    careful now, the most racist thing in the world you can do is to point out to a racist that the racist stuff they do is racist.

    can't understand why black people don't vote
    They will if they feel they are represented. Just being democrat (or republican) doesn't do it.

    We kind of know why they don't vote in many states that fall into the red column, or are leaning that way: Voter suppression efforts. The ridiculous notion that somehow people are voting fraudulently, so they demand ID's, then close the DMWs in places where most of the Democrat votes lie, purge the voter roles when someone doesn't include an apostrophe or a comma in the right place while registering. Don't send enough voting machines to certain high-Dem precincts.

    After a while, when the same right-wing nutjobs keep getting elected, a segment of the electorate figures it's no use voting if the deck is continually stacked against you.

    Wouldn't it be easier to just re-install the poll tax.

    remember, if you hear a conservative whining about what someone else is doing wrong, it is usually projection.

    i think this can fit in the definition of "hoisted upon one's own petard"

    Well, I think we have to truly find out if there is a market and a need for independent, non-Trumpian conservative voices. Of course, after the Weekly Standard went under, the narrative was that this was a sign that there was no market for “Never Trump” conservative thinking and writing, and maybe that’s true.


    But we’re going to test that proposition, because we actually do think that there are people on the right who want to hear a different point of view. I’m willing to acknowledge that this is a leap of faith. I’m willing to gamble that there’s an intelligent, literate audience for thoughtful, nontribal conservatism. Maybe I’m wrong, but we’re going to find out one way or the other.

    I saw a poll that really tickled me. The dreaded Nancy Pelosi has a better approval level than any elected GOPer, period.

    That's really got to be a bitter pill for them to swallow.

    I despise Pelosi. Iím glad she has bested Trump and I hope she continues until his whiney little butt scuttles back to Mirror Lake.

    Interesting comparison between the GOP of the 80s versus 2012.
