Former Massachusetts Gov. Michael Dukakis, the 1988 Democratic presidential nominee, may be headed back to the political spotlight as he’s considered a likely interim replacement for Sen. John Kerry (D-Mass.). President Obama is set to tap Kerry to succeed Hillary Clinton as secretary of State, according to media reports. This means Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick (D) needs to find someone to fill Kerry’s seat until a special election can be held in the late spring or early summer. Dukakis, who is 79, has remained politically active. He campaigned for Sen.-elect Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) this fall and teaches at Northeastern University.
#6, Reid has already said the cloture requirement, now 60, is going to be reduced, probably to 51. (Remember how the democrats cried and complained when the republicans threatened the ´nuclear option?´ Reid is using the nuclear option. From beginning to end, I predict Jon Cary will be confirmed in one week. Same with Hagel at Defense. Elections have consequences. Just watch the creepy creatures President Zero appoints to the U.S. Supreme Court.
Yes, #15. The chump line is hilarious. For those who don´t know what this is, you can hear it online at WRKO´s website. The chump line comes on around 5:10 PM EST. I especially like that guy who imitates Ted Kennedy.

I just can´t get the two pictures out of my mind. The first is Dukakis wearing a helmet with his head sticking out of a tank and the second is John Francois Kerry crawling out of a hatch door wearing a hazmat suit.
The front men for this regime don´t matter much. This agenda has been carefully crafted for many years. While the prize is totalitarian control of the population, the vectors are:
1-"Redistribution & Fairness" 2-Retribution for "Colonial Exploitation" 3-Alienation of population into hostile sub groups. 4-Stigmatizing and shaming of the military. 5-Promotion of "Gangsta Culture". 6-Disarming the productive sector (Disarming of the new slaves). 7-Environmental extortion operations. 8-Fiscal & Monetary chaos.
I´d worry more if they were bringing in young and charming leading men types.
The dims are dragging out the worst of the worst - I get the giggles every time I think of duki standing on a stool inside a tank peeking out. They are mocking the people that actually love their country.
Where are the young guns of the Democrat Party? Oh, wait. There aren´t any. It´s all of the 60´s rabble rousers. There is no stable of rising stars in their party. There is no one with any new ideas. There isn´t anyone that loves America. The Democrats are the America hating party.
OMG. The worst thing about Lucy.com is that you Ldotter´s are so fast with and all the good comments are already taken by the time I wake up, have my coffee and try to jump in.
With the re-election of Obummer, Obammy, Ozero, Obozo, etc., etc., etc. what is there to say? I feel like I´m in some kind of surrealistic B., C., or D movie. Can it be worse than this so called administration? Can it be more absurd or bizarre than this administration? More incompetent, more frightening? More totally detached from any kind of reality? Think of the bizarre people attempting to run and ruin our country. "The Won" himself and his shrill harridan and scold of a so called wife, Pelosi, Reid, Boxer, Feinstein, Jarrett, the shameful, strange and incompetent Supreme Court appointees Kagan and Sotomayor,the "concussed" Hildabeast/thing, and now, the lying, pompous, smug, arrogant and condescending traitor Jon Francois Carry.
Excuse me, but WTH is wrong with this country that we would vote ourselves into such a self-destructive death spiral with these absurd "leaders"? Is it just me or is this all too depressingly depressing. I´m hoping that this nightmare is just a dream, just a dream.
You guys are fun! This may sound sick, but maybe obama could appoint Senator Tricky Dicky Durbin who is no "spring chicken" as ambassador to Libya. He was sent to Turkey last year to assess their problems with their borders and helped Illinois (the brokest, bankrupt state) sell a prison to the Feds for Gitmo N. These "old, white" democrats are really somethin!
And excuse my vast right wing conspiratorial paranoia, but I´m starting to think that the Newtown, CT shootings are and were arranged as another brick in the wall for "gun control" and of course another "assault weapon" ban.
If not Kerry how about Major Hassan ? He has military experience too you know and obviously friends with high connections. It would send the message of hugs and kisses to the muslim world and show that we love them.
#31 and 34, I agree that I am feeling paranoid about all this...Aurora, Newtown etc. And now I read the press trying to paint the killer´s mother as a ´paranoid prepper´ with 3, count them, 3 guns, who actually took her kids to a shooting range!! As if we should all be outraged by the behavior of this delusional crazy woman who thought there might be civil unrest in the near future and wanted some protection. That is the responsible thing to do, not a wacko thing to do! I see MSM fingerprints all over a lefty talking point of - paranoid wacko gun freak driving the story. So sad.
