  1. I would be genuinely excited about voting for Biden/Warren.
  2. That doesn't really make any sense – Biden brought a different approach + foreign policy experience to Obama's ticket, wouldn't Biden then want someone who brought something different? He brings foreign policy experience so he doesn't need a VP who has that. FWIW, I'm not sure any of the leading VP candidates really have much foreign policy experience. Certainly not Harris or Abrams, and tbh it feels like Warren's weakest area as well. Shit, Klobuchar couldn't even name the Mexican president.
  3. I've come around completely on Warren as veep, in part because it seems like that dipshit Kennedy can just take her spot and not primary Markey. Honestly that's almost reason enough – Markey kicks ass – but also Warren as the one actually steering the ship in the White House would be a dream come true. And the more I think about it, the more I think Warren is a wash vis a vis Kamala and Black support. Kamala didn't exactly fire up the Black vote and Black women seem to really like Warren. As good as Kamala is/would be as an attack dog, Warren would be even better.
  4. On the one hand, I feel like Warren would be wasted as VP. On the other hand, George W. Bush spent eight years as "president" while Dick Cheney ran the country. Also, send Bush and Cheney to The Hague.
  5. I'm not sure one is more valuable than others in terms of advancing the progressive agenda. Certainly you need to flip more places blue if you have any hope of getting meaningful legislation passed, but the loudest voices on the left are responsible for the fact that we're even talking about things like M4A. Four years ago it was an absolute non-starter and now it's a popular idea, thanks to Bernie. Bit of a chicken-egg, I think.
  6. Sweeping Federal Lawsuit Seeks Election Changes in Wisconsin
  7. Distract, confuse, ad hominem attacks. Anything to avoid having to talk about public health.
  8. The Wisconsin Supreme Court is a joke on par with the US Supreme Court. Lame duck Justice (and I use that term loosely) Dan Kelly, who was voted out by an overwhelming margin on April 7, was the deciding vote in a 4-3 decision that struck done Governor Evers' "Safer at Home" order. It's a complete miscarriage of justice by a couple partisan hacks. The GOP-controlled state legislature, who only maintain control due to extreme gerrymandering, has offered fuck all when it comes to plans or ideas on how to deal with the pandemic, opting only to litigate the democratically-elected governor. It's disgusting. 70% of Wisconsinites support Evers' order and Evers has a 59% approval rating (33% disapproval). https://recombobulationarea.substack.com/p/5-marquette-poll-takeaways-huge-support
  9. Okay. How'd Trump's endorsement work out for Dan Kelly?
  10. Another special election today in northern Wisconsin. It's been solidly R since 2010, when they elected a dipshit from The Real World named Sean Duffy, who was a typical embarrassment-to-humanity Republican. Don't expect this one to flip blue but Tricia Zunker is a good candidate and Trump gave the Republican, Tom Tiffany the kiss of death last night w/ his enthusiastic endorsement, so who knows.
  11. Don't see how it's anyone but Kamala tbh. Her quick decision to drop her campaign was a signal at the time, I thought, and while I don't really buy the idea that the VP needs to be ready to step in from day 1, I think a lot of people do. Kamala (and Warren, certainly) ticks that box, from an optics perspective. I don't love her by any stretch of the imagination, but I think she's the best choice for VP and it's not really even close.
