“The other night I phoned a former Republican member of Congress whom I’d worked with in the 1990s on various pieces of legislation. I consider him a friend. I wanted his take on the Republican candidates because I felt I needed a reality check. Was I becoming excessively crotchety and partisan, or are these people really as weird as they seem? We got right into it:
Me: “So what do you really think of these candidates?”
Him: “You want my unvarnished opinion?”
Me: “Please. That’s why I called.”
Him: “They’re all nuts.”
Me: “Seriously. What do you really think of them?”
Him: “I just told you. They’re bonkers. Bizarre. They’re like a Star Wars bar room.”
Me: “How did it happen? How did your party manage to come up with this collection?”
Him: “We didn’t. They came up with themselves. There’s no party any more. It’s chaos. Anybody can just decide they want to be the Republican nominee, and make a run for it. Carson? Trump? They’re in the lead and they’re both out of their f*cking minds.”
Me: “That’s not reassuring.”
Him: “It’s a disaster. I’m telling you, if either of them is elected, this country is going to hell. The rest of them aren’t much better. I mean, Carly Fiorina? Really? Rubio? Please. Ted Cruz? Oh my god. And the people we thought had it sewn up, who are halfway sane – Bush and Christie – they’re sounding almost as batty as the rest.”
Me: “Who’s to blame for this mess?”
Him: “Roger Ailes, David and Charles Koch, Rupert Murdoch, Rush Limbaugh. I could go on. They’ve poisoned the American mind and destroyed the Republican Party.
Me: “Nice talking with you.”
Him: “Sleep well.” ”
And then….. He’s the guy they say is the Front – Runner of the pack of maniac’s..

Marco Rubio’s Illegal Presidential Campaign
“Marco Rubio’s presidential campaign is breaking the law with impunity and in so doing, is throwing up the specter of political corruption and the appearance of political corruption.”
Which for some strange reason.. begins to make people wonder about the Elections Candidates that came out of North Carolina, this past year… Something referred to: Carolina Rising.. Seems it it was created to do the same thing as the one in Florida.. and the republican’s aren’t being quiet about these foundations.. that money is donated.. excessive amount of money, by whom? oh that, is a secret.. On Carolina Rising.. seems the IRS is checking into these foundations.. and I noted: Carolina Rising the donation page on the web is shut down.. tight.. Wonder why that is.. Me things too much money is flowing from the wrong people.. and its being referred to as Illegal….
