  • I have just a question. They do not seem to talk that much (or at all) about Pete Buttigied, even though he is the great revelation of the primary. Instead, they make all this fuzz about Beto, who is clearly not doing a great campaign (maybe it's just a question of relaunching again :)

  • I think they are absolutely wrong with their dirty cops analogy, at least as far as rank and file are concerned. I'm friends with some Trump supporters. They actually do believe that they're being unfairly targeted, that Trump is doing a wonderful job, that the media isn't reporting all his amazing accomplishments. These are otherwise intelligent people (some of them) who have committed themselves to a worldview that, as their leaders' actions and statements have gotten more and more bizarre, increasingly requires that they accept irrational conspiracy theories. When faced with enduring emotional pain versus adding just a little more intellectual irrationality, people will reliably choose protecting their emotions. Eventually, their views are so warped that it would be not just painful, but devastating, to reject them. They are the proverbial frog in the water, and the temperature has been increasing for 20 or 30 years, culminating in the absolute nonsense that they perform incredible mental gymnastics to contort their logic into accepting. The alternative is to turn their entire worldview on its head and reject almost everything they've believed for YEARS. And those of us on the left are not immune to this phenomenon. We can't afford to be smug. All of us need to periodically examine our beliefs and why we hold them to ensure we're not falling into that trap ourselves. G-d help us if both major parties were to become untethered from reality to the extent the Republican party has become.

  • I'm disappointed Elizabeth Warren decided to announce she wouldn't go on Fox News. It's a giant audience and a giant opportunity- in saying this, she gives the impression that she's scared. She may be convincing a few people at a red state rally standing in front of a closed coal mine, but that's not enough to gain real traction. In order to win the Presidency you have to be not only strategic but bold, which she's proved she obviously is in many ways. If you hit Fox News hosts and viewers with some logic and facts, it sounds crazy but you may be surprised. Of course it's also possible that the appearance goes very badly, but if you can't handle a single audience that votes the other way, maybe you're not ready to run for President. Blind partisanship is a cancer, and Democrats going on Fox News is one of the best methods of fighting this.

  • I think Warren is the smartest person on policy that I have seen so far. Are Booker and Buttigigeg smarter overall? I don't know. Warren seems to be smart in a way that counts for the Presidency. Maybe I like her because she stands for working people without abandoning economic principles that work (Capitalist ones). Maybe I like her because she is Cherokee like I am. Whatever the case, I might just vote for her in the primaries.

    Conner FieldsConner FieldsAylar önce
    • Really? None of her policies are realistic. All she did was take Bernie's policies and then move to the left of them. They all require at minimal for the Dems to hold the House and Senate. Which seems very unlikely to happen. And there have already been some candidates that have spoken out against them. Just imagine how they would be received by the much more conservative Dems in the party.

  • As a South Texan I had to respect the Pod Save America guy who was actually able to say Beto while the best Colbert could do was Baydo. If you didn't catch it play it back and notice the difference - it's bet not bay and toe not doe. Not that I'd vote for him (or anybody else from the Dem right wing) but at least get his name right for chrisake, it's not that hard.

  • Sadly or thankfully I’ll be finally tuning into these fine gents and their podcast. I last saw their interviews on Stephen and neglected to listen. But always appreciated the dynamic. The middle sneakers wearing chap had the vibrato of both his compatriots and the wherewithal to be deadpan millennial. He speaks to me on a separate level and so do all three physically and spiritually. The boy sitting next to Stephen attempts to be funny and when the audience doesn’t react to his jokes it’s personally affecting his psyche and his desire for humor begins to wane. He is of his own right appreciated and funny when he least expects it. But his friend with sneakers even picks up on this and offers and absurd metaphor where the audience erupts. Stephen being a master at his craft picks up on without a beat and spins a question and snaps us to reality with the boy who does entrance the crowd both in his endearing jokes if not his bold passion and no nonsense vindication of anyone who is against America funny or not. Seriousness will always be more appreciated stick to your guns. Let Stephen do the jokes. If you don’t land them don’t take it to personal. The audience is a whole beast. You’re charming either way. But cutie with the booty, Kennedy socks my love. So bright and idk handsome. It’s hard to listen to any of you without noticing your endearing quirks. From the teary eyes to the perfect pants hike up. Y’all three are a trinity I see holy enough. 🙏🏻
