October Surprise

WASHINGTON — It has been more than four decades, but Ben Barnes said he remembers it vividly. His longtime political mentor invited him on a mission to the Middle East. What Mr. Barnes said he did not realize until later was the real purpose of the mission: to sabotage the re-election campaign of the president of the United States.

Buying the vote.

I call bullshit. I also know that it takes more than 51 votes (counting kambama) to make anything happen in the senate as it currently is governed.
No different than trump.

"The debate over $2,000 isn't some abstract debate in Washington. This is about real lives," Biden said. "If you send Jon and the reverend to Washington, those $2,000 checks will go out the door, restoring hope and decency and honor for so many people who are struggling right now."

Anybody Catch the CDC Briefing Today?

I know there is an election going on, sportsing, and Kobe Bryant and whatnot... but did anyone happen to catch the CDC briefing? I didn't stick around to listen to the questions.

Needless to say I was a bit disappointed. Short rant to follow.

On Bullshit and Bullshit Detectors

NOTE: The following is not aimed at anyone at Caucus99percent. I'd say the audience here is considerably more immune to bullshit than most – not that any of us are entirely immune. Some bullshit is obvious and some is sneaky – but it's every-fucking-where. This is just a riff on the subject. I'm publishing it here in the spirit of a Public Service Announcement...or for some other reason I can't remember.

Bullshit masquerading as reportage ( rhymes with garbage): Tales of Peter Strzok

Due to the extensive political education I am receiving at c99 University, I have been schooled in reading political opinion disguised as factual reporting. The current Fourth Estate is now, in the words of Newton Minow, a "vast waste land", one which is strewn with land mines to eliminate reflection by the unwary. For those who do not peruse AOL, let me serve you up a helping of just one article from today. It's not that this particular day is unlike another day. It isn't.
