I have said from the start that at the end of the day, these people are dyed in the wool republicans and grifters gonna grift.

Kellyanne and George have effectively separated for a few months, from all public information.

Both are clearly aiming for public relevance post-DJT, but it does appear that their marriage is on the rocks, to put it mildly, and their daughter has made the family dysfunction painfully evident.

I hope they're suffering.

So they stole their donors money and divided it up among themselves?

While turning a blind eye to and/or suppressing sexual harassment complaints?

Well, end of the day they are Republicans.

The enemy of my enemy is a dick, and all that.

"Call Group to Shut Down, Fight Trumpism In Other Ways"

Put in a McDonald's at mar a logo and post a billboard of Obama and Biden across the street.

That will speed things along.

There is a certain humor, and appreciation, in the child actually being at least partially responsible for the parents' marital problems. But I'm sure she's not troubled by it, not with the fan mail and thank you cards she undoubtedly gets.

 Pfft, I prefered the couch. So did the dog. Despite his 120lbs. he generated less heat and motion. We're still great friends but she had a habit of rolling on top of me, which is great when you're in the mood but not great when you have to be awake in two hours. And she didn't roll on for sex; she slept there.

Doggo and I had an understanding and it was awesome. Deep, plush couch that we just sank into. Best sleep of my life and yeah she took it personally.

I wonder if Steve Schmidt's gig on MSNBC as one of the "token republicans" is coming to an end if it turns out it was just a front to scam a bunch of money from the rubes.

I think in this case if the data was ever made public you might learn a large number of donors are democrats

Kellyanne of Green Goebbels has no options, but will simply live by further exploiting her daughter even as she recently appeared on some shiatty reality tv singing competition. It will go on until she turns 18, and can escape those assholes.

I wish I had a name that was so flagrantly gay.

I have nothing against gay people of course. I just have a boring-ass name.

Ha! Where are all the centrists who were championing these grifters.

Rubes and marks, the lot of them.

Protecting sexual harassers and grifters with more passion than any progressive cause. The centrist way.

"@ProjectLincoln should shut down, absent full disclosure of its finances. As this detailed story shows, there's simply too much money that hasn't been accounted for, and, I fear, never will be," Conway tweeted on Monday, with a link to the latest Times report about the Lincoln Project's financial dealings.

A conservative?  Calling for accountability amongst his own people????

HRRNGHK!!!

Yes, the dysfunction coming out of that family is incredibly painful. I feel sorry for the daughter.

I never gave them money. They had a role in '20 and they did a good job at taking fire from Trump. I gave my $$ to Fair Fight and Act Blue. I assume there's some grift but at least Dem's run them
 
2021-03-09 10:13:03 AM  
Of course they are all grifters. The important thing is that they are busy fighting each other and not united against Democrats. We want this infighting to go on as long as possible.

Yup, THIS. The LP was run by W's minions, but Trump lost and if they helped, then good.

I think the TLP took ample amounts from Democrats as well. And I believe that the results of their efforts were minimal.

Literally no "centrists" were championing these grifters, beyond perhaps being happy they were using their money to fight Trump, rather than to support the chamber of commerce.

A lot of us held to that idea while others on this very site responded, "Do you want Trump to win again? We need all the help we can get. The enemy of my enemy is..." blah blah blah.

Never mind that the Lincoln Project was founded by Kellyanne's husband, the guy who foisted Sarah Palin upon the lower 48 & Hawaii, and the guy who tried to weaponize Rev. Wright's association with (then-candidate) Obama; apparently we were in such bad shape that we "needed" help from this group of hardcore conservative snazzy commercial makers, to the point where people were sending them money (?!).
 
2021-03-09 11:46:14 AM  
The Lincoln Project took over 4 years to reveal their full republicanism.  Let them disband and start over, it will probably take fewer years for people to recognize they are, always have been and always will be republicans.
