odds are good that the worst things Trump has ever done are not coincident in space and time with Russian surveillance

It's scary that this dude can launch tomahawk missiles at people.

It's scarier that Fox & Friends can talk him into it.

We were all scandalized to learn late in the Bush animation that the White House was feeding talking points to Fox and Friends. Little did we know that eventually Fox and Friends would be feeding talking points to the White House. As W says, "He makes me look pretty good, doesn't he?"

Lol. I meant that even though it seemed obvious, there was actually a clip of the dude who's not Steve doocey accidentally reading the RNC talking points off a sheet instead of pretending he made it up like normal. That happened later in the term of I remember right.

No shit. No one voted for president Steve Doocy. I think I've read that Fox has accepted that they have undue influence over him and are steering him towards what they want and maybe sometimes not completely shitting the bed as he seems prone to do.

If you told me when I was 22 that I'd one day be longing for the sensibility and acumen of the Bush II administration I would have had you committed

Yeah.

I remember watching Obama getting elected and thinking "it'll never be this bad ever again."

I was living in downtown Detroit at the time. If you were to visit downtown Detroit right now, you might think you were in Brooklyn or something, but 10 years ago there really weren't any white people besides me and mk. I have never seen as optimistic of an atmosphere as the morning after the election. Bums were high fiving you on the street. I was in line at the bank, and I had to wait like 10 minutes even though I was second in line, because the tellers and the customers were just in a mood to talk about what the hell is happening in America, and I-thought-I'd-never-see-this-day sort of stuff. It was enough to make you tear up. At work (also in downtown Detroit) they basically cancelled everything on Jan 20, 2009 to let everyone gather in the auditorium to watch the inauguration. I remember clearly thinking that America had turned a corner. I'm still hopeful that we did. To paraphrase Dick Cheney, the insurgency is in its last throes. Hopefully I'm more correct than him!

North Hollywood was similar, albeit Chicano.
