    I thought the sombrero clad bananas would suffice. But yes, I failed to make it clear.

    To be fair, he is more accustomed to seeing me use that to denote smartassery.

    I guess it was just one of those days.
    Bubba nicely stepped up and admitted he is the Ukrainian troll on here.
    At least I think that is what he said.

    Yeah, I'm not sure about this "threat." That sounds more like a diversion from the scrutiny of her testimony. First, who made this threat? Can we get a name so the credibility of the threat can be considered?

    Second, this isn't a very scary threat. A real threat is, "you can talk to the police or keep both kneecaps but not both." This is an "I'll not like you anymore" threat.

    This was a “you are in a good place. You worked for Cruz, scaliese, meadows, etc. Defendant One reads the transcripts. You’re young. Make him mad and you will be left to work for Kinzinger or Cheney”. It was a threat about future opportunities or lack thereof.

    Maybe you can get a job explaining what Biden and Harris say

    Nobody thinks that's true though. In some circles, trashing Trump is bad for your career. Washington, D.C. isn't one of those. This will hurt her career like Kim Kardashian's sex tape hurt her career.

    This is like a 3-year-old threatening to beat you up, and that's if it actually happened.

    Kim Kardashian made a sex tape? I guess I just don't pay enough attention to popular culture anymore. Where does she go down on the political issues of the day? Who is her favorite politician? These are important questions in our great republic (if we can keep it----oh well, a little late for that)

    It's the big thing that made her famous (beyond her name). Ask Garmel about it. I think he shot the video.

    But she's conservative. She'll have to switch teams.

    It was long ago - 2007. It's what led to the whole Kardashian thing. If you like that kind of thing I'm told it's significantly impressive work on her part.

    Is she a conservative, or is she an opportunist? Most in DC are the latter. She could switch teams with no problem. (See Joe Scarborough, Bill Kristol, Jennifer Rubin, and many others.) She could also join the defense lobby, and Cheney could enable that. It's an industry worth hundreds of billions every year.

    I'd think she's brave as hell to stand up to the machinery that she stood up against. A lot of men didn't do it.

    She stood up to one machinery that has very little power and gained the rabid favor of a much bigger, more powerful, and longer-lasting machine. That isn't brave.

    So, your prediction is that the Dem's are going to win the mid terms?

    You understand that you just acknowledged the cheating and corruption at the hands of Dems in elections, right? Because they are such a powerful machine. I guess it is a stretch to get you to do the same about OU.

    How did you draw that conclusion?

    "machinery that has very little power...gained the rabid favor of a much bigger, more powerful, and longer-lasting machine". To me you are saying that the GOP has very little power and that the Democratic party is much bigger, more powerful and longer-lasting. That implies to me that you're foreshadowing bad things for the GOP. And, from your finger's to God's ear. :)

    "Rabid favor? That's a Trump rally, no? She gained rabid hatred and death threats, but, sure, ignore the peril she placed upon herself by testifying under oath. You know, a thing that many elder, white GOP "statesmen" seem to not want to do with the same fact set.

    Bad logic but at least you're off the porch running with the big dogs. :)
     
  22. Mr. Deez

    Mr. Deez Beer Prophet

    That's pretty weak logic. Obviously, I'm not making a GOP v. Democrats comparison. I'm comparing Trump (who's gone from power) with the Democratic machine (the party but also the entire media, academia, huge parts of the lobby, most advocacy groups etc.), which has been entrenched in DC since the 1930s. There's a reason why Democrats dominate in DC elections and pretty much all surrounding area elections. It's a metropolitan area of wealthy Democrats. Those are the people whose favor she earned, and that's bigger than Trump.

    Never said any of them were statesmen. Trump is a hack who was rightly impeached. The problem is that you think his negative characteristics mean there's something good about those pursuing him after he's gone. They don't.

    Neither of you should be defending the acts of any of these clowns. He was wrong to lie for 2 months to get people into a frenzy. The Democrats are wrong to try to brazenly exploit it long after it became moot to divert attention away from their own failures. There are no good guys in this.

    He didn't lie, bud. How can you sit here and see what we saw on election night and think that Biden got 81M votes?

    Wait a tick, the "Impeachment" was because of the Zelensky phone call. What lies happened for 2 months that he was impeached for?

    Because we had a crapload of mail-in balloting that made it very easy for every dumbass in the country to vote.
