every single night of the convention: The moment he leaves, everybody assumes the ‘festivities’ are over and start to file out — even though there are often a whole bunch more speakers left on the schedule that Trump ignored.

          • PickyPecker

            I wonder what that stage will smell like tonight?

          • Gustav2

            HAY!

          • “Ass.”

            Simple one word answers provided to obvious questions, on-demand.

            Cheetos

          • Gustav2

            What? You mean it is about the Republican Party, too, and not just him?

          • PickyPecker

            I’m hoping for smoke and laser-beams for his entrance this time. oh, wait….

        • perversatile

          -without one single pie being flung.

          • Snarkaholic

            Only because Chris Christie snatched them all off the buffet table first.

      • BobSF_94117

        I wonder what portion of the audience is just tuning in for the drinking-game aspect.

      • Sporkfighter

        “They’re slightly up from 2012 RNC convention but not by much…”

        When a three ring circus and the KKK join forces with a death metal Christian rock band, and together they can’t out-draw an Ambien trial, that tells you a lot.

    • I watched parts the first day and quite frankly it was turning into a love fest for a racist and a hate fest for Hillary Clinton with more lies against her than I’ve had hot dinners. I don’t need to subject myself to this, as others I will rely on the gorgeousness of JMG.

      I was watching the British TV view on the convention, one presenters strap line just summed it up for me “95% of people inside the convention are white and the opposite outside the convention (the protesters). This is exactly how I feel about why the GOP will never be for me, they don’t represent me as a gay man and damage the work I have done over the past 35 years to fight for equality for all. Up their bum, that’s what I say!

    • Derrick Johns

      BeccaM,
      I know how you feel. I fall asleep at about 8pm watching MSNBC. I wake up at about midnight. So, I see the whole parade of fascists. Last night I saw the beast from New Jersey (Christie) and that was about all I could take. Somehow I’ll manage to watch Pence tonight and the Grand Poopa tomorrow night. It will be difficult.

    • TrollopeReader

      We like your equanimity!

    • The_Wretched

      You’ll miss the rousing group goose-stepping finish.

    • David Milley

      I’m finding that between JMG and occasional forays into MSNBC, I’m getting all the coverage I need … or can stand.

    • bkmn

      Who knows what you could pick up just by putting your toe in that cesspool of a convention.

    • Mark

      I find – as i get older – that it is much more prudent to forgo the drama, bullshit, nonsense, lies, deceit, grandstanding, assholery bigotry, and hate of the GOP that cranks my blood pressure. I mean, sure, someday I am going to drop dead – and I’d rather it be from choking on a ham sandwich, or dropping a blow dryer in the tub, or just falling off my deck – rather than screaming at some bloomin Republican fascist xtianist asshole on the TV. It forces me to recognize the contempt I hold for the bastards which overly taxes muscle control – and can cause a Depends to fill in 3 – 2 – 1…..

      • Cboulder

        I’m kinda with you, I almost had a seizure when the GOP took Congress in 2010 and had to rush to the ER to get my level stabilized. Not cool. Take it easy.

    • perversatile

      Same here- Speaking Tonight’s line-up looks like
      3 generations of frat house rapist and one enabler.
      As my Granny often said,
      ”I’m getting too old to deal with this shit.”

      • clay

        Speaking of that lineup, take a look at that image and tell me that they did NOT make li’l Marco’s head bigger than the others on purpose. The graphics designer is trying to infantilize him, make Walker look even more like that stupid child, and emphasize Newt’s “round”ness.

        • perversatile

          -excellent observation

    • shellback

    • Stephen Elliot Phillips

      JMG and Huff Post here. Im having withdrawals from my rachel maddow but shes simply covering the convention and commenting with bri williams. so Im staying away from the news until after tomorrow

      • lenvus

        Me too. I keep turning on MSNBC at 6:00 (Arizona time) expecting to hear the soothing sound of Rachel Maddow. This Republican crap just has to end. Please for the love of Dog, now!

    • Queequeg

      I’m with you. All I’ve seen so far were a few seconds og Michelle Obama’s speech as read by Trump’s third trophy wife.

    • cleos_mom

      I’m taking it in small doses, relying on social media and satellite radio spots.

  • Todd

    Rubio ??

    Is he SnapChatting ? Cam4 ???

  • DH Esq

    I don’t know if I’m up to watching a third night of angry nobodies yelling at me.

  • Rebecca Gardner

    How many plagiarisms, and death threats are there going to be a the RNC 2016 blame and attack Hillary for everything, including the Lindbergh baby, Convention?

    OT but super asshole Jerome Corsi from WND is speaking to Michelangelo right now saying the Hillary is sick sick sick and on her death bed. Where the fuck do these mental midgets get this shit from?

    • Steverino

      Their ass, of course. Once they extract their heads from there, that is.

    • Slippy_World

      From that bastion of journalistic quality -Drudge .They report every time Secretary Clinton coughs to show her poor healthy. They can’t start runors that she’s from Kenya so this is the constant conspiracy -she’s in very poor health.

        Gentrification holdout FTW.

        • clay

          No, they’re going off the approved “parade route” and protesting the Mazzoni Clinic.

          BTW, the Broad & Lombard clinic is being converted as we type.

          • Lumpy Gaga

            To what?

          • clay

            Into an improved HIV/STI testing center, but all the labs will be moved to a remote location, so more space for patient service.

          • Lumpy Gaga

            I disapprove. I think that’s an inappropriate time/place for servicing anybody.

