Senator Harris landed the single most square punch to Biden's jaw of any Democrat, with her "that little girl was me" line. It was calculated to, quite frankly, knock him out of the race.

He wins the nomination, looks at that person, and says "that's my kind of Vice President".

That says a lot. First off, picture our current president acting that strong. But, second, think about how that confidence is going to project globally. Not a bully, just a guy who respects a smart fighter.

If they don't, they're fools.

At the end of the day, the biggest strength Joe Biden brings to the table is his compassion. Yeah, he's smart, but there have been a lot of smart people in D.C. who weren't worth a damn. Biden may trip over his own tongue a lot, but he also gives a damn.

Meanwhile, Kamala may have had her flaws, but she's never going to say she backed down from a fight.

Truth be told, I dig this team.

It plays better with the age issue that Biden has.

You can't say "BIDEN STRONK!" because Biden also old.
Since Harris also a woman, they go with the opposite of that: "HARRIS STRONK!"Harris strong, Biden compassionate.


Trump is only 2 years different in age than Biden, and in far worse shape both physically and mentally.

You really don't need to repeat this "Biden's age problem" GOP bullshiat for them.

Actions speak louder than words.

And I'm grateful to the Lincoln Project for their assistance in this fight so long as their actions continue to to match their words as they've done so far. Hopefully their long term goal of reforming the GOP in to a saner party - after making sure to push its head into a storm drain for a while - works out. I mean, I still won't vote for a Republican, but it will be better for the country to have one of our two viable political parties not literally be a criminally run-enterprise, with our nation's first mob boss POTUS at the head.

You know that's going to happen. Some Q dipshiat will make some dipshiat post that will get passed to Alex Jones that will make it to Roger Stone then Glen Beck. By next week some mouthpiece of the Russian state media that works for OANN will have a weeklong, hard-hitting investigation with dramatic reenactments worthy of Clutch Cargo. In 11 days Sean Hannity will "just ask questions." In 2 weeks time Trump will be calling in to Fox and Friends and he will spend 47 minutes rambling about why the Fake News Media won't talk about how Senator "kah-MA-la, what is that, was she in Indiana Jones?" won't reveal where she was born. How do we really know she grew up in Berkley? Berkley? She's practically a communist! DO WE WANT A COMMUNIST SO CLOSE TO THE WHITE HOUSE?!?" Steve Doocey sounds like he's gargling something in response.

I don't disagree that messaging on the Dem side is....less than spectacular.

I am pointing out that things that sound too good to be true usually are. That you should always question the motives of someone who would share water with you in a desert. That very few people do things out of the kindness of their hearts.

I agree that we should definitely accept their help. But, I'm advocating that we watch them and stab them in the back before they stab us in the back.

Considering that most of them aren't smart enough to see through Trump's obvious grifting in the first place, I am far from convinced they won't be fooled. Heck, I wouldn't trust them to be smart enough to pour piss out of a boot.

The target is the marginal Trump voters anyhow, the ones already having second thoughts. The way the message is portrayed, the language and tone, is in many respects more important than the actual message. They wouldn't be Trump voters in the first place if there wasn't a strong emotional aspect to their choice rather than reason. Play on their emotions and it doesn't matter what they think about the origins.

I wonder how much of their money from Democratic donors they spent on that: https://www.cnn.com/2020/07/15/​politic​s/lincoln-project-donors/index.html

And while you're over here explaining how the enemy of our enemy is our ally - but just for now! - do you think other Republicans haven't noticed TLP are allying with their enemy?: https://www.nationalreview.co​m/corner/​who-funds-the-lincoln-project-exactly-​whom-you-expect/

What's really going to help sway Republican voters to our side is to tell everyone what great things TLP are doing for Democrats, give them large Democratic donations, totally destroy their cred with Republican voters, and remind people we're going to sell them out after the election because we know they're trash and we always knew it.
