Seriously, the resistance to a woman is odd. I see it among my liberal friends even. One might think no woman had eve left the home. People need to get out more.

In December, he stated he'd be open to a Republican Vice President.

So...Susan Collins or Sarah Palin?

Or maybe Michele Bachmann?

She's easily replaced by possibly an even more progressive candidate for her senate seat.

I'm just waiting for the inevitable photo where Biden has one arm slung around his wife's waist and one around his running mate's and has the most gigantic "I'm getting LAID"  shiat grin on his face like 1980s Trump at a Epstein party.

Is Nancy Reagan still around, she did a good job running the country back in the 80's.

No caucuses, all on the same day, and mail-in option for every state. Just to start.

He said Republican, not "blindingly incompetent."

She's much better as an AG that VP.

AG's actually have more significant power than a VP does in terms of authority, unless Biden wants his VP to be a Cheney style figure.

I have a theory. We all know that Fragile Male Egos (FME's)/the He-Man Woman-Haters Club vote. We also know that they make up a not-insignificant portion of the electorate. In order to court their vote to get the policies we need, there's gotta be a little give.

Bernie represents radical change in the form of social programs.

Liz represents too much radical change, that being both a woman and championing the same-- or similar-- social programs that Bernie does.

It makes sense, knowing the attitudes out there, to rest the laurels on Bernie for this go-around. Once they get a taste of that sweet sweet socialism and decide its not so bad, they will be more open to the idea of a woman running on the same ideas. This would open the door for Liz, which will open the door for someone such as AOC, so on and so forth.

When people are actively being conditioned to resist change, you have to find the path of least resistance in order to achieve the change you're looking for. Sure, Bernie isnt what i would imagine most progressives would see as the physical embodiment of their ideal candidate. But admit it, if we shot for the ideal they wouldn't stand a chance. Not right now.

Those are thing we should do because the November election will be canceled? Those read as things we should do just because they're good ideas.

I'm asking why the conspiracy theory of the canceled election has any bearing on the primaries.

Sarah Palin.



The other night, I decided to watch some really bad but popular TV.  I never watch Dancing with the Stars, American Idol, or show of that ilk, but in an attempt to not be so "snobby", I decided to watch the Mystery Singer (or whatever it's called) when I was too lazy to find the remote.

The "mystery singer" voted off that night was revealed to be Sarah Palin.  I wasn't shocked because at the end of the day, this show is definitely her speed.  If she were some B-list celeb, she would have definitely been on that show as a given.  However, she wasn't a B-list celeb, she was actually a governor of a state and a presidential candidate.  Someone else lamented out on another thread that our country is at such a low ebb.  We've been at that ebb for at least 20 years, I think.

Either candidate would be wise to pick Warren ad their running mate, so I'm not sure Joe has an advantage in this regard.

If He was smart , Warren would be a very good choice for him .. But that's just my opinion ..

I'm not following a conspiracy theory. I'm making a projection. No one will be able to leave their homes. How do you have an election?