            I have to be at work, but here’s what Brian Sims is taking:

          • Lumpy Gaga

            Girl, you have Brian’s Tuesday agenda? I’ll take a long lunch.

          • David Milley

            (sniffle) ‘nd I’m gonna miss it. Hubby’s got medical testing scheduled for Tuesday. Looks to be a real party. The Chorus and the Band can get _very_ loud when it’s needed.

        • Max_1

          I have a kazoo …

            Get up!
            [Get on up!]

        • Lumpy Gaga

          I was kinda hoping to HEAR “Sex Machine” rendered on Tuba when I clicked. Maybe the PGMC can work up something by Tuesday.

      • Lumpy Gaga

        I’m having trouble, actually, locating that tee-shirt. Google searches quickly degrade to content about comedians.

        My guess is that they’re up to no good.

        In any case, band fags FTW.

        SUA — isn’t that how one calls hogs?

        • Lumpy Gaga

          NB:

          “Stand Up Americans”. The name of a crazy RWNJ org which exists but doesn’t seem to sell T-shirts.

          “Stand Up America”: The org for the crazy koran-burning “pastor” Moran. No T-shirts.

          T-shirt I found: Stadup comedian Mike Birbiglia sells inexplicable Tshirt s of a big orange-outlined bear at a mic.

  • Michael Rush

    I watched some of the last couple nights but not looking at this anymore ….,
    Watching people lie , name call and scapegoat with no one there to act as a referee is just pointless , the crowd that eats this shit up is sickening , there’s nothing to learn from it . Trump numbers will be up for a while for no other reason than he’s in the news everyday , hopefully he will be destroyed at the debates , I’m guessing he won’t even attend (in order to not humiliate himself ) and his crowd will say it’s a great move .

    any guesses on when Hillary announces vp pick?
    she’s adamant about sharing the news to supporters before any leaks happen. i think Obama was forced to email supporters at 2 am because cnn was about to report it was biden.
    my guess is late tonight ir tomorrow. also I’m guessing vilasack.. maybe perez

    • Lazycrockett

      Kaine yawn.

    • djcoastermark

      Hillary is scheduled to be in Orlando and Tampa on friday. The rumor is her VP pick will be announced at and or around one of these rallys. Hubs and I are trying to get into the rally in Tampa.

      • djcoastermark

        yipee! We just got a call on all the details, we’re going!

    • Only one of the previously reported short-listers excited me, and that was Warren. The names floated more recently — Kaine, Vilsack — would be really disappointing.

      GOP platform: LGBT Rights

      Traditional marriage and family, based on marriage between one man and one woman, is the foundation for a free society and has for millennia been entrusted with rearing children and instilling cultural values. We condemn the Supreme Court’s ruling in United States v. Windsor, which wrongly removed the ability of Congress to define marriage policy in federal law. We also condemn the Supreme Court’s lawless ruling in Obergefell v. Hodges, which in the words of the late Justice Antonin Scalia, was a “judicial Putsch” — full of “silly extravagances” — that reduced “the disciplined legal reasoning of John Marshall and
      Joseph Storey to the mystical aphorisms of a fortune cookie.”

      GOP Platform: Transgender access to bathrooms

      We emphatically support the original, authentic meaning of Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972. It affirmed that “no person in the United States shall, on the basis of sex, be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any education program or activity receiving Federal financial assistance.” That language opened up for girls and women a world of opportunities that had too often been denied to them. That same provision of law is now being used by bureaucrats — and by the current President of the United States — to impose a social and cultural revolution upon the American people by wrongly redefining sex discrimination to include sexual orientation or other categories. Their agenda has nothing to do with individual rights; it has everything to do with power. They are determined to reshape our schools — and our entire society — to fit the mold of an ideology alien to America’s history and traditions. Their edict to the states concerning restrooms, locker rooms, and other facilities is at once illegal, dangerous, and ignores privacy issues. We salute the several states which have filed suit against it.

  • billbear1961
  • CNN is reporting they have multiple sources who said John Kasich was offered what would’ve been basically a co-presidency as Trump’s VP.

    Donald Trump’s son tried to entice John Kasich with a position as the most powerful vice president in history, but he turned it down, multiple sources close to the Ohio governor told CNN Wednesday.

    Kasich would have been in charge of all domestic and foreign policy in a Trump White House, Kasich sources said.

    http://www.cnn.com/2016/07/20/politics/john-kasich-donald-trump-vice-president/index.html

    The Trump campaign, of course, is denying the reports. However, the CNN description reads exactly like the kind of presidency Trump would’ve wanted — one where he doesn’t actually do any of the work.

    If this story is true, my respect for Kasich just went up.

    • HZ81

      Just read about this and I am livid that our press continues trying hard to legitimize this lazy, idiotic clown.

      He doesn’t want to help anyone. He wants photo-ops with whoever will be his next wife on Air Force One. Clown doesn’t give two solid shits about working to help the country in any capacity.

      • Ninja0980

        Not to mention they hype Clinton’s “lies” yet say nothing about the fact Trump lies, lies and lies some more.

        • billbear1961

          The goddamned double standards, never a WORD about Rice or Powell or about W.’s White House and THEIR emails, the ones that they DESTROYED!!

          What little faith I had in the press is DEAD!!

          To watch them smile and joke about this EVIL man AND this EVIL party; to watch them behave as though they were respectable and responsible politicians offering the nation SANE choices for a modern, genuine democracy; as though HE weren’t a dangerous and inept SWINDLER; as though this were business as usual and his election and total control of the federal government by that party of ruthless SCUM wouldn’t TEAR this country APART!!

