Bill James on Democrats by Mysterio 09/25/2020, 2:04pm PDT
Here is a question that baseball guy Bill James took.

I feel compelled to ask this question, although I am most certainly not proposing to turn Hey Bill into a political debate--which for the most part you have indicated you don't want to do either. But from time to time you throw out teasers such as "he things the Democratic Party have done in the last two or three years are mortifying." Just so that those of us who respect and value your thinking even when we vigorously disagree with it . . . could you list a few of those "things"?


Here is his answer:

Suppose that you said that Donald Trump tells a lot of untruths, some of them lies and some of them just excessively careless of the facts. Suppose then that someone else said, "What are you talking about? What lies has Donald Trump ever told?" What you would think?

What you would think is that there is no point in explaining anything to that person, because if you cannot SEE that Donald Trump lies with great regularity, it is because you do not choose to see it, and, more than that, that you choose to deny it. You have built up defenses against it; you have a story to cover every event.

And the same thing with the grossly inappropriate and disgusting behavior of the Democratic Party over the last few years. If you cannot see this, that can only be that you choose to deny it, that you have built up defenses against it. You have a story to cover every outrage. So there is no point in talking to you. If you cannot see this on your own, you're lost.


To me that's an absolute chickenshit answer given by someone who, mentally, is an infant. "Ohh if you don't know what they are I can't EVEN tell you." He's being a pussy about it but the people here are harder than he is. What disgusting acts by the Democrats do you think he's referring to, Caltrops?
