I am looking forward to watching former San Francisco Mayor Willie Brown, the first black speaker of the California assembly, address the Democratic Convention on the topic of: “If You Knew Kamala Like I Know Kamala.”

But I’m starting to get the impression that won’t happen.

By the way, contrasting prompts from Duck Duck Go, Bing, and Google:

    This is just so painful to watch. I’m getting 2016 Hillary flashbacks in terms of boredom and stale messaging. They dumped on Bernie (again) who had definite sway, excitement, and a fanatical base. How can they invigorate younger/black voters with this kind of messaging? They’re not offering anything concrete but simplistic platitudes and anti-Trump swill. The lower ranked Democratic voters (the young and POCs) understand they’ll receive little from these crusty old Baby Boomer neoliberals. Who’s feeling invigorated about knocking on doors for Joe Biden and Harris?

    It would be somewhat understandable, if unethical and selfish, had that been what she had done. Second City Cop described her diverting an entire police unit as a private security detail for a building she was not, at the time, in, with the rest of that section of the city underpoliced.

    The cops are not supposed to serve as someone’s no-cost security service; abolish the Secret Service.

    If the mayor feels that the private property or person, along her street, are in risk of harm, she’s welcome to arm herself, join the local militia, or hire a private security firm.

    The argument that political VIPs (the orbital apogee keeps stretching) deserve “free” security services is a big load of crap.

    As an insurance policy, the crooked politicians should try to enact policies that will make citizens content (i.e. so they won’t riot). For instance, by cutting property taxes (and the schools funded by those taxes) by 95%.

    Given that they sabotaged his campaign twice (And why did Gabbard not get media coverage? Female, not white, charismatic, attractive, lots of footage surfing and in military dress uniform? Surely she is what the media tell us they are always looking for?) despite the fact that he would have captured everyone who would have voted for Hilary and enough of the defectors in the rust-belt states that Trump captured to win enough of those states to handily win.

    He would have won in 2016 and he would have won in 2020.

    The only conclusion is that despite their rhetoric what they fear about Trump is the same thing they fear about Sanders, economic populism.

    See also what happened to Corbyn in the UK. It's now been revealed that a constant campaign of sabotaged even leading to historic Labour defeats and Boris and Brexit was waged against him to little media coverage when revealed. Corbyn got a double-dose because he was also not a paid up member of the Israel lobby. The idea that Corbyn's ideas would have made him a liability in the 2010s is insane, the idea that his ideas would have hurt them politically when it was the same defection of working class voters in post-industrial heartlands who had been taken for granted voting for at least a little less immigration and implicitly against economic globalisation with UKIP if they couldn't have non-neoliberal national economic policies.

    Agree.

    Clearly, the Dems are an insider affair: Biden, the quintessential insider, is propped up despite not having the mental chops anymore. Harris came out of the primary gate as a favorite of the donors, but did poorly, yet here she is, instead of someone more popular. And she's from the most blue state, showing the willingness to waste a chance at securing a swing state in service to rewarding insiders.

    So I guess this is how the coalition of the fringes operates: the Politburo will think for you.

  23. OT, but I’ve been watching Seinfeld reruns and during the commercials switching to Joe Biden’s acceptance speech. I just caught the last minute or two. It struck me that it could have been written either by Seinfeld’s team or a Trump saboteur. There was a weird Biden riff on Mark Twain’s line about history not repeating itself but rhyming. Joe garbled that badly enough that I couldn’t figure out his point. A few seconds later he promised that he would usher in the beginning of a new dark age for America. He ended with a weird blessing for the troops, a very strange non sequitur. If this is how Joe performs during a critical, extremely scripted, and intensely rehearsed speech, we can expect a lot of amusement over the next two months. I feel pity for the man. I cannot conceive the motivations of the people who are making him vulnerable to this level of humiliation. That they are doing so speaks eloquently to their fundamental lack of human decency.

    The worse abuse of this is by Richard Michael Daley, the airport wrecker. After he left office, he still had 24 hour protection from the police dept payed for by the taxpayers. The fire department gave free rides to his wife when she went to the doctors. Oddly enough, he never worried about the cops squealing on them to the feds. Note that the media never complained about this. Only recently, has the airport wrecker hired private security. I am not sure if the taxpayers are paying for it.

