The Erdogan Republicans

Mike McFaul, though a Republican, is personally embarrassed.

"Embarrassed for my country by this chant at #RNC2016 "lock her up." Dictatorships lock up the opposition, not democracies"

Honestly, to hear them shriek this, it might as well been 'Off with her head' or 'Thou shalt not suffer a witch to live!'

To be sure, they were chanting this last night as well. The lightning rod tonight? Chris Christie.

"Chris Christie Suggests Hillary Clinton Was To Blame For Boko Haram’s Kidnapping Of Hundreds Of Schoolgirls."

"Christie said “every region of the world has been infected with her flawed judgment.”

"New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R) suggested during a speech at the 2016 Republican National Convention on Tuesday that presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton was to blame for the kidnapping of hundreds of Nigerian schoolgirls by the Islamic extremist group Boko Haram."

"Christie said “every region of the world has been infected with her flawed judgment,” citing Clinton’s resistance to adding Boko Haram to the terrorist watch list."

“What happened because of this reckless action by the candidate who is the self-proclaimed champion of women around the world? These terrorists abducted hundreds of innocent young girls two years ago,” Christie said. “These schoolgirls are still missing today.

“What was the solution from the Obama/Clinton team? A hashtag campaign!” Christie continued, referencing the #BringBackOurGirls campaign that went viral in 2014.

Joy Reid:

These set ups for roaring declarations of "guilty!" by Christie have an almost warlord-like quality to them."

"That was a scary piece of demagoguery by Christie. Delegates ate it up. Too hot for tv?"

"It had a certain Roman coliseum feel..."

Hillary had a great response though.

"If you think @ChrisChristie can lecture anyone on ethics, we have a bridge to sell you."

It's amazing how those in the biggest glass houses throw the most stones.


  1. "It's amazing how those in the biggest glass houses throw the most stones."

    Yes, exactly. They must be mis-wired such that when their shame neurons fire it feels orgasmic.

  2. Hey, Mike, this isn't much, but it's something: Bill S. (RedState moderator) has been saying "Trump must lose all 50 states" in comments recently, but this pretty much confirms where he's at regarding actually voting for Hillary:

    There's about a 75% chance that I will vote for Hillary and no Trumpublicans. He must lose and lose badly and I'll do whatever it takes to ensure it.

    1. ... Now if only about 10 million other hard core conservatives in swing states felt the same way.

    2. Plus that post contains a video with Leon Wolf in it, if you're curious what he looks like (it's of two bald white guys, but he's the taller one on the right)

    3. I think Leon is now head hancho at RedState.
