Posted by: ST on September 4, 2014 at 6:23 pm » 3 Comments

In an update to this post, the disgraceful, shameless Democratic National Committee Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz, known for her insane, over-the-top, way beyond the bounds of basic civility, has issued a non-apology “apology” of sorts for her vile remarks likening Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker (R) to a physically abusive husband: Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman […]

Just when you think the left hadn’t stooped low enough this election year.

LOL: CBC upset DCCC supports overturn of #FLGOP redistricting, implies racism

I’ll be chuckling over this one for a while: Black Democrats in Congress are sharply criticizing their party’s leadership for supporting efforts to overturn the GOP-drawn congressional map in Florida and cut into Republicans’ House majority. Last week, Congressional Black Caucus Chairwoman Marcia Fudge (D-Ohio) sent a sharply worded letter to Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee Chairman […]

 

#RedMeatThursday: Poll shows Gov. Sandoval could beat Senator Reid
