The sad truth is that whenever AOC gets involved with something, it turns into drama and chaos with her being painted as a victim.

Might be why they only gave her 6 minutes.

From what I’ve seen of AOC, I like her. I can see why Republicans are afraid of her/obsessed with her: She’s smart, tough, pretty, young.  

OAC and Katie Porter are two of the newer congresswomen that I always like seeing.

That was very, very, very good. If you don't believe me, look online. When even Laura fùcking Ingraham is giving props, the GOP has a problem.


If not for, well, everything else in his favor, I'd say that moment where Joe choked up about Beau on camera won the election.

I see that CNN already has their talking points in line (the same ones I'm seeing from a lot of fauxgressives on Twitter), having Angela Rye in a major role to talk about Biden not being good enough because of a lack of policy proposals. 


(spoiler alert - when Democrats give policy proposals, the same media voices call them "wonky" and say they are too out of touch with the regular folks - the trick is nothing the Democrats ever do is right for Trump-supporting outlets like CNN) 


The "they aren't giving a reason to vote for them" talking points are everywhere, just as they are every 4 years. All I will say is if people don't have a reason to vote this year, they never will. I just give up on those people at this point.


I also saw a lot of handwringing over the lack of Tulsi and Julian Castro. I'd guess that Harris' people wanted nothing to do with Tulsi and Biden's didn't with Castro. I can't say they are wrong in either case...especially Tulsi's.


I don't know when I'm going to watch Biden's speech, but I did watch Jill Biden's and I thought she did a very good job, especially when she talked about the family she became a part of. She was just the right blend of natural and polished.

It's embedded in the post above yours, when you have the time to watch it.  Just the speech.  No commentators.
