Weird thing to harp on. There are plenty of dumb American design conceits, but master baths are pretty obvious. My house doesn't have one and I'm really looking forward to changing the layout of the upstairs to accommodate one. Privacy is nice, especially if you have kids in the house. Who wants to get dressed to go use the hall bathroom, especially after adult activities?
He's 74 now. Nobody is going to elect an octogenarian for President.
Jeb! is done for sure. I'm not sure he would even want to come back.That was the weird thing about the last eight years. The Republicans splintered across lines of "not hating Obama enough." They were just destroying each other on these arbitrary ideological purity tests.The Trumpocalyse might give them a chance to reform the coalition with some more sane norms. Or at least I hope. I'd love to be able to have an alternative party to vote for at some point.
This is what happens to poly sci majors who don't get jobs in academia.Wasserman-Schultz has been pretty roundly criticized for letting the Republicans run roughshod over the Dems at the local level. Somehow they totally missed the fact that losing local control means you get fucked on redistricting. Plus you never develop new candidates.It's going to be interesting to see when the next generation of Democrats emerge.I wonder at the fallout for this crop of Republicans. ...
You gotta love intellectuals who think the real world should mirror their study, and not the other way around. I had figured poly sci people would be drooling over this election. There have got to be hundreds of low hanging PhD thesis topics to come from it.
The Rise of Trump has been pretty well diagrammed, but nobody really talks about how we got stuck with Hillary. I guess everyone just assumed the fix was in and it wasn't worth thinking too much about.I'm curious who the Democrats would have come up with if Hillary wasn't the Anointed One.
Hillary and the DNC aren't the ones who blamed Russia for the attack. Private US cybersecurity firms have analyzed the attack and say it's consistent with Russian state actors. They could be wrong, but it's the general consensus in intel circles. It's not like Clinton just made it up.Why would you expect evidence would be released? That's not a thing that happens, especially in ongoing investigations. It's not like it would be anything to anybody outside of a small...
The intelligence community seems to think that Gufficer 2.0 is an artifice of the Russians.I listened to it live and have read the transcript and I have no idea wtf his point was.That would be kind of a weird attack anyway. The DNC or Hillary aren't the ones who concluded that Russia was involved.
Assange openly loathes the Clintons and Wikileaks in general has a pretty strong incentive to keep these hacks going. Why would you trust them for the source of the hacks?
Did you actually watch the debate, or are you just watching/reading clips?Clinton has a whole prepared remark on cybersecurity, that features a comment about state actors. The example is Russia hacking the DNC. That's the line Trump chose to pull out to address in his response. Not anything about policy, but "Russia didn't do the hack." How is that anything but defending Russia?You mean letting Trump interrupt Hillary 25 times in the first 24 minutes?Hillary's not a...
