here's a list of the most compelling, logical arguments for republican policies of the last 20 years

if we lie about what al gore said, we can make it look like he claimed to have actually built the internet.

al gore sighs.

al gore wears earth tones.

al gore talks about lockboxes too much.

obama. kenya. obama. kenya. obama. kenya.

hillary used emails.

benghazi happened and hillary didn't scream "radical islamic terrorism" in the first 30 minutes.

warren lied about being part native american.

warren is only part native american.

alexandria ocasio-cortex danced in college.




isn't it interesting that they're really, really long on ad homimen attacks and extremely short on actual, substantive, policy arguments?

gee, i wonder why?

3. well, to be fair, another one of their more policy-like arguments is

7. yes, it's funny when they try to be all "intellectual". my favorite still is the laffer curve

which boils down to:

"100% is too high of a tax rate because then nobody would earn any money.
therefore, we should cut my tax rate even though i am already earning money and my tax rate isn't even close to 100%.

it's especially fun because it's usually depicted as a graph illustrating the tax rate at which government tax revenue is maximized, which is a policy goal of... no one.

4. And AOC wore a nice blazer her first day on the Hill! Obama ate Swiss cheese on cheesesteaks, wore a

tan suit, said "arugula," used Dijon mustard, and spoke to schoolchildren at the start of the school year.

Michelle wore sleeveless dresses, planted a vegetable garden, encouraged kids to exercise and to eat less sugar and drink more water, and wore a sweater to meet the Queen.

And they once bumped fists in public!
