Peter Shumlin, Governor of Vermont and head of the Democratic Governors’ Association, with a Ryan Gosling cardboard cutout
i’m not even going to question this
BRILLIANT on so many levels… Especially if you host a fundraiser - $5 to have your photo taken with “Gosling”… Send it to all the likely female voters.
What? I’m just saying… that’s a money maker of an idea if ever I saw one.

…and throws in the random “dog in the yard” just to mix it up…

I STILL remember the drive back from Columbus to Houston in 2004. God, that was an ache. (Maybe for a lot of reasons, but the loss just added to all of that.)

More. More of this, please.
always sometimes be a blow hard, but, he has consistently been leading a Republican charge against the Tea Party. There are Republicans that do not like how far their party is going to the right and realizes that it’s killing their party. They also don’t like how the party of “no” is refusing to get anything done because the American people are starting to pay attention and starting to blame one specific group for this.
I have to give him props for being vocal about it and trying to change the dynamic of the party how he can. I don’t like Republicans, generally speaking because I associate them too much with people like Cruz and not enough with people like Goldwater. I miss Republicans like Goldwater. I do. It’s gotten so bad I’m even starting to miss Republicans like Reagan.
And don’t get me started on Cruz…. or my state. I’ll apologize as much as I can for him, while explaining that the Texas Democratic Party did NOTHING to help Paul Sadler gain momentum and get money to forge the kind of campaign that could have easily been successful, considering the alternative. There were Republicans in Texas that were scared of Cruz and didn’t want to vote for him and were at least willing to listen to and give money to Sadler. (You might also want to glare at the DSCC on that one. Cruz is not worth the amount of possible donations he brings in. He’s scary. End of story.)

Unfortunately these Republican Congressmen think that the laws they make that apply to their constituents do not apply to their families. A Congressman can easily afford to have his or her daughter fly out of the country to take care of an unplanned pregnancy, and daughters of privilege, just like sons of privilege, have easier access to high quality health care and education, while also being given golden tickets once they do graduate to opportunities that their classmates can only dream of wistfully.
Don’t be fooled - the GOP has no reason to help either the middle class or lower class woman, because they do NOT understand her struggle and to think that their daughters would face that same kind of life or even seriously understand it is the height of ignorance.

Perfect day / evening to watch this movie. If you haven’t seen it, I recommend it highly… and if you haven’t seen it and you’re a politico? What.the.hell.are.you.doing?
If you haven’t seen it and you’re a GIRL politico? I think you need to turn in your badge to the boiler room. Clooney AND Gosling AND Phillip Seymour Hoffman (who is just a DAMN fine actor) AND political intrigue the likes of House of Cards? Yeah… you should be all over that in a heartbeat.

Fellow Texans (that are also Democrats), if you have not heard about Battleground Texas, well… I don’t know what to tell you. BUT, they’re offering free bumper stickers to get the word out.
Tell your friends?

whiferdill replied to your video: The third generation of Bushes are attempting to…
no. no. no. do not want.
Neither do I… Neither do I.
I’m kind of wondering what deal Good Ole’ Governor Goodhair worked out with the Bushes to let him run for Governor again over Prescott. This announcement has only been delayed this long because they’ve been waiting to see which position he would decide to go after. It must also mean that Kay Bailey is probably making a serious run in the primary. Prescott can’t hope to beat both the idiot and the sainted Senator, even with Grandpappy’s image and Uncle and Daddy’s donors. Wondering if the Good Ole Boys will let KBH have it this time around, hoping it will get the women folk to settle down over all that Planned Parenthood hullabaloo, because Kay Bailey wouldn’t sell us out… *rolls eyes*
