Looks Like 3rd Party Is The Only Safe Bet

Does any of this sound familiar to you, like it happened about 1 year ago?

I'm going to vote 3rd party because Al Franken supposedly, maybe, might have touched a woman's ass. That means Dems are just as bad as Rethugs. Since I would not vote for a Rethug, then the only sensible way to vote is 3rd party in 2018. Yes, that will show everyone just how I feel about the current state of politics!


3rd party voters showed us just how much they disliked some of the egregious things that HRC might have, could have, almost maybe done. They rewarded us with Dotard for their efforts at the polls. And now the assholes are at it again with their smear campaign.

There is definite proof Dotard committed sexual assault.
There is definite proof Roy Moore committed sexual assault.
There is definite proof Joe Barton was sending dick pics and threatening women with legal action if they exposed him.

Versus

No proof against Franken, only accusations. We already know Tweeden "spoke up" because she was manipulated.
Conyers settled two (almost three) years ago. It's worth investigating to see what money was used, but, please, don't try to put him in the same league as the rethugs listed above.

Simply put, the conservative narrative machine is hard at work cultivating "stories" about Dems to throw you off their own scent. Stop for a second. Take a whiff, and you will certainly smell their bullshit wherever you may be.

3. Your subject line and post are confusing. Are you advocating for a 3rd Party, or ???

5. The brain power here seems to be diminishing.

Too many seem to need the sarcasm thingy too perceive obvious sarcasm.

13. Yes, especially since Warpy seems to have disappeared.

She alone supplied half the cumulative IQ of the membership. I miss her and hope she is well.

12. If you followed the thread back,

you'd have seen that the post I responded to was questioning the OP.

6. No, that's sarcasm.

She's chewing us out for turning on each other instead of focusing on the myriad of ways the GOP is screwing us all.

It's the ol' tried and true divide and conquer strategy. If we're all wasting time tearing each other's throats out, then we won't notice the 'donor class' of billionaires and big corporations ripping us off and making our lives worse.

And you know....

It works.

As Cheetoh would say...

SAD.

7. He's not accused of "touching" "a woman's" ass

 

You lose credibility when you try to change what the women (4 so far) are accusing him of. We're not stupid, so don't try to insult our intelligence.

BTW, Franken hasn't denied any of the ass grabbing.


And, no one here is advocating third party for his seat.

8. Thank you for proving the need for my post

I absolutely love it when someone on DU takes everything so damned literally they can't see the forest for the trees.

Your response loses credibility when you choose to focus only on what I wrote as sarcasm and completely ignore everything else.

14. The tone deafness is getting worse, that's for sure.

And I thought dems were the folks of subtly, humor, sarcasm...

is right...

10. No, we should vote for Democrats

 

But we should also not shy away from calling out Democrats if they do something we find objectionable.

These two things can co-exist.

11. No.

It's not familiar.

It sounds like a pathetic effort at satire, but it doesn't work.
