What in the wide, wide world of sports makes Bolton think he has a chance in hell of winning the nomination?   :facepalm:
If there really was intelligent life on other planets, we'd be sending them foreign aid.

Conservatives see George Orwell's "1984" as a cautionary tale.  Progressives view it as a "how to" manual.

Liberals believe one should never let reason, logic and facts get in the way of a good emotional argument.

He figures considering who's POTUS and VICE-POTUS, anyone has a shot.

And then there's fundraising, which - if one is careful about crossing their T's and dotting their I's - can be personally very lucrative.
Trump won in 2016. Democrats haven't been so offended since Republicans came along and freed their slaves.

That makes sense.  He's in it for personal gain, not actually being elected President.

Same thing was said about Trump early on, although I expect things will go quite differently for Bolton.
In the moral, catatonic stupor America finds itself in today it is only disagreement we seek, and the more virulent that disagreement, the better.

Looks like Bolton was misquoted.

With the document leaks, I guess the deep state is showing Biden the door. Now we really have a circus.
