Fading Harry Reid says he’ll let ‘Goddess of the Senate’ Elizabeth Warren be Elizabeth Warren

Posted by John Hitchcock on 2014/11/13

House Dems let Nancy Pelosi keep her leadership after they were booted from majority under that leadership. Senate Dems saw how well that worked out and kept Harry Reid on as their leader. Sounds like a good idea.

‘Idiot climate deniers’ invited to question White House’s top scientist at #AskDrH

Posted by John Hitchcock on 2014/11/13

The guy who scare-mongered about the coming ice age in the 70s and thought it was a good idea to sterilize Africans without their consent is calling skeptics “climate deniers” since they aren’t going with the cooked books about the cooked planet. Imagine that.

The Sorcerer’s Apprentice

Posted by John Hitchcock on 2014/11/13

One of the members of Team Kimberlain (most likely) shows up on a Hogewash thread discussing a court date with a serial harasser and member of Team Kimberlin. And what does that (most likely) TK member do on that thread? Threatens to harass the victims of harassment, and declares they’ve been “reported” for “possibly going to show up armed” at a restaurant they will be gathering for camaraderie.
