    Not saying that you are wrong, just saying that the constitutional House rules are a pretty low-bar because the House is a pretty low institution. Pelosi obviously did not want to go this route, but...

    There is no evidence that Noah Smith has any idea what he is talking about. He is the same age as me and only had a brief tenure as an assistant professor before becoming a full-time columnist. The...

    So:
    1. I don't think Trump himself is anything more than a harbinger, but I'm cynical. Things like fraying of NATO, hitting the press, pushing the judiciary to change by eliminating the filibuster:...

    Trump's eroding a lot of norms. It's not super dangerous when he does it, because he's not politically competent, but he's weakening the dam for a politically savvy populist to come along and really...

    The Constitutional Provisions for impeachment are based on the idea that the House is an elected mob with pitchforks that gets to hold power for 2 years so we don't have another Shay's Rebellion....

    I get pooped on, peed on, or spat up on almost every day now, so being called a "leftist" is probably not high on my list of daily annoyances :/

    I will say that I would occasionally get called a...

    Okay, so that "Harris" call turned out to not be so good. I have no idea how this Steyer guy came out of nowhere, and I am absolutely flabber-gasted that YANG is still qualifying for damn debates.

    There has always been a touch of Trump Derangement Syndrome, but there are no leftists here (at best, one very partisan Democrat, which is NOT the same a leftist).

    Yeah, I'll be first on the wagon for saying the Democrats are totally insane, but this entire thing is absolutely the fault of Donald Trump being a complete dumbass AND a complete blowhard. If he was...

    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.

    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...
