Murkowski said she wouldn't confirm a justice until after the election according to the talkie box. Romney is being reported to lean that way too. I don’t think Collins is going to support such a move either, McSally probably won’t either same with Gardner due to their elections troubles McSally an...

Decorum for what? She was instrumental in denying me my rights as an American. If I voted to take away your rights would you mourn my passing?

Honestly Jair Bolsanaro is worse than Trump. Way worse. They're both about equal levels of rotten, craven evil, but Bolsonaro is far more competent it seems, which could make him worse. That said, I think Trump's legacy on the US will probably be worse than Bolsonaro's on Brazils, in large part bec...

I think I disagree, however, you might be proven right if one circumstance holds true; Many pollsters use the methodology of calling predominantly likely voters, voters who have voted before or are most likely to vote per their methodology. There are scores of apps and databases that can pinpoint w...

I have this weird and unsupported hypothesis that polling and aggregator methodology overcorrected in 2016 and are now underestimating Biden this go around. It is on this shaky ground that I predict a blue Texas will be the major upset talking point for several weeks after the election. I think I d...

You are aware that the highest numbers of those who don’t know what happened come from the south and not the more traditional union states right? At no point did I say that it didn't happen here as well. The paucity of understanding of the horrific atrocities of the Holocaust is an issue nationwide...

Reason for that impression? Saiwania is NSG’s resident neo-Nazi, do the math. I don't quite understand how people can hold onto those ludicrous impressions despite overwhelming, and really, quite sobering and depressing evidence to the contrary. It's one thing to have an edgy alt-right phase when y...

Y'all doing in-person or virtual events? The AZ Dems are doing exclusively virtual for all campaign events, big or small. Event was in person, but masks required & social distancing. Crowd was smaller than would be typical, as expected, but that's not really a big deal. Nothing will ever compar...
