    While I agree with this, I've had a long running conversation/debate with my mom who is 2nd generation (? late 1960s/early 1970s) feminist who decided to join the Catholic Church. But, she has always thought that it is necessary to have people who can change things from the inside. That is how I see them in the video.

    I'm not sure what video you're referring to? The post I replied to had an article but not a video.

    I do like your Mom's thinking.

    Now she realizes he’s a nut? No, once you go craven you never go back.

    I'm not saying that she didn't realize that he's a nut, but the owner telling advertisers straight up to go f******** themselves is the difference between knowing your spouse is fooling around and catching them going at it in your bed in your house while the kids are watching a movie in the living room, and then they all laugh at you and tell you to come back later.

    This is beyond alarming.....When Clinton used the world "deplorable" it was in the MSM for weeks if not months. TFG called more than 1/2 of America "vermin", it lasted a few days and it is history now.

    Brian Klaas: “Trump continues his deranged authoritarian outbursts, which, due to the ‘banality of crazy,’ will garner virtually no mainstream coverage. Americans deserve to know this stuff. Trump’s authoritarianism is the most important political story in America—and nothing else is close.”

    It truly should be the only campaign 'story' and yet the MSM can barely be bothered to talk about it.

    This thing where the media agrees to treat the public like consumers making personal choices which need to be respected if not outright catered to, rather than citizens who have a civic duty to be informed, is going to kill democracy if we let it.

    This needs to be the focus of every single Biden/Dem ad. It's either Biden or Authoritarianism, with no middle ground. Use video clips of Trump saying the first thing he's gonna do is go after his enemies and all the other horrific stuff needs to be in every ad and talking point. The good news is that you can have a whole bunch of ads with this theme and never repeat them.

    This is not the time for the "when they go low, we go high" strategy.

    I agree with your last sentence. That said, I am not sure a large enough portion of the American electorate thinks authoritarianism is bad. Sorry for the pessimism.

    The last 7 years have taught us that there is no limit to the depths some people will sink to gain wealth and curry favor with a loathsome leader.

    Yeah, I know a lot of the "swing" voters are not exactly interested in nuance, but when Trump decides to go after his "enemies," that could literally be anyone. Even these people who are considering him need to realize that it takes almost nothing for someone to be considered an "enemy," regardless of how loyal they might have been in the past.

    Not that I'm anything close to a Mike Pence fan, but he was a sniveling lapdog when it came to standing by your man, but the one time he realized the Constitution isn't merely a suggestion, Trump was fine with the people who wanted to lynch him.

    I want to believe they just met accidentally at a baseball game.
    I have a lot of respect from that woman. She is the antithesis of a Kissinger.
    Would be disappointing if she is part of the kissing the ring crew.

    Please raise your hand if you are surprised......I am totally convince that this crew of MAGA/Far right activists are totally unredeemable. Bunch of cons, grifters and criminals.

    Christian Ziegler, the husband of Moms for Liberty co-founder Bridget Ziegler, is under criminal investigation after a woman filed a complaint with police alleging the longtime Republican official had raped her, the Florida Trident reports.

    The woman also alleged that she and both Zieglers had been involved in a longstanding consensual three-way sexual relationship prior to the incident.

    Lawrence O'Donnell just covered this (the dangerous numbing effect of the banality of crazy) at length. The news media is weak and failing to rise the challenge of covering his campaign correctly, and the stakes are even higher this time, he says. To his credit, O'Donnell has been calling trump a liar going back to his birther lies about Obama...and he's never let up for a second.

    Lawrence: Media still not ready to cover Trump after years of his lies (msnbc.com)

    That was a brilliant presentation by Lawrence. Unfortunately he is preaching to the converted. I am losing hope on our media.
