Don’t Worry Bernie Fans, Tom Perez Winning Is Actually a Good Thing for You

“Oh great, Tom Perez won DNC Chair, same old, same old.” “Tom Perez is another corporate centrist!” “What do you call a party that does the same thing over and over again and expects a different results? The Democratic Party.” “Goodbye Democrats, I’m going third party! Demexit!” We heard all this and a lot more… Read More »

Twelve Painful Truths Democrats Must Accept to Rebuild the Party

I don’t want to sugarcoat it: the Democratic Party is in trouble. It is at its lowest level since the late 1920’s and possibly even worse than that when you consider Hawaii (one of only three states including Rhode Island and Delaware where Democrats control the state legislature trifecta and all congressional representation) wasn’t yet a state at that time.… Read More »

Episode 47–Brody and Michael Save The World

The biggest of the “big,” it practically makes Trump look travel-sized. We take on no less than every big issue we can think of and answer questions from our listeners. How can interracial couples solve racism? How is automation a bigger economic threat than immigration? [Plus how to fix it.] Which Democrat is going to save us… Read More »

Episode 44–Why Are We Democrats?

In the last episode before we finally know who the 45th President will be (hint, starts with an H and ends with an illary Clinton), we rally the troops by talking about why we’re Democrats. Burning questions include: seriously, how did two guys from Alabama wind up as Democrats? How will each swing state vote… Read More »

Do We Have “GOP Stockholm Syndrome?” Are We Immune to Their Crazy?

One of the many dangers of having an 18-month primary season (the earliest presidential candidates joined the fray in the first months of 2015) but barely a 4-month general election season is that there’s so much party in-fighting you might get used to Republican crazy or even take it for granted. Sure, Bernie is a… Read More »

Episode 10–What Type of Strategies and Fans Does Each Candidate Have? Exploring GOP Identity Politics

A very special tenth episode of “A Year Long Conversation” that is a little longer than usual but moves like a bullet-train. We dive deep into: How each candidate’s strategy is shaped by who they are (Ted Cruz’s shady minions, Rubio’s half-hearted endorsements, Trump’s unimaginative strategy of actually winning states). We explore the media’s dead-wrong assertion that… Read More »

Why Bernie Can’t Beat ANY of the Five GOP Potential Nominees

I know, I know, Bernie’s fans won’t believe a word I say about him or his electability chances, but I’m hoping against hope that I can convince at least some people before it’s too late. Realistically, there are five GOP candidates who could be the nominee (sorry Ben Carson). When you really start to crunch… Read More »

What if Hillary Actually Wins New Hampshire? The Upside of Fighting Back

Okay, so I don’t think Hillary will actually win New Hampshire, unfortunately. Still, if you look at the poll numbers over the last few days, it does seem like a staggering change of fortune. Roughly a week ago, Bernie had as much as a 30-point lead, and perhaps closer to 35-points. The fact that someone could write… Read More »
