Apparently it's not easy to get laid in the capital if you're a Republican.

According to one unnamed Trump administration official, it's especially hard to land a date if you're affiliated with the White House. Sad!

'A lot of times you’ll connect with someone [on an app] and they’ll Google you, find out you worked for Trump’s campaign, and then it’s pretty much all downhill from there,' the official said.

A reporter for a right-wing media outlet told the Washingtonian he recently went out on a date that crashed and burned once the woman noticed some conservative books on his shelf. Even though the guy told her he didn't vote for Trump and considers himself a moderate conservative, she ended things there.

'She was like, 'I have to get out of here. I can’t see you,' and left,' he said.

It certainly is a powerful indication of how politically polarized America has become that it even transcends sex. There used to be a time when Americans of different points of view were able to listen and entertain opinions by others, while still engaging in discussion. If the polarization ratchets to new heights such as these, where conversation and disagreement are intolerable, it could very well eventually reach the point of civil war.

Leftists have always been anti-fascist, anti-racist, anti-misogynist, anti-imperialist, etc. Just because conservatives have felt emboldened to go out on an extremist limb, that doesn't make it a polarization. Lemmings on a limb are just lemmings on a limb.

No, it is an indication of how low Republicans have gone.

It ain't about opinion.

Working for the Trump campaign indicates a person that can subdue morality to win.

It is indeed a sad situation when your main source of prospective partners is frightened of even considering other ideas. Or, maybe they are frightened of the response of their peers if there was even the slightest chink in their orthodoxy.

This is silly anecdotal nonsense. It inspires a joke, which I'm afraid, even though it is not ad hominem, or disrespectful of editors, or does not mention any totems that so frightens liberals, there might be some reason for censure. And keep in mind that Meryl Ann Butler, managing editor, was free to use the c-word-word.

So, here it goes.

What is Rodeo Sex with a Liberal?

Answer: You hide all your books that show an interest in exploring ideas, put up some slogans on the wall. You meet a third wave feminist and take her out to a vegan restaurant, and talk about intersectionality.

You take her home and go over the contract where both of you agree that sexual conduct if initiated is consensual and there is no power differential and no one is trying to demonstrate any cultural, sexual or economic subtexts which would constitute abuse.

Then, when sex is in progress, you gently lean forward and whisper in her ear, "Make America Great!"

Since you ridiculed the whining of conservatives, certainly will be able to hear a joke that is not an endorsement of a behavior, is not happening in reality, and is merely a lampooning of the weird intolerance of anything other than yourselves. How diverse of you.

"It is indeed a sad situation when your main source of prospective partners is frightened of even considering other ideas."

Is there something unconsidered and worth considering about who Trump is and what he stands for?

Copyrighted Image? DMCA

Obama said that the war on ISIS held territories was decadal, the last geographic area held by ISIS is under siege. Where are the reports of soldiers killed in the Mideast? Obama said that the greatest risk for war in the world was North Korea, who knows how the situation will end, but there are no nuclear tests and no missile launches. That's more anti-war than the last 5 or 6 presidents.

There is production and historically high employment across all demographics. This includes the highest wage gains in the lowest earning quintile.

There is already benefits accrued from the so-called "trade wars" US Steel just spent a few hundred million restoring a steel plant in Gary, Indiana. The tariff disputes bring into focus the way treaties were signed to benefit the signatories rather than the American workers, Trump's confrontational style and his advocacy of the deplorables is old style populism and what keeps his popularity rising.

Other than that there is nothing to consider about Trump.

What I was lampooning was his adolescent nyah-nyah attempt at demeaning the sexuality or attractiveness of those whose politics he disagreed with. A real nothing-burger.

I would have misgivings about being emotionally involved with someone passionately drinking political Kool Aid of any flavor,but especially Trump flavored.

So, yeah, if I had gone on a date with someone in 2015 and found she was a dedicated HRC supporter I probably would have run the other way.

Exactly. The food fight is as endless as the edless war. Amazing how someone as bright and as dedicated to progressive issues as Rob would publish such an infantile article. On the other hand, what does it say about us for spending another five minutes we'll never get back for reading and commenting on it? ;-)
