He's always had a bad habit of just getting a bit too defensive. Call it authentic, call it overly pugnacious, it's just part of Joe whether we like it or not. It is just a clear line of attack. I mean seriously, Trump took the short form of cognitive test (the real one takes days) and is bragging ...

https://www.politico.com/news/2020/08/05/joe-biden-reporter-cognitive-test-391771 Biden's getting in fights again. Honestly, that is a bad tack from Biden. Instead of getting angry and defensive about it he should instead use it to attack Trump. He's always had a bad habit of just getting a bit too...

2018 elections they seem to have elected a minority of Democrats, but a fair sized minority. 2016 Federal election they voted 48 Trump 45 Clinton. Maybe they used to be deep red but Sheriff Joe single-handedly turned them purple? :lol: Kelli Ward will probably blame the recent purple shift of Arizo...

It is. I could be less hyperbolic, perhaps, obviously not every Republican in the PHX metro hates Mexicans, but having spent 12+ years in the most ruby red parts of the PHX area (and still having my whole fam there), it's probably more true that most Republicans there over the age of, say, 40, is m...

Maricopa County is a strange place - take my word for it. Republicans here are all over the place politically, but they all share one thing in common, and that is their visceral hatred of Mexican-Americans. That is their unifier, and for decades, Sheriff Joe embodied that in his authoritarian, thug...

Good on Cori Bush though. She cam from behind to beat a political dynasty that had been in power for 51 years!! This after losing by 20% in 2018. She also is the OG Justice Dem.

Welp, that’s just insane. Hoping Beirut can recover, it’s a lovely city that has so much more potential than being known as an unstable city in an unstable country. Ammonium nitrate is a terrifying material we use to keep our world feed and to make bombs to blow it up. And safe ways to store the st...

I suppose so. I don’t doubt it, just, wow. I have family friends in Beirut and they are still, as you can expect, flabbergasted. To give an idea, the Manchester bombing in 1996 involved less than 2 tonnes of ANFO. It fucked up the whole of the city centre. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1996_Manches...

It's not exactly the best correlation to use, there will always be religious Trump supporters and religious Biden supporters.
