Big John, Big Bad John Looking Vulnerable

Sen. John Cornyn (TP-Texas) is not the most likeable guy under normal circumstances.  He has largely benefited from have the “R” next to his name on the ballot and being tall, distinguished looking and silver-haired.  Red is hard pressed to point to any real accomplishments of the senior senator that have actually helped any average Texans.  All of this seems to be catching up with Big John as the nation spirals into recession and pandemic and he steadfastly stands by the primary agent of doom (that would be Trump for those of you not paying attention).   Current polling has him underwater on job approval.   The poll from the University of Texas/Texas Politics Project poll shows Big John as being vulnerable less than four months out from election day.  His less than stellar approval rating and the Trump effect could pull him down.  In short, there is a chance – maybe a small one – that Cornyn will be the former senator from Texas come January.  That would be a glorious day.

State Fair of Texas Cancelled

Giant 'Big Tex' statue burns down after 60 years as State Fair ...

There are few things Red likes more than the State Fair of Texas held every October in Dallas.  Where else can you see the Governor, the Marine Drum and Bugle Corps, a full line-up of the latest automobile models, Tennessee Walking horses, pig races, steers, hogs, chickens, lambs, ducks, rabbits and llamas competing, Chinese Acrobats, Brenda Lee backed up by the Air Force Band, the Bearded Lady, the Human Pincushion, a sword swallower, a major college football game, old football players, a giant Ferris wheel, an assortment of thrill rides, art works, butter sculpture and other attractions while chowing down on corn dogs, fried snickers, giant burritos, funnel cake and just about fried everything else edible – all in one day?  Not to mention Red’s particular favorite – SkeeBall.  And yes, Red has seen and eaten all of that in just one day at the SFOT.

But not this year.  “With a heavy heart” the SFOT has announced that it will not open for the 2020 season.  “We believe the spirit of the Lone Star State lies in every Texan’s ability to care and look out for their neighbor and it is with this in mind, we have decided to keep our guests, staff, and partners safe and healthy during these uncertain times.”

Now Red is really pissed at the morons who have let this pandemic spiral out of control with their wishful thinking, refusal to acknowledge science and reality, and inability to shift course.  Yes, Trump and Abbott – Red is talking about you.

Mike Pence is a Groveling Bootlick

Mike Pence has the utter nerve to stand up at Today’s briefing to talk about personal responsibility for curbing the spread of COVID 19 and refuse to take the simple proven measure of wearing a mask because he might offend our Reality TV Show Joke of a President. What a complete disgrace this “man” is. Unlike our imbecilic President, Pence probably knows better. Trump’s narcissism and sociopathic tendencies apparently prevent him from processing information that even remotely challenges his worldview or threatens his grasp on power.  Pence has no such excuse and is thus even worse than Trump.

This Didn’t Age Well

Red is on the Trump campaign’s email list.  From time to time, Red likes to share some of the joy coming from the Reality TV Show Joke of a President’s campaign begging – along with commentary of course.  Red got this one on Saturday.

I’m about to go on stage (because I’m playing the role of POTUS – the part of a lifetime)  in Tulsa, Oklahoma to hold my very first Trump MAGA Rally in three months (deprived of oxygen I am).

I know the Fake News media (now including Fox News) won’t ever tell you the FACTS (it must be true if I put it in ALL CAPS) about what’s REALLY (REALLY) going on in our Nation (total shit storm) or about all of my administration’s hard work (that’s 11 am to 3 pm at least 4 days a week) to Keep America Safe, (Hey, if we can’t be great at least let’s be safe) which is why tonight is so important (uh oh!).
But, before I get on that stage for what will be our most EPIC rally ever (it was epic all right), I need to know that you’re still in this fight with me (killing an Antifa member would prove it).

I’ve asked my team to hand me an updated list of donors (what a bunch of suckers) who choose to step up at this critical time (one foot in a prison cell and the other on a banana peel), and I’ll be disappointed (more disappointed than I am in Eric) if I don’t see your name on there (does anyone really believe this BS?).

I’m going to review the Presidential Donor List right before the rally starts (I’ll be sitting on the can for my traditional pre-show shit), and I want to see that Red from Texas gave to show your dedicated support (and if not fuck you and the horse you rode in on).

 

 

Texas Democratic Party is Actually Raising Money!

The Texas Democratic Party is coming off of a successful (for it anyway) fund raising effort during its annual convention held in early June.   The TDP raised nearly $2 million during its week-long virtual convention, breaking the party’s digital daily and monthly fundraising record during the event.  The majority of the funds came from almost 39,000 individual donors with about $600,000 coming from corporate sponsorships.   The record haul pales in comparison to Texas GOP efforts, but with polls showing that Biden is within striking distance of the Reality TV Show Joke of a President expect the TDP to redouble its efforts between now and November.

If you are of a mind to make a difference Red suggests that you send some money to the Democratic candidates running for the Texas House in districts that could be flipped.  If the Democrats gain just 9 seats they will control the House and be able to keep the Texas Senate from continuing its incredibly successful and anti-democratic partisan gerrymandering of both State House and Senate districts and Congressional districts.

The GOP’s gerrymandering is so severe that even with 51% of the total congressional vote, it is estimated that Democrats would win only 13 of Texas’ 36 congressional seats. This still gives Tom Delay a hard-on.  The Texas GOP has two main strategies – try to make as hard as legally possible to vote and gerrymander the Democrats into permanent minority status.  This has to stop.

You can find the targeted districts here.   Even a small donation to the Democratic candidate in a state house race will be appreciated.

