Befuddled Virtue Signaling

“The entire point of the entire Russia thing is simply Virtue Signaling.
If YOU hold values contrary to the Progressive Left, YOU will be labeled a Russian Stooge.”

I am Mark Canha sorry about not being here yesterday. The day wasn’t the brilliant success I’d hoped for, but it was still great to get away with Cami, Ben, and our daughter. We had a wonderful lunch in Elbe, and then got completely lost on the mountain drive. It was great!
