Political discourse.

ITEM NUMBER ONE:  Ron Paul versus Lyndon Larouche, election results It is, I suppose, apples and oranges — though apples and oranges are similar enough to compare.  All of Ron Paul’s endorsed candidates were statewide and not necessarily running on a program — frankly, it’s a little difficult to de

You know… Chuck Klosterman’s book I Wear the Black Hat… Doesn’t really stand up to the test of time.  Or at least some of his villains and some of his “escaped villainry”… There are three things that stick out here… #1:  Bill Clinton.  In this book, Clinton sails away.  No

That last senate race of 2018, the Mississippi Special run off election, shifts slightly in he Dem’s favor, chances moving from none to slight — making a whole trajectory of slight to none to slight again. And the reason for the race tightening. Yet the trajectory of the election was thrown into doubt last week

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

I think when Nate Silver and 538 conjure up a narrow loss by Beto O’Rourke as a good thing for his 2020’s presidential ambitions because it leaves him unencumbered, that he is joking. I … think. But now I get this “take away” from David Frum positing something of the opposite. If Beto O’Rourk

My bi-annual search on the continued existence… in one form or other… by ballot… of the Natural Law Party. It still exists in Michigan.  For the hobby candidates. “Less than 2 percent of the vote”.  Which is plenty. The “Modern Whig Party” got a boost from David Brooks, who refere

Joe Donnelly pumpin up facebook ads for the libertarian.  Wait.  Wasn’t this what Putin was up to in the last election?

Joe Donnelly, going for that Indiana minority vote: “Our state director is Indian American, but he does an amazing job. Our director of all constituent services, she’s African American, but she does an even more incredible job than you could ever imagine. It isn’t their race or their religion, it’s the incredibl

Curious enough to look up “Robert Bowers”.  Received a list of six pages on facebook I’m afraid to log in to see if any of them lead with “Not.  That.  Robert Bowers.” I do wonder what that’d be like when someone gains a notoriety — to have his / her name.

Was Gary Hart set up? “Democrats have become the party of crime,” President Donald Trump declared on Thursday night at a rally in Missoula, Montana. At the same rally, Trump praised as “my kind of guy” a member of Congress who violently attacked a reporter, choked him, and then lied to the police about his […]

Arizona: Oh, the stupid controversies conjured up by a past political life.  A past association with “witches” leads to the question “… Is Kyrsten Sinema the Democrats’ Christine O’Donnell”?  (Though Sinema mainly seemed to be going for an aesthetic artistic statement with her pol

California:  The peculiar logic of the state’s “top two” primary.  Two Democrats are in the general election.  One is Dianne Feinstein, long a partisan foil of derision but made more so for her actions during the Kavanaugh hearings.  Running against her, to her left, is Kevin De Leon. … who ̷

I see the National Review is running columns raving about the genius of the Founding Fathers for establishing a system where the Senate map of 2018 would be so heavily tilted toward the Republicans and conservative-wise. None of this is to suggest that the Kavanaugh effect is not real. It is just to serve as […]

Conventional wisdom... and we gauge the purple states turn blue and the red states move further red for this election.

The conventional wisdom has it that Kavanaugh is a loser for the Republicans in the US House, and — because of the sheer non democratic nature of the Senate and the terrain it’s being battled on — perhaps a winner for the US Senate. And so goes a calculus in nationalizing the election and letting […]

#1:  Phil Bredesen has made the announcement that he’s not voting for Chuck Schumer for Senate leader.  I’m not really sure how this plays out, in a 50-49 Senate.  Can Schumer organize with a 50-49-1 vote? It’s a stand in for what he had been planning to differentiate himself from the national Democrat
