No discussion of anti-Trumpers would be complete without a look at the Lincoln Project. They were promoted as Republicans who were so offended by President Trump’s character, rhetoric, actions, or morals they simply could not support him. They claim to be conservative constitutionalists who find Trump so reprehensible they would prefer to have a far left/nascent socialist in office.

That’s worthy of reflection. Assume for a moment you’re a hardcore Constitutional Conservative. Short of compelling proof of a crime, a candidate going on a killing spree, kidnapping elderly nuns, or assassinating puppies, what would they have to do to persuade you to support the most extreme leftist ticket in your lifetime? Right. Hard to think of anything. Especially once your candidate had established an actual governing track record that was indisputably conservative in most ways.

Perhaps the least debatable statement one can make about the 2020 campaign is that it is going to be unusual. Duh. In a year characterized by riots, a pandemic, and an invasion of rabid honey badgers, it is almost inevitable the election will be different.

Democratic leaders and their sycophantic cadre of flying monkeys in the media are circulating the message that, whatever happens, they will not concede. The Hildebeast, notably, has said Biden should not concede. The careful reader might notice that the Democrats have been promoting the fear that Trump will not concede, even if he loses, but have no problem doing that very thing. In 2000, the Democrats set the standard for not accepting election results. Al Gore fought until, literally, there were no legal options remaining. The key issue was Florida, where Gore never led a single vote count. Ultimately, fewer than 700 votes in Florida determined the winner. Which reminds us how important it is to make sure there is no fraudulent voting, or inaccurate counts.

Do Spoons Make You Fat?

It probably shouldn’t be necessary to expound on the horror of mass shootings. Anyone who doesn’t understand, or share, the sentiment, isn’t deserving of a seat at the table of rational discourse. That said, it’s possible there isn’t an issue where political hypocrisy is more pervasive.

For years, the cry from conservatives was “When guns are outlawed, only outlaws will have guns.”

As clearly truthful as that statement is, it irritates anti-gun folks. More recent permutations of the thought include notions such as “If guns cause murder, spoons make me fat.” Do pens misspell words or computers force you to look at online porn? Many readers no doubt would love to think those are valid excuses. We’ll keep you posted.
