Wow. A politician as repugnant as trump

Congratulations Roy Moore! You have reached a standard of sleaziness and cynicism that can only be measured against the heights of vileness reached by the slimeball in the White House. The attacks on your accusers and maintaining complete denial when the right thing (the Christian thing according to your own stated beliefs) would be to admit your mistakes, apologize and step away. But, like trump, you are more than willing, even eager, to denigrate the office you aspire to and rot our democracy - all the while using religion and bigotry to get you out of this self-created disaster.

You sir, along with your idol, are the two biggest pieces of shit ever to walk on our political landscape. So a big congratulations to you. And while we're at it, a big pat on the back to those republican leaders who have had the courage to come out against a pedophile. I can just imagine how proud Lincoln, Lodge and Eisenhower would be of you and their party if they could see what has happened to it.

Question for Maine DUers

Is there any chance Collins could become an independent and vote to caucus with the Dems in 2019?

Insurance industry job losses from single payer not as large as you would expect

Plus Conyers' bill has a provision to help them transition. The overall numbers on how many workers lose or change jobs every year surprised me: 42 percent.
From the article: "Although it is hard to come up with a precise estimate, the likely number of jobs made redundant by the switch is a few hundred thousand over the course of a few years, in a country where 1.6 million people are dismissed from their jobs every single month."

Mussolini from the balcony

Turned on the tv this morning to see our national embarrassment embarrassing our nation once again and immediately turned the channel. I'll leave it to others to watch and comment but I can't help but think - as I do almost daily - that the world must be thinking WTF America, what have you done to us. I could only tell them "I ask my fellow Americans who voted for him the same question on a daily basis."

Even with a script his hand gestures and psychosis sends us back to 1930s Italy.

Katy Tur

On Rachel. At first it made me so angry I couldn't see straight with the campaign clips from this miserable POS we have as president attacking Katy Tur over and over and over again (why do we have to see so many clips of the shitgibbon bully doing this?). Then she came on with Rachel and showed so much class and courage in the face of drumpf and his awful supporters by overlooking the treatment and continued to do her job. That's what she told Rachel: "Journalists here and in Russia have to continue to do their job."

Just an impressive person and journalist.

Zuckerberg has to answer for this

Apparently, Facebook was going above and beyond in helping the trump campaign digital operations.

Hong: "Without Facebook we wouldn't have won."

Chased a MAGAT from the dog park today

A former history prof I talk to and this older bearded white guy were talking history and she was making comparisons between drumpf and Harding when I chimed in that at least Harding wasn't crazy. Now if a MAGAT (MAGA Trumpist) is a red hat wearer so as to be obvious I stay away from them and talking politics generally but I assumed this guy wasn't one. Wrong. He became pissed and started talking about how drumpf had fixed the economy and the VA and I started hitting him - with the facts.

Usually I don't bother since they are like paranoid schizophrenics who think the CIA is after them so does no good to use facts. But I was already in it with him and kept at it. He got up, left in a huff mumbling words and left the park. Then I sat down with the professor and she filled me in on some relevant history (apparently Aristophanes' play The Knights is applicable to today) and we had a nice long talk while the dogs played. It was a good day at the dog park.

On Rachel: Dossier is a roadmap

Talking now about Glenn Simpson's testimony to Congress about the trump dossier. For those who haven't read it I would recommend doing so because when I did, my thought was exactly the same: this is a blueprint for the whole Russia/collusion/cultivation of trump by Putin story.

O'Heir: "Poisonous addiction to the suicidal myth" of the Confederacy

Great takedown using Grant's words of today's whites mythologizing the Civil War by the always insightful Andrew O'Heir.

God Damn I love Ana Navarro

I don't care if she is a Republican her fiery takedown of dump and her fellow repubs just now on CNN was the best I've seen by anyone today. Steve Schmidt wasn't bad either on Rachel.
