Voted Sanders Today.

Ohio early voting was crowded.

Stores cleaned out of some items: TP, cleaners, bread, flour.

News and election resource list. Can you add to it?


As we roll into another election season and a time of crisis, Iíd like to find any useful election news or other relevant resources you may have come across. A few of my favorites include:

Corona Virus Tracker -
https://gisanddata.maps.arcgis.com/apps/opsdashboard/index.html#/bda7594740fd40299423467b48e9ecf6

Electoral-vite.com - https://electoral-vote.com/ This site offers analysis,news, and statistics.

FiveThirtyEight - https://fivethirtyeight.com/ This is Nate Silverís data heavy statistics and analysis site.

Media Matters - https://www.mediamatters.org/ This site turns its eye on the media and is a great source for calling out the often uncritical and occasionally outright lying news coverage.

Crooks and Liars - https://crooksandliars.com/ This is a snarkier, more video-heavy site analyzing coverage similar to Media Matters above.

Open Secrets - https://www.opensecrets.org/ A source for statistics and details on political donations. I find it is a great way to sniff out Republican donors and ďfakeĒ liberals who will crop up to claim support for Trump.

Wonkette - https://www.wonkette.com/ A joyfully snark-laden source for left-leaning political news.

Alternet.org - https://www.alternet.org/ A good source for progressive political opinion and news.

Crooked Media - https://crooked.com/ A source for liberal news and analysis from former Obama staffers. Their podcasts, especially Pod Save America and Pod Save the World are excellent.

Al Franken Podcast - https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/the-al-franken-podcast/id1462195742 Itís just a joy to hear his voice again.

MSNBC Livestream - https://livenewschat.eu/politics/

Democracy Now - https://www.democracynow.org/ A wonderful source for news the media ignores and far-left political opinion.

Democratic underground is a great site for news and comment. Are there any similar sites worth following?

Anybody know of a good site to survey the rightwing POV without having to wade through three or four sites to find the gamut of bulshit over there? Iím thinking Fox News, but I donít know if there might not be a better aggregator out there. Maybe Real Clear Politics?

What are you reading, watching and listening to?

So tomorrow's Friday news dump...

If I had bad news, tomorrow would be a great day to announce it.

I just switched to undecided.

I'm on the fence.

Biden sounded more presidential.

We heard both Bernie and Joe speak on the virus.

Both did better than Trump.
Biden did better than Bernie.

The debate should be interesting

"It's about the same as the flu," Trumps says at one point.

My god, when this guy talks, we get less safe.
