Lib Senator Al Franken Cancels Bill Maher Appearance Amid “House Ni&&er” Comment Controversy

YOU WOULD NEVER WANT THIS DUDE IN YOUR FOX HOLE …

Following the Bill Maher “house ni**er” comment controversy from HBO’s “Real Time” show, Sen. Al Franken has now canceled his appearance..  It wasn’t too long ago that Sen. Franken (D-MN) said he would stand behind liberal comedian Kathy Griffin and appear with her after her ill-fate Trump decapitated head stunt. Guess what, Franken flip-flopped on his words and has since canceled his appearance with Griffin too. This is kind of interesting seeing that Franken got his fame in life from being a former SNL cast member. If there is anyone who would have stood behind fellow comedians, one would have thought it would have been Stuart Smalley. Maher has since apologized for using the term. But the damage has been dome. Because a liberal politician pandering and schilling a book has no room for context of words.

It is rather interesting to see libs attack their own. I guess its a good think Richard Pryor is no longer able to do his act, or Eddie Murphy for that fact. Who finds it fascinating that the Democrat party had no problem electing for year, Sen. Robert Byrd from West Virginia, a former member of the KKK and Exalted Cyclops, yet what Maher said is just completely wrong?

A spokesperson for Sen. Al Franken (D-Minn.) confirmed to HuffPost that the senator is canceling his appearance on the upcoming episode of “Real Time” in the wake of host Bill Maher’s use of a racial slur on-air.

“Senator Franken believes that what Bill Maher said was inappropriate and offensive, which is why he made the decision not to appear on the next episode of ‘Real Time,’” the spokesperson said in an emailed statement. “He was glad to see Bill, who the Senator considers to be a good friend, apologize and express sincere regret for his comment.”

Last Friday, Maher joked that he was a “house n****r” while in conversation with Sen. Ben Sasse (R-Neb.), who invited Maher to “work in the fields” of his represented state. Maher later called his use of the term “offensive.”

The backlash was strong enough for Maher to apologize ? something he’s known for rarely doing ? and for HBO to confirm that the network currently has no plans to fire him.

Is Harry Reid Finished in the Senate, Will He Retire … Reid is the ‘Most Vulnerable’ in 2016

COULD DINGY HARRY BE CALLING IT QUITS IN 2016?

Could it finally be the end of the road for Sen. Harry Reid? The Democrat Senate Minority Leader is considered the most vulnerable in 2016. According to the “Crystal Ball,” Reid is one of the most vulnerable Democrat Senators up for reelection in the 2016 cycle. Reid will be 77 years old in 2016 and most likely still in a position to not be in the majority. However, every time that it is predicted that its over for Harry Reid and he is trailing in the polls prior to election day, miraculously, he pulls a rabbit out of a hat.

This this VIDEO, boy does he sound tired and old

Senate minority leader Harry Reid is the most vulnerable Democrat up for re-election in 2016, and may retire to duck a humiliating defeat, according to a new analysis of the 2016 race.

“We identified Reid as probably the most vulnerable Democratic incumbent in this Senate cycle,” said a “Crystal Ball” report from the University of Virginia’s Center for Politics.

It’s also possible that he will retire, although his heavy fundraising and public comments suggest that he’s running again,” said the latest report from analyst Geoffrey Skelley. Recent reports suggest Reid is going for his sixth term.

The analysis found that of all senators ever to seek a sixth term, Reid’s ratings and margin of victory in past races puts him on the endangered list.

The Crystal Ball – Harry Reid & The Senate Survivors:

In the Crystal Ball’s first batch of 2016 Senate ratings in December 2014, we identified Reid as probably the most vulnerable Democratic incumbent in this Senate cycle. While we rate the contest as Leans Democratic, the prospect of a possible challenge from popular Gov. Brian Sandoval (R-NV) could seriously endanger Reid’s future in Congress’ upper chamber, and Reid’s weak approval ratings also make him potentially vulnerable to other, less heralded Republicans. It’s also possible that he will retire, although his heavy fundraising and public comments suggest that he’s running again. That said, Reid just suffered significant injuries in an exercising accident, and his wife and daughter have also had recent illnesses.

