Now that the end of the first Democratic presidential debate has finally ended after two days and 20 candidates and five moderators, how can we possibly know who won? We can’t say who won, but we can predict who benefited.
The Dems presidential candidates were debating on day 2 of their first debate. It was Rock ‘Em, Sock ‘Em Robots for much of the debate. There is but one question, though, who won? Get the psysplainer for how to interpret the outcome of day 2’s debate!
Here’s another live-blog of the live-streaming of day 2 of the Democratic presidential primary debate. You know how it works: most recent additions are on top and the lower you go, the longer ago. Remember, Ye Olde Blogge is coming at you live from Paris, France — not […]
The first debate of Election 2020 is in the bag, or at least the first day and the first 10 are. So, who “won” from the first ten? How do we know?
It’s another American presidential election, which started more than 18 months before the actual election! American politics are crazy. But, the Dems are debating tonight and we all wanna know who won, who zung, who clung, who hung. I’ll be live-blogging the debate as it is live-streamed in Paris at 3:00 AM. Join me here for a snarky, sarcasticky, profaney good time as we all watch together!
With so many desperate issues swirling in the ether, air waves, and news cycle, I thought it useful to create a post with information on contacting your folks in Congress , so you can do your civic duty.
With so much at stake — literally the survival of our democracy — in the 2020 election, who will be the Dem candidate? Who will be the best candidate? How will the debates affect the race? I go over the criteria I’ll use to evaluate the first debate winner in the run up to live-blogging the live-streaming of the debates.
Our democracy is being gutted right before our very eyes. Every day there is a fresh new attack upon our sensibilities, democratic institutions, traditions, norms. Everyday there is a new government representative trying to present the unreasonable as reasonable, the irrational as rational, the untrue as truth, the immoral as moral. To keep a democracy, we have to be informed. That is the Great Civics Lesson
How do we resist the assault on our democracy? How do we prevent the further erosion of our democratic institutions and ideals? It is clear that the fascification of America is continuing unabated, so how do we resist? We use our democratic institutions to roll-back the spreading fascism.
Trump likes to boast that he is the very model of a modern stable genius. In other words, he thinks he knows everything, an expert in everything. He has absolute confidence in his thoughts and cannot learn from mistakes. But, he’s not an expert. He is the worst of the dilettantes. Experts have an entire arsenal of knowledge, experience, and tools at their disposal. Everyone else has a hammer and if hammering it don’t work, we’ll just carry on and hammer some more. Trump’s hammer is chaotic fighting over crises he’s conjured.
What the fuck is wrong with Mitch McConnell? Why is he so anti-American? Why is working against the Constitution? Why is he destroying the Senate? What the actual fuck?
How much does the “media narrative” affect the Democratic presidential primary? How do the things that the Ol’ Pussy Grabber saying about specific Democratic candidates, the candidates are saying about each other, or that the media is reporting about them? How can we resist these influences? Find out in this post.
Is the very model of a very stable genius an unstable influencer? A leadership style that relies on strong-arm tactics, intimidation, humiliation, and name calling is inherently unstable. The leader is not respected by peers, followers, or subordinates.
Being a woman and a candidate for major office is fraught with difficulties. Expectations, perceptions, and judgments are all very different for women than men. Elizabeth Warren may have some advantages that the other women for the Dem nomination don’t have.
Anger: The Key to White Male Privilege, Trump’s Success, and Threat to 2020 Female Presidential Candidates
Are you afraid that Trump will win AGAIN in 2020? Are you afraid that a female candidate can’t beat him? Do you scratch your ass and wonder where white male Republican privilege comes from? Well, the answer is the same for all of these questions: ANGER!
As unbelievable as it may seem, the pro-impeachment bunch is still a minority! Go figure! Ye Olde Blogge reminds us that the four factors of minority influence if deftly applied can change all of that.
Real live controlled psychological studies have demonstrated that angry reactions to accusations result in higher status being given to white men! Not so much to women and the not-whites (could be a band name, amirite?). What does that tell us about the Ol’ Pussy Grabber’s strategy for resisting Nancy Pelosi’s attempts to probe him?
