That was very well done. Too bad Republican voters will never see it.

And to clarify, I'm glad everyone else will see it. That's some good shiat right there. I just wish it would penetrate the bubble, too.

The Dems really seemed to use their time wisely on this. Well done. Cons just went FUBAR.

Even if they did they would ignore the obvious conclusion and decided that anything that contradicts their moronic world view is fake news

Answer is 'no' to a Deep State conspiracy, but what about a Shallow State conspiracy, huh?
 
2018-07-13 02:31:06 AM  
I wish he had gone full Scottish Twitter: "Mr. Strzok, Trump's Twitter followers have variously described him as a 'cockwomble', an 'incomprehensible jizztrumpet', and a 'weaselheaded farknugget'. Did you orchestrate this as any part of a Deep State conspiracy?"
 
2018-07-13 02:31:08 AM  
And people think Twitter and Original are pointless.

That, seriously, just made my month.

Off to find out how to donate to his reelection campaign.  I wish donations from people who aren't eligible to vote for someone weren't legal, but as long as they are, I can send him what I would have spent on a six pack.

Thanks, Subby!

only a smile was cracked on camera, but holy damn hell i was rolling.  that was great and i hope it empowers more in the future when these frivolous bullpoopy endeavors are treated to the big boy table of real life.

Its fine for sitting congresscritters to call bullshiat as they did today but I fear the message this sends to Democrat candidates challenging sitting Republicans in November. Going exclusively negative won't get Republican voters to consider switching their allegiance, and it certain won't motivate them to stay home on election day.

Yeah have to win by getting out the vote, mudslinging barely works against that cult

I, too, am concerned.


pfft. Treating vacuous shiat like this hearing as a roast of the disingenuous twats who called for it is exactly the right approach.  Trying to be serious and measured while the GOP frantically attempts to cloud the water like a norovirised hippo just helps them out; it lets them & their media organs pretend there is something legit to be investigated.

fark these traitorous clowns.  Mock them up and down their stupid farking clown faces for every second of your allotted time if they're going to waste our money on nonsense like this.

We ain't gonna win by being p*ssies. P*ssies can stay home and reap the consequences.

If we want to put an end to this f*cking nonsense then we need to group together those of us willing to throw down. I'm sick and tired of this "polite" rhetoric. F*ck that.

It really depends on the district. There's a finite number of cultists but, in many districts, a lot of lazy Democrats and non-voters to pick up. Raskin's questioning may be preaching to the choir, but it's giving voice to Democrats like me who are incandescently angry about how Trump and congressional Republicans are "governing". It may get Republicans to the polls, but it also drives Democratic turnout, campaign donations and political involvement.

It doesn't work directly, but sipping tea while the other side is shotgunning bud light and smashing the empties over the heads of small children is not the approach either.

Omg don't call them cultists, that's mean and then they definitely won't consider voting Democrat!

I bought the "Banana Republicans" book in 2004.

It is 18 years old now.

Change some names and it could have been written today.

2018-07-13 03:20:10 AM  
More to the point, you need to get people angry to get them to the voting booth. Talking nice to appease the mouth breathers is f*cking stupid.

F*ck that.

Going negative on Trump will motivate Democrats to finally get off their asses and vote. It's a winning strategy.

I wonder if this will serve to remind the Republicans how bad sunlight really is for their treasonous conspiracy. Every single one of them that participated in this freaks how looks equal parts traitor and fool.

The display by Democrats wasn't to try to convert or convince Republicans.
