Everything they wanted to perceive as decadent and weak has proven strong and brave; everything they wanted to represent as fearsome and powerful has revealed itself as brutal and stupid.
so much seething about Ukraine winning the propaganda war from the “national conservative” right, it’s quite revealing

"The general feeling among Republicans I spoke with is that the RNC would go to almost absurd lengths to avoid allowing Cheney on the same debate stage as Trump." Sharp @RonBrownstein look at possible Cheney 2024 bid and how GOP would work to prevent it: theatlantic.com/politics/arc…

One-third the country is bad enough, but it's not the "half the country" the Trumpers keep talking about

Somehow it's scarier though when the Flyers fans chant it
Replying to @davidfrum
We were chanting “Let’s go Rangers” before the Flyers even existed. Just sayin’.

I am disgusted by the outrageous remarks made by Palestinian President Mahmoud #Abbas. For us Germans in particular, any relativization of the singularity of the Holocaust is intolerable and unacceptable. I condemn any attempt to deny the crimes of the Holocaust.

One of the things I have admired about Liz Cheney's conduct over the last few months is the absolute lack of drama with which she has pursued her chosen course--there has been no grandstanding or glee-- just sober patriotic grief.

Liz Cheney was rejected both by GOP voters and by GOP elected elites. I hope this puts an end to the absurd claim that it's the Democrats' fault that the Republican party keeps nominating extreme pro-Trump candidates. Kevin McCarthy led GOP repudiation of GOP redemption

2 million encounters on the border with illegal migrants in one year. Hundreds of thousands released into the country with no effective supervision. Biden's border policy is a scandal - expect to hear more about it this fall. Only @PostOpinions! washingtonpost.com/opinions/…
