Political scientist Sabato predicted 2008 election Dems/364-Repubs174 – Election results Dems/365-Repubs/173
Political pundit Chuck Todd wants you to be politically insecure about the close outcome he projects so you must keep watching Meet the Press and Meet the Press Daily for the next 99 days for more claptrap coverage.
Mayor McGrady is a political mook. He and his illegitimate political council appointee Steve Goodin played fast and lose with the economic development of Aberdeen by voting against a $1 million state grant to support Frito Lays $60 mill expansion. The same mooky McGrady wondered out loud 6 weeks ago why the Lidl grocery corp didn’t bring their hq and distribution center to Aberdeen when they decided to put a retail outlet in town. Its simple. Cecil County’s deal was a $360K State loan, a $16,000 conditional loan and a $20,000 worker training grant by Cecil’s OED. At the time Lidl made there decision, Aberdeen City was involved in a crazy five month long struggle to have a council run-off vote to resolve the tie-vote council seat. And the result was not a proper democratic process but instead it was a rigged corrupt run-off procedure that ended up putting one of McGrady’s Tea Party cronies in office who had nothing to do with the tie-vote.
If Lidl was watching this political fiasco that ended in political corruption, what would they think? A Mad Hatter Tea Party Mayor who couldn’t do a proper democratic runoff in ten days. And to top it off, the Tea Party Mayor was a rightwing-nut political mook who doesn’t think govt should give corps economic incentives. The crony-crooked Mayor of Aberdeen ‘doesn’t like socalled “economic cronyism”.. The retailers are watching the political stability of Aberdeen city government and if there not laughing then they must be shaking their heads in bewilderment..
While Republican Harford County States Attorney Joe Cassilly is not fit to be a judge, his little brother ,newly elected Md. State Senator Bob Cassilly got him a raise eqivalent to a District Court judge with Senate Bill 146. Is the matter unethical, immoral and illegal? Should a State Senator be able to use his political influence to get his brother a pay raise? Write your State Senator…er…oh you cant do that! Write your congressman! Ask the Republican Aegis/Sun why they didn’t report or examine the matter! And thank Soul Crusher at the Dodgy Dagger for once again pointing out POLITICAL CORRUPTION !!!!
The Aberdeen Mayor that doesn’t like the democratic process in elections and in city council matters recently selected without Council discussion or vote a new insurance company for city employees. Mayor McGrady with advise from a non-elected crony ( the mysterious Mr. Gary Wilson) decided to change City employee insurance from Cigna to Evergreen. A representative of the city police union,Jason Neidig, testified against the arrogant autocratic decision pointing out that the city Finance Director opposed the change also. There also was no input on the matter sought from employees or the general public. The Mayor just buried the unilateral decision in the annual budget. The City Council was asleep at the wheel over the decision and did not raise any questions or interest in the matter . The Council surrendered their responsibilty to be a checks and balance to the mayors corrupt decision making process again.

This was not the first Republican event for Spencer, who spent his early professional years following the small paleoconservative niches blazed by people like Pat Buchannan and Taki Theodoracopulos. After penning a defense of the student Lacrosse players at Duke University who were accused of sexually assaulting a sex worker of color for the William Taft society, he was brought on as an Assistant Editor of arts at the American Conservative. The magazine made a name for itself through Scott McConnell’s attempt to channel Old Right politics into a world disgusted by most of the excess of Neoconservative foreign policy, coming out against the Iraq War while few on the right were.
McConnell eventually helped Spencer to land a job…

Knew when Wilmore made the speech at the National Press Club, and called President Obama “My N888ga”,
He was on the way out.
I borrowed something here from my friend Steve who owns Urban Profile, over at Urbanprofile.com. He has sold a line of T-Shirts with the logo “Too Black” for a while, and I think the message there sums up what made Comedy Central so uncomfortable with Wilmore. If you like the message, I suggest you go over and give Steve some business.
They take my kindness for. . . . . WEAKNESS.
They take my silence for. . . . . SPEECHLESS.
They consider my uniqueness. . . . . STRANGE.
They call my language. . . . . . SLANG.
They see my confidence as. . . . . CONCEIT.
They see my mistakes as. . . . . DEFEAT.
They consider my success. …

Another unarmed black teen shot in the back by Police…
Paul O’Neal, the black teenager who was killed by Chicago police, died of a single gunshot wound to the back, the Cook County medical examiner’s office confirmed in an autopsy report released Wednesday.
The teen did not have any illegal drugs in his system, CBS Chicago reports.
A Chicago police officer shot and killed O’Neal July 28, in an incident that was partly captured on video. The medical examiner’s office report stated that O’Neal was seen driving a 2002 Jaguar, a vehicle that had been reported stolen.
O’Neal, 18, reportedly refused to stop the vehicle and “rammed head on” into a marked squad car, injuring two officers. After the impact he got out and ran.
“During the foot pursuit shots were fired by other unidentified officers on the scene and possibly by O’Neal,” the…

Wilmore turn up some serious heat on Faux New’s racist commentator Bill O’Reilly,
Bill O’Reilly isn’t just upset at black people for having “tattoos on their foreheads,”he’s angry with those of us who pointed out that all black people don’t have tattoos on their foreheads — and Larry Wilmore is fed up with it.
On The Nightly Show Tuesday, Wilmore didn’t just attack O’Reilly, he needed an entirely new shtick in order to demonstrate the Fox News host’s depravity. He began, as he does, seated. “The worst part is that O’Reilly had the gall to be upset by the backlash from his statements,” he said, before complaining that O’Reilly tried to use “fantasy hands” to wave the racism away.
“You can’t use fantasy hands to describe racism!” Wilmore said…

I guess Larry wasn’t “Fact Free” enough…Or white enough after his praise of President Obama.
Comedy Central announced Monday it is canceling Larry Wilmore’s The Nightly Show, and the last episode will air Thursday. Comedy Central President Kent Alterman said the show has not been resonating with the cable channel’s audience. “Even though we’ve given it a year and a half, we’ve been hoping against hope that it would start to click with our audience, but it hasn’t happened and we haven’t seen evidence of it happening,” Alterman said. Wilmore recently headlined the White House Correspondents’ Dinner, where he was roundly criticized for using the n-word. Rory Albanese, a comedian who works on the show, tweeted Monday morning: “I’m very proud to have been a part of a show that has been funny, diverse & extremely necessary.”
Gaining traction against the intractable…
U.S. District Judge James Robart held a dramatic hearing on Monday that began with a fierce rebuke of the Seattle police union’s refusal to address unconstitutional policing and closed with a declaration from the bench that “black lives matter.” Robart’s comment marks the first time a sitting federal judge has explicitly cited the nascent civil rights movement, though Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor hasechoed its calls to end police brutality and validated the demands for police reform.
Robart, a George W. Bush appointee, is presiding over a consent decree—a court-ordered settlement—between the Justice Department and Seattle reached in 2012. That agreement required the city to remedy unconstitutional practices at nearly every level of policing, from illegal stops to unreasonable and deadly use of force. Since then, Seattle’s chief of police Kathleen O’Toole has pushed…
