    Somebody, anybody: name a Democrat in favor of a $15 an hour minimum wage, free tuition to public colleges and universities, a phased reduction in the number of current wars, or single-payer health care.

    Even one? The party of F.D.R. has lost its mind.

    When this comes to nothing; as indeed it will because it’s fake Democrats trying to prove a highly-fetishized crime they cannot name, breaking laws they cannot find, using evidence that doesn’t exist, all to convince a Republican House and a Republican Senate, somehow despite a Republican Supreme Court, to remove a Republican president to replace him with a more effective, more steadfastly theoconservative Republican president; how are the Democrats that fell for this pointless make-believe going to react?

    How are they going to vote when, as with so many witch hunts in the past once they’ve burned themselves out, they get a good look at what they became? At what Democrats have become?

    You couldn’t name one, could you? Meanwhile, when not if Republicans take one more state legislature, they’ll be able to call a constitutional convention and redraft the American constitution.

      They don't care about what they've become. They care about money and power. At all costs.

        Oh, nothing's a problem until it's a problem, then it's a problem. Day comes you have to do basic arithmetic, look hard at what you've got to show for however long you've got in, and reckon with how what you're going to get is pretty much whatever you've got already.

        You can't win for losing. All of Clinton's McCarthyist flying monkeys couldn't, can't, and won't change the fact if the election were held now, to-stinking-day! she wouldn't even win the popular vote. Look ahead two years, even if she gets the war with Russia this is all really about, what sucker's going to think the Democratic Party is on their side against the richest and most powerful?

        The ones all agog at this balsa wood, sorry ass witch hunt that passes for 'resistance' in the Trump Era? Please… Now pull the other one.

        Republicans in sheep's clothes like the Clintons are how you end up with presidents like Trumpelstilskin. The "drip, drip, drip" you hear is what's left of the New Deal bleeding out on the floor, while Diet Republicans thrill at the thought of putting a Christian Dominionist like Pence in the White House via impeachment.

        This isn't why we're doomed, ultimately it's just one aspect, but the salient part seems to be that yes, absent any progressive opposition to this American Caligula and his orgiastic reign, we're all doomed.

    Special council is going to be sacked shortly.

      Even the Republicans in Congress have said what is the point of sacking the special prosecutor when they will just vote to add a special prosecutor and Lindsey Graham said they would even reappoint Meuller if it came to that.
