I'm not that worried about Democratic chances in 2020. Trump has soiled the Republican brand

Iím not that worried about Republican chances in 2020 even if Donnie resigns, gets dumped, or flat-lines before Primary Season. Iím old enough to remember the 1976 elections and remember just how tainted the Republican brand still was after Watergate and the Nixon pardon.

Letís do some deep-breathing and relax. Trump has been in office far longer into his term than Tricky Dick was into his second term when he resigned, and the ordure from Trumpís dealings is still flowing and getting into the news. Todayís Republican Party is in worse shape than it was back then. Father Pence is far more involved with this administrationís grubby dealings than Ford was in Nixonís. The Republicans are far more racist than they were back then (Remember SenatorEdward Brooke?), and I doubt the MAGA Magoos would turn out enough to vote for someone of Haleyís complexion into the White House.

I Bet Tucker's Too Clueless To See Why Pacific Life Yanked

their advertising. It isnít just nebulous good public relations, itís because Tucker's comments are a threat to their bottom line.

I wonder if Tucker has a clue that people of other races and other ethnicities buy insurance and other financial products? Or if Pacific Life has glommed onto the fact that they need a wider customer base than bigoted white folks? Or that Pacific Life has noted that regardless of skin color, gender, or ethnicity, money is green? Judging by his response, Iíd say he hasnít.

I can think of yet another reason not to advertise with people purveying racism. They look stupid. And looking stupid is definitely bad for business.
