Liberal goo-goo Mike McCabe sees dead people

Imagine the surprise here at the Policy Werkes to learn that the Republican Party is “at death’s door.” That is the clichéd term used by self-appointed, good-government goo goo Mike McCabe to say that it’s all over for the forces of conservatism.

Here’s your nuance, you ‘despicable right-wing crazies’

The next president of the United States will take the oath of office with less than half the support of the nation’s deeply divided voters. Bernie Sanders will run as an independent to the political left of Hillary Clinton. Donald Trump will do the same to the right of the Republican party’s nominee. I hope that nominee is Paul Ryan.

Posted: No terrorism on these premises

Got to think the San Bernardino Health Department posted the usual government signage at every entrance. The ones that read: “No Firearms Allowed On These Premises.”
