The Cornfield Resistance on Republican double standards

Reflections on the debased base.

The Capitol Hill creep list

The dipshits are everywhere. But women have known this forever.

The answer isn’t for men to be like Mike Pence

Vice President Mike Pence once had told The Hill, a political newspaper and website, that he never dines with women alone, nor does he attend functions without his wife if alcohol is being served.

Because that either implies that women can’t control themselves around Mike Pence (highly unlikely) or Mike Pence can’t control himself around women (sounds right. Have you seen the guy’s face?).

The answer is for men to stop being dicks (and to stop thinking with theirs).

While the Alabama GOP debates the merit of pedophilia

We should really take a look at the Democratic opponent of Republican child molester Roy Jones. His name is Doug Jones, and he did this:

In 1997, then-President Bill Clinton named Jones as the United States attorney for the Northern District of Alabama in Birmingham. Five years later in 2002, Jones served as the lead prosecutor in the lawsuit against two of the four Ku Klux Klan members responsible for the 16th Street Baptist Church bombing in September 1963. This act of racial violence killed four African-American girls during church services. The Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. had called it “one of the most vicious and tragic crimes ever perpetrated against humanity.” 
Jones was also involved in the prosecution of Eric Rudolph, whose 1998 attack on a Birmingham abortion clinic killed an off-duty police officer. Rudolph was sentenced in 2005, after Jones left office.
Referencing his time going after the KKK, Jones wrote a Huffington Post op-ed in September, saying that he does not want to let history repeat itself.
“Sadly, the pattern of violence as a response to hope has reasserted itself,” he wrote. “We saw it in the Charleston church massacre in 2015. We saw it on display in Charlottesville this past August. We’ve seen it in the attacks on mosques and synagogues, and against the LGBT community. We see it in the hostility toward the Latino community. We cannot sweep this violence under the rug. We must address the forces that lead to it and prosecute those who perpetrate such acts,” Jones wrote.
Jones won the Democratic primary in August, defeating seven other candidates and taking home 63.6% of the vote.
Here’s what I can’t wrap my mind around. The people of Alabama have a choice: They can pick a pedophile who molests 14-year-old girls, or they can pick a man who prosecuted the racists who murdered four little girls in a bombing of a Birmingham church during the height of the civil-rights movement.
And the political experts believe the child molester will win.
To quote the immortal Neil Young:
Alabama. You’ve got the rest of the Union to help you along. What’s going wrong?

Republicans debate whether they should support a pedophile

Let’s not “both sides” this. Democrats condemned Anthony Weiner when he was caught sexting a minor, and he’s in jail today. Roy Moore molested a 14-year-old girl when he was in his 30s, and deviates in Alabama are more than willing to put him in the U.S. Senate.

And the Jesus, Mary and Joseph comparison is way beyond fucked up.

Some encouraging political news

In Virginia:

Democrat Ralph Northam was projected to win Virginia’s race for governor Tuesday over Republican Ed Gillespie, as Democrats appeared headed for a big night across the board in races for lieutenant governor, attorney general and several key seats in the House of Delegates, based on exit polls and early returns.

Virginia’s election has been closely watched nationwide as a test of President Donald Trump’s status and impact on the tenor of politics in every state.

Babyman responded just the way you thought he would:

From Korea, Trump wasted no time lashing out at Gillespie. “Ed Gillespie worked hard but did not embrace me or what I stand for” the president tweeted before the final tally was in.

Also in Virginia:

Democrat Danica Roem ousted longtime incumbent Del. Robert G. Marshall (R) Tuesday, becoming the first openly transgender elected official in Virginia — and one of very few in the nation.

The race between Roem, 33, and Marshall, 73, focused on traffic and other local issues in Prince William County but also exposed the nation’s fault lines over gender identity. It pitted a local journalist who began her physical gender transition four years ago against an outspoken social conservative who has referred to himself as Virginia’s “chief homophobe” earlier this year introduced a “bathroom bill” that died in committee.

And in New Jersey:

New Jersey became the seventh state in the country where Democrats now control the legislative and executive branches with the election on Tuesday of Philip D. Murphy, a former Wall Street banker with no experience in office, as its 56th governor, according to The Associated Press.

The victory by Mr. Murphy, who transformed himself from a Goldman Sachs executive into a progressive Democrat to match the direction of an anxious political party, gives Democrats a badly needed lift and a governor who has vowed to make his state a bulwark against the policies of President Trump.

Mr. Murphy’s ascendancy also brings an emphatic end to the tumultuous eight-year reign of Gov. Chris Christie, a Republican who was once considered a viable contender for the White House but who leaves office as one of the country’s least popular governors.

Contrary to what the kryptic kloset klansman says, everyone of the Republicans who tan (and lost badly) embraced his racist, xenophobic, homophobic playbook. The decent people in the two states who said no to the fascists delivered this message to the pussygrabber:

That, my friends, is a woman flipping the bird at babyman’s motorcade last week in Virginia. But her Quisling bosses found out she did this and fired her on her day off. I’m not going to name her, but her company is a government contracting firm called Akima. No one should every use its services again, since they obviously support the kraven krimson kretin.
