You may as well say that William Buckley was a dumb ass.

That would also be incorrect.
The woman saw a poster with Abe Lincoln wearing a MAGA hat and asked if it were photoshopped. I shit you not. So, William Buckley? LMAO. Not even in the same universe.

Ok, so you both are bias.

Sure. Isn't everyone when it comes to politics? Either that or they don't care. People who don't care I have little time for.

Yes, but not everyone starts an anti Chelsea Clinton thread,then claims someone else is more bias.

OK, not everyone who starts a thread gets labeled as biased either. All kinds of groundbreaking events going on. You think roni started the Trump thread to praise him? Someone claimed that the Trump thread was turning too Clinton so I started a Clinton thread. Feel free to particpate or not. Just a tip. The thread ain't about me.

<shrug> She's a liberal and a Democrat, I can't imagine there are many of her opinions which you would find worthy of consideration. I don't like Paul Ryan's views, but I think he possesses a few marbles to express them. She's an academic with a political pedigree, but I don't know that they're grooming her for anything because I agree she's not a natural politician. Then again, Ivanka probably never thought she'd find herself in policy meetings with China and Leonardo DiCaprio. She ain't dumb, either.

I hate the expression "worthy of consideration." I like to think that I, at least, consider everyone's viewpoint. I may not agree with it or I may even think it stupid but I do consider it first before making an assessment. That expression is a little condescending, even though I am pretty sure you didn't mean it like that.

I didn't. I don't think Ryan is worthy of my consideration. Not because he's stupid, because he's wrong. Considering everyone's viewpoint is lovely for the mantle of moderates. I'm a partisan hack.

I believe you sell yourself short. I have seen your moderate views on some issues and you would not dismiss anyone's opinion out of hand. A partisan hack you are not and I bet you I could find more than one thing on which you and Ryan agree, if'fn I had the time and info necessary to undertake such a project. Which I don't.

Well, I did think that he and Romney were the Most Handsome Ticket of my voting life thus far. I'll bet I could find common ground between you and Elizabeth Warren. No, scratch that.

Who do you think is more qualified for public office, Chelsea Clinton or Ivanka Trump?

Actually, I saw Warren talking about something yesterday and I agreed with her for about 3 minutes. I can't remember what it was but she had correctly identfied a problem. It was her solution that I didn't particularly like.

Qualified? Neither.

Do you ever wonder what dumb things people would catch you saying if you were in the public eye since your pre-teen years?

Trump is POTUS. As far as I know there are no Clinton's holding or running for any office. You are just going through a Clinton withdrawal after decades of them being your targets.

Not any more, as we've all witnessed.
