The Politics Thread

Recommended Posts


In 2016, when Trump was actively seeking the presidency, he applied for a loan and was rejected Deutche Bank.

Northam wasn't the only candidate that clearly wasn't properly vetted.

While I understand the decision to push him out, given what he did and his fumbling response, I am increasingly worried at what will happen the next time the media and the GOP come after a Democrat they hate. When they come for Justin Fairfax, will any of the party fight his corner?

Well, it's not like Fairfax hasn't been left out there alone to fight his own battles before.  I suspect, he wouldn't expect much help from anyone based on what he experienced recently.

Why does James Comey think we need his opinion on this? Or anything?

 

My guess: Comey plans to run for political office down the road.

He couldn't even win a James Comey lookalike contest.

Agree, lol.

 

It's unfortunate the GOP has staged another, successful hit on a Democrat's career.  But, like I said before, Northam made the situation worse by backing down from his earlier apology.  He should have simply apologized for the photos, emphasized that he was a changed man who disavows all forms of racism, and then left it at that.

When you dig up clips from "Gimme a Break!" or any '80s sitcom, you know we have plunged into the depths.

Say what you will, but they got it right!

 

I was born in the early '80s, and I was raised to never, ever, ever say the n-word. And despite gangsta rap hitting its peak when I hit junior high/HS, I still never said the word. Kids today shrug it off which I don't get. If I ever have a kid and I hear even a variation of that out of their mouth or on their phone, they're grounded for a month.

They did.  But, dammit, we need '80s sitcoms now to remind us how to be a decent human being?  We're really at that point?

Is this really the new standard by defining if someone is a racist. I doubt even if a photo of Trump showed up with him in a white hood would the media train acknowledge it. Now the barometer by the likes of Chuckles Todd is "do you know what's in their heart" as to why someone should not be called a racist. I am glad Sherrod Brown put him in his place. And by the way Brown so far is the only white male politician on the stump so to speak that has managed to address these idiocies in the media I have heard time and time again without anger, but just in a matter of fact "factual" way. In the process he makes these people look more and more like the fools they are.

Chuck Todd has such an awful voice for television. So whiny and weaseling. This man is a failure in every way. Only in our craven media market and on the especially craven NBC would he have a career.

 

Sadly it seems like Bernie's sycophants already have the pitchforks out for Sherrod Brown because he doesn't want to give out rainbows and fairy promises about Medicare.
