    People being "fans" of politicians, judges, and political operatives is insane. They should make sacrifices for you.

    Clinton would've probably won the election if she didn't go around collecting 100k a speech to Wall Street firms after stepping down as Secretary of State.

    But the whole DNC bent backwards to defend that shit and everything the Clintons did. Because why?

    I disagree with this fundamentally— not the logic but the notion that social media users should get the benefit of the audience without the cost ie engagement. But I don’t care to litigate it tbh.

    It's because they don't understand religion, you don't tell them they're wrong, you tell them something crazier that fits your agenda

    But that's immoral

    Welcome to religion leadership 101

    They're mobilizing the PR campaign for her already. Some Stanford law professor was on NPR earlier talking about what a nice person she is literally seconds after saying he didn't know her personally. He said some other stuff about his opinion of her as a professional, which may as well be Chinese to me, but that first part killed me

    Example: Me age 10 making fun of my (mean) Catholic Grandmother for having hundreds angel figurines in her house to my neighbor friend who came from a hardcore Southern Baptist family.

    Next week, his little sister (7) has told my little sister (6) that she is going to Hell because she has that papist blood.

    My sister cried her eyes out when she was told that cause she was 6. And the little bitch who told her still came over, and even brought her big sister over to try on my sister's clothes.

    But my sister never took shit off anyone since for being an atheist. She punched a guy in the face for grabbing her ass in under her seat 7th grade in front of the teacher.

    Overall, a great thing to happen to her.

    I tend to agree with Ezra Klein's take on the Supreme Court.



    We need to have this fight about the Court, and Democrats need to decide if they want to govern the country or be sent to gulags.

    1. “Religious bigotry is low T”
    2. The very religious are the biggest religious bigots
    3. You are therefore calling the very religious low t
    4. That makes you a religious bigot
    5. You are therefore, by your own reasoning, low t

    Criticizing liberals for being harsh on religion when all democratic leaders are super religious and Donald trump is the Republican president seems weird.

    This tweet makes no sense. Conway has always been a federalist society stooge and nobody has ever made a secret of that. “Never Trump” isn’t a strict set of policy ideals. It’s a cluster of Republicans that have decided they can’t vote for Trump for any number of reasons. Trump’s Supreme Court picks were not the driving force behind that choice for the overwhelming majority of them. They’re not Democrats and haven’t ever claimed to be.

    That and it was several months after Kavanaugh was confirmed before he wrote the op-ed about Whittaker’s appointment as AG which was his first “never trump” move.
