How Dumb is Chris Cillizza?

We're already talking about 2014? Okay, then.

Chris Cilizza is dumb on purpose. How could he possibly know which ad is going to cause the country to send more obstructionist, crazy Tea Party Republicans to Congress? Cilizza forgets three things that negate everything he's saying.

One, we just saw what happens when you elect Republicans. The government shuts down and the economy takes a hit--all in the name of accomplishing nothing. Republicans cannot govern or lead. The American people have been made hip to this in ways which, demographically speaking, should spell disaster for the idea of accomplishing anything next year based on an ad. For the Republicans, they need a massive game changing event, not a marketing plan based on something as self-defeating as ending government spending.

Two, there was a thing called "You didn't build that" which should have ended the Obama presidency with the election of Mitt Romney. How'd that turn out?

Three, the American people actually like government spending. They like getting their Social Security and their other benefits. They have been manipulated into thinking that Democrats want to give everything away for nothing. As soon as you explain this to people, they tend to vote for the guy who makes it a part of his agenda to keep Grandma from eating catfood and moving back home.

How dumb can you get? Well, you can get Chris Cilizza kinda dumb, that's for sure.

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…
