• It's hard for me to decide who has been attacked the most. The attacks against both have been unrelenting and  vile. Attacks that the Clintons ran a drug ring out of the Little Rock airport, that they killed dozens of people to hide that and other crimes, that Hillary personally killed Vince...

    • There was no big backlash in the black community after Bill Clinton's direct confrontation with Black Lives Matter in Philadelphia. Hillary won 70% of the black vote in Pennsylvania. The Black Lives Matter protest had zero impact.

      The holier-than-thou Progressive crowd will blame black...

    • An article that nicely describes (some of?) the disconnect blacks had with #OWS.

    • Before weighing anchor...

      I must point out one more thing. When it comes to the political evolutionary stance of a Kevin Drum or the so-called...

    • What structure is in place to support the revolution? Who are the leaders?

    • Someone's always comsplaining.

      Here's a good summary for millennials.

    • Way too often it's feignsplainin'.

    • I only have so much time available to me to try to prove the earth orbits the sun

      I don't think that is what you are trying to prove.  It's more like you are trying to prove that the sun is evil and should not be trusted and those who are OK with the sun are...

    • Blacks are generally more Progressive than whites with the exception of homosexuality. The views on homosexuality in the black community have changed to a more Progressive view aided by Barack Obama. Blacks are Progressive but pragmatic. Al Sharpton had a Progressive agenda but he did not obtain...

    • Ah whatever. I should have written oldmansplaining.

    • President Obama's been attacked like no other President in history for over seven years.  His approval ratings were never even close to as bad as Hillary's...

    • Your arguments have a much of a muchness quality about them:

      1) You defend aggressively the indefensible - free trade, Clinton's vote for war on the people of Iraq, mass incarceration, gorging on the largesse of the big banks while portraying oneself as their enemy, etc. 

      2) You...

    • Rankled indeed and proud of it. Sail on, OGD.

    • This isn't about Sanders, it's about rejecting the possibility of revolutionary change based on a misrepresentation of history.

    • My last comment to you (and for others), In the same link you pull up, Hillary had an unfavorable rating of 29% 3 years ago, and lower further back. Repeated negative comments during a...

    • Okay, you wrote "determination" about the cap if that changes anything at all.

      In the meantime you didnt discuss anything of substance and ignored my invitation to do so. 

      If youve ever rebutted anything I said, it was a trivial point, missing the forest for a twig.

      Whine...

    • I have a lot of sympathy for the argument that none of this is new.  Open primaries.  Closed primaries.  Caucus states. Voter ID/suppression laws.  Arcane party rules.  There's a whole industry of experts that anyone seriously running in a party primary needs to have on board in order to get...

    • As I wrote RMRD, Democratic primary voters prefer her to Sanders.  The problem is that the general electorate comprises independents, Republicans, and members of third and fourth parties as well.  Yes Democrats are a plurality but to win nation-wide elections, Democratic candidates must have...

    • Here's a better response:

      "You're right Hal.  I wrote that you wrote that Clinton will 'not raise the cap on social security'.  In fact, you did not write that or anything that can be fairly interpreted as expressing such a sentiment."

      I specifically wrote that Clinton could...

    • Thanks Michael.  Of course Drum is wrong here but I'm damned if I can figure out how to reach those who don't get it.  Obviously, you're having trouble too.  I'm not real big on the term "mansplaining" though.  If it really is an acceptable term, we will also need pithy gender-specific words to...