    Perhaps because Biden's speech sounds like it was written by John Cleese.

    When I started reading the commentariat's adulatory reaction to Joe's maunderings this morning, my first reaction was similar to that I had nearly two months ago, when I watched obvious rioting, looting, arson, assaults on police and bystanders, and other mob violence on the television screen with voice overs describing what was unfolding before my eyes as "peaceful protests".

    Joe's speech was a train wreck, his demeanor was zombie like. A rational and disinterested observer would be forced to the conclusion that he desperately needs medical care in a facility devoted to early stage dementia. But we now live in clown world. The descriptions of his speech bear no relation to the reality.

    One headline on Drudge described the speech as a "barn burner". My immediate thought was that's a brilliant description if the barn which the writer had in mind is Democrat hopes for winning the November presidential election.

    P.S. One question not even righties are asking is this: how did Biden get that large, expensive car collection when he was just a public servant for so many years? A six-figure salary in congress is rich, but it isn’t buy-jerry-seinfeld’s-garage rich. By a long shot.

    So you really have to ask? Insider information in really goes a long, long way in boosting your wealth, particularly when it is coupled with bribes from "interested parties" looking to influence swamp dwellers' decisions. Make some "interested parties" rich, while doing some behind the curtains investments in those same "interested parties"? Gets the moolah coming and going. And tbe best part? Our Wise Solons in Congress Assembled have, for the most part, immunized themselves from charges of insider trading. Nice work if you can get it.

    My reaction:
    Not bad in the 2 1/2 min intro– perhaps the ultimate “And Now A Word About Life Insurance For Your Family” campaigner. Tone very good. Gets shakier after that abstract, cosmic/platonic “knee on the neck.” He’s concerned how he’ll look to idiocracy in 15-20 years, which is misguided albeit not undignified.

    But you can ride instead of tap the pacing brake if you’re mentally on the paragraph after next, which I think he is; FDR-those-were-the-days raconteuring tendency aggravates it. Admirable first-person empathy-rapport (e.g. 10:30 to 11 min) but is it effective? Way less polished on Christmas-list, SOTU-style litanies of: broadband, insurance premiums, student debt, day care, Buy American, yadda yadda. Around ~19:00 a swerve into, yes, Charlottesville, 1930s Europe and Neveragain, came off lacking in the requisite Obama/Warren-esque fustian preacher’s tenor.

    These personability and mall-Santa traits disadvantage him against Trump who is a classic heel. Per K.I.S.S. Joe may be able to land some punches later on very specific points a la Form 1040 pandering (capital gains tax, etc.).

    I've honestly never heard of it. It's clearly another perhaps climactic iteration of the plan to railroad everybody who ever had lunch with Trump and not a serious prosecution. Remember when Podesta's former business partner was imprisoned for doing the same thing Podesta did at the same time and while at Podesta's company? Meanwhile new video has emerged of violent street thug and peaceful protester Marquise "Ministry Of" Love assaulting another motorist, beside the one we knew about. Almost like the whole plan with these illegal roadblocks and agitated young men was to get people beaten up.

    Given that they sabotaged his campaign twice (And why did Gabbard not get media coverage? Female, not white, charismatic, attractive, lots of footage surfing and in military dress uniform? Surely she is what the media tell us they are always looking for?) despite the fact that he would have captured everyone who would have voted for Hilary and enough of the defectors in the rust-belt states that Trump captured to win enough of those states to handily win.

    He would have won in 2016 and he would have won in 2020.

    The only conclusion is that despite their rhetoric what they fear about Trump is the same thing they fear about Sanders, economic populism.

    See also what happened to Corbyn in the UK. It’s now been revealed that a constant campaign of sabotaged even leading to historic Labour defeats and Boris and Brexit was waged against him to little media coverage when revealed. Corbyn got a double-dose because he was also not a paid up member of the Israel lobby. The idea that Corbyn’s ideas would have made him a liability in the 2010s is insane, the idea that his ideas would have hurt them politically when it was the same defection of working class voters in post-industrial heartlands who had been taken for granted voting for at least a little less immigration and implicitly against economic globalisation with UKIP if they couldn’t have non-neoliberal national economic policies.

