Warren is the Anointed One. Is there a Native American ceremony to make it official?
It's too late in the year for the green corn dance... She should just make a pot of peyote tea and call it a night.

Joe Biden said:

I would eliminate the capital gains tax -- I would raise the capital gains tax to the highest rate, of 39.5 percent.
Ok what am I missing here? Am I reading this correctly - Biden wants it both ways?

I'm not sure Biden is at all sure as to what he wants. Without a teleprompter to keep his lines straight he's just improvising as best he can.

The "but one" - Tulsi Gabbard - is run out of the party (a sad commentary given she's the coolest of the kids on stage).
Yesterday I was talking about classic liberals vs. progressives - Tulsi is a classic liberal and there's no place for her in the Democrat Party anymore. They're doubling down on Socialism and there's no coming back now.

If the whole Party weren't ****ing crazy she'd have been a shoo in and she could have given Trump a race.

This was Biden's "I voted for it before I voted against it" line.

He's either so smart that his mouth can't keep up with his brain, and he comes out in half thoughts that sound crazy and disjointed, or, he's on the verge of dementia and his thoughts come out in ways that sound crazy and disjointed because they are.

I'm leaning toward the latter.

She's not quite JFK with the more conservative concepts, military service, good looks, and great stage presence. But, she's not too far, either.

She also tried to challenge Warren last night, and was literally talked over by CNN because they won't stand for someone challenging Warren who actually has the service to do so.

Tulsi isn't batshit crazy so they don't want her. The DNC and their media minions have been trying to shut her out since Day 1. They give her no publicity, put no money behind her, and tried to keep her out of the debates as well. Of course....who was that, Erin Burnett?...shut her down. The only candidate who got less time than Tulsi was Tom Steyer.

Well, Trump may be President, but he isn't God....

I don't even know what channel it was on, just that it must have been on cable because I couldn't find it on any of the regular stations that we get at this RV park.

I know Beta doubled down on having cops kick in our doors and forcibly confiscate our guns, but haven't heard much else about it.
Speaking of the debate, Byron York had an interesting take regarding the Dem candidates support for impeachment. The entire piece is worth reading, but I thought this important (the closing paragraph):
Impeachment won't go away in the next Democratic debate or the one after that. If House Democrats move forward, one of the candidates — Gabbard — will have to vote on articles of impeachment. And if that happens, five candidates — Warren, Sanders, Booker, Harris, and Klobuchar — will have to vote in a Senate trial. And that means the concerns some of them voiced Tuesday night will be around for quite a while.

Here's Scott Adams' podcast notes (and link) from this morning's post (re: debate and other things):

Worth taking a look at the notes (just a click and 2 mins of your time). Interesting, re: what was said and more importantly, what was not said.

Adams thinks CNN (by virtue of the age statement) is angling for "not the top three." So that would mean Harris and Buttigieg. He thinks that will be the Dem ticket (Harris for Prez, Buttigieg for VP).

In other news, 3/4 of The Squad (the more "notable" of the four) has endorsed Bernie Sanders. Who's surprised?


Let's add this:

Great read, if only for a summary of the minutes given to each candidate.

She seems to me to be the only alleged adult on the stage; the only one capable of doing a Willie-Jeff type pivot to center. Having said that, they'd surely do to Madam President Gabbard the same thing they're doing to President Trump.
