ELECT THIS MAN
ELECT THIS MAN

Hey, you there! You are a sad Hillary voter, or you are a person saying arguments to the internet about how Bernie would have won (NO MORE DISCUSSING THAT), or you are protesting in the streets, or maybe you are just curled up in a ball day-drinking and waiting for the end of America on January 21. That’s all fine, and we need to have time to process and mourn and eat our feelings, but it’s also time to get FIRED UP, READY TO GO! for what needs to be the greatest period of libtard/progressive civic engagement in American history, at least since the first time “Arrested Development” was canceled.

And you need a thing to do! And his name is Democratic Louisiana Senate candidate Foster Campbell! No, you perverts, we don’t literally mean you are going to DO him, but you are going to DO whatever you can to get him elected.

The dealio here is that one million and five people were running for the Louisiana Senate seat formerly diaper-stained by gross diaper man David Vitter. Since nobody won a majority of the vote on election day, it’s going to a run-off, which will be held December 10. The Republican challenger John Kennedy got 25% of the vote in the first election, whereas Foster Campbell got only 17.5%, and Kennedy reportedly has a lot of structural advantages and more money dollars. But what did we learn last Tuesday? We learned you either TURN OUT or you gonna get TURNT OUT, you know what we are saying?

So go give Foster Campbell money.

You will do this because, if Campbell wins, the Republicans will only have a 51-49 majority in the Senate, which gives Dems just a little bit more power to push back on Donald Trump’s worst plans. It means it won’t be as much of a stretch to try to form majority coalitions with Republican senators who are occasionally decent on specific issues, like John McCain with Russia or Rand Paul opposing Rudy Giuliani and John Bolton for secretary of State. If 49 Democrats can pull a McCain and a Susan Collins across the aisle to oppose Trump erecting a statue of Vladimir Putin on top of the White House, we might be able to at least mitigate Trump’s damage, is what we mean.

So go give Foster Campbell money.

Another reason for why to do this is the 2018 midterms, which we have to start organizing for NOW, so call your mama and call your liberal congressman, and if you don’t have one of those, call your local party to see how you can get involved. The Democratic Senate map in 2018 is tough, TO SAY THE LEAST, so having one more seat filled with a Democrat up there in Washington could make a big difference.

So go give Foster Campbell money.

He is a good guy! He’s a cattle rancher good ol’ boy Louisiana dude who just happens to want to raise the minimum wage and go after Wall Street and do something to save Louisiana’s coastline, which, in case you have not heard, is disappearing due to global warming and the oil industry. He wants to fix it with SCIENCE! Doesn’t he sound like a nice new work boyfriend for Elizabeth Warren?

We think so! So give him money. If you have time for a quick weekender, head to Louisiana — WHERE NEW ORLEANS IS — and do some volunteering for him! While you are there, eat at Mandina’s and Cafe Degas and also a million other places, we don’t care, it’s not our responsibility to plan your meals.

If you can’t make it down South, you could always make phone calls for Campbell! And then give him more money. And like him on Facebook! And share this post on Facebook and Twitter and wherever else you share the things! (You are already sharing at least one post a day on Facebook, like the Editrix told you, to do your part in the war on fake news bullshit, RIGHT?)

Now, don’t be all “Meh, Louisiana is deep red, WTF are the chances even?” Remember that Louisiana just elected a nice Democratic governor named John Bel Edwards (who was running against diaper boy), and also look at this picture of Campbell’s butt and note that he is wearing Wranglers. Told you he was a good ol’ boy. But a GOOD good ol’ boy.

wranglers

That guy with that Wrangler butt could win. But only if Democrats and liberals and even Trump supporters who might be having a little Brexit-style buyer’s remorse DO SOMETHING AND MAKE IT HAPPEN, CAP’N.

OK, we are done ordering you around until next time we feel like it, which is right now. SHARE THIS POST, YOU GUYS, BECAUSE WE SAID SO.

