RIP Virginia Campbell, actress who died on her birthday at 102. Campbell acted with Fay Wray, Harpo Marx and more, and later became a marionette artist.
In a move that can only be considered appalling, the Human Rights Campaign is endorsing Sen. Mark Kirk, a Republican, over challenger Rep.Tammy Duckworth, a Democrat.
Kirk may be not-so-terrible as compared to the rest of his party, but surely HRC knows that any Republicans with a seat denies a Democrat and empowers Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell to thwart any progressive movement on any issues, including gay issues, and rewards him for his decision to stonewall President Obama's Supreme Court nominee, Merrick Garland.
It boggles the mind.
I remember being enraged with HRC for years when they endorsed Joe Lieberman.
Hillary Clinton's path to becoming the first female presidential nominee of one of the two major political parties just got clearer: She dominated in North Carolina, Florida and, somewhat surprisingly, in Ohio.
She won Illinois, which was not called by CNN until about 12:15 a.m.
As of this writing, she's trailing slightly in Missouri and leading slightly in Illinois.
Looking at which votes have yet to be counted, it's possible her position could switch in both states; either way, by winning big in the big states and by keeping it close in the rest, she will extend her delegate lead tonight—big-time.
She won in Missouri by approximately .2%. That's POINT TWO. Something like 1,531 votes.
She was classy in her speech toward Bernie Sanders, who had a really bad night. Sanders apparently didn't congratulate Hillary in his speech. WTF?
I can only surmise that in Michigan, lots of cross-over voters who figured she had it in the bag voted as Republicans, and the surprise loss there lit a fire under her supporters in Ohio. Still, her dominance in the historically important swing state of Ohio is a shocker.
Bye, bye, Little Marco.
Marco Rubio, the #1 Republican the Hillary Clinton campaign feared, never gelled with the people. Tonight, after a dismal finish in his home state, the senator called it quits, leaving the race between just Donald Trump (who won tonight's states save for Ohio), Sen. Ted Cruz (who seems to be on the verge of taking Missouri) and Gov. John Kasich (who provided a speed bump for Trump by taking the state he's currently running into the ground, Ohio).
In his speech tonight, Sen. Cruz grotesquely noted that Hillary Clinton tosses and turns “in her jail cell” over the threat she feels from, of all people, Carly Fiorina. (Why are they even compared in the same breath? They have exactly one thing in common—gender.)
Trump is going to have a hard time getting to the nomination in a clean way having been denied Ohio. Perhaps a contested convention is a reality for the Republicans.
If he wins the nomination, Trump's real pivot won't be from extremism to the center but from racism to misogyny.— Jeet Heer (@HeerJeet) March 13, 2016
Will the establishment suck it up and get behind Trump, who's earned the nomination in spirit if not in the delegate count, or will it deny him, knowing they'd be alienating his voters and potentially handing the White House to the Democrats?
wow. wow. @Redistrict notes Trump is losing 2 IL delegates bc his voters skipped voting for his delegate candidates named Sadiq & Fakroddin.— Taniel (@Taniel) March 16, 2016
