38. TLP is not talking to Democrats to persuade us to vote against Trump & for Biden....

What would be the ever-loving point of that? Anyone to the left of “moderate” is already going to vote for Biden — and if they aren’t, their head is too far up you know where to hear the screaming.

The audience The Lincoln Project is aiming for is (1) Trump himself, because he is so easy to bait and it throws him off his game. I notice they are using his own trigger-words on him: weak, loser, laughingstock — all the stuff he projects on to others are his own deepest insecurities and fears. Hillary told us, remember? (2) Swing voters who are now sickened by what they see and need to have the way out pointed out to them. (3) Any lifelong Republican who has a remnant of conscience, sense, and/or understanding of the Constitution — but has devolved into voting for the GOP out of mere habit, and is now sickened by what they see and needs a way out.

The cultists and tribalists and white nationalists are a completely lost cause. Hillary was being gentle when she called them “a basket of deplorables.” Dems shouldn’t waste our time and money trying to win them over — The Lincoln Project certainly isn’t bothering.

I see their ads online, and they just get better and better. The one with the doctor who is a SEAL veteran was a punch to the gut for any American appalled by the news of Russia offering a bounty for the Taliban to kill American soldiers. When he named one of his bona fides as being “pro life” — that was not for me or you, that was for any Republican tuning in who needs a reason to listen to someone telling them to vote for Joe.

And if they want to claim some credit if Biden wins? Fine by me.
