I worry with all these candidates in the running, that we're going to get even more people disinterested in voting if their guy/girl isn't the nominee like we got due to Hillary beating Bernie. Most of these people have some robust fan clubs!

Bernie is the only one with the cult fanbase that attacks everyone that joins the race

It would probably be bad if Obama didn’t have like a 90% approval from Democrats so the “he’s like Obama” while funny also probably not actually detrimental
That's the other part. I think the joke will do much more good than harm. I didn't know much about Beto, but after reading the Vanity Fair article, he isn't what I had heard from others. Will be interesting to see how his campaign develops.

Beto playing guitar and singing at campaign events with rock stars is something the media won't be able to pass up. He's going to look cool af and be the guy you can have a beer with. That's all that matters to alot of the voters in the USA. He's going to help Dems retake the Senate and regain a foothold for Dems in the Midwest.

I'm ready for more of Onion's Diamond Joe Biden...

- Biden Kicked Out Of Laundromat After Shag Rug Floods Washing Machine

- Biden Hands Out Loose GT Cola Can To Unexpected Trick-Or-Treater

- DNC Chair Tracks Down Biden In Everglades Tossing Whole Chickens To Gators

- Tearful Biden Carefully Takes Down Blacklight Poster Of Topless Barbarian Chick From Office Wall

- Biden Donates Collection Of Classic Skin Mags To Those In Need During Holidays

- Biden To Honor Fallen Soldiers By Jumping Motorcycle Over Vietnam Memorial
'There's no better way to pay homage to our fallen brothers than by letting it rip, hitting that ramp at full fucking blast, and flying through the sky high above the Vietnam Memorial,' said Biden, noting that he also plans to execute a midair salute by placing his fingers around his mouth in a V shape and rapidly flicking his tongue. 'If I grease the landing and ragdoll across the Constitution Gardens, so be it. I've had my share of spills.'"

AOC just destroyed Wilbur Ross FWIW.
Good. Drag his ass.

Hard to get over the fuckery of that Ben Sasse statement. "I believe the president is overstepping his constitutional authority, but I'm going to let it slide because I don't want him to look bad in front of the Dems, and I want Dems to pass legislation to make sure that the precedent I'm setting doesn't stick."
I am glad there's no winning hand for them and having 12 of them fall on their sword with honor but 41 die cowards deaths both have upsides.

“Hey besides the virulent homophobia why are you guys so down on Tulsi” - a literal thread in OT.
So goddamn transparent with the ulterior motives. They're stans and can't even contain it.

Cummings requesting docs from the Fox News reporter that uncovered the Stormy Daniels stuff (via MSNBC)
"Did you think Ted was blowing smoke out of his ass or something?!?"

This is true. He lacks the country accent of Bill, but otherwise he's a pretty good mix of them.

Also Cummings requesting docs.from the Fox reporter seems kind of pointless? What will it accomplish? Still waiting on those subpoenas.
The reporter *wants* to tell the story but is tied up by NDA.

Governmental investigations (no subpoena required) are exempt from NDA so now the reporter will be able to talk.

Trump is hyped about a veto for obvious reasons, but I'm simultaneously amused/depressed that he has absolutely no understanding that this as about as close to a vote of no confidence that you can get in the US system. It's immediately notable, from a historical perspective.

I'm actually impressed at the number of R defectors. Obviously it's not enough to matter in the end, but it shows at least some of them are thinking ahead about what this means in a future D administration.

Ronna Romney McDaniel joins John Hogan Gidley in calling the newest candidate Robert O'Francis O'Rourke.

7:20 PM - Mar 14, 2019


Ronna McDaniel @GOPChairwoman

What has Beto done?

His only legislative accomplishment was to rename a courthouse and he lost a Senate race.

At least Robert Francis O’Rourke announced at an opportune time – right before St. Patrick’s Day.

7:18 PM - Mar 14, 2019
And what was trumps legetsative accomplishments before 2016?

Beto was able to get the networks do a splitscreen coverage when Trump was in El Paso. That's how you beat Trump at his own game.

We already know Trump paid off a porn star and Playboy model though. We know Fox protected him by not.pitting the story out. There's really not anything to gain from her talking to them
The Fox catch and kill didn't actually happen as far as congressional oversight goes because there's literally nothing on the record.

And you don't go out throwing subpoenas without giving people an opportunity to cooperate willingly.

Calm the fuck down. Stop being impatient.

I too like reading progressive political savants talk about the true meaning of liberalism and make threads asking why isnt Tulsi more beloved by the left. We got some real winners in the Beto thread.

So they’re going with the Obama “he’s not experienced enough” playbook while Trump sits in the Oval Office?

Private windows/clearing cookies for NYT still let's see their articles in safari.
So if I understand this correctly, a Washington firm used cyber forensics to determine that the Fancy Bear and Cozy Bear government hackers operated through Gubarev' XBT/Webzilla servers?

This is not really news to cybersecurity nerds (Fancy Bear and Cozy Bear were known and monitored persistent threats before the Presidential election) but I guess it's good to have another bit of raw Steel intelligence confirmed, in this case through open source information.

I got to give it to him Beto is the master of saying absolutely nothing while sounding nice. I feel like it will work great in the general but at some point someone is going to go hard at him in the primaries and he will have to get down in the dirt and also be more straightforward

I was shocked to find out, watching his Iowa town hall, that Beto's quote about rural broadband and Tinder was part of a response to a question about UBI...
