It’s Bernie or… Trump??(updated)

The lovely and talented Susan Sarandon was on Chris Hayes the other night, talking about the election and campaigning for Sanders. Sarandon has the internets in an uproar because she has stated that she will not vote for Hillary should Hillary win the DNC nomination. “I just can’t bring myself to … vote for that” (the […]

We interrupt the end of civilization(updated)

Just wanted to note that Bernie Sanders, who availed himself of a chance to perform with animals (a wayward finch, it seems) in a way that worked  out much better than Trump’s bad day with an eagle, has won Washington State and Alaska primaries by huge margins, with Hawaii yet to vote. Alaska gave 80.7% of its vote […]

The GOP takes back the White House

Prepare to say Hello to President Willard Romney (?!) This is a scenario under which we have a three-candidate race for the White House come November. Some caveats: First, this is NOT my original thought going here. It was posted on Huffington Post a few hours ago, and if I find the link, I’ll repost it. […]

VOTE FOR TRUMP NOW!!!

If you’ve been reading this blog, you know I’ve posted multiple pro-Bernie Sanders items over the past few months. I’m not a fan of Hillary and I’m not a fan of The Donald (or any of his GOP rivals). I need to explain that I’m posting pro-Bernie information out of a sense of fair play. The piece […]

Donald Trump has already won

So people are FINALLY taking Donald Trump seriously now that he’s won several decisive primary battles. There are still opportunities to derail his bid for the White House. The ‘country club’ branch of the GOP is panicked (and rightly so). Trump represents a challenge to the Republican status quo that’s pretty hard to quantify. But […]

My article makes Huffpo

Thanks to my FB pal Angie Cordeiro (whose work I championed here a few weeks ago), the better part of my post ‘We Interrupt this Election…‘ has made the Huffington Post. Thanks to Angie for her work to make me seem smarter. It’s an unforgiving task.  Now, if you want to help support this effort […]

We interrupt this election…

I’m stepping away from the election coverage I’ve been doing over the past month. While such blogs have driven traffic here, I have some opinions about the futility of the election that would probably drive traffic away. Simply put, I don’t expect any presidential candidate to change the issues coming up with climate collapse. And […]

Speaking Ill of the Dead

SCOTUS judge Antonin Scalia passed away last week while on a vacation trip in Texas. His holiday was a freebie from a certain John Pointexter, who (not coincidentally) had business before the Supreme Court. It appears to be a canned quail hunting experience that brought Scalia to the resort. If memory serves, that’s the sort […]

The clock is ticking, Hillary

A couple weeks ago, I laid out the case for demanding that Hillary release the transcripts of her speeches to the banks. After all, she is running for the job of being the NOMINEE of the Democratic party in the 2016 election–that means she is seeking Democratic voters’ seal of approval for taking on the […]

Just to be clear(see ya later)

I’ve taken a step back here–I’m going to be going away for a few days, and I probably won’t be posting again til the 20th. I’ve also got to admit I’ve been drawn into the election (and neglecting other stories of note), especially the Democratic primary. I’m a political junkie of no small level, and […]
