Elections

We’re All Fucked!

In the grand scheme of things, my little blog amounts to a couple of grains of sand in a vast desert. No matter how much importance I and the few brave souls who bother to read its words attach to it, the fact is it’s one of millions of other blogs out there. Thanks to

The Looming Constitutional Crisis

It is now all but certain that Donald Trump will attempt to fire Special Counsel Robert Mueller. The only questions that remain are how and when. Six months into this travesty of an administration and what we have is a West Wing in disarray, cabinet members who are in over their heads and a chief

Memo To Media: Don’t Let Up

Over the last few weeks, as it becomes clearer and clearer that the Russian hacking / collusion scandal is the most grave threat this country has faced quite possibly in its history, there has been a concerted effort by the alt-right media to not only dismiss the scandal as “phony,” but to engage in a

Why Democrats Lose Elections

Retired University of California at Berkeley professor George Lakoff has a theory about why Democrats lose elections and it comes down to messaging. Actually, it’s more than just a theory; turns out Lakoff was one of the few people who predicted Donald Trump would win the 2016 election. Note, he didn’t just say Trump could win, he

Orange Privileges, Immunities & Atrocities

Poised as we are just before a hallowed holiday weekend, and in further honor of the 40th Anniversary of Star Wars as well as our nation’s foremost motor-car race, reporting on the Trump-fueled daily disasters is just “coming in too fast.” The clown-car demolition derby leading up to his first ill-fated big-boy trip, the emblematic

Some on social media clearly think it was our ballot boxes that were hacked. It wasn’t our ballot boxes that were hacked; it was the minds of the electorate. Why were we so gullible? James Clapper

Now It’s Mueller’s Investigation

The announcement by Rod Rosenstein that he has appointed Robert Mueller as special counsel to take over the Russia investigation is encouraging, and for two reasons: First, it’s a ray of hope for millions of Americans who were rightly concerned that the wheels were coming off this democracy. Two, it’s a thorough rebuke to this

A Line Has Been Crossed

This nightmare will soon be over. A line has been crossed. Now, there is no plausible way to salvage the Trump presidency. Impeachment or resignation will not be enough. Either result would remove one person from power, but every member of the administration has been implicated in the cover-up – or worse. They are all

Dems Need To Bury The Past and Embrace The Future

Andrew Sullivan has a piece in New York magazine that in my opinion is a must read for every Democrat in the country. It’s titled, “Why Do Democrats Feel Sorry for Hillary Clinton?” and it’s the most brutally honest assessment I’ve seen not only about what happened in the 2016 election, but the current state
