The more the campaign is about NDAs and tax returns, the more politics is trivialized and the more ridiculous Democrats look.
Populism will be the reason why we can’t have a nice Democratic President.
Tis weird that a candidate like Buttigieg, who has no apparent path to winning the nomination, is under such vicious attack from surrogates of other candidates who also lack a clear path to victory (i.e., Sanders and Warren). I suppose their outrage needed a new outlet after Beto quit.
It’s trendy to call Buttigieg a racist these days. So I wonder what to call this:
I think that having so many Southern states go first kind of distorts reality,” Sanders said during a taping of “The Nightly Show” on Comedy Central earlier this month …
As the field is weeded perhaps Klobuchar will attract more media attention. She doesn’t cry about lack of attention like Castro and Booker.
Darling Nikki Haley is definitely running and has just locked down the vote of the Confederacy.
Clinton wouldn’t have cut food stamps. But Berniebros/brosettes said there was no difference between Clinton and Trump.
So much for their political wisdom!
Pelosi puts her boots on the necks of Kremlin-affiliated Republicans.
Pence misses his old names: Son of perdition. Little horn! Most unclean!
Homeland is basically the Trump Russia/Ukrainegate + Tulsi Gabbard.
USWNT win the World Cup.
It was brilliant to schedule the Gold Cup Final on the same day as the World Cup in France. It illustrates the gap between the American men and women. If anything, it shows the American men should be paid less than the American women.
Neoliberalism and the establishment media hold back the US men’s team.
Cory Booker is more sorry that he’s polling at 1%-3%
Booker just realized he can no longer ride Harris’ coattails on the busing issue. He’s likely more disturbed by the fact that his poll numbers remain as low as they were before he chimed in.
I love Bern’s email blasts, full of desperate pleading and seething with resentment. I think he and his team know his revolution is quixotic, and that his nomination hopes lack any basis in political reality.
Tsipras was schooled by Merkel and played by Varoufakis. Now he’s out of power.
Pelosi has been chewing up and spitting out political newbies like AOC for years.
AOC is a Perónista. Go figure.
The only thing missing from Trump’s militaristic Fourth of July was Leni Riefenstahl.
Jerry Falwell Jr is a convenience store Christian.
The Boston Tea Party would be labeled fascist by today’s right and neoliberal/cultural appropriationist by today’s left.
Re Harris and Biden:
Busing (federally mandated or not) isn’t one that will flip the Senate or win Ohio, PA, and Wisconsin for Democrats. I can’t think of anyone who even talks about busing anymore. It is juicy journalistic clickbait though.
Integration (which is the point of busing) was deemed illegitimate during the rise of multiculturalism and the emphasis on difference in the 1980s/90s. It seems to be an odd issue to revive just for the sake of sticking it to Biden.
Busing has no political relevance today unless one of the Dems is pushing it (and I believe none of them are).
The problem for Harris is that Booker is riding her coattails on this issue and won’t let it die (even if Harris moves on from it).
However, Booker isn’t getting a bounce in poll numbers from his kerfuffle with Biden (his campaign barely has a pulse). Probably needs to shift tactics and targets.
Since Biden’s “bipartisanship” led to this dispute, one should note that it is a dead virtue because (1) right-wingers are no longer in the Democratic Party (see Robert Byrd, segregationist) and (2) it was easier to be bipartisan in the era of earmarks (which the GOP controlled Senate has banned under the influence of the House “Freedom Caucus”).
Jacobin Magazine says AOC is August Bebel 2.0.
Electoral college math suggests the election will be won or lost in Wisconsin, Michigan, PA, and Ohio, not Queens, NY.
Most NY Times pundits don’t do research and rely on projection and innuendo. One sees it in Stephens, Brooks, Bouie, and Dowd (to name a few).
Trump’s presidency is an ongoing series of felonies. He’ll be in exile in Russia long before a President Harris can get her hands on him.
Let Trump have his war with Iran. It will put to an end the 2016 claim from Bernistan that in contrast to Clinton, Trump was a peacemaker.
A few of the Democrats running for the nomination haven’t made it to the debate stage. There are no orange slices and trophies for finishing 21st.
I keep confusing Bullock with Bulworth.
Nothing against Cory Booker, but the last President associated with Stanford didn’t work out so well.
Anti-vaxxer Jessica Biesles has torpedoed her career.
Sarah Sanders is going straight to the hot place, where her soul will be cleansed by eternal hellfire. She delivered a masterclass in lying every time she appeared on camera.
This resignation brings joy to all rational people.
Larry Kudlow is openly senile.
It would be good to give up the idea that you’re smarter and better at politics than Pelosi.
Amanda Knox is in Italy. Excellent trolling, Ms Knox.
