Social media has been full of the Democrats talking about the Stormy Daniels affair with the joy and sniggers of three-year-olds who just discovered theres a word for what you do on the potty.
This is predictable and not at all upsetting, because if these people had any political sophistication and understanding of history, they wouldnt support a party that is more fully behind the full-on communism that has killed a hundred million human beings in the 20th century and bids fair to at least an attempt to continue its work in the twenty-first. Also, most of them have the understanding of history of Occasional Cortex and think that politics is a sort of game. All theyre really doing is signaling their membership in the tribe.
All well and good, but there is an aspect of this that worries me: they actually expect laffaire Stormy to change our minds about Trump. And from their polls snork, giggle, remember 2016? theyre absolutely convinced theyre winning.
This worries me because it tells me just how far from reality their mental processes have gone, particularly their image of us.
Look, I dont deny we have any number of religiously conservative people. Note, these are not just religious or conservative, but people whose only interest in politics is that their religion tells them to be conservative. And maybe those people really can be turned off voting for a president because he is sinful. (Raises eyebrow.) Except that, you know, all of those I personally know have accepted that the president as sinful and imperfect as he is has been the vehicle for something else.

Yep. Here is the point:
The Left doesnt get the desperation, or the degree of desperation most of us feel. Being as innocent of economics and history as a duck is of astronomy, they dont get the grave peril the whole country stood and still stands in. They dont understand that the world is not one of unicorns and rainbows.
Their pig ignorance of the world and their smug and stupid imagined superiority over the rest of us dont allow them to know what theyre doing.
Seems like the author is a Bonnie Tyler fan, too.
Ping list ping.
I especially liked the penguin sex differences.
Because were desperate. Because a president who loves America is better than the one who hates it, and because the socialist/communist (remember the USSR called itself socialist. The difference is one of degree and the sort of fiddly proprietorship on paper stuff only they care about, just like only penguins care about penguin sex differences) madness is so strong in the Democrat party that anyone who opposes them is better than anyone they run.
Because the next Democrat president might be the last president of a free America, and then we will have to shoot our way out of socialism.
We have our last president now. Make the best of it.
The Rats seem to beleive that only powerful, wealthy people can resist. It never occurred to them that those pathetic people in flyover land actually have access to millions of little ways to throw sand in the gears. So this really is The Last President. What the media has done to this country pretty much precludes it ever functioning again.
Maybe this is the way "religious" conservatives see this, but it is dead wrong as far as constitutional conservatives. If we voted for folks because of what they said, we would still be voting for Paul Ryan and Jeb! Get real. We are way past the gab,gab, gab fool me 17 times level of politics.
When I voted for Trump I wasn't spinning any cylinder and taking my chances. I, speaking only for myself, want not words, but action, and I voted for the man, not because of what he said, but because of what he had done. Getting the stuff done that he got done and the deals done that he got done speaks volumes. A man who builds buildings knows the difference between steel, concrete, digging foundations, engineering and architectural plans on the one hand and process, paperwork and regulation on the other. The one results in a product you can sell or use, the other is just a waste of oxygen and worse, good money that could have hired someone to make something or do something. There is one thing that Trump said that did impress me - that the Iraq invasion was a bad deal. It was the worst we could possibly have made because it was a one-sided lose deal aside from some DC cronies who have made a bundle of the thing. There was no upside. There was no win-win/lose-lose or win-lose bargain to be had. It was just one-sided lose. The American people lost. We lost treasure, we lost lives, and if things continue going the wrong way, we maybe lost our country.
That's why I voted for Trump the man - you know, the guy in the ring.
These so-called right-wing hand wringers - oh, maybe he is a good fighter but he's got mud on his face, or this version, well he's got mud on his face, but we will accept him, for the time being because he is fighting - are the reason conservatism has been on the ropes for so many years. The left is not making this stuff up about a genuine conservative weakness and this article just goes to prove it.
Dammit. Trump is a good fighter because he has mud on his face, and despite that and the catcalls from the left because of the catcalls from the right, he kept fighting. As the article said, many revered saints were far from perfect. There is the old saying good judgment is the result of experience and experience is the result of bad judgment. And that is probably why the saints persevered for causes and in the face of odds that any so-called "saintly" person would have ran from.
The General who won the Civil War was Grant. He drank, wasn't a perfumed prince, etc. etc. There is a lesson in this, a really harsh lesson the right needs to learn and real fast or we won't have a country. Holier than though hasn't cut it for a long time, but we get holier than thou Hillarys and Bushes because we like holier than thou. Grow up. I think most of us have.
Youre describing ignorance and are giving the benefit of the doubt. Some.
Vicious, eyes open evil is their norm.
PTrump’s our last stand.
......and because millions of Christians who have watched their beloved country slide into a vile wormhole because of crooked politicians with their fake faith and 5 pound Bibles ( Clinton and others)....
.....are truly OK....more than OK ........REJOICING!!!....that we have a real PATRIOT in the White House and are willing, even indulging his colorful language ...
...because he tells it like it is and is doing something about it!!!!!!
AND HE LOVES AMERICA.......AND HE LOVES US!
“What the media has done to this country pretty much precludes it ever functioning again.”
Why should any of them need a college degree if that’s all they want to do for a living? Take away their degrees, especially if they came from public universities.

Great post Andy.
And to those who share a negative view of the future, I will point out that President Trump pledged his ‘Life, his Fortunes, and his sacred Honor’ to run for a thankless position where he is incessantly attacked by the Democrats and media.
He could have instead stayed home, played golf and enjoy his grandchildren and wife. Instead he jumped into the fray and a world in which people get beaten up for wearing a MAGA cap.
My previous tagline said: President Trump isnt our last chance. President Trump is THEIR last chance.
Read it now, there may not be a later if the leftist thugs take over
