Was that a Mad-Libs? That headline sure felt like a Mad-Libs.

From the list of names, I'd call it Mad-Conservatives instead.

The last thing that passed for a moderate in the GOP was John McCain or perhaps Mitt Romney and even they are far, far right wing.

Tennessee Sen. Marsha Blackburn and Arkansas Sen. Tom Cotton have taken Hagerty's side at campaign rallies, saying he will stand with Trump. "Bill is pro-life, he is pro-gun, he is pro-family, he is pro-small business and he is pro-conservative values," Blackburn said in a recent video posted on Twitter.

All the things Trump is not.  Strange.

Huh?

I had to stop and have lunch half way through that headline.

McCain was conservative to a fault most of the time; Romney's just a rank opportunist.

A Republican primary in Tennessee between some handpicked Trump racist and a first generation Indian immigrant, medical doctor, who runs a real medical charity.

This is too easy.

But the GOP's primary election on Thursday to replace retiring Sen. Lamar Alexander has turned into a bitter, competitive contest between Hagerty and a conservative challenger, Dr. Manny Sethi, over who can be Tennessee's Trump.

"I wanna be Tennessee's Trump!"
"No, I wanna be Tennessee's Trump!"

After Trump is defeated and all the dirt comes out about him:
"Who is Trump? Never heard of him. I never ran for office saying I wanted to be Tennessee's Trump"

When you're extolling someone's pro-life credentials, the next words out of your filthy sewer should not be "he is pro-gun".

I liked things so much better when "race to the bottom" was what we did with toboggans during the long winter months.

Ah the old reliable word salad for the cheap green.  Gotta love the classics, though I think every word is spelled correctly.

The comic writer Roy Blount Jr. regularly claimed Lamar Alexander as a friend. For a long time I cut Alexander some slack because of it. Now, I question whether Roy Blount Jr. is worth all that. Alexander brought disgrace on everything he associated with. What a shameless jackass.

Odd typo.  t isn't anywhere near l, s or the space bar.

No surprise. How much cognitive dissonance does it take to be in a relatively recent immigrant family and be against immigration?

I sure would be proud to vote for either one of these men who are fighting for the privilege to be Donald Trump's biatch.

What rugged Americans these conservatives are.

Fark Marsha Blackburn.

CSB:
I formerly worked for a large healthcare organization. Several of my users were Blackburn supporters who got bent out of shape when I put filters in place to block her emails, and threatened to get me fired for it.

That lasted for a very short time until I showed that we had no less than six malware-laden emails from her official campaign, to multiple users, within a week. Thankfully my Information Security Officer backed me up in front of management.

Malware aside, I would think getting political emails would be in violation of your Acceptable Use policy.  It would be with my employer.

How are you not impressed by "He supported gun control for *middle schools!*" as an attack ad?

If Sethi hadn't run his own "I'm a member of the Trump cult, honest!" ads, Hagerty's ads would almost be enough to make me like him despite the (R).
