In case you missed this, Dana Rohrabacher was interviewed by his friends at Breitbart the other day. The session lasted about 15 minutes, and it was Dana at his best. Which, if I’m being honest, means Dana rambling, stumbling, bumbling about this and that, that and this.
You can all but hear the interviewer, Rebecca Mansour, trying to carry the three-legged horse across the finish line by tossing him one slab of red meat after another. And, indeed, Rohrabacher touched on all the arch-conservative talking points the listeners and readers of Breitbart surely love.
But here’s the thing: Dana Rohrabacher isn’t running to represent far-right media. Nope. He lives here, in increasingly purple/blue South Orange County, and the words that appeal to Rush Linbaugh and Sean Hannity don’t, generally, fly in these parts.
Which leads to my favorite part:
As I’ve said repeatedly on this site, the 48th isn’t in Mississippi or Kentucky. It’s not in Arkansas or Tennessee. Nope. It’s a progressive, advanced world, where voters (again—generally) don’t fall for idiot scare tactics. Most of us know about the bullshit nonsense that is the migrant caravan, and how this supposed threat to our nation is anything but.
So keep praising Donald Trump, Dana.
