It's a Good Time to be a Democrat

Well, we're on the right track now, aren't we?

The Democratic Party has two more days to seal the deal and show the American people what's at stake this November. Monday was rocky, and full of fits and starts, but Tuesday was the day we needed as Democrats to start feeling better about our chances. 

Here's the elephant in the room. The polls are going to be about name recognition, and most of the voters are still in summer mode. They're kind of paying attention (the TV ratings will tell us how much) and they're being given a chance to figure out which side they're on. Demographically, the Democratic Party maintains huge advantages in the race for the White House. Battleground states cannot be allowed to slip away. Money is going to have to be spent. People are going to have to get out there and we need to build a sophisticated Get-Out-the-Vote operation.

Don't underestimate the celebrity power appearing at the DNC. This is connecting newer and younger voters and people who don't read blogs or the news to what's happening. It's not by accident that they had Scott Baio and we had Meryl Streep, Demi Lovato, and Lena Dunham on stage. This stark contrast is going to help the Democratic Party make the case that they're evil, we're not. Any man comfortable using the C-word in public looks like a jackass compared to actual people who can do amazing things.

And it is a choice that concerns evil. Hating people cannot become the American way of doing things. Last night, the most intelligent politician in American history stood on that stage and made the case for Hillary. The Big Dog hit a home run and then some, looking frail but sounding like he knew exactly what people needed to hear. 

God Bless Bill Clinton. This was a man who could have served four terms in office, easily, and still would have had time to help millions around the world.

It's a good time to be a Democrat.

Democrats Are Trying to Save America

Never forget that Trump is a bum. A cheating, lying, stealing bum. He's the kind of bum that gives actual bums (who are usually down on their luck and doing the best they can) a bad name. He's a bum on purpose, you see, and that's the kind of bum that the American people want to see thrown out of office. He's never going to be presidential because he's just a goddamned bum, you see.

But, sometimes, I think the media is worse:
As Washington braces for this week’s expected vote to impeach President Donald Trump, partisan battle lines hardened on Sunday, with Democrats defending impeachment even if Trump isn’t removed from office and Republicans denouncing the integrity of the constitutional process.The Democratic-controlled House planned to vote Wednesday on two articles of impeachment against the Republican president, and the decision whether to make Trump the third U.S. president in history to be impeached was expected to play out along party lines. There is some d…

Spoiler Alert

Tulsi Gabbard is going to work very, very hard to re-elect Trump:
Tulsi Gabbard has been slowly edging toward leaving the Democratic Party and, it now seems more likely than not, launching a spoiler candidacy to peel disaffected left-wing votes away from the Democrats. Her “present” vote on impeachment, followed by a disavowal of what she called the “zero-sum mind-set the two political parties have trapped America in,” sets the stage for Gabbard to play the role of 2020’s Jill Stein.Left-wing anti-anti-Trumpism played an important role in the bizarre 2016 outcome.Die-hard Bernie activists, fired up with anger at the release of DNC emails stolen by Russians that purportedly showed the party had rigged the primary, demonstrated against the party outside its convention hall and tried to drown out the speakers inside with boos. Stein attacked Hillary Clinton from the left, then audaciously staged a grift-y fundraising scheme supposedly to hold recounts in the states she had labored to flip…

Trump Will Burn it All to the Ground

It is difficult to see how the latest war in the Middle East will end. I don't have any answers, and, really, no one else does, either.

Here's what people should pay attention to--this happened just as evidence of Trump's orders to the Department of Defense landed on the front page. This happened after the major holidays and just as we are beginning the 2020 primary season in earnest on the Democratic side (the GOP has decided to prevent another Pat Buchanan moment, circa 1992, from happening).

Every life that is lost is because of Trump's decisions.

Every penny that this increases the price of gas is a tax on the poor and allows people who regularly have access to Trump to maximize their profits.

Every American traveling overseas is less safe.

Everyone who cares about peace will be shouted down and marginalized because that is the media's job.

Every attempt to hold Trump accountable will probably fail because the GOP is complicit in all of his crimes.

Everyone ch…
