Watching the primary returns this evening has been a bag of mixed emotions. Sad because Pete Buttigieg wasn’t a part of the excitement. Happy that Amy Klobuchar had suspended her candidacy. Frustrated that so many people voting today had unnecessary long waits due to the lack of enough voting machines or precincts for the number… Continue reading An Evening of Mixed Emotions
What a whirlwind of politics! Can a person even keep up? Obama appears to have really been making the weekend calls and I wish he hadn’t. He and Jimmy give Pete a talking to, and Pete is out and endorsing Biden. Obama gives Amy a talking to, and she is out and endorsing Biden. Obama… Continue reading Obama Got Game!

This is what we should demand and expect from our… Continue reading This is an Appropriate Response to Trumpism
I’m starting to wonder if you really want to beat Trump in November, take the Senate, and keep the House, because you sure aren’t acting like it. First, there were 25+ people running for office. That is a whole lot of ego in one field. Hurray, we have a great field from which to choose!… Continue reading Damn, Democratic Party Leadership! Get It Together!
