    It's been stated before, but this isn't just Cinnamon and Manchin being the weirdos, it seems like the party as a whole has no appetite to actually do anything meaningful.

    It's worth repeating ad nauseum but looking at the Democratic Party as just the GOP with a little more palatable views on certain things makes everything they're doing (or not doing) look clearer.

    I mean for all the shit Reagan deservedly gets for being a monster, he also had a D majority Senate for the entirety of his time in office, and D control over all Congress for part of his 2nd term.

    but its also generally futile to compare election year ratings to a subsequent non-election year

    especially when Cable news had a captive, lockdown audience in 2020.

    ok I must have missed something, because if people are suggesting that we don’t teach Dred Scott in law school for whatever reason, then that person is undeniably wrong.

    I think he’s talking about how the discussion about Dred Scott is framed. I think he’s arguing that it needs to be taught as an indictment of the concept of originalism.

    I just skimmed that article and one of the law professors was in fact talking about not teaching it or assigning only a couple paragraphs because it’s too hurtful to discuss. He also skipped Plessy.

    he’s doing his students a great disservice regardless of opining on originalism.

    I can’t speak to those schools, but Dred Scott and Plessy were well covered at UF. I later wrote my 3L paper on Lochner v. New York and the premise of which — though not quite as refined in my own mind at the time — was essentially just how shitty strict interpretation principles can be when you wind up with absurd results.

    I let my hate for the American Conservative fuel my need to vote in every single election. I know that they are out there... voting every single time... with their nationalist white supremacy and their utter hatred for Progressives, BIPOC and LGBTQ people on their mind.

    Elections are a zero sum game and I don't want those people to win. Fuck those people.

    Re: Franken

    would a pub have resigned in a similar situation? If the answer is no, then franken shouldn’t have either.

    that’s not to say I don’t think he should have (bc he should have), but Dems are playing a diff game than pubs and it shows. Acting like the “bigger man” party is stupid and you’re stupid for supporting it.

    He was accused by 9 women. Accusations ranging from forcibly open mouthed kissing to grabbing a couple of women's ass to holding another's breast etc. He apologized in a statement that didn't really include a denial.

    I mean I get your point of view and I agree he should have resigned.
    I just think it’s silly Dems play by a different set of rules than pubs and try and act holier than thou with these things. If a pub was in that same situation they’d have prob just road it out and waited for the media to shift to a new scandal
