    Dang it – Sam’s playing coy again…

    However, it usually works out well for the both of them….

  • Swansonic

    I also love Bill G’s comment from yesterday’s strip – ‘RINOsaurs.’

    Now we just need to replace the RINOsaurs and Demon-rats with good ‘ol A-Muir-icans in ‘Da Crapper’ and this country would do well….

      Thanks. It just popped into my head and seemed like it should be shared.
      (At least, I think it just popped into my head. It could be I saw it somewhere else and don’t recall to attribute it properly.)

  • Sam’s playing coy? Good stuff.

    And Chris, everything good in the family thing?

  • interventor

    Sam, manspread all.you want, please!

    • RegT

      No, manspread all _Zed_ wants, please!

    I am Grey

    I stand between the Shadows and the Light

    • MasterDiver

      In Valen’s Name!

    • Swansonic

      Exactly right.

  • Fox2!

    Bah. How soon we forget.

    From Wiki:

    “I am Grey. I stand between the candle and the star. We are Grey. We stand between the darkness and the light.”

      From imbd:
      No dictator, no invader, can hold an imprisoned population by force of arms forever. There is no greater power in the universe than the need for freedom. Against that power, governments and tyrants and armies cannot stand.

      No matter how you ‘splain it, Trump will either open the door to Conservatives being elected, things getting cleaned up, straightened out and back on course; or we will fall into the abyss for a while then the outcome will be G’Kar’s quote.

        “All the armies of Europe, Asia and Africa combined, with all the treasure of the earth (our own excepted) in their military chest; with a Buonaparte for a commander, could not by force, take a drink from the Ohio, or make a track on the Blue Ridge, in a trial of a thousand years… At what point then is the approach of danger to be expected? I answer, if it ever reach us, it must spring up amongst us. It cannot come from abroad. If destruction be our lot, we must ourselves be its author and finisher. As a nation of freemen, we must live through all time, or die by suicide.

        “You cannot help the poor by destroying the rich. You cannot strengthen the weak by weakening the strong. You cannot bring about prosperity by discouraging thrift. You cannot lift the wage earner up by pulling the wage payer down. You cannot further the brotherhood of man by inciting class hatred. You cannot build character and courage by taking away people’s initiative and independence. You cannot help people permanently by doing for them, what they could and should do for themselves.”

        – Abraham Lincoln

        This is the choice we face, between two candidates and two philosophies.

        Let us not be complacent.

        Let us choose wisely.

          “…if it ever reach us, it must spring up amongst us.”

          Ironic when attributed to AL…it would be interesting to know who actually penned those words.

          Yes, the choice is between candidates and philosophies, and I submit that the one represents the true convictions of Lincoln and the other represents the sentiment in that profound piece.

          The danger is “amongst us” as we speak. Will we give it cover, and power, and more time to complete its already begun evil mission to induce our suicide, or will we give that power and time to our advocate, to try and avoid the bloodshed that is sure to otherwise come…again?

          • John Greer

            Neither ironic nor prophetic.
            When those words were penned everybody who was paying attention could see the writing on the wall, and because too many were unwilling to compromise their will to the Constitution, on both sides, we needlessly fought the bloodiest war in our history.
            Slavery could have died a bloodless death if only people were willing to respect the property rights of the slave holders. The British Empire simply grandfathered it out of existence.
            Progressives would rather lay waste to the nation than pay, either in money or time, for what they want.
            And don’t think “Liberals” are alone in this sin.
            The Indian Removal (AKA the “Trail of Tears”) was just as “progressive” in its aim as was Emancipation.

          • JTC

            The irony for Abe was the same as if Zero mouthed those words today; an incredible, almost mocking acknowledgement that *they* are the danger amongst us.

            Lincoln for using slavery (which was to the CW as tea was to the RW, and he didn’t give a rat’s ass about it, merely using it as a pretext to wage genocidal war on his *own* people.

            And of course 0 for fomenting racism, classism, and sexism to destroy what remains of the Republic so as to deliver it to his masters.

        And Obama still has progressive and other minions delivering seed and warrior Muslim invaders across the nation as he has also assisted the placement of a 4,000,000 young man invasion force ready to do battle in Europe.
        Look for the war to continue. Both here and abroad. Muslims who are Muslims believe that they are mandated by god to do so. As PM Erdogan of Turkey says: “Islam is Islam’ so that must be what shall continue.

        No stitch in time does not save nine.

  • Bill G

    Donny Boy now has the nomination, unless the delegates choose to vote their conscience and really gum up the works for the GOP ticket.
    On the other hand, Cankles may be irreparably damaged by the investigations and even if not Burnout may run on the Green ticket.
    A preference cascade is surely possible.
    Sam manspreading would surely be wonderful.

    • Redleg

      Read the Republican convention rules. Any delegate that does not vote for the nominee to whom s/he is bound, will be deemed to have immediately resigned and the vote will be recorded for the candidate the delegate was bound to. The only exceptions allowed are for those delegates bound to candidates who have suspended campaigning, quit, etc. Those delegates may vote for any validly nominated candidate, of whom there are only two eligible: Cruz and Trump. (A candidate must have the majority of the delegates from eight states in order to be nominated.) Since Kasich, Rubio, and Carson cannot be nominated, no valid votes can be cast for them. No “White Knight” can be nominated. It’s unclear whether Cruz can be nominated, since he has suspended his campaign, but let’s assume that he can be nominated, else the first ballot will have Trump as the only entrant. Trump will have the majority of the votes, and Trump is the candidate.

      The only way this will not come to pass is if the delegates vote to change the rules before the first ballot. I think it is unlikely that the majority Trump delegates will vote to weaken their candidate’s chances, but it’s possible since Trump did not ensure that his bound delegate positions were filled with Trump supporters.

        Either way, it signals the end of the GOP as they knew it…

  • NotYetInACamp

    I love the cascade that I may have had a hand in. 🙂
    No mansplaining from me now. I keep hearing words that I sent out there coming back by the trainload and more. It’s a great feeling.
