The Republican Govenors who stuck to Trump like a wet tongue to dry ice are now beggining to peel off as the results of the Trump folly of reopening ASAP has turned into the greatest out break of Covid on Earth.
Texas, Florida and others are reversing course but stopping and reversing are quick for trains and cruise ships when compared to entire states in an exponential pandemic.

I think Trump has exceeded Picketts charge at Gettysburg as far as folly and tradgedy goes.

Blackish star Anthony Anderson had this to say about Kanye's announcement: "Wow, President Kanye. That's right—Yeezy wants to be Preezy and you know, laugh all you want, but this would be historic because, while this country has had a Black president, we've never had a crazy Black president."

The actor continued, "It should be pointed out that Kanye still has to register with the Federal Election Commission, collect enough signatures to get on the ballot, create a campaign platform and he's already missed the deadline to file as an independent candidate in a bunch of states. But other than that," Anderson concluded, "he good."

Well, primary elections are distinct from national elections,
especially when the races are for official state posts.
Still.

Yesterday was the Arizona primary.
Old Joe Arpaio ran for his old office of sheriff,
and was defeated by only 500 votes for the incumbent.

Every vote really DOES count ...

At latest report,
the Republican primary election in
Arizona's Maricopa County, for county sheriff
(Greater Metropolitan Phoenix et al.),
seems decided.
In the previous election, Democrat candidate Paul Penzone defeated
longtime incumbent Joe Arpaio.
This Democrat incumbent will face challengers in November.

This past Tuesday, two candidates fought for the Republican candidacy:
Joe Arpaio, now in his '80s,
and his former deputy, Jerry Sheridan.
Although the race was close,
Sheridan now has a 6,000+ lead, in votes, over Arpaio.

(Whew)

No surprise Kamala Harris was selected. She is an experienced campaigner. I was hoping for Warren, but she's also older, and Susan Rice has a lot of experience but has never run a campaign. The Trumpites would revive their Bengazi claims (four people died, all hell broke loose as far as they are concerned, those who are silent about 160,000 dead from COVID-19).

It's a gutsy choice on Biden's part. I think of it as a reverse of Obama selecting an older, known, white male to stabilize his campaign. In this case it's the old, too well known, too white, too male picking a younger female of color who can get out there and provide some energy to balance the perceptions of the main runner. I think it shows some guts in the old boy. Now I've got to hear from my California contacts to see what they think and feel about it.

If Biden wins the presidency his age makes possible the second non-white President, and the first female President.

Larry Elliot on today's Guardian website. Yanks, take nothing for granted. You could easily be in for four more years.

...the polls have started to tighten a bit and are likely to close still further over the coming weeks, because Trump has three things going for him.

The first is that the number of new Covid-19 cases appears to have peaked, with definite signs of progress in some of the bigger states such as Florida, Texas and California. What happens to the virus over the coming months will have a material impact on the state of the economy.

The second – somewhat ironically – is that activity in China has bounced back more rapidly than expected, and this is keeping global stock markets buoyant. Here, Trump is getting the best of both worlds: he piggybacks on Chinese growth while at the same time getting tough with Beijing over trade and human rights – something that plays well with voters.

Finally, he has the benefit of being the incumbent, which allows him to pull off stunts like the signing of executive orders to provide fresh support to the unemployed. Under the separation of powers, Congress holds the purse strings in the US so Trump’s initiative is unlikely to amount to much, but that’s not the point. This is all about who gets blamed for the impasse between Republicans and Democrats over the next phase of stimulus.

To win, Trump needs nothing to go wrong and everything to go right in the coming months: no surges in Covid-19, no setbacks to the economy, no share price crashes on Wall Street. It is a tall order but Biden should take nothing for granted.

connecting the now-defeated Joe Arpaio with

How Joe Arpaio's Fate in Arizona could be a Window into Trump's


As to Arizona, and the Maricopa County sheriff:
it ain't over yet.
That was the Republican primary contest this month (August),
and Arpaio was defeated by Jerry Sheridan, Arpaio's former deputy,
who becomes the Republican candidate in November.
Sheridan will face
incumbent Sheriff Penzone, the Democrat,
who defeated Arpaio four years ago.

Everyone trying to be all cuddly and consensual gets a bit boring after a while.

But the Michelle and Barack Obama both did a remarkably good job. The trouble is, by contrast, it made most of the others look pretty routine.

The most effective bits I saw were the occasion snatches of Trump, which should be enough to motivate a landslide for Biden. Unfortunately, incredible though it seems, there are millions of Americans whose stomachs do not appear to turn over at the very thought of the man.

Q Anon isn't boring but they have crazy beliefs.
Their catch phrase is 'where one goes we all go'. ??
Perhaps they need a national anthem; I have a humble submission...

Well, I saw the thing comin' out of the sky
It had the one long horn, one big eye
I commenced to shakin' and I said "ooh-eee"
It looks like a purple people eater to me
It was a one-eyed, pedophile, flyin' purple people eater
(One-eyed, pedophile, flyin' purple people eater)
A one-eyed, pedophile, flyin' purple people eater
Sure looks strange to me
Well it came down to earth and it lit in a tree
I said please Purple People Eater, don't eat me
I heard him say in a voice so strong
"I wouldn't eat you 'cause you're Q anon"
It was a one-eyed, pedophile, flyin' purple people eater
One-eyed, pedophile flyin' purple people eater
One-eyed, pedophile, flyin' purple people eater
Sure looks strange to me
I said Mr. Purple People Eater, what's your line?
He said "eatin' purple people and it sure is fine
But that's not the reason that I came to land
I want to rule the world and eat all the kids"
Well bless my soul, pedophile, flyin' purple people eater
Pigeon-toed, pedophile, flyin' purple people eater
(We wear short shorts) democratic people eater
What a sight to see
And then it swung from the tree and it lit on the ground
And it started to eat, really eatin' fetus'
It was a crazy cannibal eatin' beast
(Sing a boop-boop, a-boopa lopa lum bam boom)
Well, bless my soul, pedophile flyin' purple people eater
Pigeon-toed, pedophile, flyin' purple people eater
"I like short shorts!" democratic people eater
What a sight to see
Well, he went on his way, and then what do ya know?
I saw him last night on a TV show
He was eatin babies, and was raping some kids
Playin' politics like Hillary Clinton
"Q Anon!"


it sounds like q-Anon is actually against abortion, Catholics, Jews, Islam, democrats, history, other races, trust in government and knowledge, however they have wackos who take it all litterally.
It sounds like a new internet flavor of the KKK.

The more he shows himself the better. I know there is a hard core of people who actually adore him, but a large part of the minority of Americans who voted him in were surely holding their noses while voting for him for other reasons. There's only so long you can hold your nose.

One thing that makes me gasp is how such an extremely unpleasant man can dare to talk about anyone as being nasty. Surely being nasty is his "Unique Selling Proposition"?

Interesting to have confirmation now from his own big sister that he really is even nastier than he parades himself in public as being.

Are there a lot fewer polling stations in the States than there are here in England? Where I live we had a turnout of 64% last time, and no queuing at all so far as I could see. I know you have a much more complicated set of votes than we ever do, but that would just need a few more voting booths than the two we've got in our local school. The number of potential voters doesn't increase even if it takes longer for each one to vote.

The number of *potential* voters doesn't change, but *actual* voting declines with long lines. For starters, polls close at a certain time, not when everyone in line has voted.
