The lasting damage will be all the judge appointments.

if it is possible for those judges. I'm no longer shocked that republicans will approve nominees designated as "unqualified" by the ABA or whoever gives those ratings.

could be the most conservative city in AZ because it's residents are mostly Christians and/or Mormons. The rest of the city are snow birds.

And a wall street/big business party?

They would still be allies on specific bills though.

14. Flake to Trump: "I think I would be a perfect foil for you."

Flake is a fake. Like most Republicans, he votes to yank food out of the mouths of poor children in order to stuff more money into the offshore bank accounts of billionaires. Trump and Moore believe in doing the same things, and Flake's only objection to them is that they LOOK so stupid while they're doing it.

Gilles telling him to be a 'foil' for Trump in 2020 just reminded me of that golden scene from the old Larry Sanders show, where Hank is looking for another job, and he tries to convince Robin Williams that he'd be a good sidekick for him.

At the 1:20 mark:

Robin: "I'm sorry I was in your face earlier."

Hank: "Are you kidding? When you said my head reminded you of your penis after a cold swim, I was honored. In fact, I think I'd be a perfect foil for you..."


If Flake ever played a foil for Trump, it would be pretty much like that.

Or the kick off of the Flake for President campaign? Maybe there are no "accidents".

Sorry, I think everything they do is staged. Except the reality star prezdent.

his reaction when someone finally pointed to his lapel seemed genuinely "oh, shit."
