that Pete pose in the "laugh" meme is an expression of what we grew up calling "juevos face."

Captain Hate

Count me in with Grenell fans,

The increase in Republican favorability is because Repubs held the impeachment line in the House and Senate (with a few exceptions in the Senate).

GOP leadership can perform when they decide to do so.

Captain Hate

Plus no more "not who we are", Porch. Hell yeah, that's exactly who we are!

I wonder what it would take for the Federal Elections Board to seize the software?

MissMarple2

Porchlight,

I also think it is because of the rallies. Because I watch on RSBN usually, I get to see all of the local people who speak before President Trump enters or who get called up to the stage to appear with him. They are definitely a more attractive and enthusiastic group than those impeachment managers, who looked like they had been plucked from the Island of Misfit Toys!

Another thing is meeting other Republicans in the crowds at the rallies and seeing what mostly nice people they are!

Also, I think tax refunds help!

GUS

The pathetic Judy Miller just said that TRUMP should apologize because he caused this HOAX.
After all, he asked a foreign govt to "dig up dirt" on a political opponent.

NO SUCH THING HAPPENED.

Captain Hate

Will do, Cha.

Welp they've cut back on TSA precheck. I'd forgotten how much fun it was.

MissMarple2

My long-time friend (over 50 years) who is still a democrat called me today, and when I told her that it was likely some of Hillary's people screwed things up (on purpose) in Iowa, she started in on Trump cheating and I blew my stack.

I told her he was the best president in my lifetime, I liked him, and he is doing a darn good job. I also told her to quit watching MSNBC! I am not putting up with this stuff anymore.

What do you mean, "cut back" ?

Honestly, could you cast movie roles for "inept goofs" more effectively?

JM Hanes

Jules Crittenden on Iowa (via Instapundit):

“[The Dem party's] statement: We found inconsistencies in the reporting of three sets of results. In addition to the tech systems being used to tabulate results, we are also using photos of results and a paper trail to validate that all results match … ”

I was struck by the similarity to the excuse for why the Iowa poll which was held back. They didn't announce the results because of an anomaly in one of the questions posed to what sounded like one respondent (one candidate's name was left out). Hmmm. Small but insurmountable errors, conveniently hard to check.


Thanks to all who responded to my question about gay candidates.

KevlarKid

In any event, if the initial spotty reports are anywhere near in accord with the supposed final tabulations when they come out, the biggest immediate impact from IowaDemCaucusGate is that the Biden Campaign is soon to be history.

Jim,SunnyvaleCA,USA

Insty notes:

After 47 years in politics, Joe Biden has yet to win a single caucus or primary.

MissMarple2

UGH. Indiana weather: we had two days of sunshine and highs in the 60's, today it is raining and we are supposed to get 3-4 inches of snow starting tonight.

I am not pleased. Glad we went to the store this weekend!

Porchlight

Good points, Cap'n and MM.

Now I want to see some grassroots support for R candidates other than Trump, especially House candidates. We need the House back. Trump can't pull everyone over the finish line.

Captain Hate

What do you mean, "cut back" ?

I didn't get it automatically like I have for years previously, including last summer. I asked the lone somewhat friendly TSA person about it and she confirmed that had happened.

KevlarKid

watching Trump these past few years i'm wondering if he's an "Uncle Buck" fan.

Captain Hate

Kevin McCarthy did a good job herding cats in the House regarding impeachment. True leadership.

Thomas Collins

I suppose, Jim,Sunnyvale,CA,USA, if the tabulations are so corrupted that Iowa Dems decide on an alternate approach to awarding delegates and don't release official final results from yesterday's caucus, Team Biden can always claim that Joe tied for first place (with everyone at zero)!

MissMarple2

Captain Hate,

One of the advantages Trump has is that he's worked in TV for a long time and instinctively knows how to stage an event and how important appearances are.

Seriously, look at the glamorous Trump family, well-dressed, well-spoken, smart, and then look at that crew of impeachment managers! No comparison! The young voters aren't going to flock to Jerry Nadler or Adam Schiff, are they? HA! Shot themselves in the foot again!

Thomas Collins

Who'd a thunk that on the day after the Iowa caucuses, Bill Weld would have more certified caucus votes than any of the Dems!

MissMarple2

Running out for a second. Back ASAP, as I don't want to miss any of the run-up to tonight.

So the MSM has a decision to make; to cover Trump's SOTU or the fiasco in Iowa. It's a total lose-lose.

Peachmania is getting drowned out and obviously, most of the nation doesn't give a flying leap what a bunch of crooked blue state grifters tried to pull over their eyes.

Little Brother Bloomberg just led with his chin and lost the 300 million gun vote.

I'm just worried about a hail Marx pass by these cretins. They are becoming more and more desperate and the gravy trainers want to keep their con game going at all costs.

Somewhere in DC, someone high up in the Party is in the fetal position repeating "this can't be happening" over and over again.

