Quote for the day

Trump did nothing. The plan to take both Mosul and Raqqa was initiated under Obama, and Trump famously refused to approve a new plan for months because the military kept telling him that Obama’s approach was working. So he put them off and put them off until he finally approved a plan in August that was mostly the same as the plan we already had. And now he’s claiming that this new plan turned things around in eight weeks.

I know we don’t expect anything else from Trump. But he can always be even worse than you think, can’t he? Hell, he didn’t even give the military any credit, let alone Obama. What a jackass.

White-trash threat of the day

“Yeah, well I hear it. And people have to be careful because at some point I fight back,” Trump said. “I’m being very nice. I’m being very, very nice. But at some point I fight back, and it won’t be pretty.”

Now is the time for all good men to come to the aid of their country.

This year’s fiction bestseller

You think people are kidding when you read that many evangelicals actually believe that The Donald was raised up by Our Invisible Friend to save the nation from gays, nigras, immigrants, moozlims, vegetarians, John McCain, and everybody else that Godly White People find annoying? No. They are not kidding; crazy as it is, many evangelicals do believe that.

This will probably be a hot Christmas gift amongst evangelicals; that certainly is who it is aimed at.

Quote for the day

To fear the world we have organized and led for three-quarters of a century, to abandon the ideals we have advanced around the globe, to refuse the obligations of international leadership and our duty to remain ‘the last best hope of earth’ for the sake of some half-baked, spurious nationalism cooked up by people who would rather find scapegoats than solve problems is as unpatriotic as an attachment to any other tired dogma of the past that Americans consigned to the ash heap of history.

Senator John McCain

I totally forgive McCain’s choice of the appalling Sarah Palin as his running mate in 2008; would that more of our so-called leadership spoke-out frankly about the danger of the cheap fascist who now occupies and soils the White House.
