    • AOC, Ilhan Omar and Tlaib Endorse Sanders
      I find it interesting that  many centrists are angered and surprised. They though these, arguably the most progressive members of the House caucus, would endorse Warren. Certainly by recent standards Warren is progressive and left leaning, but she’s weak sauce compared to Sanders. But centrists thought because she was a woman, AOC, Tlaib and Omar […]

Re: Comey

There’s a lot to be said about Comey’s book. I hope many of you say it.

Until I wrap up what I’m doing today, I’ll put this out there:

Comey is the propagator of implicit bias. He’s a conservative. If you see what he writes through that lens, it will all start to make sense. I don’t agree with every decision he made. In fact, it’s his letter that lead to us being in this moment in time with a reckless two year old disguised as a 71 yr old version of Gary Busey’s mugshot in charge of the most powerful nation on earth.

But keep in mind that he is an accurate reporter of what he observed. It’s what he did with that information once it was processed by his 19th century worldview that f#%*ed us up beyond all recognition.


Donald Trump is losing it. No, seriously:

You know, I grew up during the Ephraim Zimblist days when the FBI was a revered institution. I didn’t know anything about J. Edgar Hoover and that stuff. All I knew was the FBI was on the job to catch bad guys. Sure, it’s not perfect and it’s always had conservative lawmen who were a little too straight and narrow for my tastes, mostly narrow. But I never doubted their dedication or professionalism. I lived down the street from an FBI agent at one time and always thought very highly of his integrity and skill.

To have Trump call these people “thieves and lowlifes” is deeply offensive to me. I have always been proud of our FBI and Treasury agents. This is really going too far. It goes without saying that Trump owes all of us an apology. But what I’d like to point out to him is that if he wanted to keep his seedy private life private and operate his corrupt businesses out of the spotlight, he shouldn’t have run for president. There’s no better way to force open the kimono than by getting elected.

That’s the deal. You get elected, we get to keep you accountable. The FBI works for US.
