Shakesville: Meet the Candidates!  Tronald Dump

Now, I’ve skimmed (tl;dr) some of your complaints about how the Democrats are using abortion rights as a bargaining chip with the Republicans, and about how the Democratic executive and Democratic Senate majority aren’t doing bupkis to create a counter-narrative to the national onslaught of anti-abortion bills in state legislatures, and about how the Democrats throw women’s rights under the bus every time it’s politically expedient, and about how the current Democratic president uses language that plays to rightwing frames on abortion rights, and all the rest of that gobbledygook, and, frankly, I don’t find your arguments very compelling.

Partly that’s because I didn’t really bother reading them (hysterical), but mostly it’s because I’m mad that you’re going to ruin everything for the rest of us with your principles (wtf).

I need to get elected to protect your rights, ladies, and if that means I have to occasionally undermine your rights to do it, that’s just how the game is played. You just don’t understand politics, is all. It’s very sophisticated stuff.
