"I like big butts and I cannot lie." -- Lindsay Graham
Once in a while, your dog runs out there and barks. It's harmless and it makes him feel better. I'm sure that Moscow Mitch will give a short tug on the leash to remind him who is the owner.
There is nothing sad here. linds is just making sure he holds his senate position for life.
Hell, take away her bullets and guns, them's part of demon science too!
God, they're starting to sound like German politicians when Hitler was taking over, it's making me queasy.
He's compromised. The Russians clearly have something on him.
I think *someone* has dirt on all of them - the mango menace included. I have a hard time believing the ghost of Mar-a-lardo has anything upstairs but cobwebs, self-congratulations, and thoughts about certain unfortunate blondes that would make p0rnhub blush.
We don't know what it all meansSure we do. DEMS IN DISARRAY!
The mind boggles. Does he not realize how insane he sounds? They're all trying to out-crazy each other over there.
I often wonder what is it that would make someone support someone so obviously unfit for public office as TFG. Here we see the authoritarian impulse in full bloom. Lindsey, and others like him in the conservative hivemind, apparently have some need to be led around by the nose by somebody, anybody, no matter how demented and twisted. This need is so strong that it overrides all common sense and judgement these people have. Even assuming that politicians have become politicians because of certain psychological factors, this authoritarian drive/need seems to account for some of the worst behaviour that we see in these clowns. And, of course, this also applies to all the people who vote for/follow TFG.
The running theory is blackmail. TFG and Graham went golfing and almost immediately he was team Trump.
An adrift ramora is a sad, pathetic fish. Its only hope is to reattach itself to its host, otherwise it will die.
Sure seems that way. Such an abrupt about face. I wonder if McCain knew he was compromised.
Graham may be a "sad" character; a groveling shithead and all that, but this country is in a pile of trouble and I see no way towards keeping the Fascists from fully taking over all 3 branches and doing whatever the fuck they want to this country. No matter how cleverly we can espouse on lefty sites such as these.
Bill Clinton blew it when he got blown in the Oval office, plus being a right of center prez; Gore and the Dem party blew it by not causing a huge stink in 2000 (and also Lieberman. WTF?); HRC blew it by being the one to run in '16 because get real we all new she was not a great candidate (qualifications notwithstanding, because when did qualifications matter?); Bernie and Biden blew it by not letting someone with some measure of dynamism (cough/Warren/cough) get the nomination; Many voting Dems blew it by voting for Jill Fucking Stein, basically out of spite for "the system"; Obama blew it by not doing WAY more shit in his first two years; Biden's blown it with Gorsuch; the two of them are blowing it by slow-walking/talking every goddamn thing that needs to get done. And the Democratic party has blown for decades it by not focusing on down-ballot races... down to even school boards, like, ever.Blaming Democrats? Damn right I am. Because who do have the power to change? Us, or them?We get the government we deserve.
This isn't about being led around by any particular part of their anatomy. This is about Power and Money. Period. Anyone espousing trumpist shit is raising record amounts of $$, and the rethug voters are eating their shit up with a big, giant spoon.. They won't understand how fascist it all is until they have to start paying $$ to drive their ATVs in National Parks.
