Political discourse.

So.  Some private conversation between Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren gets trafficked months and political eons later, where Sanders most plausibly meandered about at most what Hillary Clinton staffers muttered around after the last election and at least nodded that challenges existed for Warren, extrapolated now for

The Democratic race supposedly devolves into that of 2004 — except the discomfitting likely nominee — roughly the same age but sixteen years on — … I already noted Warren possessing the same problems as Dukakis of 88 … Sitting on the beach indulging in thick policy reading … Fun in the su

Shocking election result in the New Hampshire primary.  Vermin Supreme has won the Libertarian delegating race.  Who is Vermin Supreme?  Quite a bit like fellow libertarian candidate Lincoln Chafee… ran on multiple party platforms, most noted for the most outre stances on things, and latest race seems to be just w

Marianne Williamson is out.  You need Oprah to see if Oprah can win.  Cory “spartacus” is out… Weirdly indistinguishable from the rest, which means the “did race do him in?” Gets asked as others indistinguishable from the rest do better than he. Bloomberg continues to bombard the uninterested

President Donal Trump faces only token opposition from six other lesser known Republicans… It’s pretty well official.  Joe Walsh and Bill Weld equal Roque Dr la Fuente. (His son, running for some of the same seats, will be on the Democratic ticket.)

Hashtag wwwiii is apparently big right now. Certain recalibrations decalibrate as Trump takes up the policy preferences of your John Boltons. International answer holds an underwhelming protest and I can’t for the life of me decide if the lack of democrats is good or bad — on one hand, politically you want no pa

Welcome to a new year.  Trump — supposedly oh so reticent on deploying troops– (his best feature) has ripped up not so much goodwill in Iraq as relative I’ll will toward Iran and Lindsey Graham promised it won’t be Benghazzi again.  Nay. .. Not Obama’s and Hillary’s molehill of a scanda

The cbc’s removal of trump from home alone 2 for apolitical time constraints makes sense.  The problem with the argument against that — the brevity of his appearance — which is the argument of outrage on chef’s explanation you get on the internets to those who care and can be taken aback personally

Interesting trio of levels of partisanship  coming out of washington. Obviously impeachment is high partisanship with perhaps Manchin and Collins the slight shift in the senate. Then there is the new trade deal.  As with Clinton and nafta it is one party’s president taking up the others ‘ issue for political g

I’m stumbling to explain the supposed origins of ‘ok’.  I state me stream goes to Martin can buren, but lest i state his nickname that just makes no sense. The teenagers move on about what the ok signal means at their high school.  Do it low, and when your pal looks down you get to […]

Couldn’t Tulsi Gabbard have gone the “Arlen Specter” route, and cited Scottish Law — if not the precise Scottish Law that Specter found for the “not proven, therefor not guilty” canard — to come up with something other than “yah”, “nay”, or “presentR

  The politics of Impeachment. Oh yeah, the whole hypocrisy angle on the Republican side. Edmund G Ross, reconsidered. Fighting King County’s homeless problem… hm?

Apparently you can’t be seen using the ok sign anymore.  Internet trolls that get aligned to the label “alt right” have taken it, much as gangs frequently do with sports team uniforms.

Sometime after Trump’s time in office expires — hopefully after the next election — I think we’ll come back around to admitting that — on occasion — the President could be funny.  Instance: “They got rid of the lightbulb that people got used to. The new bulb is many times more expensiv

Someone from Sinclair Broadcasting (or is it Fox News?) asks Nancy Pelosi the ever so pertinent question… Do you hate Trump?  I suppose if I want to bend over backward to be overly fair, this was the leading question you got for Bush on trying to get some admission of some mistake, or something.  As […]

Kamala Harris is out.  Which means… Julian Castro and Cory Booker see an opportunity to scoop up… to revitalize… all that Kamala Harris support that’s out there… It’s there for the taking.  I mean, they better.  Otherwise it’s just Michael Bloomberg steam-rolling to the nominatio

The dilemma of it all is that when a politician splits or sails down in the polls, the blame accrues to “racist sexist”, when — say — your Senator Harris has her own damned faults irrespective of her status as a black women.  (The corner of the Obama coalition who was actually elected, she’s q

We’re back at that point in Colin Kaepernick controversy where, in order to make the argument, what you have to do is dump on as many nfl quarterbacks as you can.  When last I noted this, it was Richard Sherman — then of the Seahawks — to his credit bringing the Kaepernick’s career past that “

Michael Coudrey, an entrepreneur and activist with more than 180,000 Twitter followers, posted a message on Wednesday that Kentucky had switched to machines that scanned votes and provided no paper backup, and “oddly enough the entire state turns blue.” He’s like a Democrat after 2004.  Randi Rhodes shouting R

What a weird news story. Of all the hidden messages a politician can relay. Relayed in the most cryptic of fashions. Sent to all those twitter followers to be picked up by right wing news sources paying attention. Hardly any plausible deniability to fall back on. Impeach him, I say. Paul Gosar has to go! […]

The state of British elections, everybody!
