    We had an amazing mayoral race outcome here in historically ultra conservative Colorado Springs so maybe at least some of us are worn out from all the wasted time and efforts spent fighting each other. The winner is an African immigrant business man who appealed to the majority of voters on his open-minded, inclusive messages and ran as an independent. He never once bad-mouthed his opponent yet he was continuously labeled in opposing ads as liberal and socialist...blah blah... by the loser.

    What's really scary is that there are actually still people that would vote for DJT. Seriously. Rob

    That is amazing and very hopeful.

    So now CNN is saying that there's tape of trump in the summer of 2021 1) acknowledging to someone, in front of witnesses, that one of the documents he stole (about some military action involving Iran) is classified so he can't share details, and 2) sharing the existence of that document with whoever he was sharing it with. This would seem to invalidate his excuse that he claims to have declassified everything before he left office, and also prove that he shared classified docs about highly sensitive national security issues with people who shouldn't have had access since even discussing the existence of the document would likely violate that law.

    If he hasn't sold them to his pal Putin and other international bad actors, I'd be very surprised.

    Well, his SIL DID get a $2 billion "investment" deal from Saudi Arabia. Not to mention his own LIV golf deal, the value of which we don't know. The thing I find remarkable is that the clowns on the republican side think all of this is happening behind the curtain and feel perfectly fine making absurd claims about biden's family. Thankfully I don't think Americans are as stupid as the republican party and their clueless supporters think they are.

    Actually it is very interesting to see Trump attack DeSantis. He is merciless. I cannot imagine it will help the Republicans mount unified front to bring the party together. The drama is so tiring

    So DeSantis polls something like 25% against Trump and RFK Jr polls something like 20% against Biden among potential primary voters. One situation seems to get a lot more attention than the other.

    The local NBC News affiliate here in Vermont interviewed George Will, who was speaking at the Ethan Allen Institute. When the interviewer asked what people want in a leader, Will said that he thinks they want someone "cheerful." People are sick of division, negativity, and politicking when all they are trying to do is pay bills, mow the lawn, and raise their kids. His comment reminded me of Anna Quindlen's hypothesis that when presidents exude joie de vivre, it's infectious and the whole country does better.

    Hmm.. so who is the most cheerful candidate so far? Hard to tell.
