JanicetheElder posted this yesterday, it bears repeating:
Unfortunately rather than following Breitbart’s recommendations, RINOs have instead adopted one of the most annoying tactics of the Progressive Left: virtue signaling. Except in RINO-World it’s used to discredit one of their own rather than the enemy – a unique play that generally allows the other team to score while you are still posturing and preening.
In case you don’t remember exactly how virtue signaling works here’s a good explanation from Acculturated: it is the popular modern habit of indicating that one has virtue merely by expressing disgust or favor for certain political ideas, cultural happenings, or even the weather. I would add “without having to do anything else.”
Case in point, Republicans stepping up to the mic to disavow Donald Trump:
Enough! Donald Trump should not be President. He should withdraw.
As a Republican, I hope to support someone who has the dignity and stature to run for the highest office in the greatest democracy on earth. – Condi Rice
“Cindy and I will not vote for Donald Trump,” – John McCain
“However, I’m a mom and an American first, and I cannot and will not support a candidate for president who brags about degrading and assaulting women.” – Senator Kelly Ayotte
Sorry, butt I remain firmly on the Trump-mobile even though he can be a jackass. Butt he’s our jackass. And remember, one strong man with the jaw of a jackass can slay 1000 Philistines.
And Samson said, With the jawbone of an ass, heaps upon heaps, with the jaw of an ass have I slain a thousand men.- Judges 15:16
And that’s your Sunday morning Bible lesson from MOTUS.
