Boring sidebar: she lived above me for about 3 years at Ole Miss. We did a dumb university radio show together. This was back when she was called John and was a popular person on campus. Then she transitioned and it did a lot of good regarding a lot of students’ views of trans people because it didn’t diminish her popularity at all. This was approaching 20 years ago, so it was pretty progressive at a southern university for a popular personality to be an accepted trans person.

So then I googled to find out who was a better golfer between Trump and Biden. I found one site that says Trump's handicap is 2.8. So this am I was watching the news and they showed Trump taking a swing. I'm calling horsefeathering [expletive] on his 2.8 handicap. That swing was one of a beginner level golfer. He looked up on his shot and didn't follow through at all.

It's why you will never see him play anywhere where his game can be monitored. He's a lying sack of horsefeathers.

Hahah. 2.8?? That’s Trump. Don’t just lie. Lie big.

I would be lying if I said the rhetoric from Republican leaders didn’t make me nervous. At best they are stringing along the militant base.

Meh. All they're doing is yammering about "counting every vote." Let 'em count horsefeathers as much as they want; it's not changing.

Yup, Lincoln Project raised millions, didn’t move the needle at all, and set themselves up for a Kasich or Romney run in 2024. They might prove useful ONLY if they split the GOP voters into moderates and Trumpers, but I don’t hold out hope for that

FFS...this. I don't do Facebook, but my gf does for professional reasons. She says her feed (is that what it's still called?) is full of "Libs blowing things out of proportion. It wasn't that bad. Time to get along with Republicans, move on."

Well, I’d like to hope that they can get along better, but if the two Senate runoff seats get flipped, horsefeathers em. Show the country what real leadership looks like and get things done. If we don’t, I’m worried the Left might lose their base and likely the people who got on board because they were anti-Trump.

Ohio didn't move an inch, either. Kasich and LP are both worthless grifters.

Got into an argument with my Mom last night who claims to be an independent but has never supported a Democrat, and the key takeaway was she voted for Trump because she was a single-issue voter. What was that issue? Was it abortion? No. Gun control? No. Immigration? No. Healthcare? No. Economy? No. COVID? No.

Was it the way the Democrats treated Brett Kavanaugh during his confirmation hearing? Yes.

The red media bubble is so much more pervasive and unpenetrable than we think.

Yep. McConnell has said when you have power, you get to do what you want. So if the Dems are lucky enough to have all 3, follow that same playbook. And if they don’t get the Senate, do as much as you can for two years and hope it flips in 2022.

Damn.

What can we do when GOPers/Trump supporters/right wing curious don't care about issues more than perceived grievance? horsefeathers

That first time after the election in 2016 when I heard my dad say something that clearly showed he hated Trump was a great moment. Growing up neither of my parents were vocally political, they voted but it was never clear that they leaned either way, but given his age and having lived rural his whole life I had my fears he would at least be ok with him but probably not a fanatic.

While not foolproof, the fact that he's been UAW since he was 18 should have at least given me a hint.

I don't even think that would get off the ground, because I doubt that Manchin would vote for abolishing the filibuster, and he might not be the only one. And even if they do, they are still only going to allow other bills to go so far.

can we now admit that tuesday evening was horsefeathering terrifying? I was actually looking forward to it, then it started and it was like "oh my god, why the horsefeathers was I so confident about this"
