Oh, Ratcliffe is leading off. Well, that inspires confidence.
The guy who was originally turned down for DNI because he lied about his resume is here to warn about disinformation.
Ratcliffe says that Iran is trying to meddle to hurt Trump, but then mentions the emails threatening voters — ones saying they’ll release info on them if they don’t vote for Trump — but doesn’t mention Trump there. Well done.
Well, thanks for the vague comments on the second threat, let’s see if the media has anything more specific than the FBI here ... oh!

Sorry, it seems this was somehow even dumber than I thought — Ratcliffe didn’t ignore the partisan impact of the email threats to Democratic voters; he implied the threats were meant to hurt Trump? What?

If you’re despairing, find a Senate race near you and get involved.
Doesn’t have to be in your state.

You can phone bank from anywhere and do registration/canvassing in nearby states.

I know there’s a lot of horrible things going on and there’s much more important stuff to worry about and the NFL season is surely doomed, but I still feel the need to announce the return of YOUR REIGNING SUPER BOWL CHAMPIONS, THE KANSAS CITY GODDAMN CHIEFS!!!!
The greatest love story ever filmed.

Trump 2016: I Alone Can Fix It!

Trump 2020: Biden Alone Can Fix It!
I realize it’s all they have, but it’s such a stupid line.

For starters, Biden has repeatedly denounced violence. He did on May 31, on June 2, etc. ImageImage
Second of all, given Biden’s role in the 1994 crime bill and Harris’s past as a prosecutor, it’s an even harder sell.

If anything, this is a gift to a ticket that’s been trying to shore up their left flank which mistrusts then on this issue above all.

Amazing that you're such a horrible liar.

This was from the speech Joe Biden gave in Philadelphia on June 2, 2020 -- 89 days ago.

I'm starting to think that Don Jr. might actually be the stupider Trump son.

My apologies to Eric.
I guess they're all going with this same stupid lie?

Hey there, @tedcruz! Let's take a quick tour through the Texas Republican Party's history in the civil rights era!
As I've noted repeatedly on here, the first wave of Southern Republicans in the 1950s and 1960s largely showed the same support of segregation as Southern Democrats.

Texas Republicans in the 1950s and 1960s fit that pattern well.

For instance, when the Brown ruling was handed down in 1954, the Texas GOP nominee for governor attacked the Court and promised he would preserve segregation if elected.

He went so far as to criticize Texas Democrats for failing to take a "positive stand for segregation."

I’m not watching the GOP roll call, so somebody let me know if any of these come true:
DAMMIT, I should’ve called this one.
