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.

Please understand that I’m not saying he’ll be reelected and I damn sure… Read More »
Okay, so Tulsi Gabbard isn’t even remotely in the top 5, and if you want serious predictions, please check out the other articles in this series… –Dosvedanya comrades. “I can see Russia from my White House…because this is Putin’s summer home.” Vladimir Putin would very quickly reabsorb Ukraine, and Gabbard wouldn’t lift a finger to… Read More »
This is probably the biggest mystery of all the candidates. While Warren and Bernie have been crystal clear about most of their progressive plans, and center-leftist Biden has given every indication of what he’ll do (hint: not much), Buttigieg is taking a slightly more mysterious, Clinton-esque route.
