WTF Would It Take ?!!

I just forced myself to watch R. Maddow's piece "We Hope it's Going to be Very Big" (link below).

She walks down the list of all the policy gifts The Asset has provided Putin, and speculates on what others might be forthcoming.

I grew up under the real fear of the USSR, and Reagan's "Trust, Yet Verify" approach to dealing with the "Evil Empire." Watching this shit unfolding now, I'm quite horrified, and wonder WTF happened to the Republican Party ?!!

WTF would it take to give us that "HAVE YOU NO SENSE OF HUMAN DECENCY?!" moment from the GOP ?

Seriously, if His Anusface ordered the Department of the Treasury to begin making $100 billion monthly payments to Moscow, WOULD THAT DO IT ?!!

The fact I'm genuinely not sure, just terrifies me.

1. There is no such point

There is nothing like this in US history. We have to look to other countries' history with authoritarian populist leaders. The only thing that turns them around is enough people outside the populist's base banding together and turning back the tide.

2. it would take him not giving them

what he's been giving them...namely tax cuts, judges, and the tears of liberals.

That last one quite frankly is all they need. He could shoot someone on the street as he's said, as long as they think the liberals got owned or whatever, they will be behind him.

Time to stop waiting for them to be reasonable, and start focusing on us. There are more of us after all.
