This farmer has a message for The Donald.

It was Marshall McLuhan who famously said, "The medium is the message".
Trump is clearly the subject of the message here; and appropriately enough, the medium is bullshit.

Happy Trump Day from Fairfax, VA! Students and teachers ...

are celebrating an unexpected vacation day today. The school board for Fairfax County, in conjunction with the Board of Supervisors, have decided to close schools today due to the primary. In Fairfax, a large majority of polling places are located in schools; and after several violent incidents involving Trump supporters, it was decided to keep students and teachers home today.
Thanks for the paid vacation, Donnie.

Will Jesse Watters do an ambush journo piece on this?

Bill-O the Clown is apparently not much of a parent.

A New York appeals court held last week that Fox News host Bill O’Reilly’s school-age children don’t want to live with him anymore, and should live exclusively with their mother, O’Reilly’s ex-wife Maureen McPhilmy.

The lengthy decision affirms the holding of a Nassau County Supreme Court justice last year that the children, now aged 13 and 17, should live full-time with their mother (the former couple had been splitting residential custody). As we reported at the time, O’Reilly appealed that ruling, thereby delaying its enforcement (and, of course, extending his multi-front battle against McPhilmy and her new family).

The Appellate Division issued its 1,400-word opinion on February 24, a little over a month after attorneys for O’Reilly and McPhilmy—known in court documents as Anonymous 2011-1 and Anonymous 2011-2—presented oral arguments at the division’s courthouse in Brooklyn Heights. According to the opinion, the court’s four justices unanimously ruled in McPhilmy’s favor based upon “the clearly stated preferences of the children”:

The preference of McPhilmy and O’Reilly’s 17-year-old daughter is not particularly difficult to guess: As we noted last year, she told a court-appointed forensic examiner that she witnessed O’Reilly drag her mother down a staircase by the neck. (According to court transcripts obtained by Gawker, she also viewed O’Reilly as a temperamental, absentee parent who was uninterested in developing a relationship with her.) At a January 22 hearing, the children’s court-appointed lawyer, Barbara Kopman, told the appellate court that both the daughter and son strongly preferred living with their mother over their father. (Gawker was able to attend but not record the court session, which was open to the public.)

Idaho legislator wonders if rape or incest can result in a pregnancy.

Anyone care to hazard a guess regarding the party to which he belongs?

BOISE, Idaho (KBOI) — A state lawmaker is in hot water for comments he made about rape and pregnancy rates.

The House State Affairs committee was discussing a bill that would require abortion providers to tell clients where they can get an ultrasound when Rep. Pete Nielsen from Mountain Home stated:

"I'm under the understanding that in many cases of rape, it does not involve any pregnancy because of the trauma of the situation ... that may be true with incest a little bit," Nielsen said.

A spokesman for Planned Parenthood says the comments were "bizarre and troubling" and statements like that are harmful for victims of sexual assaults.

ISIS saves the Warthog.

The finest damned tank killer in the history of warfare will live to fight another day (and hopefully leave a shitload of sub-human savages wondering where in the Hell their 72 virgins disappeared to).

After how many OPs in a 24 hour period does a cry for attention ...

become a cry for help?

Look quickly ... do you see a rabbit or a duck?

Wouldn't a REAL leader fire a staffer who dishonestly ...

made a patently false claim? Or would he just meekly request a resignation?
Ted Cruz is a slimeball, by any standard. His pious bullshit about how the other candidates have somehow been "nasty" would be laughable; if he wasn't still somehow a plausible candidate for the Republican Presidential nomination.

Remind me, who is having their Presidential primary contest today?

If a President should not, during his last year in office, put ...

forth a nominee to fill an empty seat on the Supreme Court; then should the 20 or so Republican senators who are in the last year of their terms of office likewise refrain from casting votes or performing any other legislative duties?
