He strikes me as the type of man that would wear make-up. (http://www.cnn.com/2017/10/30/politics/paul-manafort-russia-investigation-surrender/index.html)

Also George Papadopolous plead guilty to lying to the FBI in private. He plead on Oct 5th, and has presumably been squealing for Meuller ever since.

He was trumps foreign policy advisor early on in the campaign.

"After a long day of treason, it's Mueller time."

Can't take credit for that one but it made me laugh.

As much as I want this to be the beginning of something big, my confidence in our system to punish guilty parties in positions of power is at an all-time low. We'll see, I guess. However, this is classic RICO stuff. Start small, flip and move up the ladder.

Comey was a predictable bummer, but this is different. It's about money, the archetypal lead. If done thoroughly, it rarely fails.

Yep. The Italian mafia killed so many people, but tax fraud always proved to be the slow creeping death.

Sounds like the Manafort stuff has little to do with the Trump campaign at the moment. Mostly laundering his own money.

Papadop has been wearing a wire on and off for three months now

This is fucking awesome. Trump and co. are following the failing autocrat playbook to a tee. Lashing out at enemies with renewed vigor, pretending papadop just was a coffee bitch when there's tons of evidence to the contrary, reframing the accusors into enemies of the state, etc.

This is wild stuff

Indoctrination is strong. Thicker than blood. How do you convince someone thatwas raised to worship Robert E Lee and to look fondly on the confederacy, on the same pedestal as riding a harley davidson through the highway of freedom,

That the constitution of the confederacy was explicit in detailing that the negro of African origin was for slavery, forever? A constitution voted upon and ratified, after deliberation and debate...

I'm really talking more about people like my aunt from Detroit. She is in no way a confederate sympathizer or anything like that.

She just eats breitbart for breakfast lunch and dinner. Specifically the anti Clinton shit. It's like her life force, her hatred of that woman.

I just reminded myself I'm gonna email auntie the video of Milo doing karaoke with Richard Spencer in the crowd with his buddies throwing Nazi salutes. She'll hate that because milo even admits that's him in the video and says his extreme myopia made it so he couldn't see the salutes.

Boehner was the subject of a great piece that came out recently, where he blamed the fall of American politics on the new media, where people no longer have to read the news they don't like, the way they did a decade ago - now they can pick which news they get. And that's where you get the Breitbart feeders.

After Gen. Kelly’s statement on Robert E Lee and the civil war, we can officially date MAGA at 1860 (slavery), rather than 1960 (pre-civil rights).

In some sort of way it is actually becoming great again.

Mueller was and is a Republican, appointed by a Republican, but unlike the craven shitstains in the Senate he has chosen to uphold democracy.

I'd argue rank and file Republican politicians are more just your standard corporate oligarchs who use Jesus as their wedge issue to divide and conquer (as opposed to Democrats who are oligarchs that use identity politics as their wedge issue). They make the kool-aid.

Trump and his buffoons are what happens when you let the people who drank the kool-aid run the show. It's all of the evil with none of the subtlety or sense of decorum. His fans like that he has none of the subtlety or decorum but neglect the fact that he's still evil and will still take every opportunity to fuck them out of their money and freedoms.

Thankfully, he's such an egomaniac and so terrible at anything required of a politician (diplomacy, bargaining, tact), he'll continue to fall on his face when trying to accomplish anything that isn't EXACTLY what "his" party wants.

Are you saying that republicans don't use identity politics? I know it might be a bit harder to see since they are increasingly focusing on a single identity.

Fair point. I guess I've just always seen the racial dog whistling and blowing up brown people as a subset of their Christian death cult.
