    The House passed a resolution setting the rules for the impeachment investigation into Donald.

    Not a single Republican voted in favor of even investigating Donald over his quid pro quo with the leader of Ukraine. They wanted to impeach Obama for wearing a tan suit, but strong-arming weak nations to investigate your political rivals in exchange for desperately needed (and Congressionally authorized) aid is apparently perfectly acceptable.

    I thought I have become numb to the complete breakdown of every single norm in our constitutional government, but I just can't help but getting pissed off at this one.

    Where are all the sane Republicans who pledge allegiance to our Constitution and not a demagogue intent on shitting all over our Constitution?

    Once again - just IMAGINE if Obama did this...

    It's depressing how gullible and predictable Americans are. What's more depressing is that it works.

    Donald drags everything around him down to his level and the American people willingly follow like blind sheep walking off a cliff.

    The October debate will be on October 15, but it may run on 2 nights.

    This time, 11 candidates have qualified, and one of them is Tom Steyer, who had not qualified previously.

    I'd almost prefer it broken into two nights and having 5-6 debaters on stage each night. And instead of a random drawing, it should be the top five one night and the bottom 5-6 the other. I want to see more substantive discussions/debates that are longer than 30 second soundbites.

    That's what political parties do. It's the whole point of political parties.

    What would you call CNN's Climate Town Hall on 9/4/19?

    Before anyone chastises me for hating on Bernie, I'll say this: I'm voting for whoever the Democratic nominee is. I'm not wedded to Biden at all. I'm voting D whether the candidate is Biden (the person I think can carry the states we need), Warren (I actually like her a lot, but don't know about her appeal in the states that actually matter), Buttigieg (don't think he has a chance in hell of winning against Donald), Sanders (heaven forbid), or anyone else.

    We have to keep our eyes on the prize because if Democrats lose in 2020 then we may never have the opportunity to vote for a President again. And I'm not being hyperbolic.

    Anyone who thinks Joe Biden is too old to be President but doesn't think Bernie is should probably dust off their calculators.

    Being President isn't a reality show, as much as Donald and Bernie would like it to be. I don't care about having a beer with my President and I don't care if my President has a Freudian slip while 1,000 cameras are focused on them. I care about whether or not my President has the mental fortitude to make tough decisions for the betterment of our country, even if those decisions aren't always popular with the base.

    Joe Biden has that mental fortitude; Donald Trump does not.

    We have to be realistic here. We aren't trying to find the candidate that the "coastal elites" love. We have to find the candidate that Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin like more than Donald.

    That's it. If we don't do that then we'll all be watching in shock as Donald is sworn in for a second term because we shot ourselves in the foot yet again.

    It caused quite the stir when it was released not too long ago. Per usual - Republicans who are no longer in office felt freely to speak their minds about Donald while those still in office continue to act like Donald is Jesus reincarnate.

    As much as I used to love these types of books, I find myself being drawn more towards books that cover long spans of time recently, especially ones that focus on the rise and fall of empires. I still get my political fix by listening to various podcasts and my online news subscriptions, but I've found that reading books about Donald just makes me want to rip the pages out one by one and then burn those pages in a dumpster fire.

    To each his own though, so enjoy the book and let us know how it is.

    I think it's great news that there will only be one night of debate. It'll be even better when the field gets down to 5-6 candidates that actually have a (somewhat) realistic chance of winning the nomination.

    It's damn near impossible to have a quality debate on substantive issues when there's ten people sharing a stage. What I'm looking forward to is seeing how Biden will handle himself when he's forced to spend more time debating Warren, Sanders, and Harris head on.

    Biden can play defense and wait out the clock when there's 9 other people on the stage trying desperately to get their 15 seconds of fame, but he's eventually going to have to take the left flank of the party head on and be able to withstand their attacks if he's going to stand any chance against Donald.

    For now, I'm leaning towards supporting Biden in the primary because I think he's our best bet to win in Michigan, Wisconsin, and Pennsylvania. Honestly, we should just have a primary in those three states because they are the only ones that matter in 2020.
