    I see Bernie raised four million dollars in the days since the he-said/she-said contretemps.

    Given that the two major progressive wing candidates will be stuck in the impeachment rituals for some...

    There are many similarities between Biden and Trump, beside the shared demographic.

    Both have a troubled relationship with the truth.

    Both have endured criticism of their children.

    Both...

    I think if it comes up in the debate, it’s legitimate news.

    I think it was interesting how the moderator first gave Bernie the chance to deny it, but then proceeded to ask Warren a question that...

    Well, they can’t both be telling the truth. I think their respective followers will continue the kerfuffle past ten seconds. In 2016 the Bernie supporters seemed to nurse a bit of a grudge over the...

    For the “Party of the Ascendant”, they do seem a bit on the pale side. As one wag put it, you no longer need a color TV to watch the debates.

    Will the primaries generate a electable candidate, or...

    Wouldn’t the same polling and fundraising criteria apply to him as any of the others? It would not seem that some party cabal was working to shut him out so much as a relative lack of interest on...

    I see he will be doing a couple of fundraisers for Yang.

    I thought much the same thing. Warren has made revisions to past events before, and the issue coming up at such a tactically advantageous time seemed a bit smelly to me.

    All in all, it seemed to...

    Or even licit stuff. I understand a special prosecutor is currently combing through Jussie Smollet’s internet life as part of an investigation of the deal he got from the city persecutor.

    I read Bernie is pulling very slightly ahead in Iowa. But now there are claims being circulated that Sanders and Warren met in 2018 and he told her he didn’t think a woman could win.

    Exactly. I’ve come to think that social media makes narcissism more dangerous, and encourages us to manufacture perhaps not entirely honest images of ourselves for public consumption.

    I think politics and government really are downstream of culture. A decent society will generally produce good government, but a well structured government will be of little use to a corrupt society....

    We live in the age of the drone strike. I understand Obama authorized nearly six hundred. This guy was operating in the field against Americans. I wonder if the same level of outrage would exist if...

    Yes, but that was basically true before the kerfuffle commenced. The needle hasn’t much moved for quite a while. I think the people who want Trump out, in which number I include myself, would much...

    The same rules package as for Clinton. A full vote to open the trial and later votes to call witnesses. As with Clinton’s trial, it seems doubtful any evidence or testimony offered will much affect...
