If I've learned anything from being on fark for years, it's that when a republican says they're pro abortion rights it's because they're trying to trick fiscal conservative, social liberal voters into voting for them. They'll vote how they're told by the confederate States.

And he'll convene a Constitutional Convention to deprive you of your rights in a heartbeat, just as any other Republican governor would.
 
2022-05-21 3:50:55 PM  
Is he corrupt?  Because that's a requirement.
 
2022-05-21 3:52:32 PM  
He's not a contradiction, he's a dinosaur.  He's running to win the nomination of the GOP from 1980.

Get with the times.  The GOP has gone full wingnut.  You're a Democrat now.  Accept it.

I mean, I GUESS he's a better R option than freakin' Astorino?

Just stop, Rob. No one likes you.

I would call him an Eisenhower Republican.  That's when the party started to die.

Sane Republicans have done well in gubernatorial races on the east coast lately.

NY can get many things right, governors are not one of them.

The Democrats can't move to the right trying to appeal to ""reasonable" or "sane" Republicans unless the media pushes this fairy tale.

And they claim progressives are asking for Unicorns.

Who does he think he'll appeal to? Anybody who's leaning Democratic doesn't trust him for being ex-Republican. Anybody who's leaning Republican won't support him for being "too left-wing" to them.

The last the Democrats need are more neocons in their party.

The Democratic leadership thinks it's still 1972, where the GOP isn't lethally irrational.

According to the article the only reason the GOP wanted him to run is because he's wealthy and can spend millions and millions of dollars of his own money on this longshot race. So, it isn't that they think that he appeals to anybody, it's just that they don't have to spend jack shiat on his campaign.

Is "pro-abortion rights" something like "in favor of gravity" or is it more like "there should easily be more blind people if we weren't so lazy"?

Politica -- It's like Politico but for women.

Does he share horse porn with his office? Also a requirement for GOP candidates.

Very appropriate for GOP politics. The first lines:

Do as I say, not as I do
Because the shiat's so deep
You can't run away

The party started to die when they rejected Teddy Roosevelt's progressivism.

Who hates him so much that no other photo could be located?

When it's Cruz or Giuliani, I get it, but whom has this guy ired so?

The funny thing is, supporting abortion rights is completely in line with the whole "party of small government" thing.

I mean, the "party of small government" thing is a blatant lie, but still.

"Trick". They know perfectly well what they're doing.

fark that noise. The last thing anyone needs is more white supremacist Democrats.

He is the mostly likely GOP candidate to succeed, which is why NY GOP will put all their trust in Zeldin instead.

These are not smart people.

White supremacy is a purity test we can't afford to demand from our Democratic candidates. There's too much at stake right now. We need people to vote blue no matter who in 2022. Maybe in some far-off future election we can decide whether or not white supremacy is good or bad.

What's the matter, couldn't they get Carl "Horsefarker" Paladino to run again?

/Aside from the bestiality emails, he's also a pretty upfront virulent racist. Kind of ahead of his time in GOP politics.

"Look, I'm a lifelong Republican. I think I'm more consistent with the Republican Party than some of my erstwhile opponents. So I think I'm going to win the nomination," Harry Wilson said in an interview.

ARAB

Nope, wait... A.R.A.B.
 
2022-05-21 6:27:18 PM  
he's probably the only republican that could win in november, but has no chance in the june primary
 
2022-05-21 7:10:45 PM  
He's a poet, he's a picker
He's a prophet, he's a pusher
He's a pilgrim and a preacher, and a problem when he's stoned
He's a walkin' contradiction, partly truth and partly fiction,
Takin' ev'ry wrong direction on his lonely way back home
 
2022-05-21 7:33:39 PM  
you're still a republican, asshole. which makes you trash.

That's an interesting fade going on. There's a 90° corner representing his right wing beliefs with a little gray FedEx-style arrow above his ear, too.

Does he know what 'erstwhile' means?
