@brentsimmons This gives me an idea. There should be some sort off spoiler tag for political posts for those who come to Micro.blog to stay away from politics.
As far as the firing, I’m surprised they were able to convince him to wait until the midterms. Sometimes, perhaps foolishly, I wish they would just let him off the leash. Then maybe the GOP wouldn’t be able to give him cover. Sounds reckless but I’m tired of having him dominate the national discourse.
@EddieHinkle one of the things I liked about MB in the beginning was the lack of politics. Now it’s become way more political, but I put it down to the election and am hoping that it dies down soon.
I don’t think a place like MB will foster the kind of dialog you’re talking about unfortunately. It’s too left leaning to enable that.
