What? Evan, surely you're not saying that you're not feeling the DEANMENTUM?

Yup, noting unites a country like some rich kid with no accomplishments under his designer belt who wants to undercut the President and leader of his own party, just because he thinks he knows more than somebody who's been in D.C. for about fifty years.

OHJB wouldn't even waste a good quip on this little snot.

Let's turn him over to CornPop.

Bumpin' uglies with Steve Doocy.

You had to go there, huh?

Come on! The man is trying to find himself. And being awfully generous to the Democratic Party in the meantime. Otherwise he knows he'd be too intimidating to people like Joe Biden, Joe Neguse, Jamie Raskin, AOC, Jasmine Crockett, Adam Schiff, Maxwell Frost, Brian Schact, Katie Porter, Prince Harry, and Colin Allred!

There must be a lot of money in being Republicans’ Favorite Democrat because so many people are trying out for the job

So, friends, who do we think is paying ol' Dean to do all this? I guess he could be as egotistical and dumb as he sounds, but this whole clown show would make a lot more sense if he was bought and paid for. Wouldn't it?

Maybe it's something really simple like a ridiculous ROI for laundering a shitload of Russian money so they can continue to live the good life in the civilized parts of Europe despite sanctions.

I imagine most of the major contenders know they can grift some money and live the high life for a few before reality check.

I'm sure he's getting paid off somehow. However, I think he could be absolutely this arrogant and dumb - but smart enough to realize the RW is where the money is at for so little effort. Say the right words and these idiots will give you everything

Ta, Evan. Dean Dean the Loser Machine can get fucked and forgotten.

For some reason Dean Phillips sounds and looks like a Republican candidate, not a Democratic one.

Is this him being deliberate?

Dean who?

Say, about running for president to build your brand, ask Marianne Whats-er-name about how well that works.

The things is, whatever "brand" he is building with this asinine stunt will make him toxic to Democrats going forward (at least those that know who the fuck he is in the first place). I wouldn't be surprised if he ends up losing his seat in the next couple of years (hopefully in a primary to another Dem that keeps the seat). After that, he is free to fuck off and join the Sinema party because she is also egotistical, toxic to Democrats, and going to be out of Congress. Maybe they can intern at a winery together or something.

That shouldn't be too hard. She was right next to him at the loser's table in NH.

You know, behind Other.

Apologies if this has been reported before but as a Minnesotan of a certain age, I do know the Phillips brand. That is the vodka that those of us under age people drank sometimes (often) to excess when having the "happening" parties. We grew up and learned to drink alcohol that didn't taste like moonshine.

And yes, libez again moonshine.
