Yes, but also Well I think that for a broad subset of the current Team Red coalition, the stupid is not so much natural as it is cultivated with fundamentally malevolent intent. This.

So, I know I probably missed a lot, and catching up would be such a herculean task that trying to conceptualize ever having a large block of time to accomplish it would daunt the most undaunted debutantes, but has anyone floated the idea that Trump's making this worse on purpose in order to foment a...

Re: Voting methodologies

Proposition:

Change the primary order of states every cycle like a draft order, ranked by smallest margin of victory from the previous general. If it were done this year, it'd be :

MI 0.3%
NH 0.4%
WI 1%
PA 1.2%
FL 1.2%
MN 1.5%
NV 2.4%
ME 2.7%
NC 3.8%
AZ 3.9%

Re: And Then There Were Four (The Impeachment Thread)

There seems to be a consensus among the professional talker classes that the new Democratic reps who flipped red districts in 2018 need to distance themselves from impeachment talk, in part because of their organizational inertia toward relying on past voting patterns (Cook's Report, et al).
