  1. Past hour
  2. It was in an emailed newsletter I get from the Austin American Statesman, the newspaper in our capital. I've already deleted it. But this article from our local news talks about it a bit. https://www.nbcdfw.com/news/coronavirus/texas-changes-the-way-it-reports-covid-19-cases/2374284/
  3. August 23. It was weird. They did the show from Indy. Nobody but a few people. On Memorial day and not 300,000 people there was kinds weird to see. They had Rossi, Pagenaud, and the host. Can't remember his name. Rossi put on a **** of a show in that race (2019).
  4. Today
  5. I will go out on a limb as far as a prediction that Biden will not pick anyone with better progressive bona fides than Warren. If more progressive than Warren is the bar, some folks will surely be disappointed.
  6. If I'm Milwaukee I'm pretty upset about 1-16 seeding. They were pretty safe in the east while the western teams beat up on themselves. Now instead of Boston/Toronto/Philly in the 3rd round they are looking at the Clippers most likely, followed by the Lakers. Much tougher road for them IMO.
  7. I found myself missing the race yesterday. Glad to see they are running it later this year.
  8. I searched for incorrect case numbers in Texas but I couldn't find it. Is it from Twitter or FaceBook? Either way, Texas isn't the only state that made mistakes. Even entire countries. Look at the cute singing from the balconies in Italy. They "think" many cases were spread that way. Good meaning by good people, just a tragic outcome.
  9. These dissident Republican operatives are right to appeal to the heart. If you want to sway middle America to buy your product you have to get them to make the reactive purchase based on the emotional envelopment. They don't have to sell Biden with this. They just need to make the distinction to middle of the road Joe sixpack that Trump is a coward and a thief man-baby. Anyone else is preferable. Leave it to Biden's folks to sell him.
  10. Right. G2 mentioned it earlier...her best demo, primary after primary, was with college educated voters. And even after she dropped out of the primary, in state after state, Biden drew roughly equal of her supporters than Sanders did. And after the drama of the campaign, I'm not sure I would make the assumption that Warren would be a successful bridge to the part of Sanders base that needs motivation to vote for a ticket led by Joe Biden
  11. I don't either. I think Warren took votes from Klobuchar more than she did Sanders. I wonder if the Bernie Bros are still pissy that she endorsed Clinton?
  12. Bump. I'm just not sure I buy that she brings along the progressive wing.
  13. Here's what I like.When Klobuchar and Buttigieg dropped out, did the Bernie Bro progressives reach out to their voters to try to get them over to their side? No, they doubled down and whined it was rigged and did nothing to bring those voters in and instead made it into an us vs the establishment. Now they are demanding Biden extend an olive branch and appease these same people, who don't vote, with a progressive candidate of their choosing?
  14. Several states, mine included, were conflating virus tests and antibody tests in their reports. Plus repeated positives for multiple tests of a single patient were each treated as a new case in the numbers for some period of time. Supposedly Texas has now sorted that out, but OMG! How is such an error made?
  15. Klobuchar who actually performed better than Warren in her own turf.
  16. What's really insufferable about these Bernie Bro/Progressives is they just tell everyone what they want because they are too dumb to realize it themselves despite these progressive candidates never performing where it really matters.
  17. The ironic thing is that this will be played against her as a negative. Happens all the time to women who are confidently competent.
  18. So what's the serious alternative to Warren? Kamala Harris? Someone who couldn't even make it to Iowa.
  19. True as this may be, it doesn't mean the news should stop reporting on it and that we the people should stop remarking on it. It's still not normal. Or at least we shouldn't start to react as though it were.
  20. You mean like the Bernie Bros complained when the Klobuchar and Buttigieg supporters went to Biden? Bernie Sanders kept telling us his base was enough to defeat Trump and he couldn't even make it out of the primary and now we're demanding a progressive VP? If you can't vote for Biden over Trump because the VP isn't progressive enough, you probably weren't going vote anyways like many young progressives. Virginia was within 5% and very much a toss up state in 2016.
  21. You can get three things done at once by picking Elizabeth Warren. Old, but not quite as old as Biden and so the likelihood of her being President after Biden exists. She also broadens his appeal to progressives and those under 40. And in an age where we have a President who golfs during a pandemic and never takes this crisis or his job seriously, Warren has the ultimate appeal of someone who is a serious person, **** bent on putting together a plan and getting things done.
  22. When a man admits he's wrong just tip your hat and show some respect. Don't be a petty ********** and try to pile on.
