6. Media also full of foolish journalists willing to soft-pedal in exchange for 'access'.

Trump has been the most blatant about taking away 'access' and it really looks like the extortion that it is.

2. I've said the same thing about Ohio.

I constantly hear my Republican friends bitch about problems in state policy and blame it on the liberals. Funny how that works when you consider that the Repubs have controlled the Governor's seat, majority of the House and Senate, elected cabinet positions and state supreme court for the vast majority of the past 30 years.

3. Steve Jobs had nothing on Republicans when it comes to Reality Distortion Fields

Republicans have their own holographic alternative reality that they inhabit.

5. Let's not even mention . . .

. . . their tentacles in the media, religion, corporations, charities, America's economic paradigm for a few decades, etc. etc.

11. Exactly!

Why do you think immigration reform is at a stalemate? A big reason is that large corporations such as meatpackers and construction contractors exploit illegals and pay them next to nothing. If you ever really reform immigration policy the cash cow for these corporations would die.

And who do the leaders of these corporations support politically? Largely Republicans. So, despite their big-talking about building walls and all of that other BS, they don't represent parties that want to reform the status quo because it would likely cost them more to employ these people.

15. Trumpolini would be affected by this also.

He underpays his imported labor like a fiend and all of his promotional shit is made in China.

This carcass-wearing pig isn't fooling anyone with a brain stem. Trumpolini is no champion for labor.

12. Also

Democratic voters need to give down ticket races as much attention as they do presidential ones. Republicans do, that is how we end up with those numbers.

14. ...

I remember your posts: "Hillary, release the paid speech transcripts" (or else!) and "Will Hillary as President represent all of us, or only those who supported her in the primaries" among others. How nice to see the GOP getting some criticism at last!