  • Nounverb911

    At a fast glance Campbell looks just like Newt Gingrich….

  • Zippy W Pinhead

    Also too, Lindsey Graham has vowed to oppose any attempts in the Senate to engage the nuclear option re: filibusters. At 51-49, with Graham already on board, all it takes is one more GOP senator to flip to avoid the 50-50 tie that Pence would break

  • Oblios_Cap

    There is definitely a difference between a good ole boy and a redneck turd.

          I love how the BoB’s in their comments are losing their minds and calling Eichenwald a hack- sorry clowns, this is exactly what we’ve been saying. Hillz had her baggage that no doubt hurt her, but Bernie had his too and the GOP were licking their chops about the chance to use it.

    • Jamoche

      Just from watching Bernie on Colbert recently, I’m not sure he’d have appealed to Hillary’s voters. Being called “liberal elites” is something we usually only hear from the Republican side.

      Don’t judge a book by it’s cover – or accent.
      People hear my voice and think that I am a tall white woman. In the 80’s, I had an industrial customer (let’s call them William Carter’s, cuz that was their name) and their plant was in Middle Georgia. I would talk to them on the phone all the time about their computer problems. So the first time I show up, I talk to the receptionist and sit in the reception area for a long while. I go back to the desk and ask “what dafuq. I have an appointment.” The manager comes out and he’s all flustered. Later someone told me the deal. We all got to be great friends. I would get invited to the Thanksgiving potluck. I’d bring new demo equip down and show them the bleeding edge tech. I’d show them how to maintain their current equipment, so they wouldn’t have to pay for support. The greatest country people.

  • Jeffocaster in the desert

    HEY! I wear Wranglers (Not no elitist Levi stone washed hand rubbed pretorn worn out because we are too lazy to wear our own out jeans). I am a not a good old boy. I am a Libtard, old fart curmudgeon.

    • cynmac will never surrender

      Do they fit your flat butt betterer? As a black woman, I have too much jelly to wear Wranglers. Even Lee and Levis have adjusted their styles to include some for us. Not Wrangler.

      • BigBoppa pour la résistance

        I’m a white guy with normal white-guy butt (sort of like two shoe boxes standing on end). I bought some Wrangler jeans for the first time several years ago. I hated them. It was like walking around with a permanent wedgie. Had to put them in the Veteran’s clothing drive bag. Maybe they were a badly made pair but I never tried them again.

    • Markuserektus

      Wranglers were considered right-wingy because Levi’s was San Francisco based and the first major company to offer benefits to same sex partners. Levi’s pendulum has swung away from sand blasted jeans (because people in lesser developed countries were suffering with silicosis and no medical benefits) to not washing your jeans at all…put them in the freezer to kill bacteria.

      • BigBoppa pour la résistance

        I tried putting my jeans in the freezer once. The shrinkage was way worse than going in the pool.

        • Shanana Republic

      I’d vote for Justin Wilson before I’d vote for Jill Stein.

      • CogitoErgoBibo

        I don’t know who your Justin Wilson is, but since that’s also the name of a beloved, now deceased IndyCar driver, I’d vote for my Justin Wilson before her too. Probably Justin Timberlake, as well.

        • BadKitty904

          Well-known (at least in the South) Cajun (I mean, seriously *Cajun*) chef and comedian, back in the day.

            Oh cool! I do love a good jambalaya or etouffee. I’m down with that.

          • BadKitty904

            Give a listen to some of his YouTube videos. A genuinely funny man, an excellent cook for traditional Cajun dishes, and “dem Cajun patois” is well worth hearing…

            I remember him now. He always measured out a teaspoon of salt using the palm of his hand.

            “I’m gonna show you now dem trick what fo’ measurin’ salt…”

        • Carpe Vagenda

          Used to have a cooking show on PBS. Decent plain cook, but the hokiest overblown ‘cajun’ accent ever, and seemingly lived in overalls.

