We got the Obamas, Beyonce and Jay Z, they got ... well ... Never mind ...


White privilege personified


DNC Chair apologizes to black voters

“We took too many people for granted,” Perez continued, “and African Americans—our most loyal constituency—we all too frequently took for granted. That is a shame on us, folks, and for that I apologize. And for that I say, it will never happen again!”


White House and GOP pull judicial nomination after Tim Scott raises concerns


I was a big fan, but Ocasio-Cortez is starting to get on my nerves.

I wasn't happy to hear she was going in to Kansas with Bernie Sanders to campaign against Lacy Clay, a progressive CBC member, but I'm furious that she's campaigning against Sharice Davids, a progressive gay, Native American woman.

I expect this from Sanders, but Ocasio-Cortez really needs to get some better advice and chill.


The press STILL has not admitted their complicity in the Russian cyberattacks.

This point needs to be made over and over and over.


"White Privilege" clarified:



White privilege doesn't mean your life hasn't been hard.

NBC: It's Brett Kavanaugh


Please stop calling Dems "weak" because we don't have many options for stopping Supreme Court nomine

This is not a sign of weakness. It’s arithmetic. We just don’t have the numbers. And we don’t have the White House.

And we don’t have the numbers because too many of us decided to “teach Obama a lesson” by not voting in 2010 and 2014, thereby paving the way for Republicans to take majority control of the Senate.

We don’t have the White House because, while Republicans saw the federal courts as so all-important they were willing to stand by the most corrupt, hateful, unfit and unqualified presidential candidate in history, too many Democrats didn’t think the federal courts were important to vote for a candidate they saw as less than perfect (“She WAS a flawed candidate, after all ...”).

It was not a failure of leadership or our party’s “weakness” that put us in this situation.
