Ohio Democrat crashes GOP event trashing him for calling Mitch McConnell a ‘tw*t burrito’

Published

on

Ohio Republicans convened a press conference on Monday seeking to undermine Democrat David Sparks’ run for the state House, only to see Sparks and his supporters attend the event.

“I’m not afraid of these people,” Sparks told the Columbus Dispatch. “I went right into their living room and punched them in the face with some logic.”

The press conference was intended to spotlight footage Republicans are citing as proof that Sparks is not qualified to beat incumbent Jeff Rezabek (R) in the race for the state 43rd District seat. Several of the clips were taken from Sparks’ YouTube show, which he bills as “an ongoing exploration of issues and thought by David Sparks.”

In one episode that aired last July, Sparks calls Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia “a douche,” and “one of the biggest douches that have been produced in the history of homosapien production here in the United States.” On the same show, he refers to House Speaker Mitch McConnell (R-KY) as “a tw*t burrito.”

A clip from another episode shows Sparks recalling how he tried smoking crack cocaine when he was 20 years old, saying, “I got real high for like five minutes.”

“We need people who are honest about their life experiences,” Sparks said in response to Republican criticism. “I have the life experiences of everyday people, not a bunch of stuffy lawyers.”

But state Republicans are demanding that House Minority Leader Fred Strahorn (D) reject Sparks’ candidacy.

“Anyone who watches these videos would agree that David Sparks is not the kind of person that Ohioans deserve to represent them in the Statehouse,” said state GOP chair Matt Borges. “The childish nature of these remarks are disturbing and do not illustrate the kind of character of a qualified public servant.”

HBO "Real Time" host Bill Maher broke down the latest scandal facing the United States Supreme Court.

"Brett Kavanaugh's penis is back in the news," Maher said. "The New York Times kind of tripped over his dick on this one."

Maher suggested the report reflects poorly on Kavanaugh's manhood.

"The problem is the woman, the victim, has no recollection of it happening -- which isn't really a ringing endorsement of his penis," Maher said.

‘It’s all up to Republicans’: Columnist wonders when the GOP will stand up to Trump

Published

on

President Donald Trump's burgeoning scandal with Ukraine has one columnist wondering when Republicans will put country before party.

"I was going to write today about how House Democrats are handling the impeachment question. But the truth is, it’s largely irrelevant. As long as Republicans are united in opposition, President Donald Trump will stay in office," Bloomberg Opinion columnist Jonathan Bernstein wrote. "That’s not to say that there aren’t bad and worse choices for Democrats, but they’re not the ones who have the real decision to make."