    You seem to misunderstand the standard usage of "troll" in net-speak.

    FYI, here's Wikipedia's definition of an Internet troll:


    In Internet slang, a troll is a person who starts flame wars or intentionally upsets people on the Internet by posting inflammatory and digressive, extraneous, or off-topic messages in an online community (such as a newsgroup, forum, chat room, or blog) with the intent of provoking readers into displaying emotional responses and normalizing tangential discussion, either for the troll's amusement or a specific gain.
     
    None of the people you've been dinging as trolls come anywhere close to fitting that definition. They're just people who've violated your own personal standards of politesse, according to which it's apparently just fine for Joe Biden to exploit the sad story of his son's death for political gain, but just awful for any of his opponents to point out that that's what he's doing.

    Agree.

    Clearly, the Dems are an insider affair: Biden, the quintessential insider, is propped up despite not having the mental chops anymore. Harris came out of the primary gate as a favorite of the donors, but did poorly, yet here she is, instead of someone more popular. And she’s from the most blue state, showing the willingness to waste a chance at securing a swing state in service to rewarding insiders.

She’s essentially a female Obama and is part of the “Mulatto Mafia” that Sailer talked about with Susan Rice and Eric Holder. That group is Neoliberal through-and-through and will greatly support gentrification efforts if Biden wins. Trump can’t threaten them nearly as much in that regard.

    It is not a usual thing for the dead adult child of a candidate to be constantly mentioned at a national political event.

    I agree there is a certain danger to serving in Iraq at all. But to say Beau Biden was on active duty in Iraq and imply that he was fighting is wrong. He was a part of the Judge Advocate General's Corps. He was in the National Guard working as a lawyer, just like he did at home. I would be proud of him if I were his parent. Trying to get him "extra points" from people by trying to get them to think he fought in Iraq is wrong though for several reasons. It is a lie and it suggests his actual service was inadequate.

  62. Those of you who follow Scott Adams on Twitter can see he has been losing his shit over Biden during this convention. Scott has really been embarrassing himself, and I’m saying this as someone who read his blog in 2015 when he first predicted Trump’s victory.

    At the time Scott would write from the position of the neutral observer and he didn’t support Trump personally, but I think his 2016 success went to his head. He is now firmly in the anti-Democrat camp and spins everything to fit his preconstructed narrative. The guy is only 63; he shouldn’t be losing his marbles just yet.

    The cops are not supposed to serve as someone’s no-cost security service; abolish the Secret Service.

    If the mayor feels that the private property or person, along her street, are in risk of harm, she’s welcome to arm herself, join the local militia, or hire a private security firm.

    The argument that political VIPs (the orbital apogee keeps stretching) deserve “free” security services is a big load of crap.

    As an insurance policy, the crooked politicians should try to enact policies that will make citizens content (i.e. so they won’t riot). For instance, by cutting property taxes (and the schools funded by those taxes) by 95%.

    The worse abuse of this is by Richard Michael Daley, the airport wrecker. After he left office, he still had 24 hour protection from the police dept payed for by the taxpayers. The fire department gave free rides to his wife when she went to the doctors. Oddly enough, he never worried about the cops squealing on them to the feds. Note that the media never complained about this. Only recently, has the airport wrecker hired private security. I am not sure if the taxpayers are paying for it.

Meanwhile new video has emerged of violent street thug and peaceful protester Marquise “Ministry Of” Love assaulting another motorist, beside the one we knew about.

    Perhaps because Biden’s speech sounds like it was written by John Cleese.

    When I started reading the commentariat’s adulatory reaction to Joe’s maunderings this morning, my first reaction was similar to that I had nearly two months ago, when I watched obvious rioting, looting, arson, assaults on police and bystanders, and other mob violence on the television screen with voice overs describing what was unfolding before my eyes as “peaceful protests”.

