Re: Do you think Harper will sign with the Cubs this offseason?

Yes. I cannot believe that Theo would go all in Yu, Chatwood and Hamels if it meant he'd miss out on Harper.

This is factually incorrect. All of the protagonists are either black or POC.

It's interesting that as I pass by the TSA and Global Entry offices on my way to my desk this morning, the Trump portraits that are always hanging on their walls have been taken down.

Re: Elizabeth Warren videos. My fear with her is that she is just really, really bad at politics much like Hillary was. A male example is Al Gore. Sometimes smart people come across really poorly on TV.

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...

Oh, and as for Beto, it's different because he has a House record and he almost won in Texas. horsefeathering Texas.

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. What bothers me is that it is stupid, mainly. It also is elevating her to a level that is going to be very difficult to achieve. She...

They aren’t scared of her potential accomplishments. They are scared because her celebrity can fuel youth engagement, which is always disastrous for them. Of course, her celebrity is almost entirely manufactured from the right to begin with. She was blink-and-you'll-miss-it story about an upset wit...

Putting on my English major hat, the first part is completely unnecessary and confusing, since we all know she's already made it into the House. You’re correct.

No doubt, but the swiftboat attacks, "Crooked Hillary" and Howard Dean's scream heard round the world show that voters are stupid and stupid things stick to candidates. This will get retweeted a gazillion times.

That record isn’t going to play again. People are already immune to Trump’s bull. Nobody cares about her saliva test. If you listen to her positions and her ability to articulate her positions, she’s almost a perfect candidate. She’s a populist with a compelling background and bonafide experience. ...
