Bill Maher embarrasses himself by inviting dark web peddling podcasters on his show

I get that he wants ratings but the fact that he was pushing the wuhan lab theory which was widely discredited by scientists.

Nice 60 minutes video on rising Healthcare costs feating HHS Secretary nominee Xavier Becerra

It's no wonder Republican Senators are all up in arms over Becerra. I mean how dare the guy go after corrupt Hospital monopolies like Sutter Health.

Well written CNN opinion piece highlights just how badly Trump has divided friends and families.

It kind of hits home for me as my own mother and some siblings are a huge Trump lovers. We still get along fine but I haven't been invited to Thanksgiving dinner since 2016 and we don't mingle as much as we once did. Trump is a major cancer to American society on so many levels. The sooner he leaves office, the better.

My Biden cabinet picks

I had a thread a few months back that somehow got deleted but now that it's official, I've updated my list of possible candidates. I realize some of these are long shots.



Chief of Staff: Ron Klain

That's all I can think of for now.







Pitsbugh-Post Gazette edorsement of Trump is just laughingly bad

This was apparently their 1st endorsement of a Republican Presidential candidate since 1972. Their conclusion is basically, yeah we know Trump is a jerk and imbecile but the economy was doing great before Covid and he kept all his promises (cough..build the wall..healthcare...cough cough). They can't support Biden cause he's gonna raise taxes and he's too old and won't make it through his first term but Trump is old too but hey he's got Pence to fall back on. Really guys?

I personally had never heard of this newspaper but some of my Republican friends were all excited about it this morning. Hopefully, voters in the Pittsburgh area don't listen to these idiots.

I wish these media personalities would get over their 2016 PTSD anxiety

You got S.E Cupp on CNN posting a video inaccurately stating how Hillary had double digit lead at this stage in the election and then Michael Moore saying the polls are wrong because these "shy Trump voters" are skewing the numbers because they don't trust the deep state.

What these people forget is the majority of polls taken just before the election were within the margin of error so even if they weren't dead on accurate, they were fairly close. Of course anything is possible and Trump could still win but people need to stop trying to make the flawed case that we're in the same situation as we were in 2016. No, we are not.

After watching Jonathan Swift expose Ted Cruz's hypocrisy

I'm starting to be convinced that NBC needs to fire Chuck Todd and give this guy the Meet The Press gig. He's one the of the few interviewers I've seen who didn't let Trump push him around simply by asking relevant follow up questions.

Trump looked really pissed after the debate

No attempt at being happy to see Melania and no waving to the Bidens. Looked like he mumbled “good job” at the moderator and then stormed off.

Wolf Blitzer should know better than to get Pelosi angry

Blitzer was trying to make Pelosi as the villain for not taking Trump's offer on the Stimulus deal and Nancy was having none of it.

So the C-Span phonecall guy is moderating the 2nd debate.

I think Steve Sculley will do better than Chris Wallace but unless both campaigns agree to crack down on enforcing the rules, it's just going to be another trainwreck with Trump kicking and screaming at will.
