    The plan is not about blue vs red, it's about good vs evil.
    Long after Trump’s plan has led to disaster, you’ll be pffting him and assuring us the next Republican president will do great.

    Wow. Talk about living in complete denial.
    Trump did everything he could to try to bait Hillary Clinton into vulgar and undignified behavior like his. He called her all kinds of names, led masses of foaming-at-the-mouth imbeciles in “lock her up” chants, brought up her husband’s infidelities constantly, gave her husband’s accusers front row seats at one of the debates to try to rattle her, etc. None of it worked. She remained a model of grace. She avoided calling him names, using profanity in her public speeches, etc. You may be in denial about that, but we remember.

    There's a difference between criticism and a pretentious prick.
    I suspect you’re onto something about your embarrassment in the face of liberal behavior. If conservatives were more moral and self aware, then the greatly superior behavior of liberals would shame them into trying to better themselves. But that’s not in their natures. Instead, that half-suppressed awareness of their own moral and intellectual inferiority embarrasses conservatives, causing them to think of the gulf between them and the liberals not in terms of their own personal squalor, but rather In terms of a supposed pretentiousness on the part of liberals. They hate liberals for much the same reason that Homer Simpson hates Ned Flanders.

    That’s probably part of why they perceive Trump —a genuinely pathological liar— as ‘Honest.” He may be more willing to lie than any major politician in our history, but he has a kind of honesty in terms of letting it all hang out — allowing himself to be as unguarded in his vices as the conservatives wish they could be. They can respect that. At least he doesn’t make them feel bad about themselves, the way better people do.

    Funny you should say that. My language has really deteriorated lately. The same can be said of my friends.

    Of course the right can say any lie they wish on the board, but let a lefty say a bad word you are gonna get it!

    I am not going to put up with the lying,S*** any more!

    Yes,we are angry at what is being done to our Country by an ignorant,ill mannered President and the blanking Cult like Congress that is protecting him! I have had enough of that smirking old Turtle Leader bragging about how good this has been for Republicans! Blank him and the horse he race in on! He is a disgrace to my country and Congress!

    That goes for those who voted for him,too!

    Thanks,Arkady. I knew you would make a great addition here!

    I feel so much better now!
    Thanks from BoiseBo

    As you’ll recall, the American people wanted Hillary Clinton to be president. She won the popular vote by a margin of about three million votes. But people in the less educated states didn’t want her, and they have disproportionate weighting in the electoral college.

    Regardless, that’s not really relevant to the bolded language. Whatever the American people thought of Clinton, she was clearly very dignified and restrained during the campaign. For example, try to find examples of her engaging in grade-school name-calling of her opponents the way Trump did with all his major ones (“Little Marco Rubio,” “Crooked Hillary,” etc.) Try to find her engaging in petty feuds on Twitter with celebs, or using profane language in public comments, or urging her followers to use violence against protesters, etc.

    Screw that. We just got through an election where most of the halfwit yahoos who voted for Trump said they did so because he didn’t talk like a politician. Trump spoke right from his dispeptic gut, insulting absolutely everyone with whom he had an issue, including grade-school name calling of his own party mates. His messaging was a steady stream of vulgarity and personal slurs. And now we’re told by the concern trolls that those hate-loving Trumpsters will be turned off by hearing hard truths in hard terms from the left.

    Fuck Trump, fuck his voters, and fuck the concern trolls. We just had an election where the Democrat was an absolute model of dignity and restraint, while her opponent was the most vile candidate in the history of American presidential campaigns, backed by the most vile supporters. Where did babying the feelings of those morons get us? I’m done with it. Maybe if we stop being so politic with our rhetoric, we can finally light a fire under the non-voters, whose policy preferences mostly match ours, but who are too bored by a polite and restrained campaign to bother actually showing up on Election Day. Trump shook up the world by being a dishonest asshole. Maybe being honest assholes will counter that.
    What’s with the “general warning” header?

    The article can only be written by a total scumbag. What a sad human being. It's also telling that anyone would celebrate this horrible example of how to move forward.
    And your posts improve the board? Hah!

    This is just a taste of what Democrats will do now that your monster lowered the threshold

    That simpering, clutching your pears in a post is not working. The right is getting exactly what they deserve!.
