Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News

A record number of women have won major party nominations for governorships and seats in the House of Representatives this year -- a full month before primary season is officially over. Democrats on Tuesday chose former Michigan House Minority Leader Gretchen Whitmer (D) and Kansas state Sen. Laura Kelly (D) as their nominees for governorships. That brings the number of women who have won major party gubernatorial nominations to 11 -- one more than the previous record, set five times over the last quarter century.

This is a great trend. Get out and vote to help support these women, regardless of party affiliation, we need more balance at all levels of government to create a proper perspective in these hyper partisan times.

You can just feel the "real news" digging through their garbage and dirty laundry.

We might expect this trend to defuse international tensions over time and re-instill social values, until you consider the track record of women like Hillary Clinton, Margarete Thatcher and Madeleine Albright. With so much chaos in the White House, its hard to tell whether Trump is a lone diplomat for peace or just the latest narcissistic war monger.

I wish them success and am hopeful they can be a powerful positive influence on policy, which is sorely lacking.

I can't wait until every white man is out of office. For the past couple of decades I've had to listen to everyone whine and complain and say all of these problems are because of old white rich men in power. Now that they are losing power, that means all of our problems are going to go away. It's about time!

Dirk routinely punches the clown. But that's just "Miss Michigan" doing the dirty work.

As the Notorious BIG, beloved godfather of hip hop, once said:

"She don't remember s***, just two hits. Her hitting the floor and me hitting the cl*t. Sucking on the t*ts! Had the hooker begging for the d***."

Lord, I apologize for that there #7, and...be with the starving pygmies in New Guinea, amen.

No he doesn't.

That saying is hurtful and demeaning.

I demand an apology. I'm going to the HR department.

It's similar to Jules quoting Ezekial 25:17 before unloading on a poor sap, Frank Cotton likes to preface his beatdowns with:

"I'm going to bang twice today. First, I'm going to bang your head through the floor and then I'm going to bang your wife."
