Poll

When I consider the polls, I think that

Kid is right and the majority of national polls understate Trump's strength.
- 2 (25%)
Kid is wrong; the majority of national polls have Biden's strength about right.
- 2 (25%)
the polls are irrelevant and therefore so is Kid.
- 4 (50%)

Donald sat down with an Aussie journalist to discuss
Covid / Pandemic.
If he'd asked me, I would've told him not to do it.
Not to do it, or give interviews to anyone...not to do Twitter either....but rather to govern by media release only.
No debating either.
Just releasing policy statements / promises for re-election.

Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., defended the work of federal officers in Portland.

"If we had done nothing, what would have happened to the courthouse, Mr. Cuccinelli, in Portland?" Graham asked.

Cuccinelli responded:  "That courthouse wouldn't be there."

"So I challenge anyone on the other side to say differently," Graham said. "If we hadn't intervened they'd have burned the god--n thing down

Because that is what happened at protests elsewhere?
Because that is what happened when they left?
And that was prevented by making unconstitutional arrests, and beating and tear gassing journalists and medics?
And all the other places that Trump announced he was sending Federal Police to uninvited, those places are burning down too?

Graham is a puppet. And anyone who believes his lies without question, and the lies of people who were installed in their position without Congressional consent, is a puppet too.

He'd have been dead in the water, worse off than he is, had he tried that approach.

But... if he could have stayed off Twitter, he would not be the man he is, Bambi. It would be like asking him not to lie. And why, pray tell, have you not included that advice to him?!

For example, Biden has answered questions from the press just twice this summer, and the media obliged him with softball questions. It is notable that Chris Wallace of Fox News, a notoriously tough interview, recently grilled President Trump on his Sunday show, and then followed with an invitation to Biden that was promptly rejected.

GOP Senate seat in Kansas is safe.

Kobach, who Trump endorsed in 2018,  defeated in primary.   You're right,  rejecting the most Trumpian choice was the smart move for KS GOP.   The Senate seat will still be close however.   Kansas has been blueing the past few years.  And Marshall said some unfortunate things in 2017 about the Medicaid expansion that may prove to be baggage right now.

"It is historic that this year, of all years, we're sending a Black, working-class single mother, who has been fighting for Black lives since Ferguson, all the way to the halls of Congress," she said in her victory speech.       - Cori Bush

The look is the stupid ass part of it, Kid.

"Yes, it seems pretty likely. I hate to say it, but if we have a teacher with an unknown underlying condition then they will be vulnerable and despite our best precautions there is a good chance that such an individual might die.

"We know that we won't be perfect, that we won't have any kids or teachers catch the virus. It would be naive to claim otherwise. Our goal is to minimize it, while returning the schools to operation."

You prefer dishonesty, as usual.
