Give it a listen, it's short and to the point. Barrett avoided/evaded more questions than she answered, and that should frighten everybody.

Dude doesn't even know what "full-time" means. Home-schooled, cut classes all the time in college, and now he's got some vague real estate occupation. Col. Morris Davis, on the other hand, doesn't know what "part-time" means, after a quarter of a century of active duty. There's only one real choice in this election.

Bolding mine, because these are issues that are already of major concern to many on the left. They know we're worried about it, thus we have been preconditioned to help in the dissemination of that disinformation. But here's where it gets really complicated: Some of these stories might be true. Black voters may get harassed in Missouri, an election system may get hacked in Arizona. But sharing the hell out of that story on Facebook or Twitter may also discourage people from voting. And that would make said disinformation a success. Facebook is going after some low-hanging fruit right now:

Yup. They just view it as a weakness anyway, so what's the point? They're either bald-faced liars, or willing to believe obvious lies. And when backed into a corner on such lies, instead of admitting to the inaccuracy they resort to whataboutism. Don't waste your time.

You know, if BergerMoore had shown half the energy they're showing now during their recent "session" they might have actually accomplished some things for the state. But of course you can't hold fundraisers while in session, so...
