Re: 2020 Presidential Election

August sounds optimistic to me, but maybe.

Isn't it common for the conventions to be a week apart? Or at least not unprecedented.

Re: Sam as Frodo's Garner

I don't like being reminded of the absurdity of The Shire's economics.

I think Aragorn would have cut capital gains taxes.

Re: 2020 Presidential Election

My point isn't that Cuomo has been horrible. And of course he looks good compared to Trump. I just don't see looking at all the Democratic governors handling the Covid-19 crisis and saying "yep, he's doing the best, he should be president." And given New York's density ( the city ) I think...

Re: 2020 Presidential Election

People are trying to draft Andrew Cuomo, governor of New York, to be the Democratic nominee. Never mind that I don't understand any real pathway for this -- why the fascination with him? I get that he's better on the novel coronavirus than, say, Trump, which I guess makes him look really presidentia...

Re: 2020 Presidential Election

If the only way for Warren's plans to look good is to compare them to Trump's border wall plan then they are not very good plans. It's easy for Warren to look good compared to Trump. It's easy for any candidate to look good compared to him. How a candidate compares with Trump is really not the point...

Re: 2020 Presidential Election

"Warren is objectively the most competent candidate in the 2020 race." This line appeared in a recent Vox article . What do you think of this line? It stuck in my mind as being bonkers in a pretty entertaining way, as well as being revealing of -- something. Or maybe it seems normal and t...

Re: Trump's America

Trump refuses to shake Pelosi's hand befofe the speech, Pelosi rips Trump's speech in half at the end. Freakin gradeschool pettiness. :nono: Refusal to shake hands rarely looks good for the refuser. I think it was a tactical mistake by Warren to refuse to shake Sanders's hand after the debate. And ...

Re: 2020 Presidential Election

The answer given by Adam Schiff, as I suspect Warren knew it would be, emphatically was that it did not reflect poorly on the Chief Justice or the Supreme Court, because he was doing a an exemplary job overseeing the trial. It was the rest of his answer that was the real point of the question. You ...

Re: 2020 Presidential Election

The Senate shall have the sole Power to try all Impeachments. I did everything I could to emphasize that, because *that* is what limits the Chief Justice's power. The Chief Justice may preside but he can't change the rules the Senate itself sets out for impeachment, because the Senate has the *sole...
