I’ve heard these two rationalize how “both parties are mostly the same” and “Democrats do the same thing” every time a GOP asshole comes down the chute. I think/hope this will be the election that keeps them home on the big night. But I’m not sure.
Anyway, to someone of that bent, an ad like this could speak to them. My mother, at least.
It's good for America to see the huge asshole demographic unvarnished by a mass-appeal party, with a true huge asshole leading them and voicing their fucked up ideas. For far too long we've pretended they don't exist, and carried on as if between 1 in 10 to 2 in 10 of us weren't shitting in the dining room a couple times a week. They are part of who we are. They probably won't go away soon.
They will never be in charge, but they are here. We need to talk about them. We need to face them.
That's exactly why the praise Nancy Reagan got for her work on alzheimer's funding frosted me so bad—as if there was the slightest chance in hell she would have given the slightest flying fuck about alzheimer's if Ronnie hadn't had it.
It means that a national poll is showing majority support (not just plurality support) from his party for the first time. Did I imply it meant anything else? No.
You do understand the difference between plurality support within a party and majority support within a party and its significance to the nature of a nominating convention (open vs. closed) and the strength of a candidate... Right?
If events like those in Chicago galvanize party support for Trump earlier (rather than later or not at all) it makes him a stronger candidate with a louder voice instead of silencing him as intended.
It is interesting when the unintended consequences of actions run diametrically against the intended consequences.
Some may be considering Trump. Some might not be any more.
