The Queen of Bothsiderism

Sep
17

Sorry to hear of the passing of Cokie Roberts. Honestly the biggest impression she made on me was the bothsiderism of her reporting and the upset reaction of progressive blogs throughout the aughts and teens. (See Cokie's Law or DailyKos.com.)

Leave What?

Jul

Trump's totally confused. If you're not happy with how things are going, you don’t leave this country -- you take it over (through something called ‘popular sovereignty’). Dude's gonna find out soon enough.

11

Interesting endorsement for alderman (44th Ward) coming out of the Chicago Sun-Times. They begin:

What matters most in this election is to preserve a political counterweight to the Ricketts family, owners of the Chicago Cubs, as they continue their aggressive redevelopment of Wrigley Field and nearby streets.

They then go on to endorse the incumbent, Tom Tunney, pretty much for the same reason I'm voting for him (i.e. "preserve a political counterweight"). Ditto for the Trib.
