Typically you'd say "a coup in slow-motion," but this one is happening on the double.

It's not just a campaign photo -- she now stars in a Trump vid.

100% This was worked out in advance. Us more or less nice people haven't figured out how quick and dirty these things happen.

Smart man! Still, if they were squarely offered the chance, ... And, the only reason we gave Puerto Ricans citizenship in 1917 was so they could be drafted for WWI. I'm thinking getting drafted with no vote is pretty shitty, ...

Amy Coney Barrett is the first Justice in over 150 years to be confirmed to the Supreme Court without *any* bipartisan support. Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg was confirmed 96-3. Barrett is an insult to RBG’s legacy in every way.

Excellent op-ed. I think people have trouble understanding that racism and fascism go together--and to think of all the people who died in the 20th century trying to stamp out that evil brew of fascism-racism only to have it come waltzing back in on FB and in presidential tweets.

For Trump, everywhere is Ukraine, and every deal is a kind of hostage-situation.

Yep--but read NYTs it would seem all is well. They admit Trump has zero plan for pandemic, and zip for post-Obamacare, but all is still "normal"--forget about the fact that wherever Trump, Pence and Co. go they are f+cking super-spreaders. Come 11/4, NYTs will need an overall.

I can't remember where it says in the Bible that Jesus was pro-pandemic.

Turns out GOP is dead-set on giving us those "death panels" that they wouldn't shut up about, back in the day.

But, Putin's denials would make conspiracy theories appear all the stronger, no? If Putin endorsed them, they'd appear all the more faked, I reckon.

This is the face of a woman who's having a damn hard time pretending she has any values or sense of dignity.
