    Morning all. Thanks for opening up the shop, AMK. It’s freaking snowing here! Snowing on April 9! I can understand cold, wind and rain in April, but snow makes me outraged. Hope everyone else is having a nice, warm, sunny Spring like day.

        It’s all about expectations, AMK. If it’s supposed to be hot where you are, then it’s not a surprise. If it’s NOT supposed to snow this late in the year, then it is a surprise and a not a happy one. In any case, I’m feeling grumpy, but thanks for the perspective.

      We had ours yesterday and the winds were 50 mh and sleet, snow, rain not a good day and it is only 31 so far this morning. I think Spring left us. 😦

      Wow Jackie, you are having snow and yesterday it reached 83 here. Earliest ever recorded for here. It was hot. We would love some of that snow.

      I do love the sunshine and everything is greening, the trees are budding and I think my lilacs will be blooming before May. I do love the spring flowers.

      Hope you have a great day even in the snow.

      Just waking up knowing we still have President Obama in the White House helps me get thru the day.

    Thank God that President Obama is still the President of The United States of America. ⭐🏆 ⭐🏆 ⭐🏆

      He’s absolutely right, RanMan. The GOPers who express outrage at Trump/Cruz are like parents who use foul language all the time and then wonder why the kids do, too.

    • April 9, 2016 at 9:29 am

      When Trump said women should be punish for having an abortion, you better believe there are other pro life Republicans who feel that way. If there are any Democrats out there who can’t get excited about this election, then get scare, get mad, get what ever you have to get, and come out to vote to keep Trump or Cruz or any Republican from getting in that White House 2016.

    The White House is such a cool place with so much green space and fountains that all sorts of wildlife can pop up to make life interesting. That male and female duck must have thought they found the perfect place for canoodling. And then along comes this tall and glorious President.

      Found this on Meta’s twitter timeline — a must view for her thoughts and incredible wide-ranging RT’s.

      Had no idea that @JeffreySachs, a professor at PBO’s alma mater Columbia, could stab the most illustrious alum in the back this way. Too much ego is my guess. 😦

    So, Dennis Hastert molests 4 children, and it’s tough to give him 6 MONTHS…but, a Black man steals CANDY and is facing 20 YEARS?

    PHUCK.OUTTA.HERE.

    • 68 jackiegrumbacher

      And Hastert said that the “humiliation” of being exposed was punishment enough! In what privileged universe is this??? If he’s guilty, he needs to be locked up. End of story.

        They were all set to throw Michael Jackson in prison, no one were talking of him getting six months and MJ said he hadn’t done anything.

      Sw, I hope this poll is close to accurate. If HRC wins big in New York, there is ZERO chance of a Bernie win, no matter how much strutting, fussing and bullying he and his followers do.

      • April 9, 2016 at 9:47 am

        I’m hoping for the same, JackieG. For every “win” Bernie has gotten of late, it is like helium to his ego…it’s been inflated to the point that he’s become ultra sensitive to anything that can even remotely be considered criticism. A significant loss will hopefully deflate some of that ego.

    Superdelegates have been hearing from Sanders supporters for months — and it’s not always pleasant. Akilah Ross Ensley is with the Young Democrats of America, and she’s a superdelegate, who plans to support Clinton. She has to check her professional Facebook page several times a day to deal with all the messages and posts.

    “You should be ashamed of yourself,” Ensley reads from a recent Facebook message she received. “Maybe you will do some soul searching and have some integrity and think about the decisions you’re making and its implications.”

    Ensley said she’s been called names, and there have been expletives.

    —–

    When Clinton-backing super delegate Joyce Elliott heard she was on, what at the time was called the Superdelegate Hit List, she was taken aback.

    “Some of them will tell me, you know, how awful Hillary is, therefore, I should support Bernie, and then tell me how great Bernie is,” said Elliott, who has known the Clintons since the 1970s. “And that’s the kind of thing I think that is not helpful.”

    —–

    For Ken Martin, the chairman of the Minnesota Democratic Party, the flow of messages is constant, 20 a day, he said.

    “Someone received my cell phone number, and they posted that, and so I’m getting calls on my personal cell phone from people all over the country,” Martin said.

      This is nothing short of bullying and should disqualify Bernie. You DO NOT harass delegates, super or otherwise, into voting for you. And posting cell phone numbers is a typical tactic for creating fear that should not and must not be tolerated in the Democratic Party.

    • April 9, 2016 at 9:58 am

      This is cyber bullying which is illegal…the Sanders campaign must be held accountable for this

      Seems to me that these tactics left unchecked tells you a lot about the tolerance level involving questionable tactics that could be used in the WH by staff if BS got elected. A glimpse of what could be.

    Indiana hasn’t cast its ballots for president yet, but Donald Trump is already losing.

    Republican Party insiders in the state will select 27 delegates to the national convention on Saturday, and Trump is assured to be nearly shut out of support, according to interviews with a dozen party leaders and officials involved in the delegate selection process. Anti-Trump sentiment runs hot among GOP leadership in Indiana, and it’s driving a virulent rejection of the mogul among likely delegates.

    ///

    Indiana GOP insiders are working to engineer slates of delegates — three from each of nine congressional districts — that will turn their backs on Trump at a contested convention in July. Another 27 will be elected at a state committee meeting next week.

    Indiana’s delegates will be bound to the results of the state’s May 3 primary on the first vote in Cleveland, and Trump is expected to be competitive in that contest. (There is no current public polling of the state, but several GOP leaders suggested he’d be competitive in at least a couple of the state’s nine Congressional districts.) But if Trump fails to clinch the nomination, they’ll be free to vote their conscience — and that means a rapid rejection of Trump. The state’s Republican national committeeman, John Hammond, has vocally called to reject Trump as well.

      If Indiana Republicans are turning to Cruz instead, they are going from bad to worse.

      • April 9, 2016 at 10:03 am

        I just can’t believe that this is the best the Republican party can do, I guess when the tea party took over and the base became crazy right wing nuts they chase any decent Republicans under ground.

        That may be the reason Speaker Paul Ryan is putting out a lofty campaign type ad complete with patriotic music and Presidential air.

      *Indiana hasn’t cast its ballots for president yet, but Donald Trump is already losing*

      ^^^ Reminds me of an engineer I worked with once, who got a letter from Human Resources saying he “didn’t get the job” … that he never applied for. We laughed and laughed. Trump’s not funny at all, of course.

      Make it stop.

    GM TODville.

    Judging by the weather reports from across TODville, sounds like a good day to stay inside (snow! 36C!) and contemplate how to ensure that when Dems vote (whether primary or Nov election), they don’t just mark an X for President, but also do a little bit of homework so they know who they want for state/local offices too.

    Continuing the Berniebot and Wisconsin voters bashing:

    (Don’t recommend the article itself, which is truly grossly bigoted, from a RWNJ site, but just Bernie bot behavior in Wisconsin.)
