MadManI imagine its the start of voter intimidation tactics. Its what you do when your ratings are among the lowest for any presidency in history.

I think it's what you do when the demographics of the nation are trending against you as a party.? This move is bigger than Trump, it's something the Republicans have been working on for decades.

Oh yeah. Gotta work on ending gerrymandering and voter ID laws, five years ago.

PaquitoThat's a pretty weird thing for you to do, since I pointed out exactly why it was obvious.

I saw where you pointed out something about not wanting to write a detailed post about it.

PaquitoFYI: Greenwald was contacted by the guy who made the fakes, and he verified things that were unique about the copy Buzzfeed got that no one could have known without seeing it.

Well, it's adorable that Greenwald is getting chummy with the forgery troll, and thanks for verifying that the Buzzfeed copy was unique from the one Maddow received. Maybe Glenn can point out to his new source that he's a piece of garbage.

Before we side step the main issue however, I should reiterate that blaming Maddow's overzealousness on pursuing the Russia story by using the example of her refusing to bite scoop bait is still irrevocably dumb. A lot of Russian skeptics are trying to save face right now.

Someone call Thomas Nagel. Janson Jinnistan knows what it's like to be a bat... shit crazy Glenn Beck fan. Seriously, it's bizarre to see just how warped your interpretation of all this is.

Also, You keep using that word, skeptic. I do not think it means what you think it means.

Yes, there's nothing insane about interpreting my defense of Maddow's warning other news outlets of forgeries being disseminated as equivalent to being a Glenn Beck fan.

I imagine you don't think about much at all, but to clarify, in this context, I mean that sufficient evidence to date should put a lot of Greenwald's criticism over the "hysteria" to rest. At a certain point, it's his denial that's most hysterical.

Considering how exceptionally petty this issue is, I don't doubt your desire.

For the pedantic: I get to have healthcare I can afford which covers services I use.

Chris Cillizza's AMA is going so bad, you should CTRL+F to find the Washington Post's account throwing him a lifeline.

How does it feel to be the real word [sic] version of Tim Messenger from Hot Fuzz?

You even look like him, too.

I don't understand why they don't run with my idea of secretly poisoning everyone who applies for Medicaid.

Hey Chris,
How come you're putting more effort into finding the least critical questions to respond to than you have into being a good journalist over the entire span of your career?

I am not happy that Ann Coulter stumbled into a self-sustaining publicity machine and I am also too weak to resist it.

Jesus, do you know what the running cost of that would be? Most fast acting neurotoxins are in short supply, and expensive. And that's not even taking into account body removal and disposal. I mean...at least put them in forced labor camps where they can pay off their debt to society, only after which they can be dropped kicking and screaming into a grave they themselves dug.

According to a recent PPP poll, only 45% of Trump voters believe that Trump Jr. had a meeting with Russians.

I am curious how much of that response is "Fuck you poller. Trump is awesome!" despite knowing the correct answer. Unfortunately, I suspect it's not even the bulk of it.
