I don't think that's quite it. Sometimes you're in the con for so long that you start to believe some of it yourself. As Mark Twain said, if you always tell the truth then you don't need to remember anything.

I agree there's a mix of many things, including what's in that article.

But people with their mental faculties could pull off all of it. People who insist on tweeting themselves further into a hole and hiring elderly media whores to represent them cannot.

I think it's charitable to think that a younger Trump would be handling this much differently.

You're fond of that analogy, but isn't the issue of the day that the folks from Minneapolis decided to line up their army on the North Dakota border and start shooting people on the other side?

And while there are many disturbing things about Israel and Palestine today, including Israel's attacks on Gaza, the anti-Semitic speech from Abbas is pretty disturbing, too.

Anti-Semitism and anti-Israeli ideas are used routinely by Middle Eastern governments to appeal to their people and distract from things the governments don't want to talk about. Hard to tell whether they believe it or are exploiting it (mostly likely a mix), or which would be worse.

Actually the Minneapolis people send planes and helicopters into ND to retaliate for the missiles. Chicken/Egg. No one who doesn't know what that is like knows what that is like.

Too true. No one is ever responsible for the bad things they do. They are just defending themselves and/or retaliating for past grievances.

Welp, Paul Ryan can't get *anything* done in Congress.

When you say it, you own it.

You can do chickens and eggs back to Exodus, but the problem is that it's pretty hard to justify the Deuteronomical Ban in today's world, so if you get back that far, the Canaanites win.

I want to see what iron 'stache does with this in his race against Paul Ryan.

It is. But he’d have attracted better than D List celebrities, thugs, and has beens to assist him. Rudy’s arguably clinically demented... Or perhaps so pathologically powermad he thinks he can invite successful impeachment, stage a coup in a weak moment during the trial, and ascend to the pedestal of American Mussolini.

Trump and Co. spoke truth to the old, scared, and crazed, and then sailed into dementia with them.

There is no solution in the Isreali/Palestinian situation. It’s ultimately Balfour’s creation. And as with British cars, it’ll be eternally “in for service.”

Israel/Palestine = Giant geopolitical Range Rover

You have to be mad.

Trump and Co. haven't met truth. They don't know what truth is. They've been lying their asses off since the 70s and long ago forgot how to even recognize something close to the truth.
