    I've seen one allegation that Trump didn't put much/any effort into House races, and this was because losing the House might actually help him in the long run. I haven't seen backup for where he was campaigning, though.
    Enter the Church and wash away your sins. For here there is a hospital and not a court of law. Do not be ashamed to enter the Church; be ashamed when you sin, but not when you repent. St. John Chrysostom

    The answer to my question, but that's OK - I no longer care.

    1 Tim 2:5 For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus.

    The response around here, at least, seems to be more like, "Yeah, pretty much what was expected."
    But that's Trump. He crows because he makes the sun come up each morning.

    I provided the definition. I didn't provide examples. I think I'll let you roll back through this thread to find examples from the right. You can check the Twitter feeds of almost any Republican or Democratic winner in Congress for examples from both the left and right. Trump's posts tweets are another good example. Watch Fox or CNN for any 10 minute period for more examples.

    That was part 2 of the original question - I'll leave you to your games.

    CP - sometimes you can be a turd. I read your post, responded to the second question, and forgot you had asked a first one. There was no game intended, which is why I asked if I had missed something - and I apparently had. So let me help you with an actual civil exchange:

    CP post -
    CD response -
    CP: Umm.. Carpe... you only answered one of my questions. Was there a reason you didn't answer the other?
    CD: Oops...sorry about that CP...I forgot the first question by the time I finished answering the second - my bad. Here's the other answer.
    CP: Thanks! That helps me understand a bit.
    CD: NP. Thanks for your patience.

    See how easy that is...? And it even goes so far as to assume the other person is not intentionally trying to be a turd.

    You can be even turdier, as demonstrated in this post where you COULD have simply answered the question and not gotten so turdial. Trying to get a straight answer from you sometimes is like trying to nail M1A1 Main Battle Tanks to Rose Bushes!

    ETA: In fact, you're the TURDIEST! So there!

    I did answer your question - as soon as you pointed out that my answer was incomplete. Actually - you didn't even bother to do that - you gave me the very informative "I give up." I had no idea what you were talking abut and asked, and got the very adult and helpful, "The answer to my question, but that's OK - I no longer care." Since I HAD answered your question (I thought) I was seriously perplexed. That made me go back to the original post, where I realized I had missed a question, which I proceeded to answer. So then I (finally) got "That was part 2 of the original question" - I'll leave you to your games." and your quote of my post excluded the answer to the first question.

    Really CP - you could have done a LOT better on just plain civility on this one.

    And this exchange has now gone on long enough - I'll leave it to you.
