If you read what I actually wrote, I'm not whining about The Lincoln Project - who better to take on dishonest R's than those who know them best? I mostly whine about DINOs who sell out their principles to the highest bidder while paying lip service to actual D values (exemplified by FDR, certainly Truman, likely my fave president and many others).

I don't have any illusions about what the Lincoln Project represent, however and if their work of getting rid of Dump is successful, they will then of course turn to Dump-lite immediately after, represented by the likes of Rom-Nuts or similar. Ideally Moscow Mitch will be thrown in the gator pond with Dump along the way, however as besides being evil, MM actually knows how to play the game to not spite his own face, unlike "The Dealmaker" (who only knows how to successfully bankrupt casinos).

I would argue that TLP aren't 'sane' by my definition, but to your point, we all own a slightly different internal dictionary on that point. And I don't live in a fantasyland where there are no opposing viewpoints to my opinions and positions - some of those actually live in my same house

Again, not quibbling with TLP running even better attack ads against Dump than Biden or others may/will - the more the merrier. I just don't have any illusions why they are doing it vs. why i'd want them to be doing it - as you note, it's a question of motivation. If they want to spend money on it - by all means.

i also don't recall attacking Churchill or FDR in previous points either, i'll let the Irish take the former, they can do that far better than I, were I even motivated to do it. As to FDR, like his cousin a couple decades earlier - having been brought up with a silver spoon, he saw it for what it was and chose a different course to rectify the situation, he more directly than TR in many ways.

But again, no matter how far these may be allowed to go/get enacted in practice, the right motivation and principle has to actually *exist* in the first place to guide the course of action - otherwise you are just a politician in it for yourself, or worse, you are Dump and *all* you care about is yourself, to the exclusion of even your family, friends and employees, traits he's displayed ever more prominently the past 3+ years.
