Did Trump endorse him?

Of course if one of his daughters did admit to enjoying such an experience he would probably disown her as both “damaged goods” and a slut to boot.

Who implied otherwise?

I used to think “let them run their extremists, it will scare away everyone but the die-hard GOP voter.”

Then Trump came along.

Even when the extremists lose their participation in the process pushes the Overton window ever farther to the right.

The bad news is that a Republican has to be the vilest of scum-sucking bottom feeders to lose an election in a red district.

The good news is that there are plenty of Republicans like that.

Not Boing Boing or anyone here, rather…

This swing, Bonier suggested, “may be an early indicator of the electorate reaching a breaking point with Republican extremism.”

If he had stuck with dog whistling racist BS instead of shouting Q nonsense, he likely would’ve won. This district is in a conservative part of the state, not a “conservative” part of the state. I guess the MAGA types can’t tell the difference anymore.

Too bad. /s

Because—comical photo of a screwed-up facial expression aside—it relates to the actual source material that Boing Boing is referencing and linking to. Any implication otherwise, I believe, was never stated nor intended. This has now gotten quite far off topic.

But it is a start and an inspiration. The SCOTUS leak is an opportunity for even the most weak willed Democrats to hammer Republican opponents.

“The GOP wants women to be slaves”

Don’t be ridiculous; everything is terrible, we’re all screwed no matter what, and so there’s no point in fighting, or even trying to resist, ever…
