If there were any doubt that Lou Dobbs isn't bonkers, he claims W. is a "radical liberal." (Also, what the fuck is a radical liberal? An extremist centrist?)

I can't remember where I read it (might have been Matty Y), but the observation is that conservatism can't fail, only be failed. Dubya was an exemplar conservative until he was unpopular and then he became a mutant liberal. Trump is a conservative as long as he's passing taxes, as soon as he washes out republican majorities he'll be an unorthodox lib. Republicans never change their core policies - low taxes for rich people - just the packaging it comes in.

Yup, that was a MY piece from the other day, suggesting that Captain Secret OpEd is laying the groundwork for conservatives disowning Trump. They really are like Marxists whose fallback position, over and over, is that communism hasn't really been tried, so, for reals, it's still a legit option no matter the horror show it keeps on proving to be. If you want to understand Republicans, look to Communists.

Silly liberals, when you threaten politicians financially, do it privately, not publicly. You offend Washington ethics.

Perhaps being a sexual predator was one of the things Trump liked about him.

There's something blandly creepy about Kavanaugh. Like, if you squeeze him too hard he'll leak wheat paste.

The Venn diagram between priests and Republican men is nearing perfect sync.

This gives Murkowski and Collins the opportunity to prove without any doubt that they are complete and utter shitbags.

Bingo. That's the exact kind of pasty complexion one only develops after decades of pedo sweat dripping down one's temples.

This does a good job of making Feinstein look as out of touch as she is as well.
Look, you have to establish context for these things. And I maintain that unless you appreciate the Fall of Constantinople, the Great Fire of London, and Mickey Mantle's fatalist alcoholism, live Freddy makes no sense. If you want to half-ass it, fine, go call Simon Schama to do the appendix.

...ugh...these people just suck! "What boy hasn't done this in high school?" Really??

I'm pretty certain I got through my 4 years of high school without sexually harassing or assaulting anyone...
