Threads about the rampant divisiveness ARE divisive...

... and threads about the divisiveness of the divisiveness are equally divisive.

And threads about the divisiveness of the divisive divisiveness are still divisive.

Shit. I can’t stop!

I have the perfect strategy!!! Pelosi should ...

... draft a HUGE tax cut bill for the wealthy, attaching a Confederate Monument Preservation Act and a mandatory concealed carry "firearm in every school child's pocket" declaration, and .... and ...

... and then attach Trump's impeachment articles to it!

The ensuing comedy would be gold, I tell you. Pure GOLD.

Many Trump voters are NOT a lost cause...

... I live in a very red state. I know many personally. Sure. There are a lot of dicks who support him. He's a dick, so dicks are drawn to him. And dicks tend to be loud and do dickish things that draw attention to their dickishness. I don't personally know a lot of these people, but I see them and have some interaction with them. They are there, no doubt.

But in addition to the dicks, there are a lot of people who were taken in by the dick's carnival show. They were swept up by the crazy, the anti-Clinton drum beat, and the Russian social media strategy. These people are not dicks. And the more he and his administration act like dicks, the more distance they put between themselves and the circus. But they're quiet about it. They don't talk politics around the water cooler.

We have to STOP shitting on republican voters. Shit on Trump. Shit on his administration. Shit on his policies. All fair game. But there is ZERO political capital to be gained from shitting on republican voters generally and in a personal way. If they are true supporters, they'll wear your criticism as a badge of honor anyway. If they are having second thoughts (as I know many are), your dickishness will simply drive them more securely into the arms of the republicans in 2020. I'd rather they were offered an alternative. Or at least encouraged to stay home.

Treating them like shit (and I've done it some myself) is strategically stupid. My dad use to tell me to try not to be stupid. If he were still here, I think he'd remind me of that.









Comrades - you must stop silly resistance to re-fighting again the primary...

Trust me on this. I see your Underground Democrat has a rule about this, yes? Disregard this rule. It is good to fight and hold grudge, is it not? It is good to demand allegiance to party. It is also good to demand that party change.

Socialist Squirrel supporters were disloyal to Establishment Moose. This cannot be forgotten. And, Moose supporters treated Squirrel unfairly. Moose must be hated forever.

Some say Squirrel and Moose both want what is good for other animals in forest. This is lie. Fake news. If you are Squirrel, you must never trust Moose. If you are Moose, you cannot depend on Squirrel.

Moose and Squirrel must never, NEVER work together.

Have nice day.

I think the entire MSM is missing the point...

This might be a little tinfoiley - but All the questions about what and when Trump knew about Flynn's actions become irrelevant when you start to see this thing as Trump working for Flynn, not the other way around.

Someone on MSNBC said a little while ago that Flynn was one of the first people willing to meet with Trump in 2015 - when everyone else thought he was a joke.

Obviously, Flynn sought out Trump. He was selected for this political gambit because he already had his own deep ties to Russia and it's oligarchs, and he was stupid enough to do it. Flynn was his handler. Trump knew only what Flynn told him.

Anyone else want to try on this hat?

Little help re Maddow's show last night.

She did a short segment on a recent poll of Dems and pugs support of the Syrian bombing by Trump vs support for Obama's suggestion of bombing in 2013. Very revealing. Showed that Dem support was essentially unchanged (38% v 37%) while pugs went from 22% to 86% in favor. That's all you need to conclusively prove that 64% of republicans are idiots who only see donkeys and elephants. The parties are the same my ass!

I didn't catch the name of the poll, but want the graphic to torment my republican friends this weekend. Anyone know where I can find it? Thanks in advance.

Spicer wears flag pin upside down...

... and refuses to fix it when it's pointed out to him...

Clearly a distress signal...

From Cosmo

White House press secretary Sean Spicer arrived at the Friday press conference wearing an upside-down American flag pin on his lapel.

Fortunately for Spicer, the White House press corps brought it to his attention.

“Your pin’s upside-down,” Fox News’s John Roberts said.

“John Roberts, always helping with the fashion tips,” Spicer responded. However, that didn't get Spicer to fix the issue.

“It’s still upside-down,” another reporter had to remind him.

Of course, that didn't stop the internet from taking Spicer to task - and asking him if the upside down flag was secretly a cry for help.

And they did. The tweets are priceless and worth the click.

This was Friday. If it's already been posted, lock me up...
