I'm officially off both this mofos... Tulsi's increasingly pompous pronouncements, completely at odds with her public status, along with her weirdly right-wing friendly tone (difficult to quantify or describe, just a patriotic thing, with a lot of talk about ISLAMIC TERRORISTS AL-QUAIDA) gave me the creeps for a long time but somehow I just tried to roll with it. No more. And Jimmy Dore is an intellectually dishonest huckster whose schtick is some sort of left-libertarian style ranting with little regard for facts.

Dore's descent recently has been rapid. Much worse than before. He now seems to reposition his anger by the week or the day so that it remains distinctive, which is also destructive, one-sided, and increasingly reckless with facts (on which he was already shaky long ago). Very bad because he was once so strong on certain key issues -- #Russiagate, Syria -- and now he's making that impossible to show.

Dore's descent recently has been rapid. He is much worse than before. He has gotten louder and seems to reposition his anger by the week or the day so that it stands out, although it is also destructive, one-sided, and reckless with facts. He was already shaky on facts long ago, but now we see the difference between not knowing something or missing a nuance, as was sometimes the case before, and very evidently not having bothered at all to educate himself or to contemplate a question in advance. This is very bad because he was once so strong on certain key issues -- #Russiagate, Syria -- and now he's making that impossible to show.

Gabbard, sorry, no. Tolerated a lot of weird patriotic unity rhetoric because she was playing a potentially important role. My most recent contrib to her was very recent! I was willing to look away from the Modi support (the real problem among the standard set of accusations thrown at her, most of which are obvious smears) because a. it's the "centrist" US position, not that this is good but it's common; b. it's something US policy doesn't actually drive; and c. she wasn't going to win, or be in a position to influence it. But this latest turn, suddenly rushing to endorse a key Iraq war backer long in advance of his official status as nominee, and thus contradicting her central claims, can't be justified.

Yes. Gabbard appears to have fucked herself.

Yeah, you again said it succinctly. That's why I called it a "schtick". It just reeks of intellectual dishonesty. A bunch of gratuitously contrarian "angry truth teller" posing, with changing targets.

Glad to hear I'm not the only one who held out with Tulsi for possibly quite some time longer than was warranted... :cry:

It's all over, all that crap. It has never been more obvious than now that all that crap is finally all over.

Westworld' star Evan Rachel Wood supports Rose McGowan's anti-Democrats stance after Biden fallout: 'Spot on'

"Westworld" star Evan Rachel Wood backed Rose McGowan’s most recent missive against the Democratic Party following the fallout from assault allegations against Joe Biden.

Wood, 32, on Friday directly responded to McGowan's latest tweet in which the former "Charmed" actress declared she is no longer a "proud Democrat" due to her affiliated party downplaying sexual assault allegations against Biden by Tara Reade, a former staffer from his days in the senate.

"I have to say this is...spot on," Wood tweeted in response to McGowan's lengthy post.

Wood, a vocal gay rights advocate, previously delivered emotional testimony on Capitol Hill in 2018 to detail two instances in which she was raped and one in which she was tortured.

During a hearing for the Sexual Assault Survivors Bill, the "Westworld" star shared a five-minute statement in front of the House Judiciary Subcommittee on Crime, Terrorism, Homeland Security and Investigations consisting of harrowing details of her alleged assault that involved being "tied up and beaten."

The alleged assault resulted in Wood's years-long battles with PTSD, addiction and depression, she said.

Side-note: season 3 of Westworld, which just completed its finale last week, is topical and worth further rumination.
