lest anyone thing that Trump is anything but a performance artist and is actually a profane baboon, check out this thoughtful analysis he has of Citizen Kane.

seriously.

No one is calling him "the clown car", he's just the driver.

I find this kind of talk tiring, I have friends on the other side that have unloaded on the Clintons and Obama and their supporters with insults and belittling remarks, I find I can not have reasonable discussions with them

did you guys already talk about this #WhichHilary thing? that black protestors at Hilary's private event who pointed out that she used to consider some criminals (especially black people) to be "super predator," I mean.

it was pretty unfair, imho. i remember the "superpredator" scare in the early 1990s. i remember reading about it in, like, Time when i was a teenager.

it was junk science, and racially loaded, and has since been debunked.

http://www.nytimes.com/2014/04/07/us...-90s.html?_r=2

it's pretty unfair to say that Hillary "pushed" the theory when she mentioned it once, like, 20 years ago, at a time when it was in the news and part of the conversation around crime.

yeah, big news in Dem primaries, but anyone that thinks Bernie deserves black votes over Hillary is uninformed. Her history may have a spot or two. But he is a zero or worse with his public record. But of course, the old guy is the hot ticket, feel the Bern

I thought it is sort of unfair to blame her for whatever she said in '96 but it's true that for black people, that kind of history of her must be devastating, I can imagine. it's also true that apparently mass incarceration happened in Clinton era so I guess this may change some dynamics of which racial groups (generally) vote for who if these protests make enough sparks or get enough attentions from media.

keep in mind the Clintons are from Arkansas, the South and the Confederates were Democrats and slave holders, young people who care about 'blacklivesmatter# should go with a liberal northern like Bernie

I thought this was a good analysis:

Well there's a difference between not being able to have a discussion because you don't like what letter is behind their name and not having a discussion due to lack of substance. There is no substance to discuss with him, I've asked and no one can provide.

Always a fun site to play around with.

2016 Presidential Election Interactive Map

The TV media wants a national horse race, but as we know it ain't won that way and Don isn't flipping states despite the hype and wall to wall coverage.

Currently, both Sen. Sanders and Mrs Clinton are beating Trump by around 294-303EVs and that's low (ish) only because it's based on an outlying poll in Ohio from last week. Essentially.. Donny's moving no Obama era Blue states over an extended polling period and locking them again and again the way the president did with Virginia and Ohio in 2008, neither are any of the Rs for that matter... okay, well not exactly true - one state, Colorado seems to have slipped a bit for the Dems across the 2015/2016 board with every R candidate ahead by a slim margin, but it also has a high % of undecideds as well, so who knows.

North Carolina seems to be coming into play again ala 2008, Virginia is a strong 50%+ Dem as is NH for both candidates - all to date. Since this cycle began 276 EVs seem to be consistently going the way of both Democratic candidates through highs and lows and scandals and such and such, god, even the latest Fox (yes... Fox) News national poll has both HC and Bern beating Twump and again and again 191EVs is the most Donny gets despite his primary wins and surges and that is assuming all the McCain/Romney states go his way should he get this (ugh) nomination. Ironically it's Rubio, Kasich and wow.. Ben Carson who have done the best against both Dems just now, albeit the latter's polls are months old now.

Here's the argument I tried to make the other day, in much more coherent terms:

Lessons from the Donald Trump-Marco Rubio Screamfest - The New Yorker

Quote:
There’s a very good chance that Trump will be the nominee of one of the country’s two major parties—last night’s debate likely won’t change that. There are only a few days until Super Tuesday, and Trump is well ahead in most states, though not in Texas, Cruz’s home. And no one else onstage seemed all that Presidential. Rubio acted a little too pleased with his hits, like a guy doing an extended dance after hitting a single in the company softball game. It didn’t help that his lines seemed memorized. Cruz, in one of his cross-talking squabbles, was effectively shut down when Trump called him a “basket case.” Carson, discussing judicial nominees, said he’d look at the “fruit salad of their life.” Kasich said that he’d have resolved the Apple-F.B.I. fight by secretly locking all the parties in a room. More important, the debate was empty of a counterbalancing vision. When the radio host Hugh Hewitt asked about “the issue that keeps me up at night, which is religious liberty,” none of the candidates responded with a critique of Trump’s plan to ban non-citizen Muslims from entering the United States (which, unlike the Polish workers, they did not have to search for), or of his interest in closing mosques. They knew that that wasn’t what Hewitt cared about, as opposed to his fear that Christian religious institutions would “have to bend their knee and provide morning-after pills.” Their positions are not so far from Trump’s. In this area, the mystery may not be why they don’t attack Trump’s policies but why so many supposedly serious candidates basically agree with him.

They certainly don’t agree in all areas. Cruz, with leading questions and prosecutorial zeal, forced Trump to acknowledge that he does not, indeed, want people to die “on the sidewalks and the streets.” Cruz made it clear that he considered this a damning admission. And Trump said, as he has before, that although he opposed abortion rights and would defund Planned Parenthood, he was glad that the group screened women for cancer. A party that regards such a position as mad radicalism is likely to be confused by Trump, and to deserve him.
