What is the Republican Party coming to?

An end, I hope.

The Senate had a closed intelligence briefing to explain to them that the "Ukraine interfered in US elections" is a narrative put forth by Russian intelligence to blame their enemy for a Russian operation and confuse us.

You know who is still spewing this narrative? My traitorous senator, Ron Johnson.

Go figure...

Well, Political mumbo jumbo best describes our current Iowa caucus debacle.

I tend to believe in the power of human stupidity and incompetence, even when it's the DNC, or perhaps especially so. It does look particularly bad when they have been bragging about transparency to have this black hole. More so when Hillary and Obama seem to be bemoaning Sanders.

Whoever the winner was, they lost their prime time network news speechifying opportunity. As it is, every body can claim a victory. Participation trophies for all!

I suspect Sanders was the leader in terms of popular support. If so, he had his glory and possibly his delegates redistributed.
Isn't that a good socialist outcome? By the way, I would welcome a President Sanders. Like Gary Johnson, I usually get about 70% agreement with Sanders on "I Side With" tests. I can live with that.

I'd like to see the caucus replaced by a ranked choice voting paper ballot primary.

The one thing I can say about Sanders is he is remarkably consistent.  One has to at least respect that.  Something I can't say for most politicians.

True.

I guess what I respect is a politician with underlying principles, even when they are wrong. Consistency is a byproduct of integrity.  Most are simply opportunists- greedy or hungry for power and glory.

The substructure of the universe regresses infinitely towards smaller and smaller components. Behind atoms we find electrons, and behind electrons quarks. Each layer unraveled reveals new secrets, but also new mysteries.