          They don’t CARE about this country, EITHER!

          I think they WANT to see him elected, want one crisis after another for their goddamned CIRCUS!!

          ALL they care about is ratings and ad revenues!!

            I worked for a television station in a major market owned by a major network. I can assure you that it IS all about eyeballs and dollars. I will say that my company was and still is one of the more responsible news organizations. In other words it was not faux nudes…uh….nooz…

            Reagan was the one who started the slow slide into the sewer, Donnie Badhair has been an enabler and cheerleader.

    • bkmn

      It is a clustertrump of a campaign.

    • DH Esq

      That certainly fits the rumors that Trump doesn’t really want to be President. He wants to be CEO, someone that just barks orders then expects everyone else to figure out how to implement.

      • Snarkaholic

        And then to make them his scapegoats – every time he fucks up.

      • cleos_mom

        More like Chairman of the Board.

    • Reality.Bites

      Maybe he just made it up to stick it to Christie.”Hey Chris. This is the job you weren’t offered despite months of toadying and I rejected but was offered despite openly fighting to prevent him winning and refusing to attend the convention in my home state!”

      Kasich is like a man who decided not to sail on Titanic because he somehow happened to see an iceberg in its future.

      • cleos_mom

        According to the Titanic exhibit we saw in KC a few years ago, there was a passenger whose body was never found and was presumed dead. Turned out he was never on the Titanic because he’d been “shanghaied” onto a merchant ship and only got away a few years later.

        There must be a present-day political parallel there.

  • Talisman

    I engaged with a cow-irker in politics today. I normally don’t do so, because I have to work with these people, and really don’t want to feel any rancor towards them. However, I got caught up in the moment.

    Her: Trump will be good on immigration, and that Hillary and Obama would simply let “them” walk right over.
    Me: Obama has sent multiple immigration bills to Congress, but the Republicans refused to act on any of them.
    Her: They were probably stupid, because (and I quote(, “Obama’s an idiot”.
    Me: So that makes it OK for the Republicans to simply refuse to work with him?
    Her: Yes.

    This is what we’re up against. It’s not about critical thinking or facts; it’s about feelings, and they rather vote for a proven liar, a proven adulterer, a proven huckster, than consider a Clinton.

    • Sadly, your coworker’s definition of ‘good on immigration’ means she thinks it’s perfectly fine to discriminate on the basis of ethnicity, national origin, or religion.

      And once more support for Trump proves to be an accurate litmus test as to the intelligence and decency of any given human being…

    • m_lp_ql_m

      Your cow-irker’s white, I assume?

      • Talisman

        and christian.

        • m_lp_ql_m

          And people wonder why I take such a hand mainline anti-religion stance. I don’t care how progressive you think you are, if you’re religious, you’re supporting this idiocy, if only by sheer power-of-numbers.

      • Reality.Bites

        It’s not nice to irk cows, but if you must do it, at least do it yourself and don’t pay a cow irker

    • Clive Johnson

      I see evidence of what you experienced all over the place.

      A friend of my folks is a right-wing gun nut and thinks the range of public issues we’re facing pretty much always is connected to guns.

      My tea party father in law has expressed the view that Obama might cancel the election.

      There’s almost no space between this kind of outrageous stupidity and the GOP’s platform.

      We have armies of right-wingers who are hopelessly ignorant, resistant to self-criticism, in thrall to endless false beliefs, and super angry that the rest of the country disagrees with them. Increasingly they want a violent solution to all of it. They can’t really define what they’re against beyond the simplest of slogans, but by golly they’re going to take their country back!

      >Her: They were probably stupid, because (and I quote(, “Obama’s an idiot”.

    Oh no you didn’t invoke us in an obvious pander

  • FancyThat

    We need to call a time-out on the RNC viewer drinking game — where everyone takes a shot when the person at the podium invokes Jesus.

    It’s a fun idea, but too many people are dangerously enduring alcohol poisoning on a nightly basis here, and too many folks are unconscious before the RNC’s ‘Burn the Witch’ show even gets going.

    For Wednesday evening, may I suggest something less toxic to give peoples’ livers some time off this evening. Maybe have a wank or give your pet a snuggle or yell, “NOOOOOOOOO!!!” out the window. Whatever it takes. Maybe only do shots when some loon onstage says Lucifer or Satan. Just a suggestion.

    • ByronK

      How about everyone takes a shot whenever someone says something rational and intelligent.

  • Has anyone else found yourself trying to explain that you are not really considered “white” in the U.S.A. — and should not be held accountable for the Republican Party and Donald Trump? I tried and it did not work in a conversation with my friend in Barcelona today– here is how it went.
    _______________
    Friend in Barcelona — Everyone is talking about the Republican Convention and Trump and his wife’s speech in Spain today. How can all these people be so stupid? Do you know she copied the speech from Michele Obama?
    Eddie: Well you have to understand. The Republican Party of Donald Trump is the party of white people who lost their manufacturing jobs in the recession of 2008 and now work at McDonalds. They lost everything and hate everyone.
    Friend in Barcelona: Then why did Trump win the nomination? He is a stupid Fascist. What is wrong with your country?
    Eddie: Well, it is not my party. I am not considered a white person by these Republicans anyway. Don’t blame me for him.
    Friend in Barcelona: What you are not white? Look at you! You are so white you can’t even go to the beach in the summer! You are defintion of Yankee Gringo. I hope your nation does not elect this Trump idiot for everyone’s sake!

