Re: Politics & Current Events

If Dems are smart (debatable) every candidate would run non-stop tv/radio/online ads with nothing but Mitch McConnell just admitting the tax cuts need to be paid for with cuts to social security & Medicare. https://static-ssl.businessinsider.com/image/552fe495ecad043e4ae8a4d8/hammond%20as%20gor...

Re: Politics & Current Events

Maybe not so spicy take: this is going so badly for Warren that she might have spectacularly torpedoed any shot she had of being a viable presidential or vice presidential candidate in the span of about 48 hours, which is equal parts impressive and depressing as hell. Yeah, the news cycle will move...

I saw Cruz +3 recently, but I think Beto might pull past him. Turnout might get really high there.

I also have a hunch that the deficit report today might hurt the Right into November.

Re: Politics & Current Events

Beto? I guess so? It obviously makes no sense to throw all your eggs/resources into one senate race, but man it would be really nice if he could pull this one off, if only so our most charismatic democrat won’t be coming off a loss to Ted horsefeathering Cruz the next time he runs for something.

I like her, but today reminds me why I think she’d be an awful candidate. She’s just not good at this.

Re: Politics & Current Events

Imagine bragging that torturing children is a good policy because it is deterring asylum seekers (or what the GOP are calling "asylum tourists"). How can anyone get behind that, seriously? I mean shouldn't Christians be disgusted by this? Shouldn't everyone? If there are any conservative ...

Re: Politics & Current Events

I have to get rid of Facebook. The knuckledraggers who never left home are hot-to-trot about Kavanaugh. I suspect it is because a lot of them did the same thing he did in high school. None of them went to college, so that is out of the question. A) that's an excellent decision. B) IMO, it's more so...

Re: The Cardinals

For the 800th time, 94 or 95 wins is not blowing the division. Especially when it’s due in large part to one player on a different team going Barry Bonds mode. We survived Carpenter going Bonds mode, and we may survive Yelich as well. Not to mention the injuries. Nobody is blowing anything. 800 tim...

Re: Politics & Current Events

Correct. There's always a couple of Senators willing to stand up for "the process" a little bit even though they'll still go party lines in the end. Serious question, why do you think that the Dept of Justice is going to gloss this over? Because they're republicans, and republicans do not...

Re: Politics & Current Events

I think they have every intention of letting some FBI agent write a report in a week that says "whelp, it's he said/she said" and then voting him through. A week more of bad press and pain for them is better than nothing, but this still ends with him on the court. So the motivation is the...

The dude was pretty adamant about not quitting the process. I guess he could claim he was black out drunk when he said it. He was also pretty adamant that he was innocent. right, which is all the cover the republicans need to vote him in. Maybe. My premise is based less on the GOP being smart and m...

If yesterday was that bad, why not cut bait now? It hasn’t even been 24 hours. I think they will allow Kavanaugh to bow out on his own “gracefully”, even though that all [expletive], so they can hang their hat on some witchhunt was too much for his family nonsense. The dude was pretty adamant about...

Why? It's not like they couldn't have pushed for an FBI investigation sooner.
