I'm relieved we have a limit

We've all been greatly concerned about our country sliding towards fascism. One of the the things we ask is, "When is it too far?"

This week, I feel like we're seeing it. "Too far. This isn't us."

We have work ahead, and we haven't defeated our worst impulses, but it feels like this week, we're saying strongly, loudly, and collectively, "Too far, you fuckwit!"

Even he seems cowed.

I'm just glad we can still do that. We're not that far gone. Yet.

the past few days, is one honest democratic figure saying fuck this, let's get those kids.

America goes cray. Thank Obama for being a smart man. I hope those who are under Trump recognize how fast this could flip. Stupid decisions. Everyone take some time for yourself, maybe a nap this weekend.

I think some republicans believe their own marketing. Don't.

According to 538, he's not losing any ground over this. The numbers are actually getting better for him. I'm afraid the truth is that almost 50% of Americans are a bunch of scared racists.
