Now, I know I’m being totally narrow minded, and shallow, but he speaks, is way more informed, and is self aware more than what, stereotypically, someone of his appearance is thought to be.
He probably just got done watching a bunch of Yang videos online, his speeches are pretty standard, Yang stays on message and doesn't change much, that or the guy is a plant, the fact that he talked about Trump and WWE makes me think he's legit though lol.

And Blizzardcon is under a month away? It's going to be glorious. I bet they don't allow any public comments like they did last time.

It'll make this awesome rekt moment pale in comparison.

They also had a death in the family, I believe it was his daughter in law died of cancer so it would probably be hard to sound too up beat with all of that going on. I don't think he's done, he can't keep the schedule he was keeping but none of the other candidates were pushing that hard either, hell Biden is doing the fewest events of them all I believe. As long as Bernie stays in good health he should be ok, he's got a ton of money behind him to keep him going and he can increase his TV and online ad campaign to help offset not doing as many rallies. They just need to make sure to rest him a day or two before each debate, he can't have that hoarse voice again like he did last time.

I can't see what is going to happen that would shake the momentum in his favor. Plenty of time but the perception of his health isn't going to go away.

Its looking like Biden vs Warren

Heard today that CREW (Ethics watchdog, forget the acronym) reported that the biggest government spender of money at the Trump hotel (which, also has been reported recently to have had a rash of huge bookings and the rooms sitting unused) is... Turkey.

And Trump opened the door for our allies in Turkey to attack our Kurdish allies who hobbled ISIS (without using our combat troops).

Wonder how much quid he got for that pro quo when Erdogan called.

Yeah I'm not expecting him to pull ahead but I also don't expect him to drop out, he had the biggest haul out of anyone last quarter and they are all small donors who can keep donating because they didn't donate the max on the first try like Biden's donors mostly did. We'll see, I know a lot of left leaning youtube political channels have been sort of digging at Warren's electability and her "honesty" to try to build Bernie up and I wish they'd stop that, I really don't think it helps him at all.

I'd boycott Blizzard but since Destiny 2 moved off their Battle.net to Steam (thank goodness) I don't play anything Blizzard anyway.

Yeah hopefully if the time comes that its clearly over he gets out the way quickly. His supporters and maybe even his own staff will make this a lot uglier even if he doesn't do a negative thing himself.

I read the unnamed congressman is likely Pete Sessions. This article from a few days ago gives some background. This scandal keeps netting more and more people.

ALL of it will lead back to the soviet union.
