  • Rights For People With Disabilities? Elizabeth Warren Is Here To Help

    Elizabeth Warren keeps cranking out the policy proposals, because she has this funny notion that ideas matter, and being able to put them into action does too. Her latest proposal takes on rights and equality for people with disabilities, which only sounds like a niche issue to people who’ve never tried to get around with […] More

  • 2019: The Year Of The Other Tim Ryans

    Elizabeth Warren launched the exploratory committee for her presidential campaign exactly a year ago. Kamala Harris and Kirsten Gillibrand joined her in January. Kickass women (and Tulsi Gabbard) were running to finish the good work Hillary Clinton started. We were so excited! And then depression set in. Men got involved — mediocre men, boring men, […] More

  • 2019: The Year We Finally Started Taking Climate Seriously. Or More Seriously.

    Let’s start with good news on climate: In poll after poll, large majorities of Americans say they agree climate is a major concern and that the government needs to do more to reduce carbon emissions. More than three-quarters of adults and teens agree that human activity is affecting the climate, and a majority think it’s […] More

  • Ivanka Trump's Last Bullsh*t Of 2019

    Everybody, it’s a Sunday Show Rundown miracle! Welcome to this appearance by unqualified nepotistic senior White House advisor and First Lady Daughter Ivanka Trump. In a pre-taped interview (of course) on CBS’s “Face The Nation,” host Margaret Brennan sat down to go over three main topics: impeachment, Ivanka Trump’s “paid family leave” scam, and her […] More

  • Bret Stephens: To Beat Trump, Democrats Should Condemn Sister Souljah

    New York Times columnist Bret Stephens today brings us yet another “Conservative Republicans tell Democrats how to beat Donald Trump” column, explaining that if Democrats hope to unseat his party’s choice for president, they should all take a cue from popular Republican moderates like Jeb Bush and Mitt Romney. Stephens starts off with a sensible […] More

  • 'Democrat' Richard Neal Bones 'Surprise Billing' Bill, America, You, Your Mom

    One of the more awful current problems with US America’s fucked up mishmash of healthcare systems — beyond the fact that it leaves nearly 28 million Americans without any health coverage at all — is the phenomenon of “surprise medical billing,” which can occur when someone with insurance uses services they think would be covered, […] More

  • Pete Buttigieg Didn't Say That

    So here’s a weird trendlet. The bullshit debate talking points about how much Americans supposedly loooove their private health insurance (and would be very very sad if Medicare for All replaced it) is getting enough traction that it’s infecting the way some Democratic candidates frame their healthcare proposals. Elizabeth Warren has lately been playing up […] More

  • Carly Fiorina Supports Trump Impeachment, Might Vote For His Persona Anyway

    Former Hewlett-Packard CEO and failed Republican senatorial and presidential candidate Carly Fiorina surfaced this week. In an interview for some CNN podcast, and with the unerring political insight that led her to question Ted Cruz’s loyalty to America before becoming his stunt “running mate,” Fiorina told Poppy Harlow, “I think it is vital that [Donald […] More

  • Kamala Harris Is Dropping Out, And That Makes Us Sad

    California Senator Kamala Harris is dropping out of the Democratic primary. That makes us sad. She wasn’t the only candidate we liked, but she was one of the candidates we liked, and the primary was better with her in it. Primaries change a lot — especially now that they are one million years long — […] More

  • Shut Up, F*ck You, Gay Teen And Elizabeth Warren Not Making Us Cry, YOU'RE Crying

    At a town hall in Marion, Iowa, Sunday night, Elizabeth Warren switched up her usual format. Instead of the usual stump speech followed by a few questions (followed by selfies until the wee hours), Warren spoke only briefly, about 10 minutes, before opening up the floor to questions. Seventeen-year-old Raelyn, whose short hair wasn’t unlike […] More

  • Steve Bullock Will Do Anything For The Democratic Party But He Won't Do That

    Steve Bullock has suspended his campaign for president. The Montana governor was one of the last Tim Ryans standing. Unfortunately, he hasn’t stood on a Democratic primary debate stage since July. Marianne Williamson was also at that debate, so it’s sort of like winning a Grammy the same year as Milli Vanilli. Bullock was the […] More

  • Bloomberg 2020: Not *That* Rich Assh*le. *This* Rich Assh*le!

    It’s official. No one close to Michael Bloomberg could convince him not to run for president. The billionaire launched his hostile takeover of the Democratic Party yesterday. You knew this was coming when Bloomberg apologized last week for the “stop-and-frisk” policy that he pursued as New York City mayor. During the three terms he purchased, […] More
