  1. Hillary won’t run, therefore Craig Crawford will have lost any reason to live and will kill himself but few will take notice.

  2. tempebev

    Have to think about it but first of all, I love Brian’s post.

      My prediction is that the right will move further to the right fringe. And that the press will love it. Crazies get better ratings than the sane.

      Channel surfing tonight someone on Hardball, hosted by Michael Steele, said Steve Scalise was really a good guy and taken out of context. Sheesh

  3. Was his vote against MLK day taken out of context too?

    My prediction is the sun will come up in the morning and will go down in the evening. Climate change, the pipeline, Obamacare, and the regular crap that are subjects of divisiveness, will continue to cause heartache for many. The earth will still rotate on its axis and we will survive another year with nothing being accomplished by the Congress.

    My hope is we will gain new bloggers to this wonderful site. However, the regulars are top-notch and will continue to bitch, question and advise for the good of mankind.

    Click on the pics to know more about the person, Times did an outstanding job on this.

  6. He is said to be considering it, I’d like to see him run

    • dnd

      I too would like to see him run. It would be an interesting contrast to see serious people on the left and the clown car on the right.

  7. anon paranoid

    May you all have a very, very Happy New Year. AP

  8. tempebev

    Happy New Year to everyone at BC. My wish for you is peace, health and happiness in the new year.

  9. Happy New Year everyone, I hope you all have a happy, healthy, & productive 2015!

  10. Almost forgot re the black eyed peas!

    Happy New Year to all. I think 2015 is going to be way better. For one thing, it starts with a Twilight Zone marathon on SyFy.

      They’ve been playing clips of his ’84 speech at the Democratic convention. Geeze I wish this guy would have been president.

  11. Certainly calls into question the man’s qualifications to be president.

  12. He has a blog? You don’t say.

  13. I suspect that group is more loyal to Craig than to Hillary, they need a leader with whom they are in constant contact. Otherwise they would forced to think on their own! Now talk about scary!

  14. I’d be happy if either of them won!

  15. Well, you made me look at Trail Mix. And there’s this charming sentence in Craig’s announcement he’s signed on with JWebb’s exploratory committee.

    “Our free and open discussions go on, even if you post an unkind word about my man Jim.”

    Although we know that supporting our man Barack was enough to get us all kicked off by “Free and Open” Craig Crawford. LOL.

    Oh well. Good luck to them. I supported Webb enthusiastically when he ran for Senate, and canvassed hard for him. If he can get some “bread and butter” issues on the table — and the political press corps is salivating over Jeb Bush this week — more power to him.

    Brunched today with a friend who told me he hoped both Bernie Sanders and Jim Webb would run, to get their issues out there. And then spent the afternoon at the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts in Richmond, which is a treasure.

    Phenomenal Japanese landscapes exhibit there through March 29.

    I met all of you by reading C. C. I wasn’t officially “kicked off” since I never contributed, but I share your feelings about CC. Cocky SOB. I thought Jim Webb had more good sense. The only person who would give Hillary a run is Elizabeth Warren, and that isn’t going to happen. Oh Boner – we so enjoyed looking at your orange face. Whatever will the tanning booths in DC do if you’re outed from being speaker.

    Life goes on to the beat of the marching drum. Dum-de-dum dum.

  17. bev I feel very close to you right now 🙂

  18. tempebev

    Brian – gee, I don’t know what to say. :0

  19. tempebev

    Jeb Bush seems to be doing all the “correct” things in preparation to be the Republican candidate in 2016.

    • dnd

      I think Jebby figures that the fringe clown car right give him an opportunity with mainstream Republicans, and maybe some Democrats. Or at least that’s what some of the big-money contributors are telling him. I think they are wrong as 1) the teabaggers are the primary voters and 2) his record will show that he’s too for right for most Democrats.

      The press certainly wants to see it as it sets up another Bush/Clinton fight and it calls into question what will happen with the U.S/Cuba efforts Obama put into place.

