The organized Left in the US basically spends all of its time slitting each others throats for being insufficiently ideologically pure while the Right seems to have lost any and all semblance of a coherent mission statement beyond supporting the con man they elected president.
Brilliantly summarized! That's pretty much it in a nutshell.
It's not denial...I'm just very selective about the reality I accept.

Are Dragons a metaphor for socialism or for burning everything down? Because, either way, yes.

This isn't a direct reference to the above but I kind think it's like on the Simpsons when everyone voted for Sideshow Bob. One policy might be deploreable but you live with it because there's one policy that is more "in line" with your thinking and you accept the collateral damage, even if it might be great. Let's say hypothetically you get your tax cut but the country as a whole is worse off for dozens of other reasons.

Sure, but to sort of bring it back to what LK I think was getting at if that "deplorable" policy that you're more or less willing to accept for your tax cut is, say, kids in cages at the border or the repeal of Roe v. Wade or whatever then regardless of how someone might define themselves with regards to issues of race or women's rights or gay rights or whatever that their tacit support is still support.

No argument here!

I could live to be a million years old and I would never even slightly understand people who think it's ok to punish kids for the circumstances their parents have put them in.

What is he reading???

Quote
President Donald Trump on Monday announced a new round of sanctions on Iran, including measures targeting its supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei.

At least, that’s the name in the White House transcript.

When he spoke, however, Trump said “Ayatollah Khomeini,” aka Ruhollah Khomeini, who led the country from 1979 until his death in 1989:

Perhaps he went a tad too far, not in very good taste.
 I understand why DeAdder did that and in a way, he was right.

Not in good taste? What are you talking about? This is a reflection of the administration to a tee.

Not in good taste as far as some people see it — his (DeAdder’s) firing — and those who did the firing.

To me, the description (cartoon) was on point perfectly.
