Re: “As Approval Ratings Plunge, McSally Snaps at CNN Reporter

I don't know what happened to America that so many today ignore the lessons our founding fathers fought for, as did the fathers, brothers and sons American families sent to Europe to fight fascism during WWII. Forgot that our American ideals and freedom depend on the defense of democracy - defense by a free press and those that will show the courage to stand up to a corrupt and autocratic president.

I really don't know why her staff chose to post this. It does not make her look very good here.

Then again, it's not like she actually tries to represent Arizonans.

Hopefully Mark will win and prevent the republican lemming from stealing your vote, SS and Medicare while giving the rich even more tax breaks they don't need while further trying to reduce workers pay. And yes, Mark will also be a big D-MAFB supporter.

McSally's remark to a reporter who is now a liberal hack says more about her than the reporter: she's as ugly on the inside as she is on the outside.

Re: “As Approval Ratings Plunge, McSally Snaps at CNN Reporter

I like to prepare for the worst and hope for the best, but unless the Democratic Party gets their collective sh@t together, I fear four more years of a Trump administration, which brings me to why you should really check out Fox programing to see who's coming on and doing video interviews for potential positions in the current and future administration to include Martha, who may have her gun sights on a DHS or DoD position.

Regardless of what they say, Fox only has an audience of one that really matters and the parade of potential sycophants is never ending.

Meanwhile, China, Russia, North Korea and multiple non-state-sponsored terrorist organizations continue to plan our social, economic and military demise, as U.S. military personnel, equipment and funding is diverted to the Southern border propaganda art installation and vanity piece know as "The Wall" -- not to be confused with the Pink Floyd work of the same name, which was a cautionary musical story of what happens when a little boy is traumatized at a young age, finds a voice through popular music and attempts to foist a fascist vision on the masses while building a mental wall around his vulnerabilities and human emotions ...oh wait.

Re: “The Skinny

Hope her "you're a liberal hack" comment to a national journalist in the halls of the Capitol helps her demise.

Re: “As Approval Ratings Plunge, McSally Snaps at CNN Reporter

She's not a fighter pilot., as she claimed. She flew an A-10 Thunderbolt II, which is an attack aircraft - a light bomber. Martha McSally is a political coward and an empty flight suit. She will lose to Mark Kelly. Good riddance to her. She will probably find a comfy sinecure in the military-industrial complex.

Re: “Claytoon of the Day: To Solemnly Lickspittle

I remember the Clinton impeachment. He was being tried for the crime of lying about accepting the offer of a blowjob on his coffee break. An offer that was made 5 years after the investigation was started, and only discovered because the Starr Investigation had Tripp illegally spy and tape people in the White House. She went to prison for it. Fair and impartial? Please. trump and inner circle have committed actual crimes, plenty of them, bribery and extortion etc. Over a dozen witnesses and hundreds of pages of documents prove it beyond question. The only question left, will republicans be impartial enough to face the facts? Or will their fear of retribution from this administration cow them into obedience.

Anyone who supports, let alone adopts the handle of tRump 2020, openly shows the idiot that they are.

Re: “As Approval Ratings Plunge, McSally Snaps at CNN Reporter

Sorry there Captain Faux, Derschewitz was talking out of both sides of his mouth and seems to have ever shifting rationales, mixing up criminal defense with impeachment. He cited the Federalist Papers but misreads them. When Trump ignores and refuses all legitimate Congressional subpoenas, the only last rememdy is impeachment. In Federalist 65, Hamilton accurately foresaw exactly what would happen and cited, "In many cases it will connect itself with the pre-existing factions and will enlist all their animosities, partialities, influence, and interest on one side or on the other and in such cases there will always be the greatest danger the decision will be regulated more by the comparative strength of parties than by the real demonstrations of innocence or guilt." Bingo, Mr Hamilton. Wrong Dershy.

Re: “The Skinny

"We need close air support to show up," McSally said. "I'm not just sitting here taking incoming and not having any A-10s show up, you know overhead, to help me out."

Sounds like Martha has popped smoke to mark her position, but she's blowing smoke when it comes to representing all the people of Arizona and not just Republicans.

As for the incoming she's experiencing, I suggest she advise the president to stop calling for fire on his own position by continuing to use the office of the presidency to line his pockets, carry out his personal brand of xenophobic race and political warfare, and lastly, to stop being a useful idiot to China and Russia.

When you find yourself in a hole the first step to getting out is to stop digging.

Re: “The Skinny

This piece suggests many questions that I hope the Tucson Weekly addresses in the weeks to come.
At this moment in American history (and American politics), any seat in the US Senate remains critical.
The fact that these two contenders amass so much cash post-Citizens United, tends to raise some pretty nasty red flags. Who are their generous _donors/sponsors_? Corporations, dark money 501's, or "bring-back-the-New-Deal" dems? Not all funding sources are created equal, ideologically speaking--as future favorable legislation _and_ tax-giveaways to those who need them least will likely ensue. Let's remove our Pollyanna-tinged eyewear (or brain-filters). The fact that one candidate runs behind the aegis of the GOP and the other under the Democrat umbrella remains next to meaningless in this day and age; I suspect many candidates target voters who stubbornly cling to and vote based on shallow, anachronistic labels. I have come to believe that a candidate's platform, proposed legislation, and ideas/views matter, that such matters trump party-line appeals.
Sometimes I wonder how many folks don't bother to register, and if registered don't bother to vote based on viewing the binary "choice," and just stay home--expecting the next election cycle. I don't have data on hand, but isn't it something like 40% of folks eligible to vote? Who just say "no" to both sides of the political aisle and self-disenfranchise? With some of the choices "our betters" provide us, why bother? These past 45 years with rare exceptions, I will note that third party candidates have provided better, healthier solutions for our republic. They just weren't able to raise corporate cash to get their message to voters who can make a difference.
One final question: why does the Tucson Weekly, an alternative paper, play the corporate media game and highlight these two candidates and their fund-raising? Surely, there must be more candidates in the running...
Be well.

Re: “Claytoon of the Day: To Solemnly Lickspittle

Captain Arizona has a common malady that affects ALL REPUBLICANS. It's called TRUTH DERANGEMENT SYNDROME. When your so called "SAVIOR" tells 12,000 LIES in less than 4 years in office and you continue to support his agenda then you definitely have TDS. Trump makes it easy for the Republicans (WASPS) to continue their undying admiration for him because he allows them to exercise their racist, homophobic, anti-women agenda with impunity.

"You call names like troll when you can't refute."

This is at least the second time I've read you accusing someone of calling you a name... when they didn't! I'm not sure what industrial grade narcotics you're taking craptin, but you need to lay off. That stuff will eventually kill you.

Re: “As Approval Ratings Plunge, McSally Snaps at CNN Reporter

This is, after all, the candidate who, as a member of the House, held "stealth" town halls with invited guests, refused to respond to letters, always had a full voicemail box that didn't take new calls. She may have been willing to put herself in harm's way as an A-10 pilot, but she sure wanted to duck, dodge and hide as an elected representative. It's time for her to go through that revolving door and sign on with some sleazy defense contractor.
