The Man Behind the Curtain

In other news, Oversight Committee chairman and avowed witch hunter Jason Chaffetz says there would be more shutdown showdowns and debt ceiling brinkmanship if he's chosen for Speaker of the House. That's undoubtedly music to the ears of the Flying Monkey Caucus.

Meanwhile, the editor of the anti-Planned Parenthood smear videos reportedly admitted he spent nearly a year (11 months) editing the videos. That's a long time to sit on allegations that they're selling fetuses on the black market, isn't it? That seems like something you would release immediately, unless it was all bullshit.

And finally, the Trump campaign is trolling the Rubio campaign and I can't help but laugh.

CNN learned that the Trump campaign sent a "care package" to Rubio's Washington campaign office that contained a 24-bottle case of "Trump Ice Natural Spring Water," with Trump's face on it, two "Make America Great Again" towels and bumper stickers and a note reading, "Since you're always sweating, we thought you could use some water. Enjoy!"

A Trump campaign aide said they added the towels "for him sweating," and described the overall gesture as a lighthearted prank.

    I’d never vote for either of them, but the Trump-Rubio trolling is frickin’ awesome.

      Probably the most grown-up thing anyone in the GOP field has done to date.

    • With just a dash of dickishness.

        Dick Dash would be a good name for a Republican candidate.

          Yes, with Dick Dash you can buy a candidate which normally sells for $50,000, now for just $8.29!!! Political auctions have never been sleazier!
