That might be kind, but it would also be condoning some remarkably appallin

and that kind of reaction won't come as any kind of surprise.

Sure. The left should really find some nice things to say about guys  
like Rush, who worked tirelessly for 30 years to encourage the idea that  
the left should be killed and exterminated, and if it can't they're the  
"haters."

It's hard to say what makes the average boomer such habitual liar and  
gas-lighter. Lead gasoline exposure is one of my hypotheses.

I see a lot of people treat cashiers and food servers pretty bad, it's  
pretty gross behavior to my mind but this is what some people have in  
life, they don't have something like electronics design or some  
avocation that gives them pride or a sense of real self-confidence. they  
may be working better paid jobs but not ones that give them a sense of  
purpose.

So you've got people well into their 30s and 40s even going to the club  
(well, in normal times) once a week to show off spend big and treat the  
staff like crap because this is their one opportunity a week to shine  
and be a big-shot.

And the best I can do at the time if I find myself in a place like that  
with staff who's young and doesn't know the score is to tell them not to  
let pranksters like that throw them, they've always been there and may  
always be, nothin' changed.

To be fair to Trump supporters, I doubt of many of them favor of mass executions of traitors and sending millions of immigrants and gays to  death camps.
The problem is that many of them are so deplorably ignorant that they will tolerate pretty horrid behavior. John Larkin certainly fits in there.

The Trump party says there will be no further compromises. As such, all  
potential "solutions" to political differences from this perspective are  
final. What else is there.

Right, and Trump easied his way to the presidency by keeping the message  
on point. He knew how to insult people for effect in a way John McCain  
or Mitt Romney never could and at least for a while Americans loved him  
for it.

To the great dismay of some of the more thoughtful libertarians and  
socialists as well, the realization came that the majority of Americans  
who did so didn't vote for Rand Paul or Bernie Sanders due to being  
thoughtful libertarians or socialists, but primarily because they were  
the person saying the most outrageous things who was listed on the ballot.

I'm so glad you and Mr. Larkin seem to have made up - I think this is  
going to be the start of a beautiful relationship for the two of you.  
You can keep your warm beer but please just promise me you'll always be  
there for him.

And entirely appropriate when discussing Donald Trump, whose decision to do
wnplay the seriousness of the Covid-19 epidemic does seem to have contribut
ed to the deaths of 500,000 American so far.
He's not unique in his incompetence - a number of advanced industrial count
ries have been too worried about the economic consequences of going for eff
ective lock-down to do it early enough for it be useful, or to persist with
 it until the infection has been cleared from the community, but nobody els
e seems to have done significantly worse.

Grin, Yeah that's what I thought bitrex should raise.  
0.) I did warn you about the first bits...
1.) 'you' in this case should be taken in the plural and not singular.
2.) I'm pretty sure Scott could write a same/ similar thing about democrats.  
(There was a nice hit piece in the NYT a week or so ago.)  
3.) There's dark humor (satire, irony) that runs through the piece.  
It's written to his audience, after I get over the shock of it, the truth
underneath makes me laugh.  I guess that's a lot of humor, it depends on the  
audience.  
4.) I know this is going to sound weird to you, but to me, hidden underneath  
is a support for some of Trumps policies, immigration restrictions, bring back  
manufacturing.  'Everyone should go to college' is dumb.  A pushback against  
the liberal wokeness.  Maybe the offensive parts are there to piss you off so  
you won't read any further.