          • BigBoppa pour la résistance

            He was actually playing a character that he developed over many years working as a safety engineer doing lectures to refinery workers in the South. He was a Cajun by birth, but the over the top accent and corn pone stories were an act that evolved over time and he pulled off quite successfully. The TV cooking gig came about after he retired from his real job.

          • Carpe Vagenda

            Oh, interesting. I figured (I’ve been told) it was an act, I just didn’t know anything about his background. Good for him.

      • tza

        I would genuinely vote for Rand Paul, Jeb Bush, or Herman Cain before Jill Stein.

      • Msgr_Moment

        I’d vote her with a votey chainsaw up the votehole. Wait. What?

      • Meanie-meanie, tickle a person

        Put them vote on there!

        • BadKitty904

          “Aw, yaaaaaaaaaaaah, sho’! Whoooooo…!”

    • QHarp, Mujer malévola

      That’s a totally unfair characterization of Louisianans. We’re the ones who once had to choose between David Duke and Edwin Edwards (who was so corrupt that they sent him to prison as white man in his 70s convicted of white collar crime AND who once said that the only way he wouldn’t get elected was if they caught him in bed with a dead woman or a live boy). I mean, Louisianans were also responsible for those two being in the runoff in the first place, but goddamned if we don’t how to choose between the lesser of two evils.

      • House0fTheBlueLights

        They can’t, though. They’re limited to people on the ballot in all 50 states. The only non-Clinton (and that ain’t gonna happen) scenario is no one gets to 270, and it goes to the House, where who knows what the fuck would happen.

        It’s a Disqus problem. I can’t run videos embedded in tweets.

            Yeah, I use Chrome. So it’s their system.

      Fuck third parties, period. They don’t make sense with the system we have, and they don’t even bother with competent candidates.

      • efoveks

        Especially that last part.

      • MynameisBlarney

        I used to think it would be better to have more political parties, but now…not so much.

        • cynmac will never surrender

          I like that the Dems have a wider tent. And there are sub-parties. Bernie is actually closely aligned with the Democratic Socialists of America. Al Franken has a party called Minnesota Democratic–Farmer–Labor Party.
          The Libertarian Party has been putting up candidates for local races. There was one on my state ballot this year and it was a choice between the Libertarian and a Republican, no Democrat ran.
          That said, Jill Stein is a waste of human meat, with votes. I know people who voted for Bernie in the primary, ignored his endorsement of Hillary and voted for Stein. It was in Georgia, where it wasn’t going to matter that much. I was excited to say that Blacks were 40% of the Georgia voters this year!

          • H0mer0

            just like some of the Naderites who gave us Dubya, it’s not as if they were going to vote for Hillary (I added “some” because Trixie admitted she voted for Nader.)

          • cynmac will never surrender

            Papa Bush, Bill Weld (maybe, my BF claims the story is false), lots of people did vote for Hillary and then others hate-voted for anyone else.

      • YayConspiracy

        I’m gonna stuffy my smelly socks in any mouth babbling about ‘offering choices’.

    My older brother went to high school with Mr. Campbell. As a North Louisiana Democrat he is a bit to Jesusy. Send him money, help him win!

    Foster Campbell is prolly related to Foster Brooks. Therefore, he’s A-OK with this Libtard.

            Andy Noel @asnoel

            Richard Engel just said on NBC that some generals are reading the Constitution to determine their authority to override the President. Wow.

          • MynameisBlarney

            Thanks!
            Also, too. HOLYFUCKINGSHIT!

          • BadKitty904
          • cynmac will never surrender

            Allegedly, generals in the armed forces are looking for rules in the Constitution that give them the right to refuse Trump’s orders.

          • MynameisBlarney

            Thank ya!

          • Daisy

            Generals are looking over the Constitution to see if they can override the President.

          • MynameisBlarney

            Maybe the EC will flip the vote after all.

          • Daisy

            If this gets any worse, they may be forced to. In other words, I agree, I’m just not holding my breath.

