It’s been fun watching Trump’s 2005 tax return blow up in Rachel Maddow’s butch-cutted lesbian face (see Donald Trump Paid More Taxes Than Obama… and MSNBC Employees and It’s ‘Possible’ Trump Leaked His 2005 Tax Returns… Says Reporter Who Received Them). Yes, it would be just as fun if she looked like Giselle. The blow up continued on Bill Maher’s show, where Andrew Sullivan doled out life lessons to leftists they’ll likely never follow…
“There was a giant cloud of smug above Rachel Maddow when she was doing that. Liberals have to be careful not to sound so fucking condescending and smug… and start actually engaging the other side and persuading people.”
No, progressives. Don’t do start practicing the zen ways of politeness, decency, or tempered reason. Your restraint would be bad for business. As much as we’d like to watch you struggle as you try keeping unhinged rage under covers of fat pride slabs of flappy skin. Thanks to the smugness of the left, with healthy doses of dripping condescending superiority, the right keeps winning against the left. It’s like a vicious circle of victory laps. I’m getting dizzy.
Really though, it’s remarkable the left’s reaction to getting schlonged by Donald Trump has been to triple down over what got them schlonged in the first place. Proof that self-awareness isn’t to be expected.
Of course, the left isn’t going to temper their unhinged crazy. They’re not going to cease their shame games. The smugness will continue into perpetuity. It’s who they are. I find it noble that Sullivan and Maher want to “engage in ideas,” but they have no ideas. That’s why the left resorts to childhood tactics of screaming tantrums. How else are can they fight superior ideas except to shut them down?
Either way, you keep doing you leftists.
