“I have joined the political arena so that the powerful can no longer beat up on people who cannot defend themselves,” he said. “Nobody knows the system better than me -- which is why I alone can fix it.”

An excerpt from The Cheese Doodle's speech at last week's RNC. There are millions of Republican voters who eat this bullshit up. Hopefully there aren't enough to put this fucking asshole in the White House.

They's Sad

So what do Bernie's fans want? The Onion has an idea.

These are supposed to be intelligent people. We'll find out in a few months if they are or not.

I guess it's official.

"I could've chosen somebody really fantastic, but instead, I picked this worthless piece of shit. Fuck you, America."

If there was a list of the top 10,000 conservatives who should be sentenced to permanent exile in backwater hellholes far from the United States, Mike Pence would be on it.

Obama Cure

We can add a new item to add to the list of Stupid Shit You Believe if You're a Real Republican:

Other items on the list:
  • The Texas voter ID requirements are essential to eliminate massive fraud.
  • Texas abortion laws are necessary to protect the health of pregnant women.
  • Massive tax cuts for wealthy people will result in higher-paying jobs for everyone else.
  • Deregulation of businesses will result in higher-paying jobs for everyone else.
  • Eliminating corporate liability through "tort reform" will result in higher-paying jobs for everyone else.
  • The secret to solving all our health care problems: Eliminate medical malpractice lawsuits.
  • The best way to reduce gun violence: more people carrying more guns in more places.
  • Turning essential public services over to profit-oriented corporations will result in vastly improved services at a small fraction of the current cost.
  • Conservative Christians are the most persecuted people in America.
  • Writing checks to politicians equals free speech.
There are more, but you get the idea.

Garrison Keillor on Consequences

Tonight I read an editorial page column in the Chronicle, written by Garrison Keillor on the topic of Donald Trump. It closes with this appraisal:

" [Trump's reaction to] -- the Orlando tragedy is one more clue that this election is different from any other. If Mitt Romney or John McCain had been elected president, you might be disappointed, but you wouldn't fear for the fate of the Republic. This time, the Republican Party is nominating a man who resides in the dark depths. He is a thug and he doesn't bother to hide it. The only greatness he knows about is himself.

So the country is put to a historic test. If the man is not defeated, then we are not the country we imagine we are. All of the trillions spent on education was a waste. The churches should close up shop. The nation that elects this man president is not a civilized society. The gentleman is not airing out his fingernail polish, he is not showing off his wedding ring; he is making an obscene gesture. Ignore it at your peril."

This is the best summary of the problem I've read so far. I wish I'd written it first.
