Just once I’d like to hear…

Mitch McConnell telling Chuck Todd why the Democrats should allow a vote on Gorsuch: “Look, we litigated that last year,” the Majority Leader stuttered. “The American people decided that they wanted Donald Trump to make the nomination, not Hillary Clinton.” via Crooks & Liars Just once I’d like to see someone, preferably a Democrat pushing […]

That’s the way you do it

A few more remarks like this and I may start giving to the DNC again: On Friday, Democratic National Chairman Tom Perez told activists that anti-Trump protests “were hitting the Trump administration where it hurt,” and added that if Trump or his Republican minions had a problem with protesters considering his election illegitimate, well:“ I […]

Franken for President?

Assuming we have an election in 2020, which may be an unwarranted assumption, the Democrats could do worse than Al Franken as their nominee. This is great: via Crooks and Liars For those unfamiliar with the case they’re discussing: It involved a truck driver who sued his employer for firing him. His trailer broke down […]

No, he doesn’t get it

I must take issue with this: Democrats don’t seem to be united on how to deal with the nomination of Neil Gorsuch, which is “no way, no how.” Richard Blumenthal gets it: Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D-CT) said Sunday that he would filibuster Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch and “use every tool that we have” if […]

Democrat’s worries; no surprises here

This is the sort of thing that drives me crazy about the Democratic Party: At congressional town hall meetings, on the patchy grass of the National Mall, and in the flood of comments posted on Senator Elizabeth Warren’s Facebook page, it seems painfully obvious: Liberals are getting energized and exercised. They have found a rallying […]

Yet another modest proposal

The Democrats must be doing something right, as the Republicans are beginning to give them well meaning advice, about how all this resistance is just such a bad idea. You always know that Republicans are running scared when they start telling Democrats where they are going wrong. Anyway, along the resistance front, an idea occurred […]

Wusses

One of the very first blog posts that I ever put up on the internet complained about the fact that Democrats were wusses. I don’t think that post is findable, as it was put up on an short lived blog that resided on my Apple IDisk, a service long since shuttered. The problem lives on, […]

We really can’t complain

A friend sent me this link, to an opinion piece in the Boston Globe that makes the obvious point that we have been “hacking” election for years, so we really don’t have much right to be outraged by what the Russians may have done. Some of our politicians tell us we are a Christian country, […]

I just got an email

I have been getting lots of emails from the DNC, “begging” me for money, totally confused about why I have not responded to pleas from a galaxy of Democratic stars. My primary reason for not giving to the DNC is that it still has not removed the stench left by the recent exit of Debbie […]

Perhaps I can help

So today I got several emails from the DCCC pushing similar themes. Here’s the first few paragraphs of one: We’re confused… After Bernie Sanders’ inspiring call to unity, we thought at long last Democrats would…well…unify. But sadly that’s not what’s happened. Grassroots Democrats just haven’t stepped up. The entire world is watching to see if […]
