I’m glad I’m an independent.

It would suck to be married to either party.

LMAO, what difference does it make? The same issues still exist and you're left with the same choices we have. What does being an "independent" mean, anyhow? Are you really considering voting for the republican? :rofl:

Are you for M4A or against it?

Are you for the Green New Deal or are you against it?

Are you for police reform or against it?

Sure, there’s no other real choice. But now you have me considering writing in Pop/Kerr.

Someone finally treated the Lincoln Project cats, exactly how I think they should be treated.



I don't mind them cashing in on anti-Trump animosity, it's certainly helpful. But I just hope people don't forget where these grifters came from. The praise they've gotten feels a bit much to me.

I've always just seen them as a tool for a job. The enemy of my enemy, etc...

I respect the strategists behind them, and think the Dems should definitely be taking a look at bringing them into the fold. Sure, they are mercs who won campaigns for some real awful elected officials, but I prefer that to Dem strategists who lost campaigns for good people. Dems need more of a killer instinct.

It's like when the Knicks finally got Kenyon Martin.

I don't have to be told who they are. Rick Wilson was dog whistling for the GOP before he became a Never Trumper.

I'm glad they're helping to defeat Trump, but there is no reason to believe they won't go back to hustling for right wingers again or at least will be for sale to the highest bidder in the future

Their ads are well done. Trump deserves the worst to be thrown at him so these guys are the best to do it. The GOP has been slaying Democrats with attack ads for decades.

I mean, killer instinct is the most accurate word here. Keep the dudes at arms' length imo. It's not like they just got Bush elected and everything else just happened. They were there in that administration while lies got us into Iraq, a surveillance apparatus formed and waterboarding was happening at black sites. Just feels Faustian to me, bound to backfire when these fools have enough cash to try and influence things down the line.

The old thread got too long after some very aged posters started duking it out.

And that's all that I ask. As long as everyone remembers, these dudes weren't just running attack ads and the attack ads were built on fear mongering towards marginalized people pretty damned often. They're useful, but they're not idiots. They know what they're doing and will turn on a dime. Let them work Trump over, but keep them as far away from having voices and influence with our side of things as possible after that.
