Most phallic Hatch Act violation ever:

I saw a bumper-sticker on a Prius once that summarized the underlying pathology behind these types of displays pretty well: Little Dick, Big Truck. As a member of a family who owns an F-250, I must point out that some people really do NEED big trucks. But there’s truth to the bumper-sticker insult all the same.
One of my redneckiest druncles exulted as follows after Trump’s election, “At least he has balls.”
He meant it literally on one level, which I understood. But I’ve never understood how anyone could think that about Trump in the metaphorical sense. Trump slathers on foundation like a common Tammy Faye. He talks about using hair spray in public, which would have prompted my druncle to respond with a homophobic slur from any other man. He’s a draft-dodging chickenshit who can’t even fire people to their faces despite that being the tagline from his reality TV show.
They’re all chickenshits. Here’s Rand Paul getting heckled by protesters after the rally last night:

Here’s Rand Paul describing that same incident:
Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., told “Fox & Friends” he believes he would have been killed if not for the police when he and his wife were surrounded and attacked by a “mob” yelling threats and pushing police upon exiting the White House after President Trump’s acceptance speech at the Republican National Convention (RNC) Thursday night.
“It was horrific,” the Republican senator — who had part of his lung removed due to a complication from the 2017 assault by his neighbor — told host Steve Doocy of the “unhinged” mob that continued to get bigger and bigger.
“They’re attempting to push the police over to get to me, so at one point they push a policeman backwards, he stumbles and he’s trying to catch his balance and I catch the back of his flak jacket to stabilize him to make sure he’s OK because he’s our defense,” Paul explained. “If he’s down, the mob’s loose on us.”
“I truly believe this with every fiber of my being, had they gotten at us they would have gotten us to the ground, we might not have been killed, might just have been injured by being kicked in the head, or kicked in the stomach until we were senseless,” he explained.
Good lord, what a bunch of crybaby snowflakes these macho tough guys are. This is why I’m not all that worried about violence if Trump gets kicked to the curb in November. There are nuts like the Trump-supporting Kenosha shooter and the white supremacist who killed Heather Heyer. But most of the super-fans are chickenshits with big mouths, just like Rand Paul and Trump himself. I’m pretty confident I could shoo them off my porch with a broom. Open thread!
