Sen. David Perdue’s (R-GA) seemingly purposeful mispronunciation of Sen. Kamala Harris’ (D-CA) first name during President Trump’s campaign rally on Friday appears to have worked in Democratic rival Jon Ossoff’s favor. By Sunday evening, Ossoff raised more than $1.8 million from at least 42,000 donors since Perdue’s controversial and viral moment, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. During his appearance at Trump’s rally in Macon, Georgia on Friday, Perdue — who sits on the Senate B...

Trump/Biden by the numbers

The mainstream press is presenting crazy pole results, and suggesting various battleground states are in play. I decided not to trust them. Instead, I looked back at the last four presidential elections and noted which states have flipped. Then I looked at recent trends since Bush/Gore, and tried to figgure which solidly support the Dems, and which support the GOP. Four yrs ago the Dem canidate got 230 EV. I believe Biden has a solid base of HI, CA, OR, WA, IL, NY, VT, NH, MA, CT, RI, NJ, DE, M...

Clerisy heresy.

I'm reading by Tunku Varadarajan (WSJ).  [Fred Siegel] sees [President Trump] as a champion of "bourgeois values," under threat from the "clerisy," Mr. Siegel's word for the dominant elites who "despise" those values. He regards Mr. Biden as a "captive" of this clerisy, and running mate Kamala Harris as the "embodiment of it."... By 2012... Mr. Siegel had developed an exceedingly low opinion of President Obama, whom he describes as "a faux intellectual with preacher's cadences and an academic...

David Perdue (R-GA) is responding to criticism of what some have called a willfully racist move — claiming that the Georgia senator on Friday “didn’t mean anything by” what looked like a purposeful  mispronunciation of the first name of the senator’s colleague of nearly four years, Democratic vice presidential nominee Kamala Harris.
