Democrats Will NEVER Take Back America Until They Reclaim the South

As I pointed out in last year’s very well-aged article “The Southeast is Actually the MOST Important Area for Democrats”—which you should read if you haven’t already—there is no future for the Democratic Party that doesn’t include major gains in the Southeast. What is currently being thought of as “hopelessly lost Trump country” is the only way Democrats are… Read More »

Why Bernie Sanders is to Blame for President Trump

In the week since Trump pulled off the most shocking Presidential victory since Harry Truman beat Dewey, the finger has been pointing in dozens of different directions at the same time with the deafening question “Who’s to blame?” And the answers are so varied, I’m beginning to wonder if secretly I’m to blame for it. Hillary’s campaign… Read More »

Live-Blogging the First Presidential Debate

The pre-debate montage on NBC might as well say “brought to you by WWF” and a “let’s get ready to ruuuuumble!” 6:00–Savannah Guthrie tries to be even blander than usual, while Chuck Todd talks about competing visions of America in a way that makes Trump’s sound worse. I can’t wait to see Trump’s mean tweet… Read More »

5 Reasons Elizabeth Warren Will NOT Be Hillary’s VP…

The shortlist is out. Apparently, Hillary has narrowed her search down to Julian Castro, Tim Kaine, and Elizabeth Warren. Although I’m little disappointed that Al Franken is out of the running, either Kaine or Castro would be a solid pick. [Though I wonder why she went with Virginia senator Tim Kaine over the other Virginia… Read More »

Actually, Hillary Doesn’t Need Bernie’s Fans, but He Sure Needs Hers

We’ve heard the same tired lines about the Democratic primary for months: “Well, no matter who wins the primary” as if there’s any doubt Hillary will “they’ll need each other’s fans.” And now that we’ve seen Bernie’s chances of winning winnow down to zero, the more specific “Hillary will need to appeal to his fans… Read More »

Clinton and Trump are the Nominees, Get Over It

In an article written a few days ago, I said March 15th would definitively tell us who would win the primaries. People scoffed, and I’m not one to say “I told you so” but Alabama Liberal’s election predictions are usually better than the ones people are paying big money to get on other media outlets,… Read More »

Jeb Bush Really Was Like His Dad: A Man Out of Sync with His Era

South Carolina brought another casualty in the 2016 Presidential race: Jeb Bush. It’s also possibly the last one we’ll see for a while, since Rubio and Kasich both believe they should be the anti-Trump nominee, Ted Cruz’s dirty tricks will grow worse, and Ben Carson is adamant that he’s staying in the race…for some reason.… Read More »

Is Thinking Black Leaders are Sell-Outs the Ultimate White Privilege?

In episode 9 of “A Year Long Conversation” we dissect the divisions in the progressive movement between age, gender, and particularly race. Because there’s a weird phenomenon out there: young, white progressives who have had relatively good lives seem to think that even black leaders are now part of “The Machine.” They seem to view themselves as more… Read More »

Hillary’s Campaign Isn’t In Trouble

This instance that her campaign is in trouble is a perception that the media is more desperate to create than a reality. Hillary fully expected to lose New Hampshire to Bernie. She as much as said so in last Wednesday’s Town Hall meeting and last Thursday’s debate. She spoke freely about the polling data and the Senator… Read More »
