Sarah Palin is a Hatemonger


Before anyone starts wringing their hands over this, let's acknowledge two things:

One, Martin Bashir should have been fired for having no class or dignity and no common sense as a broadcaster for his commentary. He demonstrated a complete and utter lack of self-awareness and showed his employer that he cannot be trusted on the air. MSNBC should fire him and Alec Baldwin on the same day and run video of a security guard booting them in the ass as their personal effects clatter to the ground. And then MSNBC should hire some broadcasters.

Two, Sarah Palin is a hatemonger. Every time you publicize this woman's irrelevant screechings, you accord her more power and influence than she really has. Let her have her little thing on Facebook and consider it safe to ignore her for the rest of time. She will never run for office and win anything significant ever again and she is running a scam on people who want to cough up money to hear her say things that flatter their own self-hatred. Palin profits through the public act of hatemongering. She delivers hate, people give her cash. When she runs out of people to hate, she runs out of money. She and her husband don't even want to be Americans. I would suspect that her next flim-flam will be Alaskan independence. Or another book about how liberals want to eat Santa Claus and serve reindeer to the devil.

This whole thing is not a "systematic problem." It's a management problem. You need to have someone who can hire actual broadcasters and you need to have a gatekeeper who finally admits what people already know--Sarah Palin is a nothingburger.

Democrats Are Trying to Save America

Never forget that Trump is a bum. A cheating, lying, stealing bum. He's the kind of bum that gives actual bums (who are usually down on their luck and doing the best they can) a bad name. He's a bum on purpose, you see, and that's the kind of bum that the American people want to see thrown out of office. He's never going to be presidential because he's just a goddamned bum, you see.

But, sometimes, I think the media is worse:
As Washington braces for this week’s expected vote to impeach President Donald Trump, partisan battle lines hardened on Sunday, with Democrats defending impeachment even if Trump isn’t removed from office and Republicans denouncing the integrity of the constitutional process.The Democratic-controlled House planned to vote Wednesday on two articles of impeachment against the Republican president, and the decision whether to make Trump the third U.S. president in history to be impeached was expected to play out along party lines. There is some d…

Spoiler Alert

Tulsi Gabbard is going to work very, very hard to re-elect Trump:
Tulsi Gabbard has been slowly edging toward leaving the Democratic Party and, it now seems more likely than not, launching a spoiler candidacy to peel disaffected left-wing votes away from the Democrats. Her “present” vote on impeachment, followed by a disavowal of what she called the “zero-sum mind-set the two political parties have trapped America in,” sets the stage for Gabbard to play the role of 2020’s Jill Stein.Left-wing anti-anti-Trumpism played an important role in the bizarre 2016 outcome.Die-hard Bernie activists, fired up with anger at the release of DNC emails stolen by Russians that purportedly showed the party had rigged the primary, demonstrated against the party outside its convention hall and tried to drown out the speakers inside with boos. Stein attacked Hillary Clinton from the left, then audaciously staged a grift-y fundraising scheme supposedly to hold recounts in the states she had labored to flip…

Trump Will Burn it All to the Ground

It is difficult to see how the latest war in the Middle East will end. I don't have any answers, and, really, no one else does, either.

Here's what people should pay attention to--this happened just as evidence of Trump's orders to the Department of Defense landed on the front page. This happened after the major holidays and just as we are beginning the 2020 primary season in earnest on the Democratic side (the GOP has decided to prevent another Pat Buchanan moment, circa 1992, from happening).

Every life that is lost is because of Trump's decisions.

Every penny that this increases the price of gas is a tax on the poor and allows people who regularly have access to Trump to maximize their profits.

Every American traveling overseas is less safe.

Everyone who cares about peace will be shouted down and marginalized because that is the media's job.

Every attempt to hold Trump accountable will probably fail because the GOP is complicit in all of his crimes.

Everyone ch…
