But it's pretty spot-on. It shows she's willing to do something she has absolutely no business doing - and that she is also very bad at it nonetheless.

Man.

I forgot how mother fucking sick I was of his fucking rambling idiocy.

He just sounds like such a piece of garbage, I will never understand how he managed to make so many people actually worship him. The amount of hate in the hearts of people, is what’s behind it - and it’s just deflating to understand that I’m of the same species as these complete idiot assholes.

This man likely sold secrets to foreign governments and he's allowed to campaign, raise money and speak with a megaphone to the cultists that hang on every word that comes out of his disgusting face. What in the actual fuck is happening?!

Honestly !

I’ve slipped into the pages of some ridiculously poorly written book…. that I would put down in five minutes because it was so unbelievably stupid….

But this is fucking actually happening.

Right?!

Apparently pledging and raising your arms is now a cornerstone element for the party? Trump had them doing this last night and now PA Governor candidate is doing it today. Where have I seen this before? :think:

They maintain deniability because slow-waving a hand in the air (reaching out for God during prayer and worship) has long been a charismatic-evangelical thing.

Of course erasing the line between a political event and a religious one isn't much better.

Well that certainly helps to explain the ease at which many of those arms were raised. And it also likely makes the jump to the next phase of this transition even easier!

Last night they were giving a Qanon salute, raising a "number one". It's reference to WWG1WGA. Trump was dropping heavy Qanon dog whistles.

I apparently don't run in the right circles and didn't realize raising your right hand with a #1 finger was in any way related to Q. I guess we can add that to the list of things ruined ("OK" hand sign, Hawaiian shirts, etc...)

Yeah, the whole QAnon phenomenon (from which Trump had kept a certain distance during his term) was beginning to fade after Biden actually took office and the mass arrests/executions of Democrats didn't transpire. Now that the Feds are getting closer to indictments, however, Trump has started explicitly endorsing QAnon slogans, memes, and theories wherever he can.

He's likely nudging his cult towards stochastic terrorism to disrupt the country and keep his ass out of prison.

If my Qanon flag-flying backyard neighbor starts doing this shit, I will be saluting as well, but it won't be with my #1 finger.

It's always lies to get in on the grift to pwn teh libs. Always.
Ohio GOP House candidate has misrepresented military service

Majewski’s account of his time in the military is just one aspect of his biography that is suspect. His post-military career has been defined by exaggerations, conspiracy theories, talk of violent action against the U.S. government and occasional financial duress.

Why would he? He already has a platform. He can be the crazy one on a somewhat normal network or the somewhat normal one on a crazy network. He is smart to stick with the former.

But you got Santelli to be the crazy rant guy already. At least he can sometimes be entertaining in his rants. Joe is just a mean crazy uncle under the delusion that he adorable and clever when in reality he's just an ass. So you hope he never makes it to holiday dinner but he's always there.

None of that looks like stuff they'd consider extreme or be ashamed of to hide and to me the single biggest head scratcher is "health care: American Life Expectancy has decreased two straight years representing the single largest downturn since 1943" Whose dumbass fault is that? Seriously. The people you are selling that to are the people you are trying to get to vote for you? Everything else is banking on what they've been saying and doing in the open for at least the two years.

It's not like they've been hiding it and it's a secret Pelosi uncovered because she's got her eye on their corruption. It's been aired since they took Supreme Court and filled it with "federalists". It's been mainstream and openly discussed since at least late spring of this year. Q-razy talk is barely radical for this GOP and something they barely shy from.

It’s been an increasingly avoided topic by many Republican candidates the last few months after they realized how unpopular it was. It’s also why there was a collective gasp out of Washington when Graham went on record about it. It was the first time a major political power had openly said that a federal ban on abortion was a goal.

The other thing that may hurt them is their goal to negate the work Biden did on reducing the cost of medicine. Another highly unpopular proclamation that I’m guessing many Republicans up for office don’t want out in the wild yet/at all.
