Yes, and if we stopped testing teenagers for pregnancy

we would see very little of that as well, right?

Jon Stewart was correct... Fuckface von Clownstick!

Why does our side complicate things? Again!

This “Defund the police” messaging is aggravating as hell! Of course it doesn’t mean eliminate police departments. But we’ve shot ourselves in the foot because now our folks have to either spend a lot of time explaining what it really means. Why couldn’t we say something like Reform the Police, or Clean Up the Police, or Get Racists out of the Police?

I mean the damn tRumpers may have shit for policy positions, but you don’t need five minutes to explain their slogans! If they put out a new slogan that simply says “We are Assholes!” They can move on to the next propaganda bullshit without stopping to explain.

Obviously the Defund tag is not going to get us any additional votes by itself. So when we go into “here is what it really means...” the audience starts hearing blah, blah, blah.

And despite how nice the polls are looking right now, about five months out, we are going to need those additional votes!

My freshman Poli-Sci professor, George Peek, on the first day

of class related what he called the two most important truisms of American Government and Politics:

1) The Constitution and the Law is whatever the Supreme Court says it is; and

2) Perception is much more important in electoral politics than reality.

As I think about this some 41 years later, he was right. And that is still accurate today.
