The convention on Univision is beautiful

Astra Sylvid now

Allow me to say, this is some positive coverage

I still can't get over the GOP intern photo

Current demographic trends were on the way to positioning the Democratic Party as a multi-ethnic, multi-racial party representing all segments and ethnic groups in the US. Then along came Trump and white supremacist outreach to the white resentment that drives middle class, lower middle class and lower class white contempt for multicultural America. And it looks like the Democratic Party will achieve its demographic mastery even sooner -- and the Ryan selfie with his Aryan collective behind him, when compared to the Sheila Jackson Lee photo, makes it even more clear.

I'm not a big believer in "pure" ideology or people who try to introduce ideological thinking into policy-making. I believe that politics is a game of bloc-formation and coalition-building, and I believe that the Democratic party is strongest when it incorporates all segments of American life into itself and outreaches to every segment of American society.

VP candidates and LGBTQ issues

All of the VP picks have equality-minded points of view. I can't see shutting out any of the VP picks based on their positions regarding LGBTQ rights.

For me, the next big LGBTQ milestone will be ENDA, addressing workplace discrimination which arguably is one of the most serious threats to this population.

CA primary counted

I had to go to the web page of the California Elections office to find out. The major news sites and the Bernie Sanders fans all fell eerily silent about the impending "flipping" of California that was so big a few weeks ago.

California "conspiracy theories" can end now

California's election page now reports that there are less than one hundred and fifty seven thousand votes left to be counted, a number smaller than the margin between the two Democratic candidates. Thus, one can safely say that the California Democratic primary is over, inasmuch as if every single vote comes in for the underdog, the underdog still loses.

It's being lost in all the hubbub about the FBI and the now-not-gonna-happen indictment, but still. Considering how I've been hearing about how California is going to flip, I thought this seems significant.
