    Rick Pitino to visit UNLV

    I say do it. Pitino jolts the system and gets the Rebs into the mix for 4-5 years, and this in turn raises the profile of the conference and helps the other teams raise their game. Then when the axe comes down UNLV crashes for a bit while the others just received a nice boost.
  3. Then the score settling behind the scenes will be epic.
  4. Come on man, have some hope for yourself. The country is basically 50/50 all the time. The GOP has to win Florida and Ohio (and North Carolina), no easy feat in any year, and still steal one of Wisconsin, Michigan, and Pennsylvania, which barely happened last time. Yes, rural whites are turning against the Dems, and yes a gender gap in men for GOP is apparent in all subsections of society, but the same holds true for women and Dems. And the Republicans are bleeding suburban voters in the era of Trump. The RINOs are real and they are pissed off. You want someone that should scare the GOP, Trumpists, and the still conservative never progressive never Trumpers? Amy Klobuchar. She just won re-election and mopped up the rural Trump voters on her way. She also doesn’t have the persona to try and out-Trump Trump, or out Spartacus the hardliners. Instead of Harris’ woke fire, or the others trying to beat Trump at the demagogue game, Minnesota nice would be a welcome counter to Trump’s chaos magick. She might actually appear like there is an adult in the room. I’d posed the question elsewhere, but I’d heard it said if the parties picked candidates instead of letting the voters do it, she would be the weapon the guys in Smokey back rooms would love to trot out. So start with her. They’re all a turd sandwich, but take heart that they only have to beat the biggest douche in the world to win. As for me...

    All of the above. And go quaff some root beers at Bill Mauldin’s house, you’ve earned it and so much more. Edit: the twitter thread is a good one. Almost redeems the irredeemable site.
  6. Can he take a punch though? The guy had nothing but fawning media praise for a year which helped, along with not running to the center, to launch him to national prominence. That won’t be the case, especially if Clinton gets in. The brand is damaged, but the machine is still there and very rich. And if she doesn’t get in the behind the scenes score settling will be amazing.
  7. There’s many a slip ‘twixt the cup and the lip. Quinnipiac poll in the weeks following the 2014 midterms. https://www.google.com/amp/www.msnbc.com/msnbc/jeb-bush-surges-lead-gop-pack-new-2016-poll/amp
  8. I would say so too but you never know, these high level politicians are often “my country calls upon me to save it” types. I mean just look at the OP.
  9. Maybe, maybe not. Primary results build off one another. There’s a lot of scenarios where the hardliners keep chairshotting each other while a single moderate wipes out the other moderates nailing down a significant chunk of the voters. If it’s not Biden, I do think it needs to be a woman.

    World War 1. 100 years ago right now

    https://www.theguardian.com/film/2018/nov/11/they-shall-not-grow-old-peter-jackson-review-first-world-war-footage Should They Shall Not Grow Old be considered a documentary or a work of art? Debates about authenticity versus invention date back to the 1916 production of The Battle of the Somme, and Jackson’s creative interventions here will doubtless keep such arguments alive. Yet watching a technologically enhanced sequence in which a first world war soldier playfully juggles a beer bottle, then strums it like a guitar, all I could think was how real, how immediate, how profoundly truthful it all felt. As the titular (mis)quotation from Laurence Binyon’s poem For the Fallensuggests, Jackson has attempted to take ageing footage and make it young again – to bring history, and those who lived it, into the present. It is an endeavour in which he has succeeded superbly.

    Hey @Lester_in_reno, you think those colorized old photos are cool. Well I’ll see you cinema quality colorized footage.
  12. Everybody keeps running hard to the progressive left of Bernie. I’be been saying it for a while, that center left lane in Iowa is wide open.
  13. The most qualified candidate in history I’m told.
