That's exactly my point over many posts.

In your monitoring thread she once wrote that Plump is her president, and the Republicans are her party. When I later pointed that out, she first admitted it, then demanded that I prove it. (She must have been hitting the sauce that night.) I'm sure she thinks she's clever--whether or not she does, like the Russians from the troll farm that we get here, she's come to realize that she need only hammer a particular point, and deceive the unwary. She has gotten a lot of undeserved sympathy, too. Lately, Nimh went after me for my remarks to her. I had pointed out that she had referred to the Democrats as "your party" when addressing someone else. Nimh said that my criticixm of her for that was a non sequitur. He's one of the sharper knives in the drawer, but
without the greater context, he doesn't see the pattern.

Lash's posts are toxic content, and it's not always recognized.

Excessive personal attack across several threads and several years, including mention of drinking to explain a rank lie he continues to tell about me.

If this isn’t considered against the rules, I will wallpaper this place with the same. I am tired of the one-sided treatment here. Either apply the rules to him, or expect me to return in kind.

I don’t see you demanding their tax returns. Why so one-sided?

@Lash,
Do you have a list of which candidates have released tax returns and which ones haven't? I didn't know that Sanders was resisting this disclosure; it seems sort of odd considering his socialist principles. I doubt that he really has anything to hide; if he's just reticent or embarrassed because he's got a substantial amount of wealth, he shouldn't be, as long as it was all come by legally. It gets hard to attack Trump for being secretive if our candidates behave the same way.

When even the NRA jumps on the right wing project to slime Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, that just provides further evidence they are very frightened of what this lady might do and be up the road.

Some part of this strategy is likely to be a predictable attack implying "Dems = Socialism!" They'll use this as the election approaches, particularly if Sanders is the nominee, in an attempt to dredge up old fears inculcated in the right wing mind. But it is AOC far more than anyone else who is now drawing attacks from the right.

Precisely. I'd be extremely surprised if he's hiding something here (other than perhaps the wealth held by he and wife) but he's got to get this done and the longer he delays the worse it looks.

Personally, when my mind turns to thoughts regarding MLK and how he might perceive and think about this present moment, the person I will turn to for an insightful take on King's mind and values will be first and foremost Laura Ingraham. She's a racial equality soul sister if there ever was one.

His enemies will go through the returns and magnify every little non socialist spec they can find.

I think that's happened, Edgar. But she is exceptional in talents and in work ethic. People like her don't spring up very often. If I was on the team of whoever becomes the nominee, I would certainly want to discuss naming her as a VP choice. But even if that doesn't happen, she'll be instrumental, I think, in inspiring and bringing out young voters.

Of course. That's just a given. But he inevitably must do this so all the more reason to get it done as soon as possible.

The people here who seem to think any Democrat will do, so long as it removes Trump, are playing into their hands. The long term objective has to be the prevention of Trump II. The radical Republicans - some are so radical, after the mold of Mitch McConnel - they have to be watching what Trump gets away with and learning that a smarter version of the man fits the bill for 2024. That's why only a real liberal should be nominated and why we should seek out more AOCs, instead of attempting to bar them from even running.

It has been obvious all along that was his objective. Glad it is being put into words for those who deny his evil plans.

This is a very important point and I think you've got it dead wrong. But I've been up since 1 AM and I'll take it up later.

Lash and I see eye to eye on more issues than not. It took me longer to go anti H Clinton, but for me it's a given the woman never deserved to have so many supporters in 2016.

I don't think that there are people who believe "any Democrat will do". That Democrat will have to win enough votes to 1) win the nomination and 2) go on to victory in November. "Any" Democrat can't do that. But the Democrat who does ought to be supported. If "progressives" are seen as instrumental in the candidate's victory, they will be heard and will have a part to play in the new administration, even if the winner is seen as more of a moderate. If the left wing of the party refuses to support the candidate and it wins, they will have effectively written themselves out of a constructive role within the party. And, of course, if they sit on their hands and the Trump party wins...well, I don't think I need to spell out the consequences.

Who's the "they" that I italicized in your comment?
