For all of the stories of politicians that say or do stupid things that might not be worth threads on their own.

To start:


A Mayoral Candidate in Sumter, South Carolina faked a felony assault and kidnapping attempt she broadcasted on Facebook Live in an attempt to generate sympathy and smear her opponents in the upcoming Mayoral Election. She apparently also had plans to further smear other candidates later in the election as well.

That makes me angry really. He is plagiarizing the dying words of a good man, one that I might disagree with, but he was a good man none the less. And really the NDP's last hurrah before they became an utter joke, though I guess they have the consolation that they aren't as huge a joke as the greens or the liberals as they stand now.

Anchorage Alaska Mayor Ethan Berkowitz did an oopsie with a local news media personality that apparently involved a picture of his posterior.

I guess Alaskan news media isn't quite that liberal. Stop shaming sexwork!

When even CNN won't cover your wrinkly ass as a Democrat.
Oh man those quotes are rich. Wolf Blitzer her lose her cool. Best exchange.



""As we say, don't let perfect be the enemy of the good," Blitzer reiterated."

"It is nowhere near perfect ... we're not even close to the good," Pelosi shot back. "Thank you for your sensitivity to our constituents' needs."

"I am sensitive to them because I see them on the street begging for food, begging for money," the anchor said.

"Have you fed them?" Pelosi blurted out. "We feed them, we feed them."





Yes the difference is Pelosi feeds them with taxpayer debt that filters through a giant government bureaucracy where incumbent politicians like her suspiciously become millionaires.

Wolf probably does something crazy like donating directly to a charity. :eek:
