I guess it depends on the district? There are certainly places where an AOC-level progressive would never get anywhere near the nomination. In a 2-party system we effectively have to choose between what is served up, and IMHO we need to get as progressive as possible. If the choice is between this version of the Blue Dog and a literal Nazi, I guess I hold my nose and vote blue. In the last election, I did not think of it as voting “for” Hillary, so much as voting “against” Il Douche.
Yup: there will be dancing in the streets in the REST of the Chicagoland area when Lipinski goes, but for now, he really is the best option available for that district.
It ain’t called the Redneck Riviera for nothing. Assholes.
"Law enforcement intelligence analysts have identified credible threats of violence surrounding the event, along with white nationalist rhetoric and plans by out-of-state militia groups to attend. "

“People have strong opinions about the Confederate flag and we had to take the public opinion about that symbol into account,” said Price. “But we’re not erasing Confederate history from inside those walls. We intend to continue to tell the story of Confederate medical innovations and Union medical innovations as long as we can.”
One of the few times a rebranding actually improves the final product. The blue/red/gray of the shield nicely hints at the context of the war through the use of the two sides’ uniform colors without explicitly surfacing the flags themselves, and it’s way less visually busy than the old one. It’s also actually more inclusive toward the Confederacy, since the “Confederate” flag wasn’t the flag of the entire rebellion anyway.
Wrestling with positive advancements made by genuinely terrible movements is always difficult. It’s worth preserving that history without unintentionally advancing the broader terrible ideology that precipitated them, so kudos to the NMCWM for recognizing that distinction.
“Under grilling by Fox News?” What timeline have we slipped into now???
Too bad that they messed up the middle part of the logo.
Oh wait, the staff of the God of thieves, American healthcare. Carry on…
Hemmer and Smith will be unemployed any moment now…
“The charges announced Thursday grew from an investigation of a collection of online extremists who refer to themselves as “the Base,” which is the English translation of al-Qaeda.”
Kellyanne’s been so far and so long up Donny’s ass, I think she’s secretly a tapeworm.
Except tapeworms serve an important ecological purpose…
Hilarious interview on NPR with one of the organizers of this rally. He claims “The Governor declares a state of emergency because of threats and then says we have to be unarmed! What kind of sense does that make?” Dude, the threat you are afraid of? IT IS YOU!!! The lack of understanding is just monumental.
Do we need to discuss the Trump-inspiring asshole bear in the room?
