• Well thank you for making me read Dowd after an eight year hiatus. I can happily report I didn't need to gouge my eyes out.

      Clinton never met her crucial challenge: to both celebrate multiculturalism and also cushion the backlash against the celebration.

    • Don't knock it. it's a great idea that just needs a few tweaks.

      Just make it horizontal instead of vertical.

      Locate it near cities near the border, like Tijuana, instead of *at* the border.

      Pay the Mexicans to build it, work it and maintain it so they stay there instead...

    • Furthermore...

      "Far-right Republicans..have their eyes on Mr. Heller.......a group ...is preparing a seven- figure ad campaign

      against the senator" NYT June 25.

      Which will be effective. 

       

    • It needs to appeal. Full stop. 

      It needs to do a more professional job of presenting its existing positions.  Which would appeal to sufficient

      Anumber of voters in the white working class, the black working class, all other color working class,  the white middle class, the black...

    • The wall would be vertical, I presume, which is kinda the wrong angle for an efficient suntan. You could do better with a few flat horizontal football fields north of the border, and then, as you note, would be a lot better to have those football fields near Tucson or similar, not coyote springs...

      [Weird pro-Trump website - pp]

    • It seems like many make the same presumption. I was waiting for some article debunking his solar panel wall and no one wrote much about it on any of the sites I read.

      I'm lucky here, or it's a trade off. Not enough solar power to run an air conditioner but so far out in the country that...

    • What hit me about your post was that I have gotten to the point where I don't even ponder anymore about the reality of something Trump says, as you have here, rather, I just presume it is silly or stupid.

      Thanks for pointing out what you did, not being very scientifically minded...

    • Still brutally hot here, 107 today. So I thought I'd add to this blog. One reason I found Trump's solar panel lined border wall so interesting is it illustrates so well the way he thinks and acts. He's so proud of this idea. He came up with it himself and brags about it often most recently at...

    • I wonder to what extent  Labour's above- expectations performance reflected  Corbyn's campaigning  vs the

      extent to which it reflected Labour voters increased enthusiasm  as a result  of choosing Corbyn and seeing their choice honored.

       

    • Thank you!

    • p.s. I am glad to see the Times piece addressing Medicaid and nursing home coverage, as I think this could turn a lot of people who would normally be supportive against what the GOP was doing if they knew and understood. Most people don't realize it until they have to deal with a loved one on...

    • The Guardian UK reported Corbyn's connection here. And it was widely reported in half a dozen other papers.

      I don't think Corbyn supported the 1/2 million pound scam, that he...

    • WaPo just published two headline stories:

    • Your comment sounds just like the many you have made about Sanders. Obey has answered you much better than I would have been able to but one point remains that strikes me as worth addressing.

    • The reference to polls, four words total, is a very small part of the case that Swanson is making.  

      I agree with your use of scare quotes around the word "defense". Imagine if the following had been an important part of Hillary Clinton's and the Democratic Party's political positioning...

    • interesting piece! Nicely done!

    • I detect sarcastic undertones when I read your "interesting". ;0)

      I would be inclined to agree with your doubts, if that is what they are. But he vastly outperformed my expectations in the election and in each of his two leadership fights. And although you seem to assume May was an easy...

    • No doubt May is an easy target. 

      Is there an institution Corbyn thinks is not flawed?

      It would be interesting to see him at #10.
