    It seems to have worked well for Joe Biden to be the Democratic nominee right now. The other major contenders for the nomination had issues, that would not intersect well with the current moment.

    It was mindblowing to learn about that, to consider how radically different the world may have been before that.

    Wouldn't the next Republican president be able to expand the court as well?

    Hell, if it's obvious that Democrats intend to expand the court, why shouldn't Trump & McConnell start putting in new...

    With about a quarter of the vote in, results are not looking good for Steve King in his House primary.

    He is currently down seven points.

    Granted, I'm probably the most likely here to speak out against ancedotal evidence, but I'm curious what kind of conversations you guys are hearing about the protests.

    This does seem to be high for actions with limited precedent with the combination of widespread protests and a highly contagious pandemic.

    This probably depends on a case by case basis.

    I would say that the mid 80s to the 90s are probably the dark age. One guy wrote a book about it.

    There are some major differences between the groups. The tea party...
