Thanks, I was having kind of a good day.

If the midterms were any indication, Dems have already been very focused on statehouse races, maybe for the first time in decades.

It’s a reflection of her entire campaign. She wasn’t nearly aggressive enough in the Midwest, she was middle of the road on policy and she chose Mr Bland as a Veep.

Re: The 2018-2019 Cubs Offseason Rumors & Discussion Thread AKA The Rickettssss take a dump on EVERYTHING

It's maddening how many Cubs fans (on other sites) still think that a) leadoff hitter is a "thing", b) that it's a major need, and c) that not having one is the reason the Cubs didn't go far last year. 2018 leadoff hitting statistics are basically identical to 2016 numbers. Of all the thi...

Man, it still annoys me Clinton went with walking zilch Tim Kaine as her VP pick over Castro. Castro made so much more damn sense for the nod. It’s a reflection of her entire campaign.

Honestly curious, why? He’s not my first choice right now, but he does check quite a few boxes.

Re: NFL Playoffs

METAIRIE, La. -- New Orleans Saints coach Sean Payton had quite the display waiting for his players this week when they started preparing for Sunday's NFC divisional playoff opener against the Philadelphia Eagles.

Re: Politics & Current Events

Absolutely not. Definitely not, although conceding defeat when they are ahead is very much a typical Democratic response. And there is no way the Republicans wouldn't twist logic to still influence idiots. "See! A Latino snatched a purse in San Antonio. If the Dems cared about border security ...

Re: Politics & Current Events

I just can't understand what you think is stupid about growing excitement and popularity of young liberal politicians. And I don't see how that thought reconciles with enthusiasm for Beto coming off an election loss in a year when Democrats swept into office. 5 years of nothing but talk about 70+ y...

Why does this bother you? She's inspired people on the left to be excited about stuff. That is generally a good thing. Curious what you think about all the Beto hype.

The “they are so scared” thing needs to die. They’re not, their just propping her up as a symbol of the idealistic radical left. The fact that she’s pretty and brown makes her an easy sell to base. If she gets into the House and actually effects change or gets some legislation passed, then they sho...
