Either way, it's just stupid.

they all know their careers depend on keeping the flock from giving creedence to anyone who might say anything bad about the cult.

wj, I can't help being interested in exactly why you think he wouldn't be around to see it.

Suppose it comes down to a real civil war; not just occasional individuals or small groups running amok, but something like a real war. The rational course, for those being attacked, is to strike first at those who demonized them, and called for violence against them. That is, those like Gorka.

Yup, that makes sense. Those who've been around these parts for a while know my opinion of Gorka, but I feel like re-affirming it: only in this insane looking glass world we currently inhabit could any significant number of people believe a buffoon like Gorka to be a highly educated foreign affairs specialist, or (the same subset of people) Trump to be a brilliant billionaire deal maker. I keep expecting that one day we'll revert to reality, then wondering if so much damage will have been done that a sane reality will be irrecoverable. Jaded is not the word.

I wish we had Brett Bellmore back with us. I'd like to hear which side he, personally, would take in Civil War Two.

Failing that, I'd settle for the views of the wishy-washy right-wingers we still have among us. The Gorkas and the Bannons and the Digenovas would surely like to know also.

Brett was on record as catching the first flight outta here if and when things got hot.

Assuming I'm one of the "wishy-washy right-wingers".... 🤔

No way I'm on, or anywhere near, a side with Gorka and/or Bannon on it. Less familiar with DiGenova, but he too sounds like someone whose absence (from the polity, and probably the genome) would be a plus.

wj,

Rest assured: in my vocabulary, "conservative" is not the same as "right-winger", wishy-washy or otherwise.

"Right-wingers" are the people who, in a US presidential election between Bernie Sanders and Vladimir Putin, would vote for Putin. "Wishy-washy right-wingers" would abstain. "Conservatives" would not.
