      The home team fans are at home, these games no longer matter, and it’s probably better for the team to lose than it is to win.  It must be December in Washington.  Welcome to week 15!

      There are two camps for Redskins fans at this time of year.  Those that want to tank and those that want to win.  If this describes you, I want you to know something important. You’re wrong.  You should probably feel bad about it too, but that’s your business.  The right way to go about this, is simply to embrace the double think.  
       
      Before and after the game it’s perfectly reasonable to acknowledge that losing has its advantages.  It does and it is undeniable.  Afterall we could be talking about the difference between Chase Young being in a Redskins uniform, or not.  What we need for that to happen is simple.  Redskins lose out.  Giants beat the Dolphins and Redskins.  Dolphins beat the Bengals.  All of these things are perfectly reasonable outcomes.  We’re that close to having an elite pass rusher.   
       
      Before that happens, we have a game to play.  It is in this moment that we should embrace the other side of our demented double think.  While the game is being played, especially against a division opponent, fans should want their team to do well.  Assuming they have a soul and any decency.  There is just no way that I can root for the Eagles to beat the Redskins during a game.  If you are the type of fan that does this, I hope you find someone that can fix what has broken inside of you.   
       
      Pregame Prediction:  Redskins 23 – Eagles 30  
      More interesting game we are missing because we are still watching the Redskins:  Packers – Bears  
      Things I am snacking on:  Brownie.   
      Number of colons used:  Six.  (so far)  
       
      Check back for updates.  I’m going to wander around the room for a while and stretch my legs to get away from a certain well-known ESPN Eagle fan’s boring conversations that my ear phones aren’t blocking out entirely.

The more Democrat candidates that appear on Faux, the more credibility Faux gets. They are State TV, and they need to go. It's like CNN putting Trump on all the time during the 2016 election season.

FTR I didn't think you were implying agecide.  I took it as you were gleefully awaiting the death of a generation.  That's not as bad as wanting agecide but it still makes you a ****ty person.

Not gleefully, it just needs to happen for the country to move in the direction the majority wants it to go. If waiting for some crappy people to die makes me crappy, so be it.

Basically the debates made no difference.  Both Hillary and Trump led going in.  I would assume that it’s safe to say that Biden is your nominee.  Who’s gonna take the VP though?  I’d prefer Harris or Warren.

I believe the Dems don't have a winner take all system for their primaries and caucuses.  If a large number of candidates stay in the race, look for a brokered convention where anyone could win.

Kamala better get 10,000 times more poised really fast or Trump 2.0 is almost a given.

That's one year.  It is a mistake to draw conclusions from one year like that.

 

The debates clearly had an impact in 2008.

I think 2008 is a long time ago politically speaking.  Plus, in 16 we had Bernie and 08 we had Barack.

I'm going to a fundraiser in San Francisco for Pete Buttigieg in a couple of weeks. Dropped $2,900 on it. They better serve some good food!

 

My father is pretty high on the guy. Thinks he is the spark the Democratic party needs.

Quote

Former Vice President Joe Biden (D) on Tuesday pushed back against criticism of his forthcoming climate plan by progressives who have characterized it as a "middle ground" approach to addressing global warming.

 

“You never heard me say middle of the road. I’ve never been middle of the road on the environment,” Biden told reporters in New Hampshire. "Tell her to check the statement that I made and look at my record."


"I don't think she was talking about me," Biden added.

I don't think he will get it, but I love the fact that he is running. I love the diversity the left has with candidates. We have women, people of color, different sexual orientations and religion. I just think Mayor Pete is taking too big of a leap without establishing himself as a candidate. Obama was able to do it, but it was the right guy at the right time. I love that the left is able to put every type of person into the running. Hopefully, no one will be "hurt" when it comes down to the big vote.

Maybe Biden means once a Democrat is in the White House, rule of law will matter to them again?  Who knows....but his statement was a little puzzling.

I do not see this working at all.  Not whatsoever.  A lot of things that can fall through the cracks on limiting interest rates as well as post office banking.  Post Office banking really sounds like a pie in the sky idea that didn't think through the little things.
