Republican multimillionaire Greg Gianforte won Montana's only U.S. House seat on Thursday despite being charged a day earlier with assault after witnesses said he grabbed a reporter by the neck and threw him to the ground. Instead, the win reaffirmed Montana's voters support for Trump's young presidency in a conservative-leaning state that voted overwhelmingly for him in November. Gianforte dropped out of sight after he was cited by police and ignored calls on Thursday by national Republicans for him to apologize to the reporter.GOOD, by fucking god. Not despite, because. The AP "reporters" couldn't allow themselves to understand the real reason for the victory. It's not primarily about Trump, because most Trump supporters now understand that Trump is not a Trump supporter. It's mostly about "reporters". We're onto your infinite infinite wickedness and your depravity beyond all conceivable bounds. We LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE to see you slammed to the ground. As you might say in a different context, slamming you to the ground is only a tiny tiny tiny tiny tiny baby step in the correct direction.

Polistra was named after the original townsite of Manhattan (the one in Kansas). When I was growing up in Manhattan, I spent a lot of time exploring by foot, bike, and car. I discovered the ruins of an old mill along Wildcat Creek, and decided (inaccurately) that it was the remains of the original site of Polistra. Accurate or not, I've always liked the name, with its echoes of Poland (an under-appreciated friend of freedom) and stars. ==== The title icon is explained here. ==== Switchover: This 2007 entry marks a sharp change in worldview from neocon to pure populist. ===== The long illustrated story of Polistra's Dream is a time-travel fable, attempting to answer the dangerous revision of New Deal history propagated by Amity Shlaes. The Dream has 8 episodes, linked in a chain from the first. This entry explains the Shlaes connection.
