Political discourse.

A Feminist store of some good location has the sign … “Before there was Clinton, there was Chisholm.” Sure.  But before there was Chisholm, there was Woodhull. Between them, there was Margaret Chase Smith. Two poles of “respectability”, Woodhull had an eccentric spirituality, and Smith was a R

Did Lawrence Dennis consider himself a fascist?  Self described?  Yes, I know he was tagged with the label at the time, and at the outset of the war was charged with sedition charges alongside co-defendants he had that “one of these things is not like the other” quality against.  And I guess his uber objectiv

On William Weld, we get comments like this: Bush and Jimmy Carter lost their bids for a second term after facing challenges from inside their party. Sure.  And Obama successfully fended off his primary challenges — John Wolfe, Jr. and Keith Russell Judd, and Jim Rogers — all of whom garnered a hefty percentage

Dividing the headlines for the obits for lyndon larouche into various categories.  I do like the attempts — ‘Queen Elizabeth is a drug pusher’ conspiracy theorist dies at 96 — as though we need to figure out what, who, what you may have known him as, vaguely. For the most part it’s “Poli

So.  What is his legacy? We note that the Executive Intelligence Review, the publication of his cult, has been wont to start mis-spelling his name. In the early rounds, no major news source of “wikipedia notability level” is getting it up, and we’re stuck with twitter feeds. His “twitter feed”

I was wondering about that National Inquirer article bursting forth on juicy news on the personal life of Jeff Bezos… … like, this can’t really be a big seller, can it? As it turned out… No.  Maybe we should as a society care, even a little dirtily, about Jeff Bezos, but apparently we don’t.

I find it difficult to imagine Louis CK’s current act can persist in much the same matter it is right now, and suspect his current 15 minutes of fame (or, if you’re disposed to the view, infamy) as mocker of his disgrace status can’t sustain past the new 15 minutes… maybe he’ll evolve and evolv

So.  Apparently, Nancy Pelosi is “winning” on the Wall, encrusted as it is in the big government shut down.  Of course she is.  The Wall is a stupdifying idea, something a more adroit politician could back track to some grand “border security” premise.  It is sort of baked into the cake. And alwa

It looks like Harry Reid has endorsed Mitt Romney for a 2020 run… A number of ways you can look at this.  We’re in line with Bill Maher’s re-calibrated “If I knew what was coming, I’da supported Romney” revisionism.  We’ve got the two party duopoly and the interchange of a “

What does President Trump think about the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan, and who’d he get it from? Shoe. Fine.  Silly season continues about on all ends. No one cares about AOC dancing.

Welcome to Hell. Sticking to this claim: They’ve allowed their tool to be used by a foreign nation to subvert democracy and seek to suppress African-American votes.

We get one of those flyers on a free box (WW or PM or one of those) mocking Trump as a 400 pound lard and a lard for Democracy, or some such… … and an angry flyer placed in the next box declaring that “Fat shaming your political enemy is fat shaming your political comrades, […]

Biden / Romney 2020!!! Um.  Er. Theoretically, Biden is “in the lead” for the 2020 Democratic primary presidential ticket, so say national polls.  Then again, Joseph Lieberman was at this point rolling into 2004, and everyone knew not to take that seriously.  The problem this time out is… … and ma

All the votes weren’t counted in Airzona, and Krysten Sinema moved from being behind to being ahead.  It happens.  Not really anything to see here, other than a strange desire to declare victories on election night.  What would have been ironic had Sinema lost is that she’d have lost with the aid of the Green
