If his candidate wins, he claims credit. If his candidate loses, it's because they never really had enough revolutionary fervor.

Claim credit for all successes and lay blame for any failures. Hmmm, why does that sound familiar?

"populist Bannonite Republicans" -- a weird way of saying "Nazi douchebag backed by a guy who looks like he's probably tried to drink store-brand Icy Hot to catch a buzz"

I love the way these repugnant coonts just throw each other under the bus without hesitation.

Combine that with the grotesque, bloated form of Bannon, and the avarice and ignorance of Trump, and I can't think of a better representation of Capitalism.

The sad thing is that the vast majority of alt-righters probably voted thinking their guys were true alt-righters, but as soon as they lost, switched right over into, "they were not conservative enough, therefore nobody wanted them" mode.  Hell, they probably think the self described anti-LGBT guy who got beat by the transgender woman was not alt-righty enough now.

But I've been assured that white supremacists are not losers. They are the M*ster R*ce. How can the M*ster R*ce be losers?

Bannon, much like Putin, just wants to cause chaos.
Both are doing a great job.

It's becoming increasingly obvious to me that the reason the polls in 2016 were off, was because so many Evangelicals stayed home rather than vote for the Mormon, and because Obama had a lot of non-regular voters fired up to vote.  Normally, there are a lot of people who support a candidate, just not enough to stand in line for a couple hours to vote for them.  So in 2016 likely voters were scewed too heavily for the dems, and under counted for the GOP.  Now, that the polls have adjusted, dems are being undercounted, because of all the regular voters who stayed home rather than vote Hillary, and Republicans are being overcounted, because of all the Nazis who are not going to stand in line to vote for a guy who is only kind of racist.  At least that is what I am hoping.  We will see in Alabama in a few days.  I still expect Moore to win, but if the dems come within a point of him, it is all over for the GOP in 2018.

I, for one, am shocked to hear that Steve Bannon might be a bit of con-man...I mean, who would have thought a successful businessman might lie and swindle? It just boggles the mind...

This is my surprised face.

( 0 - 0 )

See? Those are real tears of confusion. Totes real. For realsies.

/BTW, I DO have some lovely oceanside property in Western Mass if anyone is interested. JUST as real as those tears. Totes.

My very first reaction to him was that he was overrated. Thinking that he's a slick political operator is like thinking that Grumps is a smart businessman. It's like a sitcom where the besotted fool looks at his hideous beau and, courtesy of a rippling scene cut, sees Miss America.

His complete about-face when his candidates are kicked to the curb doesn't surprise me in the least. He is as able to be self-critical as President Wattlebolus.

Interestingly, when I read that comment I immediately thought of Christians. Like how if anything good happens, it's 'Praise God.' If anything bad happens, it's 'You're not godly enough.'

Took me a second to realize you meant Trump. But I guess most of his supporters are well-practiced in accepting this kind of thinking.

This gives us a clue as to how Bannon operates. He swoops in and stakes his claim. If his candidate wins, he claims credit. If his candidate loses, it's because they never really had enough revolutionary fervor. They are then airbrushed out of the pictures. Only successes end up on the resume.

How is this different than any other Republican ever?

Republicans, if a GOP candidate loses: He wasn't conservative enough. (or) The Dems cheated.

Democrats, if a Dem cnadidate loses: The candidate sucked, the campaign sucked, the party sucks, the voters suck, we all knew they had no chance, we're doomed, I'm booking my move to Canada.

The national polls were dead on in 2016. They missed the vote split by 1%, well within the margin of error. A 3% win by Clinton was predicted. She got 2%. The problem was the reliability of the state level polls in those states in the "Blue Wall" that flipped.

Steve Bannon was a vindictive, petty, irresponsible humanoid who had delusions of grandeur and aspirations for things even bigger than his own frame of reference.

You're out, Bannon. We're wise to your machinations and you won't pee on our hands ever again.

Finito.
 
2017-11-09 08:27:27 AM  
That's where you're wrong, libs.  Steve Bannon is playing a master game of inter-dimensional Risk!  It was his plan all along to support Ed Gillespie only to see him fail!  This strategy is clearly described in the Art of War, which is a book that all smart people enjoy immensely.

Steve Bannon is playing The Long Game.  It's the same cut-throat ruthlessness that he used execute his Machiavellian plan to become increasingly irrelevant in the White House before eventually getting fired.

Take notes, libs.  Tick tock, libs.  Tick tock.

Winter is coming on. I can only hope he attends some white supremacist mixer in the Great Lakes area, gets blindingly drunk, and ends up dying of exposure trying to find his rental car.

Well, I don't hope for it but I'd raise a cold one.

Bannon is that loser in high school who still wants to fit in but he's such a giant farking piece of shiat that he has to participate from the sidelines.

This. They are both repellent pieces of shiat who sound -- always -- like repellent pieces of shiat. Nobody was "fooled" by these obvious assholes. They voted for Pussy Grabber von farktard BECAUSE he's a piece of shiat. They want to be bigger pieces of shiat to other people vicariously through him and his disgusting enablers in the Republican party.

Republicans are terrible people. Terrible people who -- at least the more sentient among them -- are beginning to understand that the rest of us see them as terrible people and have been trying to escape that judgment with whining about how we need to be nice and work with them, blah blah blah, politics is too divisive (their preference when it works for them), etc., all bullshiat. They are incapable of speaking the truth now. Lies and bullshiat come so naturally to them (after decades of practice honed by watching Faux News, the festering blob known as Limbaugh, various appalling Republican politicians, the whole vomit-inducing Republican bullshiat infrastructure) that nothing they say should be considered to be the least bit reasonable or offered in good faith. They have no good faith left. The numerous times it's been offered to them (by the black president, for example), they gleefully shiat all over it and then dare us to say anything about it, like the cliche school bully who does that so-clever "Why are you hitting yourself?" thing.

fark them. All of them. I only hope it's not too late to undo the damage they've caused and would like to continue causing. The only thing that will ever buy them any redemption at all is an unqualified rejection of the Republican party and every single one of its worthless "principles."

Brietbart, literally, went from singing out Gillespie was the God chosen vector of the Cheeto God's divine vision to Virginia to claiming he's an establishment hack that no one had ever heard of.  Like, within a hours time.
