Giggling madly? Achieved! Why? Oh, this happened:

Stop! Our sides can’t take it.

Why did Ed Jany drop out of the Florida race?

Snicker. Yep, he was taking a page from Obama’s book and offering up a composite bio. And did we mention he doesn’t even live in the district in which he was running?

On the plus side, Mr. Jany did provide some excellent schadenfreude.

Oops! But the tears are delicious.

Check out the flashback:


Coming soon?

And an exit schadenfreudelicious clip to sum it up:

        washing her hair…! hahahahahahahahahahahahahaha

        That’ll take years.

      • FreedomRecon

        You’re saying she intentionally styles it that way?

        • nickdqwk

          Heard she brushes it with an egg-beater!

          • nickdqwk

            Only her hair dresser knows for sure!

        • Humanary Stew

          I don’t think styling is the correct word. I am a guy though so what do I know?

        • Donald-Now2x/Sarc-w/0calories

          Yes, she gets out of the shower, and before she dries off, she sticks her big toe in an electric socket, to get that just permed look.

  • Republicanvet

    From the Tampa Bay article: “Jany switched from being a Republican to Democrat on Oct. 2 out of frustration with the government shutdown, he said.”

    What is it with Florida and opportunistic hacks?

    • Mark81150 Never/Trump/Hillary

      There is a lot about his resume that doesn’t add up… bronze star,… which he refused to discuss, but not one combat deployment?.. You don’t rise up the ranks in the officer corp without even one, during 13 years of war.. not one?…. a green beret, and he left that to be a Marine?… a cop,.. accidently shot by another cop, in and out of active duty, Army and Marines.. yet high fitness reports and glowing praise by former commanding officers.. and there I doubt the Tampa Bay paper, because I really doubt they looked for any who did not like him, they simply took the names he gave them..

      As a once airman, and a man who worked with the public for 30 years, you get a feel for the personality of folks.. this to me… smells.. as does his excuse for leaving the GOP.. the shutdown?… really?.. so you completely dump your principles, to join the opposite party, because of the fight to stop Obamacare?.. and what possessed him to leave the GOP to support a socialist grab at power like o-care?

      I smell talented rank opportunistic no principles but pad the resume attention w h o r e that wanted to run for Congress. And thought he saw a quick and easy chance to poache a seat, like Christi, he’ll say whatever he has to to get a seat….. the dems saw his military resume and drooled,… they don’t get many with that kind of background in the democrat party.. so they never checked to even see if he lived there…… or if his degrees were real, or if he was a serial liar…. no way the Marines told him to go to a .diploma mill with no accreditation, .. just no way..

      in short, a talented chameleon who seeks power through any means he can.. no way he served all those years with spec ops training and never saw one combat deployment without pulling strings to av
      oid them.. just no way.. any other vet with that background was volunteering for them… but not this guy…

      He’s almost a Walter Mitty character….. and the dems bought it.

      • Kelly Walters

        It isn’t unusual to get a bronze star for maybe working on a project or some such. It’s when it has a V for valor that you know it was rewarded for combat or an act of bravery. My husband has a bronze star, but without the V for valor. He got it for his work in Iraq. I agree that it is odd that he never once made a deployment, but it could have something to do with his MOS/Job

        • TomJB

          Yes, unfortunately, the bronze star, which was once earned by soldiers for actions during which they were killed, is now given out to any officer who deploys to combat. Even if they don’t leave the FOB, its what they get.

          Conversely, God forbid a PFC gets put in for a bronze star with a V, 9 times out of 10 it will be downgraded out of principle due to rank.

  • Ghee!

    Me and my joke writers can’t come up with anything funnier than what the subject matter already has provided.

    They failed to vet him………..but Dems don’t make a habit of lying, right?

    • Mark81150 Never/Trump/Hillary

      Do they ever vett them?… usually, they just depend on the press to suppress any negatives,… it must have been pretty bad for them to turn on him..

  • tops116 ✓Quipper

    Oh, it’s much worse than that. According to Hot Air, Democrats missed the filing deadline. They also had previously forced out the only other potential candidate, Manuel Sykes, who lives in the district and is fairly well-known. Sykes is also black, so I’m sure our local liberals will just love to know that the “enlightened party” forced out a black guy in favor of a white guy.

    Mmm-mmm. Schadenfreude tastes so good.

    • Stephen L. Hall #NonquamTrump

      Democrats keeping a black man from running for office . . . I guess old habits really do die hard.

      • The_Kat ✓vilified

        But did they do it wearing white sheets and pointy hats this time?

      • TomJB

        Ugh, I made the mistake of reading some of the comments there. They don’t cut the kool-aid with much sugar, do they?

        • Kristine ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

          I didn’t even glance below the article. Wasn’t going to chance it.

