Join Jim and Greg as they welcome the news that Biden’s selection of Kamala Harris is having very little impact on the presidential race. They also roll their eyes as Hillary Clinton suggests to the convention yet again that she really won the election and Barack Obama, of all people, says we need a president who will faithfully defend the Constitution. And they react to the news that former White House official and Trump 2016 campaign honcho Steve Bannon is under indictment for allegedly defrauding a charity supposedly funding a border wall.

    The real question is, “Will Joe Biden give us another great phrase, like ‘lying dog-faced pony soldier’?”

    Greg, Greg, Greg. Obama and the others aren’t the only ones who get things wrong. It’s the Democrat Party. Democrat Convention. Democrat nominee(s). etc. NOT DemocratIC. Please try to do better.

    As much as I love the guff you give, the official name is “The Democratic Party of the United States of America.”

    You can read it in their Charter & Bylaws. That doesn’t mean they are small-d democratic, just that it is their name. You can change your name to King Ked. It wouldn’t make you a king.

    Bob Dole was good at saying Democrat Party. It got under their skin.

    That’s because they want people to believe that THEY are democratIC, and we’re not.

    They chose the name back when they still supported slavery. Wait, I mean back when they still supported actual chattel slavery.

    If the ic is so important to them, let’s just call them the ic – or ick, or icky – party.

    Kamala Harris has all the charisma, charm, and likeability as Hillary Clinton.

    Biden has chosen the Hillary Clinton “of color” as his running mate.

    She’s not QUITE as hateable as Hillary, yet, but she’s way behind in years. I’m sure she won’t disappoint.

    According to Peter Schweitzer, she’s crookeder than Hillary. The possibilities of corruption are uniquely high when one is a prosecutor.

    Inept Conservatives, Part XCVIII:

    Whenever Hillary boasts of her 3 million popular vote margin, we should point out:

    A. She had a 4 million vote margin in California and negative 1 million in the rest of the country.

    B. Two Republican Governors on the Libertarian Party ticket garnered 4.5 million votes.

    C. Do the arithmetic.

    These kinds of things should all be in the conservative “talking points” hopper along with pushing back against “the killing of” or even “the murder of” George Floyd and lots more, such as “a 30% increase in some government program when the Democrats wanted a 50% increase, is not a ‘cut’.”

    It is only accurate, right now, to speak of “the death of George Floyd”, not killing, murder, etc. Those are value calls not based on the current evidence.

    Quite so. And from what I’ve read so far, the end result should probably be “the suicide of George Floyd.”

    That might be coroner’s report official language wording. But as far as I’m concerned, people who take fentanyl to get “high” are suicidal.
