Patently absurd. There are no children left after the Dems aborted them all.
 
Person "OMG did you hear!? They arrested a woman here in Texas for election fraud! She was switching stuff over to Biden!"

Me "Texas went for Trump in the end, you know."

Person "Well yes, but this proves there was fraud."

Me "Okay in Texas, maybe, who reported on it?"

Person "Ken Paxton arrested the woman after Project Veritas released a video."

Me "...."

Person "What?"

Me "You know what, no, sure, let's redo the Texas elections. I agree with you. Let's do it."

Person "That isn't what I meant! we don't need to change the outcome here."

Me "But if there was fraud here, shouldn't we redo it, just to be sure everything is fair? Isn't that what you were screaming about for weeks?"

Person "...."

Me "...."

Person "Why can't you just stop being an asshole."

Me "I will stop being an asshole when you stop being an idiot."

“We probably could have had a swearing-in and inauguration later after we got this virus behind us a little bit. Again, we’re talking about Washington, D.C.,” Alabama senator Tommy Tuberville said in an interview.

No, the inauguration cannot wait for the pandemic to be over. Not only does the constitution set the date, but it's unlikely the pandemic will end as long as Dolt45 is still in control.

There really is no limit to how stupid Republicans can be, is there?

TBF, his idea of a proper penalty for rape is a 1-game suspension.
 
As a Jew, I find it ironic that Christians seem to like our part of the book more than theirs.
Your part of the book has a lot more vengeance, smiting, and punishment. The second half is all compassion and forgiveness, and no one signs up for that.

Desperate, not stupid. They're at that "But now I'm calling you on my new Comcast digital voice home phone service" stage of desperation, the stage where they begin to seriously contemplate courses of action that seem like they came straight out of a John Landis movie.

You sure about that? I think Disney might own some part of Fox the network now. But I'm too tired to dig right now. It's a school night.
Disney had to sell most of Fox Sports to Sinclair Media in order to avoid an anti-trust smackdown from the government. So...
Fox Sports = Sinclair Media
Fox News = Fox News Media (Murdoch family)
Fox Channel, Movies, Fx, Nat Geo, etc. = Disney

The GOP is now offended that dog shelters exist.


GOP doesn't understand that dogs have always been journalism.png


Yes, yes it is, and we love it! It's 2020 and the vast majority of the country are looking forward to happy news stories about raising money to take care of dogs. We don't want to have a constant flow of sewage out of the White House any more! We like to have news stories that are about good things happening.
 
“There is a strong emphasis on the manly, occasionally to the point of ridiculing the ‘wimp.’”
And toxic masculinity confirmed!
So y'all have heard about "Toxic Masculinity," but what about "Hegemonic Masculinity?"
what exactly is hegemonic masculinity? [...It's] based on a societal-level perception of the appropriate role of males. Specifically, it views the traditional role of males—namely that they're the dominant focus of society—as how society should be ordered. [...] In this view, women aren't responsible for enhancing feelings of masculinity in men; instead, they're expected to help reinforce the societal order.
The article then goes on to suggest that this appears to be a likely explanation for the Motivated Reasoning that keeps Trump supporters supporting Trump even when confronted with all the [logical] reasons not to, and there are survey results which would seem to back this up.
the researchers were able to gauge both support for Trump and the participants' feelings on masculinity, racism, and sexism. The researchers started doing a series of regressions, controlling for affects like the participants' political affiliations, gender, and so on, before getting into the meat of the analysis. [...] That analysis showed that the sort of prejudices you might expect—sexism, racism, and xenophobia—were associated with support for Trump. But even after those were adjusted for, hegemonic masculinity was still associated with support for Trump. This was true even though hegemonic masculinity was also associated with prejudices like sexism and racism that also drove support for Trump—it had its own effect independent of them.
[Hegemonic masculinity] predicted voting for and evaluations of Trump equally well for women and men, White and non-White participants, Democrats and Republicans, and across levels of education [,and] the association was far stronger than that for threat-focused masculinity.
