Never wrestle a pig in its own sty because you'll get covered with pigshit and the pig will love it.

I admire Elizabeth Warren for her stance on Fox News. I think appearing on that network is a losing strategy because most of their viewers are forever lost in the Fox fantasy world, and even those few sheep who might be persuaded will be herded back into the fold by the lies that are certain to follow any "town hall" broadcast.

I'd be interested in knowing which other Democratic candidates have appeared or plan to appear on that network. Is there a list somewhere?

God, I hate Fox News!

The Fox News site features a photo of Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib with a caption underneath saying:

House Republican leaders are calling on Speaker Pelosi to 'take action' against Democrat Rep. Rashida Tlaib for saying that thinking about the Holocaust gives her a 'calming feeling'; Peter Doocy has the details from Washington.

But as the Fox News article itself reveals, she didn't mean that the Holocaust gives her a "calming feeling", as if she somehow approved of it. Her comment was actually about the displacement of Palestinians after the war:

"There’s always kind of a calming feeling, I tell folks, when I think of the Holocaust, and the tragedy of the Holocaust, and the fact that it was my ancestors — Palestinians — who lost their land and some lost their lives, their livelihood, their human dignity, their existence in many ways, have been wiped out, and some people's passports," Tlaib said on the podcast's most recent episode, published Friday. "And, just all of it was in the name of trying to create a safe haven for Jews, post-the Holocaust, post-the tragedy and the horrific persecution of Jews across the world at that time. And, I love the fact that it was my ancestors that provided that, right, in many ways, but they did it in a way that took their human dignity away and it was forced on them."

I just switched from "undecided" to Kamala Harris.

Someday a woman will be president, and I figure it's about that time.

I think Speaker Pelosi is correct with her “Own the center left, own the mainstream” advice, and among the top woman candidates that rules out Elizabeth Warren, whose platform may or may not be desirable, but the Robin Hood-like idea to rob from the rich and give to the poor seems unlikely to sell and is probably unrealistic. That leaves Amy Klobuchar and Kamala Harris. Kamala Harris is my first choice and Amy Klobuchar is my second.
