It's kind of interesting to see Sessions walk that tightrope of defending himself from presidential slander and full throatedly supporting the president that is slandering him.

Sessions knows that Trump is a childish moron, but damned if he isn't going to embrace that moron with all of his might.

More like an F-Troop reenactment.

I really don't get Sessions here.  He continues, for reasons beyond comprehension, to hitch his star to Trump.  Only to have to get into a hissy fit when Trump spurns him (which Sessions had to know was coming).

Politics aside, no one should vote for Sessions for the simple reason that he's an idiot and a lousy strategist.

He could have run on his own (dubious) merits.  Alabama knows him.  There is no need to play up his support of and relation to Trump.

The reason is clear: he knows he can't win that primary election if he doesn't kiss Trump's ass at every opportunity. Fealty to Trump is the only thing Republicans want.

I thought the 'political analyst' comments were the most interesting part of that story.  (also I expected to hear him say something about his time working on the pappy o'daniel campaign.)

Political analyst Steve Flowers believes the war of words helps sessions.
"Sessions reputations is one of being a choir boy, eagle scout, mama's boy and it makes him stronger to fight back," said Flowers.
In the end Flowers says the president's endorsement carries a lot of weight.
"I think the advantage accrues to Tuberville, trump is so popular in the state the only thing they know is, trump doesn't like sessions," said Flowers.

so now in 'conservative world'... 'choir boy' and 'eagle scout' are negative synonyms for 'mama's boy'... whipped, weak, pussy... so following the rule of law and doing the right thing is now a negative?

Problem is that Alabama loves Trump more than they did Sessions, and since Sessions "betrayed" Trump, he is persona non gratia to AL.If Sessions goes on the offensive regarding Trump, he digs his own grave in his primary to Tuberville, who is pretty much brown nosing Trump at this point.

Alabama will go for Trump in November for sure, but Sessions' chances won't be as sure - a right wing AL voter may simply vote for Trump and leave the slot for senate open, which is in effect a half vote for Jones.

My favorite part about that photo is that the sunlight is shining through Session's translucent elf ears and making the hemoglobin glow,
/the haircut is another story

I think he can't quite process honestly.  He behaved according to the rules, he did everything he legally could for his lord and master.  But the Cheeto doesn't care about laws or oaths or obligations, only sticking your neck out to the extent the law allows is sloth and treason and disloyalty in Trump's head.

It's a bit ironic that the HUAC founding chairman was from Texas...

maumau the flakcatcher: Both parties? No shiat? I didn't know that.


Wired link.

Yeah, the media seems to have memoryholed that one, the best it can.  Can't imagine why.  Cannnn't... immmaaggine.... why.  (Though realistically it's just because we've had an unrelenting avalanche of catastrafark scandals that should have ended this presidency before it even got started.)

DNC content was used to influence the election.  We still don't know who has / who knows whatever was found in the RNC.  This gets mentioned pretty regularly 'round here in any threads about Graham's quick 180* after a golf outing... but it's the _entire_ t(R)eason party.

Also fun:  Every one of the 50 states' election infrastructures has been penetrated.  The message has been "but, they didn't do anything. Just looked around!"  Outside of Hollywood movies, has anyone ever broken into a bank and just looked around?  Anyone ever broken into a house (though, given some state tech, the front door was not just unlocked but standing open, presumably) and just flipped through the silver cabinet and left?

But *no*one* wants to talk about that.

VOTE in 2020.  And then use all your might to hope it gets counted.

Good times. Gooooood times.

This is probably the reason... but... it's easy to forget that *both* the DNC and RNC server infrastructures were compromised... and only the DNC contents were released.  Who the hell knows who knows who-the-hell-knows-what exactly was found in the form of kompromat, money laundering, and more.

Diogenes: Over a Democratic incumbent who doesn't have a solid lock on his seat?  In Alabama?

I understand your point.  But in this case I'm not so sure that fealty is a necessity.  And Sessions isn't just toeing the line - his ads and statements are pure cultish devotion.


Sessions hasn't won the Republican primary yet. He's in a runoff election with a MAGAt. He isn't polling well and really could lose the primary. But in a sense you're right. Both GOP contenders seem like trash and because it's AL they will likely take back the seat.
