Today In Both Side Do It: Lil Marco

Longtime readers will remember that, like every other respectable coward, clown and con-man in American politics, Marco Rubio practically lives in the basement of the High and Holy Church of Both Sides Do It.

From Crooks & Liars in 2016:
Rubio Reflexively Blames 'Both Sides' For Violence At Trump Rallies
From me in 2012:
Centrism Triumphant

In case you missed Jon Stewart's award-verging "interview" with Marco Rubio, here is your rush transcript of Senator Rubio's answer to Jon Stewart every single time Mr. Stewart tried very respectfully to point out that Senator Rubio was, um, lying, and that the relentless, pathological obstructiveness of the Republican Party was unmatched by anything Democrats have done in modern history.

"Both sides..."

"Well, you know, both sides..."

"Both Democrats and Republicans..."

"That's just politics..."

"The Democrats left us no choice..."

"Both sides..."

"Democrats and Republicans..."

"Both sides..."

"Both Democrats and Republicans..."

And so forth, to the point of being comical.

Like every other Republican culture war criminal, Senator Rubio has been conditioned within an inch of his life to always answer any question about the unique perfidy and hypocrisy of his political Party with the Big Lie of Centrism and to refuse to stop repeating the Big Lie of Centrism until the questions stop regardless of circumstances...
However much of a Republican mass-electoral-extinction event the administration of President Stupid turns out to be, the cold fact is that afterwards there will still be 50-60 million brain-dead Fox News brownshirts wandering the countryside looking for someone to absolve them of their atrocities, preach to them that it was all the Libtard's fauly anyway, and to lead them back to the promised land. 

And right now, everyone in Republican party politics is positioning themselves to harvest that crop of toxic miscreants.

Behold, a Tip Jar!

I have commented elsewhere that who but a sullen teenager would own such an article of clothing? And nobody told her not to wear it in public, at that particular occasion? Not buying it. You talked about that on the podcast. So, If I may appropriate Fareed Zakaria, this is the moment when the First Lady became Marie Antoinette.

But in honor of your subject matter I will go with this:

Let’s dispel this notion that Meliana Trump didn’t know what she’s doing. She knows exactly what she’s doing. She is trying to trivialize barbarity.

Isn't it funny how every Republican president generates a variety of Derangement Syndrome. Perhaps CDC should look into this.

Good afternoon, Mr. Glass.

Uh, I searched Twitter with the following parameters:

"any of these words" = immigrant immigration migrant

"from these accounts" = flotus

I got "no results" from the search...

And for the record, if I have a search for her account using the word "donald", I get one hit. So it's not like Twitter's search engine is utterly broken.

Be seeing you.

OT re your latest C+L Chiller Theater selection: a hyooge, beautiful wall along the Mexican border couldn't even keep out giant space octopuses? I think I see what you did there, Driftglass... :-D

Interesting that you point out Little Marco in his childish behavior of not being able to accept responsibility for his and his republican brotherhood day care friends.

I do not expect Little Marco to ever be able to grow up to adulthood in which he takes responsibility for his own actions.

Because it is well documented that Conservationism stunts ones growth.

Having to do with staying young by believing life was so better as a child because as a child then. There was no need to be involved in such adult issues of the day.
There were toyys to play with. And still are.

Here is some both sider,
During Obama Adm years. Every GOP mouth was screaming angry hateful froth out their mouths how Obama was a dictator for using executive orders.

Now that Obama is gone and they have Executive tweeter Order chaplain in chief using executive orders like cracking eggs at an omlett factory.

There is silence on the ideological principal of a president using E.Os.

When pressed, "well both sides as president used them.

Ignoring the fact that it was one side that railed and flogged over the other side using them.

maybe it was a president using E.O.s while black?

Was it just partisan obstruction of confirming Judges of a president nominating judges for confirmations while black?

If they were "True" republicans, They would cut taxes for the rich (again) to solve the immigration problem.

Am I wrong? How so?

FLOTUS has a voice? That's strange. You'd think, with her "speaking out" there'd be at least a snippet of a sound bite to be found...

Her wardrobe seems to speak for her...
