Late Night 2020 Maneuvering Open Thread: Speaking of Gutless Wonders…


.
I know ‘Just imagine if Obama / Hillary had… ‘ is a much-used trope, but seriously, can you imagine what the Media Village Idiots would’ve said if the Democrats had declared no party members would be permitted to challenge the Anointed One?


(Which Google translates as: The decision was made unanimously by the Central Committee. Hail to the decisions of the Party! We implement them in full – in life! [Loud and prolonged applause])
.
Possibly relevant:

Maybe they just can’t afford to, now that Vladimir doesn’t need to sweeten the pot…

    Problem is, we’ve got Trump and the Village is not sure whether they have a problem with that.

    Reality is worse than any hypothetical. And despite the spanking that Trump is getting from Pelosi, the GOP leadership and the right wing media is doubling down in their support of Trump. They are fine with putting the nation’s future at risk.

    They are afraid of something. Some vision of the future. It doesn’t matter whether or not this future would be better for everyone in the long run. They would rather die and take everyone down with them.

    Gutless, but neverless somehow able to swallow anything Trump shoves into their mouths and (theoretically) down their throats.

    Lacking spines too. I think I saw one of them on a school field trip once on a boat in Dana Point, sort of a living transparent sandwich bag. Didn’t know at the time it could be elected to high office as a conservative.

    Hell, they did claim that the Democrats said it about Hillary in 2016, and the Bros latched right onto it thanks to Wikileaks’ selective email leaks from the DNC.

    But now that Trump is for real out in public doing the thing that they claimed Hillary was secretly doing? Crickets. Chirp, you fuckers. 😠

    Under Republican leadership, the US is turning into Republicans’ scariest 30-year-old Soviet fever dreams.

    They’re like the Soviet Party, if it was right-wing – without the commitment to anti-colonialism, egalitarianism, or anything but the interests of Donald Trump.

    A vision of the future where Vladmir Putin reveals all the ways he’s helped Republicans get elected and betray America.

    Not always. Only since FDR. Or maybe Taft.
