    but I am going to say it anyway and if I catch hell I catch hell.

    At some point, you have to admit that you are playing a major part in the perpetual cycle of your being serially treated unfairly. If you have been waiting for sanity to return to a bunch of thugs since your college aged son or daughter was in diapers, you need to stop waiting for Godot. If the only thing you haven't done is give them hell, you might as well give them hell and see what happens. It can't hurt.

    The Democrats being wimps and the GOP being bullies is pretty much legendary in our politics and our discourse.

    They will never stop on their own. Ever.

    There is no shame, no outrage, no smear so great that it wakes them up to behaving like decent fair-minded people and institutions. It's not fair. Life isn't fair.

    Get a fucking helmet, and punch a bully in the nose.

    You aren't alone. There are millions of us. Tens of
    millions of us.

    What are they going to do if the Democrats fight back?

    Is the GOP going to make shit up and lie?

    Is the Village going to cover the two parties unfairly?

    That's been the status quo since the Reagan years.

    It can't get worse. It can't. The coverage of the Democratic Party is practically dictated by the Movement Conservative Right. What is unfair to say about a conservative is pretty much dictated by the Conservative movement. And they still call them the liberal news media. It's a joke.

    So don't be in on the joke.

    The Village is the way it is because the Village became a toady to make their own abuse at the hands of the Movement Conservative Right stop. They are Theon become Reek from Game of Thrones.

    Better to be feared than chase attaboys and kudos from Fred Hiatt and the lovely people who put Lara Logan on 60 Minutes and Judy Miller above the fold of the NYTs and who never fail to find a job for Tucker Carlson.
