Democracy Ain't Beanbag

Mar
14

Jonathan Chait:

"But the whole premise of democracy is that rules need to be applied in every case without regard to the merit of the underlying cause to which it is attached. If you defend the morality of a tactic against Trump, then you should be prepared to defend its morality against any candidate. Now imagine that right-wing protesters had set out to disrupt Barack Obama’s speeches in 2008. If you’re not okay with that scenario, you should not be okay with protesters doing it to Trump."

"I do not agree with what you have to say, but I'll defend to the death your right to say it."

This isn't whining

Words He Will Regret

Jan

Oh, oh! Speaker of the House Paul Ryan reacting to Obama's veto of the GOPer bill to repeal Obamacare (link):

“We have shown now that there is a clear path to repealing Obamacare without 60 votes in the Senate. So, next year, if we’re sending this bill to a Republican president, it will get signed into law,” Ryan continued.

Yeah, that's a real incentive to vote for a "Republican president". I wouldn't be surprised if the DNC had it already in a 30-second spot in preparation for next year.

Campaign Self-Destruct

Dec
28

I'm with BooMan and Paul Campos in my reaction to "Datagate". Like many, I'm pretty much on the fence as far as primary candidate is concerned. For that reason, I pretty much agree with this comment by Melissa McEwan in reaction to the lawsuit by the Sanders Campaign against the DNC:

Wow. I really don't think that's a good strategy. It will play well with a lot of folks who are already Sanders supporters for sure, but, for people who are still on the fence, and who are looking at the details of this thing and assessing what it says about Sanders campaign and leadership style, I don't think that approach will be well received.
