Thomas Hofeller preached secrecy as he remapped American politics from the shadows. The Republican Party operative, known as the master of the modern gerrymander, trained other G.O.P. operatives and legislators nationwide to secure their computer networks, guard access to their maps, and never send e-mails that they didn’t want to see published by the news media. In training sessions for state legislators and junior line drawers, he used a PowerPoint presentation that urged them to “avoid recklessness” and “always be discreet,” and warned that “emails are the tool of the devil.”

I'm a republican (although I'm more of a right leaning independent) and I completely don't understand why people gave a single solitary fuck about that, just like I couldn't understand why people were complaining about the windows in Marco Rubio's house.Why did they cry when Obama wore a tan suit? Why do they care what one non Democrat from New York City wears? Because they know most Americans are shallow tabloid addicted gossips.
Most Americans are shallow tabloid addicted gossips. They "give a fuck" because humans have been conditioned to be class conscious. They watch the Kardashians, just as they had watched Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous, before that they watched the Pope and religious figures in splendid finery, it's not new.I completely don't understand why people gave a single solitary fuck about that
I'm much more interested in this. You place a modifying clause after stating your party. Why?I'm a republican (although I'm more of a right leaning independent)
I can't speak for him but I'll give you my own two cents: because no one is any one particular thing. No one agrees with one single party on 100% of the issues 100% of the time. We're operating in a binary Rep/Dem arena but in reality there is much more to it than that. For example it's easy for me to just identify as a Republican but in reality there are things I don't like about Trump and there are things that I agreed on with Obama. This is even more pronounced in libertarian circles - I'm pretty libertarian but I sure as hell don't agree with the anarchists in the party.I'm much more interested in this.

Did I ever... wait, wut?
The joke would be if he's a registered Republican. Though I'd be willing to bet the numbers of Communist registered Republican dwarfs the number registered with the CPUSA. They seem like the type of people who get ironic humor.Do you actually support communism or is this some sort of joke?
