  1. There are 2 weeks left to vote. Trump desperately needs to close the gap with women, particularly suburban women. His closing argument appears to be getting pwned by and then spitefully denigrating Lesley Stahl. 60 Minutes doesn’t air until Sunday.
  2. President Trump’s re-election campaign committee ended September with only $63.1 million in the bank even after canceling some television buys late last month, leaving him badly outmatched financially against Joseph R. Biden Jr. in the final stretch of the campaign. New filings with the Federal Election Commission showed the extent of Mr. Trump’s cash troubles, which caused the president to fly to California last Sunday for a fund-raiser with just over two weeks until Election Day. The president ended September with just over half as much money as he had at the beginning of the mon
  3. Ice Cube has responded to a clearly edited photo shared by Eric Trump showing himself and 50 Cent wearing Trump hats, despite such a headwear moment never having actually occurred. Cube quoted the tweet in question on Tuesday, adding only "N**** please..." as commentary. Shortly after Cube's response, the tweet—which was flagged by Twitter with a "manipulated media" warning—was removed. https://news.yahoo.com/ice-cube-responds-eric-trump-165116608.html
  4. I don't understand Cohn's take on the GA special. You don't allocate the undecideds based on presidential vote, you allocate EVERYONE by party. So if it's Warnock 32%, Loeffler 23%, Collins 17% and Lieberman 7%, you figure Warnock and Loeffler go to the runoff, and Warnock adds the Lieberman vote to get to a total of 39% and Loeffler adds the Collins vote to get to a total of 40%.
  5. If you do school the way you should be thinking about doing school, avoiding your cousins (and most other humans) will be easy. When I went to law school, locally, my boys said I might as well have gone out of state for 3 years and came back a lawyer.
  6. No kids is the time to do school. Just make sure you’ve got a plan. School is a means to an end, it’s not the destination (and it’s expensive).
  7. The Lincoln Project has enthusiastically burned bridges with the MAGA wing of the GOP, so they will all either retire on their book money or go back to work doing their thing for the Jeff Flakes of the world, who I disagree with on policy but can live with.
  8. Upscale neighborhood that is close to my firm’s Chicago office. Neighborhood-y, but just outside of Chicago’s urban core. Great restaurants and bars, plus a gigantic park for the kids. Close to everything Chicago has to offer, and I love Chicago when it’s not winter.
  9. Lincoln Park Chicago for me. More likely would be London. Some italian beach town for retirement. Not that Ive given it any thought.
  10. Trump spent all week after his bout with Covid trying to act young and vibrant, then throws it all away with one tweet admitting he watches 60 Minutes AND name dropping Bob ****ing Hope.
  11. https://electproject.github.io/Early-Vote-2020G/Early_Vote_Analysis_10_18.html Early Vote Analysis for Sunday, Oct. 18 Lots of early voting data at link (Dems are voting early in massive numbers, Repubs, not so much). Here’s the wrap up:
  12. https://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2020/10/16/opinion/donald-trump-worst-president.html?action=click&module=Opinion&pgtype=Homepage END OUR NATIONAL CRISIS The Case Against Donald Trump BY THE EDITORIAL BOARD
  13. Says a lot about Trump and his GOP enablers that this is now a thing that has to be done. https://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/biden-trump-campaign-disinformation/2020/10/18/99774228-0fdd-11eb-8074-0e943a91bf08_story.html Inside the ‘Malarkey Factory,’ Biden’s online war room
  14. It really should have a big impact. A big part of Greenfield's pitch during the whole campaign is that Ernst went to Washington to advocate for Iowa but, instead, she changed and became someone who cares more about the GOP than about Iowans. So for her to completely botch a question that someone who spends their time advocating for Iowans has to know (right after Greenfield nailed her answer to basically the same question), she was shown to be exactly what Greenfield has made her out to be. The worst political gaffes are the ones that prove you to be what your opponent says you a
  15. Greenfield should be focusing on Ernst's flub of crop prices at the debate. That has the potential to be a game changer and I'm looking forward to seeing some post-debate polling.
  16. I saw a sign in my neighborhood today that said “Biden & the woman that made Brett Kavanaugh cry.” I feel like those voters always have the economy thing as their baseline belief, but every time the actually have to see Trump on TV they are reminded how unfit he is.
  17. Not sure how anyone could vote for Hogan knowing that he feels it's acceptable to punt on difficult choices.
  18. Profiles in courage right here. https://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/larry-hogan-ronald-reagan/2020/10/16/ad14ecca-0f53-11eb-8074-0e943a91bf08_story.html?utm_source=twitter&utm_medium=social&utm_campaign=wp_local Also amazing that Republicans have to go back FORTY YEARS to find a broadly-acceptable write-in candidate.
  19. Welp, my team is ****ed now. Terry McLaurin has. No QB and CEH is gonna lose his role.
  20. If you do it with scissors you probably won’t ever have to do it again.
  21. I have a daughter, and this is ****ing devastating and then awesome. I have something in my eye.
