Sure. Those folks ain't running the party anymore though.
It’s a good point. Chipping away at it will maybe get Roberts. This is a drastic “fuck your rulings” legislation.
This was my thoughts yesterday evening. Roberts won’t be overturning Roe vs. Wade to the extent that a law can criminalize almost all forms of abortion and stay valid. He wouldn’t mind putting some dents into it that could give way in time. But a full out ban like Alabama? Hell no.
They've primed the base so much with promises of full repeal, that anything less would be seen as weak tea when they have shiny new SCOTUS toys. Conservatives have to turn the sadism up to 11, or the dogs get confused and start barking at them, and we all know the only thing these assholes fear is a primary from the right.
It's funny how controversial that allusion to lesbianism in Postcards from Buster was, while Mr. Ratburn coming out and getting married is hardly a blink on anyone's radar, and all from the same show, 23 years running (granting that Postcards from Buster is a spinoff)
“I’ll tell you what’s at the bottom of it. If you can convince the lowest white man he’s better than the best colored man, he won’t notice you’re picking his pocket. Hell, give him somebody to look down on, and he’ll empty his pockets for you.”
YOU MEAN THE DRAGON OF BUDAPEST? THE SCOURGE OF THE DANUBE?
A big part of it is still name recognition.
No, not suggesting that at all, and they have to live with the consequences of their choice, lest I be misunderstood. It also doesn't mean Dems need to chase after them. I guess I don't know what we do with these rural places that Era seems content to burn to the ground and leave barren as revenge for years of GOP fuckery a la some modern day Sherman's March to the Sea.
