Very interesting that you started this lengthy comment by noting, accurately, that whether to publish this book is “entirely their choice,” and somehow ended it by bemoaning people who “want to control what gets published or not” and hoping “the publishing world is as free as possible,” and presumably don’t realize… Read more
For me, it’s not that all people who don’t like Warren are misogynistic because they don’t like her. It’s the continual refrain that “I like her/her policies, but I don’t think she can win because she’s a woman, so I can’t vote for her in the primary.” It is a misogynistic narrative that I’m just sick of.

I don’t have beliefs (???) about this situation; I have opinions that I stated and I only said what I said.

Talking to Warren voters, your demographic data completely tracked, but I also noticed kind of a lack of ideological consistency. I talked to… Read more
The DNC strongly favored Biden from the start, and it’s all the more clear now when you consider that the delegate count between Biden and Sanders is not all that far apart. Now that their favored candidate finally had a good day, we’re all supposed to give up and just “accept the inevitability,” even though over half… Read more