    • another_steve

      “Why does PBS / NewsHour coverage have Tony Perkkkins on??”

        If you’re using Firefox, it may be that the tracking protection being turned on keeps the tweets from showing. OTOH, there’s a pesky malware installer that keeps showing up when I turn off tracking protection to see the embedded tweets, so I only turn if off when I can’t stand not seeing the tweets. (The malware installer claims to be an emergency installation from Firefox. Don’t believe it.)

    • Lazycrockett

      attention sucking whore.

    • Kuka

      But how on earth would that stroke his ego?

    • He’s savoring the groveling of his defeated foes. Trump is sadistic in that way.

  • AtticusP

    I just googled “smarmy” and Ted’s picture came up.

    • houstonray

      Also works for “slimy”, “oily”, “insincere”, “creepy”, and “smug”.

  • TrollopeReader

    What a coward ..using a slain officer’s daughter as the lead-in to his “theme” for the day.

  • Clive Johnson

    What about King Jesus?

    • Adam King

      Jesus told Ted he was supposed to be president. Jesus lied to Ted. Jesus is mean!

  • AdamTh

    So Little Marco is endorsing Donald the con-man. I just lost what little respect I might have had for him in the future. And Lyin’ Ted is still just lying.

  • Max_1

    Odd… the Dallas police shooter thought it was his duty to constrain Government…

  • Skeptical_Inquirer

    Yet Ted cruz wants to be the theocratic patriarch of the US. That’s still a dictatorship, Ted.

  • fuzzybits

    Queen Ru Paul?

  • Cuberly

    Uh oh, get the cross.

  • Skeptical_Inquirer

    I want the US to be free of woo-woo and religion. That’s the message we need.

    • AJ Drew

      Amen! oops, I mean YES

    • m_lp_ql_m

      Depends on your definition of woo-woo

      • Skeptical_Inquirer

        Trickle down economics, that giving the rich more money means everybody becomes richer and that regulations are evil.

  • clay

    “I want to be free”

    How neither the Constitution nor the Declaration begins.

    • AtticusP

      Facts. Meh. This is the RNC.

  • Sam_Handwich

    where is this going?

    • DH Esq

      You’re expecting a coherent speech?

    • Lazycrockett

      straight to hell.

      • clay

        It’s a new-style hand-basket.

        • m_lp_ql_m

          that only white xians can ride in

  • Karl Dubhe

    ‘I want to be free’ to own other human beings as property.

  • Max_1

    9 police officers shot dead this last month…
    Congress can do something. Instead, they choose silence and prayer.
    There will be more, because people like Cruz think more death is the answer.

  • Blake Mason

    BENGAHZI!

  • bdsmjack

    His nose does look like a mini penis!

    • m_lp_ql_m

      hmmm, what’s bigger? Trump’s hands, or Ted’s nose?

      • ByronK

        The nose.

      • OdieDenCO

        and will one fit into the other? inquiring minds want to know

    • Blake Mason

      How fitting considering he is up Trumps ass now.(pun intended)

  • Ninja0980

    Bengahzi, DRINK

  • Steven Leahy

    I almost forgot how annoying his voice is.

    • fuzzybits

      Picture Ted Cruz and Sarah Palin doing karaoke.

      • TrollopeReader

        ugh. UGH !

  • Ninja0980

    Less cops have been murdered under Obama then both of the Bushes and St. Ronnie.

  • Lazycrockett

    muted.

  • AtticusP

    Demagogue AND zealot. Not a pretty combination.

  • MikeBx2

    Didn’t their leader tell them not to believe anything this guy says? Why are they clapping?

  • Max_1

    Odd… George W. Bush imported the original terrorists… Then, flew some of their backers out of the country two days after 9/11.

  • Bruno

    So after all that, Rump is getting endorsements from just about the entire establishment. Yeah, he’s sure different from those other Thuglicans.

  • DH Esq

    OMFG, he just complained about the populus not being as rich as Hillary or Obama. Total tone-deafness.

  • JoeMyGod

    NO ENDORSEMENT, per sources at NPR.

    HUGE embarrassment for Breitbart.

    • Oh, that would be something, if true.

  • m_lp_ql_m

    I swore I saw this guy the other day in the park pecking at bread crumbs

  • ultragreen

    Cruz is outraged by a peace treaty and the closure of a torture camp.

  • Ninja0980

    Tone deaf, aisle of one.

  • clay

    You’re free to choose your own doctor, it’s just that our capitalist system means you’ll have to pay for it.

  • AJ Drew

    He’s calling the DEMs for being rich? But wealth is Trump’s sole claim to his candidacy.

    • DH Esq

      Exactly. Boo rich people!

      Unless they’re Republican. Then, yay rich people!

    • We’re not supposed to remember that, when it is inconvenient. Haven’t you been attending the special DoubleThink training sessions?

    • clay

      He might refuse to endorse.

    • Max_1

      IOCIYAR

  • Ninja0980

    I thought wealth was a good thing?

    • DaddyRay

      Well now that he is broke after his failed campaign…

    • If you’re a Republican, yes. If not, then no.

  • Steven Leahy

    wow seriously?

  • Gustav2

    Bullshit

  • Bryan

    I’m pouring as we speak.

    • DaddyRay

      Make mine a double

      • Bryan

        I honestly was waiting for the other Trump brother to speak before I started tonight.

  • Sam_Handwich

    oh for cripes sakes

  • Skeptical_Inquirer

    Atheism is not a religion. Really not a hard concept.

  • clay

    “No safe spaces!”

