"[Kamala] Harris is not, of course, alone in possessing 'baggage' that will attract criticism from within her own party and intense media scrutiny."

Critics of Bernie Sanders always suspected that conservatives built a massive oppo research file on the Vermont socialist that they would have pushed with hundreds of millions of dollars of negative 'stories' and ads had he won the 2016 Democratic presidential nomination, matching or exceeding the damage they did to Hillary Clinton. Elizabeth Warren has struggled to overcome the stupid but pervasive 'Pocohontas' taunt, along...

You've gotta read, by Douglas Burns, this excellent roundup of a dozen or so of the worst things congressman Steve King (R-IA) has said, dating back decades. Notable that these long, long predate the latest “why does racism have such a negative stigma” remarks that got him in trouble, and ultimately led to his removal from various powerful committees in Congress this week. “I'm a western Iowa newspaper owner who has chronicled @SteveKingIA and his troubling remarks for 2 decades,” tweeted Bu...

RENAISSANCE IN VERMONT. John Stewart’s Restomod MV Agusta 250B

Written by Andrew Jones There’s more than a few Italian moto designs that are so close to perfection, only Tamburini himself could improve on them. It seems that every line, bolt and curve was placed by the hand of il Dio himself. So to set yourself the goal of restomodding one is tantamount to tweaking the Mona Lisa or restoring the Colosseum. And for it to happen in Vermont – of all places – seems even more surreal. Yet that’s exactly what local retiree and self-confessed internal combustio...
