Take a close look at Joy Reid's profile picture. Then ask yourself why you are calling her "ignorant." Are you racist? Well, are you? Huh?

Right, I mean, they're all braindead, who isn't braindead? No one who is listened to "seriously" is anything other than braindead.
Definitely, extremely braindead

You know, if Tucker Carlson or Rush Limbaugh said something that stupid, the MSM media would be all over them for their ignorance.

/tu quoque
I dunno. They say stuff that stupid all the time. Usually, they just get blasted for saying something extremely insensitive. Jumping all over Tucker Carlson when he says something stupid would be a full time job.

Re Trump and Christianity--

Mo is right, and I think the reason is that they are going to rally around Trump the same way people after the election rallied around Hillary. This is Their Guy, dammit, and they don't want The Other Guy/Gal to ruin their lives. (Note if you aren't an immigrant from the Ban countries or an Obama flack hoping for a job in the Hilldawg administration, your life hasn't been ruined by Trump.)

Conversely, I think, contra Thoreau, that any churchiness might shore up a tiny fraction of his base, but I think it would come off as insincere to most people outside his core demographic. The rest were there because he promised anti-immigration ponies and pissed off the Democrats. I strongly doubt he's going to pull any more in.

I'm not talking about winning more votes or getting people to say positive things to pollsters. I'm talking about getting more extremism from the people he has. Getting more people to do like the handful of Trump supporters who have attacked protestors at rallies.

There's a fear on the left that Trump will do more than just win an election, that he'll make himself into a dictator backed by brownshirt followers. And I think the reason he can't do that is because he doesn't have the necessary bona fides to take this to the next level. They like him pissing off libruls, but he could never make himself into a President-for-Life with a brigade of brownshirt types because he can't make this into a sacred cause.

He can do anything he wants and his followers will give a thumbs up to the pollsters as long as he's pissing off libruls. But they won't get off the couch for him. Thank God.

Then again, I had a well thought-out reason why he would never get the critical mass of support needed to win the general election. So what the fuck do I know? I just hope I'm wrong in the "even religion wouldn't do it for him" way, not the "nope, he can take this to the next level without religion" way.

I remain bemused by the thought that, especially in the age of the Internet, any parent thinks telling their teenager "This is too bad and too sexy for you to read" will actually decrease the possibility of said teenager reading it.

It's more that it ties it to info that might be relevant for those stupid "security questions." I know you know the implications, but I find it funny.

I really want to do one with "last four digits of your SSN" and "your mother's maiden name" as options.

For all the jokes that conservatives make about liberals and celebrities, they sure do cream their jeans over every C-list celebrity that decides to run for office. Even Charles Cooke of NR was defending Rock's idiocy on Twitter.