JMH, I’m pretty sure you know my thoughts on your post.

The Infamous Ignatz

Nate Silver says the Iowa Caucasus Mole Hill mash-up hurt Bernie Sanders' momentum. He also made up a bunch of meaningless numbers and statistics and probabilities to bolster his opinion. Disregard them.

Jane

I’ve been laughing about Iowa all day. Nothing exemplifies the difference between the right and the left this election cycle more than that.

Thomas Collins

Apart from whether Team Biden would be on solid legal ground in an attempt to enjoin release of partial results, I think as a policy matter partial results shouldn't be released. Either wait for the final tabulations, or if it is decided that no final tabulations would be reliable, allocate delegates in some other manner.

henry

Jane, ll:07: "There are a lot of conservative gays out there - the ones who pay attention. And I do think gay marriage is pretty mainstream these days. Where is it still illegal?"

I've been gone to yoga--so am answering this now.

I didn't comment on whether gay marriage is legal or illegal. I didn't intend to get into a debate about gay marriage. I was talking about the 'power' behind the 'push' for it: "US News & World Reports - Every time they have voted on marriage—32 states overall—they have voted to preserve traditional marriage." But, again and again, judges overturned the decision of those voters. Obergefell v. Hodges decided it in the Supreme Court.

My comment was simply about the commitment, the money, and the power behind making it legal.

This was not a comment about your friend (Amy?) or any gay married friends you have.

It was about the dedication and money behind fighting those expensive battles in court.

Joan,

I didn't take it that way. I was always of the opinion that gays would have been smarter to make their unions something different, so at least it would be easier to end them if they chose.

BTW here is my theory on Iowa. First of all, all the people running the software are ex Hillary employees. So I think it was done to help Biden who will, if nominated ask Hillary to be his VP, and then be let go for his obvious dementia.

The Infamous Ignatz

Justice Antony "Dignity" Kennedy declared marriage a sacred civil right all across the fruited plain to homosexuals, but not to other people who wish to get married in a form other than a two person union, presumably because Mormons, polygamists, polyamorists and gals who want to marry their dogs and guys who want to marry their cars aren't deserving of Solomonic Antony's dignity seal-of-approval, in a completely logical and rational decision that totally won't come back to bite us in the ass.

I note that the coronavirus genetics comparison with bats came from Wuhan, but I believe the results.

It is easy enough to replicate, since there are cases around the developed world and bat genomics must have been done. Nearly every critter has been by now.

Jane, your post is as interesting as considering a battle between a snake and a mongoose.

I don't think HRC would take the VP position. Think she'd insist on the top spot, but, what do I know? :) All of the combinations are repellently fascinating. Biden/HRC. Sanders/OcasioCortez. Warren/Buttigieg. HRC/Buttigieg. Biden/Gabbard (I'll bet he'd like to sniff her hair.)

What about Sanders/Abrams?

First AA female Veep who, if 78 year old Sanders won, would be in a great position to become first AA female POTUS.

If either Sanders or Biden is the nominee, sane voters will take a very hard look at who the running mate is. While Pressley is probably the most sane member of the squad, I suspect many voters, even some Democrats, will not consider her presidential material.

GUS

if COMRADE BERNIE wins, he'd better choose someone
that can attract lucid sane voters as his VP.

CH, re pre-check, occasionally I've had it not show up on my (electronic) boarding pass at first, and then it later miraculously appears. Something to do with the timing of when I put my TSA number in the online booking. Of course if you print out the pass that won't happen. :) I'm not aware of any cutback. I recall mine being good for 5 years, and my renewal may be coming up. I'd like to think they'd notify me but that's probably too much to ask.

DrJ

Pre-check is nice, but not always needed. I flew into and out of Burbank a couple of months ago. There were no people -- none! -- in any TSA line at all.

Of course, then there's Dulles...

CH, if you are not a paid up member of the TSA Pre-check program, your airline can give you pre check, if they chose to do so, when you book your ticket (and they may if you use their credit card to book and such).

If you are traveling w someone who has it,and they book your ticket with theirs, you will get it as well.

Otherwise--you are traveling steerage, and will have to endure the indignities which go along with that.

All this talk about who will be chosen for VP gives me the creeps. It reminds me that the VP choice who can (and has) become president is chosen for the basest of political motives, regardless of competence (cf. Biden). I wish we could have a constitutional amendment to fix this. However, I don't know what that fix would be, as the original design was defective as well.

JimSunnyvale,

I just saw you comment from earlier today about the cold winds yesterday. I didn't know that Northern California was affected by the winds as well. Happily, things have been nice calm today, but it's still cold.

Sixty degrees to me is practically freezing. It's going down to 38° tonight. Brrrrr! That's why WE ARE NOT GOING TO MOVE TO IDAHO! It's a lovely state with great people, but the cold weather would be too much for this California girl. We'll just have to fight the good fight in California and beat them from within.
