the Black vote is going to be quite surprising to all you liberals.

Since the "laptop from hell" story didn't work out, is Lil Wayne going to be Trump's October surprise?

You think Black people's votes are dictated by hip hop artists? You think Trump would've rented an apartment to Lil Wayne back in the day?

Interesting side note: 50 Cent retracted his Trump endorsement.

Posted in: GOP slowly gaining as early vote total surpasses 2016 See in context

this week you will see all the national polls go down from 10 to 14 point leads to 5 or less. So that the polls can claim they weren’t so wrong when Trump wins.

Why wouldn’t they just do this from the beginning then?

To claim that polls may not be entirely accurate is one thing. To claim they are deliberately skewed makes no sense. What possible benefit would there be?

Posted in: Mute buttons and plexiglass: Inside the final 2020 debate See in context

the Trump campaign opposed the use of plexiglass for Thursday's event, just as they did ahead of the vice presidential debate earlier this month.

The plexiglass is a visual reminder that Covid-19 is still with us. The Trump campaign would like us to believe it's in the past because it makes their boss look bad.

Expect to hear lots of deflections and distractions from Trump, bringing up fictions about socialism, banning the suburbs and fossil fuels and red meat, doubling taxes, Hunter Biden, rigged election, dishonest media, greatest and most persecuted POTUS in history, etc.

Unless Biden really screws up, Trump is going to come out of this looking even worse than now.

But no time at all to talk about allegations that "the Big Guy" received a cut of Chinese and Ukrainian money. Didnt even come up. must have been due to "time constraints".

He did not answer questions about the last time he tested negative before contracting the virus, saying he did not recall precisely.

Uh-huh.

Uh-huh.

Trump wiped the floor with Biden.

In the debate, Trump was louder, more aggressive, and bullied more. Therefore he won. I want my president to be like a pro wrestler. Biden is too boring. I want someone to hug a flag and stick it to the libs.

Watched a bit of both candidates at their "town halls". Biden gave clear and detailed answers. He knows what he's talking about, and he showed that he is capable, wise, and compassionate. So boring. Trump gave kindergarten-level answers to policy questions ("good", "best", "disaster"), and focused on how great he is and how everyone has been so unfair to him. He looked ready to explode in a narcissistic temper tantrum fireball. I want my president to be like that.

Posted in: GOP pushes Barrett toward court as Democrats call it sham See in context

Sen John Cornyn, R-Texas, said he understands Democrats' “disappointment." He said, "Their loss is the American people's gain.”

Cornyn is forgetting that the majority of the American people are not Republican, evangelical Christian, anti-abortion, anti-gun control, or billionaires. And the majority of Americans believe that the SC nomination should happen after the election.

Let’s stop calling her ACB. Stop appropriating the legacy of RBG, a true champion of justice for all, especially for those less privileged in social status.

Barrett is a champion for the Republican Party and its loudest, richest backers.

Posted in: Barrett keeps Democrats, Trump at bay in Senate hearing See in context

Barrett claims she only wants to uphold the law as written. But she refuses to acknowledge the law against voter intimidation.

She once ruled in favor of expanding gun rights for ex-felons, but ruled against expanding their voting rights. When asked about the reason for this inconsistency, she claimed that voting rights are “collective” and not individual. That doesn’t sound particularly like an originalist reading of the Constitution.

Barrett has been groomed for this position for years. She knows what she’s there to do. She can pretend otherwise, but everyone knows the game.

What a patriot.

What dark money? If the Federalist Society Society can send cash of money to the candidates they choose and that’s bad, why is it ok for Soros and celebs and big tech to back their candidates?

Why don’t you do some research on that. The dark money coming from the right dwarfs anything coming from the left.

Personally, I don’t think money from anyone should be pouring into groups that write amicus briefs that influence judges. I believe in an independent, nonpartisan judiciary.

Do you agree?

The president, a former reality TV show star and a keen follower of viewing figures, will be seeking to score a victory over Biden by attracting a bigger audience

He may succeed in drawing a bigger audience, as his provocative and unhinged rants are more “entertaining”. But he won’t expand his base. Those choosing to watch will be there for the show, whether in cultish ecstasy, or in horror.

59% said a decision to gradually relax restrictions on entry to the country by foreigners with long-term visas from Oct 1 was too soon, 

Foreigners with long-term visas are probably infected when returning from abroad. Japanese are probably not infected when returning from abroad.

Please don't ask me why I think this is true.

Why are you posting an opinion piece from 2012? Is this supposed to discredit all the polls (including those by Fox) that show Trump losing the race? Try harder. Try a more recent article.

It was Gretchen Whitmer's fault that she almost got kidnapped. It was Jacob Blake's fault that he got shot in the back seven times. It's the media's fault that Trump utters nonsense and lies on a daily basis.
