How interesting. The video appears to be banned in Australia, Steve. I guess they don't figure NZ is worth bothering about!

That's odd, it's just Trevor Noah, one of the popular late night show hosts...

I can't remember all the details but it starts with multiple complaints of sexual impropriety when he was in college, then moves on to the lies he told about the accident that put him in a wheelchair (he said his mate who was driving left him to die), then some nonsense about Yale and Harvard (who didn't want him because of lack-lustre marks) and then more lies about how his accident stopped him from taking up a place at an illustrious military academy (they had already turned him down BEFORE the accident.)

Standard fare for the young GOPers.

Yes, he's a real peach. Pretty standard for Republican politicians.

And back in the news over the last couple of days for trying to walk onto a plane carrying a loaded gun!

Even some Republicans are lining up to share their distaste - probably the ones who invited him to orgies and drug-taking!

In certain contexts Cawthorn has been a convincing debater, and his looks and charisma got him his confessional seat. His total lack of personal integrity makes him a major liability for the Republican Party, and his treatment of women raises major flags. It is sad and pathetic that he got divorced the same year he got married. Regardless of anyone's political persuasion, we should all hope voters reject him before he is able to do more damage.

Ahh, yes, the convincing debater with charm. I once had a very interesting discussion on here with someone not here any more. Steve/CD you remember, he appeared on religious forum a lot, total opposite politically to us but I enjoyed debating with him, just can't for the life of me think of his name...

Anyway, he asked who the great influencers and orators on the left were. I named a few folk, British mainly, so he'd be forgiven for not knowing them, so I shared the odd clip, etc. Took me a while to work out that he and I had a different understanding of what made a great political influencer/orator. What he meant was what I think of as the 'used car salesman' politician.

There's a lot of, to use the old-fashioned word, 'Spivs' in American politics. Charming salesmen who win the public over by their ability to switch on the charm and tell folk what they want to hear. They've got all the patter, and maybe they are great in debates, or at least good at making you think they are.

Those who are less inclined to buy the novelty can opener you know will break after 5 minutes just because the salesman has a nice smile and a way with words tend to view charm, etc, with rather more caution.

The big worry is that so many of these really extreme candidates are getting elected and so become a united force in their party.

I mean all of us can think of the odd nutty MP, right? But when you get a whole bunch of nuts acting as a group then there's somehow a necessity to take them seriously to some extent.

Maybe the bigger worry is that there is a majority of voters in their electorate that actually puts them into power. The leadership of the part also holds some responsibility. Was Cawthorne even disciplined for his outrageous comments about orgies and drug-taking by senior figures in his own party? Boebert and green for being on their feet screaming at Biden during the State of the Union?

Democratic failures spawn the successes of extremists in the other party. If Democrats continue to preside over high inflation, a battered stock market, high energy prices, lazy immigration policies, megawoke policies, and bypassing Congress to pay off and kiss the feet of tyrants in Iran, they can expect a larger backlash and loss of more congressional seats. Harambe is not a Republican but He will laugh when the Democrats lose.
