I've long pointed out the majority of votes against NAFTA and China/WTO were from the left side of the D side of the aisle. As to whether, if in power they could have put intelligent and constructive policies in place we'll never know. That would be as opposed to WWE Reality TV theatrics.

 

But the likelihood of The Base ever joining forces with their truest culture war enemies on anything seems dim.

 

BTW, that was actually the brilliance of the whole game from the 80s forward- split the resistance into the most implacable of foes over other identity things.

I kind of wish there was an iggy function to put Obnoxious, Bruce and Slowboat on, and maybe just left the iggy on Bruce once a month to see if his plumb line ever returned to normal.

 

Nutz has virtually nothing to say, just a bitter jealous old fart that thinks he could have been a contender if only things had been different. Same for the other two, I guess.

 

They don't have any original thoughts except that if its a republican proposal, it must be bad.

The ravings of a mentally unstable piece of Queens tabloid trash unlikely to prove the equal of the exceptionally deft and formidable PRC leadership.

 

Although it was always mostly for domestic consumption anyway, and The Base is about as credulous a target as can be found.
