Plus: Why you should be alarmed. But not panicked.
Edit suggestion: “Trump is old and crazy”
RE: "The Polls and the Bedwetting"
The Dems being worried is a good thing for their cause, because complacency got DJT in the White House in the first place.
“[...] This isn’t conservative Republicanism. This is stupidity,[...]” Rep. Mike Lawler.
...And who put the stupidity in the House? [spoiler alert] It was stupid voters. If actors represent the constituency's sentiment, then guess what? It's the constituency, Stupid!
Charlie, do me a really big favor and STOP doing exactly what the rest of the media is doing - making Biden's age an issue by bringing it up ALL. THE. TIME. The more that you harp on it, the more people think it's a legitimate issue. At the very least - very least you can do - any headline or even sentences in which you mention Biden's age, you need to state that Trump is ONLY three years younger. Your headline today? Should have been "Biden Is Old, But Trump Is Old AND Crazy (and Dangerous)". We can't do anything about Biden's age, so for the love of all things holy, stop talking about it so people stop thinking about it or at least point out that Trump is old, too!
Kim Wehle: "Assuming that no shocking new evidence arises in connection with McCarthy’s inquiry, it’s arguably undemocratic, as well."
Huh? What does finding or not finding evidence have to do with whether the inquiry is democratic or undemocratic?
If shocking new evidence does arise, it should be considered the fruit of a poisoned tree, because the inquiry IS a priori undemocratic,
Natch, the crazy goes beyond Trump by now. This means that a Trump-alternative GOP nominee doesn't solve the problem in 2024. Any such nominee will be beholden to the chaos caucus and base to an unacceptable degree.
So we shouldn't leave anyone thinking that a vote against Trump will restore GOP acceptability. Beyond local precincts it's a rump party, completely broken for national elective purposes.
Trump = Coward. Loser. Fascist. (none of this "adjacent" stuff!)
Our final choice, doddering versus delusional.
Instead of worrying about Biden's age be very afraid of Trump getting in again. If that happens it will be the last free presidential election you'll ever have to participate in.
Funny how a crazed GOP former prez and a NJ senator both managed to "wed" busty women. Guess tits for tats matter.
Maybe after Yascha Mounk is done with his what about dance he can cover even more bomb threats directed to schools stemming from posts on Libs of TikTok.
Let’s not miss the TFG also threatened the Koch Bros and Brian Roberts of Comcast! He’s on a roll!
One comment about the “first indictment” that everyone glosses over.. it might seem like a nothing burger but “someone” spent time in jail for it (Michael Cohen, no matter what you think of him) so Trump should have to pay some price too.
I have been alarmed that any living person still thinks Trump is a normal person and should be president again. I am hopeful that as more people read the sickening things he says and see the "real Trump," not the fictional-Fox's he-was-a-great-president-Trump, the country, at least in the states that matter like my home state Michigan, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, and maybe three more will rescue this country from doom. Polls now just don't mean anything.
Amanda - I think it's that big ZERo following the 8 that scares people. But at 82 myself, I don't feel that much different from 5 years ago (pre-Covid).
Trump is old, but at least superficially, he does not appear too old. Love Biden, but the years have not been kind to him. Lest I get my head blown off by other members if I continue further, I will only recommend that everyone listen to the latest Conversations, Bill Kristol with James Carville, both of whom are more qualified than I—and most everyone else—to opine.
Just a reminder, Charlie: Trump is not only crazy, but OLD! A little behind Biden, but....
