Harris aide tests positive for Covid.

This news is terrible for everyone who gets a positive test result but this is pretty scary. Developing story. We just lost a nephew to the virus.  He was 43 and in good health and his widow and child also have it.  They are in Oklahoma. This madness has to stop and let us light…

CNN Poll: Biden Increases Lead to 16 Points

http://www.cnn.com/… A newly released Poll by CNN shows Joe Biden leading Trump 57% to 41% among likely voters nationally. The poll was taken October first through the fourth. The last head to head survey by CNN/SSRS was taken August 28 through September 1 and had Biden leading 51% to 43%. It is important to note that…

“This is what Trump is like in the Oval Office every day.”

Red-faced. Shouting. Interrupting. Ignoring. That describes Trump at last night’s debate. Turns out it also describes what he’s like in the Oval Office: Trump doesn’t accept the consensus that the debate was a disaster because, sources said, he was unabashedly himself. “The thing about the debate is people got to see why no one that…

“Stand Back and Stand By”

Former Vice-President Joseph R. Biden fought the instinct to punch President Donald J. Trump in the nose last evening. The scowling pruned face expression of disdain displayed by the president last night was just short of him sticking his fingers in his ears and poking out his tongue. Give ole’ Uncle Joe credit, he wanted…

Not even please in it. We know what this means.

Some of you on here are too young to recognize this symbol.  Donald Trump is not.  Stand by was more of this kind of sound, more than a dog whistle,  Many of us heard it in years gone by.  It meant program interrupted. People are asking what did he mean by saying “ Stand Back…

CNN commentator boils debate down to three simple (closely related) points

Oh, hey, guys! I just woke up. Say, is tonight the night Donald Trump finally became president? No? Okay, just joshing. I watched it. And nothing I can say about it will be as good as this, from CNN political contributor Van Jones: x .@VanJones68 summarized the debate perfectly. pic.twitter.com/9qaGVeGNqe— Jordon Brown Snarker of Tweets…

Death, Distraction, and Resistance

Over the weekend, Americans were bombarded by press accounts with what we already know, Donald Trump is a liar, a tax cheat, and a possible felon. In case you think that is hyperbole—Mr. Trump, ask Al Capone. My theory is that Donald Trump released his tax information so debate moderator Chris Wallace will not ask…

Some of us are praying for Kumbaya from tonight's debate

Twitter is full of many demands to cancel one or another Democrat when the real enemy will be culpable for mass contagion deaths on the road to fascism.  Good Morning Patriots..Preview of the Bernie/Biden debate tonight..Enjoy.pic.twitter.com/gA6gIdSsoB — Vincent Kennedy (@VincentCrypt46) March 15, 2020 Bernie's movement will live on, he has always made it about US and…

post-Warren, 15 March looms for Biden-Sanders debate

The Ides of March will feature the debate among “safe” candidates (and Tulsi?). Knives will be sharpened. The rest of us will grieve and persist. CNN and Univision will host a Democratic presidential debate in Phoenix on March 15, two days before the Arizona primary as well as votes in Florida, Illinois and Ohio. deadline.com/… x 'Give Us an…

Things You Can Count On In Tomorrow Night's Democratic Presidential Debate.

I think there will be certain things that are predictable for tomorrow night’s Democratic presidential debate.   You know you suck as a moderator when you get panned by both Democrats and Fox “News.”  And I am talking about Bothsiderist Chuck Todd.  Seriously, I don’t normally pay any attention to Fox, but this take down of Todd…

Democrats… be Democrats!

This will not be the first or last time you read or hear the next few lines today, “You know—I don’t understand why anybody does (sic) to all the trouble of running for President of the United States, just to talk about what we really can't do and shouldn’t fight for,” said Senator, Elizabeth Warren….

Kamala, Joe, and Kumbaya

A 45-second answer to complicated issues is never enough to make a rational choice, and that was the amount of time afforded each candidate during last night’s debate in Miami. California Senator Kamala Harris took the opportunity to do something with her time that the other candidates missed, she took control. She corralled the boys…

And the Winner is…

I am not going to make the declarative statement that you may be expecting.  The winner in last night’s debate was the American people. First debates are usually feeling out exercises with onlookers breathlessly waiting for the zinger of the night. Fortunately, the Democratic party did something unusual, they did not eat their own.  Oh…

Mayor Pete – a thought exercise

This will be brief. It is NOT an endorsement of any kind. It is merely a “what of” — imagining a possibility. It is provoked in part by watching Mayor Pete over the last few weeks. It is also provoked in part by now having read about ½ of his book,Shortest Way Home (which I…
