    Yikes. Ron Paul just seems to have suffered a stroke while giving an interview on life stream. Wish I had not watched that on social media. Poor guy.

    Legitimately or are you being factious?

    EDIT: I misread it as Rand Paul but still, he had a stroke on live TV. Holy cow ...

    Just saw the video. Terrifying to see how fast it happens. I do hope he is able to make a full recovery.

    I saw a tweet with him in the hospital giving a thumbs up, so he'll be okay. Still, that must have been scary as bleep.

    Craziest thing that could possibly happen. Trump wins the popular vote, but looses the electoral college. I know itís unlikely but what if?

    On this date in 2014, 2015, 2016, as well as 2017, "Crazy/Stupid Republican of the Day" published profiles of Kansas Governor Sam Brownback, a man whose dedication to smaller government and lowered taxes has left his state with billion dollar budget deficits (annually), forced early school closures due to the state education budget running out of money before the scheduled end of the school year, and an overall dedication to Fundamentalist philosophies against abortion and LGBT rights that have forced the Kansas Supreme Court to step in, repeatedly. After repeatedly blocking the expansion of Medicaid in Kansas, Brownback released a statement that his opposition to the Medicaid expansion was that it would be “morally reprehensible” because it would help “able-bodied adults … who choose not to work” and would send money to “big city hospitals.” And Brownback chafes at any check or balance upon his power, particularly from the judiciary who he’s threatened to defund, as his leadership continues to abuse the poor and destitute, while allowing the wealthiest citizens to reach even greater heights of prosperity. Brownback still insists that it’s fine for him to conduct government business from his own private e-mail that is exempt from transparency laws, and only won re-election in 2014 with 49.8% of the vote, while other members of the GOP dominated at the polls, his approval ratings hover in the 30s, and several Kansas Republicans have turned to endorsing Democratic candidates rather than let his loyalists run roughshod over the greater good for Kansas. Kansas has had such a rough time of finding the money to run their own state that they were forced to auction off $163,000 of sex toys confiscated by law enforcement in 2015 to meet budget shortfalls. And when people actually report on how bad the plight of bad governance in Kansas actually is and how he’s been an abject failure as the state’s chief executive, Gov. Brownback claims everything’s fine, and it’s all just a “liberal conspiracy” to smear how good of a job he’s doing. Already in lame-duck status going into 2018, Republican officials convinced Donald Trump to nominate Sam Brownback to be his religious freedom ambassador, one of the few appointments he has made to the State Department, and Brownback resigned rather than flail about for the last few months of his term. As such, we'll set aside his profile to go ahead and take a look at a different kooky Republican today instead. (Current crazy/stupid scoreboard, is now 693-30, since this was established in July 2014.)



    It was on this date in both 2018, as well as 2019, “Crazy/Stupid Republican of the Day” profiled Matt Rosendale, who was a 2018 candidate for U.S Senate in Montana who unsuccessfully tried to swipe the seat of Democratic Senator Jon Tester, and who in 2020 is currently trying to get elected to the U.S. House of Representatives for Montana’s At-Large seat. Rosendale touts his background as a real estate investor from Maryland who pretends he’s a rancher out on the range from almost all the way across the country, but all public records show, though, that Rosendale is a “rancher” by way of just renting real estate out to others who actually do the ranching on that land. This would be like if a landlord claimed to be a professional cosplayer because one of their tenants went to a comic convention dressed as Sailor Moon.

    Anyway, that reputation as a carpetbagger is already rather established in Montana, because Rosendale was bludgeoned with that label when he was defeated in the 2014 Congressional Primary for Montana’s At-Large seat in the U.S. House of Representatives against CSGOPOTD alumni Ryan Zinke. After winning one term in the Tea Party Wave in Montana back in 2010 to get into the State House, Rosendale won a single term in the Montana State Senate in 2012, before his losing streak started. The only election he’s won in Montana was for State Auditor in 2016, on the benefit of getting to run unopposed.

    And, because Rosendale is willing to campaign on immigration by calling for Donald Trump’s stupid idea for a border wall along the U.S./Mexico border and Sen. Jon Tester has s***talked the thin-skinned orange menace, Emperor Dementia von F***face himself went to campaign on Rosendale’s behalf, which amounted to him rambling incoherently for almost an hour while barely mentioning the candidate. That would be the same rally where Trump lost the crowd enough that a guy in a plaid shirt upstaged him, and that other attendees were escorted out and replaced with plants because they didn’t look enthusiastic enough.

    Our main issues with Rosendale, however, aren’t his carpetbagging, so much as they are with his rampant racism. That’s almost a given, we know, with labeling himself a Trump conservative and wanting a border wall, but because he’s spoken highly of white supremacists in Montana like Taylor Rose and Chuck Baldwin. Or how after Florida Congressman Ron DeSantis was outed as the moderator of a Facebook group of conservatives that exists almost solely to share racist memes and insane conspiracy theories like Pizzagate or that the left orchestrated Charlottesville, Rosendale was revealed to have been an active member of it for some time (when caught, he dropped himself from the group).

    Matt Rosendale couldn’t seem to go more than a week without a major campaign gaffe, as he’s being investigated by the Federal Election Commission because his campaign was illegally coordinating their ad campaigns with the NRA because he himself blurted out that he was doing it in a televised interview.

    While Rosendale was defeated in his 2018 match-up with John Tester, earning only 47% of the vote, he has not given up in his quest to find his way to Washington, and announced that in 2020, he will be taking a crack at winning the At-Large seat in the U.S. House of Representatives for Montana, what with Greg Gianforte opting to instead run to be the next Governor of Montana. Rosendale positioned himself as the “Trump candidate” in the GOP Primary, and advanced out of it to face Democrat Kathleen Williams, a former state legislator, in November. Polling shows the race is very tight, and Williams could be the one to flip this seat blue for the first time since 1994.

    Let’s hope that Montana repeats their 2018 decision and rejects allowing Rosendale into Congress.