 

Quote for the Day

Donald Trump has been the worst president this country has ever had. And I don’t say that hyperbolically. He is. But he is a consequential president. And he has brought this country in three short years to a place of weakness that is simply unimaginable if you were pondering where we are today from the day where Barack Obama left office. And there were a lot of us on that day who were deeply skeptical and very worried about what a Trump presidency would be. But this is a moment of unparalleled national humiliation, of weakness.
When you listen to the President, these are the musings of an imbecile. An idiot. And I don’t use those words to name call. I use them because they are the precise words of the English language to describe his behavior. His comportment. His actions. We’ve never seen a level of incompetence, a level of ineptitude so staggering on a daily basis by anybody in the history of the country whose ever been charged with substantial responsibilities.
It’s just astonishing that this man is president of the United States. The man, the con man, from New York City. Many bankruptcies, failed businesses, a reality show, that branded him as something that he never was. A successful businessman. Well, he’s the President of the United States now, and the man who said he would make the country great again. And he’s brought death, suffering, and economic collapse on truly an epic scale. And let’s be clear. This isn’t happening in every country around the world. This place. Our place. Our home. Our country. The United States. We are the epicenter. We are the place where you’re the most likely to die from this disease. We’re the ones with the most shattered economy. And we are because of the fool that sits in the Oval Office behind the Resolute Desk.

On rare occasion, Red has nothing to add.

A Message from Your President

Red has somehow gotten on the Trump campaign’s mailing list and is subjected to a daily onslaught of Trumpian garbage.  Here is today’s sample:

Red,

I have something important to tell you.

I thought you were going to be one of my strongest supporters, but I noticed that you STILL haven’t contributed to our movement yet. Is this right? Take a look for yourself:
OFFICIAL RECORD

Name:  Red F. Texas
State: Texas

This is extremely disappointing. I know you’re better than that, which is why I’m reaching out with a one-time offer that you won’t be able to pass up.

For ONE DAY ONLY, when you make your FIRST contribution, you’ll automatically get added to the Official Donor List that my team is going to frame and hang in my office.
This offer is only available until 11:59 PM TONIGHT. If you fail to contribute, you may never have another chance to get your name on the Official Donor List.
Please make your FIRST contribution of ANY AMOUNT by 11:59 PM TONIGHT to get your name added to the framed Official Donor List. >>
I really want to see your name on that list, Red.

My team is getting it framed soon, and I’ll be disappointed if you miss your chance.

Please make a contribution of ANY AMOUNT by 11:59 PM TONIGHT to go down in history on the Official Donor List.

Thank you,

Donald J. Trump
President of the United States

First, who falls for infantile bullshit like this?  Do Trump Voters really think he is putting their names up on the wall of his “office”?  And that framers are out there just waiting for the call from his “team”?

Second, where is this “office”?  Is it the oval office?  If so, wouldn’t using government property for campaign purposes be illegal?  If not, is it some warehouse in New Jersey?  Of course, that office doesn’t exist and this is just more Trumpian conman speak.

The Worst President?

Red was talking with Red Jr. the other day and a thought crossed his mind.  Red was thinking, “at least Lil’ Red is somewhat lucky in that he has already almost lived through the worst American President he will ever see in his lifetime in Donald Trump.”

Red was about to speak up but then another thought came to mind.  When Red was a young man, someone older and wiser might have said to him, “Red you have just lived through the Nixon presidency and you will never see a worse American president for the rest of your days.”

Red kept quiet because he now knows that Tricky Dick has been lapped by the field.

Quote for the Day

“Folks this is not a protest. It is a well orchestrated attack on America’s major cities with plans to attack the police, riot, loot, and burn buildings. The so-called ‘protestors’ are, in fact, domestic terrorists who were organized and paid for by George Soros to further divide our country. These terrorists were bused into these large cities. We must repel this attack and hold those responsible for their actions. This must be brought to a stop now or we will lose control of our country!”

Sid Miller – Texas Agriculture Commissioner

Yes, ladies and gentlemen – this is a quote from an elected official.  At one point in our history  it would have been remarkable and noteworthy to have such a concoction of lies, slander, fear-mongering and utter stupidity put together all in one paragraph.  However, thanks to the Reality TV Show Joke of a President, such nonsense barely gets a mention.  But for all of you out there protesting, keep in mind what your elected GOP officials think of you.

Cornyn Giving New Meaning to the Term Toadie

Sen. John Cornyn’s utter spinelessness in the face of another Trumpian stunt was on full display today.  Cornyn defended the use of tear gas and truncheons to clear the peaceful protesters in front of the White House yesterday so that Donald “Bunker Boy” Trump could have his photo op with “a Bible” in front of a church whose priest and bishop later denounced his actions.

Claiming that it was “for security purposes” Cornyn argued that BBT had the right to order tear gassing and forcible removal of protesters.  Cornyn claims that the protesters were asked to clear “but refused to do so.”   Notably, the 7 pm curfew was to kick in just a few minutes after Bunker Boy unleashed his shock troops on American citizens exercising their right to peaceably assemble.  But Trump is too important to wait a couple of minutes.

Cornyn then played the ultimate Trump card – going after the press.  According to Cornyn, the media is “never going to find any good or any positive development in anything.”  Well  Sen. Cornyn (Scumbag – TX), Red is looking hard to find the positive in using violent methods against peaceful protesters so that Bunker Boy can try to shed his cowardly image by walking across the street under an absurd amount of security to waive “a Bible” in front of the cameras.  A Bible that he probably could not quote a single word from and surely has never read unless forced to.

It is painfully obvious that Bunker Boy prefers groveling bootlicks and Cornyn is willing to lick long and hard.  How is the taste of leather John?   Please vote this embarrassment out of office in November.
