Yabbut, cognitive dissonance, disagreeing with yourself and changing positions are pretty much strategic for Trump-era Republicans, and the voters seem to love it.

The fact that there are black maga people who are provisionally accepted in some maga circles doesn't preclude people liking the Confederacy because of the racism. Ive known many, many racists that carve out "one of the good ones" exceptions.
I would also question that. I think in most cases, the white MAGAs would not be so tolerant of a black MAGA wanting to date their daughter.

Which isn't to say there aren't any who would be ok with that - some make broader exceptions for "the good ones". But pretty much always always going to be some line that they can't cross in terms of behavior around race, because you simply can't be a committed anti-racist and be a true believer Trumpist.

Random flight of fancy: Giant Dem sweep of the Senate, except McConnell. Then with 70 odd seats McConnell gets to watch his life’s work impeached one appointment after another, and can’t resign or retire, else the Dem governor appoint to Senate McGrath, or maybe if really cruel, a black Muslim BLM lawyer. And the tears of rage as Supreme Court Justice Barack Obama takes the seat previously held by Kavanaugh.

Where does the :ff: hive mind stand on this dude? I've been following him for a little while because his anti-Trump rants turn me on, but I have a feeling I might end up feeling really dirty for doing it.

Sounds like he's got some good ideas and some questionable ones.

The main reason I can't predict the hivemindset is this term "liberals". It seems - with this guy as with all Repubs - to be a general slur for leftists and centrists. In European terms, liberal is centrist and the USA does not have a left to speak of. (And in Australia the "Liberal Party" is pretty right-wing.) So I don't know what movements or what policies he's against.

What's distressing is that, no matter what he does, Trump seems to have a solid core at 41% of the electorate. WTAF!?

Given this:
Quote:
More than eight in 10 say that the peaceful protests that have spread throughout the nation following the death of George Floyd at the hands of Minneapolis police officers are justified.
Some 65 percent say the president’s response to recent protests has been more harmful than helpful. ...
Overall, 38 percent said they approve of the way Trump is handling the presidency
we can conclude that
at least 3% don't approve of the way Trump is handling the presidency, but are still going to vote for him;
at least 6% think his response to recent protests has been more harmful than helpful, but are still going to vote for him;
at least 21% think the protests are justified, but are still going to vote for him.

It's tribal.

Him, Rick Wilson, Bill Kristol, non morons, worth a read, and if there is any cosmic justice at all, on their death beds they will be visited by the souls of dead Iraqi children who visit upon those men unimaginable spiritual agony before they’re cast into the abyss.

Speaking of Tom Nichols, has anyone read The Death of Expertise? I just read the preface and it looks really good.
