I think so. Anyway, if you decide you want a house mate who won't steal the fucking towel racks, let me know. I can't take this Tennessee waltz much longer because I don't dance.
I was confused after reading that your senator lamar was going to put his country above trump.
He has never done anything in his life that wasn't 100% repug. So why do people write articles expecting him or Collins or whatever repug liar to be different this time?
Well, before the Senate vote there was speculation that he and Collins and Murkowski and one or two more of them would vote to allow witness testimony. Marsha Blackburn is a lost cause and is a blatant trump whore, which I pointed out to her in an email yesterday evening after she prevented two election security bills from advancing in the Senate. Still haven't heard back from her on that even though I said "I expect an answer" in my note. That may have been the only sentence that wasn't ripe with choice profanity in the whole message and it was about two hundred words.

I'm not so sure that ol lamar ain't worse than blackburn. At least she's easy to identify as a trump whore or a corporate whore or whatever, not so with pretty boy lamar. He just slips along with media praise for his reasonableness without ever having done anything reasonable in his sorry plaid shirt life.
Well, for better or worse, Alexander will soon be gone. But who knows what kind of nutjob these gullible ignorant fools around here will elect in his stead. As for Marsha, the hell with her. The other day I sent her a nice email calling her everything but a white woman over her prevention of two election security bills advancing; it only took one Senator to stop them, and she stood up and did it. I hope she dies soon.

Updated April 3, 2020:

In 1,170 days, President Trump has made 18,000 false or misleading claims
The Fact Checker’s ongoing database of the false or misleading claims made by President Trump since assuming office.


At this pace, 400/mo, I estimate about 21,600 by 1/20/2021. However, the pace may be slowing because he could rattle off 50 or 100 at a single rally.

Not according to con Catholics.
"Is the Pope Catholic" is an old way of expressing certainty that something about someone is actually as immutable as the Catholicism of the head of the Catholic Church.

I'm aware of that. My post is commentary on the strong Catholic con reaction to this somewhat liberal pope.

I haven't seen much about it in the news lately, but there was vicious con reaction to Francis his first couple of years as Pope. He did a lot of bureaucratic housecleaning, expressed some tolerance for gays and took more liberal positions on other issues.

Sounds more like opinion/discussion than immutable fact.

:confusion-scratchheadblue: :?:

I'm not opining one way or the other. As you can easily look up:

Pope Francis did do a lot of bureaucratic housecleaning;
Pope Francis did express some tolerance for gays;
Pope Francis did take more liberal positions on other issues than his predecessors;
Con Catholics did strongly react to these things and question whether he's a "real" Catholic, just like our fundies question whether liberal Christian churches are "real" Christians.

Did you really not know any of this?

Whatever, if you still dispute whether any of these are facts you are welcome to post contrary evidence and/or gripe to banni. Good luck.

One can debate whether John Bolton is also a liar, but it is a fact that he wrote the book:

His pace has increased! Guess I didn't account for it being an election year.

Desperation:
Trump Campaign Busted For Deceptively Manipulating Biden Photos In New Ad

... The image of Biden sitting on the floor “alone” and “hiding” was actually from a football-watching party in Iowa. The background was manipulated to make it look as if Biden were sitting on the floor of an empty room:
About that new Trump ad alleging that Biden is “Alone. Hiding. Diminished.”

The clip at the four second mark is edited to make it look like he is sitting on the floor of his basement alone.

But it’s from an Iowa event last December. The room was full. See below:


Image

...
Biden was photographed touching his forehead while conducting a town hall at an Iowa nature preserve in September 2019.

The Trump campaign edited out his mic and the trees to portray him as stuck in his Delaware basement...though kept his sunglasses. https://www.cnn.com/2020/08/05/politics ... index.html


Image

Image
...
The new Trump ad accidentally shows just how few photos/how little b-roll Biden has produced since March. An image meant to make him look defeated/old is of him praying in church!

AP FACT CHECK: Trump skews record on Biden-Harris, economy

President Donald Trump greeted the Democratic presidential ticket of Joe Biden and Kamala Harris this past week with a litany of distortion and falsehoods, raging against cases of voting fraud where they didn't exist and declining to quash conspiracy theories about Harris’ eligibility for office.

Trump also misrepresented Biden's position on taxes, again minimized the coronavirus threat and exaggerated his own record on the economy.

A look at some of the past week's rhetoric and the facts: ...

AP FACT CHECK: Trump's flawed justification for postal cuts

President Donald Trump is misrepresenting the U.S. Postal Service's financial problems as his postmaster general defends cuts that have slowed mail delivery in advance of the November election.

Speaking before the start of the Democratic National Convention, Trump raged anew about the perils of mail-in voting and argued that the post office needed an overhaul, blaming Amazon deliveries for its operating in the red. Package deliveries actually have been the bright spot for the post office, with double-digit increases in revenue.

Trump also gave his trade deal with China false credit for generating the purchases of U.S. goods that Beijing agreed to make. Chinese imports of U.S. products are actually running at less than half of what Trump negotiated, and it’s even worse for American farmers who sell to China.

A look at some of his claims Monday: ...

(Also, a false claim about the MN FLOYD PROTESTS)

Thanks, neoplacebo! Long, but worth reading.

Trump Is Far from the First Presidential Liar, But He’s Definitely the Worst

… One of the most interesting things about Donald Trump is that while he is in many obvious ways a dunce, he is also in others a genius. And nowhere is that genius on better display than in his instinctive ability to exploit not only the news media’s desperate search for shiny objects in the form of phony conflicts he constantly creates, but also in their inability to rein in, or even report accurately, on his lies. Trump lies so frequently and with such a lack of self-consciousness that it is impossible for anyone to keep up.
Sigh.
… Trump successfully defined the terms of his relationship as president immediately after winning the election. As I explain in the book, “In addition to winning the Electoral College in a landslide,” he tweeted, “I won the popular vote if you deduct the millions of people who voted illegally.” This was nonsense. When the returns from the popular vote were tallied, Clinton had beaten Trump by nearly three million votes. His 46 percent share of the overall vote was lower even than that of recent losers, including Gerald Ford (1976), Al Gore (2000), John Kerry (2004), and Mitt Romney (2012).
Interesting comparisons.
And yet this lie quickly became conventional wisdom in the pro-Trump media. A July 2017 Morning Consult/Politico poll found that 47 percent of Republicans believed that Trump had won the popular vote, just 5 percent fewer than those who knew the truth. Trump’s lie proved to be a brilliant political stroke, as it addressed three problems simultaneously. First, for those who believed whatever he said, it eliminated any uncertainty about the legitimacy of his victory. Second, it advanced his false argument that undocumented immigrants were undermining America and doing so at the behest of media elites and Democrats. And third, it provided the foundation for future lies.
America was screwed from the get-go.
… The combination of Trump’s lies about the coronavirus and his lawless response to “Black Lives Matter” protests have put tens of thousands of Americans at risk, and give every impression of threatening the future viability of the republic itself. The time to call him on his lies, and to refuse to pass them along unrebuked, is long past. For honest reporters covering the president, if you are not part of the solution, you are, alas, part of the problem.
