That and the fact that he’s not a woman or a minority, each of whom are typically viewed as more liberal than they are. After all, Hillary Clinton, a dyed-in-the-wool moderate whose resume was as disappointing to progressives in almost all the same ways that Biden’s is (supported the ‘94 crime bill, supported that Read more

As a side discussion, the argument that Biden is considered centrist, non-threatening and bland says a huge amount about American politics. Read more

This was peak Tea Party and explains why Trump and his MAGAts are not some unpredictable anomaly. There is a direct line from how McCain/Palin ran their campaign to Trump and his MAGAt brigade.

The ads running against Biden (I live in PA, they’re playing on the regular), the language of the administration, all seek to make the choice as being a simple one: threatening displays of violence by angry mobs, and no police, in the *hint hint* places where Democrats live... or lots of police and no angry mobs.

It was great, Waddles instantly became all defensive, indignant and angry, like he just couldn’t believe anyone would dare to question him. What we relly need is someone who’ll keep pushing his buttons like that until he blows a gasket and has a stootz tantrum that the whole world witnesses.

Dear Lord that scoffing correction from Chris Wallace that Biden does not want to defund the police. Also this was kind of a brilliant ad from Fox News for the interview as what the hell will happen when Trump sees that the charter does not say anything about abolishing the police.

Don’t forget that Stephen Hawking would have been dead at 20 if he’d had to suffer under socialized medicine....

(the UK has not forgotten the GOP’s ACA gibberish campaign)

This was also mainly an excuse to post the lovely Hawking 50p, which I got in my change today and made me happy.

If it makes you feel any better, I’m pretty sure “Fox News Segments” are listed as cursed items in the Dungeons & Dragons Players Handbook. The stat drain effect only lasts 1d6 days, so it should wear off. Read more

“The great irony, Judge Jeanine, is that the organizers of Black Lives Matter who pledge allegiance to the destruction of America have a lot more in common with the Confederate generals that they hate than they would like to admit, because it was in fact the Confederacy that initially wanted to kick out federal Read more