The current scenario in DC would have to work really hard to come up to the level of a D grade movie. Amusing that the dems, after accusing the RNC of ´old white men´ attacking Susan Rice, is now using ´old white men´ for their new nominations.
I guess that because these retreads are dems, that´s ok. And I also didn´t think it was possible for the Senate stature to decrease any more than it already has with dingy Harry in charge. Where do you go from bottom of the barrel?
Another regurgitation of an old white guy. Can´t see his name without remembering him in the tank. Also, someone mentioned Jon Cary crawling out of that thing with the suit on. I have that picture, also the one someone did of him with the Teletubbies. They are to be made fun of.
#18, a democRAT, is a democRAT, is a democRAT, is a democRAT. Don´t EVER Expect the democRAT party to put The United States od America ahead of their so-called party. If you do, you will live to look Satan in the face nd likely have to learn Chinese.
If Deval Patrick picks Michael Dukakis at age 79, he is picking him to hold down the seat until someone else, maybe even Deval Patrick himself can run for the seat later in the year. That´s if Barack Obama does not pick Patrick for Attorney General if Eric Holder decides to leave or if a vacancy on the Supreme Court does not pop up that Obama can nominate Patrick to fill.
Well, if he doesn´t want it maybe the democrats can have Frank Loutenberg take the seat and NJ can elect another democrat who doesn´t follow the rules. The democrats can do anything they want now, right?
Considering all the brain dead and mumbling Democrats they now have, I suppose they could appoint the exhumed body of Bobby Kennedy - or any one of the drunken, rapist cousins to the position. It really does not matter who they appoint, they are all just little rubber stamps for Reid and Øbama.
With all of the dumbazz antics that were caught in pictures of Odumbo and Lurch only Dukaka comes close to looking utterly stupid. Remember his tank picture. He is still a clown but what do you expect out of the state of Massoftwoshi´tes.
Not only could you "shoot your eye out, kid," you might also go to jail for owning that BB gun in certain states. New Jersey and other jurisdictions make little or no distinction between Daisy´s classic Red Ryder BB gun immortalized in the film "A Christmas Story," and real guns. They must be registered and are subject to the same laws as any firearms. “In all honesty, kids who are charged are looking at mandatory jail time,” said New Jersey attorney William Proetta, adding that under the state’s Graves Act, a conviction could lead to prison time. “The only defense is to
The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services announced this morning that nearly 365,000 Americans had signed up for private health insurance under Obamacare. The vast majority came from 14 states running their own insurance exchanges, while 137,000 came by way of HealthCare.gov, the much-faulted federal Web site that handles enrollment for the remaining states. But amid the rush to enroll as many people as possible by the Dec. 23 deadline, there’s a huge caveat that isn’t getting much public attention: For coverage to take effect on Jan. 1, enrollees must pay their first month’s premium on time. (The deadline varies
If you like your selfie, you can keep your selfie. Period. Unless, of course, you’re Barack Obama, in which case, you better delete it from your smartphone pronto, unless you’d like to spend the next three or four months dining on hot tongue and cold shoulder. You didn’t need a fake interpreter from an old Woody Allen movie to translate Moochelle Obama’s body language. So there they were, Barry, British Prime Minister David Cameron and the hot-wife leader of Denmark, Helle Thorning-Schmidt, hamming it up like it was the 25th anniversary reunion of the Choom Gang. Some Krazy Kids, horsing around, waiting for
The British security firm that failed to protect the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya, from a terrorist attack a year ago that killed Ambassador Christopher Stevens was told by the State Department to avoid the media, the latest example of stonewalling over the attack. In newly uncovered emails received by the public watchdog group Judicial Watch, State was notified that the firm, Blue Mountain Group, was being pressed for answers about the surprise attack. Instead of giving the group the green light to answer the media, State ordered the firm to go into hiding. “Thank you so much for informing us about
Regularly scheduled elections are a hallmark of the American political system. In 18th-century Britain, the monarch could call new elections on a whim, and our Founders saw in that arrangement a seed of tyranny. The Constitution they designed requires elections for Congress every two years, and the next such elections are less than a year away. This is good news for conservatives as they continue to oppose the Obama administration. This president has been tremendously helped by having a Democratic-controlled Senate for his first five years in office. Harry Reid’s masterful, if not entirely virtuous, use of Senate rules has
