Not campaigning worked well for Biden in the primaries. Maybe it will here too. The polling lead looks stable.

No Hobsbawm was right. 2008 was an offshoot of the neo-liberal triumph that 1989 made possible. 1989 was the true pivot

Leaving aside his domestic politics, it's hard to square the idea that Jesse Helms believed in "human freedom, human rights, equality of opportunity" with his strong support for Apartheid South Africa.

I'm curious to know as well. I read the old Garnett translation, which might have been a mistake. Thoughts

Many of the new voters Trump brought into GOP coalition were secular blue collar whites who liked that he seemed less like a holy roller than GOP norm. Those are voters who can be won back by Biden.

There's some chatter that the Biden campaign might start leaning more into health care as an issue in the home strech. It would make sense -- particularly since the court will decide the fate of the ACA.

Grounding major policy decisions in actual accountable democratic institutions is more likely to prevent a civil war than having them sorted out by courts with a life-time tenure.

Trump: Joe Biden is a dementia case who hides in the basement and is a puppet of left wing forces in the Democratic Party. Also Trump: Joe Biden is strong enough to kill the Supreme Being.

One thing this clip makes clear is that Scorsese's gifts as a director were inherited from his mom, who is trying to direct the scene she's in.

Trump won in 2016 because secular blue-collar whites liked him & thought he wasn't a Bible thumper like other Republics -- so it'll be ironic if his legacy is the end of Roe.

This is an honest statement of the stakes and agenda. Better to argue against this than about proxy issues like "norms" and "hypocrisy."
