Political discourse.

Hm. #1:  The author John Green is evidently the huge name in the “Young Adult novel” market.  I have heard any number of late teenagers on to 20 something years bad mouth the author as being disconnected from any high school life they know, sending  out a false message in propelling yet another variation of [

Heidi Heitkamp is gone.  Just looking at her re-election odds. On Nazi haircuts. Donald Trump: from crony capitalist business-man to crony capitalist politician. Who wrote an anti-DAKP editorial? when you’re a star, they let you do it. While others are playing checkers… On Obamacare… other view. image says so

An axis point of crony capitalism, demagoguery, and crass tabloid culture, the new Presidential administration takes the White House to the new-founded accommodation of the political party he over-took and may just be a natural extension of anyways, and the cheers of the “deplorable” group of a new Old Right pol

Man Outside Mosque in Texas. If Donald Trump were a Democrat… Where Donald Trump picked up the one about millions of illegal voters: Alex Jones.

She identifies herself as from South Carolina.  Man from Kansas asks “You a red state refugee too?” It takes two repeats for the meaning of this question to be understandable, so goes the polite laugh and “Sure.  Something like that.” Sometimes things are a little more apolitical, or if they are po

The Great Political Philosopher, George Washington Plunkitt, may have roughly the best hope for regarding President Donald Trump on the issue that he’s gravitating toward to seal “working class whites” that brought him the election.

J K Rowling’s new movie shows she doesn’t know North American history. The 1984 classroom. Trying to pluck how Democrats can collaborate with a largely uncollaborat-able President. Water battles.

Granted, Stone and Parker and the rest of the crew at South Park want you to actually watch the episode, and this clip is just a spur to take you it, but more shortly than later they’d have to pull the clip forward — like so –to their not horribly subtle political commentary in this […]

A somewhat more complicated map to digest than the 2008 “reddening and bluing of the map”, where that “red streak” in a sea of blue portented the future problems for Obama.  (Analyzed simply as the congruence of dying industry alongside the most concentrated “racial backlash” — and

A bit of stupidity emits here, your “neener neener neener” lobbed at Nate Silver and 538, under-cutting bursts of reality that intrude as Trump begins to “make due” on his campaign promises into the real world. I wonder if this is as accurate as your forecast models. ow many are there 538? Your stati

George W Bush:  Policy shouldn’t proceed from anger. There aren’t 2 to 3 million undocumented immigrants with criminal records to deport. Everyone who’s anybody lining up behind Bannon pick. John Bolton.  Isn’t that an example of extremism on a different part of the “right”? Wikileaks r

Contemplating political positioning in the wake of the Trump victory…  Because.  Sure.  Welcome to the new Republican Party, old Republicans.. I’m really curious about Marco Rubio.  His point in running for the Senate was to have a place to run for president in four years. Speculating that Tim Scott would ru

It does appear the incoming president lacks many deep convictions.  I suppose, if you follow through on that which got him elected… reworking trade deals and immigration restriction… Either watered down now or made more cost effective into the big “fence“.

Hm.  Trump is still tweeting.  Something to do with my experience of sitting on a public bus on a bridge as one grouplet overwhelms the streets. Just had a very open and successful presidential election. Now professional protesters, incited by the media, are protesting. Very unfair! The phrase “Professional proteste

I got the feeling last October, when I largely but not entirely defended them, that these kids in Montana had a satirical idea, humor in bad taste as opposed to bad humor, which — as a matter of course — dumped Trump in there as a signifier — speaking to his support amongst various hate […]

Clinton and Sanders Set For High-Stakes Democratic Debate. Oh, and also O’Malley.

Still, an […]

I’m watching the game — Seahawks versus Vikiings — with two others.  A man and a woman.  The man holds tightly to this sports watching ideology steeped at the axis of Vegas and Sabermetrics — hewing to statistics and probabilities.  He insists that the Seahawks oughta go for it on a fourth down at

As per my annual habit, I take a look at the late, last week or maybe second to last week play-off scenarios for the NFL, and take some merry amusement at whatever line of absurdism springs forth.
