Conservatives are doubling down

Could have stopped there and it would have been pretty much dead-on.  Alternateiy, one could add "on the X" afterwards, where X equals "derp," or "dumb."

It seems that there was a time where we actually had conservatives like William F. Buckley who could carry on a rational conversation without immediately spiraling into conspiracy land and/or turning into a drooling guns n' guts whackjob.  I might not agree with them, but I could actually listen to what they had to say without my hackles immediately raising, and every once in a while they could actually make a decent point.  Now every time one of their spokesmorons opens their mouth I feel like I've been mugged of a few IQ points

Id doesn't matter whether or not the "authors" of this kind of thing really believe it.  What's chilling is that this is a rich industry that is supported wholesale by people who do.

Just. Read. The. Comments.

No seriously, this is not a thing is it?  I mean really, even Americans are not this stupid.

Are they?

/read three lines into the article, couldn't decide if it was satire and realized even it is, someone out there things it's a thing.

Funny thing is that he/she/it believes that lying, bigotry, being deliberately obtuse, sneering and "sticking it to the libs" strengthens his argument and brings people over to his/her/its way of thinking.

People have hurled accusations that he/she/it is a paid shill, but I can only assume that if the GOP is paying for that content they're paying in Zimbabwean dollars or in Marshmallow Peeps.  Anything with any more inherent value than that and they're getting ripped off.

I didnt know what the problem was.
I watched the video.

THIS is what people are complaining about?
1) I got zero problem with this.
2) HOLY FARK - look at them stand there. Doing the thing with their free hand "JUST RIGHT"

Does anyone see any disrespect here?
Does anyone see anything other service and honor?

And if you do, could you please explain it to me?
Seriously, I would like to know what and why.

It take special skill to hold an umbrella correctly. Gotta leave it to the experts.

 It's a Marine in full-dress uniform, with a fine unbent umbrella, which is nevertheless not correct under the official - male, rigid - Marine Corps regulations.

One-handed like typing detected.

the president let a white man hold an umbrella over him while he gave a speech in the rain. republicans are upset about this. that's the only explanation, because countless other presidents have done the same thing with nary a peep from the GOP. the only difference is the current POTUS' skin color.

that's umbrellagate

As a retired Marine, I should note that protecting the POTUS is part of the job, and holding an umbrella for this worthless piece of shiat is entirely within the parameters of said duty, and definitely not the worst collateral duty afforded to the the junior Marines...