          • Can you imagine what the trumpanzees would do if the EC overturned the election?

          • BadKitty904

            Same thing they’ve always done – bitch and whine.

          • Daisy

            Honestly, they aren’t behaving well now.

            I’m sure. I grew up in one of the reddest parts of California. It was just delightful.

          • H0mer0

            would that be “Redding,” California?

          • Jenny, Manocidal Vagendiac

            A bunch of lone wolves gunning down people in theaters, schools, places of worship, and public gatherings?

          • Jamoche

            Burn churches, attack people, tell little kids their parents are going to be deported?

          • Daisy

            So, what they do now?

          • MynameisBlarney

            Probably pretty much what they’re doing now.
            Being total assholes.

          • MynameisBlarney

            Also, let them go ape shit!
            If it prevents a trump administration and ALL that would go with it. It’s a risk well worth taking IMHO.

          • Historicat

            Then it would be time for some cut and paste: “you lost – get over it”

    • Jamoche

      What Donnie doesn’t know is that there’s a fuckton of the government that has sworn to defend the nation and the Constitution but *not* specifically the President.

      May all of them recognize their inner Sam Vimes.

      • Dazza

    • Anna Rompage

      Holy crap…. If it’s true, it’s fucking huge… Mutiny!

      • cynmac will never surrender

        No, they are trying to avoid charges of mutiny. So that if there is a Nuremburg like trial, they can avoid saying “I was just following orders”.

        • Anna Rompage

          This is true!

      • BadKitty904

    • Anna Rompage

      Technically I believe they can disobey an order if they deem it an illegal action, but I’m sure it means putting ones neck on the line, forced retirement, and even a stint in Leavenworth until the courts clear them from insubordination…

    • georgiaburning

      Officers swear to defend the Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic. This came from Civil War days. Enlisted people swear that, plus to obey the orders of the President and and the officers appointed over them. These oaths are established by acts of Congress.

      • boyblue122

        so if the officers consider the president a domestic enemy then what

        • georgiaburning

          I’ve wondered about that for years, with the polarization in society

          • boyblue122

            at the very least officers should be able to report any questionable orders from the POTUS to a worldwide organization like NATO or something, right

      • H0mer0

        Nuh uh! “State-your-name” took the oath!

    • BeachBum

      I’m sure they are old enough to remember fragging in Nam. Which of course never happened.

    • Hobbes’ Evil Twin

      Aaaaaaaaaaaand. This is the first time they’ve read the Constitution?
      Well that’s fucking comforting,

      • Lori

        The more optimistic assumption is that it’s the first time they’ve read it looking for a way to disregard orders from the Commander in Chief without facing a court martial.

    Done. This continues my effort to support all the anti-Trumps. Gave to PP, SPLC, ACLU, now Foster Campbell.

    Also, called my Congressman for the first time ever. The person I spoke with said, “The Congressman has signed a letter calling on Trump to rescind the appointment of Steve Bannon.” I said, “I applaud that, but I want the Congressman to be more than a person who signs a letter. I want him to be visible and vocal in his opposition.” Folks, make the call, especially those of you who can’t get to a protest for whatever reason. Democrats in Congress don’t have much leverage, but Democrats on the street have the power of being pains in the ass. Be a pain in the ass!

    hate to be debbie downer, but……..in some New Orleans neighborhoods, the proportion of voters disenfranchised was well into the double digits. More than 22 percent of adults in parts of the Iberville-Treme neighborhood made the secretary of state’s list of barred voters; they’re either in prison, or on probation or parole. Other ZIP codes weren’t far behind, including Central City (19 percent), the Ninth Ward (15 percent) and parts of Broadmoor, Algiers and eastern New Orleans (10 percent). All of these areas are predominantly African-American

    • cosmiccowgirl

      And yet Orleans Parish still went 80 something percent for Hillary. I honestly don’t think Foster Campbell will win, like at all, but I’m still going to make calls, canvass, and give money. We can’t just give up.
