I am fucking amazed that there are people still defending Northam after that press conference.

Was it the "Don't put too much shoe polish on your face, its hard to get off." that kept you on board?

3. They learned that Democrats will fold like a cheap suit after Franken.

 

They figured out a successful strategy to remove Democrats from office without using the electoral process.

6. As long as Justin Fairfax

As long as Justin Fairfax unequivocally denies the charges and Ms. Tyson remains silent he is entitled to the presumption of innocence...

10. A far right wing news outlet is suggesting Justin Fairfax sexually assaulted a woman in 2004.

I would have never brought it here.

I saw the list on another thread about leaders whoíve spoken out about this Northam mess.

Have either of the Obamas spoken, or are they just staying out of it?

4. His reaction demonstrated, to me, that he still wasn't taking it seriously enough

He was amused, and did a quick look to apparently see where he should do it when his wife cut him off.

He'll be quitting today, as he should have done days ago. What an arrogant fool he is.

Severely jet lagged lol, but nothing a guinness wont put right!

Somehow I feel deeply peaceful not to be in the same country as the apricot asshat.

who was endorsed by Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren. Instead they went with kinda DINO Northam. Oh well ....

29. Boy it's a good thing we avoided THAT disaster, right?

 

Otherwise we'd be having problems in Virginia.



Honestly based off of the people still defending him on here, I wouldn't be surprised if this fact has something to do with the dead-enders still going down with the ship. The last thing any of them want to do is admit that their slavish devotion to centrism failed in any way.

divisionary fence you are trying to portray

30. Typical MM bullshit. Monday morning quarter backing. The guy who told us that a vote for Gore was

vote for bush along with telling us that Romney was going to beat Obama, and tried to interject his divisionary bullshit into the women's march until Ashley Judd shut him up very quickly

Let's see MM run for a public office in Michigan, and how well he does.

35. Gee, he got one right. He isn't talking about 2012 when he said "I think people should start to

practice the words "President Romney"

He was also wrong about the 2018 midterms

Now predicting that Trump will win a second term. I am sure if that prediction turns out against him it will be conveniently forgotten by him.

MM is no prophet, and except for a few exceptional movies from the past, he is trying to do everything to get attention, since his current projects are not getting much traction

33. There was a picture

that kind of casts doubt on whether it was Northam in the yearbook photo.

It was in a Gateway Pundit article, which was linked from a comment after a WaPo article. (I won't link to a rightwing source, like the GP.)

It shows a guy in a pic wearing plaid pants that may be the same pants on the blackface guy in the yearbook photo.

DH looked at it, and says the pants aren't the same, but I think the difference could be in the quality of the picture.

Regardless, Northam admitted to wearing blackface, there is the heinous nickname, and a number of other examples of racist behavior. He needs to go, but I'm not so sure it's him in the yearbook photo.

37. Democrats are being played for fools once again.

When Northam resigns, theyíll go gunning for Fairfax. This is a coordinated effort by anti-abortion extremists. Donít believe me? Just watch. Within a month (or short time) of Northamís resignation, something will be dug up from Fairfaxís past. There will calls to resign - especially from Democrats.

The issue isnít how evil blackface is. Itís that this is a soft coup by extremists who will stop at no cost to get in power. Proceed at your own peril - this is more than a racist yearbook picture and career-ending press conference.
