Friday Open Thread

“There are very few people who are going to look into the mirror and say, ‘That person I see is a savage monster;’ instead, they make up some construction that justifies what they do.”

    Yes, Trump still stinks.  And Carnholio is his shill.

    Stay upwind, my friends.

    I have stated my utter contempt for the despicable, deplorable, always predictable POS Cory Gardner since the grinning dimwit first announced his senate candidacy.

    From the very beginning, I've referred to him here repeatedly (and accurately) as a feckless, spineless, craven, cowardly, fraudulent, backsliding weasel and worm. The criminal con man from Koch Industries. Mike Coffman without the beady eyes, strange mumbling and weird push ups, and with far better taste in shoes.

    I can see now I've been much too soft on him.

      All that aside, DP, tell us how you REALLY feel about our junior senator…

      • DawnPatrol says:

        "You can't handle the truth!" /s 😉

        But seriously, my well of contempt for these weaselly, sniveling, lying, duplicitous, dishonorable right-wing scoundrels, here and in Washington, both politicians and their local trolls, is bottomless.

        If I truly wrote precisely what I feel toward them and their focused evil, I'd be banned.

    Россия вновь!

    Any word on how the big meeting went?

    • MichaelBowman says:

      TwoScoops™ blamed the black guy for doing nothing in retaliation for something that Donny says never actually happened, but which really could have been done by "anybody" (including, I gather, some bed-ridden 400-pound slacker in his mother's basement) – had something which was, in fact, really nothing, actually occurred at all – then TwoScoops™ meets with Vlad, who assures Donny that he was not one of those people who did something about nothing that had never actually occurred, so Donny accepts his non-apology, says he believes his denial, and decides to do nothing in retaliation for something that was really nothing at all.

      The two takeaways from this: all 17 agencies of our Intelligence Community are full of shit, and Barack Obama is to blame for that.

    To which Vlad probably said, 

    Вы неблагодарностью sock марионеточного

    Если упомянуть о том, что я вновь будет отпустить видео.

    I wonder what nobleness of character Gardner constructs to deflect looking in the mirror and seeing a savage monster intent on increasing the physical and financial suffering of tens of millions.  He probably believes he is doing God's will to wipe out the savings of the puny poor.

      That or he's making his Koch Masters happy.

      • Gilpin Guy says:

        or lining up his  lobbyist gig for after he votes for this savage monster of a piece of legislation.  I can totally see Cory as a smarmy lobbyist hawking his 'But it's freedom to not have health insurance' line.
