Which obviously recalls this page.

Compared to some of the batshit, outright offensive stuff this administration is already pushing, this actually seems like a pretty reasonable project, yes?

I don't think you can legally put the words "reasonable" and "this administration" in the same sentence...

Bravo on the right-wing spank-fodder, though. :P

Most of the good bits of dialogue here date from two hours prior to publication... hell with buffers.

And I wouldn't assume that Tona's sold on this plan, no sir.

Trump is a reality TV star prone to narcissistic behaviour. He has enough chutzpah I could easily imagine him making a TV show out of political intimidation. If this is one of his plans it probably won't start airing episodes until the fall season though: It takes time to hire management, find talent, gather crew, build sets, write scripts, rehearse, film, and edit.

But think back a little, and remember that Reagan had the FBI hunting for porn. I'm not Trump, but if I had his power, enemies list, and enough vengeful insanity, I'd make some 'special units' in the US federal security services to do my dirty work. With a little bit of preparation they can grab anyone that doesn't run as well as Edward Snowden. Drugs and kiddie porn is all it takes, plant some in the right places, give 'an anonymous tip' to the right people, and it'll be YUUUUUUGE!

re: special units

It's not intimidation if nobody knows about it.

re: familiar faces

Yes, Wendell is back, he apparently survived the massacre at Fox Plaza.

You're right, but there are different kinds of publicity. In the above hypothetical scenario the goal is a chilling effect. If you can establish a pattern that all your most outspoken and inconvenient foes end up in ass-rape prison for 'legitimate reasons' that's good for making your opposition look bad on top of just intimidating people. It does tend to work a little slow, but that's a nice bonus you don't get if you just send in the brownshirts to kick the shit out of people without a plausible excuse.

Anyone see the 2006 movie idiocracy?

You aren't the first to bring it up, and it's gonna seem really, really weird, but no I haven't seen that movie...

The Palin burn is glorious.

The Palins don't really get into the news anymore, unless it's for allegations of domestic violence.

In my book John McCain gets negative points for that call.
