"They said mean things about me after I got people tear gassed so I could take a photo op with an upside down Bible. THEY'RE THE REAL MEANIES!"

Never mind, it's just the Post's token Trumphumper,  Marc A. Thiessen who I'm sure isn't being paid well by a Super PAC to use his adequate writing ability to embarrass himself on the national stage once or twice a week.

"Trump also says he has no love for the Confederacy. "I'm against it. It was my opponent. I was born in New York, I'm against it. . . . I am a Yankee."

I suddenly have an urge to paint "YANKEE GO HOME" in front of Mar-a-Lago.

Came here for this, leaving happily.

As you walked in, Trump just happened to be reading, outloud, polls that show him winning.

Sounds like he's been taking whining queues from fark's right wing cowards.

"It's so unfair of those liberals to tell me we shouldn't plow all the non aryans into prison-work camps"

Piss off and die.

His "outstanding speech" at Mount Rushmore? These people really DO live in their own reality, don't they?

aleister_greynight: As you walked in, Trump just happened to be reading, outloud, polls that show him winning.

Pennsylvania tied. Florida, up one. Wisconsin, up one. Texas, up five. Arizona, Trump 49, Biden 45; North Carolina, Trump up three.


His staff gives him fake polling results because he throws a tantrum when they tell him the truth, that he is losing. Knowing Trump, he then exaggerates the fake polls further. Even so he thinks he is up by only 5 in Texas.

Let's think about that. If he is up by only 5 in Texas there is no way he is ahead in most of those other states he mentioned. Texas is supposed to be a gimme for Republicans.

What you said, plus it wasn't an accident that he was reading them outloud, was what I was trying for.

...why? If nothing else, Marc illustrates the deluded buffoonery that's overtaken what's considered "reasoned conservative thought" lately, packed with unabashed fawning & delusional perceptions of reality clearly not shared even by the subjects themselves.

Buckley be damned - we have Thiessen now! This guy's practically writing Democratic campaign copy.

But abject racism is ok...?
Northerners hating southerners from the war? Ok 180 years ago.
But now it can only be racist to embrace the values endorsed by the confederacy.
And to justify the exploitation of racist ideas by exhibiting symbols of their program?

Don, your followers are idiots, but the rest of us are disappointed because you think we are stupid as well.

Go president somewhere else.

If you had a newspaper that wanted to simultaneously give equal time to the "conservative viewpoint," but really didn't want to go down the "both sides are bad" route, you simply give the craziest, sack-gobblingest sycophantic chucklefark a salary, a desk, and an attaboy every time he disgorges something like this op-ed piece.

Marc's doing what Jeff wants him to do, apparently.

Funny you mention Buckley: Thiessen had his throat full of WFB choad when the student body at Vassar protested Buckley's invite to speak in the late 80s

Am I not a generous poster? Am I not magnanimous?! ;) Political payday loan - looks generous, but the interest is brutal and comes due far too soon.

Partially standing. He had a death grip on the podium.

So did he ask Trump why he admits he doesn't read his daily briefing? You know, that thing Marc Thiessen falsely implied about Obama in multiple articles in 2012?

Fark user imageView Full Size


Obama read it daily but only had on his schedule that he called someone in to review the contents/ask questions several times a week. Trump explicitly says he never reads it, it's rarely on his calendar, and now it is clear that they intentionally do not review all of the contents. Would Thiessen say this undermines Trump's case for reelection if he doesn't take international issues seriously?

The fact that we as a society have given conservatives so many passes that this is what they've devolved to is nothing to crow about.

The overton window demands that any moderate or soft-right opinion be balanced out by an absolute far right cult-member's grim incantations.
