It's like when Bill Maher said he hadn't moved his politics, politics has moved - and he's on the same side of things as......Darth Vader's daughter.....
Politics makes for strange bedfellows, but Maher makes a good point. A good number of us haven't moved, but the goalposts damn sure have. If someone had told me back in 2000 that one day the Bush and Cheney families would be almost heroes to the establishment Dems, I would have laughed out loud. (Then I would have called the nearest asylum and told them I found their lost patient.)

Same for if someone told you back then that the republican party would abandon democratic principles entirely.

little Marco isn't polling too well

The problem is that in that poll she only beats him in ages 18-44. Every other group he gets 50% or higher. I just don’t trust college age or young voters because every time they are no shows like Marco. I still see it as a safe seat for the Republicans.

She'll lose - and it won't be close.

Nobody should be getting excited about a single outlier poll that is basically within the MOE three months before the election.

And God forbid if the Dems lose the Senate (their chances of holding it look pretty good since the GOP insists on nominating brain dead nominees), the post-mortem will be, "We spent X million in Texas and Florida for pipe dreams, but if we had just spent it elsewhere, we'd still have the Senate."

it is Mike Meyers best film and I will die on that hill


speaking of dying

LOL, yeah. It's a race downhill for that senate seat for sure. Out of all the dumb things Trump has done, his endorsement of Oz is one of the biggest what-the-frick moments since he left office. Even the Trumpers were stymied.

The Alabama Secretary of State debate is supposed to take place October 11th. My Libertarian opponent will be participating, but not Wes "Absent" Allen. He says his schedule is all booked up through the election!

Allen wants to operate in the dark. He refuses to debate me because he doesn't want to admit his objectively backward ideas to the people of Alabama. This is what Allen's plan looks like:
My opponent is actively trying to decrease voter turnout and suppress the voices of Black Alabamians in our election by promising to get rid of the Electronic Registration Information (ERIC) system, which is trusted by most states as the most effective way to perform cross-state voter registration checks, if he's elected on day one.

Removing the State of Alabama from enrollment in ERIC without a contingency plan would leave voter rolls insecure, decrease access to voter registration, and reduce election integrity.

"Absent" Allen doesn't want to draw more attention to this, because the ERIC system has bipartisan support. In fact, Secretary of State John Merrill credits the ERIC system with making our voter registration system more efficient and effective than ever. It allows us to check for duplicate voter registrations across state lines, inaccurate registrations, and deceased voters.​
