1) No shiat.
2) F*ck you Joe Scarborough.

Scarborough really is infuriating. He loves drawing false equivalences.  "If you're a conservative law-and-order Republican you have to back the FBI. Do you want to sound like Democrats who think it's wrong for the police to murder Black people???"

I pledge allegiance, to the turd

Of the MAGA states of 'Murica

And to the Republicans who kneel, not stand

One mob, gobbling his knob

Inexcusable, with malice and hate for all

Going on a show and saying "I had these conversations with these two people that clearly illustrate the point I'm trying to make, but no I can't say who they were and our conversations weren't on record and I have no other sources to corroborate what they said" is no different than Trump talking about "all these people" who are coming up and telling him how unfairly he's being treated. Anyone can invent anecdotes. When you have your own goddamn talk show, you get the goddamn people you're talking to on the show. Asshole.

I mean, duh?

Ever since the terrorist attack on the Capitol on 1/6/22, it became objectively and undeniably anti-American to continue supporting Mango Mussolini.

I heard a Farker, a long-time guy from back in the Foobies days, who who said anyone - literally anyone - can say they heard some fanciful yarns from really important people. This guy, he's very trustworthy around Fark.

Some mornings all I want to watch is commercials for pharmaceuticals and shows on the NBC family of networks.

But then this guy Joe keeps interrupting for a minute or two at a time.  Then he plays some old rock music and I know we're going back to my precious commercials.

And they are loyal to Trump because he says racist shiat and refuses to apologize for it. That is the only thing the worthless trash want in a leader.

This is untrue. If Trump started saying gays and blacks deserve human rights and co2 emissions are a problem needing industry regulation he'd be canned like last week's fish sticks. Right wing reactionaries have principles, terrible principles.

It is because Trump is the very embodiment of The American Dream:

We may not quite have reached the point where Scarborough family members or where Washington fixtures from the days of Ronald Reagan are willing to say these things publicly yet.

However, there might be seeming useful separation between journalistic roles if "talk show host/interviewer" had less overlap with "investigative reporter using anonymous sources" -- although the latter might appear on a program of the former.

This isn't surprising in the least. What we're seeing from them is exactly what David Frum predicted.

I guess when the culture becomes "party over country", once a strongman comes in and becomes their cult of personality, this is really not that big of a leap. I have heard right wingers try to rationalize it for years. The "government" isn't "America", it's the land, the trees, the eagles, etc. To rationalize treason to the Constitution, they have to separate the national identity from the government the Constitution is the blueprint for. Of course without constitutional governance, we have no nation. We are a nation of laws, without the laws we are not a nation. The Republicans used to repeat that line when pushing agendas like when they caught Bill Clinton lying about a BJ, justifying the death of an unarmed minority or poor person, or wanting to justify running over protestors. Since Trump usurped the party, they no longer carry copies of pocket Constitutions in their pockets or speak of rule of law. Now it's all about how to undermine the Constitution and the rule of law on a lie and a technicality.

People talk about how unless they get their perfect dream candidate they will not vote because they are tired of voting for the lesser of two evils. In reality you are not. You are voting between pure evil and people with good intentions but sometimes are clueless how to implement them. It's easier to educate the clueless than rehabilitate the evil.

I don't know why people don't know that at this point.

Trump represents the Republican belief that government is meant to be run by, and benefit, white, rich men. That is what they fear losing the most.
