As tempting as it is to follow Kanye West down his rabbit hole, the best way to treat his latest pronouncement is as a late-summer diversion rather than a serious presidential campaign, writes

obviously there's a bunch people on twitter and some of the instant reaction was really good and helpful i'm not gonna dissect it all -- just read the piece, it'll all make sense

i already shared some of my kanye west thoughts here, but i've got a more full, spelled out, evidenced version here: basically a lot of the instant reaction you might have seen over the weekend starts to wobble when you think it through, look at data etc

i mean trump is potus so anything is possible, obligatory cautionary notes, etc etc etc but seems like the political world can collectively hold off on lighting its hair on fire until we see if this is real, how it polls etc

some kanye thoughts -seems like he's not doing basic paperwork -not clear that he'd only draw young af am men based on fav polls, general impression of his fanbase -weird to watch 2020 d primary, then assume af am voters automatically go to af am candidate -partisanship exists

true! and haha yeah -- had to take some specific measures (log off twitter and stay off, delete work email from my phone, etc.). didn't get me all the way to a blackout, but close!

my guess is that if Ds continue to move left (which i think they will, but a lot in the short term depends on how nov shakes out), the process will look a little boring? retirees getting replaced by progs, sitting pols preemptively moving left to avoid challengers etc

like one underappreciated part of the whole Tea Party thing was that conservative insurgents won primaries in open seats, sometimes won competitive seats after (and sometimes threw winnable seats) it wasn't all dave brat and eric cantor

New piece about NY primaries, KY-SEN, how parties move ideologically. basic ideas: primary challenges are exciting to watch, but don't often work the churn of people retiring, new people entering + sitting pols adapting to voters drive more of the shift
