The Also-Rans…For this group, it doesn’t really matter who I think they’ll pick because they have no chance of being the nominee. That being said, I still put some time into thinking about it. Tulsi Gabbard…Who She Would Pick: Probably Bernie Sanders or someone even older and far more irrelevant like Mike Gravel. Who She… Read More »
5:00 p.m. …Here we are America, another fucking debate. I know you are all staying home Friday night just to watch a New Hampshire debate in February. 5:05 p.m. …First question to Joe Biden about why he’s more electable than Bernie Sanders or Pete Buttigieg. I do believe he is, but Biden has to downplay… Read More »
“Iowa, you have shocked the nation.”–Pete Buttigieg Truer words were never spoken, although not for the reasons Buttigieg may have meant. Iowa once again unleashed an 18-layer clusterfuck cake in the results for their caucasian-caucus (CNN correspondents showed various caucus sites around the state, and I almost got snow-blindness from all the bland, pasty crowds).… Read More »
AL attempts to offer up the Big Question: how can Sanders’s fans say it’s rigged against Bernie when he’s getting unprecedented treatment while not being a Democrat? …And has there ever before been a case where someone refused to pay dues to an organization while demanding to lead it?
AL looks at Gabbard–a socially regressive, unpopular, relatively obscure congresswoman–and her suspiciously strong online support.
This may not be the most relevant thing to talk about two weeks before the Iowa primary, but I just get so infuriated when people say “Well, Hillary raised more money than Trump—so money can’t buy victory.” I absolutely HATE when Republicans keep bringing up that Clinton raised more money than Trump, and I have… Read More »
Dear Santa, I hope you and Mrs. Claus are doing well. [What is her name by the way? She should have a name. I want to recommend “Ashanti Claus.”] Hopefully, all is well with the North Pole–which I hear is suffering heavily from climate crisis–and bless the Elf Labor Union as well. It may seem… Read More »
[Note about spoilers: There are only the vaguest possible spoilers for the series finale–and all season four spoilers are only in the first two paragraphs. This article isn’t about that.] “Mr. Robot” is hands-down the most audacious Drama on television (sorry Damon Lindelof, I know you try). Any given episode can feature head trips, fake… Read More »
4:58 p.m….Are you ready for some debaaaaate! CNN literally says “Debate Pre-Show…Moments Away: Democrats Face Off in High-Stakes Debate.” Ohhhhh…dramatic. 4:59 p.m. We’re seeing live footage of the candidates scribbling notes at the podium. Riveting stuff 5:01 p.m. An introduction of the moderators, who I have never heard of… 5:01 p.m. Introducing the candidates–who are… Read More »
This seems like a strange question to ask on the day after Trump became only the third U.S. President to be impeached, and most people are so terrified of this possibility they might secretly curse me just for speaking it into existence. Please understand that I’m not saying he’ll be reelected and I damn sure… Read More »
