I hope y'all aren't too committed to pacifism. This is some ugly shit. I think we may have to get ready to fight.

Luckily, I'm not. I'll have no qualms about slashing some throats.

Trump has scotch tape on his tie because:
1. He's quite overweight and a standard tie won't tuck in properly
2. Despite being wealthy, he clearly refuses to wear custom tailored clothes that would fit him well.
3. He is a incredibly tacky person. Just...the tackiest. And, if you were raised whew I was, "tacky" is about the worst judgment you can make about anyone. Bless his heart.

Trump seems to like smaller knots (half-windsors or tightly tied windsors), so maybe that's why he doesn't buy extra-long ties, which would better suit his collar size and height (he's a tall guy, actually). If you're just buying regular length ties and doing half-windsors or full-but-tightened windsors, you're gonna have a short tail on the tie.

It's baffling. He dresses like the 22 year old door man at my building, decent suit but didn't spring another $50 for tailoring.

The 'bless his heart' is a nice touch.

Part of the Democratic Party's problem is they failed to grasp this obvious, obvious result: http://www.politico.com/story/2016/12/c ... oll-232224

It's only syphilitic weirdos at Vox who would think the Carrier deal would somehow be bad for Trump. I agree with the take that the policy implications don't really help workers overall, that there's a lot of smoke-and-mirrors. But until the Dems actually offer a viable alternative to America that protects livelihoods in a direct, tangible way, folks are going to be really positive on this kind of stuff.

But instead of figuring out how to create a pro-worker alternative, Dems are busy signing up for more years of The Nancy Pelosi Experience.

Did you know they really won the popular vote, even though that has never meant a bucket of warm spit in this country? If not, wait 3 seconds and they'll tell you.
