    All you get from Trumpers these days is either (1) Fake News (2) but Obama! (3) but Hillary!

    Trump is indefensible so they engage in Whataboutism. Tiring, banal, and predictable.

    Look at it this way...it's a good way to practice anger control and patience. I take comfort in knowing that I planted a seed of truth in their brain and that someday it may grow. It also helps to know that even if they don't read it...someone else will. Just don't give up the good fight.

    Oh brother, I am a better person for my experience here! I do my homework, research and annotate, double check spelling and grammar and restrain myself from replying to those posters that I've verified cannot read or comprehend basic English composition and will argue endlessly in the face of spoon-fed logic that destroys their position. Try very hard not to stoop to personal observations. Cheers!

    It's certainly getting salty in the Montana special election. As it will later this year in UTAH-3, dates announced today.

    It was a special election that moved key GOPoliticians against Nixon. I prefer the GOP prolong the agony as long as trump doesn't go beyond rogue .

    It's all good. I should also mention that helps to have a sense of humor. Cheers to you, too.

    Currently, Utah is fighting over what to do about replacing Chaffetz in June. So stay tuned.

Just seems like the temperature has gone up a few degrees...am I crazy?
    Salty is good. It's the hysterical repitition of spin that is so sad.

    I've got a link in my election thread from Utah Political Capitol; the primary is supposed to be 8/15 and the general 11/7/17. It says a candidate doesn't have to live in UT-3.

    Too bad Salt Lake County is gerrymandered into 3 CDs. Clinton won it by over 37,000 votes. GM is the number one obstacle to taking back the House and state legislatures .

    Hmm. Not bad. Not what I was fishing for, though. (And you know it).
    Disinformation campaign? The Russian collusion meme pushed by the 'news' media, behaving as a political propaganda organ, hell bent to destroy a legitimately elected president to implement his agenda per the votes of the same electorate. Reference The Big Lie Reference Goebbels