Ask and You Shall Receive … Sen. Mary Landrieu (D-LA) Said Back in 2013, “Unelect” Me If You Don’t Like ObamaCare

HEY MARY, DON’T ASK FOR THINGS, THEY MIGHT COME TRUE …

Back on 2013, Sen. Mary Landrieu said the following about Obamacare and how to deal with it if you don’t like it, “We did not wake up one morning and declare this the law.”  Um, actually you did. Landrieu went on the say, “the people of the United States declared this through us as their representatives. Then came the money line that Mary Landrieu may want to take back, ”And if they don’t like this they can unelected us. Believe me they will have the chance because I am up for reelection right now.”  OK, YOU’RE GONE!!!

The good people of Louisiana took her advice and threw her out of office in a big way. Mary Landrieu lost by 12% to Republican Bill Cassidy in yesterday’s special Senate runoff election.   As The Gateway Pundit reminds us, other states did the same thing as 29 of the 58 Democrat/2 Independents Senators who voted for Obamacare in 2009 are no longer in office. Following the 2014 midterm elections the GOP now controls the US Senate, 54-46 after gaining a net 9 seats.

UPDATE I: Don’t feel alone former Sen. Landrieu, exactly half of the 60 senators who voted for Obama’s health-care overhaul on Christmas Eve 2009 will not be in the Senate in January.

 Nineteen of them retired or resigned, eight were defeated for re-election, and three died in office. In her concession speech Saturday night, Landrieu said that she and others “fought a good fight, and it’s not over yet, for health care” and that she was “glad we fought for it.” She didn’t specifically mention Obamacare.

Louisiana Senate Runoff Election: Republican Bill Cassidy Defeated Democratic Mary Landrieu

MAKE IT +9 FOR THE GOP …

9

The 2014 midterm elections have finally come to an end with today’s Louisiana Senate runoff election. Republican challenger Rep. Bill Cassidy has defeated incumbent Democrat Sen. Mary Landrieu to complete the 2014 midterm drubbing. The AP called the race for Cassidy after early returns showed him ahead of Landrieu by a wide margin.

Republican Rep. Bill Cassidy has defeated Democratic Sen. Mary Landrieu, denying her a fourth term and extending the GOP’s domination of the 2014 midterm elections that put Republicans in charge of Capitol Hill for the final two years of President Barack Obama’s tenure.

With Cassidy’s victory, Republicans will hold 54 seats when the Senate convenes in January, nine more than they have now. Republican victories in two Louisiana House districts Saturday – including the seat Cassidy now holds – ensure at least 246 seats, compared to 188 for Democrats, the largest GOP advantage since the Truman administration after World War II. An Arizona recount leaves one race still outstanding

Incumbent and 3 term Democratic Louisiana Sen. Mary Landrieu Defeated

Louisiana Secretary of State, Results for Election Date: 12/6/2014:

3423 of 4018 precincts reporting

Bill Cassidy (R):  58.84%   639877 votes
Mary L. Landrieu (D)  41.16%   447592 votes

UPDATE I: GOP Senate majority grows as Cassidy crushes Landrieu.

Rep. Bill Cassidy (R-La.) easily ousted incumbent Sen. Mary Landrieu (D-La.) in their Senate runoff on Saturday, capping off a dominating midterm election for Republicans.

The GOP’s victory in the final race of the 2014 cycle cements their nine-seat pickup in the upper chamber, giving them a 54 to 46 advantage over Democrats come January. Though Senate control wasn’t in the balance, Cassidy’s win is nonetheless an exclamation point on a midterm cycle that saw big gains for Republicans.

Polls in Louisiana closed at 9 p.m. EST, and the Associated Press called the race in favor of Cassidy at 9:30 pm with only 40 of the 4,018 precincts reporting and the Republican with a 64 percent to 36 percent lead.

UPDATE II: With all precincts reporting, he defeated Landrieu by just under 12 percentage points.
