2004 or that abouts

Monday, January 20th, 2020

The Democratic race supposedly devolves into that of 2004 — except the discomfitting likely nominee — roughly the same age but sixteen years on —

… I already noted Warren possessing the same problems as Dukakis of 88 … Sitting on the beach indulging in thick policy reading … Fun in the sun…

… Sanders is Corbyn, reincarnate, and we all know what happened to him.  Actually when you hear that klobuchar gloating on behalf of women on who lost all The elections on stage … Was that a tag team assault team up with Warren on Bernie?  (The only guy on stage to participate in elections for fraction of percentage vote tallies?)

Actually, maybe Bernie is Dean again… who on The eve of the primaries had footage released of him badmouthing The party in the past.  Come from two different directions, of course, and neither hold a candle to Trump…

The great thing for the new Kerry for that old Biden is he doesn’t have an Edwards to not bring anything to the ticket.  Unless Buttigieg is… Though he didn’t represent the attempt of a breach into the south.  No, I gather we’ll get the retry for Gephardt … Midwest didn’t get anywhere here… Klobuchar.

Reading the comments section on such politician analysis… I can vote Warren but not Biden… Biden not Warren… Only Gabbard or Sanders for some foreign policy purposes… I’m sure someone would follow the logic for only Kucinch over Bush, or maybe Dean but certainly not the hawk Kerry, in which case we can turn to Bush for that cultural purpose.

Is Trump now Bush?  Damned if he can’t find some cultural battle to jam on Midwest swing state ballots… Unless, suddenly, he actually is it.

Surprising New Hampshire primary result sends shockwaves through political fringe parts

Thursday, January 16th, 2020

Shocking election result in the New Hampshire primary.  Vermin Supreme has won the Libertarian delegating race.  Who is Vermin Supreme?  Quite a bit like fellow libertarian candidate Lincoln Chafee… ran on multiple party platforms, most noted for the most outre stances on things, and latest race seems to be just wanting to hear themselves talk.

No, for their purposes I wouldn’t know where the party should go.  After three former Republicans for a presidential race, it is probably to go elsewhere — the Green Party went to a former Democrat in 2008 then to Jill Stein so on that basis they come out as less desperate.  And Chafee is no Gary Johnson.  May be that is why he came last — only garnering a smidgen of media attention for his run because he was a statewide elected official for Senate and governor.  Unlike performance artist Vermin Supreme who captures a party ethos in that he is commenting on the system.

So, Vermin Supreme has his moment ripping apart the party’s recent history, perhaps the result of party voting procedures oh so republic not democracy … Or maybe attempted anti oligarch (no super delegates here.)

Eh… I think they have some resident of one of those sovereign ocean rig nations they can float to and spare themselves from guys with silly hate and metric system enthusiasts.  (Cheap shot, maybe … Chafee considers that aside his greatest mistake in his 2016 bid … Nevermind it is what set him above the likes of Jim Webb.)

Wait for the meghan markle endorsement

… Donald Glover, Nicholas cage, rivers cuomo, Noah centineo, elon musk, Jack dorsey, and now… Dave chapelle…

How can he lose?

What?  No womem?  And… Rivers cuomo has been slammed for lyrics that… WEll, the reason is dumb but nonetheless in sjw politics lovelorn dad men’s obsession don’t work…

Buttigieg nabbed Mandy moore.  And doesn’t have a faintly positive write-up on the national review.  I guess that’s why he’s still on stage?

No longer in it to win it

Monday, January 13th, 2020

Marianne Williamson is out.  You need Oprah to see if Oprah can win.  Cory “spartacus” is out… Weirdly indistinguishable from the rest, which means the “did race do him in?” Gets asked as others indistinguishable from the rest do better than he.

Bloomberg continues to bombard the uninterested electorate with national tv spots — oddly playing up getting fired at the age of 30.  (Relatability?). The one guy I’ve known who had him as his ideal candidate four year’s back ain’t interested.

Lincoln Chafee is in the libertarian race — for what libertarian electorate, I can’t say.

How utah media notes the republican primary challengers

Monday, January 6th, 2020

President Donal Trump faces only token opposition from six other lesser known Republicans

It’s pretty well official.  Joe Walsh and Bill Weld equal Roque Dr la Fuente. (His son, running for some of the same seats, will be on the Democratic ticket.)

decalibrating realignments

Monday, January 6th, 2020

Hashtag wwwiii is apparently big right now. Certain recalibrations decalibrate as Trump takes up the policy preferences of your John Boltons. International answer holds an underwhelming protest and I can’t for the life of me decide if the lack of democrats is good or bad — on one hand, politically you want no part of this grab bag of leftist grand unification, on the other hand — it is a spot of protest. There ought be a sliver of maga-ers who bought into Trump’s claims that Obama was itching to a 2012 war for electoral purposes. There isn’t.

The likes of Alex Jones cheerleading the administration on this one, thumping the president’s belligerent fu to Iraq’s parliamentary “us out” statement. When Trump turns into Bush and they don’t respond accordingly…

Yes there is no impeachment

Wednesday, January 1st, 2020

Welcome to a new year.  Trump — supposedly oh so reticent on deploying troops– (his best feature) has ripped up not so much goodwill in Iraq as relative I’ll will toward Iran and Lindsey Graham promised it won’t be Benghazzi again.  Nay. .. Not Obama’s and Hillary’s molehill of a scandal… Think Carter’s troubles… Politically hard to figure what it swallows up.

We open 2020 without much figured in the endless Democratic primary.  Maybe an echo of those Republican primaries of older where everyone gets the day in the sun before Biden or Romney go away with it.  I guess that’s how it works when there’s no celebrity exhausting the media bubble.  Yang is Paul, I suppose.

It’s maybe a little weird as I listen to a conversation on hoping Trump will be impeached, not able to inject– deed is done.  Unless you go by that interesting logic of not if senate don’t take it up.  I hate to say it but McConnell ‘s response to Pelosi on not handing it over til they know what the senate is doing … We didnt ask for it… Makes sense.
