The Electoral College Must Go
20 Mar 2019

The Electoral College Must Go

While I’m far from deciding on a Democratic candidate, I agree with Senator Elizabeth Warren in her support for “getting rid of the electoral college,” and having the presidency decided by a national popular vote.  Per Matthew Dowd’s ABC NEWS article, Warren was “quickly attacked by many who think this is a “radical idea.” Yet that assessment is incorrect.  Per a new CBS News poll, about...

Respecting the Women on Whose Shoulders You Stand

Congresswoman Shirley Chisholm made history by running for president in 1972, becoming the first woman to win a non-binding presidential primary in New Jersey.  She said: “I’ve always met more discrimination being a woman than being black…” and “The emotional, sexual, and psychological stereotyping of females begins when the doctor says: “It’s a girl.” Shirley Chisholm was a trailblazer who made it easier for Senators...

Sexism Isn’t About THAT Woman—But ALL Women

Sexist attacks are daily lobbed at Kamala Harris, Nancy Pelosi, Elizabeth Warren, Kirsten Gillibrand and Amy Klobuchar over social media and, of course, by the pundit class on mainstream media. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi spanked Trump hard on his horrid shutdown, reminding us how fierce she is at holding together her Parties’ coalition, rendering foolish anyone who called for “new blood” in opposing her return...

Our Midterm Votes Are Vital–Being Distracted Is Not

  Three weeks from today, we have a very important date with the voting booth.  In the meantime, we can talk to friends and neighbors about the issues of vital concern to Americans,  like health care, preserving pre-existing conditions protections, protecting Social Security and Medicare from unfair cuts, correcting the GOP Tax Scam, taking action on climate change, as well as restoring much needed oversight...

Drowning In Ink By The Barrel — Reporters Who Stifle Criticism

New York Times‘  reporter Maggie Haberman got backlash for her recent op-ed decrying a lack of civility on Twitter, declaring she was stepping away from it as a result.  No doubt social media can be cruel, particularly for women. But we must separate facts from a self-serving or defensive posture in this case.  Did Ms. Haberman mention her habit of blocking those who offer respectful...

The Shame in White Male Savior Syndrome

The Shame in White Male Savior Syndrome

Shame on every man from NBC’s Chuck Todd and Joe Scarborough, CNN’s Jake Tapper, Vox’s Ezra Klein, Rep. Trey Gowdy, former FBI Director Jim Comey, to Steve Schmidt to Senator Bernie Sanders and yes, even, Senator John McCain.  Every single one did nothing but bash Hillary Clinton, working to tank her poll numbers and depress her voters in the run-up to the 2016 election. All are...

Stop Pretending There’s a Liberal Media Bias

Stop Pretending There’s a Liberal Media Bias

Beware anyone trying to tell you that there is a liberal media bias on major news programs. On Sunday’s State of the Union, CNN’s Jake Tapper featured none other than the cantankerous, ego-driven and relatively unaccomplished Senator Bernie Sanders. He beats up more DEMS than GOP and has been nicer to Trump than he was to Hillary.  Sanders will be 79 in 2020 is talking...

The Truth about Michelle Wolf’s White House Correspondence Dinner Roast

The Truth about Michelle Wolf’s White House Correspondence Dinner Roast

Press Corps’ hand-wringing over comedienne Michelle Wolf’s “caustic” performance at the White House Correspondents Dinner Saturday night misses the point.  Wolf aimed a harsh spotlight at their failures as journalists.  Instead of daily contesting the lies of the Trump Administration – and that of Press Secretary Sanders – many anchors and pundits instead opt for access, normalizing an administration that glorifies the worst in us,...

Women Candidates Are Stronger When They Fight Sexism

Women Candidates Are Stronger When They Fight Sexism

In Jonathan Chait’s New York Intelligencer article cautioning women “not to play the victim card” when running as 2020 presidential candidates, doesn’t he see that a man telling a woman how she should present herself to the American people is in itself sexist? Why does he get to instruct her?  What white male has ever had to deal with gender issues on the national stage? ...

Comey’s Ego

It never ceases to amaze the lengths to which reporters, pundits, even voters will go to defend or excuse what former FBI Director Jim Comey did to help Trump realize the *presidency*.  His self-serving explanations, designed to resurrect his reputation just in time for his book tour, offered in his 60 Minutes and ABC’s 20/20 interviews ring hollow.  Comey found it acceptable to break protocol...
