It turns out that being really cool compared to ted Cruz is not the same as being cool.

I think a Beto/Kamala or Kamala/Beto ticket is a winner

I’m concerned Biden is just too old to be taken seriously. Maybe I’m wrong.

Dude is only useful as VP...if he calms down the straights enough for them to not freak out over a Democratic woman and/or PoC as president. He's a horsefeathering milk fart.

The mosque shooters manifesto praised Trump as a symbol of White identify. The synagog shooter in Quebec was consumed with Trump. Nicolas Cruz had an Instagram account in which he wore a MAGA hat. I am so furious. The Florida bomber had an entire van pasted with Trump stickers.

Playing off the Office joke above, maybe he thinks that all he needs to veto a bill is tweet it out in capital letters.

Daily life proves to me over & over again how deeply media portrayal and reporting matters. Almost a dozen people on group chat in my office, some very smart people included, have very little understanding of right wing extremism in the U.S.; it's stuff that happens "in other places." It's all about Muslim extremism, they say. I keep sharing stuff like this; I'm gratified that several influencers in my office culture are finally grasping it.

This is horsefeathering insane:



This is the same guy who called for a "final solution" to the immigration problem in Australia.

She's been phenomenal in committee. No grandstanding just pointed questions. She is extremely impressive. Check out her questioning of Wilbur Ross.

He has thrown his support behind Pete Buttigieg, which is.....not what I expected. Am I being dismissive of him because of his stupid name? Is this guy someone who can actually make waves in the primaries?


There's a poster here who loves him...I wanna say UK


I love me some Buttigieg. In a normal, sane world he is someone involved in the leadership of this country. I dont think he has a chance to win (nor does he, I think) but its awesome that he will be getting a seat at the table and get his voice out there. He's awesome, from everything Ive heard him talk about so far.

She good.

As hard as right wing media/pols are going after her, they know it as well.

Hmm, intellectual curiosity; he is a blatant anti-Trump.
