Keep private money out of election administration

State lawmakers may not be experts on everything, but there’s one subject on which their expertise is beyond question. State elected officials know a lot about state elections. They also know a lot about fundraising, and how much it costs to run an effective get-out-the-vote effort. They know about campaign finance laws, and contribution limits, and how hard it is to raise money. They know where their voters live, and where the other team’s voters live. So it’s interesting that a number of state...

"The assumption that Harris is a bad politician is largely based on her 2020 Democratic primary run. It’s true that Harris wasn’t the greatest candidate."

"That said, Harris, like Sens. Kirsten Gillibrand (N.Y.), Amy Klobuchar (Minn.) and Warren, never really had a chance to win. After the shock of Hillary Clinton’s loss, Democratic voters were committed to running a man against Trump. And there was really never a chance that Democrats were going to nominate a Black woman. But many Democrats were also never going to say any of that directly, forcing them to look for ways to ding Harris and the other female candidates — 'bad campaigns!' — to avoid ...

Why do supporters of Kamala Harris portray her as faceless?!

There's some discussion this week of a ridiculous cookie Harris's people handed out: Some people are referring to that as a cookie "with her face on" it, but it's quite distinctly a cookie depicting her with no face.Last October, I showed you this really bad sign, which we'd seen in our neighborhood: Why would you show a politician you support as having no face? One horrible answer would be: Oh, but it does show her face. It shows the facial trait that matters: The color of the skin of...