The gangster state of North Korea became a nuclear power in 2006–07, despite lots of foreign aid aimed at precluding just such proliferation — help usually not otherwise accorded such a loony dictatorship. Apparently the civilized world rightly suspected that, if nuclear, Pyongyang would either export nuclear material and expertise to other unstable countries, or bully its successful but non-nuclear neighbors — or both. The United States has given billions of dollars in foreign aid to Pakistan, whose Islamist gangs have spearheaded radical anti-American terrorism. Ever since a corrupt Pakistan went nuclear in 1998, it has been able to extort such
After three months and more than 50 phone calls, John Gisler gave up on buying coverage through HealthCare.gov. Gisler wanted to purchase a plan for his 45-year-old son, who has a rare degenerative condition affecting his coordination and speech. His current coverage through Utah’s high-risk insurance pool plan ends Dec. 31. By that time, the Obama administration expects enrollees to transition into health plans sold through the new health-care law. But so far, Gisler hasn’t succeeded in purchasing coverage -- but not for a lack of effort. “We’ve had three separate applications that failed to make it through,” Gisler says. “I have a
New York — The anchor who might beat Bill O’Reilly gets her eyelash extensions applied one at a time, with tweezers and dabs of glue, about 90 minutes before showtime, right after a motorized gun sprays foundation over her face, neck, shoulders, collarbone and sternum, wiping out a galaxy of light freckles that spreads across her — Let me stop you right there. Photos of the day Uruguay legalizes marijuana, Kiev police pull back from protesters, aging U.S. prison population and more. Tuesday´s Photos of the day Would you write this way about a man? About O’Reilly himself? At least that’s what Megyn Kelly might ask at
When I was a kid, I knew two different Santa Clauses. The first had a fat belly, rosy cheeks, a long white beard, and skin as pink as bubble gum. He was omnipresent, visiting my pre-school and the local mall, visible in all of my favorite Christmas specials. Then there was the Santa in my family’s household, in the form of ornaments, cards, and holiday figurines. A near-carbon copy of the first one—big belly, rosy cheeks, long white beard: check, check, check. But his skin was as dark as mine. Seeing two different Santas was bewildering. Eventually I asked my father what
US President Barack Obama may have moved the masses attending Nelson Mandela’s memorial service with his stirring eulogy, but it was his grinning "selfie" with the Danish and British premiers that set social networks abuzz. In a candid moment captured by a photographer, Denmark’s Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt can be seen holding up her smartphone, with Obama lending a helping hand, as they pose for a picture with David Cameron, all three of them smiling broadly in their seats at Soweto’s World Cup stadium.(Snip)Mashable, the news and technology website, ran the photograph under the headline: ‘‘Dear Obama: Funerals are no place
In August 2013 I became very sick with what I thought was a cold. After a few days I lost vision in my left eye and I checked into the hospital. I soon found out that what I thought was a summer cold was actually Strep bacteria poisoning my blood stream. The bacteria blinded my left eye, ate a hole through my heart, caused five strokes on both sides of my brain and forced the removal of my prosthetic left knee. Dr. Lee was the surgeon assigned to perform open heart surgery. What was originally scheduled to last four hours ended
Johannesburg - A man who provided sign language interpretation on stage for Nelson Mandela´s memorial service, attended by scores of heads of state, was a "fake," the national director of the Deaf Federation of South Africa said on Tuesday. Asked about the claim by The Associated Press, South Africa´s government said it was preparing a statement. Three sign language experts said the man was not signing in South African or American sign languages. South African sign language covers all of the country´s 11 official languages, according to the federation. It wasn´t immediately clear if the unidentified man was using a
House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) snapped at conservative groups that have come out in opposition to the budget deal reached Wednesday between Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) and Sen. Patty Murray (D-Wash.). "They´re using the American people for their own purposes. This is ridiculous," Boehner said at a press conference with other members of House Republican leadership on Wednesday. Over the past few days, a number of conservative groups have blasted the deal because it sets discretionary spending levels in the budget higher than previous levels under sequestration. In the past three days, the influential Heritage Action, Club for Growth, Americans
President Obama’s job approval among American voters has dropped to negative territory with just 38 percent voicing their approval versus the 58 who says they disapprove, according to a national poll released Tuesday by the independent Quinnipiac University. That is one percent less than the 39% who said they approved of him in last month’s poll. The majority of the 2,692 registered voters the University in early December said that the president is not honest and trustworthy. When asked, “Do you approve or disapprove of the way Barack Obama is handling his job as President?,” respondents gave Obama lackluster ratings