    Well, good they didn’t have him speak the first night.

  • Ninja0980

    Oh do shut the fuck up.

  • AJ Drew

    Has he said the word “Trump” yet?

    • Not yet.

    • m_lp_ql_m

      I heard something similar, but it wasn’t from his mouth.

  • Omigod I think I just threw up in my mouth a little …

    • TrollopeReader

      just a little??

  • Sam_Handwich

    vadge probes for all!

  • Skeptical_Inquirer

    Oh, yeahhh, life is so precious unless you’re browner than Ted Cruz and less wealthy.

  • DH Esq

    Cruz just said gays deserved the right to live according to their beliefs? I wonder what the underlying dog whistle is supposed to be.

    • Bruno

      I do? So that means I can eliminate all organized religions from the planet?

  • Johnny Wyeknot

    I always thought churches were sanctuaries

  • Max_1

    Dear Ted,
    You do know that this two month vacation could be spent in Congress actually protecting police officers, if blue lives truly mattered, carving out gun legislation to protect our officers from mad men with guns… But you’re not!

  • Blake Mason

    The constitution is not set in stone. Amendments, anyone?

    • TrollopeReader

      We’ve moved from Moses’ stone tablets to the printing press, Ted.

      • TrollopeReader

        heck we’ve moved from the printing press to digital !

    • Constitution made slavery legal. We all know it never was a perfect document, and needed both amending and re-interpretation.

  • Sam_Handwich

    this is his poor attempt to kick start his 2020 campaign

    • Johnny Wyeknot

      Yup

      • Sam_Handwich

        like Crispy in 2012

        • Johnny Wyeknot

          And Reagan in 1976

    • AJ Drew

      *That* makes some sense of this rambling, and uncharacteristic, mess.

    • AtticusP

      If they can nominate Trump, they could nominate this weasel.

    • OdieDenCO

      NPR was speculating on that questions earlier. They predicted, yes, this will be the first campaign speech of the 2020 election

      • Blake Mason

        that would be predicated on Trump losing in 2016… NPR, you shady bitch.

  • AtticusP

    Not when it comes to civil rights!

  • Lazycrockett

    Man these people are really pissed off that they can’t say N*gg*r anymore.

    • Vista-Cruiser

      Oh no, they say that word all the time. But only among themselves.

  • Ninja0980

    This is a 2020 audition and nothing more.

  • ultragreen

    States rights? Make slavery legal again Alabama? Ban gays from having jobs in Florida? Ban blacks from voting in South Carolina?

  • Skeptical_Inquirer

    He might as well have read a Dr. Seuss book.

    The fundies have no problem invading other states to shove their shit down others’ throats. Does that mean blue states can use the 2nd amendment to make them go the hell away?

  • ByronK

    Is he really that fucking dense? Ya, the GOP doesn’t want any control of what people do with their lives. I can’t believe how repulsive he is.

  • NZArtist

    The irony is strong with this one.

    • DaddyRay

      As well as the projection

  • Ninja0980

    State Rights AKA wanting to discriminate with no one to stop us.

  • Steven Leahy

    I’m surprised he used the word “gay”. I am so accustomed to the standard right-wing “homosexual”

    • NZArtist

      Yeah, same.

    • m_lp_ql_m

      He probably actually means “happy”

      • Steven Leahy

        That’s what it DID mean, until we stole it!

        • edrex

          and they can pry it from my cold, queer hands.

    • Gustav2

      He discovered the 1970’s

    • Bruno

      Seems to be something new the last few years. That may be one of the few concessions frightwangers have made to acknowledge the growing acceptance of gay people.

  • Lazycrockett

    Well he will never be on a convention stage again.

    • DaddyRay

      Ramen

  • clay

    So, NOT trade deals.

    • Republican trade deals = perfect. Democratic ones = evil.

    • ultragreen

      Amazing. Republicans are now saying they are against free trade after voting for every free trade bill for the past 25 years.

  • DH Esq

    As terrible and offensive as Trump is, I think Cruz would have been an even worse choice.

    • clay

      False equivalency– it’s Cruz vs. Pence.

  • tco

    If we take out the Alien Queen, will the hive mind self-destruct? (Sorry, I just saw ID: Resurgence).

  • ultragreen

    “Build a wall to keep America safe.”

    That doesn’t sound like the Land of the Brave and Free.

  • AJ Drew

    Wow, he is walking a thin line between supporting Trump without saying “Trump”. Interesting.

    • Gustav2

      Only one person said he was going to endorse

  • Sam_Handwich

    he ‘congratulated” trump at the start….on his nomination

    any other mentions?

    • clay

      He said “wall” . . . ?

  • Lazycrockett

    Pat yourself on the back white people.

  • AtticusP

    Has he endorsed Trump yet? I missed it.

  • halfwaythere

    Wait, what?!?!?

  • ByronK

    The moon wasn’t freedom, it was a pissing match with the USSR. Idiot.

  • Max_1

    If freedom raises wages:
    When the GOP argue that the minimum wage should be done away with…
    … Are they for freedom?

  • AtticusP

    Free-dumb.

  • Just saying this: If Cruz gets to the end of his speech without explicitly endorsing Trump, I will raise a glass to him.

    • David Milley

      I’ll raise at least one finger to him …

    • Bruno

      To me, the endorsement is implicit just by him speaking at tRump’s coronation.

      • clay

        Might be telling, however, that the RNC wouldn’t place him on Monday.

  • DaddyRay

    The media won’t share it because it isn’t true

    • Cuberly

      Decades in between don’t count.

