If Daniels has a sex tape (with Dotard), would you watch it? Should we draw straws?

Someone's going to have to take one for the team and report back. Any volunteers?

Can we all agree that "Trump's Red Line" is not a thing?

1. Trump didn't suggest that the investigation into his finances/business was a "red line". He was asked that question by a reporter, and sort of said yes, in his meandering, noncommittal way. I loathe defending him (and actually I'm not), but let's stop pretending he drew this big bad red line all by himself and said "none shall pass!!".

2. More importantly, IT DOES NOT MATTER. Trump doesn't get to decide what Mueller investigates. So it is a non-issue.

The media manufactured this "red line". Let's call the media on their bullshit next time they bring it up. There's plenty of actual heinous fuckery going on all around this evil administration. Let's try and focus on that, shall we?

Why can't we have Jerry Brown for president?

https://www.wsj.com/articles/jerry-browns-legacy-a-6-1-billion-budget-surplus-in-california-1515624022?mod=trending_now_4

Yes, Jerry's old. He's 79 to tRump's 71 years old. Any opinions as to who's more mentally fit? Hell, most of the SCOTUS was around when people were still using morse code to communicate, yet no one seems to be clutching any pearls about that.

Yes, Jerry's from CA. And he's doing an excellent job turning around the world's 6th largest economy (AGAIN), thanks very much.
He's also got more experience than any governor in CA history.

He has no scandals. I know it seems like at least a decade since we've had a president with high ethics, but I did the math...it's barely been over a year. Wouldn't it be nice to have integrity again?

So yes, he's old and white. But let's be honest, for at least one more cycle, that's an important demographic, like it or not (and I do NOT). If Jerry ran for POTUS and picked a truly competent VP who's NOT from CA (maybe someone from Texas, like lovely, smart and brave Wendy Davis, or one of those nice Castro brothers perhaps?), no one could really even bitch about the "old" part. A little something for pretty much everybody.

I know many of us have our personal nominee dream team/wish list, but this ticket ticks a lot of boxes, and is still do-able. I just don't want we Dems to blow it again with someone too boring, vanilla, or so left-wing that it'll cause people to forget what evil traitorous fucks the R's have been.
