Many moons ago, when we were recovering the enriched uranium from Kazakhstan (Search Project Sapphire), we had a plan to fly it directly into the Oak Ridge area in order to minimize transit time to the facility.
When Gore found out our plan, he said "you're not flying that crap into MY state". Instead, we had to truck it from Delaware to Tennessee. Smooth move Mr. Vice President!

You can buy a piece of the Great Negotiator's property on the cheap.

Tell all your conservative friends and guests Trump slept here.

But no telling with which of his wives or girlfriends.

The asking price for President Trump’s Caribbean estate has been cut dramatically

Wow

But you might want to steer clear of that place, looks like the tennis courts will be underwater in a few years.

Is a big centrist movement on the horizon?

Anti-Trump Independents Are Starting to Organize - POLITICO Magazine

Quote:
But with a historically unpopular Republican president in the White House and a Democratic Party in epic disarray, they think this is actually their moment.
Quote:
“They’re committed to running as independents for the reasons of disrupting and changing the political system, not because they’re on the fringe,” Searby says. “When they start to see that there is not only a viable plan—a business plan, a fundraising plan, but also a serious network of people—that’s when you can see the light bulbs go off.”

Looks like the Dems have a problem even bigger than their weak liberal candidates.

Michelle Obama’s former policy director enters race for Maryland governor

Quote:
Krishanti Vignarajah, a onetime policy director for former first lady Michelle Obama, announced Wednesday that she plans to enter the race for Maryland governor, becoming the first woman to join the crowded field for the 2018 Democratic nomination.

Vignarajah plans an official campaign announcement next month.

“I am running for governor because I am worried my daughter will not have the same opportunities my parents gave me when they brought our family here when I was a baby girl,” she said in a statement. “I hope Marylanders will agree the best man for the job is a woman.”

Vignarajah, 37, of Gaithersburg, will compete against Prince George’s County Executive Rushern L. Baker III, former NAACP president Ben Jealous, state Sen. Richard S. Madaleno Jr. (D-Montgomery), technology entrepreneur Alec Ross and lawyer James L. Shea.

Baltimore County Executive Kevin B. Kamenetz, former Maryland attorney general Douglas F. Gansler and Maya Rockeymoore, a policy consultant who is married to U.S. Rep. Elijah E. Cummings (D-Md.), also have said they are considering the race. Last month, U.S. Rep. John Delaney opted out of the race and announced plans to run for president.

Michelle Obama had a policy director? Is that the person to blame for kids not wanting to eat their lunch? Perfect for Maryland.

Top Trump donor ponies up to take out Flake - POLITICO

Quote:
One of Donald Trump’s most generous political benefactors is providing a six-figure donation to a super PAC devoted to unseating Sen. Jeff Flake, an Arizona Republican who has been fiercely critical of the president.

Robert Mercer, a reclusive hedge fund billionaire who was intimately involved in Trump’s rise and helped to bankroll his 2016 campaign, is contributing $300,000 to a super PAC supporting former state Sen. Kelli Ward, who is challenging Flake in a Republican primary next year.

I hope all Republicans going against Trump win primaries and general elections. I imagine Flake will not be alone when the time comes.

Betting a Republican (Rokita) will take the Dem seat (Donnelly) in Indiana.