  • NZArtist

    Wait isn’t that the antithesis of the states rights he was on about earlier?

  • Skeptical_Inquirer

    He’s saying all this to an audience that if anything is whiter than the one for Mittens.

  • clay

    Lincoln, such a huge advocate for states rights. Nixon, such a huge advocate for voting rights.

  • AtticusP

    And old Abe is spinning in his grave right about now.

  • Steven Leahy

    I am so glad to learn republicans are the champions of civil rights. I learn so much here!

    • Cuberly

      Well, the media just doesn’t tell us! /s

    • ultragreen

      And here I thought they were against civil rights, like allowing blacks to vote, or protecting gays from discrimination.

  • Lazycrockett

    Im going to vomit.

    • Sam_Handwich

      i’ll hold your hair

    • clay

      you need a “family assistant”?

    • m_lp_ql_m

      You should be on that stage then. Better than what I’ve seen so far

  • Ninja0980

    In my desk drawer, my husband and I have the legal documents we needed to carry with us in case we went to a non equality state.
    Even then, no assurances they would keep us safe if the worst happened.
    And yet Cruz wants to say gay people in this country has freedom?

    • We still have ours, too. After we married, finally, a few years ago, we retired those papers.

      Cruz would have us have to carry them again, not just outside our state but within it as well, because a gay couple who said they were married would once again be presumed to have no such legal status.

  • Ninja0980

    The Republican Party that did all those things no longer exists Ted.

  • halfwaythere

    Cruz, you might want to read your crowd, calling for love and all that…..

  • AtticusP

    Then resign!

  • Chris H.

  • Lazycrockett

    He’s not going to do it.

  • DaddyRay

    Even the monitor behind him was cracking up

  • AtticusP

    Don’t worry Ted. I’ll be out voting for Hillary.

  • Bryan

    Rough crowd.

  • Ninja0980

    Time to start reading green eggs and ham again.

  • DH Esq

    Cruz: “Don’t stay home in November.”
    and
    Cruz: “Vote for candidates you feel will be faithful to the constitution.”

      Was it the underwear story again?

  • Lazycrockett

    and on cue cruz’s dad opens fire.

  • Ninja0980

    Trust me Ted, I won’t be staying home in November, I’ll be out voting to stop Trump and help flip my congressional district from red to blue.

  • Sam_Handwich

  • AtticusP

    • Sam_Handwich

  • DaddyRay

    Get the popcorn

  • ultragreen

    Yeah, Cruz’s dad fled the U.S.-supported Baptista regime after supporting Castro.

  • Cuberly

    Oy, here we go. Momma, Daddy…..

  • Blake Mason

    LOL… this is ridciulous

    • Bryan

      It’s beautiful, like a flower.

  • Michael Smith

    His speech is as boring as a Sunday sermon.

  • DH Esq

    THE AUDIENCE FUCKING HATES HIM

    • DaddyRay

      See – we can find common ground

    • TrollopeReader

      as well they should!

  • TrollopeReader

    Leaders who “cast aside anger for love” — y’all mean like the NH delegate that said that Hillary should face a firing squad? Y’all mean the line “Lock Her UP!” is “love and not anger. You disgust me you vile, and nasty, nasty man. There is a reason your daughters despise you. You’ve no conception of “freedom” … and the Cuba your Dad fled –the prison and torture is the Cuba of Batista — which you want people to think is Castro. Lyin’ Ted indeed.

  • Ninja0980

    LMAO, what a trainwreck.

  • SoCalGal20

    This is hilarious. Are they going to throw him to the lions?

  • Cuberly

    Are they screaming endorse trump?

    • I believe so.

    • OdieDenCO

      yep

    • Sam_Handwich

      yes…the NY delegation is trying to get it going

      • Bruno

        Figures. Loudmouths.

  • Sam_Handwich

  • Blake Mason

    Well… this is awkard

  • NZArtist

    Is he being booed for not endorsing Trump? Awesome!

    • lenvus

      Yes, it appears so.

    • Johnny Wyeknot

      He signed the pledge

  • ByronK

  • Ninja0980

    HAHAHAHA

  • Michael Smith

    “God bless the United States”

    “BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO”

  • Fuckin’ awesome.

  • Sam_Handwich

    well that was a giant fuck you.

    i suspected as much

    • DH Esq

      Cruz finds it easy to make new friends, doesn’t he?

  • Blake Mason

    Lyin’ Ted.

  • AtticusP

    He didn’t endorse him. Hahahahahaha!!!

  • Unless I missed something, there wasn’t an endorsement.

    • You did not miss anything. Cruz congratulated Trump by name for winning the nomination at the very, very beginning of his speech, and then never again mentioned him.

  • NZArtist

    Holy fucknuckles.

  • m_lp_ql_m

    Several people on the floor were like, “Pay up!”

  • OdieDenCO

    he even said to vote you conscience. hahaha!

    • m_lp_ql_m

      For repubs, that would mean not voting.

  • lenvus

    That was AWESOME! ‘Merikuh, Fuck yeah!

  • Johnny Wyeknot

    Still booing as Trump enters the auditorium! Hilarious

  • Cuberly

    Imagine that, Cruz refusing to be a team player.

    • clay

      He just “Chrispied” himself for 2020.

      • Cuberly

        Yep.

    • halfwaythere

  • DaddyRay

    Someone is not going to get his campaign debts settled

    • Sam_Handwich

      actually, i bet he’s done pretty well tonight in fundraising

      • clay

        and his superPAC still had significant cash on hand. He will not, however, be getting any help of any kind from the RNC or the Senate Reelection Fund.

