Now, hold on a second. I can already tell some of y’alls assholes are clenching just based on my title alone. And I know full well that everyone and their brother’s got an opinion as to why Hillary Clinton lost, and Donald Trump won, the Presidential election, blah blah blah. But I think we all know the old ditty about opinions, and … so howabout we just skip it?
Instead, today, I’d like to opine on why the Democratic Party now holds the least power it’s held in… I dunno, forever? Maybe. And how a resurgence of real Blue Dogs- real ones, not the corporatist folk you saw go extinct around 2010- can save the Democratic party.
But first, I gotta tell you a big reason why I think things have gotten where they have- and it boils down to just one word. And that word, ladies and gentlemen, is “stigginit”.
Here, I will save you having to click on that link:
“What happened to our beautiful party … the one built on the Southern Strategy, whistled to in Philadelphia MS, powered by the hateful racist rhetoric of Lee Atwater, and dedicated to crushing the poor, women, people of color, and the elderly??? We must reclaim it from the racist misogynist so that we can get back to the noble task of granny-killing, poor-starving, and sick-kicking Ryanism!”
Today we are turning the megaphone over to Associate Justice Sonia Sotomayor.
Yesterday, the Supreme Court issued its decision in the case of Utah v Strieff.
The court ruled that the police officer who illegally stopped Edward Strieff could, by virtue of his having an unpaid traffic ticket, search him and arrest him when they discovered drugs on him and use that illegally obtained evidence to convict him.
And “movement conservatives” planning a third-party, featuring a conservative candidate to rally around in November, will find that there is actually no single candidate who appeals to the disparate factions that were cobbled together to create the modern Republican Party.
The Modern Republican Party’s Mask RemovedSparing you an image of the hideousness of the visage that lay beneath it.
Once again, the Fair and Balanced Media has declared that “Both Sides Do it” as they analyze the Trumpism phenomenon that is degrading American politics.
Margaret Chase Smith: ‘… I don’t want to see the Republican Party ride to political victory on the Four Horsemen of Calumny — Fear, Ignorance, Bigotry and Smear’. Sadly, there is no Margaret Chase Smith to bail your bony asses out this time, GOP. You drove all the Reasonable Republicans away.
