What kind of low-rent, retro, Roger Stone ratfucking is this? Did the Arizona GOP really send a couple of idiots over to the campaign office of a Democratic House candidate with $39.68 worth of change and a claim to represent the Northern Arizona University Communist party? Do these dipshits just watch James O'Keefe videos all day and think, "Yeah, that guy gets it?" Were they wearing matching Che T-shirts and clutching copies of Mao's Little Red Book on this caper? It's Friday, so we're going with YES TO ALL, ALLEGEDLY.

Last week, two Republican nitwits walked into the campaign office of Democratic Congressman Tom O'Halleran with a jar of coins to donate to his reelection campaign. They called themselves Jose Rosales and Ahmahd Sadia -- get it, a Messican and a Mooozlim! Subtle.


Ben Jacobs from The Guardian reports,

The pair initially walked in to sign up to volunteer but had brought along a jar full of money that they wished to donate. After being directed to a finance staffer, they were told to fill out paperwork. In doing so, they identified themselves as members of the Northern Arizona University Communist party. They made clear they were not an official group but were holding meetings. But they also insisted upon a receipt.

When told they get only an emailed receipt, Rosales immediately scratched out one email and wrote another. The entire process raised eyebrows among O'Halleran's staff.

No kidding it raised eyebrows! Roger Stone pulled this shit in 1972, when he pseudonymously donated to Nixon challenger Pete McCloskey in the name of the Young Socialist Alliance, and then sent the receipt to the media to prove that McCloskey was a secret commie. But this isn't 1972, and the O'Halleran finance staff clocked these two bozos from the jump.

Here's a video of Lindsey Coleman, O'Halleran's finance director, marching in to the Arizona GOP office to return the money immediately.

Nice of the front desk dude to narc out his pal Oscar, who emerged from a door to reclaim his cash before disappearing like Homer Simpson into a bush. Good luck with the FEC, Oscar! Maybe you and "Ahmahd" should have looked a little closer at those campaign finance regulations, since it's illegal to donate to a campaign under a false name. But don't worry, because you guys have a big future in television. Safe bet you're about to star in a whole bunch of O'Halleran campaign ads!

Slow fuckin' clap, geniuses.

We know a few things about Donald Trump for 100% certain.

One is that his brain is broken. There are a million examples, but here's one, from this afternoon:

MICHAEL. FLYNN. PLEADED. GUILTY. TO. LYING. TO. THE. FBI!

A judge is not "looking into that situation," you fucking moron!

OK let us not get distracted, as that is not the point of this post.

Another thing we know about Donald Trump is that he sniffs A LOT. During all the debates, he sniffed. During lots of his Hitler rally speeches, he sniffs. When he's on foreign soil, he sniffs. When he's hunkered athwart his golden toilet Makin' Twitters, we assume he sniffs.

My idiot brother used to get that face during rants

Kentucky's Extra-Crispy wingnut governor Matt Bevin sure knows how to pick a fight. A few years back, during his failed bid to primary Mitch "Top Turtle" McConnell, Bevin explained how "chicken boxing" was a benign pastime that even the founding fathers enjoyed, and also a great big states' rights issue. Once in office, he was, predictably, a reliable supporter of stupid ideas, like spending a lot of money to ramp up a "work requirements" bureaucracy to make sure fewer people received Medicaid, thus spending more but claiming he'd "saved" money. He also claimed this year that striking teachers probably caused an invisible wave of child rape and death, because kids weren't in school. No, of course there wasn't any such result, but hey, it's OK, Bevin eventually not-pologized.

Bevin's other specialty is trying to drum up a good culture-war panic, like that time in 2016 when he predicted there'd be bloodshed if Hillary Clinton were elected, because sane governors predict civil war all the time. That desire to warn of impending calamity seems to be behind Bevin's latest idiocy, a Twitter rant yesterday in response to national investigative nonprofit ProPublica's decision to partner with the Louisville Courier-Journal for coverage of state government. So it only makes sense Bevin would lose his shit over the fact that one of the many sources of funding for ProPublica is George Soros's Open Society Foundation. How dare those monsters bring their radical leftist "reporting" to the Commonwealth of Kentucky!
