Bernie still hasn’t officially announced either

Tbh I have no idea what’ll happen if he doesn’t actually go through with it. I think it shakes things up a bit more than Biden not running

Beto's running for the VP spot at this point if he does jump in.

The question is whether having Beto in the race helps Bernie by splitting the "normal" Democratic vote or hurts him by stealing away young voters. Nobody actually seems very excited about having a moderate though.

— Maddow has always clearly been kind and friendly to Klobuchar. She’s the only reason any of us actually know who she is to begin with. No excuse for Rach not to go hard, though.

— I think her instinct to wait out the controversy around her staff abuse is the correct one, if not the one we want. It just doesn’t move the needle against her like it would for others because her image has been so pristine and friendly.

— all that said, right now her main play is VP to soften up a Biden or Bernie or Sherrod run. If Warren, Gillibrand, or Harris advances, she’s out.

Yeah, his complaint is the same as mine - all these people getting (deservingly) called out for their shit, meanwhile the guy in the fucking White Hose is rarely to never taken to task for his shit, at least not on the same level of all these people who don't have a fraction of his power.

Are...are we not supposed to hold people to standards because one shit bag refuses to adhere to them?
We’re supposed to hold everybody to standards or nobody. The current behavior is that “responsible” politicians get hounded for days if they misspeak but Republicans can be overt Nazis and it’s not news because that’s just how they are.

I want to be mad about the stupid compromise deal that seems to get nothing for the Democrats, but

Hannity is shitting on the deal, as are other Republicans

Once President Coulter comes out against it this deal is as good as dead anyway

Right, which is my point. Republicans have no standards, and can get away with anything because they've successfully demonized democrats so throughly that their base would rather vote for a child rapist than a democrat, because the democrat is the greater evil. Just because people let trump get away with everything doesn't mean we get to get away with everything. Trump bragged about being able to kill someone on 5th avenue and still win, and he still won. Hillary called racists deplorable, and they never let that one go.

What...is your point?

The media has fundamentally abdicated their role in our democracy by choosing to ignore and normalize great evil. Thats the point.

I guess my point is that I understand what's going on, and most people just want to whine about how they can't get away with things other people do. Oh well.

Gary O'Donoghue @BBCBlindGazza

This is the shameful moment when my cameraman Ron Skeans was attacked by @realdDonaldTrump supporter in El Paso - after the President repeatedly goaded the crowd over supposed media bias. Happily Ron is fine #TrumpElPaso

Trump's racist or stupid comments are noted.

His base doesn't care though, so there's nothing to sustain a story.

Instead the story ends up being the bajillionth piece on how Trump voters are unwavering.

If your theory of what’s going on is that you’re superior to most people maybe you don’t know what’s going on

Besides the 88 for Heil Hitler, the 18 is also used by neonazis and skinheads: AH = Adolf Hitler.
That seems a lot more plausible than the border wall conspiracy. Hmmmm. That's pretty disgusting....and on further thought, actually lends credibility to the border wall conspiracy (tldr: 1.375 billion for the wall = 14 55 miles=88 kilometers.) Hummmmm.

It's honestly impressive how the media has reduced Klobuchar's violent, physically and emotionally abusive behavior towards her staff to vague "mistreatment" while also completely sweeping her breaking of the law under the rug.

Staffers would have to come out publicly for any of this stuff to really stick, but I completely understand why they wouldn't want to. Klobuchar would probably retaliate.

YES!!!!

OK, that's damned good.

The logo, the use of "launching my campaign", bringing up the idea that between a Congressperson and an astronaut she somehow had the dangerous job, the call for science and reason in Congress. It all uses his background and skillset while still seeming deeply human.

That's a proper rollout.
