Republican meltdown

Recommended Posts

Oh my golly gosh...a pop singer just endorsed the other side.

The rage..

Really? Anyone would think they're scared of the kiddy vote.

Mind you, it's a pretty pointed endorsement 

https://www.theguardian.com/music/2018/oct/08/taylor-swift-instagram-post-endorsement-democrats-tennessee

Her endorsements drew much praise but also a fierce backlash. Some white supremacists who have formed an odd cult following around the singer cried betrayal, while some more mainstream fans said she should have stuck to her music.

On Monday, Donald Trump joined in, saying he now liked Swift’s music “about 25% less”.

Those rightwing fans, for one, were incensed.

“Oh yay! Another literally retarded celebrity the left can fawn over while we make fun of her and them for being retarded,” wrote one poster on the often-controversial online message board 4chan.

“Taylor swift just ended her entire career lmao,” [sic] another poster wrote. A third chimed in: “Guys I think those fucking cultists who tortment [sic] us killed Taylor Swift and replaced her with a brain dead [non-playable character]. Those fuckers have gone too far this time. I will defend the honor of my lady Taylor Swift and find a way to return her to normal.”

Mainstream Republicans were also displeased, posting a response promising she would not be able to, in the words of one of her hits, “shake it off”.

“If you haven’t heard, multimillionaire pop star Taylor Swift came down from her ivory tower to tell hardworking Tennesseans to vote for Phil Bredesen,” said the post by the National Republican Senatorial Committee.

Charlie Kirk, president of conservative group Turning Point USA, tweeted: “You just endorsed a Democrat in the Tennessee Senate race with a ridiculous statement saying Marsha Blackburn, a woman, is against women. You have absolutely no idea what you are talking about.”

I thought it was the Democrats who could not handle stuff and were melting down.

I know some of our fellow posters are saying that.  Are they not telling the truth?

Another comment he should take back to the Stern show where it belongs. But that one is pretty funny.

There is an exception to that rule for the real A-List celebrities like Scott Baio, or those who personify the New American Culture...like Kid Rock.

So when is this going to take place? Trump's numbers have steadily fallen in every state except Alabama and W. VA.  There is so much wrong with your thinking, er repeating Trumpisms.   Bigly! YUGE!.

The meltdown will accelerate in January. Once it's clear that Pence will be out of the running if he is elevated to Pres, the battle will begin. Trump is barely more likely than not to serve out the first term at 4/9. And his odds of reelection are a sad 1/2. Pathetic. What a looser. There's gonna be a lot of melting down. Dumb asses like Graham are going for name recognition. What a tool. It's the party of looser tools. They should be melted down.

Well pools(sic) were YUGE when Trump's numbers were up? Now, eh, not so much.  But he is still packing them in at the Rallies.  Speaking of, has there ever been a politician who after being elected continued to create rallies weekly?  Trump is absolutely cementing his base,  unfortunately cement sinks.

So, T-Swizzle is being credited with sparking a voter registration surge after chiming in.

And, Republicans, who trot out the likes of Kid Rock and Ted Nugent (as if they have any real political credibility), are whining because she opened her mouth.

Just another day in Hypocrite Whiner-Land.

Last day for voter registration was October 8th. The registration surge was due to that.

I'm a huge Tom Lehrer fan. In fact, I'm often in Santa Cruz and I have a UCSC buddy who might know him for any of several reasons. I'd never thought of looking him up but I'll see my buddy on Wednesday and find out. I always meant to look up George Olson (Santa Cruz boatbuilder) and tell him thanks for the boat. Shoulda done that.

Was that deadline nationwide?  No.

If you are referring to Tennessee, the additional registrations went up by about 5,200.

Vote.org reports a surge of more than 100,000 new registrations.  

Go ahead and dismiss her.

Pink? 

"

When asked about her ­political views, the star said: “The world the way it is now is dicey, dicey. It’s crazy times.

“Every morning I wake up, throw my hands up in the air and I’m like, ‘F***ing unbelievable, this is unbelievable.’

“What’s my reaction to Trump? Simply f***ing unbelievable.

“There is no good stuff with him, no good stuff at all. There’s zero there. I just want this part over so we can get to the clean-up operation.”"

Thank you,Taylor.

After reluctantly giving in to my daughters demands to listen to your poppy with a tinge of angst country but not country tunes during road trips for a few years there, you have at least paid me back a little. I would love to hear your opinion of the NRA, but you've done enough damage to the fragile egos of the right wing egomaniacs for now. If I'm forced to listen to your music again it will be with slightly less irritation.

I can see why you felt she was only speaking to Tennessee residents and only asking her fans to vote for Bredesen and Cooper.

Except, this is what she wrote -

"Please, please educate yourself on the candidates running in your state and vote based on who most closely represents your values. For a lot of us, we may never find a candidate or party with whom we agree 100% on every issue, but we have to vote anyway.
So many intelligent, thoughtful, self-possessed people have turned 18 in the past two years and now have the right and privilege to make their vote count. But first you need to register, which is quick and easy to do."

Well, to the folks on the right, dismissing a performer for having a political view only counts when it isn't one of their team.

Remember when we heard about this event?  Hoo boy, no dismissal from the right on that.