    Joe’s speech was a train wreck, his demeanor was zombie like. A rational and disinterested observer would be forced to the conclusion that he desperately needs medical care in a facility devoted to early stage dementia. But we now live in clown world. The descriptions of his speech bear no relation to the reality.

    One headline on Drudge described the speech as a “barn burner”. My immediate thought was that’s a brilliant description if the barn which the writer had in mind is Democrat hopes for winning the November presidential election.

    It is not a usual thing for the dead adult child of a candidate to be constantly mentioned at a national political event.

    I agree there is a certain danger to serving in Iraq at all. But to say Beau Biden was on active duty in Iraq and imply that he was fighting is wrong. He was a part of the Judge Advocate General’s Corps. He was in the National Guard working as a lawyer, just like he did at home. I would be proud of him if I were his parent. Trying to get him “extra points” from people by trying to get them to think he fought in Iraq is wrong though for several reasons. It is a lie and it suggests his actual service was inadequate.

    Kamala on the ticket is reminiscent of Biden on the ticket in 2008. Neither of them made any dent nationally when they ran against the person on the ticket above them, but the swamp loved them, and wanted to give them a boost their own talent couldn't get.

    P.S. One question not even righties are asking is this: how did Biden get that large, expensive car collection when he was just a public servant for so many years? A six-figure salary in congress is rich, but it isn't buy-jerry-seinfeld's-garage rich. By a long shot.

    I don't know how many of you watched the Democrats tonight. I did and it was the strangest thing: They included a tribute to Biden's dead son, Beau. They made numerous references to him. They said he served in Iraq which he did but implied he was fighting there and I thought, no, that's not right. So I looked it up and as I remembered, he was doing his regular job there, too, which is being a lawyer.

    It is a disservice to his memory and his service to make it sound like he was fighting over there when he was not, in my opinion.

    It was positively bizarre as the time devoted to him and the constant mentions kept mounting up. I cannot imagine what the purpose of all of it was. If he's elected are we going to hear about Beau Biden every day?

It struck me that it could have been written either by Seinfeld's team or a Trump saboteur. There was a weird Biden riff on Mark Twain's line about history not repeating itself but rhyming. Joe garbled that badly enough that I couldn't figure out his point. A few seconds later he promised that he would usher in the beginning of a new dark age for America. He ended with a weird blessing for the troops, a very strange non sequitur. If this is how Joe performs during a critical, extremely scripted, and intensely rehearsed speech, we can expect a lot of amusement over the next two months. I feel pity for the man. I cannot conceive the motivations of the people who are making him vulnerable to this level of humiliation. That they are doing so speaks eloquently to their fundamental lack of human decency.

    I’ve been trying to understand that too: Why is his family going along with this. Most charitable explanation: They’ve been threatened and they’re afraid.

    God knows why. Right now the Democratic Party is a horror show.

    But really, who else do the Dems have? Their leaders are almost all weirdos and lunatics, angry and bitter about things that don't make sense to normal people in charge of their own lives. Biden, despite his apparent dementia, at least seems sane.

    Is there a connection between Kamala Harris and former Kansas City Royals outfielder Willie Wilson? When I clicked on that suggestion the Google results did bring up several articles on her affair with Willie Brown

    Replies: @res

    I think what is going on is Google is tweaking the search completion heavily, but the search itself not so much.

    So when you click the willie wilson completion the overwhelming association with Willie Brown on the internet takes over and your search acts as you see.

    They’re not offering anything concrete but simplistic platitudes and anti-Trump swill. The lower ranked Democratic voters (the young and POCs) understand they’ll receive little from these crusty old Baby Boomer neoliberals. Who’s feeling invigorated about knocking on doors for Joe Biden and Harris?
     
    Agree.

    Clearly, the Dems are an insider affair: Biden, the quintessential insider, is propped up despite not having the mental chops anymore. Harris came out of the primary gate as a favorite of the donors, but did poorly, yet here she is, instead of someone more popular. And she's from the most blue state, showing the willingness to waste a chance at securing a swing state in service to rewarding insiders.

    So I guess this is how the coalition of the fringes operates: the Politburo will think for you.

