Do Not Disrespect Ruth Bader Ginsburg, You Gangrenous Ingrown Toenails

When it comes to Presidential elections, everyone is always talking about levels of enthusiasm, and it was exactly the enthusiasm gap that likely cost Hillary Clinton in the battleground states in 2016. The people who love Trump really love Trump and showed up for him in Wisconsin, Pennsylvania, and Michigan. Meanwhile, as we have all seen, the enthusiasm for Biden is … eh. The most exciting thing about Joe Biden is Kamala Harris (sorry! I’ll be nice!). But the enthusiasm for defeating Trump is off-the-goddamn-charts, which is what is driving much of Biden’s success in the polls, so far.

Meanwhile, the death of RBG seems to have galvanized Democrats maybe more than anything else has over the past year, and that is saying a lot. In the 24 hours after the Justice’s death — as Trump’s supporters were chanting “Fill that seat! Fill that seat!” in a rally on Saturday — the Democrats raised $100 million through Act Blue. That’s half of what Trump raised in the entire month of August, and Trump was already getting crushed by Biden in the money game ($356 million to $200 million in August).

What I’m saying here is: If you want to make good and damn sure that Democrats mail in the ballots and turn up at the polls, go ahead and disrespect Ruth Bader Ginsburg, assholes. You want Democrats to continue raising money like they’ve never done in their lives? Nominate a woman who believes the opposite of everything that Ruth Bader Ginsburg stood for. You want to see turnout among the rank-and-file the highest it’s ever been? Tell us one more time, Donny, that RBG didn’t say what her granddaughter said she said before she died, which is that her most fervent wish is that she not be replaced until after the election.

“I don’t know that she said that, or was that written out by Adam Schiff or Pelosi?” Trump said on Fox and Friends yesterday.

“I would be more inclined to the second, OK - you know, that came out of the wind. That sounds so beautiful, but that sounds like a Schumer deal, or maybe Pelosi or for Shifty Schiff. So that came out of the wind, let’s say. I mean, maybe she did, and maybe she didn’t.”

You feel your blood pressure rising? Good, that’s get-out-the-vote juice (so long as you don’t have a heart attack). Last night, Tucker Carlson opened his show by echoing Trump AND OH MY GOD HOW IS IT POSSIBLE THAT THIS MAN IS LEGALLY ALLOWED TO CALL ANYONE ‘SMUG’?


Everything that Tucker Carlson says about bloodthirsty, lefties who want to burn down the country isn’t true, except as it applies specifically to Tucker Carlson. All the things you are not allowed to publish because there are laws against it? Those are the things that I am thinking right now. This approximates it, though:
