He bowed out after the disaster of the Tet Offensive.

On my way back from Minnesota- such class. Just like Tom says - who raised these people?

I look forward to hacks like Levin going bug-eyed crazy and covering the camera lens in spittle trying explain how the President ordering American companies to do stuff is in the best Constitutional traditions of limited government.

I'm Greek Orthodox. You're not going to get me to defend the Papists.

Almost like it's a function of expertise or something. Louise went all crazypants on Russia and I don't think that's helpful.

You're assuming that the Trump vote is based on ideology. I think it's a cult of personality, and they're not going to defect for a "real" conservative or a "real" anything. The only candidate who can take the EC from Trump will be a Dem, period.

I think my views on Gabbard are as clear as they can be.

I just sat through the dreary convo in the bowling alley and then something about Bill's kid and the murder, and completely lost my concentration on it.

That's bullshit. I never wavered on Russia, I just never went down the crazy rabbit hole with people like Louise, who I think have no idea what they're talking about. This was me a year ago, which is where I was from the start and where I am now:

The Berkowitz ep was amazing. The rest of it is plodding, imo

That will never happen. There is no chance he will lose in a primary. As close to zero as one can predict in politics.

On a completely different subject, Season 2 of Mindhunter is testing my patience both with extraneous plot devices and being the most under-lit show I've tried to watch. I can barely see the expressions on the faces of the actors. That is all. Carry on.

Yes, I know my tweetstorm is numbered incorrectly. That's because Twitter thought it was more important to drive "top tweets" at me than to give me an edit function.
