The cops are right-wing thugs, which is why

conservatives are so enabling and supportive of them.

This thug cop should be in jail for attempted murder.

Change will only come when the police unions are broken, otherwise this stuff will continue.

He talks big. If FL, AZ, OH or NC fall

into Biden's column on election night it's all over for the obese Orange clown. The media narrative will be 'the Biden blowout is materializing'... etc etc. Trump is a coward and will crawl away meekly.

Agree, reminds me of the Hillary 'coal' moment.

Biden had a strong debate, but his 'oil' moment was one that could easily be spun the wrong way.

The fracking issue Biden explained properly and won't hurt him.

But the oil thing came across wrong because Trump was interrupting and wouldn't let Biden finish.

Biden must explain that there will be a gradual transition to clean energy and the workers in those industries will also be transitioned, and it will be beneficial economicially overall.

Agree. Most men and some women masturbate.

It's the middle of a pandemic and people are (a) stressed out (b) fumbling with technology and (c) working at home. Mix all of those together and you get unfortunate events like what happened. Those who think Toobin is the only one who takes a break to watch some pr0n and spank the monkey - are seriously naive or just hypocrites. Wonder why his employer had to reveal this to the public, it's not like he intended to hurt anyone.

A condition of entry into any secular country should be

that the entrant must accept the conditions of secularism and freedom of expression, where any/all religions and beliefs are open to being critiqued and even mocked. Fragility is not compatible with democracy.

The founders never intended a minoritarian system.

They never could've foreseen the outsized role the Senate and the judiciary would have on issues of national importance, or how lopsided population-wise the states would become.

Rat-faced Mike Lee from a small religious state, as 1 of 100 senators, gets to tell the rest of the country 'we are not a democracy' while installing his RW handmaid on the Supreme Court for life.

Basically what we have is taxation without representation, where a retrograde minority sets the agenda.

PA is clearly the most important state.

Newsweek: If We Don't Win in Pennsylvania, 'We Are So Screwed,' Biden Insider Says
The tipping point, sources within the campaign say, was a September 26 ABC News/Washington Post poll showing much softer support among the state's Biden voters than among those backing Trump. Echoing the campaign's own disquieting internal data, the survey found that, despite an overall nine-point lead for the former VP, only 51 percent of Biden backers were "very enthusiastic" about their candidate vs. 71 percent of those who supported Trump. That "rang the alarm," a top Biden insider says.

It's a state with the mail-in voting uncertaintly, the registration of white rural voters being higher, etc. But we did win recent statewide races there, and are running a strong campaign (Lincoln Project running tough ads) there this time in a way that we did not last time. Biden was also born in PA and was the longtime Senator from a neighboring state.

But clearly there is something going on in the Sunbelt (AZ, TX, GA, NC). I could see a scenario where we win some of those states and for some crazy reason lose PA even though 538's 'snake' would indicate otherwise.

I just have a feeling Texas is going to shock the world. Biden is polling closer in TX than Trump polled in the Midwest last time. If there is a polling error in Biden's favor he could easily win Texas.

Joe is teflon in a sense.

Everyone knows Joe and has a good sense of who he is, which is simple but decent guy - and there is very little if anything that can change that.

The Biden-Trump head-to-head polls have been pretty steady for about a year now even before Joe became the nominee, which is remarkable. It says that voters already wanted to get rid of Trump even before Covid - and if given someone they trust and know well like Joe they would make the change in a second.

+1. Palmer is entertaining and helps keeps morale up.

He also fights back against RW social media narratives. His site and sites like Rawstory are not 'hard news' but really like our version of Drudge.

Terrible. This simply hands Graham and Senate Repubs

in close races a commercial they can use to show themselves as 'bipartisan'.

DiFi, what exactly has Grahman and the GOP done to show they are operating in good faith? They stole Garland's seat and are now stealing RBG's seat that should be filled by Biden. We are going to have a 6-3 hard right Supreme Court and this is what our Dem leaders do to fight for us? These hearings were a sham and even Kamala Harris said so.

Dems are supposed to be the party that stands in defense of those who have been historically left out. This is exactly why younger voters and PoC often feel alienated from the party.