  • Blake Mason

    China… the counrty who pays by the piece.. is ripping of the US

  • DaddyRay

    Next the audience starts chanting – Lock Him Up

  • Lazycrockett

    “He signed the Pledge” jesus christ.

  • m_lp_ql_m

    What’s that scar on his forehead?

    • Blake Mason

      He’s a wizard!

    • Sam_Handwich

      his daughter went after him with a cast iron skillet

    • David Milley

      The Trump brand?

  • Cuberly

    So the only reason he did that was as an audition for 2020?

    • DH Esq

      Ahem, 2024.

      • m_lp_ql_m

        And 2028.

      • Cuberly

        lol….not that it’d be successful. He’s far from national stage ready.

  • JoeMyGod

    THAT was the ONLY fun of this entire Nuremberg Rally.

    • AtticusP

      So far…

  • Tor

    Not watching the speech, but following all your comments as they pop up. Quite fun really, and I think I’m getting the real sense of the convention. From our POV, of course.

    • OdieDenCO

      right there with you. this is the most fun I’ve had all week

  • ByronK

    But I’m sure Bondi is going to dominate the headlines now….heheheh

  • Tomorrow’s headlines, replacing the Melania plagiarism ones: “Ted Cruz refuses to endorse Trump, tells GOP voters to vote their conscience.”

  • Michael Smith

    I see the Patrick Bateman lookalike contest has started.

    Oh, it’s just the Trump kids.

  • JoeMyGod

    The booing was especially loud for Cruz because so much of it came from the New York delegation which has the entire front center section at the stage.

    • DH Esq

      Party unity, bitches!

    • cleos_mom

      Traditionally it’s the delegation from the convention’s host state that gets front-and-center seating. Not this time, presumably on Trump’s orders. Hopefully it’s a karmic preview.

      • clay

        Apparently they were placed by % won by Trump.

  • Skeptical_Inquirer

    God what an awful chant.

  • ByronK

    Wow Trump looks pissed…

    • Tor

      He thought this was going to be his piss-on-Cruz moment, and it got turned the other way!

    • David Milley

      Kinda fun to watch Ivanka desperately making “let it go” motions at her father …

      • Bruno

        This smells like pre-scripted reality television shenanigans to me…

        • David Milley

          Could be … with Cruz as the “bad guy” in the ring.

          • Bruno

            He’s become the “establishment guy”…somehow.

    • Got that right.

  • houstonray

    ….

  • Michael Smith

    When I think Trump, I think bro country.

    • Six Pins Delores

      Trump makes me think of gold platted cheap crap

  • AJ Drew

    sing along…. “Wanna be like Trump, with a hooker in the trunk…” wait, what?

    • DaddyRay

      LOL

  • Piercedchrlz

    All the Trump boys have facial scars?

    • Lazycrockett

      Makes them manly.

      • Piercedchrlz

        Or brought into line….

    If this is their original music, time for the band to go back to covers.

    • Cuberly

      Sounds like filler….yeah, filler between calming down the NY delegates…lol…

  • Cuberly

    So are we witnessing music being played over protests from the crowd?

    • Yeah, it’s like one of those old-timey vaudeville shows. When the acts went bad, they’d bring out the clowns.

      • David Milley

        Here, the clowns themselves are the bad act.

      • Cuberly

        lol…or jugglers…

    • clay

      music about TRUMP being played over protests.

  • DH Esq

    Can someone show Trump how to tie a tie? They’re always comically long.

    • James

      He thinks it’s slimming.

      • Lazycrockett

        Yep delusional.

    • Drewco

      Compensating

    • David Milley

      Shhh … don’t tell him. It draws the eye down to his tiny … hands.

    • Steven Leahy

      OK who wants to stand behind him and tie it for him? LOL

        That too, yes…

  • Sam_Handwich

    who’s next? eric or gingrich

    • DaddyRay

      Does it even matter – whatever they say will not be reported on after the Cruz moment

  • Drewco

    Pink Floyd had a song about these people:

  • Skeptical_Inquirer

    Is it the feed or is their equipment making the occasional fritzy noise?

    • Blake Mason

      it looks like power issues in the forum

  • Blake Mason

    are they having power issues int he arena?

    • Bruno

      Yes, many inside are unwilling to cede power to Donald Trump.

  • Oh man did Cruz just dump all over Trump. He did not endorse Trump and told them to vote their conscious. Republicans are pissed off beyond belief!

    • Skeptical_Inquirer

      That’s Cruz for you.

      • ByronK

        Plays so well with others…

      • Well Trump said his father killed JFK with Oswald right?

  • Bryan

    WOW.

  • Lazycrockett

  • Kuka

    That part in the hair. So he won’t look too much like Odo.

    Eric Trump: “The man we love so, so, so, so, so, so much!”

    Jesus christ, where is the ballerina speechwriter when you need her?

    • clay

      Riiight, like this is the Trump National Convention.

    • ByronK

      They’re all dreading being in a room alone with him later.

  • clay

    “Ten years ago”? Liar.

  • Blake Mason

    ok… to many brains cell lost tonight… to bed I go

    • G’nite Blake

    • Bryan

      Hold onto them, they’re precious.

    • OdieDenCO

  • NZArtist
    • clay

      Yeah, he’s a bit fuzzy, and not in the good way.

  • ultragreen

    Are these kids really Trumps?

  • Lazycrockett

    Well Cruz will be the top story tonight so thats 3 days in a row of misfire.

