DCCC Gets in on the Act

Not content to let Organizing for America politicize Thanksgiving, the DCCC has joined in. I just got this e-mail:

Jonah –

Let’s face it: we all have a crazy Tea Party relative (or two) who just loves bashing President Obama — even on Thanksgiving.

If you’re worried that your Thanksgiving table will start looking like the set of Fox & Friends, we’ve got just the thing for you: the DCCC’s 2013 Thanksgiving Cheat Sheet!

Don’t worry about printing it out — we’ll text it directly to your phone so you’ll always have the facts and stats you need to go up against all the nastiest Republican sound bites:

Enjoy — and have a great Thanksgiving!

Democrats 2014

P.S. Don’t have a cell phone? We’ve still got you covered. Get your printable cheat sheet here >>

I love the defensive tone here. While the Democrats are the ones who want Americans to check their iPhones at the Thanksgiving table for the latest instructions from the Ministry of Information, they’re posing as if someone else is to blame for it. If only those crazy tea-party relatives stayed home, it wouldn’t be necessary for us to create an army of agitprop-spouting drones. It’s the conversational equivalent of the doctrine of preemption. If it weren’t all so comically lame, it would be disturbing.

What Is Impeachment For?

W hat is impeachment for? Seems like a simple question. Constitutionally speaking, it also appears to have a simple answer: to cite and remove from power a president guilty of wrongdoing. Aye, there’s the rub. What sort of wrongdoing warrants removal from power? I’d wager that the flames of ... Read More

Beto Proposes to Oppress Church with State

Beto O’Rourke’s presidential campaign is within the margin of error of non-existence, but in his failure he has found a purpose: expressing the Democratic id. His latest bid for left-wing love came at a CNN forum on gay rights, where he said that churches that oppose same-sex marriage should have to pay ... Read More

The Breaking Bad Movie

I considered staying up until midnight last night to watch Netflix's two-hour Breaking Bad movie El Camino as soon as it went up, but I'm glad I didn't. It's fine, it's worth watching if you're a fan of the series (otherwise it'll mean nothing to you). But it doesn't answer any particularly compelling questions. ... Read More
