Union Carpenter From PA-18: Trump makes white men "look like Jagoffs".




I'm pessimistically optimistic about how this will turn out.

The numbers simply don't work out from a short time ago. The Monmouth polls have me optimistic. They show a clear trend going into today. They showed a similar trend for Trump in PA. I believe that trend is real I just don't trust the final numbers released. They just don't jive with what my eyes have seen in the last two years. That is what has me pessimistic. I'm glad I'm not alone as it seems just about everyone is hedging their bets.

Where this race stands is huge, even if we lose a close one. Yet another major shot across the bow of Republicans. If we win, their battleship is heading for the bottom. The rhetoric they will employee is going to be a bit crazy. Like cornered badgers lashing out. Except badgers are smarter and not cowards.

1. He's very observant.

But even white men vary widely. I know this.

8. It's used at times in Philly. Pennsylvania-Philly, Pittsburgh and a whole lot of Alabama in between.

But, from a NJ perspective, I must revise what Trump is, he's a rat bastard!

3. I looked the word up on the internet "jag-off" and you know what

I equally blame "white" men as well.

4. Trump's repeated faceplants can only help, I think.

And if turn-out is key, as we're repeatedly told, some of these militantly white Trumpers may not bother.

9. Did you say badgers?

We ain't got no badgers. We don't need no badgers. I don't have to show you any stinking badgers!

On a serious note, bravo to Mr. Nicola. We need more guys like him stating the obvious out loud like that.

11. What does Jagoff mean?

Jagoff or jag-off is an American English derogatory slang term from Pittsburghese meaning a person who is stupid or inept.[1] It is most prominent in the Greater Pittsburgh area.[2][3] The Dictionary of American Regional English defines the term as a "general term of disparagement".[4] It is an archetypical Pittsburgh word, conjuring feelings of delight among Pittsburgh expatriates.