    • Skeptical_Inquirer

      I hate Cruz but I enjoy what he did.

      • Lazycrockett

        You know this is all coming down from the RNC establishment.

  • Karl Dubhe

    The time had come, to commit him to a home for the unstable aged.

    For some reason they thought that meant the White House.

  • Steven Leahy

    Damn how many kids does Trump have? They keep coming out of the woodwork.

    • Skeptical_Inquirer

      And that’s the legitimate ones we know about.

    • Johnny Wyeknot

      Sun’s down

    • AtticusP

      I think he had a couple with Sally Hemings…

    • TrollopeReader

      That’s what happens with multiple wives (and others).

  • AtticusP

    Stupid people multiply. It’s a fact.

  • DaddyRay

    Is the Pharma douche

    • DH Esq

      Close, but wrong billionaire douche.

  • James

    Turning political debates into must see tv is part of the problem

  • ultragreen

    Yeah, Trump has inspired us to laugh at him.

  • Cuberly

    Um, dem voter registration beat rethug registration by a HUGE margin…why do they keep claiming that.

  • Ninja0980

    Cruz just threw a giant bomb tonight, GOOD!

    • Yes he did. And I’m keeping my promise to lift a glass to him.

      It’s single-malt, but not the good stuff.

  • Clive Johnson

    Huh…public service no longer a noble career? Might this have something to do, however hard it is to imagine, with the Republican demonization of government?

  • MB

    Awww, Teddy just busted Mikee’s special night at the prom 🙁

  • Cuberly

    Oh fer fucks sake….

  • Sam_Handwich

    WAR ON CHRISTMAS!!!

    • Lazycrockett

      EVERYBODY DRINKS!

    • Cuberly

      Celebrating christmas will be MANDATORY! Christmas police will be dispatched to enforce this!!!

      • clay

        Michele Bachmann– Our Jews will say Merry Christmas more often.

    • TrollopeReader

      O’Reilly is creaming right now!

    • ultragreen

      The US Postal Office will inspect all Christmas cards to make sure they say “Merry Christmas,” instead of “Happy Holidays.”

    • MB

      Kirk Cameron is choking on his banana-man.

  • James

    His eyes are too close together

    • m_lp_ql_m

      Nothing in his head to keep them apart

    • He has his mother’s face, but his father’s head.

  • Skeptical_Inquirer

    Did he almost just laugh in the middle of his speech?

  • ultragreen

    Oh, so you are going to force feed the Pledge of Allegiance… to Trump on those poor kids.

  • Ninja0980
  • Piercedchrlz

    LOVE IT! People in the aisles prompting and encouraging when to applaud! Priceless!

  • Michael Smith

    A 70 year old man at the pinnacle of his career

    • clay

      He’s gray and old and crying . . . isn’t how Cruz described those at the end of their lives?

  • JoeMyGod

    It’s being reported on Twitter that Heidi Cruz had be hustled out by security while Trump supporters screamed “GOLDMAN SACHS!” at her.

    • Bruno

      *Dead*

    • Cuberly

      Oh wow.

    • Damn…

    • Skeptical_Inquirer

      I honestly can’t see Heidi Cruz being on board with another run to the White House.

  • Johnny Wyeknot

    Pink tie?

  • AtticusP

    I keep forgetting: is this Beavis or Butthead?

    • KCMC

      yes

    • James

      It’s Dickhead.

    • TP for his bunghole.

  • AJ Drew

    When was the last time we had a true budget surplus? Bill Clinton, perhaps? Hmm.

  • MB
  • Cuberly
  • Answer this poll. If a gun were held to your head and you had to chose between Donald or Eric Trump who would you chose? Note that I did not say for what.

    • m_lp_ql_m

      The gun.

      • ^ This. Unless it was a choice as to who gets sealed into a full septic tank first. Then the decision would make itself.

    • Tigernan Quinn

      I guess Eric, solely because he’s not strung out on diet pills. In theory.

    • Friday

      I’d take my chances with the gun. 🙂

  • Michael Smith

    “Ask not what your country can do for you. Ask what you can do for Donald Trump”

    How this original speech concludes.

  • MikeBx2

    Sorry if it’s been asked and answered, but where is Melania? Have we seen her?

    • Lazycrockett

      “She just wants to stay home and raise her family.” Bullshit.

    • ByronK

      She’s um, resting. Ya, that’s it! She’s resting.

    • DH Esq

      You have to store her in her original box or her resale value is diminished.

  • Sam_Handwich

    this is retarded

  • TrollopeReader

    Um, Eric … the “Art of the Deal” author is now disavowing every word ….

  • AtticusP

    This is so pathetic. Whoever he plagiarized this from is really lame.

    • DH Esq

      Take that back! Trump only steals from the BEST!

    • AJ Drew

      lolz… it’s funny cuz it’s probably true!

  • TK
  • Steven Leahy

    Ugh

  • NZArtist

    Back to the money talk again. This is a farce!

    • Bryan

      I actually miss Joni Ernst.

  • Michael Smith

    Because business projects = government experience. Ask Herbert Hoover about that.

    • Drewco

      I’m reading a biography of FDR, and Hoover’s response to the Depression was eerily like the modern Republicans: If we only get out of the wealthy’s way, good times trickle down.

  • AJ Drew

    Well, when you don’t pay anyone for their work, you too can come out under-budget

  • ultragreen

    He’s complaining about NYC? Wasn’t NYC run by Giuliani and Bloomberg, two Republican governors?
