    Iíve often wondered if those happiness surveys are at least in part a measure of a cultureís willingness to complain. Some may feel more pressure than others not to express negative views. Say what...

    I see serial fabulist Joe B is on a "No Malarkey" tour of Iowa. To me, that displays either an unprecedented level of self-unawareness or the boldest Chutzpah since "I am not a crook".

    Would any other result than an electoral sweep for the Democrats be evidence of faulty institutions?

    Or are you perhaps expecting some sort of coup?

    I think she burned her bridges with Biden when she attacked him over busing during the debates. Also, the progressive wing of the party seems to have issues with her career as a prosecutor.
