The FreeRepublic Sunday Talk Show Thread

It was a pretty good Sunday political talk show extravaganza, especially in view of the fact that I was knee deep in politics this past week.

Indeed I attended the Delaware Republican convention in Dewey Beach and in every way possible I am a better person for it.

As an aside, I will be covering my experience this upcoming week, a mostly positive but at times confusing event.

sundaypoli5.1.16facenationcruzMartha Radditz snuck in a kind of sneaky question to Ted Cruz on ABC’s This Week (the show includes the words “With George Stephanopoulos” but he’s nowhere around lately).

Anyway, Martha asked Cruz, who was on every show this morning in desperation to keep his campaign alive, if he ever laughed on the campaign trail.

It was kind of a dumb question but it was snark. Ted Cruz is not known far and wide for his sparkling humor. Cruz handled it well, fluffing it up by assuring the world that he did, indeed, laugh.

On Face the Nation, Ted Cruz said something, yes I heard it with my own lying ears, that shocked me.

“Majorities matter,” he said, in a narrative on something or other, I forget what prompted that comment.

This when Cruz is doing everything he can to stop any kind of majority from giving the nomination to Trump.


And let’s not forget that little alliance Cruz formed with Kasich, definitely an action meant to quell the stupid majority, more on this later and how if affected my vote in the Delaware primary.

On Face the Nation we had Lindsay Graham and Lord somebody give that man a valium.
“When Trump goes against Muslims coming to America he risks having the Muslims help them in their country,” as I paraphrase.

First, Graham hates Trump, that’s very obvious.

But that thing about wanting to stop illegal immigration and the entrance into this country of sundaypoli5.1.16thisweektrumpthose who would cause us harm would stop America from helping THEM….why the hell does America have to protect the Muslims?

Somebody show those nut jobs a gun and let them protect their own damn selves.
Fox News Sunday celebrated its twenty years of existence, the first seven of which were hosted by Tony Snow, may he rest in peace.

And I’ve watched this show all of those years and thank God for Fox news.

sundaypoli5.1.16obamacomediaOn Meet the Press we had lots of coverage of the OBama Journalist gooffest. Truth is, President Obama was quite funny with his routine, even poked a bit at Hillary.

Finally, heh. On CNN’s State of the Union we had Jake Tapper asking Ted Cruz what he thought of Caitlyn Jenner and his (I will NEVER call something with a penis a SHE) prance into a Trump Tower female bathroom.

sundaypoli5.1.16caitlynjennercnnIn all of the planet there is no more worthless and silly human being than Bruce Jenner who one day decides to don a smashing Ungaro frock with Jimmy Chu shoes and, boom, become a woman.

And you know the Hollywood gay community is behind such a loser because….well it’s what they do.

In the scheme of things, Bruce Jenner in female form causes little harm but he’s nothing, of no importance….perhaps even an asshole.

Cruz handled it well, explaining, as we all understand that it’s not the true transgender males that are the problem. It’s the pervert who will also don a designer dress, some cool shoes and pretend to be transgender that they may perversely stare at the young girls of their dreams.

Yes it was mostly Cruz cause folks, once I liked Ted Cruz but read on why I now do not.

He’s gasping a last breath but I wish him well. He did very well today as guest on all the Sunday political talk shows, God bless.

Political Cartoon of the Week


My Take

So last Tuesday we voted here in Delaware. All along I was planning to vote for Ted Cruz because I liked him right along and, indeed, I still like him and would be okay if he won.

But for whatever godawful reason he decided to join forces with that awful Kasich, a nothing burger who no more deserves this alleged third place spot than my dog. If anything, Rubio, Carson or even Fiorina should be ahead of that arrogant asshole Kasich.

When I went into that voting booth I almost pushed that button for Cruz. But aligning with Kasich? Possibly one of the dumbest thing a politico has ever done.

I pulled the lever for Trump.

The Indiana contest is coming up and Ted….once you were strong. But now you look pathetic, lining up with a loser burger and I’m not convinced that announcing a VP nominee so soon was such a good idea. For sure calling that basketball net a “basketball ring” was kind of dumb.

Ted Cruz gave it his all this Sunday and on some level I wish him well.

By next week this time I suspect Cruz will be outta there and dear Lord make that Kasich guy get outta my face.

I do not respond to comments on my posts. I certainly have no problem with such commentary and, indeed, encourage it. But I’ve written my piece and I don’t want to argue it further.

Please feel free to email me at if you want to send me a special comment or have any ideas or information you want to share.

NEXT : I am going to be posting of my experience at the Delaware state Republican convention in Dewey beach, to include a couple of stellar keynote speeches, some of the backroom bickering, even a critique of the most horrible meal I ever ate.
