And here’s Texas Gov. Rick Perry’s mugshot to brighten your evening.
He turned himself in today at the Travis County Jail in Austin after being indicted on two felony charges last Friday stemming from allegations that his office maneuvered to force Travis County District Attorney Rosemary Lehmberg to resign from her position. .
And yet we all still lost.
This election is going to be a slow-mo train wreck, and I’m 100% here for it.
David Brat is 100% batshit. However, I’m dying forever from headlines reading “Brat Defeats Cantor”.
Eric Cantor stared into the abyss, and it slapped him in his arrogant, smug face.
Now, when the news breaks of the next mass shooting, I’m grateful when the casualties are in the single digits, instead of horrified that it occurred in the first place. I’m not okay with this.
These are places where we should feel safe — schools, shopping centers, churches.
Instead, we applaud the manufacturing of bulletproof blankets and whiteboards. We hold our breath waiting to hear whether the “threat” has been neutralized.
It’s not, and at this pace, it never will be. I’m thirty years old. I remember after Columbine, we all said, “Not one more.”
It’s been a decade and a half. We recite the names of the dead in a ritualistic manner, prayer beads on a never-ending string. We ask, “How did this happen again?” and drop the question because it’s never the right time. There never will be a “right time” when the violence happens all the time.
It’s the right time NOW.
NOT. ONE. MORE.
Nope, nothing at all.

The posters depict gubernatorial candidate Wendy Davis as a Barbie doll with a pair of scissors and a plastic fetus in her stomach.
It’s just as disgusting as it sounds.
CNN brings you the hard-hitting coverage we’ve come to expect from this particular member of the fourth estate.
Another one bites the dust.
I collaborated with Matthew Cardinale, editor/founder of Atlanta Progressive News, on an exposé of Officer Edward Rabb. Rabb is currently serving as a cop for the Atlanta PD despite a 735+ page disciplinary file containing charges of domestic assault, failure to respond to a call, losing a suspect’s gun, failure to appear in court, a DUI, and a violent sexual assault.

Disgusting, racist twits. There’s plenty of evidence on social media, just sayin’.