    • Linda

      Probably because they didn’t think he stood much of a chance in Republand.

      • Republicanvet

        Oh, so the left thought the rayyyciss Republicans would not have voted for him?

        • Linda

          He’s a minister; the other guy was a veteran.

          • Ogrrre

            “… the other guy was allegedly a veteran.” But, the media were too in the Democrat Party’s pocket to actually do any background check on the fraud. But, hey, he is the Democrats’ fraud, so do not do any background checking on him.

      • TomJB

        If they didn’t think a D had much of a chance, the DCCC wouldn’t be targeting it. Its a low-black % district but 3% could have made all the difference. Can’t have a black candidate taking that away from the “approved” D, now, can they?

      • Jerry Camp

        In all the US, in dem-dominated districts with a white majority, there’s not a single black democrat representative in Congress. Not one. There are and have been black republican representatives elected to Congress from majority-white, republican districts. Funny how that works, huh?

    • gotroy22

      Those racist Democrats!

    • nc ✓s & balances

      Can you imagine if a Repub did this to ANYONE, much less a black pastor? Here is the message:
      Pinellas County’s Democratic chairman left a bluntly worded voicemail telling well-known St. Petersburg pastor Manuel Sykes he would be “persona non grata” if he followed through with plans to run for Congress.

      Sykes was the only announced Democratic candidate in Pinellas County’s 13th Congressional District, but he said Wednesday he has now decided not to run after all.

      In the voicemail, Mark Hanisee said party officials had spoken to the offices of two key Democrats, former congressional candidate Alex Sink and St. Petersburg Mayor Rick Kriseman.

      “Neither one of them are endorsing you, nor is the (Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee). They have another candidate,” Hanisee said. He added, “You better hold off, or, like I told you Sunday night, you are going to be persona non grata. Take that to the bank. That’s telling you the gospel truth. You’re going to be getting a call from Rick Kriseman, if you haven’t already, telling you to back off. Have a nice weekend.”

      • CatHerder ✓fire! ✓fire!


        • nc ✓s & balances

          I especially liked the “gospel truth” part. To a black pastor.

    • kwijino

      Oh, but Jany’s familia es from Brazil, so that makes it all right. See, they had one of them there Latinos.

      I love this in the article though: “Jany said his [unaccredited diploma mill] Madison degree “was good enough” for the Harvard University Kennedy School of Government, where he attended the senior executives fellows program in 2013.” Since Harvard also gave Obama a law degree, what exactly are the standards at Harvard anyway?

      But yeh, I can’t begin to imagine the field day the media would have had that been a Republican telling a minority not to run because it wasn’t a black district. But it fits with the actual modus operandi of Democrats.

      • E Quilibrate

        Harvard X (Obama – Standards) = No Standards. SOP.

  • Right Wired ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

    Wait, the DCCC actually vets candidates? How do they ‘splain Obama?

    • TugboatPhil

      When did they need a candidate? Haven’t they won races with dead candidates being voted in by dead voters before?

      • CatHerder ✓fire! ✓fire!

        Friggin’ zombies!

    • ricoliv

      Some putz told the DNC there was this black guy in Chicago who was clean and only spoke with a Negro accent when he needed to. What could go wrong?

    • TomJB

      They vet whether or not they can disrupt the opposition vetting long enough to get past election day.

  • j p✓ʳᵉᶠʳᶦᵉᵈ

    What? Lying and cheating are OK, It is only that he was unskilled at the duck and cover and redirect and gloss over and blame others tactics. Do they have a test for that?

  • LegalizeShemp

    Just when you think Democrats have sunk as low as people can go, you find them playing handball off the curb.

  • HerculesLoadmaster

    I don’t understand why democrats are still attempting to run candidates that have some sort of experience that enables them to be a good congressional leaders. They gave up that requirement years ago.

  • Linda

    This isn’t the first Democrat (a former Repub, btw) or the last that will be a disappointment. And, it’s not like the Repubs haven’t had their fair share. Remember, we’re talking politics. Yes, the party should have vetted him better.

    I live in a different district, but am across the bay from his district so I hear quite a bit on the news about that district. It’s long been a Republican bastion so it’s probably highly unlikely that a Demo would have had much of a chance anyway.

  • Exodus2011

    another sign that under the surface the DEMs are teetering…..

    I hope that Benghazi TRUTH, fully revealed will send them into the political ABYSS, along with their heroes the CORRUPT and LAWLESS LIARS Obama and Killary

    This is just one example of the GOP winning elections “out of weakness”.

    It’s too bad he didn’t hang around longer and suck up some more of the Dem’s money for the local economy before dropping out.

    As Elie Halevy pointed out, those who preach from collectivism’s altar claim to believe in two things which are very different and quite contradictory: freedom and organization.