    I think many within the black caucus leadership are very wary of Harris. She’s essentially a female Obama and is part of the “Mulatto Mafia” that Sailer talked about with Susan Rice and Eric Holder. That group is Neoliberal through-and-through and will greatly support gentrification efforts if Biden wins. Trump can’t threaten them nearly as much in that regard.

    Question: Why are there so many fat chicks compared to when Boomers ruled the earth? It can’t just be about not working out, since we were generally string beans through our twenties at least, whether we worked out or not. There was not a lot of shaming going on, aside from if a woman was fat, men politely declined asking them out, or had sex with them only if they agreed not to tell anybody. We generally took our lithe frames for granted.

    But now look at 'em!

    You seem to misunderstand the standard usage of “troll” in net-speak.

    FYI, here’s Wikipedia’s definition of an Internet troll:

    In Internet slang, a troll is a person who starts flame wars or intentionally upsets people on the Internet by posting inflammatory and digressive, extraneous, or off-topic messages in an online community (such as a newsgroup, forum, chat room, or blog) with the intent of provoking readers into displaying emotional responses and normalizing tangential discussion, either for the troll’s amusement or a specific gain.

    None of the people you’ve been dinging as trolls come anywhere close to fitting that definition. They’re just people who’ve violated your own personal standards of politesse, according to which it’s apparently just fine for Joe Biden to exploit the sad story of his son’s death for political gain, but just awful for any of his opponents to point out that that’s what he’s doing.

    They dumped on Bernie (again) who had definite sway, excitement, and a fanatical base.
     
    Given that they sabotaged his campaign twice (And why did Gabbard not get media coverage? Female, not white, charismatic, attractive, lots of footage surfing and in military dress uniform? Surely she is what the media tell us they are always looking for?) despite the fact that he would have captured everyone who would have voted for Hilary and enough of the defectors in the rust-belt states that Trump captured to win enough of those states to handily win.

    He would have won in 2016 and he would have won in 2020.

    The only conclusion is that despite their rhetoric what they fear about Trump is the same thing they fear about Sanders, economic populism.

    See also what happened to Corbyn in the UK. It's now been revealed that a constant campaign of sabotaged even leading to historic Labour defeats and Boris and Brexit was waged against him to little media coverage when revealed. Corbyn got a double-dose because he was also not a paid up member of the Israel lobby. The idea that Corbyn's ideas would have made him a liability in the 2010s is insane, the idea that his ideas would have hurt them politically when it was the same defection of working class voters in post-industrial heartlands who had been taken for granted voting for at least a little less immigration and implicitly against economic globalisation with UKIP if they couldn't have non-neoliberal national economic policies.

    I am glad iSteve and some other commentators are burning up precious minutes of their all too short lives to watch this DNC production. Worst Blog Ever.

    Unless there are real decisions being made (rare) or fiery speakers seldom heard (Pat Buchanan, 1992) these things are just dry cat food for starving cats. No one else wants it.

    Both parties tend to overdo the exploitation of minor celebrities and entertainment figures.

    What is hilarious to me is to see the crowd of Woke H-wood arts & crafts dummies parade around and mouth slogans fed to them. They often represent the supposed hipsters and Kool Kids, "we're rich and pretty and you work in retail" but they all dance to the tune of their agents and paymasters. (Now, don't just go off about the Jews, it's not about them or that...)

    A true "bohemian" or modern beatnik (remember them? many prided themselves as intellectuals) would not shill for a failed, demented old man and his whorish running mate. Whose Hindu name no one can pronounce "correctly." So where is the courage of youth? Where are the non herd following dissidents of yore? Today's Woke Youth will say they love the tasteless gruel they tout.

    The 50s-60s Youth Rebellion some here recall has now become a bizarre and ugly parody of those Soviet performers who dutifully praised their sclerotic leaders on cue, and got to enjoy bigger apartments. Here these political stooges get guaranteed appearances on SNL and fat Netflix contracts for their dancing bear acts. When you lift the manufactured fog, this is very clear.

    Anyone doing "creative" work endorsing Trump would be akin to a Soviet conductor in 1938 praising Trotsky.
