Didn't Obama warn Trump himself not to hire Flynn?  It was reported on as such.  Johnson and McCallum have one brain cell between them.

I wish I could give half a sh*t about what those assholes think. Actually I don't wish.

I listen to Republicans about as much as I listen to country music, which is to say never. Oh sure, I can hear you talking out the side of your mouth (since most of it is just crammed full of Koch dick) but I just won't listen to you.

I have one of those fire pit things they sell at Home Depot and a bunch of trees that drop a significant amount of combustible material....

So one day I build a fire in my pit, and my wife's friend and her 8 year old daughter are over.  I get this burning and it's hot like a fire is, and starts burning low like a fire does.

So chonker kid walks over to the pit, now burning low, and proceeds to attempt to lift the fire cover off the pit.  The metal cover over a burning fire.

Needless to say she got burned pretty good on her hand because that kid was dumber than a hammer.

Chonker Mom said to me:  Why didn't you tell her it was hot?

Even if this letter was never sent, shouldn't the Trump Administration have done a better vetting job regarding Flynn?

They either ignored the letter, or were incompetent with the vetting process. It is one or the other.

kbronsito: If Flynn did nothing wrong, why would Obama need to warn Trump about him?



I'm only half kidding when I see these types of statements are deliberately crafted for the purpose of increasing the rate of stroke and general anxiety disorders in Democrats.

Republicans don't suffer from Cognitive DIssonance.  I mean, specifically, it doesn't cause them any degree of stress or suffering to move seamlessly between half-truths that directly contradict each other.

But rational adults?  Hoo boy.  Conniptions.  Headaches.  Rage.

These farkers are doing this because you can measure in years the shortening of my farking life that reading this drivel has caused over the last 35 years of this endless administration.

It is also why I am coming around to support 'Have Pelosi talk some shiat about Trump every week or so' as a seriously viable political tactic in these absurd goddamn times.  Give those assholes something to raise their blood pressure a few points, and give me some momentary catharsis.

Chrissake.  I hate this timeline so much.  I've farking had it with all these BS Obamagate "theories", Branch Covidians, and the whole herd of right wing stupidity.  At this point, Biden could take his dick out and waggle it at a Ladies' Auxiliary meeting and I'd still vote for him.  He could, potentially, even shoot someone on 5th Avenue.  I'm just so sick of all this bullshiat.  Call me a hypocrite or whatever, I'm done.  Eat my ass, right-wingers and fake progressives.  If Biden wins, I'm buying a farking Trans Am and getting the fark out of red state hell.

Then you don't want to read any MAGAt discussions about the recently declassified email. Even with the words right in their face they just go on and on about how Obama trapped Flynn and yada yada yada.

So no, they don't have functioning memories or brains. They only mimic what they are told and that changes day by day, hour by hour.

Among the things I don't understand - do they also not have, like, Netflix?

Because the amount I have to give a shiat about something to get me off my couch and out into the streets is pretty damned high, since it has to contend with a pure dopamine-on-demand system via the internet.

Did it to vote, don't get me wrong, and marched (well, went to a rally) since I'm against kids in cages (though the appropriate response to kids in cages is armed insurrection and clearly I'm not a man of my convictions since I haven't done that).

But otherwise, even if for whatever reason I really wanted hair salons to open, or whatever, it wouldn't be enough to put on pants, arrange a babysitter, and drive farking downtown over.

Not trying to be a dick here. But take a look at this album cover. Just look at it.

Muscle car, AM/FM radio selector grill, speeding away from a city engulfed in a mushroom cloud...

And the cover doesn't betray the contents. Don't miss out Sturgill Simpson, patriot.

I'm trying.  I'm kidding (kind of) about the Trans Am, but I'm actively trying to find a job back in my home state.  If everything continues to go to shait, I at least want to be back with family.  The non-crazy ones anyway.  Some of my cousins have drank the covid conspiracy koolaid and they're too far gone.

Except it's calculated stupidity.  I've little doubt that most of the Republicans screaming OBAMAGATE know that it's all meaningless bullshiat.  But their strategy is whipping up the craziest parts of the base to hold the rest of the party in line to vote straight R in the fall.  So they count on Fox News to amplify the propaganda and their idiot base not to think.  Even a moderate analysis of the facts shows there is no "there" there.
