How do you spell “hypocrisy”? “G-O-P.”

Republicans would like you to believe they are the party of “national security”–except when it’s the security of the nation’s Capitol… “House Charges Donald Trump With Impeachment for ‘Inciting an Insurrection’” Republicans would like you to believe they are the party of “fiscal responsibility”–just don’t look at the national debt too closely… “Trump Will Create More Debt Than Obama”   […]

In the aftermath of Wednesday’s attempted coup attempt by the sitting president of the United States, one thing is abundantly clear: There needs to be a major reckoning, and those responsible must be held accountable.

An Annotated Field Guide to 2020 Presidential Voters

Democrats… You supported Amy Klobuchar, or Pete Buttigieg, or another “more centrist” candidate in the primaries; now voting for Biden… You consider yourself a moderate; thoughtful, empathetic, perhaps fiscally conservative yet socially liberal; you were attracted to the intelligence of Pete, or Amy’s “seriousness”, but believe that at this point, they would want you to vote for Biden, too.   […]
