Re: Politics & Current Events

The VP pick is one of those things I worry is an automatic botch for Sanders if he gets the nod, regardless of the intentions. It's arguably lose-lose in SO many different permutations. Can it be worse than Kaine? Sure. He just doesn't have a lot of realistic options to choose from that actually he...

Re: 2019-20 Offseason Rumors/General Chit-Chat

The Cubs have minor-league deals lined up with southpaws Danny Hultzen and Rex Brothers as well as outfielder Noel Cuevas, per the latest minor-league deal log from Baseball America’s Chris Hilburn-Trenkle. Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic had previously reported the Cuevas signing, via Twitter. Hultz...

Re: Politics & Current Events

A President Sanders wouldn't have to caucus with anyone... But he presumably wants his policies to pass through Congress, which 100% won't happen if he sits in the oval office on an island. Is he going to enact MFA via executive order? I think we've found the Office of the President can do a lot of...

Re: Politics & Current Events

My Bernie Bro friend tried disputing Hillary's "no one likes Bernie" claim by showing that eleven (11!!!!) senators agree with his MFA plan. Well, I mean, if 11 out of 100 senators agree with it, what's to stop it from becoming the law of the land? Is that Bernie's fault, or the Senate's?...

Re: Politics & Current Events

Man the last few pages or this thread have really been something. Tldr, politics is still a really basic game of control via brute force and allegiance and some are confused why political bosses are apprehensive or dismissive about a mostly uncontrollable, vaguely party member.

Re: Politics & Current Events

Why would the party get behind a radical like sanders who has never contributed, has a dangerous menu of policies that would horsefeathers up the economy, just because he has galvanized a big group of chubby bearded white guys and 16 year olds with venomous twitter handles (none of which are reliab...

Re: Politics & Current Events

I dunno; Warren just to the right of Sanders is still pretty damn far to the left for a typical Democrat. I didn't and don't need someone to be lockstep with him, or further to the left, for the candidate to be someone that I want the Democrats to be producing/supporting more of. A bunch of try har...

Re: Politics & Current Events

Those supporters are the voting equivalent of Sanders himself in how the only opinions they have of the Democratic party is to rail against it as much as possible...but then bemoan how it doesn't include them, despite it being this monstrous thing they want to see dismantled. Which is it? And takin...

Re: Politics & Current Events

His whole persona is largely centered around [expletive] on the Democrats, so any argument that the party should rally around him right now, or not take shots back, again, doesn't make any sense. No, I'm not asking the Dems to rally around Bernie. Never was. I'm asking them to try and not actively ...

Re: Politics & Current Events

Sanders is not even close to being a sure bet to getting the nomination, much less beating Trump, and it's hugely debatable how many of his diehards would likely even vote for a "normal" Democratic nominee in the first place, so why would the Democrats/DNC be willing to roll over in any w...

Re: Politics & Current Events

"Bernie's not a Democrat, never has been, hasn't engaged in intra-party politics except for his Pres runs, but we don't understand why party elite won't support him during the primary season" is a take that should explain itself. I appreciate the hell out of Bernie, for the record. Not su...
