Trump absolutely thinks everything he does is more likely to get him re-elected.

If you take Shor's take of "Clinton lost because she didn't appeal to racists enough" at its word you can see how it does.

Sure, but my larger point is that he isn't letting pollsters and think tanks dictate what comes out of his mouth. He believes nearly everything he says, certainly all of the things central to his campaign. He's spent the last five years saying the same crap because they aren't things polished by other people. There are many things about him that are phony, but I do think his stated positions are more authentic than Obama's or GWB's were.

Happened on this lol

Quote
“We’re gonna keep the name of Robert E. Lee?” Trump asked. Inhofe replied, “Just trust me, I’ll make it happen,” and Trump replied, “I had about 95,000 positive retweets on that. That’s a lot.”

That criticism made more sense to me when I learned that some signatories believe the demand has no chance of being met, and treat it as something only bad-faith critics would take seriously. Of course I don’t want that, more than one signatory told me, as if anyone with common sense would already know as much.

Rusty beat me to it, I'm glad Loeffler unintentionally lifted the veil on the fake construct of cancel culture. And yes stone, she's the pandemic profiteer.

"An apology is the first step in undoing the harm you have caused many members of the community, but is in no way the last," they wrote. "In the current political atmosphere, it is imperative that we are all actively anti-racist, and endorsing speakers like these is antithetical to the anti-racist work being done by students, faculty, and staff on our campus."

committee is likely to be seen as smacking too much of a Star Chamber—probably benign and well-intentioned, but a Star Chamber nonetheless …

I enjoyed this. Thread idea rename the board (Pit) if Biden wins.  :D

I didn't know who these people were before reading that thread, but I'm amazed people actually live lives like that, what an amazingly bat crap existence.

Their lives were crazy on their own in that thread but the fact that they the dad was also like leading a weird self help movement that was centered on degrading women and cleaning your room makes it even crazier

Yeah Peterson has a lot of good things to say but he's also says a bunch of weirdo stuff and does weirdo things and isn't exactly someone anyone should try to imitate. 

If you can filter out the batshit stuff, what's left is great.

Do as I say (well, the good stuff at least), not as I do is a real thing imo.
If there was a gif of nicname thwarting the attempted-flag-taker and then gesturing him to suck it, followed by motioning for all of Hilton Shelter to boo him louder, it'd be better than that auburn gif.
