If there's one thing that might save us, it's that Trump chooses yes-men over competent operators

Too late.

Has anyone seen Moscow Mitch lately?

Probably picking out a nice Dacha outside of Moscow.

Yeah. Imagine how much more money they could grift if Donny could live for 5 minutes without being the undisputed God-Emperor.....

Trump can't commit an impeachment offence until McConnell decides he's not worth keeping around.

The goal here is to constantly be ramping up the lying and the crimes.

Part of it is to able to say "can you believe what they're accusing us of?" But most of it is to crush the very concept of truth.

If they can say things and then say they never said those things, maybe nothing's true.

Oh, he wrote an op-ed in the Post saying Turkey deal bad, but didn't use Trump's name. He just wrote it so he can point to it later.

Elections only have consequences when they work in your favor.  If they don't, those elections are shams and don't accurately reflect the intentions of he people.

I rescued a very grumpy Red-Eared Slider from the middle of the road today. What more do you want?

"The problem with the 'we do it all the time' logic is that all the wheeling and dealing of diplomacy is normally meant to advance U.S. national interests, not the President's personal political interests," he wrote. "And that's what makes this impeachable conduct."

Nice of Mulvaney to give us a heads up that there are more crimes like this to find.

It's easy to be a yes man. You nod your head and agree with everything they say, and fluff them whenever. But what if the Y-Man has their own agenda, something they're passing off as being from the mouth of the boss?

If it makes the boss look good, he'll pretend it is his idea. If he says it wasn't, it could compromise his authority.

Who's the yes-man now, dog

"Elections have consequence " is such an abysmally stupid point. Like, you're saying "we made that terrible decision you warned us would be a disaster, so now you have no choice but to sit through this ceaseless national nightmare as collective punishment for our incredibly poor judgement that, once again to be clear, you warned us about," and I'm not crystal clear on how that's supposed to teach me any meaningful lesson except that a third of this country is apparently too stupid and spiteful to ever have any hope of redemption. Ha. Showed me, I guess.

I dunno. Loses some of its rhetorical punch when it's brazenly being used to justify blatant corruption.

It's not being used to justifyit, you dunce. It's being used to point out that this was an obvious consequence of the 2016 presidential election.

It was a statement that the WH chief of staff used, verbatim, while he was talking about how things the president has done and will do that look like abuse of the office and self dealing are just fine and will continue because fark you, America.

It's still not justification; it's "you can't do anything about it".

Regardless, it's still a reminder to take elections seriously, because they have serious consequences.

To your first point, granted.

To your second, yes, speaking generally, but I still think that when a spokesman for the agent of the shiatty consequences says it, it's nothing more than a thin rationalization and attempt to deflect and project inexcusable behavior onto the electorate, and amounts to "vote for a venal, bigoted moran, get idiotic hate and graft," which WE farkING KNOW.
