this is very stupid and wrong. it's how we gave nixon, reagan, and bush a pass and ended up with trump.
"history will judge" = the gop pushes hard to embellish the historical record and so we end up with kindly old reagan, and poor naive dubya and eventually idiosyncratic donald. fuck all of that.
this is what happens when we let the monsters live politically: Image

Happy to see many more progressives on the “we’re not taking shit from the mainstream media” train. I’ve been waiting for you for a LONG time.
And no, begging them to do better won’t work. Working with them won’t work. Firm and forceful public shaming is the only path.
Nothing radicalized me on the mainstream press more than covering them for 13 years and repeatedly watching absolute bullshit from the fevered swamps of the right repeatedly get amplified at the commanding heights of the mainstream press. They are the worst. The worst.

i disagree with the real radical left (its not aoc and bernie, no matter what fox/gop says) on a lot of things, mostly national security type stuff, but considering our decades under wingnuttery, id prefer them

Reagan would love this crap, stop making him out to be a saint. He laughed at gay men dying from AIDS and called blacks monkeys.
Reagan was for shit…
Republicans barely like to say good things about FDR (4 terms and ww2 make that hard) and yet CONSTANTLY we have to tell democrats to stop the deification of Reagan, Bush and Bush II. Stop.

“Hello, thank you for calling the Biden campaign, please hold.”
“And we’re gonna buy ads in Texas, and Georgia, and all the Carolinas, and maybe a blimp, we can definitely afford a blimp. Maybe two, no, three blimps, three blimps for Biden...”
“One thousand dollars for tv ads here, one thousand dollars for gotv here, one thousand dollars for web ads here...”
