The exit polls in Israel show a tight race, but the left may have done better than expected. Could get some kind of unity coalition? Or the exit polls are wrong and then who knows.

From what I'm seeing on twitter the best thing to do with the exit polls is to ignore them because they're tabulated a few hours before voting finishes, and everyone is gonna posture and claim victory because of how the procedure for first dibs on forming a government works.

Nancy Pelosi just told me of Barr’s plans: “We all understand that redacting is important to protect sources and methods - beyond that he has no business redacting. And we will have that discussion.”

“The only reason to redact is for security - and that’s not a subjective thing”

This is absolute insanity

"very fine people on both sides" is a hoax? Guess my eyes and ears dont work anymore because I'm pretty sure I watched that speech on fucking live tv
...which can still be watched after a search that literally took me one second.

I seriously consider leaving the country on a weekly basis at this point. Half the country isn't even willing to acknowledge objective reality anymore.

Everything from Heather Heyer being driven over by a neo nazi to Sandy Hook to Parkland to Las Vegas to the Holocaust is a hoax. The only thing that's real is the 2016 electoral college victory and republicans winning 100% of the popular vote. Everything else is a hoax.

Its pointless to assume republicans have logic or common sense or reality at their disposal.

Fiscal hawkishness makes me seethe with red hot anger

But I was reading the comments on this tweet and excuse me for being not being economic awoke or anything, but how is running government debt good and did the US government ever really have surplus in the 90s?
Low steady rates of inflation are good for the economy. The government running a mild deficit seems to generally be a good thing for the economy precisely because of this.

We did have surpluses in the 90s because of the economic boom, but the slowdown x Bush Tax Cuts x Iraq decimated that and the Clinton admin underreaching with things like the EITC excluding single people without kids is a result of that problem.
Why is Bernie so defensive about being a seven figure lightweight? Pleb probably can't even buy a Bugatti or go a full summer with a cocaine habit.
That response makes me think he's hit at least 8.

If he’s been stalling for so long just to avoid revealing he’s as rich as everyone already assumes, well, that’s a relief on one hand but somehow extra annoying on the other.

I'm noticing a pattern here. The only time Candace Owens trends is when she's getting publicly nuked from orbit.

Boy if the way Black ERA/Black Twitter talk about her is any indication, then jesus she really is in a sunken place (if I can use that term) also the word they use for people like her makes me hesitant to use the word when it's being used to described a raccoon or a big domesticated cat. I would rather not have some one hear me use that term, if it's even being used in like animal stuff. It was a term that used waaay back in the slavery days and it's not the nword. It's the other word

To paraphrase Jamelle Bouie, there is an enormous lucrative grift for non-male/straight/white people to pander to the GOP telling them what they want to hear, even if they don't believe any of it. There is an enormous market for fake news, just look at Rassmussen.

It's not the only reason. He refused to release taxes before his book deal even happened. I'm guessing there was something there that fell off finally at the 10 year mark.

Economic anxiety will always be the phrase that sets me off, even if it's being used ironically. Don't use that term as cudgeon to bludgeon all working class or poor people. There are those of us in that class that know better, it's just like, with every other class of people, they're hiding their ignorance behind how they got their view points.

I really hate Barr. More than before. His attitude regarding the ACA was kinda mafia like. “What are you afraid of if we are so crazy.... heh heh heh.”
