30 Years of Reckless Republican Ratfucking

The president embarks on delicate negotiations with the Islamic Republic of Iran...he is firm in his belief that in the presidency resides the sole power to conduct the foreign relations of the United States.
When these negotiations are uncovered, this is the primary argument presented by the president and his defenders against the angry opposition of the Congress. The president is Ronald Reagan. The negotiations are regarding the exchange of weapons for American hostages, something the president vowed he never would do, and something he already told the country he hadn't done. The deal was facilitated in part by Israeli intelligence operatives, which is no surprise. Israel already agreed to sell Iran $40 million in weapons in a deal that had fallen through. Also, in deciding to sell the arms, the president was inspired partly by a book about combatting terrorism put together by an ambitious Israeli politician named Benjamin Netanyahu.

Now, we have a president again embarking on delicate negotiations with the same fractious and unpredictable state. This time, instead of arming it, he is trying to reach a deal by which Iran will agree not to build nuclear weapons. Republicans in the Congress, heedless of the principles on which their party stood 30 years ago, and on their own initiative, invite that same Benjamin Netanyahu to come to the Congress to give a speech aimed at undermining the president's policy toward Iran and sabotaging any deal. This, say these members of Congress, is necessary to maintain Congress's role in helping to manage the foreign policy of the country.

Unctuous

Scarborough Accuses Dems Who Boycott Netanyahu Speech Of Antisemitism

With its upper west side gravitas, and centrist patina, this program is far more regressive than anything on Fox.

Democrats are antisemitic.

Right-Wing Dumbasses Are Mad at Obama...















...because American conservatives have a talent for combining stupidity, venality, and desperation in truly exceptional ways.

Moron


Rand Paul (KY)

Of course, he's an anti-vaxxer, in addition to a hundred other vaguely libertarian positions—all essentially designed to deceive oneself and others.

Having lived in Louisville for a few years, one becomes familiar with this type of charlatan, a product of what I call the Kentucky bubble—low-grade intellects developed within a low-stakes environment.

Asshole


Jim Webb

Good job douchbag.

Hint:
White identity politics, essentially running to create the Democratic Tea Party.
What could go wrong?

Ta-Nehisi Coates


Bill Moyers interview with Ta-Nehisi Coates.
Moyers and Company

Very astute capture of our collective problem—our collective legacy. America's DNA is polluted with violence, hatred, and fear. Decades of institutional racism will not simply disappear—the reflexive denials will only compound and extend the injustice.

It will not just go away.

BOOM!

Here’s the thing. When we talk about race relations in America or racial progress, it’s all nonsense. There are no race relations. White people were crazy. Now they’re not as crazy. To say that black people have made progress would be to say they deserve what happened to them before.

Nutshell

The short history of modern American politics is as follows:

Conservatives poison the public well with paranoia, bigotry and plain bugfuck insanity while sabotaging the government on purpose to gain political and economic advantage.

Liberals point out that poisoning the public well and sabotaging the government are, y'know. bad things.

Centrists clutch their pearls until their palms bleed, and then blame their stigmata on both sides being equally unreasonable and mean.

This alley runs to the farm on the hill
Where the nights are wild and the petrol spill
Firestone Freddy and Molotov Jack
Their shadow goes but it soon come back
Striking sparks in floods of oil
No name no flag for mother soil
You can guarantee she`ll burn tonight
`Cos England keeps the household white
Ahh...1986, Thatcher, Reagan, Mike Tyson, and before BENGHAZI!, just BEIRUT! (yet, strangely, not quite as shrill).
