Maybe it's that they don't think Bevin is great, b/c he's not.

 

I really, really hope Trump doesnt drag Bevin across the finish line...

The stuff about Barron is fairly open secret in DC.  Not fair game.

I have news fatigue, tbh. It is a combination of Trump and outrage politics. Trump on his own is awful enough, but the #RESIST culture of being outraged, and then outraging even more at something entirely predictable is exhausting and I really see the 2020 cycle just absolutely burning a lot of people out.

People who don't have time to engage in civics in a democracy.  Get rolled then.

good

Quote

More than half (57%) of registered voters in the state support an impeachment inquiry into President Trump, although this support differs along party and ideological lines. Nearly half (47%) express “strong support” for the inquiry while nearly two in five (37%) registered voters “strongly opposes” it. Only one in five (21%) registered voters believes it is acceptable for a president to ask a foreign leader to investigate a political opponent, regardless of how they feel about the impeachment inquiry itself.

Lol I didn't know reading Facebook debates with Minion memes and being lied to on all sorts of media outlets constituted "engaging in civics".

Hilarious.  Better to be a serf because that's what we are all anyway.  Why are you here then?

I could have sworn I saw an        “ok, boomer”  appended on a response.

Guess it was deleted.

I just wanted to see the justification. Still warrants the same response.
