John Kerry in 2004 was the presumptive nominee

I was visiting my family that year I asked what they thought about Kerry.

“ flip flopper “ was what is was hearing from everyone. Fox had its direction and everyone was saying it.

Well it’s 2020, and they have their plan. Everyone in my family is talking about Biden being senile. That is the direction of the Fox campaign.

I hope we are on top of that. I hope they keep Kerry close by as the campaigns will be similar.

Impeachment and REMOVAL

Just taking a moment to think ahead to a future with Conviction in the Senate.

So is removal immediate? You would have to know as the days progress and the signs indicate that the Senate could vote to remove the president then vice President pence moves to more of something like “ President elect“.

Does he get sworn in?

Just seems like it could be a moment of governmental disarray.

Trump's Evangelicals: what they are thinking?

This New Yorker article has some interesting analysis which really concludes that they aren’t all that religious.

More of a white Christian ‘merika f@ck yeah! crowd.
Afraid of immigration and minorities.
They like the kick ass style - screw the libs style that Trump has. Not really that religious.

If we are thinking his followers will turn on him due to his immoral behavior - well it seems unlikely to happen until the very end.

On edit: You might want to compare it to your winning football coach: You’re annoyed that he’s overweight got caught doing drugs. sleeps around, yells at the kids professionally, but dammit he’s got your team on a winning streak and headed to the playoffs and you’ll put up with that.

Barr's Russian Beginnings Report

I thought AG Barr’s investigate the investigators report was eminent.
Then we hear about yelling in the White House.
Then no report.
I think Barr told Trump that just as he got the last problem covered up he went and made a new one with Ukraine. And now the Russian report is worthless.
