  1. This is the second recent post I've seen where someone else (other than me) is worried about the balance of talent getting away from us. Our slippage from the top ranks of the world's greatest and freest democracies could result in talented foreigners in lesser developed areas choosing someplace else as their landing spot. That's long been a strength of almost all the world's great empires. Why would someone come to a place where vast numbers of the electorate are authoritarian in nature and distrustful of science when they could find a more hospitable welcome in western Europe or Canada?
  2. There are two generations entering the electoral pipeline who are much less divided on big issues that might require constitutional overhaul. Conservative Gen X better be prepared to lead the reforms or get run over by them.
  3. Contrary to centuries of self-delusion, we are not a nation of exceptional character and we are as prone to sliding into chaos and factionalism as any country that has come before us. I'll leave the predictions to others. I'm hoping we can work through this and build the world's greatest functioning democracy.
  4. Explaining their inability to get black votes on African-Americans being gullible is a neat runaround. It says "we're not the problem, it's just that black people are too stupid to see how awesome we are." From there it's only a short step to rationalizing "if they'd just vote for us, we'd stop it making it so hard for them to vote."
  5. There will be 18 million newly eligible young voters every four year cycle, many of whom thinks she's the shiz. I think she worries old guard Republicans more than a little.
  6. This Liva Pemy piece in Mother Jones offers a good recounting of how the Electoral College has mostly protected white supremacy from its beginning. The counting has always favored southern states where black voters were counted but whose voting rights were stringently suppressed.
  7. Desperate times call for desperate measures. But this is the last hurrah for the boomer (or older) Democratic leadership, imho. Neither major party candidate in '24 will be over 60.
  8. Another reason for Don to oppose mail-in voting is that it limits the effectiveness of the 50,000 volunteer "poll watchers" the Republicans have called for in November. You can't intimidate a voter who's not there in person.
  9. Wait till 50,000 "poll watchers" descend on the nation's urban areas on election day. Republicans are going to pull out all the stops in November in an effort to intimidate vulnerable voters.
  10. This is excellent work here. Is there Rosetta Stone software available for Trumpspeak?
  11. Don is completely bored with the whole thing and ready to just walk away from it like he has for every other massive failure in his career. He doesn't really know how to do stuff and he's not a very bright guy.
  12. I've seen reports that Biden is now receiving the daily intelligence briefs. If that's accurate, then he's actually reading them and that might open up an opportunity to embarrass Donald during a future debate (within security limitations). Because we know that POTUS doesn't read them, already knowing more than everyone else yadda yadda.
  13. I wonder if this helps her or hurts her in her re-election bid. She's in a tough race, specifically because she is so closely identified with Donald Trump.
