Re: Hijack this thread

Happened to a friend of mine. The details are nightmarish, because his "offense" was so laughably minor, but he was targeted by a social justice group he supports who was looking to continue their presence in the local media and local politics, and he just unwittingly provided them with an opportun...

Re: Issues 2020: Electability

This one can be summed up as "moderates kinda do better than extremists more often than not." Pfff https://www.nytimes.com/2019/08/19/opinion/warren-harris-biden-electability-2020.html Does Anyone Know What Electability Is? The findings from political science on electability are sparse.

Re: Issues 2020: Electability

I hear you, but I think you are equating electability with political position/preference. Too broad, I think. When I hear people use the word, I hear them thinking "electability" means a certain attribute inherent in the candidate. I think there are a fair amount of people who believe that politica...

Re: Pete Buttigieg 2020

There are demographics who'd rather vote for a gay man than a female of any kind. And vice versa. Social privilege is a complex matrix. I wonder if this would be viewed as a case of workplace privilege. Which is still brutal on women. In individual cases, of course, the social privilege is more of ...

Re: Issues 2020: Electability

I would love to see someone who can can actually lead win the nomination. We have some really good people running. Also just realized that "not having electibility" is not the same as "unelectible" to me.* And many people here and elsewhere thought Hillary was "unelectible." Y'know, after. NB. I tho...

Re: Issues 2020: Electability

I think clearly that Biden is not preferred by many of the left wing /young Dems because he is (for want of a better word) a moderate. This, I think, goes back to electable ... by whom.

Re: Issues 2020: Electability

Says a lot about Ms. Warren if "electability" is the arguably single angle of attack. I think "electability" is code for describing everyone who isn't a straight white male (or is named Bernie Sanders). Yeah. In this case, a girl. "Electability" plays into the question of elected ... by whom . For ...

Watch as the media jumps on the debunked Biden story while ignoring the trump story. This would be like if after the breakin at the Watergate Hotel the media instead asked what the DNC was hiding.
It's a test. Now or never, fucking media. Change or die.

Re: Issues 2020: Electability

Many people, including many on this board, seem to think that this primary is the GE already, and that we already have a nominee. It isn't and we don't.

Re: Congressional Committees: Re FBI's Independence; Barr Investigation

Pretty sure Orngymandias views suing his enemies as a way to financially crush them and smear them, and is uninterested as to whether not he will prevail. He can just pretend he won, so no biggy.

Re: Issues 2020: Electability

PSA - Many people, including many on this board, think that until electability can be defined (and for me, somehow quantified in a way that isn't a poll asking people if they think a series of Xs can beat Y). To me, using "electability" to say a candidate shouldn't win the race is a way of making a ...
