    I agree, it was a ‘valley girl’ charm school reunion.

    I get the sense that the large segments of the democrat coalition is unraveling. I see things like blexit, Jexodus and the walkaway campaigns becoming major irritants to the democrats. Right now they’re small marginal things, but I can see the democrats really blowing these movements up with their rhetorical overkill.

    If the nominee isnt someone who genuinely energizes the black vote, I dont think they have a hope. The problem the democrats will have, is that they believe that Kamala Harris is that candidate, but I think her history as a prosecutor may well trump her demographics.

    I think that a “rule” is in order. If “Kat Timpf” appears in a title, the comments should include this masterful rant oration of magnificently articulated righteous indignation …

    Kat Timpf on Gutfeld … the best GOP platform … EVAH … in 1:23!

    (my heart be still …)

    Kat and the guys should be ashamed of, once again, repeating liberal talking points. 

    John McCain‘s death was expected, and obviously some of the funeral arrangements were made beforehand. Evidently Trump felt he had extended an olive branch, but McCain and his family had spurned it. 

    Robert Heinlein defined an “honest politician“ as “one who stays bought“. McCain was all too comfortable with running as a conservative and then voting as a liberal. 

    If you believe military virtues must necessarily convert into political virtues, let me tell you about this German corporal with a chestful of medals.

    And he’s up there, what’s that? Hawaiian noises?
    He’s bangin’ on the bongos like a chimpanzee
    Oh, that ain’t workin’, that’s the way you do it
    Get your money for nothin’ and your chicks for free

    Oh no. I guess I should have listened before commenting. You mean Kat succumbs to this McQueeg nonsense? Sure, don’t speak ill of dead but don’t lionize his record. He was a fake conservative.

    I think you’re right. Trump thought he was offering an olive branch by permitting the funeral arrangements. I can see how the McCain family may feel entitled to these arrangements, and didnt think it was necessary to invite or thank the president for it. I am hoping this is peak Trump pique.

    That certain German corporal or Gefreiter is positively disreputable but in all fairness, he did have political virtue – he followed through on rhetoric and promises.

    Sneering at Trump for supposedly not realizing a dead guy can’t say thanks was only a brief interlude.

    I love Kat, but the fact remains, she has some silly ideas. For example, on the Gutfeld show she disagreed with building a wall; instead, she would end all entitlements. Even Reagan sought merely to slow down their growth so they didn’t strangle the economy.

    It sounds like she needs to gain further wisdom from a wise older mentor.
