Just Wait Till He Gets Through With it (About Last Night, cont.)

Groucho was funny, though sadly predictive, about the Fourth Reich.

We bring this up as it was another night of telling people that Joe Biden’s America will be worse that Lord Damp Nut’s America. And I think we are all left wondering, well, what is he doing about any of it?

The AP:

“As he laid out his case for reelection, President Trump deployed a powerful, and familiar, political tactic: fear.

“In a tradition-defying convention address delivered from the White House, Trump painted a grim portrait of violence in American cities run by Democrats and populated by voters who largely oppose him. Though his depictions were at odds with the full reality on the ground in those cities, Trump held himself up as the last best hope for keeping lawlessness from reaching suburban communities — the same communities where he needs to stem the tide of voters turning against the Republican Party.

“Fear has long been wielded by politicians, in part because it works.”

Prznint Stupid “profoundly accepted” (his words) the Republican nomination before a future super-spreader crowd of un-distanced and un-masked mouth breathers from Possum Hollar on the White House’s South Lawn:

Stupid delivered an hour-plus broadside of lies against handsome Joe Biden as he tried to frame the 2020 Goat Rodeo as a choice rather than a referendum on his fascistic first term. (See why I used the song from Duck Soup at the top?)

And what is the agenda? In his own words:

“But so I think, I think it would be, I think it would be very, very, I think we’d have a very, very solid, we would continue what we’re doing, we’d solidify what we’ve done, and we have other things on our plate we want to get done.”

The highlight on Twitter was that Mel wore a dress that was essentially a green screen:

Twitter was full of photoshops of her gown, some more clever than others.

Last word to Vox(!):

 “It’s a moment that encapsulates what amounted to a week of gaslighting on Covid-19 by Trump and the Republican convention — an attempt to make America think that a president who had so clearly failed was in fact a victory for the US.”

Paraphrasing:  was a screed / Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, / Signifying nothing.

    What is becoming tiresome and gross is that none of the overrated stenographers within the failed beltway media are going to point out to fat nixon that his specter of a doom and gloom Biden presidency is already here and happening due to his incompetence, corruption and indifference. I guess they are still waiting on the presidential ‘pivot’ while he chastises them for the entertainment of idiots. FFS

    How fitting that Con-con ends with a superspreader rally. It will be interesting to check up on the health of attendees over the next couple of weeks.

      It’s one of the reasons I wanted to include Dan Gilmore’s insight above the Andrea Mitchell quote. There’s a reason I want our failed political press to be held accountable. They’ve normalized the bullshit, and for them to pearl clutch now is just more BS.

        Watch Sherrod Brown school Andrea Mitchel on “rust belt”. At the end she digs for China to “explain” her reference.

    Biden should respond to Trump’s demand for a drug test by saying “No, because then the story would become the President’s pregnancy!”

    More like “profoundly defected”. What a vocabulary.

    And…Daniel Dale’s fact check was awesome. All networks should do this every time the taint tumor opens his mouth.

    I trust yous guys know the real reason Trump held a political pep me-me-me rally on the Whitehouse lawn. It is currently the only place in Murka that doesn’t prohibit large gatherings of insane clown shitgibbons. Thanks, Trump Virus.
