When people say "we're a center-right country," I always hear "white people are center-right."

Ron Johnson, David Clark, Scott Walker, etc. were always assholes. That's what happened.

I don't think I'll ever stop being offended by being told that, as a Democrat, I don't support law enforcement or believe in the rule of law.

I suspect, like with most of what these pundits have said through the last 40years, their commentary will prove to be naive at best and, most likely, another example of their biased stupidity. When Cheney splits the party and runs for Pres. in 24, they will look like fools.

Poor me, it's the people who have been calling out the bullshit for decades that are responsible for the fascism that has been outed in the last 5 years.

Listening to their apologizing about the Tea Party reminds me of how the Nazis and fascists were excused by the people that only turned against them when they themselves were the victims. If it was really about monetary policy, they would have risen up as soon as Biden suggested the 1st spending bill.

"No acquaintance with any ideas" is such a beautiful way to say stupid. Thank you for this discussion. I'm certain I would disagree with most of Mr. Wehner's political ideology, however, I felt so calmed by this rational, historical discussion. I'm grateful for the Bulwark for many reasons. Mostly, I'm grateful that we can have these discussions in an honest way.
