To heed Lucianne Goldberg's doughy offspring's mahhhvy advice:
Remember, Conservatives, your problem is not piling one monumentally shitty idea on top of another and calling it a Movement....Conservatives rarely get calls from the New York Times, BuzzFeed, NPR, Politico, et al. to talk about scrapping the medical-device tax. They get calls all of the time to comment on issues that are divisive or embarrassing for the GOP. It is hardly as if Democrats don’t have embarrassing characters in their midst. Indeed, as Weigel casually notes, Obama had a very severe nutjob problem in that he had ties to some very sketchy people, including a domestic terrorist named Bill Ayers. That Obama was able to turn Obama’s critics into the nuts in that narrative says more about how eager the mainstream press — particularly outlets such as Slate — were to help Obama out then it does about how nutty the GOP is or was.Obviously the GOP has a messaging problem these days. But one of the reasons the messaging problem is so severe for Republicans is that the mainstream media loves hyping stories that fuel that messaging problem. That’s not an excuse for Republicans to play into their hands, it’s an illustration of how much harder Republicans have to work in the face of an outrageous double standard....
It's definitely not cliff diving into that shitpile over and over again, face-first, while rebel-yelling "FreeeeeDuuuuum!" all the way down every fucking time.
And it is absolutely not limping away from the dungblast impact crater of your every epic failure vowing to jump from a higher place next time.
No, the real problem is us tricksie Liberals and the "outrageous double standard" of the media we so obviously control.
Also too, ACOOOOOOOOOOORN!
