I laugh, but sometimes it's "laughing mirthlessly while squirming like an itchy bear cub."
Fuck the false equivalence that's been peddled all throughout history up to the present.
Let's call it the Howard Zinn narrative of history, since that seems to encapsulate everything from false equivalence "DAE both sides just as bad" to the same old "anything to the right of Mao is Nazi" that's been pushed since at least the days of Woodrow Wilson.
I was a bit of a constitutionalist from the earliest days of my political awareness, even pre-libertarianism, which is probably why all the narrative pushers and their sycophants would respond, "Well, obviously you were ALWAYS right-wing."
Fuck moderate enlightened centrism.
"How did you know I was right-wing?" "You never talk about politics."
(For some reason, my mother, with a doctorate degree, failed to find this joke amusing. This is part of the reason I no longer discuss politics with her.

I love that one.
So much hidden truth in it too.
Biden & Biden: <perform illegal and criminal activities involving the Ukraine>
Trump: "We should investigate this."
The media: "Ukraine is near Russia! Orange man bad! Impeach!"
Geez ... the rhetoric is getting even more stupid than usual. I'm wondering if the dems know there's a smoking gun against them in this Ukraine thing, and the sudden impeach-a-thon is a "hail mary pass" to try to keep the whole thing from collapsing.
As much as the left would like to see Trump impeached, all Real Americans want to see Hitlery and Osama behind bars (at a minimum).
Why not all three?
(Seriously, where's Joe McCarthy now that we really need him?)
One of my favorite P.J. O'Rourke quote:
“My grandmother said: 'Pat, I’m worried about you. Are you becoming a Democrat?’
“Grandma!” I said. “Lyndon Johnson and Richard Nixon are both fascist pigs. Of course I’m not a Democrat… I’m a communist!”
“ 'At least you’re not a Democrat,’ said Grandma.”
But this Ukraine thing will take him down, THIS time it's for real!
Trump. Biden/Biden. Nickelback.
'nuff said. This is why I love our President.
