I’m not a Democrat or a Republican. What I’m against is the bullying coming from the right. Always from the right. Always. This is a flat-out attempt to ridicule the bullies and throw some light on the heroes. I've got lots to work with.

I don't own any of these images but the snark is all mine.

Cornel West: “He posed as a progressive and turned out to be counterfeit. We ended up with a Wall Street presidency, a drone presidency” →

"[Obama] always moves to the middle ground. It turned out that historically, this was not a moment for a middle-ground politician. We needed a high-ground statesperson and it’s clear now he’s not the one.

And so what did he do? Every time you’re headed toward middle ground what do you do? You go straight to the establishment and reassure them that you’re not too radical, and try to convince them that you are very much one of them so you end up with a John Brennan, architect of torture [as CIA Director]. Torturers go free but they’re real patriots so we can let them go free. The rule of law doesn’t mean anything.”

If gerrymandering clearly helps Republicans maintain the house, how does “both sides do it” rhetoric mean to dissenting conservative commenters?

liberalsarecool:

John Boehner, the highest ranking Republican, is from a gerrymandered safe district in Ohio.

Gerrymandering is the core of the GOP strategy.

"Both sides do it" is the weakest comment you can make while we are in a present-time gerrymandered House.

"Both sides do it" is Republican mayonnaise: it has no substance, holds their arguments together and smears the other side.
