    Defining something as an effort to protect yourself when you have a conflict of interest is not brain injury, it is the immediate assumption. That's why you need to declare conflicts of interest and...

    I wouldn't count on this. I highly doubt that you'd be able to gather enough Senate Republicans to actually vote for a conviction, but "highly doubt" is not the same as "0%." This is an incredibly...

    Whether Iraq was a cluster doesn't change that we casually tossed the regime out like it was a carton of spoiled milk, and proceeded to hunt down most of the senior leaders until even Saddam Hussein...

    As of now, Biden is still the front-runner. Warren might have momentum after the first few states (which are whiter, where Warren does really well), but it's way, way, way too early to stay Biden is...

    That would require starting a regional war that Iran is clearly going to lose. Even if you think the US record in Iraq is shit, Saddam Hussein is dead and his entire regime is ashes.

    All these recession fears are really starting to drag me down. On the plus side, this recovery has been damned good to me, and food processing isn't recession-prone, so at least I am in a decent...

    Jeez, get over yourself. There was no "sound repudiation" of Trump, he got 46% of the vote. Even if you think he should have lost, that's more than the % of many other Western leaders. His popularity...

    I'd say things have changed pretty dramatically. Practically everyone feels like they should be able to throw their hat into the ring for President. It's a clown car. There's a lot changes because...

    GIGO, since the prediction markets are crap. Yang and Mayor Peter doing well has gotta be an "internet" thing. Apparently Mayor Pete is getting steam, and maybe the debates will carry him through,...

    Unfortunately these people are only quiet because political calculations make it convenient, and they still think the Fed was making the wrong moves back in 2010/2011: their new thing, at least in...

    To me it seems like you are way more interested in implementing center-left policy than you are in actually stabilizing the foundations of the republic. So, let's be clear here. You are a center-left...

    Sure, let's get rid of the Electoral College. Any President who can't get a majority of the vote shouldn't be President. If it's undecided, it gets thrown to the House as a contingent election.

    Hopefully someone runs against Trump, and only one person against Trump. Last thing the GOP needs is another three-ring circus in the primaries. I'd say Kasich or Romney are the best positioned at...

    A handful of men out of how many elected officials? It's not easy to become a popular politician at a nation-wide level. You're talking an exceedingly small sample size of Americans who can possibly...

    I obviously don't speak for anyone besides myself, but Warren doesn't come off as egg-headed to me. She comes across as an angry, spiteful grandmother who likes to lecture you and makes you have a...

    Most of the front-runners are all conservative bugbears, which is essentially the position you get yourself into when you start running for President in 2017 (or earlier, in the case of Warren)....

    Trump's wrong, but it's not clear to me who I should be rooting for if I am not a Cold War American. Afghanistan would be better off if the Soviets had somehow "won" and created a shithole state like...
