The one thing GOP candidates can't say will knock Trump out in first debate with a Democrat:

"You're an idiot. It's not just that you have bad ideas, you don't know what the fuck you are talking about. Running for office may SEEM like a reality TV show or professional wrestling, but actually governing requires some knowledge and, yes, even at least SOME experience doing it.

Running your own company where people have to obey your every whim or be fired is NOT the same as dealing Congress and foreign leaders who you can't fire if they disagree with you.

You're fun to watch on TV in an "Ow my balls!" kind of way, but you running for president is like a dog chasing a car--if you won you wouldn't know what the fuck to do."

The problem is, it will ONLY work if done this bluntly.

If the Democratic nominee is at all polite or wishy washy about it, it will have no effect on Trump or more importantly, people who don't follow issues and have limited reasoning ability.

Our person MUST come across as an authority putting a spoiled five year old asking to drive the car in his place or it will fail.

Should Debbie Wasserman Schultz resign as DNC chair?

It's been pretty obvious her thumb was on the scale for Hillary from the start, but that computer kerfuffle last weekend was dropping a house on the scale.

Progressive voters are the base of the Democratic Party, but we haven't had a progressive chair since Howard Dean.

We need someone in that position who more than just the fat cat donors can trust.

Should Debbie Wasserman Schultz resign?

Will few primary debates at low viewership times hurt nominee in November?

definition of socialism: admitting the government does some things better than the private sector

I realize that's setting a pretty low bar, but no Republican would directly admit that, and corporate Democrats would dance around it and try not to say it directly.

Why didn't Obama mention punishing those who profit from ISIS oil smuggling or states who fund them?

Dropping bombs is viscerally satisfying, but if you cut off their flow of money, their "threat" will quickly be reduced to that of a homeless guy with a plastic spork.
