  1. They're obsessed with her. A guy I knew in HS has a twitter account that's constantly slamming her and attempting to interact with a right wing parody account of her. Now, this is a guy who was habitually unemployed after college, couldn't support his wife and kids and when she left him couldn't make his child support payments. But he considers himself a member of the Republican club.....I guess because he was in a frat at UNR or some other insane reason that let's him think he's part of the club.
  2. Never underestimate the ability and desire of the Democrats to lose the right way with 3rd Way, centrist policies that keep the corporate cash flowing than to return to being the party of FDR and the New Deal start winning again. As for Booker, he's a fauxgressive. But unlike Obama he has enough of a track record that he won't be able to pull off the big grift like O did in 2008. Plus, he's embraced a blatantly unconstitutional bill that would literally criminalize criticism of Israel that's a poison pill to progressives.

    What an embarrassment

    Can't take any chances. Wind can blow the rain under the umbrella. His advisers have probably told him that he can't wear a MAGA hat, which is what he usually does in the rain on the golf course, so he just skips the events entirely.

    What an embarrassment

    Let's be 100% clear about this. Trump is blowing these things off because of his child like vanity. His hair is so thinned out that, if it gets wet, what little of it that's left plasters to his skull and shows the world how f×cking bald he is. That is why he's refusing to attend these ceremonies.

    Do you even tan suit, Bro? If this were Obama, the right wing, manufactured outrage machine would be going ballistic over his disrespect to the TROOPS!

    Will Sisolak force Nevada to rebrand back to UNR?

    So, let me get this straight. Some people preferred the guy who--at the behest of the Koch Brothers and similar to what Walker attempted in Wisconsin--would have gutted the university's already meager funding over the other guy because the other guy might have you attach Reno to your name?

    Mass Shooting In Thousand Oaks

    The situation at Ohio State is a perfect example. Terrorist crashes a car into a group of people and gets out with a knife. Injures several, but no one is killed. The first, young, campus cop on the scene takes him out immediately. What happens if he jumps out of that car with an assault rifle and a couple of semi-auto handguns with extended clips? Nobody dies? One cop with a handgun takes him out? I don't think so.

    So what you're saying is that they're just like everyone else. Some are good; some are bad. Some are wife beaters, and some are the best family men you'll ever meet. And a few are capable of crossing over into pure evil. So perhaps we should stop fetishizing the military and putting them on a pedestal as some superior form of citizen and just realize they're people who choose to go into a certain line of work.
  9. Three Parties The old New Deal-Great Society Democratic Party which was destroyed by the Clintons but still is about 40% of the Democratic base and about a third of independents (The FDR-LBJ Party) A merging of what's left of the moderate wing of the Republicans (Kasich/Sandoval and about four or five other guys) with the Clinton centrists. It would be pro-corporate, pro-big business and free trade, globalist internationally but moderate to liberal on social issues. The suburban Rockefeller Republicans can go back to actually identifying as Republicans again.(The Rockefeller-Clinton Party) The John Birch/Evangelical Trump Republican Party (The Falwell-Trump Party)

    Game Thread: 2018 US Midterm Elections

    A small state Governor that nobody back East has heard of? No, he would need to be second on that ticket. And Kasich has earned the top spot if there's going to be a 2020 challenge to Trump.

    Game Thread: 2018 US Midterm Elections

    I'm not saying I'd vote for it, but a Kasich-Sandoval ticket would be the best thing for this country in 2020. Given the way the Republican Party has bent the knee to Trump, I, however, don't see any hope for that.

    Ohio's interesting. The Dems run a staunch New Deal/Bernie progressive for Senate, and they win. They run a bland corporatist, Clinton-Obama centrist for Governor, and they lose.

    Will Sisolak force Nevada to rebrand back to UNR?

    When I was growing up in Reno, everyone called it UNR. It's still my first impulse, but I usually check it so as not to offend the Nevada purists.
  14. No, you could never call the guy who hasn't read a book since childhood and whose advisers have to put his name in every paragraph of his briefing papers to keep him reading stupid. Now, I'll grant that he possesses a certain cleverness in discerning the zeitgeist of the moment and knack for latching onto what a broad swath of the public is looking for and riding that train to the end. That being said, I don't consider him to be intelligent in the least.