  20. Fag bashing is nothing new to the Bush brothers.

  21. Yeah. Ridiculously lenient sentence. If the judge wanted to put our two-tier system of justice on display, he succeeded. Surprised me, because he seemed like quite a competent judge until the sentencing phase.

  22. Hi y’all. Wow. Who would have predicted the last few days in Paris? It will be interesting to follow how the French deal with the aftermath. I hope they have a better political class, particularly the government’s opponents, than we do.

  23. The french are good at a great many thinks, politics is not one of them.

  24. tempebev

    Just waiting for next Tuesday when our illustrious leaders go back to work?

    You all should get a laugh out of this: One of the idiot newly elected to the AZ house has introduced a bill to have Arizona join Daylight Savings time. At the same time, several states are debating whether to drop DST. AZ has not made progress on getting rid of their dummies.

  25. tempebev

    I hope not since I drink city water (purified of course). Honest to God, I don’t have a clue why there are so many nutty people involved in politics here. Many are Mormon Republicans. Jan Brewer was kissed goodbye, her legacy being her picture of finger pointing at Obama. We’ll see how our new gov, Doug Ducey, founder of Cold Stone Creamery works out. I’m not holding my breath. And we still have our angry old man, McCain, to speak volumes about anything.

    Ya gotta love the weather though 🙂

  26. Well glad to know you filter your water, I was thinking of sending you a Brita pitcher.

  27. tempebev

    Thanks, Brian – You’re very thoughtful.

  28. tempebev

    The idiot new rep withdrew the bill that would put AZ on DST. Seems there was a great deal of opposition. What a dummy.

  29. tempebev

    Looks like Peyton may be done with football. D – how will Denver survive? Oh yeah, they have mari-wah-na.

    • dnd

      So now the cable chattering class is taking the New York Post’s lead and questioning Obama not being at the rally in Paris yesterday. Really? Really? They’re revealing themselves not to be political observers but simply catty gossips.

    • dnd

      Bev,
      Not clear about Manning. But coach John Fox may be out. Other coaching staff are being recruited by other teams. What’s clear is that the Broncos will be a different team next year. Not the players, but everybody else.

      At least we don’t have Chris Christie as a fan 😉

      Four weeks until pitchers and catchers report. I can’t wait for baseball season to start.

  30. I’m not sure 33 qualifies one for being “cradle bound” so to speak.

  31. tempebev

    Anyone heard about this?

    Colorado church halts woman’s funeral after photos show she was gay.
    A Colorado church halted a woman’s funeral mid-service on Saturday because a video of photos from her life showed she was married to another woman.

  32. yes Bev, I’ve seen it on several news sites

    Supreme Court to Decide Whether Same-Sex Couples Nationwide Can Marry
    The Supreme Court on Friday agreed to decide whether all 50 states must allow gay and lesbian couples to marry. The court’s announcement made it likely that it would resolve one of the great civil rights questions of the age before its current term ends in June.
    The justices ducked the issue in October, refusing to hear appeals from rulings allowing same-sex marriage in five states. That surprise action delivered a tacit victory for gay rights, immediately expanding the number of states with same-sex marriage to 24 from 19, along with the District of Columbia.
    Largely as a consequence of the Supreme Court’s failure to act in October, the number of states allowing same-sex marriage has since grown to 36, and more than 70 percent of Americans live in places where gay couples can marry.

  34. I don’t know whether to be thrilled or nervous!

  35. I would bet a nice bottle of red wine that the Supremes affirm gay marriage.

  36. I’ll happily buy several rounds of drinks for all if the Court does the right thing!

  37. And we can all pop some champagne when that happens.

  38. Make mine a Manhattan. And then — cherchez le champagne.

  39. well I may pop something but I’m not sure it’s going to be champagne. How could I not have gone there.

  40. Ok, here’s another prediction. The Court is going to make same sex marriage legal in all 50 states, the tea party-nut bag wing of the GOP is going to force the GOP to run on a national campaign in 2016 to amend the constitution to define marriage as being between a male and female. You heard it here first folks.

  41. Ignore my blah, I was having trouble posting and was doing a test.
